    Welcome back! I took a few years off, and when I returned a couple years ago I was amazed at how much I'd forgotten! I'm still re-learning things I knew back when. So if you find yourself scratching your head over something you thought you knew, you're not the only one!

    Mick started a thread Boeing F4B-3.zip in Warbirds Library
    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FS 2004 Military - Props Description: The late, great Paul "Putt-Putt" Clawson's FS2002/CFS-2 Boeing F4B-4 reworked to depict an F4B-3 for FS9. The big F4B-4 vertical fin was reduced in size and shape using transparency and the alpha channel. A new 2D panel was made to match the VC. Skins are included for the section leaders of the two squadrons that flew the -3 (one Navy, one Marine) plus a colorful plane of VJ-6M at Quantico.

    Mick started a thread Boeing P-12E.zip in Warbirds Library
    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FS 2004 Military - Props Description: The late, great Paul "Putt-Putt" Clawson's FS2002/CFS-2 Boeing F4B-4 slightly reworked to depict an early P-12E for FS9. The big F4B-4 vertical fin was reduced in size and shape using transparency and the alpha channel. A new 2D panel was made to match the VC. Skins are included for seven U.S. Army Air Corps P-12Es, four in olive drab & yellow, and three in the later blue & yellow livery.

    One final thought. Make a copy of a UI section of a paint that shows up correctly. Paste it in at the end of the list in your aircraft.cfg file. Change the to the next number in sequence, make sure the model= line calls up the appropriate classic or modern model, edit the title= line, the texture= line, the variation= line and the atc_id= line. Make the edits to all those lines and no others, leaving everything else the same. This will give you a section that looks like what you have now, but maybe it will have just have a tiny difference that's escaped your inspection. Might work...

    Could it be a simple but hard to see typo in the texture folder name or the UI section of the Aircraft.cfg file? Something like a comma instead of a period in the folder name, texture,whatever instead of texture.whatever or instead of or in either the cfg file or the folder name, a 1 instead of an l, or vise versa? There's gotta be some reason why your sim isn't reading that UI section properly.

    I wish you'd asked a year or so ago, before I threw out the older ones I'll never use, like CFS1, FS98, FS2K, FS2002, Crimson Skies. Gone now.

    Hi Mick. I didn't know it would be that much work to change the drone from yellow to orange, I was hoping it would be a quick change. but yes, if it is a pain I agree it isn't worth the time. I do appreciate you replying, and I do appreciate the yellow drone! Thanks! Bill
