Aircraft in select list- doesn't display in sim

Aircraft in select list- doesn't display in sim

Postby Jim » Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:56 pm

Newbie, so forgive me if this seems like a silly question. I downloaded the zip file from https://github.com/FGMEMBERS/A320Family and placed the A320-Family folder in the Aircraft folder under data. The aircraft names show up in the selection list and when I run the sim I see a graphic picture of the aircraft. But when the sim finally fully loads there is no flight model, cockpit, etc... Am I missing a step?

Hi Jim, welcome!

When you download an aircraft from GIT, you will have to unzip, rename without the -master. and place in an additional aircraft folder, which you can tell the launcher where it is. Make sure that when you open the A320 folder, you see a few files and folders, if you don't, and see another folder, make sure that folder goes directly into your aircraft folder.

Additionally, I do recommend redownloading this plane every few days, as a lot of updates get done on it.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Perfect, that was the trick. Thanks! Looks like I need to download an update but just flew the 321 so think we're good.
