I've a question. Why do all tankers use REACH callsign and not QUID. Is it something new?

It's the package creator's choice and usually comes down to time. Making them all use "Quid" wouldn't necessarily be correct either. So it's just easier sometimes to use the generic "Reach" callsign and let you guys decide on your own if you want to change the VP mod and callsign. It's one of the easiest changes to make if you want.

The "Quid" callsign came with the first version I believe and I've attached it here for anyone that needs it.

A side effect of propeller animation is that quite often at full power, or at other power settings during flight, the prop blades appear stationary.
What that command does is alter the speed of the prop rotation so that, for the most part, the prop still appears to move.

Each prop aircraft can be different, so the exact parm can't be transferred automatically to ALL prop aircraft, you may need to alter the parm to get the effect that you are after. Normally this is done by the modeller these days, but early models don't have this so trial and error is needed here.

To answer your specific question you can apply the same parm to all your C-130s. Unfortunately it has to be done individually.

Tony as I recall:

Traffic file updated to remove/replace some of those smaller airfields that were being used as destinations for the KC-135s.

Prop animation ratio for the C-130s was added with a value of -0.12 to be standard with past releases.

Mip maps were applied to some of the textures I believe that were lacking them.

I have just deleted Mildenhall V2 and installed the latest version of Mildenhall v2.

I decided to run a cursory check on my latest installation primarily to ensure that all the aircraft had arrived safely!

All the C-130s were available very early one Sunday morning but I could only find eight of the 19 KC-135 acft.

It may be that the 11 other refuellers were out and about the President's business but since the traffic file has been altered in the latest version can a moderator please tell me if the following tail numbers are away from Mildenhall just after dawn on Sundays?

Tail numbers - in textures but not seen at Mildenhall base.

00342, 71488.

71493,80016,80100,91492,00353,10304,23499,23551,23565,414830.

Surely not lost and gone forever!

Hi Rich

There is no way that the Mildenhall package could have deleted the Valley Hawks.

Install the Valley Hawks package again.

Search your FS9 folders for EGOV.

Reinstalling often leads to missing files. Usually not installed again. Our memories can play terrible tricks on us.

Regards

John

Hi Rich

Your problem arose when you read the UK hawks 2 readme.

It instructed you, incorrectly, to delete files containing EGOV.

Regards

John

Just to be sure that we understand the issue, then maybe we can move this to the correct place, do the Hawks disappear, does part of the scenery disappear or the entire base disappear? Is it a combination?

Hi Rich

Do you have RAF Valley from Airfield Construction Group installed?

If you do, then you need to remove all files with EGOV in the name from folder 'FS9\Addon scenery\Scenery'.

Rich

Do you have the file "MAIW_AF2_EGOV_DEFAULT_GL.bgl" in the FS9\Addon Scenery\Scenery folder?

The default EGOV has no parking spots.

I have found with some AI flight plans if there are no parking spots on one airport required for the day then no aircraft show up, even at other airports.

MAIW_AF2_EGOV_DEFAULT_GL.bgl does not change much to the scenery but it has parking spots and an accurate layout.

John

This should possibly go into a new thread.
