Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

This article is a stub. You can help the wiki by expanding it.

$FG_HOME is an environment variable representing the path to where user-specific data is stored (not application data). Basically, it is a name for a directory that varies with the operating system and stores information between sessions: configuration/preferences, properties marked with the "user-archive" attribute, and aircraft-specific settings (using the data helper class in aircraft.nas).

Common paths

  • Windows:
  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/FlightGear
