Aircraft in Community - Don't show in game

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Title says it all, I have re-installed FS2020-Steam version after chasing this problem, with no fix.

I had an empty Community folder after re-install, then added several aircraft, but they don't

show up in the game.

Maybe there is a fix? I am out of ideas - Thanks for your input!

When you open the aircraft folder, is there another folder inside? If so, move that folder into Community.

Make sure you close MSFS completely then add your aircraft to the Community folder before starting the sim again. Sometimes you can add an aircraft while the sims running and they show up but most times they don't unless you install them when the sim is not running.

When I moved MSFS into another location I found I had a second Community Folder in a different location. If you have the same, and you'll have to check/search your files system, test which one the sim is using and make sure all your addons go there. I believe you can only change the location in the sim on a re-install but I may be wrong of course.

I use an add-on manager which can be set up to use the correct C/F although that's not necessary - but I've got around 800GB of addons............................!
