I'm maintening for free three plane mods based on the c172. In order to have the mods compatible with the classic 172, I have to provide an xml for the panel. My current versions are out of sync which cause bad system behaviors.
I request access to the three flavors (wheel,ski,floats) panel.xml files from c172sp_classic.
Considering the 3D model and the cfg files stay encrypted, the plane is still protected from copy.
I hope you'll agree with this, it would help a lot (me and other modders)
