Hi folks,

I looked around and couldn't find a reference for the "model.cfg" file which goes in simobjects/aircraft/objectname/model.

I know that in most aircraft, model.cfg has two entries:

normal=exteriorMDLfileName
interior=interiorMDLfileName

Are there any other entries allowed? Is there any way to have, say, 3 MDL files within one model folder, and have the sim load all three of them together simultaneously, when the simobject which invokes this model folder is loaded?

Thanks,
Farley

No, only the two entries and one target .mdl for the exterior and interior are allowed. If using a FS9 model, the "interior=" line will not work.

The only thing that'll work is a path to an external folder, e.g.
Code:
normal=..\..\My_folder\model\exteriorMDLfileName
Leave the current folder, leave the parent folder, enter "My_folder", enter "model", look for exteriorMDLfileName.mdl.

A great way to cut down on duplication.
