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. The end-user must obtain this package from an official download source (Here at flightsim.to, https://emeraldscenerydesign.com/products/eolib-msfs/, or on Marketplace. Please refrain from packaging it with your add-on or de-compiling it to include partial files for any reason, as it can result in outdated, broken, or conflicting add-ons.
2. Please credit Emerald Scenery Design in your description/documentation and provide a URL to our website (https://emeraldscenerydesign.com/). Alternatively, you may post a direct link to the libraries on our site.
Please understand that the Emerald Object Library is primarily built for and intended to be used with Emerald Scenery Design products. I will add models as I create or acquire them for my projects.
Additionally, please be aware that objects may be updated or, in the worst-case scenario, removed altogether. I try to make these changes as seamless as possible by usually replacing objects rather than removing them. However, no notification of these changes will be published, except in the release change log. 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/support/. 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, Buy me a Coffee (Pizza), or by purchasing one of my payware products.
