=== 3D models import webform ===
The webform to import 3D models directly into the DB is in production. Now you can use this tool to send your models to the database used by Terrasync. If everything is fine and your model respects the specifications written in the foreword, then it will quickly be shipped to all FG users worldwide through [[Terrasync]]. Yet another unique feature amongst the flight simulation world held by FlightGear. Thanks to Clément, Julien, Martin, for their help & support, and all of FG users who showed interest and support in those tools.

Remember that this is the strength of FG compared to other sims: everything can be in Terrasync and no need to download patches or sceneries here and there.
