Textures in DXT3 format for fast FPS and little or no loss of visual quality. These are textures only and require Tom Gibson and Greg Pepper's DC6BUAL (1958). By James Underwood.

Always first make a backup of any files you will be modifying!

Create a folder within your DC6Bual folder named "texture.vp" (without the " of course!). Copy all the texture files from the first texture folder into the texture.vp folder. Next, extract or unzip the contents of the dc6bvp.ZIP into texture.vp folder allowing the overwrites.

Now, open the DC6bual aircraft.cfg file with notepad. You will see a listing of the aircraft in there. At the end the aircraft listing, add (copy and paste) the following text example. Where "XX" is in this example, you will need to put the next sequential number that would follow the previous aircraft. If for example your last fltsim.XX aircraft entry is "3", you would duly replace the "XX" with "4" (without the quotes, of course):
