XPlane specific information

CSL vs. .acf aircraft

  • Like XSquawkBox, we render CSL models to represent the remote aircraft (other pilots).
  • There is a distinction between CSL and the aircraft that the local user flies (the .acf aircraft).
  • One cannot fly a CSL, and we cannot render a .acf.
  • We need both in the database, but we can not use .acf to render remote aircraft.
  • So .acf aircraft are excluded, which prevents them being used for rendering.
  • ACF aircraft with X normally do not belong in the model set (do not confuse model set and own models, we talk about the model set here)
  • But we use the .acf in the database so we know which plane the local user is flying, so we can pass that info to the other clients on the network.
  • See also Excluded models in mapping tool
  • Do we need mappings for ACF models? Yes, see Excluded models in mapping tool

Model directories

  • One can install CSL models wherever you want.
  • In the mapping tool, simulator settings panel, you direct swift where to search for them, by adding to the list of model directories.
  • All subdirectories of your X-Plane directory are already selected.
  • For your own (non-CSL) models, [ACF] and excluded should be automatically added by default when the mapping tool discovers the models.
