Question: How does ground objects work?

Post by DatBoSchitt16 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 2:47 pm

Warning! If you wanna read this post, this could be a question to answer..

I have the Snow leapord on my Macbook pro. The difficult part is where it goes as an addon. I put the ground LST in the YSFLIGHT ground folder, then i copy and paste the user pack in the YSFLIGHT user folder. I open the main program, then it still reads the files as errors. Does anyone know any way how to install the ground objects? I appreciate it.

What does the error say? And on which .lst?

Does anyone familiar with Macs know if they have the Linux / slash \ slash issue?

It says something like" Load Error :user/ground/obj.dat". It's the first thing it says when i open YS. Idk if there's something wrong where i put it or the srf or dat files. Most users use windows.

A few pics of the error and the ground object pack right after unzipping it would go a long way. A direct copy of the .lst would help to.

Like Waspe said, if the .lst is written like this

Code: Select all

user/major/ground/obj
you are fine.

If it written like this:

Code: Select all

user\major\ground\obj
you got problems and need to switch all the " \ " to " / "

I find that that solves 50% of all issues with addons on my mac. Go back and make sure that the files are where they are written to be in the .lst file. If that fails, re-download the pack and try again.

Probley the CVW-141 ground pack. It depends on the example. If you download a pack that has a user, scenery and ground folder, then it's one of those packs.Edited:

Then it should be straight forward. Just copy the files in the pack's ground file into your YSF ground folder. Do the same with the other marked folders.

I copied and pasted the dat, srf, and the ground lst files into the YSF ground folder, also where it says "show package contents" i did the same that ground folder. Those errors never know when to go..

You don't copy the dat and other stuff. Those stay in the user folder.

Example:
Ground.lst= user/major/vietnam/carrier.dat
That means that the ground.lst file goes into the YSF ground folder ALL OTHER FILES STAY IN THE VIETNAM FOLDER INSIDE THE MAJOR FOLDER INSIDE THE YSF USER FOLDER... Important stuff

If the lst file looks like this: GROUND.lst= ground/carrier.dat YOU COPY THE DAT AND SIMILAR FILES TO THE YSF GROUND FOLDER.

Apply the same thing to scenery and aircraft folders for other mods.

OMG!!!! These files actualy work!!! It took me a while to figure it out! Nothing was wrong with the srf & dat files. WHat I did was to make a new user folder in "show package contant"(SPC). Copy & Paste the user pack in the user folder. Then Copy & paste the srf & dat and ground.lst file in the ground folder. Copy & paste the scenery in case. Do the exact thing to both "YSFLIGHT" and the (SPC). Edited:

Thank YOU for your help forum!

I thought you already had done the "show package contents" ...
Glad we could help.
