Hi Lester
No.

A groundnet would not work. At least it won't work for KEBD.
As KEBD does not exist in your FGDATA/Airports/apt.dat.gz database, FG will be unable to launch to KEBD on any parkpos.

A parkpos for KEBD exist (https://github.com/FGMEMBERS-SCENERY/KEBD.KLCK-fg-CustomScenery/tree/master/Airports/K/E/B), but for this reason it will have no use.

I am suggesting to use these values directly on the launcher instead. (the ones assigned to you), for either KCLT and KEBD.

Fifth option down the list, Initial Positions.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Scenery: https://github.com/FGMEMBERS-SCENERY/KEBD.KLCK-fg-CustomScenery
Optional. But without it you won't have KEBD airport in your scenery

Aircrafts: see
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=130&p=2642#p2642
Optional. but without them you may see yellow gliders instead of models

Starting positions for each confirmed participant:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=130&start=80#p2708
Optional, but taxiing an heli to an apron is big bussiness.

Found something about the AS350 from FGUK on this site :? : http://www.hovercontrol.com/cgi-bin/ifo ... ool=phrase
I was searching for information to make a Air Zermatt livery for the AS350, but it seems to be it is already existing but for FS2004 but fits perfect for the FGUK version. Conclusion, the AS350 from FGUK is converted from FS2004 :|. I hope StuartC has contacted the author's, otherwise it's not GPL.

BTW: Due that I searched the internet and discovered that it's the same issue with the Bell 407, Bell 430, Hughes MD500E and the currently build Westland Merlin.

All of those you listed I got them from FGUK under GPL license!

Curious stuff.

I see what you mean

1) it's hard to suggest that the matching maps are just identical by coincidence. But the contrary needs to be proven
2) Maybe they did ask and get permission

I hope .

On the other topic. If the livery exist for FS2004, and matches. I would still totally preffer redo it from scratch under GPL than upload non-GPL propietary material on the GPL aircraft.

Coincidence :?: , no way. Because it are 5 helicopters. Permission :?: , don't know. Nothing known about a author for the 3D models in the author list. I fear the worst :( .

That's not good, the 250 is listed on FGUK as GPL, at least last time i checked.

Should I delete my link?

Sorry my confusion, I thought there might be a groundnet available, I now understand what Israel is referring to.

The AS350 is listed as GPL in the FGUK hangar ... as we speak...

And this license was inherited over to FGMEMBERS
