Catalogue of FSX Library objects.

An area to discuss scenery addons for virtual NZ

Postby Timmo » Fri Nov 09, 2007 11:07 am

FSX comes with many 3D models that are used to make the default scenery- These models are available to be placed in other locations around the world by using the 'Object Placer Tool' avaliable with the SDK (Youll need to have the Deluxe version of FSX)

Using default library objects is a great way of updating the default scenery to something more realistic: It doesnt require too much work and the resultant files are very small which makes sharing them easy.

A catalog of all the FSX library objects can be found here http://lc0277.nerim.net/sceneobjects/

Once you install the sdk packets and updates right through to acceration sdk you will have a SDK manual to checkout and if that doesnt make much sence we can go through it with you on TS sometime ...

One of the best references for OPT, as far as actually navigating around it and adding objects, is here, the second link in particular. Although these tutorials are designed for mission building, there is a lot of useful stuff to place scenery.

Can some one help me? I have tried many times to activate the SDK Objects Placement tool but have thus far failed.

I have checked the dll.xml file and it seems correct however in saying that I have found 2 different versions of the launch add on. Tried them both still nothing, I have discounted one version because I lost the add on part of the menu bar when I tried it

I am running Vista if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the link to the objects directory, hope I can soon use it

There's a tutorial on how to install the SDK here:
http://www.simpilotnet.com/index.php?optio...3&Itemid=32

The most common problem is either a wrong path or the wrong version. If you install the Connect SDK (as shown in the video) you get a debug window which helps you track down what's wrong.

I do this nearly every time i set it up,, make sure in your ddl the path is set to the sdk or it will never show or work"<Path>C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\object_placement.dll</Path>"...

So since my last post ive fully install FSX and sdks plus sp1 sp2 and accelerationX plus sdk etc

so the tools didnt work three times for me and it was due to ddl file and what i wrote each time so here is the ddl file that works for me with all installs of X and sdk found in the C:/drive though ive done this in other drives before and it works sweet ..


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
<Descr>Launch</Descr>
<Filename>dll.xml</Filename>

I have checked the dll line by line and can find no difference between yours and mine although I have an additional addon for some aircraft downloads however even by taking this additional addon out I still cannot find the tools. Am I looking in the right place? The tutorial I have read indicates it shuld be on the Menu Bar. Could it be anywhere else bearing in mind my computer litaracy is quite low.

Huge thanks to you for taking the time to help, I really appreciate it

Ah ok yeah it should come up on the menu above the in game screen like this


the only time ive had problems with activating the sdk tools is when ive put the wrong text inthe ddl or another things on that ddl like fsrecorder is pointing to the wrong ddl file ..
could be you where looking for the tools in the wrong menu ? or the sdk object ddl path is wrong it could be in a different drive ?
though im sure you know what your doing so ill stop guessing
im stumped at the moment to why this is not working for you ,me i just reinstall it all over and over till ive got it ,but yours still to me is a path or text entry problem and not fsx itself ..

just to go right back to the beginning a little, you have deluxe version ? and have install the sdk pack from DVD disc 1 / do you have accelerationX addon pack ? and did you update the sdk with SDK sp1 and then the acceleration SDK update ?if not did you update it to SDKsp2 ?

Got it!, I was using the wrong version (I didn't know there was more than one)

Thank you very much for all your help.

A friend is building a scenery package for NZTE (Te Kowhai), the home of the Bantam microlight. Photos
Does anyone know of a scenery object that looks something like the Bantam?
