1)After downloading the zip, locate it, and extract the zip to a temp folder.

2)If you already have my UPF-7 from FS9 flying in FSX, you can back it up to a new area first, or just get rid of it. This new release will work without the old package.

3)Copy the UPF-7 folder over to your FSX Aircraft Folder.

4) Copy the gauge files over to your FSX gauges folder. If asked to overwrite, choice is yours.

5) If you don't already have the fx_vclight_deepred effects file, install the file to your FSX effects folder.

1) The tex's have been resized to 2048x2048. Don't know if this really helps, but it makes it easier for me:0)

2) The VC has been rebuilt with more 3-D switches,levers, and reflective gauges.

To all who download and enjoy my planes:-)
And to all of the makers of all the tutorials, utilities, tips, like Airwrench, DXTBMP, How-to's etc. Couldn't do it without you!!
Can't remember who made the HUD gauge and HUD buttons, but thanks all the same!

This aircraft was tested in FSX, with Acceleration Add-on.
This aircraft was built using the FSX SP-2 SDK.

Flight Model set to HARD
Plane Textures set to HIGH
Screen res set to 1280x1024
P4 2.8 GHZ
19" NEC 1970GX LCD Flat Monitor
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 7600 512MB Vidcard
TM Cougar HOTAS/Sietek Pro Pedals
Results with your Computer and Sim Settings may vary.

This model was built to the best of my skills, knowledge, and simply to my own tastes and standards.
If something is "missing", or "wrong", oh well, you got it for a good price:-) For a one-man shop, I think I do pretty well:-p

As for repaints, new versions, etc. I have no idea if, when, or what. So please, no "placing orders".
These files shouldn't harm your computer, but I accept no responsability for their use and effect.
Play with it,do repaints, give to friends or enemies(SEE BELOW), but do not make money off of it without my express approval. This also goes for any other peoples' files in this release.
