V4.1 and AI Models?

Recommended Posts


I am removing all AI aircraft with an "old" model , NOT FSX models.

I found that many of my AI Aircrafts have NO Model file in their Folder?


example :


model type=Unknown


Is this accepted by P3D V4.1 and are these aircraft used in Traffic?

Thanks in advance

if an aircraft.cfg has the entry

model =

without a specification, this means that the folder called "model" will be considered. Only if there are several models in the same folder, this need to be defined more precisely. Example: for the A330 plane by TFS, there is a RR, GE and a PW model. This is represented by three different model folders called "model.rr", "model.ge" and "model.pw". In the aircraft.cfg, it has then to be specified which model should be used, for example with:

model = rr

End of the story...

The "model=" part of the aircraft CFG just points to where the model file is actually located. Ie, if the .MDL file itself is in the "model.RR" folder then the aircraft CFG, under that aircrafts heading would read model=RR

It's the actual .MDL file that is either FS9 or FSX/P3D.
