In this guide for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Liveries, we’ll be showing you how you can begin installing these skins on your favorite planes, as well as pointing out some of the better Liveries that we’ve seen so far in MSFS 2020.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Liveries
These liveries for MS Flight Simulator don’t do anything besides just applying a paint job on your planes.
However, for those looking for an immersive experience, these MSFS liveries can make your plane look like one from the real world so that’s a plus.
How to install Mods for MSFS 2020 (Custom Liveries)
We’re going to have to locate the Community folder first, which can be found in the following place,
In your navigation bar on the top, type in %AppData%, and go into the Local folder, and afterward click on Packages.
This should bring you to C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Packages\
If you got the game from Microsoft’s Store, then the location should look something like this; C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Packages\ Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\
Now, most of the leg work’s done for us, and all we need to do is install our favorite mods.
Simply download the mods from Nexus Mods, or from MSFSaddons.org; there are a number of them available for free.
We have a few recommendations that you might like to use in order to spice up your flight experience in MSFS.
MSFS 2020’s Liveries
MSFS offers its users highly-accurate aircraft from the inside out.
The game not only gives you the option to select different variants of aircraft from within the game but also allows you to pick one of many community-made Liveries from a third-party website.
You can change the appearance of your aircraft however you like, by adding a unique identity to the 30 available air crafts.
If you feel like things have gotten too boring for you with the Liveries already installed, then you can head onto the community website to select out custom-made Liveries by the community.
