    Thanks for the compliment! I'm just a beta tester. But I've also got access to the paint kit. MV fulltime texture artists are the real geniuses..and they have some Awesome paints which at this time are still hush hush...but they are great. This one is using the paint kit. The previous one which a few pics are on the Milviz Facebook page was modified to provide a few texture edits and custom alphas and speculars. The same will be done with this one. Currently if Colin chooses to include them it's up to him, and I will gladly donate them if that's the case. I'm happy to give back in some small way to the community. I'm doing this of my own accord and wanted to show just some WIP for anyone interested in the progress of the F100D.

    Nope. I'm not saying that at all. This isn't the only paint I'm working/worked on...I believe I'm just using my previous wings textures ATM as a place holder until I create the blue underwings feathers. At any rate, its all WIP for the time being.

    Duckie, Bjoern, others, No worries from me! I was just curious. I'm not associated with VRS, I was just curious. I would have to say that everyone has their opinion and they're entitled to it! :) I'd have to disagree, I flew a fantastic mission with a fellow tester in the new MV P38 and it was very smooth and very fun. Took off with stores and came back empty! P3D is especially fantastic and enjoys much more performance than FSX. At any rate I completely respect your reasons and will un high jack this thread! ;)

    000rick000 replied to a thread Teasers? in FSX General Discussion
    I'm very curious as to why one would not simply purchase TacPack? It's the same cost as an accusim airplane from a2a and allows you to have all the features enabled of every forthcoming project without having to ask the devs to modify them to not use Tacpack? I'm just curious what's the aversion? Not an attack just legitimately curious.... It offers much more than just shooting at things. the AI functions alone are worth the purchase. I can for example call up an entire flight of B-17s and fly with them via the tanker menu using TP. I can set altitude speed direcruit and a host of other settings. It's great for formation flying with FR freeware B17s! Sacrifice one airplanr purchase for TP amd you won't regret it!

    Rob, I've been checking out your F100 the last couple days and love it! Thank you! I was wondering if it might be possible to include basic/empty placeholder specular files if you ever decide to update anything with it. I was looking at some photos and was thinking that some awesome textures could be created if the speculars were available. Anyway, thanks again!

    Fantastic work Rob! I love all the "what if" planes. Now if you want a challenge try the XF-92A. two variants of the prototype. one without and one with afterburner. hint hint ;) I'd love to get the non-AB a nice coat of polish one that aluminum! I love the research jets of the 50s.

    The download for the v2 prototype is found in the SOH warbirds library only. I'll be updating it at some point with some additional changes but for now you can find it at SOH only.

    000rick000 replied to a thread P-38? in FSX General Discussion
    YF-23 -- As I see it, add a workable weapons bay, new FDE (current FSD one is highly unrealistic) and TacPack this thing up (yes I used TacPack as a verb!) and redo the HUD which is nigh impossible to see in almost every condition and you've got me happy! :D :encouragement: Now if you wanted to make the textures HD too...that would be a thing of beauty. One of my all time favorite aircraft of every genre. Oh! -- And get rid of the modeled burner in favor of a modern effect...that would be fabulous....that is all.. LOL.

    000rick000 replied to a thread P-38? in FSX General Discussion
    Both the P38 and YF23 are Milviz models. I created a new PAV 801 (I think lol) dark grey scheme for it available here. Milviz has redone completely the "FSD" version and is now a completely milviz product. It's also Tacpack enabled. I love the 38 and it's well worth getting the red bull reduce version also. Gman5250 has done a fantastic set of new Red Bull skins and are aluminum skins for that one as well. worth the buy for a 38 lover.

    Could install the fsx version, grab the mirror texture and then paste it into the corresponding texture folder in P3D and then turn off the mirror? I wonder if there simply a lack of texture and that's why the mirrors are black when not turned on?

    I bought into the pre release beta early on and performance has been fantastic all the waynthrough...mirrors can be disabled in P3D also. I've been using it on p3dv2 for a long time albeit without TP until it was recently released. it's super smooth! ;)

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - Cold War Description: I want to thank "CenturySeries" of Glowing Heat Productions for providing all the original textures with the B-58 rendition which form the base for this redone aluminum version. All the research and original credit goes to him. I would also like to thank "DaveQ" of sim-outhouse for allowing me to use and modify his wings textures with his fabulous panel lines, so as not to have to reinvent the wheel! THANK YOU! This is a repaint of the original XB-58 prototype textures. I've attempted to create an alternate Aluminum look and overall modification of the textures, giving it a more metalic look. To check it out, rate it or add comments, visit XB-58_texture.proto The comments you...
