They're only retro in the real world! They'll always be in style for most enthusiasts!

Great work as always John!

Ironic on the day this was released the RAF stood down 22 squadron at Anglesey prior to a US company taking over the SAR duties.

Apologies for dragging up a very old thread. Were the Sea King HC4s ever released. I have tried all the usual places and can't find them. Thanks.

I have the FS9 version of the HC4's, but I think you want FSX/P3D. I've checked the conversion of the Elvis/JYAI Sea Kings that Henk did, but the HC4 is not included. The answer then is probably No.

Hello John

Where did you find this FS9 HC4 version ?

I'm interested by this version. (FS9)

Thanks

Thanks for your reply John. You're right I was looking for an FSX version, but I couldn't find an FS9 version either. No worries.

It's an interesting pack (for my Cold War config of FS9).

Is this pack (with Sea Harrier) still available anywhere ?

The pack itself does not supply any extra Sea Harriers. It just uses ones that were released in the Sea Harrier from a couple of years earlier.
What it does do is supply a HC4 model plus paints.

I am only aware of John's Ark Royal Task Force package which includes Sea Harriers and Merlins but no Seakings.
Then there is the maiw_raf_sea_kings_new_models package which includes the HAR3 and HAR3_early models.
The Culdrose package includes the ASaC7_Landbased and HU5_Landbased Seaking models.

The package name is MAIW_RN_HC4_Sea_Kings_FS9_1.zip, now I don't know what the heading is in the Downloads Hangar as a simple 'Sea King HC4' did not reveal anything.

I definitely didn't dream this as there is a readme in the pack as well.

I'm completely stumped by this one after an hour searching, here and at Avsim. I concur with what Hartwig is saying and that there are no HC4's in the packages he mentions. I have the zip that Steve refers to that does have HC4's, but it doesn't have a manual (or flight plans) in it.

There are likely to be two reasons why I produced the Seaking HC4 - for Brian's RNAS Yeovilton and/or HMS Ocean, but I have drawn a blank on both.

Steve, could you possibly e-mail me the HC4 manual you have please? That might give me a clue.

Pdf sent, John.
I got the manual both from my copy of the pack and my SK HC4 folder (just something I tend to do). The pack also has SK and SH traffic files in it.

The size of the pack is 4.69 MB. Due to the differences that I have from what you have I have sent my version to you. Dated 28/8/15.

Fear not people we will get the official zip sorted out.

After 3 hours searching, I finally found the required files on my old PC under my "MAIW" collection, not the usual "JYAI" because the Sea Kings I made are an enhancement to the original MAIW ones.

The package is for FS9 only, called "AI Sea King HC4 and Sea Harrier Operations" and is one of the most difficult ones I have ever produced.

The zip is called: "MAIW_RN_HC4_Sea_Kings_FS9_1" and was produced in August 2015 and uploaded to Avsim. Unfortunately, I have not been unable to find it there.

It also requires 3 other packages:

Brian Clarkes and Daryl Paynes, "RNAS Yeovilton" which is at Avsim. That in turn requires a lot of third party libraries.

“jyai_sea_harriers_fs9_1.zip” which is at Flightsim.com.

and

My “MAIW HMS Ocean and Ark Royal.zip”, which was also uploaded to Avsim, but seems to have vanished too.

I'll have a look tomorrow at putting together a new upload to the MAIW Hangar that will need to include the HMS Ocean and Ark Royal elements.

We can find your HMS Ocean (only this carrier, no other stuff in the Zip) on flightsim.com

Thanks John

I didn't think my question would cause such a headache trying to track down the package. I remember that the Avsim site crashed a few years ago and some files were lost, but I can't recall when that was. Anyway, thanks for all your efforts.

Laurent, the problem with my ships packages is that there have been several iterations over time, especially for HMS Ocean. I have searched both Avsim and Flightsim.com using my name and looked at every package I've uploaded there, but I could not find the AI Sea King HC4 and Sea Harrier Operations one I uploaded. Steve must have been able to download his copy from there at some time in the past 5 and a half years. I can only think it must have sunk in a subsequent Avsim crash as suggested.

OK, I think I have the revised package sorted. Before I upload it to the MAIW Hangar would the people who have asked for the HC4's please download it from my cloud server and see if they can set up everything successfully. This is the link that I will leave active for the next few days:

https://btcloud.bt.com/web/app/share/invite/yfdrlqgH3Q

The HMS Ocean and Ark Royal package is now included in the zip, but users will still need the Yeovilton scenery from Avsim and my Sea Harriers from Flightsim.com.

FS9 only.

John
