Liveries darker and missing cockpit

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone, first of all I want to thank you all for reading this topic. I still got some issues about Liveries. I know it is an argument already faced multiple times, but I am still working hard to make some texture to recognize correctly. First of all I would like to make a list of what I have done:


I purchased Aerosoft Bundle for A318/A319/A320/A321. With the downloads there are two folders about paintkits (example: AS_PAINTKITS_A320A321_FINAL.zip ). I would also thank every designer like holgi who did an exceptional work, they are artist and I really thank them.


the first differences are visible opening the folder:

The list on the left have many more elements and miss texture, airbus_vc_enviromap.dds and thumbnail. In addition the file has extension psd instead of dds. I copied the texture.cfg and airbus_vc_enviromap.dds in the other folder and I added the folder to relative simobject.


My firts question is about this step. Is correct to copy those or I am still missing something? There are some psd file unnecessary? Is correct that the extension is .psd?


Then I edited the main file containing the configuration text, for example the list on the right has been already given:


title                    = Airbus A320 AIR MALTA 9H-AEO
sim                    = A320
model                    =
panel                    =
sound                    =
texture                    = AMC_9H-AEO
kb_checklists                =
kb_reference                =
atc_id                    = 9H-AEO
atc_airline                = AIR MALTA
atc_flight_number            =
ui_manufacturer                = Airbus
ui_type                    = A320-214 CFM
ui_variation                = AIR MALTA
ui_typerole                = Commercial Airliner
ui_createdby                = Aerosoft
atc_parking_types            = GATE, RAMP
atc_parking_codes               = AMC
description                = Airbus A320 - 214 CFM / AIR MALTA 9H-AEO \nwww.aerosoft.com \nRepaint by Holger Sobl (simtexture.de / Holgi)


Now I would like to ask you if lines in red are the only one to be changed when adding an aircraft and which are the rules. Please correct me if I am wrong:


title = should be chosen an Arbitrary name without rules

sim = model of aircraft (320, 321, 318, 319)
model = should be null or 'SHARKLET' if model is sharklet or others
texture = shoud have the same name of the folder (Texture.givenName)
atc_id = should be chosen an Arbitrary name without rules
atc_airline = should be chosen an Arbitrary name without rules
ui_type = type of aircraft  (A320-214 CFM, IAE, etc)
ui_variation  = should be chosen an Arbitrary name without rules


Can someone confirm me or correct me please? thank you for support
