[STICKY] Operator Flags and Model Silhouettes

Post by agw » Mon Dec 28, 2015 5:40 pm

The Virtual Radar Server installer does not install operator flags or model silhouette images. The first step in getting these working for your installation is to download a set of flags and silhouettes and unzip them onto your machine.

You can download silhouettes and operator flags from Kinetic's website here: http://www.kinetic.co.uk/resourcesdownloads.php

The Silhouettes Logos file contains the model silhouettes, there's only one of those. You have a choice of different operator flags, they're the files Operator Logos Version 1 through Version 4. To get things going just pick version 1, you can experiment with the others later and pick one you like.

Unzip the two files into separate folders. Remember where you unzipped them.

In Virtual Radar Server go to Tools | Options.

In the Data Sources section enter the full path to the folder where you unzipped Silhouettes Logos into Silhouettes folder, and the full path to the folder where you unzipped Operator Logos Version 1 into Flags folder.

If you do not have a BaseStation.sqb configured then ensure that you have Lookup aircraft details online ticked.

Click OK. If everything worked then you should start seeing silhouettes and operator flags on the web site.

There is an updated step by step instructions and valid links for zips with various flag and silhouette options in this post viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1237#p6362

Valid as of December 2016. Eventually link-rot and updates will make it wrong, but it's good for now.
