Here's the current list of high definition liveries at this stage in the beta & release candidate process: (this is not final, more will continue to be done up to and past the release) With one and a half exceptions, we've decided to leave the fictional liveries to the repaint community this time. The paintkit will be available on release day. As we've mentioned in other threads, the NGX marks the birth of the PMDG Livery Manager, a new application that allows for extremely easy management of liveries - simply download the ones you want to a folder and the livery manager will install them all with just a few clicks - no more installers, tons of entries in the uninstall list for liveries and so on. We have definitely listened to you guys on this front, we know the old system had flaws and we've fixed it. The PMDG Livery Manager will be made compatible with all the older PMDG products after the NGX release and will manage liveries for the whole product line. Here's what it looks like: Absolute simplicity - it does one thing and does it very well! A utility is included with the paintkit that turns a livery and its cockpit/model options inis into our .ptp (PMDG Texture Pack) file format. All liveries now install in exactly the same way, even community made ones. No more fumbling around with the aircraft.cfg and counting fltsim.xx sections! Anyway, here's the list: 800:Air AlgiereAir EuropaMALEV (EU Presidency)MALEV (oneworld)PMDG HouseSAS Scandiavian Airlines (Saja Viking) 800WL:airberlinAir JamaicaAlaska AirlinesAlaska Airlines (alaskaair.com Blue)American AirlinesAustrian (Star Alliance)British Airways (fictional)Carribean AirlinesChina AirlinesCopa AirlinesDelta Air LinesGOL Transportes AèreosJapan AirlinesKLMKulula (Flying 101)Lauda AirMangoNorwegian Air ShuttlePegasus AirlinesPMDG HouseQantas (New Livery)Qantas (Old Livery)RyanairS7 Siberian AirlinesSAS Scandinavian Airlines (Freja Viking)South African AirwaysSouthwest Airlines (they've ordered 800s, so not completely fictional)Sun CountrySun Country (Leased from Transavia)TransaviaTUIflyTurkish AirlinesUnited Airlines (Merger)VARIGVirgin AustraliaVirgin BlueWestJetWestJet (Careantee) 900:Korean AirPMDG House 900WL:Alaska AirlinesContinental AirlinesKLMPMDG HouseUnited Airlines (Merger) As I said, more are on the way, this is not complete as of yet. Feel free to make requests for additional 800/900 liveries in this thread. This isn't a guarantee that we'll do them, but we are interested in what you'd like to see. UPDATE 8/3 release-eve additions: 800WL:Alaska Airlines (Lei)Austrian AirlinesContinental AirlinesEl Al Israel AirlinesGOL Transportes Aèreos (SFP equipped)SpiceJet Pete's hoping to have the following liveries finished during the day tomorrow, though they may follow the release slightly: 800WL:Alaska Airlines (Starliner '75)Alaska Airlines (Spirit of Seattle/aka Boeing Dreamliner)Boeing HouseBoeing Green Chromate (pre painting) This thread has some great ideas for future work - thanks for all the suggestions!This post has been promoted to an article

Sweet! This has been the one thing PMDG has been missing and finally its here!

Thanks for the list Ryan, extremely comprehensive...:Applause:If I may, us simmers in India are not represented. Either Jet Airways, AI express or Spice Jet would be very welcome. I understand that this is not the complete list. If any of these are not on your complete list, then could you please add one of them at least ? Also, how come no PMDG livery in the list Cheers,Dinshaw Parakh

Wow that is going to save a ton of time and reduce errors during painting, great stuff :Applause:Oh and impressive list of airlines indeed.

Gents-Something Ryan forgot to say:There are so many actual NG operators out there that we simply don't need to invest time in fictional liveries.That being said: We chose to do the BA livery as a tribute to all the fine folks at British Airways Virtual, because they are a great bunch of blokes who have always been very kind to us, they are as concerned about the theft of our products as we are, and they are respectful and intellectually curious when it comes to seeking help/solutions to problems.This unfortunately cannot always be said... (You should see some of the really whacko stuff we get from some poorly run VAs... Threats... Insults... it's insane!)But anyway- this was not meant to diminish the importance of any other VA- it is simply that our beta team has a few BAV members- as does the PMDG team- and we have had great experiences with them in the past.

lol sorry mate...my should've been ;) (these bloody emoticons).I'm going to have my hands full with QF and VA/VB flights that I won't get to Air Pac for a while...by then I'm assuming someone'll paint one.
Please don't act disappointed if your favorite livery isn't in the list - as I said, we are not finished and you can make requests in this thread.
