airlpanes.txt file differences


Recommended Posts

I was doing some file housekeeping and found that the ymml airplanes.txt file does not have the 74N in it. CX operates the 74N into YMML.  I found it in the LPFG airplanes.txt file and tranferred it over to the YMML airplanes.txt file.  I have LPFG RC for that reason. Also changed the ymml schedule to reflect the 74N. All worked good. A nice CX Livery 747 instead of a whte one.

Looking at the other airplanes.txt file I found several differences from A/P to A/P.  I would have thought a common airplanes.txt file would have been the go.

Ques, can someone confirm that all the aircraft types are in the airplanes_pack1& the airplanes_pack1.manifest file.  What I want to do is bring my airplanes.txt file up to date and include every aircraft type. I know that if the airplanes.txt files and the Pack files dont correspond, the program doesn't load. 

I realise this is a Gabor area but any infromation will help.

Only the airplane types in the airplane pack manifest are actually modelled.

All other planes in the airplanes text, that are not in the pack manifest, will appear as a random default plane.

Common files are hopefully a thing for the next version

At least I know what to look for in the future if I add an airplane to my list and it shows up as a default, I should be able to track it down and by inference I will assume all airplanes in any of the airplanes.txt file are in the pack & manifect files.
