Aerofly FS Paths
The installation path (or installation folder) of the Aerofly FS 4 is usually defined in the Steam settings.
- Open the Steam software.
- Click on the “Library” tap at the top.
- Select the Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator from the list in the left column
- Right click on it and select “Properties”
- Switch to the tap “Local files” in the window that opens
- Click on the button “Browse local files…”
This will open the installation folder of the Aerofly FS 4 in a separate Windows Explorer window.
Contents of the Installation Folder
The installation folder contains all libraries, executables, game-content like textures or models and shaders. The folder contains sub-folders like the aircraft and scenery folder for the default aircraft and sceneries. Custom made aircraft, scenery or liveries should not be installed to these folders, use the user-folder instead (see below).
The user folder of the Aerofly FS 4 is a location on the hard drive that is not touched by any Aerofly FS 4 updates. Here all contents either created by the user or installed as add-ons are located. Per default this folder is created in the user-documents.
A short-cut for this directory is:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Aerofly FS 4. Simply paste this path into the path text-box of the Windows Explorer, it should automatically replace
%USERNAME% with the Windows user currently logged in and open the user folder.
On Mac OS you can find the user folder in your library containers.:
Macintosh HD/Users/…/Library/Containers/com.aerofly.aerofly-fs-2-mac/Data/Library/Application Support/Aerofly FS 4
Contents of the User-Folder
Aerofly FS 4 user folder contains sub-folder for the installation of custom made aircraft (also used for repaint) and scenery, a folder for saved screenshots as well as the personal settings for the simulator (see config-files) as well as the mission progress and the tm.log.
When inside the installation or user folder of the Aerofly FS 4 go one directory higher in the Windows Explorer, so that you can see the “Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator” or “Aerofly FS 4” folder in the Windows Explorer, then either drag it to the left column of the Windows Explorer to add it into your “Favorites”/“Quick access” or right-click on it and select “Send to” → “Desktop (create link)”.
