In the original AlphSim F-80 paint schemes, one set was for a Navy trainer out of Oakland in 1965. I did like that basic scheme, so I figured to redo it a bit to fit my templates and "personalize" it while it was in the paint hangar. Full texture set in 2048x2048 dds format. Tested in FSX Steam Edition. For the now freeware Alphasim F-80 available here. By Willy McCoy.

Installation:

  • I'm assuming that most of us have done this before and know you have to have the original AlphaSim F-80 installed in order for this to work.
  • First, I have no idea where FSX is located on your system. I have FSX Steam which is:
    Program Files(x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/FSX
  • Inside the main FSX folder is the SimObjects folder, the the Airplanes folder and the F-80 folder should reside in there.
  • Place the texture.xxxxxxx into the main F-80 folder.
  • Note: All texture files needed are supplied in .dds DXT-5 format. No need to use any of the original bmp DXT 3 or 888 32 bit textures.
  • Copy and paste the following section to the aircraft.cfg file, replacing the xx in [fltsim.xx] with the next number in sequence with other repaints already there (i.e [fltsim.0, fltsim.1, etc.)

NOTAM: Before anyone asks, I put it in the aircraft menu selection as a F-80 rather than a TV-1 to make it easier to find.
