I need help with Livery

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I cannot weem to get the livery show up when I launch xplane10. This is how I do it, I extract file to STEAMLIBRARY/STEAMAPPS/COMMON/XPLANE10/AIRCRAFT/PMDG/DC-6/DC-6B/OBJECT

 

I am relatively new with xplane10, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Wrong folder.

You put liveries into:

 

Steam\steamapps\common\X-Plane 10\Aircraft\PMDG\DC-6\DC-6A\liveries (not the Object folder, but for livery folder, for example KLM).

 

Also, make sure you put -6A liveries to the -6A folder and -6B liveries to -6B folder.

Hi Katrin

 

I did this as well, I must be doing something wrong. Once I unzipped the file I get "United Air Lines DC-6B" I place this folder without opening it into liveries folder. Still, I do not find it in xplane 10 aircraft main page. I am not sure if I need to click on in xpalne 10 where I can see other liveries as in FSX.

Okay, I think I know what is your problem.

You can't open the plane with the livery applied using quick start menu (Due to X-Plane UI being quite numpty), it will start with the default paint.

 

Once the plane loads choose "open aircraft" from the top bar menu, choose the livery from the list and then press "Change livery and keep flying" button.
