    The Majestic Dash 8 is surely one of the best addons ever made.

    VirtualCol's Dash 8 series includes Q-100, 200, 300 and 400.
    You get what you pay for, but there are lots of skins!

    Trying to make a Dash 8-100 work in p3dv4. I use Model X Converter but it keeps coming up missing DECAL_NNUMBER.BMP and RIGHTTAIL_D.BMP are missing which they are and I go to Flyaway Simulation where this came from and someone said:

    I am repainting the FSX default Dash8-100. I notice the fuselage repaint is one sided ie the left side of the aircraft, so there is a separate DDS file called "Decal_DH_dash8_100.dds" which puts the airline name onto the fuselage and flips it to face the right way on the other side of the fuselage (right hand side).
    Question is how do I create a 'second' .dds file to put the registration on one side and it flips it to the other side of the fuselage? What would I call the file and how do I get it to locate in the correct position on the aircraft?
    Too difficult? I can't figure it out.

    That's an interesting question. I'm not very knowledgeable with it comes to repainting but I would have thought that there would be different texture files for each side of the aircraft. Is this not the case?

    WE"ll this is my problem and I don't know anything about painting but this was suppose to be a complete plane and I am missing 2 pieces.... Wanted to use the Piedmont paint on it for an ai. Anyone got these testures laying around..lol......Dash 8-39 (Microsoft David8_100 FSX)

    Any help appreciated,



    Bob M.

    I have this and itís true, you get what you pay for. However, I am satisfied with what I got for what I spent. Decent graphics and tons of paints. I usually donít fly study sims, I just want to set up a flight and go and this lets you with no hassles.
