#Fictional Exclusive Drag and Drop
[edit: fixed so the liveries sit in the right part of the listings... pls check version history above]

An so it comes to the Cessna range of small aircraft... and I have to admit, these are a pain to paint properly (i.e. not cover in paint and think.. sod it:-)

With the same classy colours of Jet Black, Wine Burgundy, British Racing Green, Rosso Red, Rich Cream, Royal Blue, Velvet Purple and (naturally) Banana Yellow - coupled with carbon wings and extensions... the X series of liveries gives you a choice of colours without having to slap a name on your planes. Well, a small golden 'x'... but you have to pardon Smeary for a signature eh.

I hope you enjoy these. They are already available for 9 other aircraft in MSFS2020 - are all exclusive to FlightSim...

As ever, unzip the main folder to extract the colour folders from within before dragging these into your community folder. For clarity, you will find 8 folders inside (for each colour) called 'Asobo_208B-XXXXX'

All comments and feedback always welcome. o7

  • Version 2.0 October 31, 2020

    Now v1.10.7.0 compliant

  • Version 1.2 October 27, 2020

    Ok... Really sorry about this carrying on - hopefully the livery is all good to use now: small change whereby I have discovered an error in the airline which is now corrected. Thanks to Fungaming44 for spotting this.

  • Version 1.1 October 26, 2020

    - Updated the file names and cfg files (lots of mistakes) - the display name should now match and be correct for all the colours.
    - Problem reported (thanks mike83fs for letting me know) that the liveries all appeared before the default livery. After a lot of head scratching the answer turned out to be to ask someone who knew the answer... so thanks to Clink123 for that!

    **As the file names have changed you should delete the old version as you may end up with 2 versions of the liveries. If you need any help, please shout

    I love these colour collections and fly them all the time on my aircraft. They even have their own separate folder so they are easy to find using MSFS addons linker. Except for the Cessna Caravan, I think your version in the Mega Pack is better and wondered if you were planning to update the Caravan colours here. (Unless its all in my head).

      Hi, thanks for the feedback. Do you mean the naming convention or the livery? The livery is the same... but I had a pain with this livery sitting before the default livery.

      I will have a look 😊

      [Update March 18] Apologies. Did more checking and realized its only the thumbnails for the liveries in the FlightSim collection which show a thin goldish stripe. The Actual liveries on the plane while flying are the same as the Mega Pack. Should have realized that sooner.

    Hi, Rob here from the Mega pack submissions team. Just letting you know your livery you submitted has been updated and fix to comply with the new QC on the next release. You can check the edits on the submission form here. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/158taDXA5gT9Xs_wxye8d3pOxRgg8gp4pASFUlfmtN6Y/edit#gid=2118346148 Thanks

      Thanks Rob - geting the cfg's right has been a bit self taught so if there is something that needs doing across lots of liveries just shout and I can sort it. All the best

      No worries! I believe they were all good. Your Pack will be included in the next release 😀

      Thanks. Am working at getting a bit better with the cfg's!!

    Can't get these to work. Every time I try putting them into the community folder, keep getting error message "Destination Path Is Too Long" and saying the model and texture file names are too long.

      Hi... I think (??) I know where you are going wrong... you basically have two choices. Either unzip the main folder outside of the 'community' folder (I think the one before it is called packages) *or* try unzipping the folder directly into the community folder. The other time this problem occurs is if you already have the files in your community folder (in this case delete the ones in the community folder before trying again)

      The community folder seems to be encrypted and is really fussy. Let me know how you get on

      Unzipping the the folder directly into the community folder did the trick, thanks! Every thing looks great!

      No problem - you are most welcome

    Nice, any chance of these being made for the A320neo ?

    Hey i have the problem with a different livery that also gets before the default can you share how to you changed it so it doesnt ??? Btw. you still have these Caravans marked as Airliners
    • SmearyGrain
      6 month(s) ago
      I will take another look at the airliner thing (though, in reality - I think they are mainly passenger/freight in real life. Ha ha... not a sufficient excuse not to sort though eh!

      As for the names - well, I had to ask myself: its all in the folder names. It seems MSFS looks at the subfolder before the TEXTURE folder (in this case 'ASOBO_208B_GRAND_CARAVAN_EX_XXXX' - which should match the main folder name.. and should be a higher value than the 'default'. If you see what I mean. It does mean editing the layout.cfg too (to match) but after a couple of tries it worked. Hope that helps
    • Fungaming44

      Thanks will take a look to get that one fixed

    I love all your liveries but one minor thing, I always end up having to edit all the Aircraft.cfg files because you always set them as an Airline now its not a big deal for me I just edit those files and fixed but for others it might be not so easy. It's just weird if you dont know and you start flying and your called as a fake airline. But beautifull liveries they are that is a fact.
    • SmearyGrain
      6 month(s) ago
      Aaaah, OK - will make an edit to the files then (I am having to update the display names on some of them anyway).

      To be honest, every day is a school day - especially in terms of editing the .cfg files. I guess editing them to "" would sort it out...
    • Fungaming44
      6 month(s) ago
      Yup editing it to "" will fix that, Great work though they look awesome again.
    • SmearyGrain

      My pleasure. There aren't that many left to do😊

      I am also working on developing a 'virtual airline', with several packs of aircraft liveries for it.
