    Here is something to try. Take the TGAs and use image tool to convert them to DDS DXT1 textures. Do them both the same. Then try it with MW DXTbmp. I have done them both ways so I'm not sure which is causing the problem. One of the programs is causing the problem. It might be image tool. I've never try a comparison. I'll try it to night but if anyone gets the chance give it a go.

    Hey All, I haven't forgotten you. I've just been very busy. With the extra OT I haven't had the time or ambition to dig in to the models. I'm still having issues with the textures on Biter. This is one of the reasons I've stopped the other projects. If I can't get this sorted out then there is no point moving forward with the rest. As they are all done in the same way. I'm going to get back into this now that we finally have enough people to cut down the overtime load. As long as it holds that is. I keep you all posted.

    There are a lot of "what if" scenarios for this. The most obvious is the Graf Zeppelin as a commerce raider with support of the Bismark and Tirpitz and the wolfpack. Basically what she was intended for. Another would be in the support of Operation Sealion. Possibly even supporting the Afrika Corps. You know if Hitler and his Senior staff wouldn't have been such idiots, scenarios like that may have actually happened. Especially in 1939-1940. Could have either been a longer (or even short) war. Hows that for a scary thought. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

    Hi everybody! There's a lot of work going on here on aircraft 2d panels, MVG and I are involved in some of it. Yesterday he brought to my attention an historical fact that I want to share with everybody here, it's very interesting. Philips-head screws were not present on German and Italian aircraft of the 1930's. The blueprint shown in the link above indicates they were US-patented in 1936.

    Hold your horses, the two of you! Un attimo di calma! First of all, Stockplane: I do not expect a new panel in lesser time than the Lord created earth. I do not want a new panel at all from you, I just wanted to spare criticism to your beautiful work for a silly, yet historically sound, detail. Ti volevo aiutare, non criticare. There's no fiction here, the main pilot seat on Japanese bombers WAS on the right side of the cockpit, you weren't around a few years ago when this subject caused a long discussion here. Do you want solid proof of what Manuele and I have been trying to suggest you?

    Rich Nagel, I can't imagine why you are seeing these, but the only aircraft you should be able to see on a stock install are the F4U, the F6F, the F4F, the P-38, the A6M2 Zero, the A6M5 Zero, and the Nakajima N1K2_J. You should also see the P-40 addon from the Pearl Harbor pack. All of the other CFS2 aircraft are AI, and should not be seen. All of the other files are either CFS1 addons and/or FS addons and should be junked.

    Hi stockplane, it's very simple, look below, I just copied your screenshot and did an horizontal flip to it. That's the right pilot seat, obviously now every label is mirror-like reversed. All you have to do is take your work, do the same thing and place the instruments according to the right side of the Betty panel as shown in Hisato Nakada's photo. Manuele pointed out to you that the presence of the attitude gauge on the right side, missing on the left side, confirms the right side is the main pilot, or aircraft commander, seat. Done! :running: Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    Rich, Can you verify first that the aircraft DO show up normally in free flight? And can you also list which aircraft do not show up?

    John, As long as you include the readme, yes. I have tried to contact him directly, but his email is KIA. I uploaded it specifically to continue the work he began.

    Are perms needed to rework and release these? The model looks as good as the one I'm working on. In many ways its better. I have a few changes to make it look like some of the Denmark lights. So if no perms are needed I would like to use them.

    Hi Stockplane, a very nice job on the Betty panel. Yet, I remember a discussion here a few years ago involving Morton, where someone objected that Betty pilots and the majority of Japanese bombers, sat on the right instead of sitting on the left seat, as in the rest of world aviation. You might want to investigate this, the main pilot sat on the right seat and the co-pilot, when present, sat on the left. Therefore the 2d bitmap should be turned 180 degrees around, to get the same effect. Other than this small detail, your panels are very, very good.

    Dasuto247, For the most part, yes. However, some authors request their specific written permission to do so, and occasionally you will be denied. If you are going to use the files of a user here at SOH, it's always proper to get their permission beforehand. Download either the Fall Weiss campaign package or the 20th Fighter Group to see how I set up mine, if you wish.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Scenery Add-Ons Description: This is a generic stone lighthouse that Steve2112 created some four years ago in this thread: He suggested improvements for it, as are explained in the thread. If anyone would like to continue tinkering with this beta model, I believe that will preserve the spirit of his generous intent for it to be available for the CFS2 community. This is being released as a beta project for the time being to finish the work that steve2112 began. As such it is strictly freeware, and only authorized to be uploaded to Uploading to any other site without the...
