Hi Gents,

All my FSDG Sceneries are installed in a custom location (in my case a different SSD - Path is D:\FSDG) I copied them all from the default location and edited the XML files accordingly. Everything works perfectly.
As Bodrum allows a custom path to install, i did so and it installed flawlessly into D:\FSDG, except the main FSDG folder which remained in the default "Document" -folder and contains amongst others the "scenery\world\scenery"-folder with the corresponding
*alt.bgl . The add-on.xml that referes to the mentioned bgl-file was not modified to reflect the custom installation path either.
No big deal , i just wanted to let you know. May be a user-error or intentional ? :blush:

Regards, Lars

Thanks for the feedback.
Bodrum is the first installer to use/allow custom install locations. We will update our other installers with that option over the next 3 weeks. We will post further information as soon as other installers are updated, but you already found out how we are doing it: the ALT files stay in the user documents folder since their file sizes are minimal and we want to keep them together with their respective add-on.xml.
If you want to mix your current manual install locations with Bodrum I'd suggest to copy your ALT files back to the user documents folder (already containing the LTFE ALT file) and use the add-on.xml that was installed by Bodrum (it certainly replaced your version with the custom path to D: anyway).

Note that there will still be an FSDG folder in your individual location (in your case D:/FSDG) containing manuals and everything needed for the config tool.
