Hi Greg,

I am unable to find this traffic file: Traffic_MIL_FAF_E-3F_FSX.bgl

I was tracking the changes in your gotStatus_Europe_V5.0.txt. AIFP found that the E-3F were not being used.

Hi Greg,

I have noticed that since the 3.6 update the number of Waypoints in the Global library has reduced from 722 (in 3.4) to just 22.
Is this correct?

Regards
Brian

That was the case with 3.5 but should have been fixed with 3.6. Can you check again that the version.txt file in MAIW_GLOBAL says 3.6?

I'm still working hard on the next update for North America. Apart from John's Hercs, the update will include 643 (!) Texan II's that all need a place to park. This is taking a bit longer than I anticipated but it will be worth it. 8)

Thank you so much for the converted helicopters!!!!!!!

I have a lot of military packages that included the AH-64 and/or the CH-47 and I haven't been able to install them until now.

Is there any way to download only part of a region? For example: for Asia, can Israel and the Middle East be downloaded, without Japan, India, China, et al?

In Simple terms no.
To do that would need a rewrite of the Matrix app and would make life a lot more complicated in terms of downloads.
At the moment you download one package, a stream of two packages for NA. To do what you are asking would mean that each package be broken down into nations and a whole bunch streamed. Far more can go wrong.

At the moment you can select which bases you want active but the entire package is still downloaded just some of it will be inactive, So you will have wasted space.

The only way, currently, to do want you want is for you to download a region but not activate it.
Then copy which parts you want into other active folders, then delete the region through Matrix.

In the scripts folder there is a HC-144A.lua script. Is that for the MKAI C-295M? Because I don't see a CN-235 model. Also are there any effect files that go with the C-295 and the Grob Tutor? I looked through the effects folder and didn't see any, but I just want to make sure.

The CN-235 is part of the mentioned updates for Africa and North America.

Nothing that wasn't already present, except fx_nicksmokeC130.fx for the C-295M.

Are you sure? I just downloaded and installed both Africa and North America again and there is no CN-235.

Oh I see. I misunderstood. I thought that the plane was in Matrix now.
