Emerald Object Library (EOL, for short) is a collection of models produced by Emerald Scenery Design. This library is designed for and primarily intended to be used with Emerald Scenery Design addons!
However, as of June 10, 2021, these libraries may now be used by other developers in their freeware addons!
Now Available on Marketplace!
Emerald Object Library is now available on Marketplace for PC and Xbox! For more info and to figure out what version is best for you, please check out "Should I use the version available on Marketplace?" in the FAQ section below!
1. This package must be obtained from an official download source by the end-user (Here at flightsim.to, at https://emeraldscenerydesign.com/freeware/#EOL-MSFS, or on Marketplace. Please do not package it with your addon or decompile it and include partial files for any reason. This can lead to outdated, broken, and/or conflicting addons.
2. Please credit Emerald Scenery Design in your documentation and include a url to our website (https://emeraldscenerydesign.com/).
Understand that Emerald Object Library is built for and intended to be used with Emerald Scenery Design sceneries, first and foremost. With that said, I'm currently not taking requests to add objects to this library (Too many irons in the fire right now). Objects will be added as I create, convert or purchase them for my projects.
Also, be aware that objects may be updated or (in worse case scenario) removed altogether. Usually I try to do this as seamless as possible, often replacing objects instead of removing them. No such notification of these changes will be published other than in the release changelog, so please give it a quick read after each update!
Emerald Object Library is only available to download on Marketplace, at emeraldscenerydesign.com and flightsim.to. If you find this library uploaded anywhere else other than these three sources, please report it to me via PM or contact me through the following form: https://emeraldscenerydesign.com/contact/. Redistribution of Emerald Object Library is EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN.
The included "esd-modellib-eolib" folder should be placed into your MSFS "Packages\Community" folder. The libraries will load the next time you start Microsoft Flight Simulator. As of v22.3.16, the library folder has been renamed from "esd-eolib." Always do a clean install to ensure no old files are left behind after each update!
Support ESD's Freeware!
Emerald Object Library has been an ongoing project since 2014, starting with FSX. Thousands of hours have gone into creating, converting, improving, and maintaining these libraries over the years. I have also spent hundreds of dollars out of my own pocket on paid/licensed models. Some of which, are included in the package now. Many are still to come.
If you enjoy using these libraries and want to support their use in public freeware projects, or if you want to help me maintain and expand this library, consider supporting me via PayPal or Buy me a Coffee (Pizza). All donations go back into these libraries, as well as maintaining the website and software.
