Piper PA-44 Seminole - Cleaner and less worn Cockpit (incl. darker Cockpit Panel)
After a particularly nasty landing attempt on my part today, my flight instructor condemned me to clean up the Seminole afterwards.
And I must admit it was badly in need of good scrubbing. Took me hours to see some improvement to all the stains and scuff marks on the seats and side panels. Went over the instruments too and even managed to get the carpet looking a little less filthy. Of course the plane's still 25 years old, so it won't ever look like new again. But have a look for yourselves :-)
This version also comes with the instument panel in a darker grey tone. If you prefer the normal cockpit panel color you can download it here:
After using the new textures for two weeks I got to the conclusion that I had overdone it the first time. So with this version 2.0 I reintroduced some of the wear and and made the interior a bit older again. In addition I also uploaded the same textures including a slightly darker cockpit panel:
made some changes to the seat upholstery and cockpit panel
Now in case you want to have a cleaner plane without hours of work just follow these instructions.
Carenado aircraft are enycrypted and therefore I haven't found a way to make the installation drag and drop into the Community folder like usual.
1. Locate the installation folder for the plane it should be in the "Official" folder looking like this:
2. navigate to the following folder "../SimObjects/Airplanes/carenado-aircraft-pa44-seminole/TEXTURE.BASE"
3. rename the following files:
4. copy the files provided in this package into the /TEXTURE.BASE folder
Please be aware: In case of an official update to the plane the changed files might be overwritten again, so you may have to reinstall them.
