Re: RAF Sentinel R1's and USAF E-11A's

How do you correctly set up a long flight returning to Its departure point? As far as I know, the default is to return after 15 minutes, or is that just something inaccurate I've read? Are TNG's used via a waypoint, but at high altitude does that work? Realising I might have picked up some bad habit...

Re: Mig-29 all versions

This thread has made me think. I am sure that time is an increasingly precious commodity for many, but I also suspect that there are some like myself who dabble but may not feel their work is of a high enough standard to share it. Maybe we should lose some of those inhibitions. Personally I agree wi...

Re: FSX Battle of Britain

I completely agree with everything Firebird and others have said. I'd just like to clarify and hope that as far as I know, North Weald is still with us, although Kenley fades.

Tangmere springs to mind as a good starting point..

Re: UTT AS350 flying behaviour

Didn't UTT do something unusual with at least some of their helicopter models in order to achieve an allegedly realistic approach and hover to landing? Although a seemingly attractive feature, I recall it came at the price of a major downside in requiring even more unusual bespoke Afcad files withou...

Re: Augusta Wesland AW139

Many thanks to all involved on this project. I'm in the process of setting up the Italian fleet and airfields using Bismarck's instructions, and so far everything looks great, especially with Pratica di Mare now full of Avantis, too! I've also added Mark's Irish repaints, and I have a query concerni...

Re: Mdl Tweaker II

Thanks for the feedback. I haven't tried to use it lately, but I never got any changes to appear in FS9. I also wondered if it might be a Windows 10 issue.

Great work as ever, John; one of my favourites, too. And many repaint possibilities, not least the offshore crowd. Looking forward to this.

Re: RAF Centenary

Such a crowd of Typhoons was a great sight, and such a rare opportunity. Good, too, to see nine Tornadoes up together. Can't believe their time is up soon.

Re: French retro military AI traffic

I'm very sorry to hear about Jacques. I've long been a francophile, and over the years he was generous in his help on several sim related topics. Away from the sound and fury of military AI, we shared an interest in GA. Thanks to him many of the quieter places in my SIM are busy. Thanks Jacques, sle...

Re: Mdl Tweaker II

An update: FSDeveloper forums indicate Mdl Tweaker was designed for Gmax, I use FSDS. It's unclear from what I've read whether FSDS generated models definitely can't be tweaked. Some users reported objects lying flat or inverted normals, which fits with what I've seen. There is an implication that c...

Re: Mdl Tweaker II

Yes, I'm still with FS9 for now, and I had doubled up the tweaked object to no avail. The fact that the "rotate to user" feature also isn't working leads me to suspect a deeper root cause.

I'm playing with some scenery where I want flags to point correctly according to the wind, and to have some other objects always facing towards me. I heard about Mdl Tweaker and installed it with no problem. It appears to run but when I view all such objects in sim they either don't appear at all or...

With thanks to all who have served in the RAF, past and present. A phenomenal history of which to be very proud on this centenary day. The future is always uncertain, but today we celebrate.
