There have been a lot of questions about why the Red/Gold Cessna is actually white. The answer is a simple one in that it's a simple bug that was either missed, or postponed in favor of focusing on bigger nastier bugs. The description should have said "White" instead.

The best solution would be to have a talented individual create a new livery based on the white one and make a Red and Gold livery.

Sorry I didn't provide an answer sooner.

  • Now I finally will be able to sleep again !!!!! Thanks Paul ! <g>.

  • not exactly correct, it's a complete missing texture, the texture folder can not even be found and if you choose this texture you can not choose another texture without a restart. So in order to use it you need the texture folder.

  • the folder for this texture is the generic "Texture" folder in the aicraft folder, rather than "Texture.x". Inside this folder is the blank/white texture we are talking about, so there is a texture folder, contrary to your post.

    Heres the Fl


    title=Cessna Skyhawk 172SP










    ui_type="C172SP Skyhawk"

    ui_variation=" Red, Gold"

    ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop"

    ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation"


    As you can see the texture part is left blank, so it uses the "Texture" folder.

    If you want to make this accurate, just change the ui_variation to " White", otherwise create a new paint yourself ;-)

    Also remember that theres a "Show all variations" checkbox to bring up all the textures, so people appear to have missed this according to the forums...

    Cheers for the update though, i really like the "in touch with the community" direction FS is going.

  • then why can no one change textures after selecting this one then ?

  • Also the dc3 cargo, when you select that one you will also not be able to choose another skin same problem there. What you do as for example the cessna pick the red/gold or should we say white skin and then after select another cessna skin now you see it wont show, and the same problem is with this dc3 cargo,

  • So now that the texture folder has been found I can stop running around trying to get someone to figure out when or if we can provide it for download... That makes things a little easier.

    I'll have to look into why there would be any problem not being able to change textures after selecting the white variant though. I have no idea what is going on with that.

  • yeah and the dc3 cargo variation the same story, i hope you can fix it somehow, but if u make it work then it's definatly something everyone will apreciate.

  • I think a slow analysis of all the issues mentioned by various forum members would be the best way to go.  I expected a few issues here and there and based on past releases I hope we see a single patch at some point in the future.

  • Anything new on this problem and how to fix it ?
