Accuracy fix for the previously uploaded (NZ3546_FSX.ZIP) NZ Warbirds C-47 'NZ3546' repaint on Manfred Jahn's Douglas C-47. Fix corrects the outline width of the "ROYAL NEW ZEALAND AIR FORCE" lettering. By Markus Hellwig.

Unfortunately, I messed up the outline's width of the "ROYAL NEW ZEALAND AIR FORCE" lettering: The yellow outlining appeared way too 'fat'.

Here's the cure.

Prior installation of my FSX NZ Warbirds C-47 'NZ3546' repaint on Manfred Jahn's excellent Douglas C-47 (filename: is required.


Copy the file to the texture.RNZAF_NZ3546 folder, overwriting the original file.

In order to take full advantage of the crispyness of the high-resolution textures, the exterior skins are saved in 32Bit-888 format. They do look great, but they are a pure frame killer!
If you experience poor frame rates with this repaint, you might replace the exterior texture files with the one included in the DXT5 folder. Just copy this file into the texture folder, overwriting the existing file. You may notice these DXT5 converted files have just the quarter size of the 32Bit (4 MB compared to 16 MB), so performance improvement is simply obvious. The flipside is you're losing sharpness...


Flight simming may harm you. These files won't. They are freeware and must remain FREE! DO NOT EVEN TRY MAKING MONEY WITH IT!

Any uploading or hosting at pay based sites, taking charges for access or increased bandwith/download speed is PROHIBITED.


Many thanks to Manfred Jahn for creating this amazing "Dizzy Three" and sharing it with the community!

This repaint was done utilizing Manfred Jahn's paint kit.


Go fly and have fun!
