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

Azure, at its simplest level, seems to be a way of hosting developer-created AI routines and content which, as Greg says, reduces the load on the client PC and allows the AI developer to retain control of their product. If third-party developers are allowed - and I’d suggest it would be impossible t...

This video is P3Dv4.4. It is NOT anything to do with the new MSFS, which will not be released till next year (2020).

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

I suspect you’re right, Steve. But I think we have enough to keep us occupied with P3D for now, so we can watch this new MSFS from a neutral viewpoint until its structure and future becomes clear. I doubt there’s anyone left at MS who was involved with ACES and FS9/FSX, so the community aspect that ...

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

Well as its for Xbox I am not hopeful. Not so. It will be for both X-Box and PC. Whether it will be open-source is yet to be announced. I assume it will be an ‘X-Box Play Anywhere’ title, which means it will run on both. X-Box is only a tied-down PC inside anyway, so most of its games are PC-compat...

Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

Entirely understood, John. It was a fun exercise for me, and I may take it further and see if I can work out how to map paint to the model while I’m on one of my layovers in the US. I did check to see if Orbx had worked it out as they use your model in their FTX traffic package, but sadly not. If I ...

Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

I’m using Affinity Designer on a Mac, but I think it’s not as good for this sort of stuff as it is for many other things. I think I may try Paint.Net. Affinity Designer is a vector programme, the equivalent of Adobe Illustrator and not really suited for this. Affinity Photo is the equivalent of Ado...

Interesting topic, as I’m taking my first steps in repainting just now (attempting to repaint John’s Tiger Moth for use on my own construction of RAF Clyffe Pypard).

Thank you both. Yap, the Cobra is a wonderful car to explore sceneries....
I hope your aircraft recognition is better than your car recognition - it’s a Dodge Viper, not a Cobra! 😉

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

John the only other ones that would need an addition model could be the RAF ones with the refueling probe Gary In my effort to reproduce the RAF of the 1980s/90s, I’d love to see the C1P/C3P variant. I’d also love to see the C1K tanker with Orange Crop pods etc, but with there having been only 6 su...

Re: JY Hunter single-seat FSX model

Nothing wrong with the JY Hunter canopy. Sometimes animations are just not shown correctly in the model viewers in MCX and AI-Aircraft Editor.NET. You should always check in the sim before claiming there is a problem. Henk. Cheers, Henk - good to know. I’ll take care not to have such a hair-trigger...

Re: JY Hunter single-seat FSX model

Yes, gotcha Steve. I do think I need a vanilla installation of P3D to check stuff like this. When v5 comes out I’ll bite the bullet and buy (yet) another copy so I can do just that. I do have v3 on another computer, but of course that’s not great for checking v4 compatibility. Of course, I could sto...

Re: AI Chinook for P3Dv4 ?

Excellent news indeed. Incidentally, I also tried converting the RN Sea Kings, but despite looking fine in MCX and AIAE, nothing showed up in P3Dv4.

Re: JY Hunter single-seat FSX model

Good question, Steve. I'm not entirely sure where I have Hunters flying in-game! It takes over an hour to load my P3Dv4, and then about 30-40 minutes to change location, so it may take a while to find out (yes, I know I can interrogate the traffic files to give myself a shortcut!).

JY Hunter single-seat FSX model

John, I just came across this while rationalising some of my AI stable and checking what works in P3Dv4 using Martin's AI-Aircraft Editor.NET; the FSX single-seat Hunter model has its canopy opening via a lateral slide rather than a longitudinal one. A little inconvenient for the pilot - I used to s...

Re: AI Chinook for P3Dv4 ?

Not sure if this is still relevant, but - for my own use only - I did a quick and dirty conversion using Arno's MCX which has worked perfectly well enough for my needs. I have all the previously-FS9 versions of the RAF's CH47 working in P3Dv4, which will do me until the professionals have had a look...

Re: RAF Brüggen FSX/P3D - Coming, but NOT soon....

If it helps, my Dad was Stn Cdr at Gutersloh from 1974-76 (last of the Lightnings), and I was an RAF C130 pilot from 1980-1998, and often visited all of the RAFG bases. My own memories of details may not be great, but I have access to the collective memories of the Herc fleet from that time, so I ma...
