Yes! Today I injected the first new animation using modeldef_edit. I found Robert Bruce’s 3D compass XML code on the FreeFlight design forums, cut the XML code, clicked about 5 settings, saved the XML file, and compiled a 3D compass with FSDS – easy as that (and yes, if you are using FSDS, it does automatically update the partdefsdata.txt file).

This should make it easy for those new to the XML part dictionaries to add new custom parts to their models. Still a lot of testing to come and the manual to write, but the release date approaches! Hoping no more than two/three weeks to go.
