    26 FREE DC3 Liveries now Available

    Hi Good People,

    Edward and I have finally drawn a line on the Default Microsoft DC3 texture developments for the Ford Tri-Motor Project.

    Started off with just 10 to be done and ended up with 26 comprehensive, unique and I hope visually enjoyable liveries for your simulation enjoyment.

    These textures will work with both the FS2004 and the FSX versions.

    There are 17 liveries available - originally planned as the total :-)


    - but then we got carried away and added another 9 as a BONUS pack of liveries.

    In the Bonus Pack area are some SPECIAL liveries - created as a tribute to the sites THAT have tolerated our forum posts graciously over the years.

    They include (in no specific order) SIM-OUTHOUSE.COM - FLIGHTSIM.COM - AVSIM.COM - SIMVIATION.COM



    Plus a tribute to PCPilot and Microsoft - just for visual enjoyment.



    And to round it off - two DC3 repaint tinkers for the late 1940's - (outside the Ford Project era) but we think worthy of sharing with the community.



    And there is a nice LOUD fictional United States Airways livery also available as a tribute to the country of origin for the DC3 - you can check her out on the web page.

    Where do you get all of these great FREE liveries - why of course at the Ford Tri-Motor Project site

    Enjoy

    My word Garry... beautiful works of art, even the presentation is a work of art!

    Thanks mate - yes some nice looking girls in this batch - a couple of months of very hard work with the seriously limited Default DC3 model - but I think we have come up with a pretty good batch of historical texture renditions for this girl.

    Happy Simming

    I found and downloaded this awesome set before you even published them I did notice that several of the livery links toward the bottom of the list are broken. Just a glitch that is easily fixed. The aircraft.cfg is fine.

    I've already installed and flown these and -- as usual -- am very happy with the results of your hard work.

    Hi mate, That's what you get when you poach before it is all ready for download

    The links via counters was the last thing to be set up late last night - and the last few were stripped off when uploading - fixed that after the first test.

    Also - I hope you did not poach too early - as late as yesterday I was re-tweaking graphics for much of the contents of the zip files

    Regards mate.

    Guilty as charged I was about 24 hours ahead of your announcement. I've only tried about 5 of the liveries so the easiest route is just re-download the lot and plug 'em into the system. That should serve as proper punishment for poaching -- right?

    No Problems mate - always tweaking right up to the last minute - sometimes something I do on a recent repaint warrants me to then sweep back and add that feature to all of the previous repaints - fortunately because I work with layers it is simply a matter of stamping that layer to the others and then recompile and rezip and put on the server - one of the later sweeps was to sharpen up some engine and cowl details for all of them. Lots of stuff I do most would not notice but I feel should be included for the final release of them all.

    After I launch I then stop tinkering - most of the time - but some times something is required to be changed after publishing and then I hightlight that it is an "updated" flag.

    But fortunately the DC3's are pretty settled now - so hopefully there will be no additions or updates in the future for this girl - 26 repaints should be enough to meet most people's desires for this girl.

    "But fortunately the DC3's are pretty settled now - so hopefully there will be no additions or updates in the future for this girl - 26 repaints should be enough to meet most people's desires for this girl."

    Easy for you to say. I have a bit under a hundred liveries for the default DC3 and just installed #129 for Manfred's excellent C-47. Then there is the cool Just Flight DC3 series.

    I could go on but I need to get out to the back 40 acres and add yet another wing to my very crowded hanger. I was doing alright until some crazed developer put out a bunch of Jenny's the other day. That girl alone now has 94 liveries.

    So many planes -- so little time.

    That's incredible self abuse! The default DC-3 is no picnic to paint!

    Hi Gentlemen,

    Yes there is a lot of DC3's and liveries out there - when I said "pretty settled down" and that "26 should be enough" I mean that only for the Ford Project Team's perspective.

    Edward, I believe, has gathered several hundred DC3 liveries over the years not including our latest batch - our excursion into repainting the Default DC3 is only responsible for 26 of the new ones.

    As for the Jenny's - we at the Ford Project can only accept responsibility of around 60 of those

    Guilty of several hundred repaints of the Ford Tri-Motors and buckets of Vega5's and DH88 default aircraft repaints as well - sorry

    Still a small handfull of Vickers Vimy liveries also to be released soon.

    Again sorry for stealing your valuable time on these repaints - but can't say that we will not continue to generate more time bandits in the future.

    For Alky, yes - The Ford Project Team are self abusers - all of the Microsoft girls are "complex to deal with" to say the least.

    Regards and happy simming.
