Aerosoft just released Helgoland for AeroflyFS2

  • I find the guilty, if i delete the Aerosoft ortho imagery finish by ae58 (match with this Bussum area where i have my problem) everything work fine now for me. And thanks Ray for the airport coordinates file :thumbup:. Now i can fly in this great scenery :P

  • BTW, Aerosoft released Hergoland version 1.01 that allows the instalation of the scenery outside of the C: documents folder.

    Cheers, Ed

  • I’m not sure where your main.mcf file is located since Steam is installing Aerofly directly to your D: drive. I will download the v1.01 today and see if I can help you find where you direct the installer to a non-standard location.

  • I am puzzled by this... do you first have to modify the main.mcf file?

    The installer I downloaded claims to be 1.01 but I didn't see any such option.

    Yes, I think you should modify your main.mcf file first, adding (if not already present) the line corresponding to the folder you want to add as an alternate user content folder. There are previous posts in this forum on how to do that.

    Additionally, I've posted minutes ago at the Aerosoft forums (for AFS2) that the installer seems to be the same of v1.00. I downloaded the supposedly new v1.01 today and still not finding the way to set a different path and also the offshore platforms are not yet seen as a starting locations.

    NOTE: I was trying to install v1.01 on my laptop only for the moment, on which I don't have an alternate install path, so I must install everything in my C: drive. Obviously there is no modification on its main.mcf file in this setup.

    Hopefully somebody at Aerosoft will explain or check the installer.

    Cheers, Ed

  • Hello. Are we going to ‘see’ it on Steam too? My AFS2 is the steam version.

    From Europe, I only have Innsbruck; I would really like to buy Helgoland too…

    I have the AeroflyFS Steam version, too. The Aerosoft download works fine with it.


    Kind regards, Michael

    It may work fine but I myself prefer to purchase addons for AFS2 on Steam: makes reinstalling the sim so much easier!

  • There are obvious advantages for addons to come directly from the 3rd party developers like FSWidgets, Orbx, and Aerosoft, and of course the ease of buying them from Steam, when available. The instant availability is more important to some users, like myself, while the ease of having all the addons monitored and updated, when necessary, by Steam. Usually the availability from Steam is delayed, sometimes, days, other times for weeks.


    I say, to each his own.


    Many developers tend to shy away from Steam whenever possible due to the big bite of the sales price taken by Steam, usually 30%, which tends to drive up the retail price for everyone.


    I am just appreciative that we have 3rd party developers actively building add ons for us. I was just communicating with yet another one overnight and again this morning with very encouraging news of the progress. Sorry, I can't tell you more now, but it certainly will be well received by many. ^^8o:S

    I'm holding off buying it until its on Steam. I don't want lots of different installers/updaters. I'll make an exception for Orbx... I do want those wind turbines though !!

    Now you got me interested...

    I'm absolutely with you here. Aerosoft support is not the best in the industry, so it's better if everybody cpuld obtain the installer via different sources, and Steam is the best.
