Chet, if one of the other "dogs" has a pilot you prefer, then you can copy the pilot textures from that model to the the appropriate version of your choice.

Remember to backup the originals of course.

OK, then you are probably hoping that the model itself is moved? That is more or less a "no go" I'd guess, since that will involve the 3D model and I know that most model developers don't want all that extra work (which apparently it is).

Looking at the textures, there are two sets - pilot.dds and pilot4.dds The one is for a pilot with helmet and the other for a pilot without. Basically if the model you want to change has a helmet, then you can only use the "helmet pilot" textures and vice versa. Looking at the models, it looks like there are three pilot types - helmet, bare headed and wearing a base cap. You can't do much about the headgear - that's fixed as you see them. If you change textures, you'll only have joy when you change textures between pilots of the same type.

Hello guys!

Thank you for kind words, thanks for critics :)

In deed something was missing and I left Canadian flag (btw such registration can't exist in reality as users says so +one more bug :))

Chris is correct but not on 100% There are different models. Pilot.dds and Pilot4.dds it's for pilot and copilot (you can call for copilot in every model by ctrl+shift+4 from VC)

Okay so please unzip archive attached into your
F:\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\SibWings_Cessna_BirdDog_A\texture.NA42AF\
replacing existed files.

Have fun!

Andrey
