FSX Deluxe : Is this a Red Gold Cessna ?

Recommended Posts

I was looking to load a FSX plane similar to the Red 172 in FS9.Found a Skyhawk Red, Gold listed, but does not look to have any Red or Gold. Install glitch or does everyone have this issue?http://www.pbase.com/jackcnd/image/68181603/original.jpgFSX Screenshots: http://www.pbase.com/jackcnd/fsx

Try this, select the Red, Gold Skyhawk by clicking the OK button. Then go back and try and change to one of the other Skyhawk color variations. Didn't work did it? After selecting the Red, Gold variation you can't select another color variation until you restart FSX.-Thad

The texture= should be texture=5, with a texture.5 directory. The texture.5 dir does not exist.I tried to copy files from FS2004 but it did not work, FS2004 is using .bmp where FSX is using .ddsAny have any suggestions...[fltsim.5]title=Cessna Skyhawk 172SPsim=Cessna172SPmodel=panel=sound=texture=kb_checklists=Cessna172SP_checkkb_reference=Cessna172SP_refatc_id=N760PLui_manufacturer="Cessna"ui_type="C172SP Skyhawk"ui_variation=" Red, Gold"ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop"ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"description="A stable and trustworthy plane, most pilots have logged ...

Oh no this is pretty bad news. Microsoft have left out textures! Can we have an official comment from ACES on this? Paul?I must say the write ups for FSX in this forum are not great at all. ACES can you lift the spirit in this forum?

In their rush they must've left it out. Like they forgot about replacing the desert airstrip textures in Alaska.

It may not matter that the FS2004 textures are bitmaps. FSX handles imported FS2004 planes that have bmp textures. However, I suppose they could be altered to dss using DXTBMP.

There is a basic texture folder and textures 1,2,3,4 and G1000. If the texture for the red/gold calls out the texture folder and it should be texture.5 then what is the basic texture folder for? There are no other variations that specify the texture folder other than the red/gold one. Regards, Bob.
