Hi

I guess this question has been posted at leat 100-times, but as I have the following handicaps, I'm from Sweden living in Spain, 60+, newbie and a few things more smiley !!!!

PLEASE help me smiley !!! I have downloaded a some files, Airbus A300-B4-600R, Airbus Beluga and Airbur A300-B2 BUT the Readme.txt file is a 0-file and I am to stupid to figure out how/where to install the planes. I have FSX and have tried to install the files where I think they should be installed (in the Simobjects/Airplanes directory) but they don't show up in the "plane list" in FSX.

Give me a clue! Yes I am a 1class member.

Hi I'm back again smiley

Downloaded the posting you suggested and read it CAREFULLYsmiley. This is what my downloaded .zip file looks like:

blanc.beluga File folder
model.600st File folder
screenshot File folder
texture.600st File folder
virtual_cockpit File folder
contact_and_license.txt Text document 1kb
copy your boeing737-400.air here.txt Text document 0kb
description.txt Text document 1kb
gpl.txt Text documet 12kb
mkmdl.parts.xml XML document 1kb
modifications_of_aircraft.cfg.txt Text document 2kb

In the posting you talk about the following files

model
panel
sound
texture

Those files make sense to me as I have copied such files into my "FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes/name_of_plane" librarys many times even downloaded files from SimNetwork BUT in this case there are NO such files in the .zip file!!!!

So sorry to say smiley I'm still on square one!
