Projects / ACFTools


ACFTools is a utility for manipulating X-Plane flight simulator aircraft and weapon models without using its Plane Maker. It can decode both Apple and Intel ACF/WPN formats into plain text files with a syntax similar to C, which can be edited and then re-converted into binary data. It is able to extract almost complete 3D models of aircraft (fuselage, floats, tanks, wings, stabs, propellers, engines) and write it in AC3D modeler format. Edited 3D parts can then be merged into plain text and consequently converted into binary ACF files.

      Release Notes: A major part of XPlane::Convert::AC3Dparse has been rewritten. This release uses the AC3D 'loc' attribute to get/set bodies arm. The Win32 binary is now made with PAR (Perl Archive Toolkit). Sample models have been recreated.

        Release Notes: The 7.40 "is_left" miscellaneous wing attribute was fixed (7.00 also had it, but it was undocumented until 7.40). A dumb and unnecessary Time::HiRes dependency was removed. Minor documentation and help fixes were made, and a models/ sample model was included.
