  2. I downloaded various types of planes to install, but after I put their folders in the Aircraft folder and launch the game, they don’t show up. Anyone encountering the same issue?

    1. Yes same here. It seems like there is a form of aircraft center in the game but I have problems using that as well. The wiki page is unfortunately out of date too. Could someone please update it? Thanks
