Re: Urgent Forum Maintenance

Thanks for all your efforts. This site is an amazing resource. We’re lucky that enough volunteers are capable and willing to fix it and keep it going. That people complain about the time it takes is hard to believe.

Re: Sud Aviation/Aérospatiale Alouette II

Thanks John. Now installed with scenery and helicopters looking great. I had a problem which might be encountered by some FSX users. The version of Buckerburg that I am using has an exercise location using ETH2. The conflict with your ETH2 resulted in no AI at Frizlar. I removed ETH2 from Buckerburg...

Thanks for these John. I finally retired the venerable UKMIL Lynx from Middle Wallop (Lynx Conversion Flight).

Re: A few Retro Repaints

Just installed the CATCS Provosts at Shawbury. An unexpected addition to the retro scene. Can’t believe Shawbury now has these alongside 2FTS Gazelles and Wessex. Thanks!

Re: JYAI Westland Wessex

So many downloads I hardly knew where to start. Decided to start with 22 Sqdn at Brian Clarke’s Chivenor. They look amazing. Perfect companions for Derek’s Hawk repaints. Next up the Queen’s Flight at Benson and 2 FTS at Shawbury. Thanks to all involved!

Re: HS Andover

Brilliant work thank you John. 115 Squadron and the QF installed at Benson, 32 Squadron at Northolt. They look superb. On to Wildenrath and the RAE tomorrow. The late 80s retro scene improved yet again!

Tim.
Scenery looks great except for the tree problems already referred to. Could you please advise the parking codes used for the JPs (they are blank in the download). I have set up the four Chipmunks to use the grass strip EGXX. Had you anything else in mind for EGXX?

Re: AI at Alconbury FSX

Away from my pc at the moment so can’t check this. I wanted to install the JYAI A10 at Bentwaters & Woodbridge when repaints became available. This was in FSX and the AI failed to appear. After a bit of tinkering I think that reducing the wingspan fixed the problem. Was worth the effort. They lo...

Re: JYAI Gloster Meteors

Just downloaded the package and note from the manual that there’s a possibility of a 1980s version of Ahlhorn. I for one would like to express my interest as the location for Det 3 A-10s. The scenery as provided for the Meteors looks great. Really like the bilingual No Smoking warning. Was surprised...

Thanks to all involved with this. My UKMIL “Junglies” are now retired.
The Arctic pair look great alongside the Harriers at Bardufoss.

Re: Saab MFI-17

John. Away from my pc (an ancient thing running on Vista) at the moment so can’t check my frame rate. I’d guess it’s well below 30 so that might indeed be part of the problem. The config file attached above certainly fixes the issue in my set up and I’d be interested to find out if it works for anyo...

Re: Saab MFI-17

OK. That's the first time I've uploaded anything. Next time I'll try not to upload it twice! Hopefully it will work. Note that it gets the FS9 version to work in my FSX setup.

I mentioned this FSX problem to Jon a while back. Didn’t put it in the forum as I’m hoping to set up retro flight plans for upload. Intended to raise it then.

Re: Saab MFI-17

Sorry John. I meant the general section and everything below there. In other words I replaced the whole of the config file ( except for the [Fltsim.xx] section) with the contents from the Bulldog. The Saab then performs perfectly in FSX. Not ideal probably but for me a pragmatic temporary fix. John D.

Re: Fairford RIAT AI

AIFP is a great tool and pretty straightforward to use - worth giving it a try. I have AI set up for Fairford as a SAC deployment base (B-52s with KC-10 support). Please get back if you have a problem with AIFP. You really can set up traffic to match you own imagination- in my case late Cold War!

Re: RAF Leuchars for fsx

UkMil version is excellent. Well defined parking so easy to set up traffic for whatever era you fancy. Don’t know what’s happened to UkMil - seems to no longer exist. Anyone know what’s happened?

Just a quick thank you to Brian Clarke for this scenery. Works just fine in FSX. Now need to get busy with AIFP to add a bit more traffic!
