Phriction Wiki Help system (user manual) swift installation and configuration guide XPlane aircraft too high or too low (wrong offset/CG)
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
