ok so I recently downloaded a Simbuilders Airbus A340-600 and a Virgin Atlantic texture. I have tried hard to get the textures to work but all i get is the non-textured plain grey aircraft. I put the texture file into the folder but nothing shows up. How do I get the textures to work?

This should help.

Unfortunately you're not telling us which file you downloaded. Most of the still available Simu 340-600/500s are incomplete or textures only.

Here's what I've done:

http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=71053

This file contains the model and FDE which is a must. It does NOT include a panel or sound folder - but you can copy and paste these over from your default 737 (sound) and 747 (panel) for the time being. At least you'll have a flyable aircraft now.

To add your Virgin textures, assuming the file is this one:

http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=vir_a346.zip&Author=&CatID=root

...just drop the folder named texture.vir into your Airbus 340-600 Lufthansa folder.

Open the aircraft.cfg with notepad, delete all of the text and replace it with this:
