.DATtack -- .DAT File Editor

Introducing YSUpload's new .DATtack software, a free downloadable .DAT file editor for YSFlight!
Image

Features:
- Syntax highlighting
- Auto-complete (still a work in progress, type out the full name of the variable then hit tab and it will show what parameters are required, in most cases...)
- List of available variables (HUGE HUGE HUGE thanks to MR and everyone who contributed to the list of .DAT variables here on HQ). Double-click a variable to add to your file.
- Brief description of each variable.
- Extensibility and ability to add more variables as new YSFlight versions are created, without updating the entire application.

Coming soon:
- Better and more complete syntax highlighting and auto-complete
- On-the-fly syntax checking, as well as full-file validation
- Check for duplicate entries of variables that can only be entered once.

IMPORTANT: In the .zip you download, there is an included file called VARDEF.vdf. This is a text file that defines all of the variables. You will be asked for the location of this file when you start the program for the first time, but not again after that. You can update the file in the future (like, if more variables are added to the game) by going to the Help > Update VARDEF file feature.

One of the greatest tools for YS ever created. Way up there with the blender scripts.

Awesome stuff. :)
