Yes, I do believe I am. Took awhile but for someone stuck in the 80s not bad. Will keep practicing. Looking for Braniff Big Orange 747 next.

Throw in my 10 cents here fer what its worth

as somebody who has personally Injected over 4,800 Aircraft into my FSX Simulator.

The most "Important" lines to look for mistakes in a download, and i've caught a few, everything from 1 number or letter being outta sync and / or left out to one of these being left out [ ,,,,, to not changing the number xx , to the next one in the series in order.



[fltsim.xx] // Change "xx" to next number in sequence starting from 0
title=HJG Douglas DC-8-73 Trans America 1983 { ------may be changed to read anything you prefer.
sim=DC-8-73_2k4 { ------- very Important pay attention !!!!!!!!
model= { ---------- also very important to pay close attention to !!!!!!!!
panel= { ----------- pay attention to this era too, if using a specific panel or more than 1 panel with 1 particular aircraft.
sound=
texture=transamerica_1983_73_n872tv { --- has to match exactly the "Texture Folder" Name - NO exceptions !!!
kb_checklists= not all that necessary really
kb_reference= not all that necessary really
visual_damage=1
description=HJG Douglas DC-8-73 { this can be anything you want it to say, type in anything you want !!
ui_manufacturer=Douglas { this can be the manufacturer of the rest of your Aircraft, sometimes it has the developers name tho !!
ui_type=DC-8-73 {------------ this also very important
ui_variation=Trans America (1983) { this too very important
atc_id=N872TV {--- may be changed to suit your preference
atc_airline= { ----- anything you want to name it
atc_flight_number= { anything you want to name it
atc_heavy=0
atc_parking_codes=TVA
atc_parking_types


The above I've experimented back and forth with Various Aircraft thru out the 4,800 Aircraft I've downloaded.

I have caught some "uploaders", with mistakes in their Aircraft CFG Files, sometimes something a little as a [ left out or 1 letter or number left out of sequence.

The Sim = part is where I catch mistakes often enough

and the Texture =area as well,,, often I have found an entirely Different name in this area - that "Does NOT" match the actual Texture Folder, which would cause the Aircraft NOT to show up in the Menu list of planes to Fly from.
so this is a very important area too, pay close attention to !!!

Hope this Tid bit of information helps those learning to install different paints and or Aircraft they've download.
