Howto Use Flight Gear TerraSync

TerraSync is a Python script for FlightGear to download terrain, objects, airports, … and to have it offline. It runs pretty slow, occasionally stops prematurely, have no parallelization, but well, it works.

Get the source and run the script. The script continues after failure.

$ git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/flightgear/flightgear
$ flightgear-flightgear/scripts/python/TerraSync/terrasync.py --target=/home/fgterrasync/ --url=https://flightgear.sourceforge.net/scenery/ --remove-orphan
