This folder contains a repaint for the Grumman Goose for MSFS2020, available at sim-outhouse.com, in the colors of N323 (c/n 1191), one of the Gooses that flew with Catalina Air Lines between 1958 and 1970, before going to Antilles Air Boats. After being damaged during take-off in St.Vincent in 1978, it was broken up in 1985. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by the OZx team.

    Sorry for the question, but do we have to get the plane from somewhere first?
    There is no JK_N323 folder on this .zip...
    What am I missing?

    Can't update the layout.json because of a too long path name. Am I doing something wrong ? It happened to me with some other liveries mods as well. Thanks anyway for this cool aircraft and liveries.

    Maybe your community folder is hidden somewhere deep down?
    I have not had a single problem, and I used it 100's of times by now

    It is pretty deep, but that's the default Microsoft Store's location on C drive. I found some other guys with same problem, but not that many. Weird. I'll need to find a way to move the community folder somewhere else.

    Item 4 should be:
    with the included auto_json program, update the layout.json file in the 'ozx-aircraft-goose-hd' folder. To do so, double click the auto_json.exe file to open the program, click 'directory' and select the 'ozx-aircraft-goose-hd' directory, click 'OK', and click 'save as' and save as layout.json.

    How does this connect to the plane? It's not doing it for me. I'm putting it in the community file but no connection to the plane. I'm not finding any "atsimulations-aircraft-piaggio" folder

    Yes, just like fellow aviators, the installation process is a bit complicated ..... I followed the instructions but I can't find the 'atsimulations-aircraft-piaggio' .... it's the texture of the plane that I have expected for trips to Catalina Island .... I will have to uninstall it until you have an answer .... I'm in my 75s and too, ha-ha-ha! Thank you!

    I'm 74, install is too much work and confusing for me, too bad you don't have an auto install drop into the community folder like most guys, so I'll have to pass, thanks anyway

    Here is an attempt to help you but I cannot guarantee 100%
    Make sure you have possibility to redownload the plane if it fails or you have issues. In case something goes wrong just delete the old folder and place a new one.
    To install the skin... if all works OK... Is just like any other mod or skin:
    1. Download this archive... its name is the instructions basically.
    https://mega.nz/file/AN9VHaqS#RyV7ekv437fa1tEkzytcgmaHatsUd79uBhMFCn0Zf2U
    2. Open archive with zip 7zip etc. inside should be a folder named exactly as the folder of the plane you had downloaded from MFS Forums. This name: ozx-aircraft-goose-hd
    3. Put the folder in Community folder where you put liveries and planes etc. Windows should ask to overwrite! This is the sign that you have the same naming folder as default. Say yes to overwrite and that should be all.

    If it doesn't ask to overwrite, you must have a different name for the plane folder. So search for it in Community folder... maybe you don't have a lot of them and is not hard. And double click it to enter it. Then return to the opened archive... double click the folder of the plane named "ozx-aircraft-goose-hd". Now drag the folder "SimObjects" and the file "layout.json" from the archive in the Goose plane folder you have searched previously.
    Windows should ask permission to overwrite. Say yes.

    Again... it should work... this time.

    If you change the plane version later with an update... all bets are off... most probably the files will change and you will need to do it again in another way.

    I hope it helps.

    Tell me if it worked.

    P.S. If you need to follow the second way. Don't forget to delete the folder: ozx-aircraft-goose-hd if you dropped it inside the community folder and windows didn't asked to overwrite cause it might create troubles as it instructs the game about a plane that basically is not there.

    I really hope is not more complicated... I don't know how to explain in fewer words.

    drag and drop did not work for some obscure reason

    Tried now the instructions. It seems it contains info from the Piagio plane. I tried to change forlder with the Goose and the resulted json file is a bit strange.
    edit But it worked! /edit
    Could you please check the instructions again?
    Thanks!

    I did, they were indeed wrong
