Available now in a downloadable version is FS Repaint, a utility for FS2004 and FS2002 that lets anyone easily and quickly repaint their planes. FS Repaint works with most planes, including those made with Gmax or FS Design Studio. For more information, click on Read More.

FS Repaint -- Repaint your aircraft ... easily.

Yesterday marked the launch of FS Repaint.

As its name suggests, you can use this software to change the appearance of your Flight Simulator aircraft.

Using the new add-on, you can now quickly expand your fleet. Whether you want to change the shade of the fuselage, add a new logo to the tail fin or engage in a complete "restoration" of an old classic, FS Repaint will get the job done.

Here's a few recent comments from beta testers:

"Just had a quick try using the default R22, and it works like a dream ! The program's front end is a joy to use...The fact that FSRepaint maintains the reflective textures is a real time saver.", SC from U.K.

"I made a few changes to the Cessna 172 which was fairly easy to do and that change was on my own. (HELP files were not available to this beta tester at this time)", JS from Illinois.

"I think you have a winner here, especially how I can view my project with the alpha's and even edit the Alpha and RGB at the same time. You have a winner here I am sure!", T.H. from Canada.

"I've spent the last couple of nights intensively repainting the default FS2004 R22, and all was going swimmingly.", MH from Ohio.

Users can download a Demo version of FS Repaint. The Demo has all of the capabilities of the full package except for saving the modifications.

FS Repaint can be used to repaint most FS2004 and FS2002 aircraft including the stock aircraft, FS Design Studio aircraft and gmax aircraft, both freeware and payware. Certain encrypted or highly modified aircraft may not be supported.

Now available by download for $29
Available on CD-ROM September 15th for $29.95

 Shipments to computer stores and mass merchandise retail stores begin late September.
