Scenery & Cockpit import & export scripts for Blender

These Blender scripts export models created in Blender to X-Plane v7, v8, v9 or CSL .obj format.

The scripts also import existing X-Plane v6, v7, v8, v9 and CSL .obj files and X-Plane v7, v8 and v9 .acf airplanes into Blender.

Runs on Windows 98 or later, Mac OS 10.3.9 or later, and Linux.

Requires Blender 2.4x:

  • Windows: Download the "Installer" build of Blender.
  • MacOS 10.5: Download the "Python 2.5" build of Blender for Intel or PPC.
  • MacOS 10.3 & 10.4: Download the default "Python 2.3" build of Blender unless you have installed Python 2.5.
  • Linux: Download the build that corresponds to the Python version that is installed on your system.

See here for a version for use with Blender 2.5 & 2.6.

FS2004/FSX Add-on Scenery converter

This application converts MS Flight Simulator 2004 and FSX add-on scenery packages to X-Plane DSF overlay scenery packages.

This is the last version that runs on MacOS 10.3 and 10.4. Users of MacOS 10.3 must install wxPython 2.5.3.

X-Plane plugin for SketchUp

This SketchUp plugin imports and exports models in X-Plane v7/v8/v9 .obj format.

Runs on Windows XP or later and Mac OS 10.4 or later. Requires SketchUp 6, 7 or 8.

This is the last version that works with SketchUp 6, and the last version that exports X-Plane v7 .obj files.

   
Windows version 1.00

apt.dat to FS2004 "AFCAD" converter

This tool converts X-Plane 8.10 and earlier format apt.dat files to FS2004 facility data files. The resulting facility data files can be edited by MSFS scenery tools, eg "AFCAD", and then converted back to X-Plane 8.50 apt.dat files using "FS2XPlane".

Runs on Windows only.

   
Windows version 1.30

Mac & Linux version 1.30

v7 ENV to v8 DSF Overlay batch converter

This tool converts a v7 X-Plane scenery package to a v8 DSF overlay scenery package, and performs minimal sanity-checks on the v8 package in order to warn against crashes in X-Plane.

Only those objects that are actually used are copied into the v8 package. The tool checks whether every object referenced by the original v7 ENV files actually exists, and displays a warning or (optionally) removes references to those that are missing.

Runs on Windows NT or later, MacOS 10.2 or later, and Linux.
