How to install TMP pack properly?

Post by Ruskiwaffle1991 » Sat May 01, 2021 3:08 am

While I was searching through the addon database, I found Tank's mod pack which has some pretty sexy warbirds and things so I went to DL it. I did what everyone does, place aircraft(name).lst in aircraft blah blah blah but it doesn't work. Someone generous enough to help?
Edit: There is an HTML file in the folder which is a download manual but the instructions are unclear, maybe because google translate sucks I guess?

Um, anyone?

Open the .cab with 7Zip. Windows file manager doesn't read the folder structure properly

Do I have to extract with 7zip? Doesn't work. Error messages showing up on YS startup.

Open the .cab with 7Zip. Open the Tank'sModPack folder. Drag the contents into your YS folder
There are no .lst errors
