    l get ..."mdl is not a valid MDL file".
    What could be the reason and is there a way to make the file valid and add it to create a object library .

    Thanks

    Hi George,

    Two things could be possible:

    1. You are trying to mix FSX and FS2004 MDL files in the same library, that is not allowed.

    2. You are trying to add an FS2002 or FS2004 aircraft MDL file. These are different from scenery MDL files and can not be put in a library.

    Hi,

    ModelConverterX should be able to convert most of them to FSX MDL files.

    The other way is to create two library BGL files, one for FSX objects and one for FS2004 objects. Almost all FS2004 scenery objects work fine in FSX, as long as there is no transparency.

    Hope this helps,
