The link is good.  It's on the first page that loads.

They all say they're for FSX...can I use those for P3D?

Yes you can.. for now there's little to no difference.  P3Dv4 opens the door to some stunning liveries that will not be backwards compatible.

Yes, the AVSIM library has a few.

I am Canadian and look for any flagship carriers like Sunwing, Air Canada, WestJet, Canjet, Air Transat and Travel Service; well anything with a registration starting with the C-****...

Try this site out:

http://www.fsxliveries.com/737-800.html

You will find many of these types of liveries from Canada and Sunwing Airlines. Check it out if you are interested!

Be careful with those liveries. Sometimes it adds an unbelievable amount of lines of text to your aircraft.cfg which makes it hard to edit manually if needed. Liveries do look fine though.

Yes, thank you.

I have seen this anomaly before in my PMDG 737-700WL Aircraft.cfg file. It takes up space with some "jibberish-description" lines.

 

I check out all my aircraft.cfg files when adding new liveries, especially .ptp files that perform the action of installing the texture folder along with the .cfg entry.

 

Thanks again!

Hi guys,

I'm the creator of the repaints with the word not allowed lines in aircraft.cfg and it happened with old NGX repaints only, mainly 800 and 900 versions  but I re-compiled those repaints to new .ptp files long time ago. 
As I found out, the problem was with description in config file and to be more accurate with "/n" parameter or whatever you call. Back then I did not know that it will cause the problems when I hit Enter and make thousands of separate lines, usually filled with empty space or website address. 
Not sure how it works and why this happen but since a day I found out, I re-wrote description and this problem doesn't occur in any of the files made later. 
Here is the original post (from 2015) on my www I addressed to this issue. Tho, the red marking wasn't updated on the list, .ptp were.
http://www.fsxliveries.com/home--blog/important-huge-size-of-aircraftcfg-issue-737-900wl
Second post (in 2016) with update:
http://www.fsxliveries.com/home--blog/update-huge-size-of-aircraftcfg-for-737-900

It was a quite hard work to find out which repaints are messed because with some of them, my model (not texture) aircraft.cfg wasn't messed at all but for others it did. 
Thanks to several people, everything should be fine. 

And to let you know, none of 777 or 747 repaints were affected with this issue, neither NGX repaints made after the problem was found. 
In case you find any old NGX repaint which will give you the same problem again, please contact me via one of the ways below so I can re-check it again.
I always do everything what possible to make things correctly so not only me but everyone can enjoy the job I have done. That's the purpose of expanding this project with new files.

Thanks for the reply, I am happy to see that it was just a mistake and not malware!

I appreciate the time and effort you have put in to your liveries. It takes time to do, I know from some experience! Addressing this issue and contacting users on the forum is worthy of being a pro.

Thanks again and keep up the great work!

Hi guys,
To be honest, due to the fact that everything related to sim world, I do as a hobby in my spare time only, avsim or generally any other forum aren't the best way to get in touch with me or gain my attention. 
Usually, I visit forums once per several months like in the case of this particular topic. :-)

And to shed some light on the problem with aircraft.cfg that occurred on my first NGX repaints, here is some info for those who have no experience with these files.
Like every single file read by any system or software, it has been written in some language. I do not know what kind of it is but we can simply read/write it in any text editor.
It looks like this example (taken from default 600 repaint delivered with plane):

sim=B737-600

If you take a look on "description" line, it has strings "\n" or "\n\n" and you won't find any second line of the text separated with "enter" button like in simple text we write usually (also here on forum).
Now, what "\n" means? Quick explanation of it found on other forum:

Quote

\n (Line Feed) - moves the cursor down to the next line without returning to the beginning of the line - In a *nix environment \n moves to the beginning of the line.

Tho, in FSX or P3D it should work, in P3D menu when you check plane's details, it doesn't separate lines in description. I can't recall if in FSX it used to work like it should, maybe it did. 
There is another string - "\r" - which is called Carriage Return and moves the cursor to the beginning of the line without advancing to the next line
Now combination of those to - \r\n will bring End Of Line.

As you can see, \n is a equivalent for "enter" button and it must be used in these config files. 
What I have done was using simply "enter" button to separate the default description from my www address, which generated a ridiculous loop of the empty or address lines.

description=Boeing 737-600 powered by CFM engines v 1.0\nPMDG Simulations\nwww.precisionmanuals.com \n\nProduced under license from Boeing Management Company.\n\nBoeing 737, 737-600 & Boeing are among the trademarks owned by Boeing.
Repaint by FSXLiveries.com


"Enter" button pressed once was the only thing that caused this mess for entire aircraft.cfg for particular model. Since the day I found out what happen, I just removed "enter" separation and added \n before Repaint...
That's the whole story about this mess.
Again, if anyone will find any repaint on my www causing it, please let me know via one of the channels I wrote in previous post. I will take the file down, diagnose it and re-upload in correct form.
Tho it isn't a commercial project, I always do my best to make everything properly. 

Regards
