How To Create Your Own MSFS 2020 Liveries


How To Create Your Own MSFS 2020 Liveries

by vLegion_


Past versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator have had vast numbers of freeware repaints created for them, and there's now no reason to think that MSFS 2020 will be any different. However, the techniques for creating liveries/skins are new and will have to be learned by those interested.


vLegion_ has created several videos to help you get started and has allowed us to present them here. Hopefully this will get your creativity going. Please remember to share your repaints with us though the FlightSim.Com file library.

MSFS Livery Tutorial

Hi guys, I have made a video on how to create your own liveries in MSFS 2020.
