Is Flight! and content still available?

Recommended Posts

If you have FSX on an old machine there is an option on the command line when you convert the FSX scenery to save it as a .flightAddon file.  You can then copy that to your other computer and install it like any other addon without having to install FSX.

That's excellent news, I will have to try that. Sorry to bother you, but do you by any chance remember the command line 'command' that does this or can I found it somewhere?

You only need to append /a to the usual command:

<Path to Flight Toolkit>\ContentConverter.exe fsx /i:<path to FSX folder> /o:<Path to temporary folder to convert the assets> /a

Ok, job done, converted FSX world scenery with Stonelance's Flight Tools.

I was able to install FSX still, but not activate it, but I didn't want it anyway, so all is fine now!

I'm gonna use the '/a' switch to store the world scenery for later date (2027) when I need it next time.

Hi ALL, (I hope this group is still around?)

 

I am going back to Flight after some time and have had to use Stonelance's Flight Tools to do the reinstall. (Thank you to Stonelance's and any other involved).

I still have to do the port the FSX scenery across but I see new Aerocaches listed but I need the "Downloadable content".

Where can I get this from? (Sorry If I have mist it in all the posts)

 

I await your reply.

Thank you

Oz Flyer

David.

Hi David.

If you have already installed Flight using Flight's toolkit, you can download a lot of stuff from the "addon manager" that comes with it. If you want to port the FSX scenery, you must have FSX installed in your computer (can be the Steam version) and follow the instructions written in a document stored this folder: Other useful Add-ons /FSXWorld addon /FSXWorld addon procedure. You can find this information here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmXbXm2QYzhEe5fiZk4EYT-Qczk

You can use wherever you want from it, enjoy ✈️.

Oscar.

Are you getting the conversion though? Converting with Flight Tools generates some errors every time anyway.
