I do not, Lewis would have them.

@Lewis, did you save each one as a 32bit texture by chance??

None so far. He has the test model, single LOD, no further development on it but it wouldn't take too much.

Currently I'm trying to figure out what to do with this new laptop of mine (courtesy of my employer so not mine). It's got Win 10 on it, I was all set to put FSX on it and start transitioning to that platform until I started reading about the process to load FSX onto a Win 10 platform. I can't even get the install disc to run the installer correctly so far. So right now, all of the FS9 F-16 stuff is sitting on my old work laptop which I have to turn in sooner than later. That includes the F-16 Sufa files.

So the files are all safe and backed up, that's not the issue. The issue is I currently don't have a sim platform to compile them for. I have FSDS installed so even that's not the problem. Just no way to test anything.

Worst case I'll try putting FS9 on this new computer and see what happens but it's the year 2021 and it's time to move on from FS9.

FSX on Win 10 isn't hard.
It just comes to a point where the install seems to crash. It hasn't.
Took my PC about 30 mins of 'just sitting there' before it continued.

Sufa - As Mike said.
There was only a single LOD development model tested. When it next comes around I will only be finishing it for P3D.
We have tested converting P3D back to FSX and seem to have working method, alhtough it sometimes needs 'converted twice' to display properly.

That's good news for FS9 users.

For test, you can ask to some Beta testers (with some recommandations for the differents tests you want).

I'm your man for that ;-)

FS9 on Win10 is not a problem at all.
When I transitioned to Win10 about three years ago I simply copied the complete FS9 folder from my backup drive to the new PC.
It worked right from the start. Just a new FS9.cfg was created in a different location on Win10.
I also did a new installation of FS9 on Win10 from the discs to make a backup of this vanilla installation.
As far as I remember there were no problems either.

To make some of the third party programs work you might need a FS9 registry entry.
There is a separate tool available to do this in one click.

Certain programs needed some Dlls that were not included in the Win10 installation.
But these could be easily identified and found on the web.

There might be some threads here on the forum regarding the Win10 migration.

In that case I will definitely put FS9 on this machine. This laptop doesn't even have a CD-ROM drive, had to buy a USB one just to use for old software installs. The world is evolving for sure.

Hartwig I got your email. Not to worry my friend I will not abandon all of your hard work. We will get the FS9 versions out at some point.

My plan for now is to finalize the Block 40's and get those released with Lewis' textures for the 555th and 510th FS. Then finalize the Block 42's which are already done and just waiting to be released with textures from Mark Heimer for the Holloman training wing.

Then do block 25/30/32 which will be the 64th Aggressor squadron and one or two ANG units.

Then try to get back to the Sufa. Once the Sufa model is done that should just about complete the series unless we decide to do some of the F-16AM/BM models which shouldn't take long to do.

So no plans on quitting any time soon, just dealing with lots of other things in life these days.

Hartwig for the Polish Bk 52's we just need a few specific versions for Poland since these can use the drag chute version that Kevin created.

If you are finished with the single seat model textures I can start to finish those model files off as soon as I get a chance. Just need a few hours really. So keep on me and I'll get it done.

That said, this thing may have the specs to run P3Dv5 so might have to install that as well.

Hmmm.... tried installing P3Dv5 but the integrated graphics won't run the visuals at all. Might have to get my money back!
