Quoting jetblue01 (Reply 2): i dont know how to install textures.. how do you do it.... whenever i try to do it it says the file isnt supported
It is very simple . Place the new texture in your HJG MD80 folder . Copy the 'fltsim' text document of the new texture . Paste it into the text document portion of the plane (the exact term escpaes me ). It is usually at the bottom of the folder. Renumber it to follow any other textures the plane may have . They start with 'fltsim.0',then make it 'fltsim.1' and so on.

I'm not sure if you're referring to the texture folder or the code. It should let you paste the folder as long as you have unzipped the main folder after you download it. After you paste the folder, browse to the HJG MD-80 folder, and open the Aircraft cfg file in Notepad or another plain-text editor. Then, find the code that starts with [fltsim] (see below), scroll to the last occurrence of that code, and paste the texture code which should look similar to the following (with the indicated modifications). Replace the x that should be in YOUR code (don't copy my code- it won't work) with the next # in the sequence.
**Example texture code**
title= DELTA MD-88 - New
texture=*name of texture goes here; if the texture folder was named texture.dl, i would put "dl" here without quotes*

description="One should hardly be surprised that the world's most prolific manufacturer of commercial aircraft is also the producer of the world's most popular jetliner. The 737 became the best-selling commercial jetliner worldwide when orders for it hit 1,831 in June 1987 (surpassing Boeing's own 727 as the previous champ). However, it wasn't always that ways in the first few years of production, there were so few orders that Boeing considered canceling the program. They didn't, and the airplane has more than proven itself in over three decades of service."
