The new addition to the SGA fleet, the updated DC10 is loaded with features, including some new and exclusive features that are unique to SGA. As you have come to expect, this aircraft includes dynamic shine, full animations, opening passenger and cargo doors, full and accurate lighting, and wing views. Repainted by Steve Drabek.

If you haven't already downloaded the base aircraft.

Once you've installed the base aircraft, unzip this archive to your main FS2004 folder, being sure to check the option "Use folder names".

This will place the textures in the correct folder (texture.fe) in the Aircraft\SGA_DC-10-30 directory.

Now that you've done that, open your aircraft.cfg file and add another [fltsim.XX] section.

For example, I have included the section you'll need to add. You can copy this to your aircraft.cfg file if you wish, but you MUST copy it below the LAST [fltsim.XX] section, AND change the XX with the next number in your sequence (I wouldn't know this number because everyone will have a varying amount of installed airlines)

description= FedEx repaint by Steve Drabek. The Series 30 offered considerably improved payload and range capability with increased fuel capacity and thrust, which necessitated an increase of 10 feet in wingspan and the addition of a center main landing gear assembly. Most popular of all the variants, a total of 206 Series 30s were built, including 27 -30CFs, 4 extended range -30ERs, and 12 pure freighter -30Fs. Unlike the Series 10, most -30s were ordered without the optional lower deck galley to allowed increased cargo capacity. First revenue flight for a Series 30ER was on December 15, 1972 with Swissair. The Series 30CF (Convertible Freighter) was first certified in March 1973 and placed into revenue service in April 1973.

After you've copyed and or changed the values, save and close, then go fly her!

Or, if you have your DC-10s in a custom folder, you have to copy the textures out of the texture.fe folder and into a new one you create, then modify the aircraft.cfg as required.
