xOrganizer helps you manage your:

 

  • Scenery
  • Plugins/scripts
  • X-Plane preferences
  • Aircraft


xOrganizer does this by helping you with:

 

  • Maintaining the right scenery order (scenery_packs.ini)
  • Overview, especially if you have collected a lot of stuff
  • Preventing conflicts between scenery packages and between plugins/scripts
  • Setting up X-Plane for a specific type of flight: different scenery and plugins/scripts, but also different X-Plane preferences (for instance for VR)
  • Reducing X-Plane load times
  • Increase X-Plane performance by disabling content
  • Limit the number of loaded (groundtraffic) plugins: X-Plane can only handle a certain amount of plugins

 

xOrganizer offers treeviews, tables and maps for better overview.

 

Managing scenery


One of the more difficult tasks managing your X-Plane installation is keeping the right order for your scenery.

 
X-Plane is very flexible with its scenery. With regard to ordering there are no strict rules and authors can mix and name stuff as they like.

 

This offers a lot of possibilities, but the downside is that it also makes managing scenery complex.

 

xOrganizer uses several different methods to automatically determine the type of scenery and its place in the order, mainly reading the contents and pattern recognition. However, you should always check if the results comply with the instructions of the author.

 

Please note that xOrganizer is also made to make manual adjustment of the order very easy. You can simply drag and drop packages, but the context menu (right click on a package) also offers lots of options.
