Help the new guy

Bigman_j Guest

Hey, I am new to the flight sims. Can you all help me? I am not able to get the other airplanes on the ground. I can't taxi my plane either. How do I get other planes like the 727 or L-1011 on my game? Thanx in advance for the help 🙂

I erased my previous message at it seems to me (after I saw Radarmans' answer) I misunderstood your question.......Radarman has given a rather extensive explanation on how to add planes.

List your system specs (video card also) and do you have a joystick.
Please explain your problem step by step.

Here are the aircraft installation instructions.

You need WinZip to unzip the folders.
You can get the trial one at WinZip it's the best you can use and the trial will last for years.

I think I know what you are asking but I try answering two ways.
One, If you cannot find your downloads to "unzip" them, send them to "My Computer", "My Briefcase" or even to "Desktop".
You can enter them from any of those areas.
I download to a folder that I have in "My Briefcase" it's just handy for me that way.
Installing.
Ok,
I do it a more complicated way, but it works.
Make certain you have a full aircraft not just textures.

Unzip the file and now it's in it's own little window, you work from there. Dump the jpgs.

dblc=double-click

dblc on "My Computer"
dblc on The "C" drive icon.
dblc on "Program files"
dblc on "Microsoft Games".
dblc on "Flight Simulator.

Now you have all the folders laid out in front of you.
Follow the directions in the read-me that came with the aircraft.
Put the gauges in the gauge folder.
Put the effects in the effects folder.
Put the aircraft in the aircraft folder; make certain it has the correct name of the plane.

Now go crash land like I do.

when i try to create my own flight my plane spawns at the end of the runway. I can't see it at the terminal or taxi it or anything like that. Do I have to complete the pilot training before i am able to do any of this?

If you haven't done so I would recommend doing all the training lessons.
Sure - it takes ages 😀 but personally I learned a good bit about aircraft operation, gauge reading, and operational procedures etc.
Fair enough, Rod's comments/jokes are lame at times, but oh well I found it worth it Wink

I can start at gates / parkings by simply selecting that in the departure airport screen when creating a flight.
(When you create a flight, and are in the 'starting / departure airport' screen, at the bottom you will see a drop-down field that says "Active Runway".
That's what I meant - here i select my starting position, you can change to parking, gate, cargo bays, whatever you like).
Did you try that?

Do it - taxiing is fun Wink
