Anywhere you want it to be. It builds itself.

This program, though I try and make it as simple as possible, is still very complex in nature. You are probably best connecting to another server now and enjoying as a client. I may make it easier to set up in future, but it's not going to get too much easier to use.

I could not possibly make that read me any clearer without making it twenty pages long explaining how ysflight actually works in great detail.
Sorry gunny, but if you don't get it, you may not ever get it. (same to you drachen)

That's a bug, I've fixed it but it's not yet in the current release.

I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
