    Baldy, If you need me to include any updates in your packages, just let me know. I did that for some others of yours already.

    Hi Grover, Are you talking about all torpedo's or just the ones supplied with the Hudson update? did you by any chance use the supplied effects file for ETO? instead of updating your own effects file? I'm letting the cat out of the bag here, but there is a largish ETO patch being worked on right now with many updates. one of the updates is a revamp of effects for torpedos to allow bouncing bombs (such as the 617 raid in 1943 on the Ruhr dams) this work requires edits to torpedoes in ETO to call on new effects. each torpedo now calls on its effect via the weapon xdp file rather than a generic torpedo effect. this mean the new bouncing bomb (which is actually a torpedo) does not show a wake, rather it shows a series of splashes whilst travelling towards its target. If you did use...

    Hi All, I have just been informed by one of the testers that the download package is missing one weapon. If you select the M24 torpedo loadout in MAW the game willl crash. You need to copy the "ETO_mk24" weapon from your ETO or Rising Sun install and place it into the weapons folder in your MAW install that will fix the issue. I will organise for a replacement Hudson set to be uploaded with the M24 torpedo included. sorry for any inconveniance, regards Rob.

    Hi Daniel, the long range tanks were used for ferry flights and by the transport command when moving people from Med/Nth Africa to England and back. at one point they had a small airline service set up with regular scheduled flights. I vaguely remember reading about some CC planes with the long range tanks for extended recon patrols in the Nth Atlantic and up and down the Norwegian coast out of Ice Land. regards Rob.

    Nice job quote a famous CFS2 wingman's line, "Let's go get 'em!", or as the BPF fighter jocks would say, "Tallyho!" :biggrin-new:

    Hi All, Owen, what your seeing there is the crate model as its just about to hit the ground. and in the background you can see the effect being run for a crate you dropped earlier. The two models being used for the Hudson supply loadouts do not have parachutes included. instead once this model hits the ground an effect is triggered that then shows a parachute with a box or supply container hanging under it. In CFS3 ther is no way to have a deploying parachute in a weapon model, so to make this work Steve Dunn made up the effect sequence which calls for a texture sheet. this texture sheet has the parachute image with the box hanging under it. it was first used to create the seamine weapon. when using the the supply crate or supply containers you will see in the bomb bay the...

    Heide, Please tell Al that he is in my thoughts and prayers. My father died from COPD, (though he only smoked a pipe briefly in college) and he once described how laborous every breath was. His words were "it's like trying to breathe through a straw." I can imagine that's similar to what Al is going through right now...every breath is a struggle.

    Considering when the WTC was built in the early 1960's, I bet there were at least tons of asbestos dust floating in the air. Here, back then, it was used everywhere as a regular building material, used both as an insulating agent and on roofs, no one knew at the time what kind of a health hazard it posed. Not only it was used in private buildings, it was also used in public buildings, schools, hospitals, all kind of industrial buildings and infrastructures, all of modern cowsheds built during those years were roofed with it. It was regarded as a cheap, almost eternal material. A common name brand here for large roofing panels back then, made out of asbestos, was "Eternit"..... imagine how lightly it was taken! Reclamation and cleanup of asbestos is still going on to date here, it...

    Hi gosd, No worries mate I know your not criticizing the work, you have a problem and we're just working it out. It's good you got a glimps that means the files are working, especially in MAW as none of the weapons are stock so the addon is working. The effect shows up above the ground and then slowly settled to earth you should see it for a few minutes at least. It may be that whilst you were looking for the chute it got down low before you spotted it. I can usually drop the crates etc and then do a wide circle back around and pass them a couple of times before they hit the ground The reason the crates supply container disappear is they must hit the ground to trigger the effect, like all weapons the model disappears and the required effect kicks in but in this case it's...

    Heide, Thanks for letting us know, and I hope Al feels better. It's part of my job to make sure that the legacy and lessons get passed on to my students...but I am now teaching a generation of students who, by 2015-2016, will have been born right around the attack, and have no concept of life before then. It's tough to paint a picture of that reality if you've never known it. When I tell the students where I was and what I was doing when the Challenger blew up, or the tanks in Tiananmen Square, the Berlin Wall being torn down, and the breakup of the Soviet Union, they look at me like I have four heads. (In reality, I only have :wiggle:)

    Highpockets, That's a good question. I sleep well, as a matter of fact, but I can understand the mystery. Let me unravel it for you. I like working on multiple CFS2 projects (typically four to six) simultaneously. This is not to show off or anything, but it's because I tend to get bored easily if I work on something for too long. I have dealt with being ADHD all of my life, and instead of letting it run me, I have learned when to manage it and when to set it free. It actually helps me as a teacher, because I like doing multiple activities and different types of activities during a class period, and consequently my classes are active, lively, and often exciting for my students. In CFS2, it can both be an asset and a detriment, especially if I get a bad case of "ooohhh...something...
