Third party liveries
Feb 6th, 2023 at 8:45pm
 
Captains,
The 767 Captain III is our first product in 24 years which doesn't have any official third party liveries. Well, the world changes.

Yet some third party liveries are still available online, so we'd like to inform our customers of what to expect from the third party liveries:

1. Black areas on the fuselage.

2. Some of the third party liveries use a model hack which damages the exterior nose section and hits FPS like this: (click to enlarge)



3. Most of them are made from outdated P3D 4K liveries which gives you four times less detalization compared to official CS 8K liveries.

4. Some of them painted over official CS 8K liveries compressed dds files which gives you very questionable quality.

5. Most of the so called 8K free liveries are in fact a stretched older 4K which just wastes your PC resources providing zero visual improvement.

6. Most of them use the wrong engine type (PW for GE) and/or door layout.

7. Most of them have technical and factual errors (wrong colors, logos, missing items, layouts, reg numbers, antennas, winglets, you name it).

Good news is, there is a growing collection of high quality official CS livery packs for just 49 to 99 cents per livery.

Yes, we'll offer a wide variety of ultra-high resolution (true 8K) liveries for the 767 Captain III. Every livery will resemble each aircraft time period, engine, window, winglet and antenna configurations.

Well that's good, I'd love some retro Uniteds, and Hawaiian. And that's just PW powered.  Wink

Love your work, looking forward for more HD liveries. It would be nice to have HD liveries for the 400’s too. Question, it stated that cabin exists were all operational but only few work. Is that correct or an update is on the way? Also cockpit flood lights aren’t working too.

Can you make the historical liveries of BLUPANORAMA, NEOS, ALITALIA? They have flown the 767 for years and are very nice.
Thank you Cheesy

I was a big supporter and purchased almost all of your aircraft from FSX through P3D. The world hasn't changed that much. $10 for a 5-repaint pack?

We do not have such pricing. We sell 763 liveries for 49 to 99 cents per livery.

So is that going to be the permanent price? I made that statement because it says $9.99, as if it's on sale for $4.99.
