announcement TrueEarth GB South for Mac/Linux X-Plane Users

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

TrueEarth GB South is now Mac ready! We have had a couple of technical hiccups resulting in delays, however we have a workaround that will get you all up in the air.

 

To get started, follow these steps:

 

  • Go into your OrbxDirect account and click on TE GB South
  • At the bottom of the screen click the manual download option for Mac/Linux users
  • Extract the 3 TE GB folders to the /Custom Scenery/ folder

 

Now it's time to convert textures which may take awhile. To do this:

 

  • Open Terminal
  • Also open the X-Plane 11/Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_TrueEarth_Orthos folder
  • Type chmod +x followed by a space. Then drag and drop the _mac_1_conversion file onto Terminal. You should then see the full path to the file.
  • Press enter
  • Type chmod +x followed by a space. Then drag and drop the nvcompress-osx file onto Terminal. You should then see the full path to the file.
  • Press enter
  • Add scenery entries as per this walkthrough.

 

And you're done! 

 

If you're still stuck, Ben made a video of the texture conversion process that you can find here:
