The 5 easy steps to install & play!
- Download the installer from AMI Trains under Classic Mods.
- If you have v1.0, use the configurator to uninstall it first, then delete the Aircraft Pack folder.
- Open The Installer & proceed as instructed. Install into your Locomotion Folder *)
- Select your preferred setting from the configurator that opens
- Start up Locomotion and select one of the scenarios in the "Beginner" tab.
*) The Installer itself will NOT replace any files, it will simply extract them into a different folder and open a configurator program which will create back-ups of every file you are replaceing. It will also ask you which of the different reliability settings you wish to use, as well as being the uninstaller & back-up restorer.
The best way to have good colours when compared with the default aircraft is to have the Primary Company Colour as the same colour as your Aircraft Secondary Colour. The Aircraft Primary Colour should be white (Example)
The Aircraft pack consists of 4 different parts: New Aircraft, New Airports, New Scenarios & Edited Stuff.
There are 52 aircraft in all, 2 heli, 18 prop & 32 jet. More are in the works though The greatest problem with them is that I can't make them fully company coloured. But as most airline liveries are white with the logo in the fin, it shouldn't be a big problem.

These are mostl made by Steve, All Hail Steve! If you are unfimiliar with his great Airport Pack, I'll give some info. It includes a new Heliport, a new Airport & redone holding patterns for every airport. I have included these & changed the graphics to get Large & International Airports available from 1917. Yes, there were large Airports (called Aerodromes at the time) which handled quite a lot of aircraft, although the avarage amount of passengers per flight was closer to 5 than 200 what it is now. I'll still have to fix the old airports' graphics to fit, but they work now. Oh yeah: All Hail Steve
I have included 4 pre-made scenarios so that you can start playing from 4 different eras from the history air transport, all having a few new aircraft which have just appeared. I plan on making more & better made scenarios, but they will have one feature: You can only build aircraft, while the AI can do everything else. You can make your own scenarios (or include the Aircraft Pack) by seeing the FAQ
I have made a calculator to calculate better Purchase & Running costs for the aircraft. This means that I have replaced all of the default ones (and copy-pasted many new ones using old graphics: C-47, 737 & 747 families, etc) with the new stats. I have also renamed them & added a (S), (L), or (H) in the end. These mean that they are either (S)mall, (L)arge or (H)elicopters. The Airports also have these signs, making the choice of airport to plane, or vice versa, easier.
Q: What do I download?
A: ... First sentence. Read it!
Q: How do I open the .rar?
A: Download WinRAR. Works like winzip but knows manymanymany more file extensions. And .rar makes files up to 50% smaller than .zip's
Q: When I download I don't get 11megs but something smaller!
A: Are you using Internet Explorer without any download helping software? There's the problem. IE's downloader is a really crappy one and many times loses the connection to the server and says that the file is complete although it isn't. There are three options:
1) Re-download the file. This time hope that IE doesn't mess up the download again.
2) Choose a different mirror. This time hope that IE doesn't mess up the download again.
3) Get a better browser. There are loads of IE replacements out there, the most common ones being Netscape, Firefox & Opera. Google for any of them and install.
Q: The .exe is corrupt/I get errors while trying to run it!
A: Check the answer to the question above.
Q: How do I play this?
A: Run the Installer & follow the orders. Notice: It won't replace anything!
Q: I can't build any new aircraft!
A: Start one of the custom made scenarios from the 'Beginner' tab. Or edit the existing ones, it's not hard at all.
Q: How can I play other scenarios with the new aircraft?
A: https://koti.mbnet.fi/peksoft/lomo/help/ ... index.html
Q: How can I add these into my savegame?
A: https://koti.mbnet.fi/peksoft/lomo/help/ ... index.html
Q: Locomotion crashes while Loading/Checking New Files!
A: That shouldn't happen. Open the configurator & uninstall, then try again. If Loco still won't run, re-install it. If it does run, inform me about it. Unfortunately Loco doesn't give any error messages so it might take awhile...
Q: There is something wrong/I don't like this thing, it's not correct!
A: Please post about it at this thread, I'll answer you asap. If you've not registered at TT-Forums, you can view my IM names/email address below.
