    I recently sent Kazunori Ito a rather extensive e-mail regarding another of his airplanes. In the past when we have had correspondence he has been pretty timely with his replies. It has been a week now since I sent the e-mail and while that's not a terribly long time to wait to get a reply, I have to think that I probably will not get one. This could be due to his health issues, it could be that he no longer wishes to have correspondence concerning his models. . .or it could be that Ito-San has passed away. . .although I feel like someone in this huge community of ours would be privy to that information. At any rate, when you read every line of his readme's and what he will allow and won't allow, it becomes very evident that he doesn't allow any tampering beyond a very simple and...

    Crypto mining is just a piece of the problem. The major contributor is the lack of memory. If you think gpu's are overpriced take a look at memory prices. There are only 3 manufacturers of memory and right now the demand for memory out weighs the supply. You can blame this on all the "Smart" stuff out there today from cellphones to cars to even toasters. If you want to get a new gpu your best bet is to buy straight from the manufacturer. If you go to the Nvidia website you can get a Founders edition 1080Ti for $700 + free shipping. Now if you go through a board partner (Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI) you will pay more but your also getting better cooling and most likely (depending on the model) it will be overclocked straight out of the box. Going through a 3rd party vendor like...

    Been looking at the pd3 site. So far it looks like a good investment (seeing a couple of payware aircraft for FSX are more than the Academic License $59.00). But I got confused! If I buy the Academic License $59.00 does it not come with the newest version 4? Or I'm I looking at something different? Sorry to be dumb about this, but it seems these game/software devs. have/will screw a person over these days. I'm a poor person to and most likely will have to save up the $59.00 up over the next 2-3 weeks.

    Hello Ivan, Interesting idea, although as you say, it would involve a lot of speculation - more a modelling exercise than building a model that existed in reality. There is really very little information to be found. The Curtiss factory mock-up seems to have had two P-40 noses+engines mounted on top of each wing, which would seem aesthetically quite questionable, and would and also reduce lateral visibility considerably. To improve both these aspects, applying artistic license here, subsequent development into a prototype may have derived in lowering the engine-nacelles a bit. The 2 x 1425 Hp hotrod would actually look quite appealing, and be more practical as a fighter. Two shark mouths instead of one! The resulting design would end up looking a bit like the Wright...

    Thank you Sir; looks like I forgot to fix that. You can, if you wish, correct that in the panel.cfg Vcockpit02 section by replacing gauge02 with this gauge line: gauge02=ST_Harpoon!magcompass, 804,12,210,204

    Hi Shessi, I fully understand Ito-san restriction. If I get takers, I'll go off line with them to do what we think we can improve. Although Ito-san is no longer around, we'll honor his wishes. Bill

    Hi Bill, Please read Ito-san's README that came with the T4, and you'll see he does not want people to back engineer or change the mdl. When you have read it, you'll see that Mr Fitzgerald et al, are wrong, and should not be 'publicly' doing this, and we should not be seen to do this at the SOH, not good publicity, for us. It is also failing to honour Ito-san's wishes, someone who was so generous and tallented. No one knows or can stop you, if you do it privately.........................? Thanks Cheers

    I've seen that too. Apparently they have been very popular with people mining for bitcoin...:confusion: (Sean beat me to it) I will wait some more until this madness blows off.

    Itís due to a much increased demand in GPUs for cryptocurrency mining.

    Hi Guys, As many of may have read here, I have just had a rather unpleasant experience trying to get Razbams Fs9 TA-4J (Douglas two seat Skyhawk). One of the reasons I wanted to review it were the comments I saw regarding the poor fidelity of the models shape. I have now switched to getting Ito-san's version of the TA-4J. The fidelity is excellent (I saw the actual aircraft frequently while in the USN - and have an extensive library on USN aircraft). The problem is, of course that there is no VC. Although I can live with that (it is the ONLY game in town), I keep thinking of how to get a VC anyhow. I note that there is a upgrade for ITO's single seat Skyhawk (A-4C) that does include a VC! The upgrade, "fsx_douglas_Skyhawk_updated" is by Bruce Fitzgerald, and is available on...
