    Dave, to be completely honest, I have no idea what I'm doing so I can't really answer your qurstion! Haha...but I'm trying to read through some tutorials unfortunately they assume I know how to do certain things...which I don't...yet... I am having a dilemma though, I've gone back and I'm attempting to change the alpha channels again but even though I save the trans.bmp it doesn't appear the way I saved it when/if I reopen the file lateron? Is this normal? I don't want to high jack this thread but maybe you can PM me and I could get some quick study notes from you regarding the process? I'll be out of town and be back Monday. Thanks Dave!

    If I do ever finish this one...it will be a miracle, among other things! But prior to that I believe I'm using one of DaveQ's fabulous repaints as the base and would need to get his permission to use it ad my science experiment anyway. I don't think anyone will want to try and claim responsibility for my hack job when I'm done anyways but just so all bases covered and proper credit is given... :)

    Brought a little polish out to the old girl today...hand done...arm is sore, and it took all day....now, can someone please lend me an industrial polishing machine! John Terrell, where are you! ;) I have no idea what I'm doing, I've NEVER painted anything in FS before and this is my first go at it...so far, I've proven that there is in fact Aluminum under all the dirt, and I've got the elbow grease to do it...don't hold your breath though! LOL

    i love this aircraft. FPS of a default aircraft, system depth, and fun to fly! What more could you ask for!

    What is your default flight? Better yet, to avoid many of the crazy weirdness that FSX can create seemingly out of no where; delete your default flight from the folder it is located in -- if you use tacpack, use the "purge default flight" option. Then create a new flight and save it as your default. Use the default C172. See if that helps...

    I caved...it's a serious fps hog...it is very curious. I get about 45 fps prior to one of the system/gauge startup during aircraft start. And then while paused the fps goes back up to about 45 fps. But while.flyjng it's about 11 to 17 max. Hopefully they can sort out what is causing such a massive drain and fix it. Its.a real.shame because it really is a great aircraft and is a hoot to fly.

    These are taken in P3D...but you get the idea...looks essentially the same in FSX

    I think he's been involved with the Manfred DC3 project. I have spoken to him a few.times since this release...but not about repaints for it.

    000rick000 replied to a thread A bit of Conversation? in Prepar3D
    Can't wait for Bill to test it...and for Milviz to start incorporating the P3Dv2x into their products. I get such amazing performance in P3Dv2 with all the additional features that it has, that it's difficult to go back to FSX -- even though I get the same performance in FSX. My only reason for going back is that not all addons are compliant with P3Dv2 at this time, meaning for some of my favorites, I get random CTD's or OOM errors, or model errors. For example, Warbirdsim Drop tanks will not load in P3Dv2x for me. Certain repaint versions of QW BAe146/RJ will give OOM errors while others don't. it's very strange in deed. Certain lights will work on certain addons, while none of the 3D lights from FSX aircraft work for me.

    Is this in FSX or p3Dv2.1+HF1? I have an AMD 8150(8 core) @ 4.2 ghz 16gb RAM nvidia GTX 770 4gb and @30FPS locked, I'm in a pretty stable margin of about ~25-30fps (depending on area) in full weather with high densities of autogen and high water detail...with all aircraft...including the previous Alabeo/Carenado aircraft I have (pitts, staggerwing, Extra, C337). Hopefully this will be addressed...I was REALLY looking forward to this one. I'm holding my breath that they will eventually do a Diamond D-jet...but what do you think? Should I purchase Phenom or should I wait?

    You really need Bomber_12th or gman250 help. IMHO they are the masters of aluminum.

    Untick sim objects cast shadow unless you want buildings etc to cast shadows. You'll notice there are two shadows columns. One for projecting a shadow and one for receiving a shadow. Check the box Terrain receive shadows and and leave the other unchecked. Also increase the resolution on your terrain mesh. I'm having the same issue and this has reduced it by quite a bit. The shadows which control whether your aircraft casts a shadow and receives a shadow are controlled by the first two options in the shadows settings make sure all four boxes are checked. I have those and terrain receive shadow checked and that's it. It's a little buggy still. Also you might want to turn off cloud shadows in your p3d.cfg file. OR -- you can simply wait and upgrade to version 2.2 which should be...
