    Everyone has different preferences I guess. Attached are 4 that you can try. These have been made available by different artists. Just rename each one to try it.

    Lodestar next release: If anyone has some nice C-57 or C60A textures they would like included in the release package, give me a heads up and I will consider them. Some have been posted in this thread that I thought were awesome. Thanks

    For the Lodestar cockpit beta release, there are needs for better labeling of switches. This is what I have come up with and have requested these changes be made. For anyone else dressing out the VC textures, these are the missing labels.

    Not sure but it makes sense except in Winter jumps behind the lines. :-) Brrrrrrrrrr. Let me think about that, but hopefully someone has some insight as to how this worked.

    Thanks TC; good points. I corrected the fuel pump switches; aircraft.cfg issue. Maybe the cargo doors should be switched to ... cargo doors :-) As for opening the entry door in flight ... not possible but if for paratroops, not sure what they did or if that door worked differently. Anyone with insight to this?

    Thank you Sir! Good stuff too. You and WMD are in a minority ya know; out of 135 beta test downloads, so far, I have received 2 responses regarding helpful feedback. :-) I am certain more will be coming ..... otherwise I will discontinue open beta testing. EDIT: Just FYI, I have removed the Beta from the library. There are plenty copies out there to find and report issues, and there are quite a few. I have all but two corrected at this point. I will await further feedback to finalize the corrections. The next release will be Gold.

    Not sure if translation is failing us here Maty, but 30-40 degrees is a bit high for level flight. :-) At cruise speeds, the nose attitude should be +1 degree. Economy Cruise speed should be roughly 204MPH (178 knots) at 4000' Set Map to 30" Set RPMs to 1800

    The lights setup and cargo doors setup have been an issue to get resolved. I have redone the lights section to eliminate the modeled lights issues, and have them all working now as I planned with the gear lights as taxi lights, the nose warning light used as approach recognition, and the wing ice light working. I need to re-export the models but the aircraft.cfg lights section is ready to go. The cargo doors work but I currently have them all set to the primary door opening: un/load passengers, un/load baggage was the thinking. Not sure if there is a need to change that. The fuel gauges setup does not match the fuel tank configuration and I am working to change those gauges so the fuel tanks can be used as planned. There need to be some improvements in VC switch labels and...

    Different engines of different sizes and manufacturers had different exhaust manifold and header arrangements. It was also discovered that the longer exhausts to the rear added some HP.

    Oh yes ... nice looking bird there. Thanks for sharing. There were several versions of cowlings for the early Wright and Pratt Whitney engines of different sizes. What's a modeler to do :-)

    I have just uploaded the Lodestar military variants for a full beta test. This represents all the textures I have now for the C-57 and C60A, but not necessarily all that will be in the final release. The link below can be used to get to it when approved. If you download this beta v1.0, please provide feedback right here, by PM or email. I prefer it here so all can see the issues. I will be working on the beta release for the L-18 variants over the next few days.

    I do not think so Maty. The package in the library is it for now.

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
