install noob question

Hey everyone,

This is my first post on this forum and I'm sure it's been posted a million times, but I'm very computer illiterate and am having a hard time installing aircraft.

I click download, I click save, the plane downloads, I click open, and there's a folder there.. what do I do next? Please make this easy to understand!

Thanks and sorry for the dumb question.

Hey RadarMan,

I tried to do that but it still doesn't work. I installed winzip, then I took my plane and put the aircraft in the aircraft folder, gauges in gauge folder, and effects in that folder but it still doesn't show up on my aircraft menu on the game. Man I'm confused!

cabe,
A few (of many) reasons that the aircraft that you installed correctly won't show in the menu.

It's not a 2004 aircraft for the flight sim, or it may be for CFS.
It's listed under the manufacturers name, sometimes they have more than one.
Put "any" in the top window and choose from the center window (in the menu).

Try loading a simple aircraft first so you can get the idea.

Hey RadarMan,

Thanks, the directions are now working Smile It was still sort of a disappointment, I dl'd the SR-71 Blackbird, no landing gear, mediocre graphics, unstable in the air. Oh well, just have to try something else! Oh, another questtion, is it possible to take out the altitude limitation of 99,999'?

Thanks again,
Caleb

The blackbird is a 2002 I think, that a common problem with loading a 2002 into 2004.

No you can only reach 99,999 and can't fly over the poles, north or south.

Try this one.

Hey RM why cant you fly over the poles?
I thought I did the other day but maybe not...

As far as I know they left that option out.

Anyone back me up or rip me apart?

Back you up. I tried it once in a 747 from Anchorage to Russia. My flight path took me over the north pole. My 747 flipped over and overstressed the acircraft. That was in FS2002 though. :confused:
