Downloading right now.

Found a \Official\OneStore\fs-base-aircraft-icao\AirTraffic folder containing 2 files:
- AirlineICAOCodes.spb
- PlaneTypeICAO.spb

These files contain the airline ICAO and correct callsign (i.e. EJU - ALPINE, TFL - ORANGE) and the other one plane type and ICAO (i.e. 737 MAX 8 - 738M, Airbus Super Transporter - A3ST)

Found a \Official\OneStore\fs-base-ai-traffic\scenery\world\traffic folder containing:
- Excel sheet with different airliners and specs (altitudes, runway length etc.) A line says: A20N-0,Airbus A320 Neo Asobo,455,250,350,200,3300,5600,HARD,18,GATE | RAMP,100,yes,no
- Two BGL files containing air and boat traffic (for off-line AI).. Can be decompiled.

It seems that it's only mdl files made with the FSX SDK that will work, but not those that were amde with P3D, because that's a program that has nothing to do with FSX anymore, and therefore is completely different. But they also state that it's not recommended at all, to use the FSX mdl's because of the large difference in rendering techniques, between FSX and MSFS.

So although it seems like there could be potential for MDL-files it won't be the P3D made ones (like the PBR models made). That's for sure!

But one thing is for sure. The SDK will be trawled by a lot of developers and users tomorrow!

Yeah, it can use MDLs,it also supports a new model format 'glTF'. The SDK comes with 3D Studio Max plugins for it

Kai,

I'd rather close this topic for good. Too many others threads to follow at these crazy days  ;D
