Review livery without restarting MSFS

Hi there!

Is there any way to review changes done to a livery without restarting MSFS to see changes? It’s really time consuming the way I’m doing it right now.

You could set up an aircraft project by copying all of the original files into a PackageSources and adding your livery like you would if you were building an entire new plane. You would temporarily use a different name for this aircraft. By doing it this way, you can rebuild the project in dev mode and see the changes right away.

When you are happy with your livery, change it back into a livery package and do the final testing for compatibility.

The sim does a temporary override in dev mode when you open a project file while the normal asset loading process just happens once.
