Finnish Air Force Douglas DC-2 'DC-1'. This is a repaint for the Douglas DC2 package by the Uiver Team X. The revenue from the sales of the DC-2 package will be donated to the Aviodrome, Dutch National Aviation Theme Park and Museum. By Tim Scharnhop.

INSTALLATION

This download requires the previous installation of the Douglas DC-2 package for FSX and presumes a standard installation of this package.

1. Unzip dc2X_finaf2.ZIP to a temporary folder, ensuring that you retain folder names.

2. Within the download, move the texture folder 'texture.finaf2' to the folder 'Douglas_DC2_X' within your 'Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes' folder.

3. If you have installed the latest version of the DC-2 (the last update is from 12/31/2010) you are already done. If not, I would strongly recommend to do so, as the latest update includes many enhancements.

4. Open the aircraft.cfg with a text editor. Enter the following section under the last [flightsim.XX] entry, numbering it sequentially:

[fltsim.XX]
title=Douglas DC-2 Finnish Air Force DC-1 X
sim=uiver_aviodrome
model=old

sound=
texture=finaf2
checklists=
kb_checklists=douglas_dc2_check
kb_reference=douglas_dc2_ref

atc_id=DC-1
description=DC-2-115E (MSN 1354), as it appeared after it was donated by Count von Rosen to the Finnish Air Force in mid-January 1940. Later the aircraft was used by the Air Force Staff and among others as the personal transport of Marshal Mannerheim. A protective camouflage was applied in March 1942 and the aeroplane was re-numbered DO-1.\nFSX Flight Dynamics: Tom Falley, Rob Cappers\nModel: Alexander Schreijnders, Jan Visser, Rob Cappers\nTextures: Tim Scharnhop, Gerrit Kranenbarg, Jan Visser\nVC, Interior: Rob Cappers, Tim Scharnhop, Jan Visser\nXML & DLL Programming: HansJörg Naegele\nGauge bitmaps: Rob Cappers, Tim Scharnhop\nEffects: Roland Berger

5. Save the file. You're done. Your new aircraft will now appear in the aircraft selection menu within the sim.
