747 V3 old livery to new aircraft

Recommended Posts



I have a VA livery from the previous PMDG 747 version.

But I have tried to install the old livery with no success. Thanks for your help in advance...



1) Locate the PMDG747-400 folder located within your FS directory (/Simobjects/Airplanes/PMDG747-400).

2) Create a new sub-folder within PMDG747-400 and name it "texture.abc" (no quotes).

3) Copy all files from the original PMDG 'texture.RR' folder to the new folder named 'texture.abc'.

4) Extract the files from the attached 'pmdg_abc_tex.zip' file to the 'texture.abc' folder overwriting all files when prompted.

5) IMPORTANT! Backup the original Aircraft.cfg file located in the PMDG747-400 route folder.
          Add the following entry to your aircraft.cfg file changing the 'flightsim.x' entry to the next number in sequence for YOUR .cfg file.


title=ABCVA - 747-400 RB211 Engines
atc_airline=ABC-Aviation VA
ui_type=747-400 RR
ui_variation=ABC-Aviation VA

I don't know that you can do that, as I don't believe the textures from the old version are compatible with the V3. Your aircraft.cfg also won't work since your sim line is pointing to the .air file of the old version. Since the naming convention of the .air file is different in the V3, it can't find the .air file that you asked it to look for.
