#Fictional Exclusive Drag and Drop
Update... I have finally managed to get the tail numbers to play ball - so... now in 9 colours with tail numbers that can be read!!! (Thanks for the push KodiacJac)

Completing the X series for the Beechcraft range of planes the Bonanza gets all 9 colours.

The ugly bonnet paint is gone, while the elegent stripes remain and a resiliant carbon belly and wings. I have tested a new 'layered' approach to painting this time, which has allowed a much better control of the colour and also helps not to colour in things that don't require it! Update: in v2.1 the edges have been cleared up... it seems I can still paint/not paint in the right areas!

And now the Bonanza X Series includes a brand new 'Burnt Orange' colour scheme! Yes... not copying a colour from Aston Martin's pallete in any way...

As always with the packs, unzip the file to remove the individual colour folders before dragging them into your community folder. Shout out to 'Bony' who asked if I would do the Bonanza next.

All feedback and comments welcome.

    Yeah mate, love this set of liveries for Bonanza and Baron - but it does somehow give issues on the Garmin.

    Not all of them. I did a test. For instance, the blue one gives normal info on Garmin, but RedX gives channels that are inactive or not existing at all.

    Edit: but I can see how this is not an issue on your side :) anyway, great pack

    I know what has done it - I managed to work out how to edit the colour of the tail number by bringing in the panel files... However, it seems this has more impact than I expected.

    I will be fixing it as soon as I can sit down with the files. I will let you know when it is done (though if you have the older files - pre tail change - then it should be fine)

    When trying to fly with these I can't get into the flight without stuttering.

    They are fine in the hangar, but not in a flight.

    I'm getting stuttering issues when I try to use these mods. They worked a few days ago. I have removed all the mods from my community folder and tracked the issue down to these liveries. What's strange is these liveries were working yesterday at 5pm CST.

    When I get the plane all set up and ready to fly - I click the Fly button. Then as it starts to load, the screen starts to stutter and jerk. After about 2 minutes I can finally get to the Ready to Fly. I click on Ready to Fly and then we continue the stuttering. About 10 minutes later I'm finally on the Tarmac, but can't fly like this. If I removed these mods, all is fine.
    I'm using MSFS 1.12.13.0. It seems it was working until Windows did an update about 2 days ago and then it quit working. I have removed them for the time being until I see if a newer version is on the horizon.

    There was a new update out today - I really hope Asobo hasn't broken another thing!

    I will update and test everything... again... though it is possible that the update needs to settle down.

    Are you able to pinpoint a specific colour or is it across the range (though there is really nothing that I can think of that would cause it)

    Hi again - OK that was a small update... I have tried 4 (red, cream, blue and green) and none of them are flickering or causing any sort of delay.

    However.. I have had a similar problem before - you have probably already thought of this but... make sure your drivers and graphics card software is up to date - windows updates can cause issues (as can MSFS updates).

    Failing that, it might be worth asking at the forum to see if anyone else is having similar problems.

    Sorry to not be more help

    Is anyone else having issues with these? I love the orange but when I select it I lose engine indications. I don't have fuel flow, EGT, Vacuum or fuel quantities.

    Hi, thanks for the feedback. I will check but these are purely cosmeting liveries - the insides are left alone. I often find that removing them from the community folder and then reinstalling helps with things... sometimes...

    Thank you for checking.
    I did just that. I even emptied out the whole content of the community folder and out only this in there. The standard plane show the data but the orange(I didn't try others) does not. If I go back to the standard it shows the data again.

    Hi,

    I have just test flown the OrangeX and I did get an engine cut out - also the prop wasnt spinning properly. Having said that, I just tried both the default livery and the other Asobo 'flight club' livery in the Bonanza and got the same from default and no problems with the flight club.

    The game did this a while ago - though I have to say that I haven't touched either the propeller animations or the controls.

    Sorry to not be more positive. I can only fix things wrong with the colour/livery.

    Hi there - if you mean did it cut out - yes... several times. Asobo have done something to the fuel mixture.. keep an eye on the red lever as it keeps dropping to cut off.

    I have had this with other aircraft too - and prior to the last update if I paused the game the propellor rotation lever dropped to zero too.

    Just flew your X Series Black Beauty v2.2 Bonanza tonight, and it is awesome! Thanks for the registration numbers, Smeary!

    You are welcome... though the only one so far I have been unable to do is... naturally... the SR22 (which was the one you wanted). The files are missing an xml document that seems to be necessary... I cannot find it in the official or the template folders so have to assume Asobo forgot to add it.

    I LOVE this airplane but, we gotta' get it flying right. It's not even close with the written settings as it is now. Even the turbo mod gives it a little more power at altitude but, the trim is way off, the flight characteristics are very questionable. The paint, Sir is awesome either way...!!! Thank you...!!!

    Just wanted to say nice liveries. Also the layers of your paint colors on your repaints do not quite cover the entire fuselage on the aircraft left side just above the wing root and at the base of the engine cowling. Other layers of colors can be seen in those areas. Just thought you should know. Can't wait for the update.

    Very nice update. Orange is my favorite color so the new livery is great. I believe a various color pack with with some chrome and/or metallic accents would be an excellent addition. Good work!

    Upgraded the rating to 5 stars.

    How about making color packs for Airbus 320, Boeing 747, and Boeing 787? Great work on this!

    Hi, thanks for the feedback.

    I think the small to medium sized planes are what got me into modifying the liveries... people aren't expecting 'real life' all the time - plus I started looking where there were less choices available. There are currently over 300 liveries for the Neo while 10 for the entire Diamond range (for example).

    I have been prepping some 'one offs' and wil definitely do an x series for the Longitude.... tell you what - pick one of the big 3 and I will put a test together to see if it works (or just gets me flack from those who demand 'real life')

    Thanks for replying back. I would love ALL of three, but I would pick Airbus 320 because it is the easiest plane of all and people would prefer that model than other commercial jet, so it is a win-win situation. If it doesn't work on Airbus 320, then just pick one of Boeing aircrafts - maybe 747. And thanks again for color packages. I'm now your fan!

    Ready with testing. It´s the same like all your other x series planes. For me it´s the burgundy. 90% of my flighttime I use the Bonanza. Now in your great paint. Thank you again!!!

    If I see the downloadhits in short time, I think a lot of simmers like it.
