Model/Texture update without MSFS restart

It would be nice to be able to insert new models and textures to the model library without the need of restarting MSFS.

You can do this now in the virtual file system. No need to restart.

Really? Is there any documentation/tutorial how to do it? In the SDK I could not find anything about it.


Thanks!

All you need to do to facilitate this is have developer mode open (InSim) and (for example) drop the generated Blender files BGL,XML and GLTF straight into the ModelLib folder of the project you have loaded (copy any textures into the MoldelLib texture folder if you’ve added textures). The result should be instantaneous. As mentioned, if you added textures, click Build.
