Great
A readme file is easily created (in the liveries dir)

Will put this high in my todo list priority.

About "easily contacting"; Do you suggest listing email addresses? I will feel a bit cautious over that more sensitive topic

Thanks Gooney!

Just the names as posted on the database should be enough, the people involved can usually be found through the forum so there's no real need for any other data.
Currently running 2018.1 but if it doesn't stop crashing I'm taking up tiddlywinks!

I was a bit thinking along the lines of maybe in the future using <description>, <author> and <references> tags could be used in the livery's xml file in a way similar to what sometimes is used in the aircraft-set.xml file.

I think that's probably the best way, I did it with my AI models and if I create any more liveries will add it to them, if I remember ;)

@TheMadGreek, @Gijs, and Others interested in the topic of Aircraft size expansion after liveries installation

FGDATA next with submodules: http://sourceforge.net/p/fgdata/submodules/ci/next/tree/

(After the Livery database import got completed)
==several other arcraft improvements and new models added. So difference is not accurately depicting only liveries' size

Code: Select all
@./Aircraft
$du -sh
15G
$du -h
15085436


Difference::
15085436-13816420=1.21GB
