    Hi all,

    I would like to know if someone knows if it possible to create a FLT file ( Flight Simulator Saved file) outside the simulator??
    is there a tool inside the FS or SDK tool for this kind of method?? or something else?

    I know there must be a way because there is third party software that creates such a files.

    I will be more than glad if someone can give me some direction.

    Thanks

    Maybe it one the DLL's that come with the FS itself?

    in the FS2004 I found a DLL "FLIGHT.DLL" when I open it with VS I see the flight planner. it can be that?

    thanks

    The FLT file is a text file. You could use a pre-saved FLT as a template, and make your own with notepad, or create a program to generate the text.
