DC-3 Air Dynamics Modification (default aircraft, 3-tank). This package offers a modified aircraft.cfg file for the default Douglas DC3. Support documentation explains what changes have been made to make the plane fly more closely to the published specifications for the real DC-3, vintage 1939. Supplied with backup file for easy installation. By Mark Beaumont and Dave Bitzer.

Unzip DC3_BB3.ZIP to a temporary folder.

The file 'aircraft.cfg' is a replacement for your default DC-3 'aircraft.cfg' and 'aircraft_BK_orig.cfg' is a backup of the Microsoft original.

If you have made no changes to your default DC-3 (i.e. added no other aircraft texture sets) then you can simply move these two files to your "....\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\Douglas_DC3\" folder and overwrite what's there. If, however, you have added extra texture sets, then you will already know how to cut and paste your list of extra [flightsim.XXX] entries into this new 'aircraft.cfg' file.

(Alternatively, copy everything from [GENERAL] down in this new file and paste it into your existing 'aircraft.cfg' file in the same position i.e. overwriting everything from [GENERAL] down.)

Should you decide that this new file is not for you for any reason, then remove it and rename 'aircraft_BK_orig.cfg' to 'aircraft.cfg' (taking care to preserve any [flightsim.XXX] entries you might have added).

Finally, note the folder called "Support Specifications", which is intended for your reference and is self-explanatory. Click on the file of the same name within the folder to read this browser-based document. We suggest that you also move this folder to your 'Douglas_DC3' folder within FS2004, together with this README.
