    F14-b livery folder

    Hi,


    I'm trying to install my first 14 livery into C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Liveries\f-14b but whatever folder I use the livery is not available in DCS (and the country is correct of course, double checked).
    What folder name should I use?


    Kind regards,


    Marcel

    Wrong directory. This one works for sure: \DCS World OpenBeta\CoreMods\aircraft\F14\Liveries\f-14b

      Yes, know that one works, but I prefer to use the Saved Games folder not to mess up my install, I do the same for my other modules. Is that not (yet) possible for the F14?

        What I am using (although not exactly what you asked for, it does keep liveries out of the main game folder):


        I have an Entry.lua file in my saved games folder under Mods\aircraft\Liveries Import. I don't remember whether I had to create this file or whether it already existed and I edited it:





        The contents of Entry.lua:





        The line mount_vfs_liveries_path points to any location on your PC to store liveries. On my PC at that location:





        Note that all custom liveries live here, not just for the tomcat. I don't know if there is as way to do a plane specific folder or not.

              C:\Users\name\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\f-14b works for me as well.

              I would recommend downloading/installing a livery from the DCS User Files to see it that works for you.

                This should work for everyone. If it is not working for you do a repair because something in your game install is not right and it's probably causing other problems for you as well.

                  Thanks, indeed f-14b does work. Turns out the livery I used was probably just incorrect, downloaded another one and that one did work.


                  Thanks for your help,
