Re: Thoughts on the next project

I always liked the the T7, plus the Martin Baker pair because they're still with us.

Re: Aircraft lights Entries in the .CFG file: Explained

I know this is an old thread, but there's always more to learn. I wanted to use some xml code to place a pilot in the cockpit when the beacon light comes on. I think I'm right in saying that for this to work, the aircraft type in the cfg file cannot be 1, so, even for a piston engined aircraft, you ...

Tiger UHT

Following on from last year's MFI-17, recently I've been having a go at a Tiger UHT helicopter for the German army. I'm still just working in FS9, I'm afraid, as that's all my skills or lack of them will allow, but I'm nearing the point where it's as good as it's going to be, and ideally I'd like to...

Yes, a fair point! It's maybe better filed under Scenery rather than Aircraft.

Re: JYAI Merlin HC4

Concerning ex RNHF, it doesn't get any more iconic than the Swordfish; I can see LS326 doing a slow fly past with a white ensign hoisted. It's a nice thought, but only if you really fancy it, John.

Re: Pau woe

Thankyou both for your support. Steve, I'll try what you suggest in the fullness of time, but meanwhile, John, you were right about the autogen. Dialling the scenery density back to "dense" did the trick for Pau, and I can certainly live with that for now, not least because I then remember...

Pau woe

Continuing from the issue I found with telegraph poles all over Pau LFBP in the Gazelle thread.. First, and as far as I am able to tell, the problem is definitely with the Occitania scenery I have installed of southwest France; if I disable it, the problem disappears. But then I get confused again, ...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Thanks Steve, it's slowly dawning on me that I may have never understood that point properly.. Getting back on to topic, John's Gazelles all look great, and I've tweaked the parking so that there are no duplicate spots, so the Gazelles now peacefully co-exist with Pumas and, at Le Cannet, with my ra...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Steve, I haven't acted on your suggestion yet, but what I found odd was that the ADE already had a lot of small excludes, as if to solve a similar problem, but they didn't align with the poles I saw. Then, when I tried to add some excludes of my own, they had no effect. Furthermore, the Pau scenery ...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

I found a couple more things, this time with ADE files for the French airfields in FS9. Some helicopter overlay parking spots sit over existing airfield spots, for example at Le Cannet LFMC/LFM1, hence there are aircraft from other FPs occupying the same places. It's all resolvable with some tweakin...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Thanks John for another wonderful helicopter. There's one tiny issue with the flight plans, just for people's information: I have found what seems to be a consistent anomaly in the French ones (I haven't checked the others). Taking the first plan as an example, and separating the legs for clarity be...

Re: Transparency

Thanks to the Blackhawk FDE it's much, much better now, even at 15 fps. So, really it's a Blackhawk in Tiger's clothing, but at least those parms do the job. Thankyou once again. And with LOD's maybe a much easier job now than they were, I'm encouraged to press on. If there are further progress/prob...

When I made my MFI-17, I used a separate texture for the canopy glass. I could have just done that again, but on my current project I wanted to include the glass as a small section within the main texture sheet. As a result, I've currently got some odd ghosting effects throughout the model. So far I...
