"Doesn't work"

February 05, 2012  |  By aapl_fan22

 |  Version: FlightGear 2.6.0-RC1


It's free. that's all I can say


I was able to get the window asking what kind of plane and airport. but when pressing "Start Flight", nothing happened. I tried a few different things, but nothing happened and it simply quit by itself

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.6.0

FlightGear 2.6.0 has so many new features, enhancements, and improvements since 2.4.0. Some major changes include:

  • Aircraft Operations
    • At selected airports, FlightGear can automatically start at an appropriate parking spot based on the size and type of your aircraft.
    • At airports which support this feature, a visual display of the taxi route on the ground guides you to the active runway, while following the correct taxiways.
  • AI system / AI Traffic
    • Less stutter in Multi-Player mode.
    • Less model-loading time by loading only the parts of the aircraft currently visible.
    • AI and multiplayer aircraft can produce sounds just like the main aircraft.
  • Flight Dynamics
    • The JSBSim flight dynamics model received a major overhaul.
  • Environment
    • The Local Weather package is integrated with the FlightGear core as "Advanced Weather". New rendering techniques allow more detailed clouds with no performance impact. High altitude clouds are rendered more realistically, and clouds move with the wind without impacting performance.
  • Interface
    • New replay mode
    • In-sim Multi-player configuration - You can change your call sign and MP server on-the-fly!
    • Much easier auto scenery downloader - just select a folder and turn it on.
    • More fps, less stutter
