File/Folder Setup

SODE depends on two important file paths during execution:

  1. Location of XML/SDX definition files
  2. Location of the SimObjects

Moreover, FSX itself needs to know where the SODE module is located. This is done with an entry in the „exe.xml“ resp. “dll.xml” files provided by the flight simulator.

In addition, the scenery designer needs to manipulate another file, which is the „modeldef.xml“ provided by the simulator SDK.

For an overview of the structure of the file/folder setup, refer to the figure provided in this pdf-document:
