   </planes>
   <cities>
     <city name="Tours" lat="47.27" long="0.43" timezone="Europe/Paris"/>
   </cities>
 </config>

Planes:

  • name: name of the plane
  • horizontal: direction of the horizontal movement of the plane, gauche: towards the left, droite: towards the right
  • vertical: direction of the vertical movement of the plane, haut: towards the top, bas: towards the bottom
  • image: plane's image path relative to the configuration file

Cities:
