What manual?  Where?  I have heard many references to an 81-page manual and yet I can't find it anywhere.  Have looked high and low in the zip file and used search here on the boards.  .. where is it?

Fortunately it's only 21-pages and the download link is at the bottom of the first message in this thread.

Hello everyone!

I'm usig FSX steam edition. Apparently I've got some issue when installing the AI models.. Well, actually I didn't manage to install them at all. I've downloaded the files and copied them into the SimObject folder, however when clicking on "install" the drop-down window is empty.
Attached is a screenshot of what I mean, for easier understanding.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Did you specify the SimObjects folder in the Tool -> Settings -> Flight Simulator (tab) ? 

If not be sure to add the full path.  It should end with the folder where you are storing you AI aircraft.

Also make sure that the AI aircraft has a aircraft.cfg file in the folder.  Some of the models converted to FSX models don't and you need to add it from the original FS9 model.

Well, I've managed to install most of the models, just a few adjustments here and there. It took a while and now I'm eager to take it to the sky, so for now I've deactivated the aircraft's shadows as I think there's some compatibility issue. Too tired now to try to fix that as well, therefore I'll keep it as it is at least for now! Time to fly! thanks a lot for your help  :) :) :)
