Here's another late vote for #1, but... a luxury request... although the instrument lights on #2 make it a bit cluttered to my eye, I like the idea of two alternative texture sets, one with light use and one with heavier wear that'd fit with some of the "beater" repaints.
An analogy - over on the A2A forums, member "warbirds" posted an alternative, heavy-use set of VC textures for the B-17. Here's the thread. I've taken to using the original textures for modern aircraft like Sentimental Journey and Fuddy Duddy, and the worn ones for some of the high-mileage repaints like Jankees' Outhouse Mouse, Ol' Gappy and A Bit o' Lace.
It'd be nice to be able to mix and match between, say, the HD American Airlines DC-3 repaint and 102DH or some of the CBI C-47s.
Obvious but important...
