If, in the spirit of the holiday season and to delight your offspring, you downloaded Rudolph The Red-Nosed DC-3 (DC3SANTA.ZIP), you may have noticed that no presents are seen to fall from the aircraft as were promised. You have, no doubt, been concerned as to whether you were good enough this year to merit any, haven't you? However, rest at ease. The lack of gifts is all down to a major stuff-up by Santa's Chief Elf, who uploaded old working files in error rather than the finished packages. So here are sackfuls of presents to remedy things. Please apologize to your children and, once again, Merry Christmas! By Mark Beaumont.

Presents that actually fall from the aircraft, rather than being merely a figment of the imagination.

  • Move the enclosed folder EFFECTS (containing subfolder 'texture') to your main 'Flight Simulator 9' folder.
