Adding Additional Textures for Default 737

I downloaded two seperate AI replacements for the default 737 and am trying to install them. I can install one pack fine as they just overwrite whats there. If I then try to install the second pack it will again want to overwrite but would overwrite my one I put in from the first pack.

I played around and renamed the new folders so the numbers follow on e.g. texture.5, texture.6 etc and then in the aircraft.cfg I added the new bits for the new textures with the new numbers 5, 6 etc but it does not work 😞

Anyone care to help me 😉

Remember, there are two types of default 737s in FS9. The flyable ones and the AI ones. It sounds as though you are overwriting the flyable 737 with an AI 737 - not a good idea.

To save us all a lot of to and fro you should tell us the filenames of the 'packs' you're trying to install and which library you downloaded them from. This way we can have a look at the various .cfgs straight away (as I suspect that there are more than one that have to be scrutinized).

NOTE: If you are using AI packs from different authors, you probably have different base models which means that you can not just simply add extra textures to the first model you've already installed.

But we're all guessing here... we need more info Idea

Hi

I originally downloaded from this site, filename ai_b737e.zip.

The additional one I wanted to put in is from Flightsim.com called ai_b737.zip.

Thanks.

Here's one that you can check quickly; when you copied the [Fltsim.x] segments in the aircraft.cfg, did you update the numbers for the new segments, and did you change the "Title=" line in the new segments?

If you do not correctly number the [Fltsim.x] lines, all planes from the first wrong [fltsim.x] line onwards (that are in one aircraft.cfg file) will not load.

I also think, but have never actually tested this, having duplicate "title=" lines in your FS9 installation will cause conflicts for AI traffic, as this is one of FS9's identifiers for (AI?) aircraft.
