Texture sets are a two stage process. The first stage in creating a new
texture folder for the set within the aircraft's folder. The second requires
adding details of the texture set to the aircraft.cfg file so FS will
recognise it..


The texture sets I created were for FS2004 so if you have FSX I don't know
if they work. Texture sets are tricky things as they have to be made for a
specific MDL file and this means they are only going to work for a specific
model. For example the default Boeing 737 will have textures that are quite
different to, say, the PMDG Boeing and so we have to create separate sets
for these aircraft.


The C172 textures should work with both the default FS2004 and the Real Air
C172 designs. The Fokker 100 texture set will only work with the Project
Fokker F100 model - specifically the 650-15 design. The Boeing 737-400
should have created an entirely new aircraft folder complete with textures
because the default Boeing has an absolutely rubbish performance and so the
package includes redesigned performance tables courtesy of Real Air.


I don't think I'll be able to link up with you tonight now - we've only just
got back and haven't eaten yet. Are you free any time tomorrow?

Thanks for your comments and offer.

Perhaps I should give you a little background as to why I want to download
and install the following items;

737-400 Full download

Cessna C172 Texture set

Fokker 100 Tay 650-15. Texture set

All of which are in JHB livery.

I am not happy flying in aircraft online which are not in the livery of the
airline of which I am flying.

Its fair to say that where the technical side of computors are concerned I
am a complete novice so I would be more than happy to join you on Skype at
whatever time is suitable to you. I am happy for you to use TeamViewer.

The best thing to do is open the zip file with Winzip and then look in the
list of files it shows for a readme or installation guide. Each designer
should recommend where you install their files - some are automatic and some
may require you place certain files in certain folders.


Some zipped files need extracting to an exact folder so that they create the
correct nesting of sub folders in the correct place.


If you really get stuck and you don't mind me fiddling with your PC we can
use Skype and TeamViewer to get the files into the right place.

I wonder if anyone can help me, I have recently installed WinZip and have
been able to download aircraft to a folder I have named " Unzipped
Aircraft". When I have tried to move any of the aircraft to FS9 aircraft
folder I have not been able to do so and in fact have crashed my computer

  I have also tried to download scenery with the same results.

  If anyone could give me some advise I would be most grateful.

  Regards  Thomas 211
