Does adding the line for visual damage (visual_damage=1) in FS9 only
work with the default planes, or will it work with all addon planes too?

them, not sure how to tell if it will work or not until you try it

The default aircraft have an additional texture file with a "_d" suffix,
such as "C172_d.bmp" in the texture folder.

It is these files that contain the damage visual. Thus, I would speculate
that if an add-on aircraft contained a texture file with a "_d" suffix and
the visual_damage value in the aircraft.cfg file were set to a 1, then
visual damage would be seen during a crash.

Does anyone know of a utility that would turn this on in all of
the aircraft.cfg files at once?

It will "work" only if the modeler included a "damage model," which MOST do
not!...
