  • 6. SSW TORNADO TEXTURES AND LIVERIES FILES
  • It is likely that liveries installer does not point to the correct sim version you have, we did not made installers for all versions.
  • They are huge files and can be shared among all sim versions (FSX,P3D 2/3/4) it is possible to install liveries correctly provided that the installer is pointed to the correct sim root folder  ie:
    1. <device>:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X
    2. <device>:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\
    3. <device>:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\
    4. <device>:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\
    5. carefully check that the suggested folder in the installer matches one of above paths.
