New here. Need to know steps to install planes.
Most downloaded aircraft from FlyAwaySimulation has an explanation of how to install if you download the Base Models. Basically, you need just a few files;
Model folder will have a model configuration file in it specific to the aircraft.
Panel folder will have a panel configuration file & may have a few bmp & cab files in it (depending on the plane, some refer to default aircraft panels & do not need specific files).
Sound folder will have a sound configuration file & some sound files to go along with the mechanics of the plane. Again, it may rely on the default aircraft & therefore not need any.
Texture folder will have some texture files specific to the aircraft.
You will need an Aircraft configuration file & an aircraft .AIR file.
These files are all copied into a folder named after the plane you chose, in the
<C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes> folder
or if it's a helicopter, you can place it in the <... SimObjects\Rotorcraft> folder.
When you start the sim, the plane will appear in the program aircraft listing.
