FSX Orbit Airlines DeHavilland Dash 8

Jump to: Comments | File Details

Textures only for the default FSX AI Dash 8. Includes files to make it flyable. By Stephen Hulme.

Intro:
The default Dash-8's in FSX don't come in the latest Orbit Airlines colors. So I've made one that does.

The artwork was derived from Microsoft's default Dash-8s and Orbit Airlines aircraft.

Installation:

To install, extract the zip file and put a copy of 'texture.orbit' into '...\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\DH_Dash8_100\'. Copy the text below and paste it into 'DH_Dash8_100\aircraft.cfg', changing the 'xxx' to the next number in the series.

To make the plane flyable, copy the 'sound' and 'panel' folders into the 'DH_Dash8_100' folder.

AI:
This texture can replace that of the default Orbit Airlines Dash-8 (the one with the red stripe). Just replace the default aircraft.cfg with the one labled as AI and rename it to 'aricraft.cfg'

DON"T FORGET TO MAKE A BACKUP! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING BREAKS!

Enjoy, and I hope you like the repaint!

Feel free to use, share, distribute and enjoy, but don't think of making a cent from this aircraft.

Once again, a brilliant package... but the speed hold switch on the autopilot, it don't work, and the door does not open. If you could solve this, it would help A LOT
