Re: JYAI P-8A

The package is a comprehensive Typhoon package. The P8-A's are a bonus. I won't be re-releasing the package when most people know how to connect 4 P8 parking spots. As Steve says, the amended AFCAD is available in this thread.

Re: Spangdahlem A-10's

Well done Edwin for sticking with it and getting there. Just a quick question though - are the USAF roundels so low viz, you can't see them?

Re: JYAI Tornado repaint request

Yes, load the FSX texture into DxtBmp and make sure you can see the alpha channel in the top right window. The texture and the alpha will be inverted for FSX.

Flip the image and the alpha (top menu) so both are the right way up.

Save the image at Extended Bitmap, Dxt3.

Re: MAIW and Prepar3DV5 ?

Thanks Tim. It's a great pity that P3D needs to be made to look good with further add-ons. It also further complicates what we are designing for into yet more variations (P3D+Orbx for example). I'm happy to have both P3D versions active for testing and I'll carry on trying to tweak the graphics sett...

Re: MAIW and Prepar3DV5 ?

Are both your screen shots taken at the same time of day Tim? My four were taken with a date setting of 10:00 local on 14 July 2020.

The Orbx trees are really bright, but at least they have the red and white cabin on dry land.

Re: MAIW and Prepar3DV5 ?

I purchased P3Dv5.2 yesterday, primarily so that I can test my packages in that version, but also in the hope that the graphics would be better than in P3Dv.5 that I also have. I'm really pleased to say that my Typhoons that I tested in P3Dv5.2 all displayed fine, including the embedded lights and a...

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

I thought the same thing Pete, but I didn't see the FS9 F-16s when I tried them at Spangdahlem in FSX. I didn't spend much time on it and it might just need some simple tweaking. Edwin, I found it a simple task to run the P3D F-16 2 seater through MCX and save it as an FSX file. It appeared just fin...

Re: Eurofighter Typhoon

Hi patrouille and welcome to the forum. I don't have a building site near the P8 hangar in FS9: https://i.imgur.com/9tuM83u.jpg Is it possible that you also have another, but earlier, version of Lossimouth installed as well? Could that second scenery feature the building site for the P8 hangar, but ...

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

Do I have to pay again when upgrading from 4.5 to 5.2? I've just spent 10 minutes on the LM website but I'm none the wiser.

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

So, having re-read the posts in your link Greg, three issues were flagged - prop discs against the sky - then fixed by LM and afterburners not displaying correctly. Since the test of the latter was in my F-15E that used an aircraft.cfg light source rather than an embedded effect, that was to be expe...

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

Tagging the models with the intended sim version wouldn't have helped in this case Steve, because the fundamental problem had not been recognised - that the supplied P3D models were not compatible with FSX.

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

No, you said FSX models can be used in early versions of P3D,which implies not in the later versions. That got me thinking again. I've been assuming that my FSX native models do work in all versions of P3D. I know they work in V4 but I don't have V5 so I have to rely on users telling me if there are...

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

Not quite Steve. FSX models made with the FSX SDK and compiled in native code should work in all versions of P3D. Models compiled in P3D code won't generally work in FSX. I'm not sure if the models were tested in FSX before the package was released, but at the moment, it looks like it is offering so...

Re: Retro RAF Alconbury

I think you are still confused Preston. My TR-1A is not linked to by Greg and is not included in the Milviz package, as far as I am aware. In that case Milviz is a big red herring. My TR-1A is not a conversion either, it was designed specifically as an FSX/P3D model for use with Ian's retro RAF Alco...

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

I did finally get the F-16s to appear in P3Dv4, both as AI and as a flyable aircraft once a panel and sound folder was added, but not in FSX in either form. I saw nothing at all when I set up a single aircraft on my test airfield. I should have been able to see the aircraft in the FSX selection menu...

I'm not clear then, what Preston is after. Which TR1-A is being referred to, with what scenery in what sim version?

Re: 480FS F-16 package not showing

It's a complicated package, but I can confirm that I was unable to get any F-16's to show with the FSX versions of files in the primary download. That was with the AFCAD only (parking spots were confirmed as connected with AFX) and no 3-D scenery. I then copied one aircraft line into an aircraft.txt...
