It's very easy. Just make sure there's a subfolder in the target aircraft directory, for example "texture.singapore"

Then go into your aircraft.cfg for that plane and add an entry:


Make sure the name of your texture subfolder is shown as above, and your new plane should show up fine.

The easiest way to make sure the fltsim section isn't missing something vital, is copying a previously existing one and then changing the required details. Most of the sections are fairly obvious and there are only 3 sections that can "break" it:

sim= has to match the .air file in the aircraft folder you're installing to (no .air file needed at the end)
model= has to match a valid model folder (leave it blank if there's only a single model folder)
texture= has to match a valid texture folder.

Everything else can be customized to your own wish.
