    This is nice. Was stationed there '67'-'69 AIMD NAS Cubi. I think the "CUBI" is what the Seabees called it; Some kind of term that is short for "Construction Battalion". They built it.

    Messerschmitt Bf109G-6/R6 trop by Design Team Daedalus Unit: 7./JG27 Maleme, Crete December, 1943 Pilot: unknown There is no "standard" Bf 109G-6, as the production run spanned 2 years it underwent many modifications and updates along the way. Tropical versions were delivered throughout the entire production run as the G-6 trop but displayed fewer variations. For example, I have not seen any G-6 trop aircraft fitted with an Erla Haube canopy while many G-6 versions were so fitted. The most obvious feature of the G-6 trop was the sand filter fitted to the front of the supercharger air intake. All G-6 trop aircraft had two small teardrop shaped clips on the port side below the canopy sill, which were mounts for a sun umbrella. The umbrella was intended to provide shade for the...

    Added the txt files themselves or opened them, and copied and pasted the text into the effects.xml and sounds.xml per the instructions?

    Hi Postbaer61. Your hope will not be disappointed as the Chevrolet Suburban collaborative project is expected to be released next weekend. As far as Rob and Manfred's time permits, the FSX Version will be ready with luck. Hopefully both Versions FSX & P3Dv4 will be released at the same time :-)

    It sounds like you didn't add the lines from "ADD TO effects.xml.txt" and "ADD TO sounds.xml.txt" to the effects.xml and sounds.xml, respectively.

    Joe - if you're still bugged by the wake visibility starting straight away, try adding this visibility condition to the end of the main modeldef file <PartInfo> <Name>custom_vis_AIRSPEED_TRUE_20</Name> <Visibility> <Parameter> <Code> (A:AIRSPEED TRUE,knots) 20 &gt; if{ 1 } els{ 0 } </Code>

    It looks to me like all the files are there. I did not add all the reticle files to the TextureMagic.ini from the Spit mkII install as they were already there from the 2019 shaders install. Should I have overwritten them? I did check, and the gunsight.exe process is running after I start a flight, just doesn't do anything. No muzzle flashes either as well as no gun sound.

    I cannot tell what resolution is used in full screen mode. The display settings read: 1920 X 1080 X 32 but as you can see in screenshot 2 it is not that. I can't seem to change it.

    That is very strange indeed. I can't imagine any reason why the flatten would not be affecting the mesh. Is the mesh just Rhumba's mesh? Is the Wake Island land bgl an LWN poly that you yourself made with G2K? If it is then open the project in G2K and save it as wake-island-lwn-flatten. Reopen the new project and set the settings as per above, rename the output bgl too, and then run it through the process outlined above. This will created an A16N flatten that covers the entire island- making it entirely flat. stick it in there and see if the problem disappears.

    These are AI boats placed in Simobjects/Boats. I use them with 'aicarriers', don't know of any other apps for using AI boats but I guess there may be. I would imagine they could be converted to .bgl objects to place in scenery but they're typically very big models (>10Mb). DaveQ

    Hi MR, No I had never used this method to sharpen up the coastlines, thanks for the tip, must try this.. very interesting. I was using FSFlatten to draw partial flattens, just where the water was rising towards the coastlines I had drawn. I don't think I had drawn large enough areas to interfere. See the attached screengrabs. I created a fresh install of FSSC to make sure that prog was working fine - no change. I changed the A16N flatten to cover only the main runway, & not the 2 unfinished runways - interesting, showed some small hills in those areas, & the blended backdrop did not disappear in that corner when I overflew it. I removed all gsl objects in case one of those was influencing things - no change, so not the gsl objects.
