What is the model set?

The model set is a subset of all aircraft models you have installed / stored. It represents the models you can use to display other users (i.e. other aircraft, the other pilots). The model set is needed for model matching.

::: {.important} ::: {.title} Important :::

No model set, no model matching, no working *swift* ! :::

See also `mm`{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}

Why is *swift* using a model set, why is it needed?

From user perspective:

- the model set allows to define any combination of models for

  matching as you like it

- you can mix models from various distributors - you can have multiple model sets suitable for special purposes

  (without installing/uninstalling models)

- easy testing: you can easily add or remove models to your set for

  testing purposes, without having to install/uninstall the physical

Technical reasons:

- *swift* is a multi simulator pilot client. By using a abstract model

  set (i.e. abstract from the physical models) we can use one matching
  concept for all simulators

- *swift* can be used in distributed mode,

  `distributedswift`{.interpreted-text role="ref"} . The model set can
  be use on a remote computer without direct access (shared drive
  etc.) to your models folder.
