Installation Issue for Reference Directory (~/Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT)?

Post by semigod » Sun Jun 19, 2022 1:52 am

Hi all,

I download **20150425Ysflight** to my Linux(Fedora). I unzip it into my home directory and start to learn playing YSF. I find that YSF will create a directory named "YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT" in "~/Documents".
My questions:
1. Can I change this directory to other directory?
2. I can put **Addons** in this directory, and YSF will read these **Addons** from this directory. Is it right?

YSF did have a lot of good time with me when I was studying. Recently, TopGun2 brought me back to YSF again! I'm really happy.

(Windows user here Idk if this'll help) that folder is where you can put the files for flight replays, for your second point that's a new one.

Thanks! @Mustang

Can I modify the configuration to change this directory?

I like this setting, and it is easy to organize.

It works this way in Linux same way it works on Windows and i think macOS as well, no, you can't change this setting unfortunately.

Just looked through the MacOS 2015 version. I couldn't find where to change it.

@decaff_42

Thanks for your Addons Works!! I recently restart to play YSF and still feel great.
I try to learn how to install these Addons by myself.
Take some notes [Here] but I write this in Chinese.
