Re: Multi versions of FSX -Steam

Should also be noted that you can install FSX boxed and FSX Steam on the same system. Install FSX boxed first and then FSX Steam will install as a separate installation with its own config files

Re: Saab MFI-17

I fixed the problem by replacing the general section of the config file by copying from the Bulldog. Works fine in my setup. This was using the original FS9 version. I just confirmed that the same problem is present in the FSX version - the same fix works with that too. Would you post the changes t...

Re: Saab MFI-17

Hi,
Sorry Joseph29 I can't help you, they taxi fine in my installation of P3D v4.5.

Having said that, bouncing behaviour like that is usually related to something slightly out of whack in the contacts. Try adjusting the Static Compression or the Damping ratio.

John, Count me as one of those 269 FSX/P3D users who have downloaded at least a part of the complete set and not said thanks.

Re: Saab MFI-17

Just uploaded FSX native conversions of Jons lovely little Saabs. They have been flying happily in my P3Dv4 Scandinavia.

Thanks to Jon for giving me permission to release them.

Please give the librarians time to vet the files and add them to the library.

Re: A-10 textures all black at KDMA

It sounds plausible. I did read that anything over 1024 was reset when a change was made. *EDIT* I just discovered something weird. Checked my fsx.cfg and the size is 4096 and the slider is full right in the game. It maybe that the Steam Edition has a different default. Correct, the defaut texture ...

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

I've been working with some of the folks from AIG to investigate migrating AI into MSFS. The short answer is that it is possible to import FSX models (not P3D) into MSFS and get them to display. The long answer is that it is complicated (you need to write json package scripts, you need 1 model folde...

Re: Can't Install Aircrafts Addons

Hi BlackFalco The aircraft that are downloadable from this site are all AI aircraft. That means that they are not user flyable aircraft but aircraft that are controlled by the flightsim. In order for the simulator to do this it needs flightplans and quite often the default airports need to be replac...

Re: Make an animation before the pushback P3dv4

The other thing to remember (and this has bitten me a number of times) is that Nav light triggers don't work with piston engine aircraft.

This is true in all the sims afaik.

Re: MAIW MCAI de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk Conversion Support

There must be something sim specific to the sim as well. When I did my testing of the conversion it (and most other tail draggers I tested) taxi reasonably well. They wander slightly off the center line while taxi-ing (especially when following curved taxiways) but nothing as severe as what you desc...

Re: Sikorsky S-92 Helicopters

Thanks John for creating such great models (these plus all the others you did).

Also thanks to Dan for getting flight plans together.

We always appreciate your work - even if we forget to say so.

So thanks again

Re: New Helicopter AI System from AIGTech

Is this possible also in FS9? I red a few times that technically it is possible to add hover effect over certain Helicoptet spots in the Afcad. I think UTT made a helicopter with hoover effect. For FS9 and FSX (not FSX-SE) you can buy Helitraffic 2009 https://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=he...

Re: MAIW HTAI Hawker Siddeley BAe HS-125 Conversion Support

What are you using to look at the textures?

This FSX model uses an alpha channel to display the lightmap correctly.

What you are seeing is the alpha channel being blended with the rest of the texture.

Use a program like Gimp or Photoshop that allows you to properly see the texture.

Re: MAIW MBAI Lockheed S-3 Viking Conversion Support

Thanks, was doing my initial checks in Martin's AIAE program and the lightmap was in the global texture file, causing the missing textures to show the checkerboard. In game, v4.5, I can see it was the formation lights. This brings up a good point. Not to pick on Chris specifically but if anyone is ...

Re: ATAC fleet Texture Update

Do they really still fly Hawker Hunters? How cool.
It looks great, actually all the paints look great (as usual Mark).

Would be great to get these paints and a representative flight plan into the sim.
