    With the trouble we have been having with planes purchased directly through justflight recently (now fixed) and the steam sales, I bought the Hawk and today the Falke through steam. My question is where does steam download the user manuals to? If purchased directly from Justflight there is a sub directory called manuals created for each plane but I cannot see that in the steam version installs.?(

    Hi Carl, another thing I should have mentioned is that I can only fly in my Boston in OpenGL. If I go to Vulkan then I crash back to Steam. I am not sure if that is a problem with my laptop which has dual video cards (3gb NVidia and a lower spec 2gb one) of if this is one of the things that might be fixed in the next Boston_ma update. Either way, it works fine in OpenGL and is a great scenery.

    Hi Carl,


    Sorry to hear you are having problems and I am no expert but mine is in the C:\Documents\Aerofly FS2\addons\scenery\boston_ma and it works fine. Just check yours and make sure there are two sub folders under boston_ma called images and places. Sometimes you can find that under the main boston_ma directory there is another boston_ma directory with those images and places in there. You can also download and install a couple more airports like KGHG and KOWD from FSCloudPort to C:\Documents\Aerofly FS2\scenery\places as well.

    For those of you with the same problem this is how I fixed mine. First find a plane with the option.tmc file in it. I used the c172 blue_wave found in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Simulator\aircraft\c172\blue_wave folder and highlighted the file name then went control C to copy it.


    Next I went to my Documents\Aerofly FS2\aircraft\c172\oofce (or whatever plane you want to fix) and hit control V to paste the option.tmc file into the target folder. I did that for each plane that I was having difficulties with including those justflight ones.


    Then go through and delete all the repaint.tmr files that are in those airplane folders. Do not empty the trash yet just in case of difficulties. (If you have problems you can always restore those files from the trash).


    That should fix the problems. You can if you want change the option.tmc file if you open it with notepad and take out blue-wave and substitute the name of the aircraft folder eg. SP-OLD, but it should not be necessary. You will then find that anything you select in preview will be the plane that you end up flying.

    Well we made a change to the option.tmc and left legacy support in for quite a while. I'm not sure we intended to remove this legacy repaint.tmr support this soon, so this is on us. Fact is that the Steam versions of the Just Flight aircraft have been update but the ones from their website apparently have not. I'll get in touch with Just Flight so that they can update their versions as well.

    Thank you. I know I can be a grumpy old sod but your help is appreciated.

    This is affecting user made repaints and third party aircraft bought outside steam like JustFlight. I bought the C152, Duchess 76, and the Turbo Arrow from the JustFlight site in late 2019.


    I just re-downloaded the C152 and it does not feature the option.tmc and only the default C152 is flyable although all skins appear in preview. The same applies to my user third party skins for the b747 and c172 although I copied the option.tmc out of the steam aircraft folder into those folders and got them working. I cannot do this for the JustFlight planes.

    I have discovered that you need an option.tmc file in your particular aircraft skin folder as it replaces the repaint.tmr file. I discovered by looking in the Developers: General and Aircraft forum.

    Hi all, I have noticed that when I select a different paint job on a plane such as the C172 it ignores my selection and stays with the N51911 model. This is happening with most of my planes. The
    Justflight C152 for another example is stuck on the G-BGAE skin even though I can clearly see I have selected something else in my aircraft hangar. Anyone else having these problems please :?:

    Yes they do work with the steam version. The only one I have not been able to get running is Lubbock but I am sure I should be able to figure that one out. If anyone has that up and running in the new AFS2 version I would appreciate them letting me know the installation paths.


    I downloaded Lubbock again and installed it just as per instructions and then realised that I did not have an airport in there. A quick trip to FSCloudPort.com and I downloaded Lubbock airport. And .... there it is as good as gold.

    I bought Gibraltar and Boston through them well before the sale. I believe an update to Boston is being worked on at the moment. A very good Paris is available as freeware through sim-flight.org, and Gibraltar is nice and works very well.

    Today in warm Adelaide it is overcast and as I sit here at my laptop I hear thunder rumbling. That sort of prompted the question .... has any sim ever modeled thunder storms? Flying through extreme weather would certainly encourage edge of the seat immersion I am thinking. =O

    I offloaded my entire Aerofly install deleting everything from my hard disk and now I am re-installing to check the load times and scenery locations. The first non steam package I tried was Lukla that I bought directly from Aerosoft. It installs itself in C:\Program files (x86)\steam\steam apps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator Add Ons\scenery\aerosoft_lukla. Directories created in there are the usual elevation, images and places. Under places we have the airports eg. vnbj_bhopur. When I try to fly from there I get a crash back to steam if I am using vulkan. In Open GL my frame rates are around 2-3 fps. Other scenery that I bought from steam as DLC works just fine.


    I thought I would try putting the Lukla scenery through your converter program but when I try to download that program I get this message.

    I remember that if you installed the Life Project for South Florida, one of the Miami folders was a test folder that caused the car pileup.


    Found the link to hopefully solve the problem:

    Thank you Strykai. Mu cubes have now gone. Dr Hotwing obviously did not update the software. Not complaining but do with there was a sticky or something where the ignorant herd of us could go to get these fix it tips.

    Anyone else getting a high cube of automobiles at both ends of a KMIA runway? I am seeing this in both open GL and Vulkan. I uninstalled and reinstalled South Florida but it is not going away.:/

    Hi Jan


    I disabled all external DLL's and user scenery and the program loads almost instantly thank you. But I really do not want to do that all the time because so much scenery is now missing not to mention any airports I might have added to make Chicago usable etc. So is there must be something somewhere that tells me how to rename airports and where to put them so that they are okay with the new version please?
