The text: the folder to be added is the folder congaing the 'vpb' folder is not clear ... congaing is containing" ?

Hi, I work in Linux Ubuntu, I have a folder to contain the additional scenarios that I link to the program through the application ./run_fgfs.sh --launcher It works normally fine, but when to try 2020.4 with OSG 3.6.5 the WS 3.0 I tried to download the compressed file: WS30_UK.tgz (size 428 MB) I expanded the file, as described by the procedure, and tried to select it with the launcher, as I normally do for additional scenarios, but the program cannot see the scenario. I think the problem is the version of the launcher that does not have the correct filter, I would like to know how I can fix the problem and report it to the great wiki article you wrote. Thanks for your help

Hey:) When you add a custom scenery folder, FlightGear looks for folders like Terrain, Buildings, Objects etc. inside the custom scenery folder which can be named anything. A new folder type is vpb - this contains virtual planet builder terrain. So you want a custom scenery folder structure like WS30_UK/vpb. Then add "WS30_UK" as a custom scenery folder in the launcher or command-line. The terrain generation and landclasses are working well, the rendering of those landclasse is WiP and very basic at the moment. I updated the newsletter to make it clearer, feel free to fix typos etc. :)

Thank, I inserted this option : --fg-scenery=/home/abassign/fgfs-scenary/WS30_UK and finally I see the surface, it's still pretty rudimentary, but it sure will be a notable progress. I hope to see the evolution of the concept soon. --Abassign (talk) 19:44, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
