Inspect, edit and manage your FSX aircraft fleet.
FSX Aircraft ToolBox gives you easy access to your FSX Aircraft files:
The FSX Aircraft ToolBox is a utility that will appeal to developers, power-users and "aircraft aficionados" who often need (or just want!) to delve into their FSX aircraft files and apply their "virtual wrench". If you are anything like us you may feel tweaking FSX is almost as much fun as flying it!
As a good companion for our aircraft configuration editor - TweakAircraft for FSX - this FSX Aircraft ToolBox focuses on a different area by making it easy to navigate and edit most of the individual files that make up your FSX aircraft. It can also be used to manage the fleet by backing up entire aircraft folders, enabling and disabling aircraft groups as well as tweaking many items such as the aircraft thumbnails used in the FSX aircraft selection dialog. We are sure you will find it a valuable tool in your endeavors as a "virtual aircraft engineer".
Aircraft Viewer - Loads and Displays all Installed FSX Aircraft
The Aircraft Viewer will search your FSX folder and visually display all installed aircraft, both default and add-on, outside of the FSX aircraft dialog. It uses a "reference card" type display with some basic information on the aircraft and the aircraft thumbnail. Each one of these details can be edited directly on the card if desired.
Aircraft Explorer - Inspect and Manage your Fleet
The Aircraft Explorer is a tree display which allows you to navigate the aircraft files and perform many functions such as enabling/disabling entire groups of aircraft, determining if the aircraft is default or add-on, inspect many of the files that make up the model, backing up and restoring an entire aircraft group and more.
The FSX Folder page is a fully-integrated Windows file explorer with full OLE drag and drop capabilities. It is anchored at the root FSX folder which allows you to quickly inspect the FSX directory and all its files.
Integrated Code Editor
The Code Editor is where CFG and HTM files are loaded when you click on them in the Aircraft Explorer (or when double-clicking the aircraft caption in the Aircraft Viewer). It has full syntax hi-lighting to aid code readability and in the case of HTM (reference and checklist files) you can also preview the changes made in the integrated web browser.
Aircraft Thumbnail Creator
If an aircraft does not have a thumbnail, or if would you like to replace the current one quickly and easily, you can create your own with the Thumbnail Creator page. Let your creative juices flow as you create your own custom thumbnails.
Automatically Launches FSX so you can test your changes:
You can assign a specific test flight (FLT file) to boot up FSX with, perhaps a saved flight with the aircraft you are working on at the takeoff position. The FSX Aircraft ToolBox will launch FSX and load your flight so you can be up and running (or flying) in no time.
Make Changes with Complete Impunity:
One thing that puts many off from Tweaking is the fear they will "break" something. As with all TweakFS utilities we have added a Restore button to most features so if anything goes haywire reverting back the original file is a one-click operation. In fact FSX Aircraft ToolBox leaves the original files themselves intact and makes a duplicate to work with. We always take the cautious approach and give you the ability to easily bail out should FSX spit the dummy at any change you have made.
TweakFS News Reader
The News Reader hooks directly into the TweakFS website and loads the latest news and file downloads so grabbing updates and newly released freeware tools has never been easier or more convenient.
Attractive MS Office Style Interface:
Utilities by nature can be rather unattractive to look at. We hope you notice that as with all TweakFS products we have also put much thought and effort into making them pleasing to the eye.
