    liveries location in DCS

    Days before, I installed Mi-8 and some liveries from ED user files.
    I did put many Huey Vietnam War liveries to Bazar/liveries/UH-1, and work. I can found them in mission editor and change.
    But after I put Mi-8 liveries to Bazar/liveries/Mi-8, I can not find them in mission editor?

    and even there are so many default liveries in Bazar/liveries/Mi-8, but only three liveries can be choosen in mission editor.

    Where is the location for MI-8 exchangable liveries ??
    Why Huey and Mi-8 livery locations are different?

    BTW. I am totally confused by DCS structure
    I did search in forum, try to understand where should I put different liveries and cockpit mods for different DCS aircraft, but I didn't find a thread answer my question.
    Please teach me

    You can chose what liveries can be used for each country.
    General 3D modeling thread and reference sites
    UK liveries for planes, ships and MODS.
    The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

      ^ Indeed. Some default liveries are visible in mission editor only when certain country is chosen. That applies to many custom ones as well. I'm sure it can be edited somehow, but I never investigated this issue closer.

      For example, while we're talking about Mi-8, if You want to fly it as US pilot, you will have only 3 default skins to choose from, If You want to fly it as Russian one, there will be many, many more.

            If the "F-86F Sabre" folder is not visible, add it yourself into bazar/liveries, some installs do not include it, you should then have some success.

              You can also put your liveries in the mods\aircraft\F-86\liveries\... map. Way more organised.
              Happy Flying!

                Is there any different results for exclusivly putting custom liveries into two different locations?
                or no difference?
                Thanks

                  Better still, put them in your saved games directory under liveries\Mi-8mt (or any other aircraft as long as you name the folder exactly as it is named in the Bazar\Liveries folder in the main installation.

                  Definitely the best location because it will keep the skins added entirely separate from the default ones.

                    Hello guys,

                    so if i´ve understood what have been explained on the forum, there is a way to keep the additional liveries by adding a folder in the "saved games"

                    So it will look like this: C:\Users\xxx\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods\aircraft\aircraft name\Liveries

                    This way i can´t see them once on the server.

                    Did i missed something?

                      Hello,

                      You got the path wrong, it should be like this:

                      For the name of the aircrafts, you can use mine as a guide:



                      For future queries, it would be best if you created a new thread rather than using a very old one, as other people that read the thread will be confused with the old information that is at the beginning of the thread.

                      Best regards

                            Are you sure that the specific livery you want to use, is allowed for the country that your aircraft belongs? For example, a luftwaffe livery doesn’t show up if the aircraft belongs to japan.

                            Each livery has a description.lua file ... look at it with notepad++ and check it’s country line.

                                I´ve read that if no "countries" line it should show up with all countries ?

                                Correct?

                                  Yes, that's correct .. usually a livery description.lua has this structure:



                                  If the "countries =" line is omited, then that livery is available for any country. I rarely do that, as I prefer the liveries to be filtered by the Mission Editor so that I only see those that make sense for the country I'm using.

                                  Double check the folder name at /Liveries ... the Hornet uses "FA-18C_hornet"

                                    My mistake the correct "writing" for the F18 is: FA-18C_hornet

                                    And not the : FA-18C

                                    So to make sure to have the correct writing, we should check in the "CoreMods" folder:
                                    xx:\DCS World OpenBeta\CoreMods\aircraft
