Is this in FSDS or in the sim? I know in Gmax the transparent part doesn't show in the preview, only in the sim.Are you sure your texture is saved in the correct format, with alpha channel? You are correct on the alpha, black for transparent and white to see it.What sim?Can't help with the FSDS settings as I don't have the current version.Regards, MichaelKDFW

Which FS version are you working with?Also in the first post you mention a setting for using the alpha channel as reflection, that is not the same as using it for transparency. So be sure that reflection is not turned on when you want transparency.
