FSX Cessna 172

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Cessna 172. This repaints the default Cessna to a modern Cessna paint stripe scheme. It uses the stock instrumentation, not the Garmin system, though that is very easily adapted. By William Ortis.

This is a repaint only for the stock Cessna 172 in Flight Simulator X. (This will 'not' work in FS2004. This is a DDS texture set). This repaints the default Cessna to a modern Cessna paint stripe scheme. This uses the stock instrumentation, not the Garmin system, though that is very easily adapted. Remember to turn off 'Show Aircraft ID' as this aircraft features its own Registry in the paint scheme. By William Ortis.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Drop the N6168F folder into your default C172 folder in Flight Simulator X.

Open the 'aircraft.cfg' file with Windows Notepad

Go to the last aircraft entry paragraph selection (paragraph for each one of the several Cessna 172's that show up in FSX), and copy/paste the below aircraft entry beneath the last aircraft entry.

description="A stable and trustworthy plane, most pilots have logged at least a few hours in a Cessna 172, since it's the most widely available aircraft in the rental fleet, and is used by most flight schools. Since the first prototype was completed in 1955, more than 35,000 C172s have been produced, making it the world's most popular single-engine plane. One of Cessna's first tricycle-gear airplanes, the 172 quickly became the favorite of a growing class of business pilots. Its reliability and easy handling (along with thoughtful engineering and structural updates) have ensured its continued popularity for decades."


////////////////////////////END COPY HERE//////////////////////////////////


LASTLY AND IMPORTANT; UNCLICK 'SHOW AIRCRAFT ID' IN THE 'DETAILS' SELECTION OF YOUR NEW PLANE WHEN YOU SELECT THE CESSNA. (Click on the Cessna 'G-GFEA', then click 'DETAILS', then untick 'Show Aircraft ID'). If you do not untick this, the numbers will appear over the graphics registry number.

This repaint was created by William Ortis at Lionheart Creations Ltd.

I'm attempting to install the Cessna 172 repaint to FSX. When saving the data to aircraft.cfg, it says "Access is Denied." Can you help? Thanks.
