How to I instal the hi-res scenery into Mac version of Fligh

Postby WillCA » Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:14 am

I am new to flightgear and just downloaded a hi-def scene for "w120n30", about 889MB in size. The file downloaded as a .zip file, but FlightGear will only load .tar.gz files in the Add-Ons section of the initial window. How can I either: Manually install the files, or, get .tar.gz files of the Hi-Def Scenery?

Thanks -Will

If that's scenery from the FG site, the launcher actually has an option to install it - you can select the file and ask the software to unpack and install it for you.

@WillCA: which version of FG are you running? there was a problem with scenery installs but it has been fixed... i don't recall if it was fixed in 2018.2 or not... it should absolutely be in 2018.3 when it is released in another few weeks...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
