Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

I did the 'loop myself last night with a wingman in tow. Flying it in the CJ4 is a little challenging, really looking forward to a worthy fast jet to do it 'properly' :)

Re: Saab MFI-17

That said, the older version that flew for example in Biafra were Malmo MFI-9's, really quite different, but if there are good references for a true armed MFI-17 or Mushshak, that might be a possibility. Well that made me dig through some books up in the loft... My memory must have faded some over ...

Re: Saab MFI-17

Now that is released..... any plans for some other variants? Like the older model, armed, and flying in Africa perchance ;-)

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

Well... so far I am a fan... I've flown a few short flights around random places and I am pretty impressed. I've got FSUIPC7 Beta running, and talking to my random apps. I've 'played' with some of the SDK tools, and been reading a lot. I am looking forward to getting some of my models into the sim t...

Re: Frame rates

Also, and interesting note on framerate in FS9... when we use our clever 'timer' code in XML animation it appears to be tied to the framerate, so an animation triggers in half the time at 60FPS as it does at 30FPS.... It seems that the timer 'ticks' at the same rate as the screen-draw frames. Intere...

Re: A brand new MS Flight Simulator is coming...

Well.... I've taken the plunge and pre-ordered FS2020 (the basic no-frills model) through Steam. Bold step up from FS9 I know, and I've gone the Steam route because I am familiar with the process ;-) Looking forward to figuring out what does and doesn't work in terms of scenery and AI. Fingers cross...

Re: FS9 Westland Wasp HAS.1

Modelling of HMNZS Monowai is now complete (thanks to some advice on the 'Planning your projects' thread), next up is placement scenery and flightplans to make a companion package for my Wasp's. The package will have Monowai in a number (between 6 and 10) 'notable' locations where she operated durin...

Re: How do you plan your projects?

Right, so back to the original topic ;-) I am still dabbling in both scenery and ai aircraft, and can certainly see the timeframes involved in a comprehensive scenery project. My focus, at least for now, is on projects for my own interest, and working in FS9 initially (for that is all I know...) but...

Re: How do you plan your projects?

Thanks guys :) I left my question quite broad, as I wasn't really sure what I was asking! I guess I am trying to figure out a workflow from idea through to completion, which is what I do at work for my design/modelling. The big 'take-away' (I sooo hate corporate speak) is coming up with a scope, the...

How do you plan your projects?

This is a question, or discussion starter really, for both the established and beginning developers: I am most of the way through a modelling project, and every time I think I am done I find something else to add. So my questions are; - How do you go about planning a project. And do you define your ...

Re: FS9 Westland Wasp HAS.1

The rabbit hole has become something of an interesting journey! As I said earlier; I wanted to model some ships for my Wasps to operate from, and HMNZS Monowai, an oceanographic survey vessel was my first subject... http://ta4ksim.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Monowai_New.jpg Tonight I had a cool m...

Re: Most wanted AI poll

As Sean said of his Wasp, I can't imagine my subject being a popular one; if he reckons seven people in the world are interested in his Wasp, I reckon no more than six for my MFI-17. However, if anyone is desperate for such a thing, I will get to LOD's at some point, or PM me for a beta "as is". Jo...

Re: FS9 Westland Wasp HAS.1

Small update has just been sent to the hangar. It fixes the side numbers on the right side being reversed....

Re: FS9 Westland Wasp HAS.1

This was the Helo on my first ship in the RN - HMS Berwick a Rothesay class frigate. Great to see it modelled even if its only in FS9. Thankfully I was never asked to fly in one of them as they had an annoying habit of going swimming when you least wanted them to. We had a couple of Rothesay's down...

Re: FS9 Westland Wasp HAS.1

Best have a look at the Wasp before you ask for a Scout!

Maybe I’ll do a v2 with an interior.... and removable doors for aboard ops (because of the aforementioned habit of going swimming)...

Thanks John, Yep, this was the original test-bed for the lift animation I sent you all those years ago...
