XPlane aircraft too high or too low (wrong offset/CG)
Updated 37 Days AgoPublic

IMPORTANT: Whenever you change your model's folder (means remove it, move it etc) you need to re-create your model set so the paths there reflect the real situation, see Model set - creating or recreate a model set.
  • Bluebell CSL models sunken in ground/too low (vertical offset fix) -> Solution: Install the BB_IVAO_vert_offsets fix (Download Bluebell CSL and vertical offset fix) (simply copy the files from the BB_IVAO_vert_offsets folder over the original ones) and restart X-Plane. Make sure you install it correctly! Do not end up in a cascaded structure, see next item.
  • If all offsets for the BB models are missing, check you haven't ended up if a cascaded directory structure and updated the offsets in the wrong place. This can easily happen if you click on the rar file and extract to a different place. Make sure you only have one xsb_aircraft.txt per folder.
    • Working folder example:
    • WRONG folder example, cascaded ("Airbus in Airbus")
    • WRONG folder example, offset file folder in BBfolder
  • If some individual aircraft seem to be too high or low, you can also check the vertical offset in the xsb_aircraft.txt
    • Normal Jets have values around 2-4 meters as value there, if you see values off the grid maybe this value is wrong
    • below you find some examples
