-===== Installing the Aircraft-SDK ===== +
- +
-Download the SDK Tools from the [[https://www.aerofly.com/community/filebase/index.php?category-file-list/3-aerofly-fs-2-sdk/|Aerofly FS 2 SDK website]]. The download is free, all we require is an email for registration. After registration there may be a delay until we approved all new users. It usually takes less than a day or two before you see the download button. After the download has been completed, run the **aerofly_fs_2_sdk_setup.exe** installer and follow its steps. Please note the installation path chosen here because all the SDK content will be extracted to this SDK-folder. +
- +
-From that [[sdk:intro|SDK]] folder go into the ''aerofly_fs_2_content_converter'' folder and execute the **aerofly_fs_2_content_converter.exe**. This will install the Content Converter which we will need later. +
- +
-The SDK also provides a lot of plugins for the [[sdk:aircraft:modelling#supported_modelling_tools|supported modelling programs]]Those are included in the ''plugins'' folder in the SDK folder. Please pick the right one for your modeling program of your choice and install it in the usual way. +
