C172 JT-A Mod (SU6, v0.2, Oct 24)

Sorry I only tested this with my own 172 livery. I downloaded and installed the burgandy livery with the aircraft.cfg change I suggested and got the same problems as you with non functioning engine instruments.

The problem is that the livery creater has included a “model” folder in their livery. This was only required when Asobo stuffed up something and all liveries failed to load. Asobo corrected this a long time ago and the “model” folder is no longer required. As the JT-A also utilised a model folder, this caused a conflict and stuff stopped working. Repaints should only have a texture folder or risk compatibility with mods like the JT-A. Even updates made by Asobo to the default aircraft can also get tripped up by liveries not done correctly.

So you will need to delete the “model” folder if you want to use the burgandy livery with the JT-A. Unfortunately this also necessitates updating the layout.json file and further changes to the aircraft.cfg file. The livery creater also hard coded some of the aircraft details in the aircraft.cfg file, so it would always appear in MSFS with the a Cessna C172 Skyhawk G1000 description rather than the Cessna 172 JT-A description.

I have pasted copies or the updated aircraft.cfg and layout.json file at the bottom. Just cut and paste these into the existing files (overwriting everything), dlkete the mdoel folder and you should be good to go.

I know the author of these liveries so will drop them a note about changing their liveries so they can easily be adapted for the JT-A.

Hi @MrTommymxr and @BilingualHarp7

Any thoughts as to what I need to change to fix the spinner effect on that Burgundy livery you helped me with the last time please? I noted this oddity after installing the latest update above. Thanks for any hints or guidance!

oof. uh…

look into the texture folder of the mod itself and copy paste everything with “da40” in it.
Layout.json will need to be updated…

yeah… that’s not gonna work…

Still had the Burgundy livery installed and was able to replicate the problem. MSFS contains fallback folder instructions for the livery to use when it can’t find a texture it needs. This is located in the livery’s texture.cfg file and should point to the parent aircraft. In the Burgundy livery it still points to the default 172, which was fine when they both had the same prop, but not now the prop is different.

So edit the texture.cfg of the Burgundy livery and change the 1st line from fallback.1=..\..\Asobo_C172sp_AS1000\texture to fallback.1=..\..\C172TDI\texture. This will point the MSFS to the correct location for any textures it needs to source from the main aircraft for this livery.

Gave it a quick go and this solved the problem.

Awesome, thank you again!

Am getting a HIGH AMPS warning in red whenever I move the flaps. Not sure why I am getting this message, but seems to only have appeared with version 0.1.2.

Hello, could anybody help me convert a livery, to use it with this mod?
I could send the livery by email

Thanks

I had it (high amps) on 0.1.1. Not major, so I live with it. My issue with 0.1.2 is a gray disk where the prop should be…

please read and, yeah…

There are more than 3 people, for sure.

Hi,

Found that if I press Increase/Decrease Cockpit View Height. It is all the way out of the aircraft.

Well, I’m about to become #4! 2 quick questions- Does this replace the G1000 172 in the sim, or is it a separate aircraft? 2- (And based on some photos I saw above, I think this question has been answered)… This mod/STC does exist in the real world, yes?

I have to join the others in thanking you, even if I wasn’t interested in this mod (though I am). you’ve done a lot for the overall simmer community and I think that’s worthy of respect.

Yes. For a short period of time in the 2010’s.

If you still want a brand new turbo diesel 172 you have to buy one then send it to Continental for conversion.

I myself fly 2 172N CD-155 conversions.

last time i flew, it had 77hrs on the hobbs.

The mod is broken after SU5. Hope you can make 4 people happy again.
I cannot select the fuel in the new control introduced in SU5.
