IBX

The *.IBX filetype caches 3D model information. It is stored in the data/cache folder of the main game or the mod folder that you have selected (in SCP). It's recommended that you include the relevant *.IBX files with any campaign you release with modded ships, as this will save the user a bit time. IBX files are automatically created by your models by placing the POF into a mission and running FS2O.

POF

  • .POF files are used to hold model data.

The following properties are held in a POF file: (alphabetical order)

  • Central point of the model
  • Docking points
  • Heading
  • Paths
  • Squadron logo location
  • Subobject behaviour, radars, debris, LODs
  • Subsystem locations, their radii and naming
  • Thruster locations and radii
  • Turret fire points and normals

.POF files can be made using Truespace and the PCS kit. Truespace can be used to create a 3D .COB file; the dock point, turret fire point, etc. information listed above can be added using PCS, allowing you to export the model from COB to POF.
