    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. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?95952-Lockheed-Lodestar-C-57-C60A-Military-Beta-v1-0

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

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FS 2004 Other Description: FS2004 Lockheed Lodestar L-18 AI and MP Models by Milton Shupe, Tom Falley, and Rachael Whiteford. This AI package is designed to work in FS9 but should work in FSX as well. NOTE: Setup for both AI and Flyable to test, or add/alias sounds and panel for a low poly, low texture load for multiplayer fun

    You are right of course; thank you. On the landing thing, what does teh sim use to determine landing speed? Can you not just increase the stall speed to correct that. I have now completed the package for both engined models. I have also made the package suitable for testing with two .air files; one for AI and one flyable. It of course would also work well for MP flights as a low poly, low texture load aircraft package. Just alias the panel and sounds folder to the full packaged Lodestar (when available). I am uploading the full AI L-18 package now, but attach it here for convenience.

    That does look very nice Tom. Gary did outstanding on that beautiful paint scheme. Yes, I will do the other variant; was waiting to see if other changes were required first. Will get it out this weekend. Thanks for testing this one out for me. :-)

    Hello Lockheed fans. I am making the final changes now to prepare the Lodestar C-57 and C-60A for a full beta. The package will include textures of metal, base white, Goodtime Gal, and RAF ME. I will need another 6-8 hours to wrap up things and do the packaging and uploads, so hopefully by Sunday morning my time - GMT-7.

    The FSX flight model was done by Tom "Fliger747" Fliger for the F7F project back in 2010-2011. Tom does thorough research on handling during FM development. By the way, have you read the "General Handling Characteristics" in the F7F POH? Do you have the POH? There are lots of handling tips there. This may be of interest as well: http://napoleon130.tripod.com/f7ftigercat/id15.html Crank in some real wx and have some fun. :wiggle: EDIT: Here is an excerpt from the POH

    Here is my first round on the AI Lodestar with the PW engine. It has been cut back significantly and should work well in small quantities. The texture load is a very small 1.85 MB. I included only the metal textures. They have been downsized and converted to DXT1 and DXT3. If you want to add other liveries, only the fuse, wings, tails, and eng0/1 bmps need to be added, downsized and formatted. Share you insights on problems or issues, recommendations, etc. If you wish to fly it, just change the air file table 105 value from a 2 to a 0.

    The F7F-3, in progress now, has a traditional helmeted pilot. That will do for starters, but I have a little surprise that I think will please everyone. More on that to come.

    Rui, Just create a folder of the disks with a readme.txt explaining what they are and how to swap them. Zip and upload to the FS9 Misc or Other category. Call it "Grumman Mallard Blurred Prop Options Set" or something to that effect. I agree ... several options like this is a great way to share your talents. :applause:
