Airplane Model Set Spec Updated
I am writing code for model set plugins right now. As such, I have made a few small modifications to the recent Airplane Model Sharing document. A summary of the changes:
- Some syntax changes to the model set configration file.
- Suggestion that non-real world airline codes and livery codes will be standardized by some entity prior to the release of SquawkBox 3. That entity may very well be a mechanism on this web site. The upshot of this is that different model sets will use the same speical livery names.
- Some changes to the options available to the SquawkBox client when choosing models to more accurately reflect to status of current development.
These changes will be of biggest interest to model set developers. As always, your comments on the forum are welcome.

Happy holidays to everyone! Best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous new year. Hopefully 2003 will bring many good things, not the least of which will be a new version of SquawkBox.

SquawkBox 3 now draws planes in the Flight Simulator window! This is just the initial implementation, and already the smoothness of the motion is improved over the current version of SquawkBox.
