Settings - CSL
The "CSL" section of the Settings dialog: How to deal with which CSL models
Settings are available from X-Plane's menu:
Plugin > LiveTraffic > Settings.... In the "CSL" section you define how models are displayed and the paths, in which LiveTraffic looks for CSL packages on startup.
Settings > CSL > Modelling Options
Settings > CSL > CSL Package Paths
Each path is a starting position from which LiveTraffic searches up to 5 hierarchy levels deep for
xsb_aircraft.txtfiles, which start CSL package definitions.
By default, there are two enabled paths:
Resources/plugins/LiveTraffic/Resources/CSL. You can deactivate them if you only want to load models from elsewhere, but as long as these standard directories exist LiveTraffic will make sure they show up in the list.
With "Auto Load" enabled, models from this path are loaded on startup.
Configuring different paths comes in handy if you maintain multiple multiplayer clients. LiveTraffic can read their CSL packages and then does not require a separate installation. LiveTraffic is also very tolerant regarding non-existing directories: they will just be skipped with a warning in
Log.txt. So you can configure five paths to multiplayer clients in the
pluginsdirectory, and even if only one of those clients is actually really there (because the others are moved out to something like
plugins_disabled) then still LiveTraffic starts up successfully and reads from that one existing directory. Or you even refer to directories under
Paths are usually entered relative to X-Plane's main directory. But you can also enter full paths to anywhere outside X-Plane.
To add a new path start typing / pasting into the "Add new path" line. The check mark in front
indicates a valid path (directory exists), otherwise it turns into a warning
