Hello! I have a question again. I want an Airbus A380 but there are many of them (payware and freeware). I would like to know which one I should get. It doesn't matter is it payware or freeware as long as it's good.
And if you also have problems choosing a good plane for you then send your question here!

I've already found one which is on this page. But I still have one question about that plane. Can you add custom liveries to it?

I think I know why. That plane is originally for FS9. Did you get the right livery for that plane? I looked up the Project Airbus page and there is A380 for FS9 (same plane as on this page but it's modified for FSX) so I'm not sure what do you have to do to get the liveries working properly. I'll try to do something to get liveries working and then tell here.

Best regards

So,there you have it. I was able to install a livery into ''our'' A380 and it works.

The way to do is this... First,search and download only the A380 texture you want to install. You can find a lot of them at Avsim. Put the texture folder into the PA A380 folder,open and edit aircraft .cfg file. Be sure to check that texture is compatible with your sim,in this case ,the FSX.

Cheers
