    For use in X-Plane 11 only! For use upon Leading Edge Simulation's ("LES") DC-3 (v1.4, the latest is made for XP10), available at... http://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/douglas-p-84.html This livery depicts how it was delivered to Delta by Douglas Aircraft in 1940. This particular aircraft, known as "Ship 41" was Delta's first passenger-carrying DC-3 (since its sibling "Ship 40" was tasked for pilot training). Over the years, Ship 41 flew in continuous service for many other owners. In 1993, Ship 41 was located in Puerto Rico and flown back to Atlanta for a full restoration. Upon completion in 1999, Ship 41 became the keystone of the Delta Flight Museum. For more information, visit... https://www.deltamuseum.org/exhibits/delta-history/aircraft-by-type/propeller/douglas-dc-3 https://www.deltamuseum.org/exhibits/exhibits/aircraft/dc-3-ship-41 http://www.douglasdc3.com/delta41/delta41.htm https://www.jetphotos.com/showphotos.php?regsearch=NC28341 Use of this livery requires... * X-Plane 11 * A legal copy of LES's DC-3, which needs to be installed into your X-Plane 11's aircraft repository * A text editor, to revise select .obj files * A full understanding that by installing the DC-3 and applying the modifications mentioned herein, you waive any support from the developer (LES), who has not yet authorized this digital model for use in X-Plane 11 To install this livery (X-Plane version 11 only): * Using your favorite file manager, move the two files found this package's "objects" folder to your LES DC-3's root "objects" folder, as found when installed for X-Plane 11. You should not be challenged to overwrite any existing files. If you are challenged, skip this step. * From within the "liveries" folder, move the folder named "Delta Early" into your LES DC-3's "liveries" subfolder. To update the LES DC-3 (v1.4, the latest made for XP10) for use in X-Plane 11: * If you want to continue utilizing military/matte finishes, duplicate the entire LES DC-3 folder before proceeding. Otherwise, all your liveries will be subject to X-Plane 11's PBR feature. * Prior to editing the files mentioned below, you may want duplicate them, ensuring that the duplicate names include the words "ORIGINAL" or "BACKUP" to indicate their re-purpose. * Using your favorite text editor, open each of the following files, which are location in the aircraft's root "objects" folder/directory: Engines.obj Floats.obj Glass.obj L_Fuselage.obj Landing Gear.obj Props.obj R_Fuselage.obj Wings.obj * Near the top of each file, is a small group of statements. * At the bottom of this group, add a new line with the following entry (assuming that it does not already exist): GLOBAL_specular 1.0 * Insert another new line with the following: NORMAL_METALNESS * Repeat this new entries for all eight object files, saving them to their current location. * Perform additional edits to the following files: Engines.obj Floats.obj Glass.obj Landing Gear.obj * Search for occurrences of statements beginning with "ATTR", usually located near the bottom of .obj files. * Replace those occurrences by adding the code for a remark (the hashtag character "#", typically made by the keyboard combination of Shift-3) followed by a space. For speed and accuracy, use your text editor's search-and-replace function to replace the phrase "ATTR" with "# ATTR" (without the double quotation marks). * Save each file and close it. * Exit your text editor. To use this livery: * Start X-Plane 11. * From the Flight Configuration view, scroll to (or search for) the LES_Douglas DC-3 variants. * At the aircraft's icon, click "Customize". * At the aircraft's detailed view, open the livery pull-down menu in the upper-right corner. * Select the desired livery. * In the bottom right corner, click "Start Flight" (or, if it appears instead, "Start New Flight"). Artist Note: The "DELTA" on the right-hand nacelle is backwards because the aircraft developer chose to use a single texture area for both left and right nacelles. C'est la vie.
