POD FILES

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to edit the default aircraft pod files so I don't have to look at names like Flyhawk and Sahara, Peregrine, etc?Matt

Hi Matt,That's possable just do these things!- unpod the POD of the aircraft- go to world directory- look for the file .nfo- change the name that's under the line of " -- Make and Model --"- Pod the file back and your done!Take care :-wave

Matt,There is a TRI supplied utility called podview.exe in the ..Fly!2tools directory.Colin

A simpler method is to load the POD using PODVIEW and find the "NFO" file in the POD. Then, just extract that one file to the Fly!2WORLD directory. Having done that, edit the NFO file that is in the WORLD directory, changing the name as noted above.If you have "SearchPodFilesFirst=0" in your Fly.ini, it will first find the NFO file in the WORLD directory and will ignore the NFO file inside the POD. Name will appear changed in Fly.To revert, delete the NFO file in your WORLD directory.-DK----David KohlFly!

G'day Matt,If you want to repod the aircraft then don't use povidview. This only allows you to extract a file and make changes ( can't repod ). For this to work you must then keep the new *.nfo file in the world folder and ensure that you have searchpodfilesfirst=0 set in the fly.ini.IF to want to re-pod the changes to *.nfo ;edit: This is a permanent change to the pod so make sure that you back-up the original skyhawk pod to a safe place before trying the steps below. ( just in case you completely stuff up ) :-) If you don't feel too confident then it may be adviseable to just do the first paragraph of this post. Start Fly!II whilst holding the ctrl key. This gets you into the fly! editor.a. catalogue the aircraft pod to a response file.b. extract all files from the aircraft pod.c. make the change to the *.nfo file (use notepad- the nfo file will be in the world direcetory. )d. build a pod from a response file.Hope this helpsCheers,Roger @YSSY
