One of the most common aircraft in the skies is the Boeing 737-800. IVAO X-CSL MTL however only appeared to have a single model, an Air Canada B738 with split-scimitar winglets. Snooping around the files, this appeared not to be the case. There are in fact over 800 in different variants and liveries, not including the -900 too! Models for the A330, A340, A380, 739, 77W, 748 and more were there but not even being used!

This model matching mod increases the number of IVAO AI planes from 1,230 (although only around 10% of these actually worked) to 2,248. This should give you a lot more to enjoy, rather than looking at the same few planes over again.

Installation:
- Head to your Microsoft Flight Simulator directory and go inside the IVAO PilotCore folder. You can find this folder in the same place as the Community/Official folders at 'Microsoft Flight Simulator\IVAO\PilotCore'.
- Drag and drop the 'mtl.dat' into the PilotCore folder. Replace the file that is already there.
- Load up Microsoft Flight Simulator, connect to IVAO and wait for your new and improved IVAO traffic to appear!

Potential Issues:
There may be a few issues with either models not working or co-ordinates being way off the mark. As people file bug reports or I spot these myself in-sim, I'll be sure to make adjustments and update this pack wherever possible.

Dislaimer:
This mod only contains the mtl.dat replacement file. X-CSL and the AI Models rights are respective of their creators and contributors.

    Wow! Hey drawyah! Whatsup? Good job on this. Is there one for vatsim?

    Unfortunately doesn't work for me. Replacing the mtl.dat file with this one caused me several CTD's in MSFS (up to date). Reinstalling the original stopped the CTD's.

    Hi..can this be used to update x-csl outside of IVAO? I just want to update the x-csl with the new models.

    In other words is there a way to update x-csl with additional models without connecting to network?

      Perhaps. X-CSL may have an updater on their website. The main way would be with an IVAO update.

    Can you Make this work for vatsim?... I dare ya ????

      I do not use VATSIM, nor know how VMR files work. X-CSL under their End User Agreement only officially works with the IVAO network.

    Got a question: I´m using a C172, my friends use the same plane, they can see me (with legs coming out of the plane) but I don´t see them untill they change to a BE58 or something else. Any idea how to resolve this?
    PS:Thank you for a great work

      It really comes down to which aircraft models are available I'm afraid. At some point I will go back and add a few common aircraft types to this for the sake of simplicity and matching.

      I don´t understand..... all the friends I have that are using FSMS and the same MTL list, some of us can see the C172 (or other Cessna) and some of us can´t.. how and why is that?

    I am on IVAO at EGLL but can't see any Virgin,BA or UAE liveries. Do you have a list of all available liveries?
    • Drawyah

      Check the IVAO Webeye for traffic at the airport. There is a chance nobody is at the airport at the time.

    Does this only work for multiplayer with atc and stuff or does it also work with signle player
    • Drawyah

      It doesn't work for default multiplayer or single player, only IVAO.

    Hello. Can someone tell me what it is and how I used it? I was looking for the 737 and that caught my eye immediately.
    • Drawyah

      IVAO is a realistic ATC network for MSFS, P3D, X-Plane, FSX and FS2004 that lets you fly on 'multiplayer' with realistic ATC comms and pilots, real people flying on simulators. This mod re-builds the model matching on this network so that traffic is realistic compared to current default - If someone flies the PMDG 737 in P3D/X-Plane for example, it will now appear as a traffic 737 in-game.

    Hey Drawyah! Really awsome to see you here! I actually have a question. After replacing the "mtl.dat" file should ve erase the "ivao_x-csl" file from our community folder or should it stay? I guess we don't need that anymore. Thanks a lot!!!
    • Drawyah

      Leave it! You need the csl file for the model matching itself! This just updates the database and adds the extra liveries and models.

      Nah I,m joking. I know that IVAO is working on improving MTL with beta testers. But for the moment yours work really good compared with default ones.
      Thanks!
