I have been away from FSX for a few years, so I may not have done this properly. I tried to install a Cessna 182 from Flyaway last night but the plane did not appear in the aircraft selection menu. The accompanying instructions said to use the Extract to: function and navigate to the Sim Objects/Airplanes folder as the target. Having done that I found that the addon's name appeared beneath every repainted version of the stock Cessna 172 in the menu, though the proper thumbnails remained in the menu. When I selected one of those it produced random parts of the plane at their proper places, but without the remaining parts to create the complete image. I tried adding a different plane with the same results.
Does that indicate my zip client may not be extracting files properly, or is their a more likely issue? Where do I go from here to troubleshoot this problem?
Thanks for assisting. It's good to be home!
