Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

I could be wrong here but I seem to remember that Nick made the model w/o windows, some were created like that. The reason being that if you had windows you had to model, even basically, a cockpit which meant more polys and vertices. There were certain types where it was felt that as most people wo...

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

Thanks Gavin. On the FS9 CH-47 model/paints I have, I haven't found the windows! I assume they're a separate part in the model somewhere, but in MCX (dev release), highlighting textures fails to reveal them. On other versions of the Chinook I've played with, it was easy, but these paints have no alp...

Good thing is I noticed I missed to include Ray Gulf War package. That calls for an update for some releases.
That would be great, Martin, as I couldn't find a way to make the cockpit windows transparent using the FS9 model and textures. My MCX-fu isn't that good!

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

It's entirely possible, Steve, though I thought I'd covered that by copying the model from the Matrix folder, which was working. Anyway, it's all good now - thanks for being there to bounce ideas off!

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

The reduced number of sections is because I've removed all the ROCAF and JASDF entries from the Hangar aircraft.cfg file, as they're duplicated in Matrix. I have finally solved the problem by replacing the model file with the one from the Matrix installation, and going through each .cfg entry that c...

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

OK lets start with some simple elimination stuff. Tim, what version of P3D are you using? Also when I looked in the model.cfg for the P3D CH47D I noticed that it said :- normal= NBAI_Chinook P3D now the actual model is ' nbai_chinook P3D '. I don't know if it is case sensitive but try altering the ...

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

A quick addendum to note that the HAF CH-47Ds do work, but they use the ch47d-414 model.

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

Matrix only has the JASDF and ROCAF CH-47Ds - and they're fine. I've commented them out of the aircraft.cfg file for the full package. AI Aircraft Editor Net is reporting that the CH47D model doesn't exist in the full package. The file seems ok. I 'bak'd it and copied over the file from the Matrix a...

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

Yes, that's what I was hoping to achieve by making a traffic file that uses all of them. The HC2/winch and HC3 models seem to be fine after the mods of the other day.

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

On this occasion, Steve, it's US Army 3-238th 87-00093 and 91-00266. I'm going to try a traffic file that uses all of the CH-47Ds (and a couple of others) to see if it's common to all of them. However, that will have to wait till today's TdF coverage is finished!

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

I can confirm that the FSX version is fine in FSX:SE using my traffic file and and FSX version of the airfields I was playing with (ETOR and ETIE).

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

Hi Gavin. I was playing around with making traffic for southern Germany, and used a couple of US Army paints from your updated package (if you want to know the specific paints, I’ll fire up the computer later and let you know). Although the traffic registers and can be seen on radar and in the traff...

Re: MAIW NBAI Boeing CH-47 Chinook Conversion Support

To return to the CH47D, it's invisible whichever paint is called. Was the 47D in the update package, or is that an older model?

Re: B(I)8

I did make the B(I)8 as a request, but it's for FS9. I have no FSX/P3Dv4 model. John Is that model still around, John? I'd love to do a 16 Sqn B(I)8 as a tribute to a very good mate of mine who passed away not long ago. He always spoke very fondly of the B(I)8, which he flew a few years before we m...
