G'day!

G'day everyone.

I've been a YSFlight fan for years. Now I have finally figured out how to fly on servers! Today I downloaded the Guam_to_SoCal2015 map and tried the server at civav.ddns.net. It was pretty lonely out there...

Now I would like to try the server at 187server.xyz but I can't find any active site that has the right map, YORK_VALLEY.

Does anybody know where I can get a copy?

Please?

Go here and click "MAP"

Happy Flying :)

note: it is better to do a google search, for such maps....

Thanks AdityaB. I had just visited that site while you were replying but clicked List... I'm trying a new browser. Google and Microsoft think XP is old hat now. Hopefully I'll be seeing a few fellow YSFlighters in an hour or so!

Thanks again. :-)

Thanks decaff_42, and that's a great idea Lucas1997, 'cos I've run into a problem...

I've downloaded the scenery and put in the right folder (yay!) and then logged onto the server and I was told I had no suitable aircraft. I did a bit of Googling and found I needed some aircraft from 2Ch. I downloaded and extracted a file called 'backup of GAC' but they are still the wrong aircraft or maybe the wrong pack. There is a README text file that has the following -

This is a backup of 2ch General Air Combat. Sadly it is just the files for a basic installation of the original pack.

I tried http://ysflight.s31.xrea.com/beginner/?GAC but it is a dead link.

Anyone know where I can get the right aircraft for 187server.xyz?

How to install airplanes? viewtopic.php?t=6256
You can find GAC here: http://ysfinder.net/page.php?pack_id=49 and http://ysfinder.net/page.php?pack_id=75
YSFinder is the best way to find and discover Addons for YSFlight. http://ysfinder.net/
also official 187 server website: http://www41.atwiki.jp/ysflight/pages/36.html

Thanks again. I just downloaded two different GAC packs from http://www41.atwiki.jp/ysflight/pages/1.html but no luck. I'll give these a go.

Ya gotta laugh...

I tried getting on 187server.xyz again last night but it kept saying I don't have any suitable aircraft. I tried the aircraft I downloaded and they work fine offline. Now they've changed the map. The new map is British_Indian_Ocean_Territory. I've searched for it but all links are dead, including the one that leads from this tread -

viewtopic.php?t=6162

There was also another thread where a member was asking anyone who knew where to get the map to PM them but I've forgotten where it is.

I think I'll just hang out on civav.ddns.net. At least I won't have to worry about mid-air collisions! :-)

Thanks heaps for your help and patience AdityaB!

I downloaded the map and got on the server and was able to choose a starting place, so the map works!

Unfortunately I still have the no suitable planes error. I'm still working on it.

Thanks again.

Thanks again.
can you throw some light on what all packs/aircraft you have??

to my knowledge 187server does not have stock aircrafts at all....

i mean to say: do you have aircrafts as given in this list: Addon List for 187server

Good day and happy flying :)
