    Interesting question Brad; made me think about what I would really like to fly in. Hands down, it would be an Aero Commander; simple twin, high wing, piston, GA aircraft. And I would prefer the AC520 of all the rest for casual flying. As a passenger, the best turboprop I ever flew in was the de Havilland Dash-7; quiet, low prop hum, comfortable, powerful, lots of handling finesse, a great experience overall. I tend to like high wing, STOL aircraft, piston preference. Think de Havilland for most of them. I flew in a DHC-4 Caribou while in Vietnam and was very impressed with that aircraft.

    LOL Yes, in 4-6 weeks maybe ... but it will not be drool worthy, just updated. PRB did such a nice job on the WIP panel and gauges, I may not change it. :-)

    They could just be looking for a safe haven - pick up some vitals, don their gladrags for some merrymaking, refit and get a few barnacles scraped. Very nicely done pirate ship by Erwin Walker will find moorings and a warm welcome here. Wing_z; you're looking great in sim, Sir - very nice water textures, too! Payware?

    Are you in FS9? If so, the aircraft.cfg MOIs may need an update. I changed mine to the following: empty_weight_pitch_MOI= 27241.360 empty_weight_roll_MOI= 56108.570 empty_weight_yaw_MOI= 10431.430 empty_weight_coupled_MOI= 0.0

    Okay, I have finally worked through all five models to get the exterior improvements done, and get all the cockpits functioning and looking the same. Focus now will shift to re-mapping the exteriors. All models have different fuselage shapes but the wings and engines are the same except for the 3N. Hope to make good progress over this long weekend ... LOL before I get back to retirement on Tuesday. :-)

    Pete, he a great job with this very complex aircraft given the constraints. Just search for Erwin Welker; you will find it. Title: FSX/FS2004 Galleon NEPTUNE from the 17th century FSX/FS2004 Galleon NEPTUNE from the 17th century. This sailing ship is a replic for Roman Polanski's movie "Pirates" with Walter Matthau as pirats captain. On my model I have replaced the oversized figurehead "Neptune" with a scary reaper. The boat is almost complete rigged with hundreds of ropes regarding the early 17th century. Forteen cannons and two Jolly Roger flags are animated. Twentyeight cameras let you explore the whole ship: The deck, below the decks and you can enjoy the sailors views from high above in the masts. Using FS2004 there are seventeen virtual panel lookaround views. FSDS...

    Bob Familton setup a nice FSX AI route with the AI version I sent to him. Works great! Looks great! I asked him if he would add a few routes and release the package. No impact on frame rates i could see. I am ready for some MP action this weekend if anyone wants to jump in.

    I think that a dedicated paint kit with all of the layers included would be the best option. Individual graphics, logos etc. could be added in their own layers. The original paints and model are exceptional, but there is always room to take things to the next level. TF has taken a classic to an entirely new level of detail. Unfortunately, there is no way to reconcile the new bumps with existing skins. By addressing this immediately post release, options are now available to create some really stunning art based on a highly accurate canvas. It's nice to have these options. I can't wait for the new paint kit...that is, if TF is kind enough to share his work with those thankful enough to receive it. Simlpy awesome detail work....again! TY TF

    Unscrupulous governments have zero interest in the content/purpose of the sites they attack/probe, they are simply looking for unprotected and vulnerable sites that they can then exploit by adding their own nefarious code to use as and when desired. If they can amass thousands/millions of sites which can be triggered to run their 'code bombs' they can quickly cripple huge blocks of the internet and bring down Western commercial and government infrastructures. The attacks could also be religion or ideology based, they don't like many of the things we take for granted in the West and see it as their duty to wipe it out.

    LOL. Then we'll have ingenious folk inventing ways of adding aircraft to a ship sim. Seriously; Milton's Bounty project has positively widened the frontiers of thought regarding what can be possible for FS. NCGent's Naval vessels are awesome contributions towards making our seas realistic. DaveWG, Maarten, Chris; much appreciated, mateys :-)

    LOL Johan, my wife and I go out plenty. :-) And, this Tigercat will never cost you money, or anyone else; it's a gift to the community as with all our projects. We have similar backgrounds but at my advanced age, I have just done more I guess. :-) Started my career in IT as a programmer and progressed through Business Systems Development, then Technical Support, Telecommunications (voice and data networks) and 16 years in IT management, then left the large corporate job for some nice operations level servers, networking, applications, and peripheral support. Being a one-man band was a lot of fun when you have responsibility for it all, and know how to take care of business. Retired now, I still enjoy managing the projects as long as I have an excellent team required to make our...

    Thanks for the warm encouragement - happy this will be of some interest/use, Gentlemen. Adding more details and items - ground polys and terrain adjustments to come. Lighthouse now happily working in both sims - Milton's awesome flag animation added to Admiralty building. Will probably add the flag at the harbour front, too.
