FSX not recognizing airplanes


Recommended Posts

...showing up grey with an X in front of them. What to do?


That happens when the texture folder for that variation does not have a thumbnail.jpg.


If you have Win7 or Win8 you have a built in program called the Snipping Tool.


Load one of the planes up in FSX and get a nice view of it with the sim paused.


Then open the Snipping Tool and click on arrow next to New.


Make sure Rectangular Snip is selected.


Then draw a rectangle around the plane and save the Snip to the texture folder with the file name thumbnail.


You will have to do this for every entry that has the generic thumbnail showing.
