    Used the covered switch as a fuel dump...to see if all the gauges responded ok...which they did. Here's what the critter looks like from the outside...at YMML. Kinda fake livery...so the call is actually my old man's Ham call.... VK3 DEK ....sorta looks the part, though...;) Now I need to get all the gauges 'matching' with glass and night-lighting....then to work out 'what-to-do' with the VC ...;)

    OK...I have 3 twin gauges showing 6 tanks...with the capacities you listed above...though the math won't add up to 1834... I think it's a typo...1384 is how my math calls it ...;) Here's a pic of them in action....really had to guess at units/scale...;) Yokes can be hidden via hotspot, and the 4-switch 'panel' below the left side is for the popups instead of using icons...;)

    Yes, what I've come up with is similar to that....but here's a query....those fuel capacities....they'd be totals per pair meaning around 700gal overall, correct? So the front for eg would max at 118 per each side of the gauge? At the moment I just have them both giving the same reading per gauge....so there's 3 readings, not 6 ...;) Not sure how much ability there is to mod the aircraft.cfg to get 6 readings....ie. the correct naming of each tank...;)

    Ah....thanks re the tank info....I'll redo the gauges to suit both size and type. I have no problems with the quadrant and don't have it as a popup at all. As for 'lot of information on the c-46 panel' I'm not seeing it.....what I'd like is keyed image/drawing indicating what each gauge and light is...AND relevant to this particular panel ver ....;)

    Not the first time that sound 'add-on' has caused problems. I typically delete it/them from any plane dl that wants it.... so as to avoid potential crashing...;)

    Just about done... 'If only' I knew what some of those warning lights did .....that'd finish it...;) Had to switch in a few more 'layers' to solve some mask issues....but it works...;)

Looks more like a plane now.... next is to work out what the radio gear is.... and various warning lights ....dunno where the landing gear lights are/should be... Then to chuck some glass in the windahs ...;)

    Still 11 gauges to 'work out' ....looks like 3 will be twin needle fuel qs, and a 'total q' or fuel-flow...and there's probably a cowl-flaps somewhere... But it's looking 'tidier' ...;)

    Bit of a break....MotoGP officialling at Phillip Island....and now back at the 46. Looks a bit odd without the yokes.....lot more to do with the gauges, but the ECU is the original working GAU 'inserted' into the Panel. As always...working out what gauge is what is the bane of my existence...;)

    I wouldn't buy Apple crap if you held a gun to my head. Their solution to their poor working conditions leading to suicides by workers jumping....was to install catch nets. Not my idea of a socially responsible company...whose prime directive is to hide income to avoid paying taxes.... the ACCC is now chasing them. Jobs liked the Beatles' music so stole their name...and was sufficiently arrogant as to admit the fact. WHEN Apple Label pushed them the agreement was made they would keep out of the music game. 2 years later there was iTunes. It's no fluke that the world's most profitable company is also the world's worst ....apart from Union Carbide....they killed more people ....;)

    There'll be no troubles with Win 7. It's by far a superior OS to XP. 8 on my laptop does the demo of FSX without issue....but I'm yet to try likewise on 10, but both 8 and 10 will be less resource-hungry than their predecessors....particularly Vista...which was comparatively a dog of an OS simply released too soon.
