The Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator Software Development Kit (SDK) consists of several different programs and libraries that are required by external developers to create additional content for Aerofly FS 2. This SDK includes:
The SDK provides export plugins for 3D Studio Max, Maxon Cinema 4D and AC3D Version 8. Those plugins export the 3D objects from the modeling software into the intermediate .tgi file format. The structure of the intermediate .tgi files generated by the export plugins is independent of the chosen modeling software and specific export plugin. This ensures that there is only one input file format for the final converter to the Aerofly runtime-engine. This converter can be subject to change for future Aerofly versions and can optimize the already exported 3D models without the need to reopen the modeling software.
Installing the export plugins should simply be a case of following the usual plugin-installation-procedures for your modeling software, copying the plugins into the respective plugin-folder of the target modeling software.
The Aerofly FS 2 Content Converter can do several operations to generate files compatible with the Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator:
For the installation of the Aerofly FS 2 Content Converter simply start the setup program 'aerofly_fs_2_content_converter_x64_installer.exe'. Follow the steps of the installation dialog.
