    Absolutely will be releasing the scenery. As it stands now I've got: KRNO Reno/Tahoe International nearly complete, Reno Stead is in the wings. KBIH Eastern Sierra Regional nearly complete KMMH Mammoth Yosemite nearly complete. My vegetation library is basically RTM The autogen is nearing completion. Matt asked me if I would take on the Buffalo a while back, so now that the C-47 Beta is released I felt it was time to bring Matt's model up to speed. You guys are going to love the flight model, not the performer that later aircraft became, but no slouch either. Feels like a Jug, but without the massive power and weight.

    Somewhere around here I have a Buttkicker Gamer stored away in a box. I used to use it all the time when I was flying combat sims many years ago and it certainly makes a difference when you can feel hits from an enemy on your six! I stopped using it when I switched to civilian flight sims (FS2004/FSX) as I only really felt anything when raising/lowering the gear and on touchdown.

    Update on interior parts texture mapping: good progress on the major parts; now to wrap up the smaller items like life raft, machine gun setups, munitions, and door operating mechanisms. The VCockpit will be mapped/textured with the "G" model.

    It would be great to meet you too Paul. If there is a drawback to our forum, it is that we are rather sequestered by our locations and the distance between friends. I grew up in Huntington Beach, surfed for 35 years before the ocean got sick. I moved to Mammoth Lakes, CA permanently in 1999. I love this area and the isolation, but the sage brush is requiring too much from my immune system. Kind of like living on the ocean and being allergic to salt water...lol. This move is north and out of California. We will be landing in a beautiful and isolated spot on a cliff overlooking the Pacific. This is a temporary location, but lovely and suitable while we begin to look for the right property to develop to suit our needs. We have spent the last year upgrading and re-modeling our little...

    Where abouts are you locating to? There are a few of us in Southern California that try to meet at air shows around here. Would be great to meet you.

    LOL Chris. I just wish we had nice big storm seas to make it as challenging although 43 days at sea on a starvation diet was challenge enough. If you have not read "Men Against the Sea" available at the link above, you really should.

    Chris, the Launch is in the paint shop as we speak. Nigel is out of touch except on the weekends so we should likely hear a status Saturday. Once we have textures, I will release her in beta test. The paint kit should be ready shortly after release.

    Surely possible and will do. The Bounty has a binnacle, just no compass in it. Not sure why I did not do that other than it is so hard to see clearly.

    Thanks for your comments Gentlemen. Working on the time-consuming mapping of the interior parts and surfaces now. Will take a few days to wrap this up before more serious cockpit work will be done.

    Thank you gentlemen for your comments and, even more, for your best wishes. This move is a major step...in a good way...and I'm very much looking forward to it. My new studio looks out over the ocean and has beautiful light coming in through four dormer windows. I can feel the inspiration building already. Thanks Matt for the thumbs up. We'll pick up on the model once I get plugged back in. Jan Kees...you have the ball. I'm looking forward to your C-47 paints and maybe a couple on Matt's "Ugly Duckling" once I get the UVW maps squared away and a PK assembled. Mr. Shupe...thank you for lighting my fuse. I believe that I have caught the bug sir. :very_drunk: G...out for a few days. I'll post up some pics of the new digs when we get settled in.

    I came across this video while having my first cup of coffee this AM. Awesome cockpit and ground camera work. The flying is not so bad either.

    I've had similar problems over the years with that auto-complete issue. I narrowed it down to having multiple programs open at the same time and one of the background programs caused the selection tool to auto-complete whenever it did a refresh or some other function. I suspect it was my modelling program(s) but I was never able to get a definitive answer. I try to only have PS open on it's own now which seems to cut down the issue but then again I bet it's almost a year since I last had PS open! :pop4::dizzy:

    There are two kinds of lights: 1) point lights as you would use for wing tip lights and the light source is obvious , and 2) Effect lights as used in the VC where you see the illumination but not the light emitter. For the exterior/spot view the lanterns and Captain's quarters should have point lights. For the VC, the below deck needs VC light types to illuminate but you would also like point lights for those lanterns :-) You may alter them as you wish. There are limits to the number of lights that will work simultaneously. Be sure you have you settings to allow for the max.

    Brewster Buffalo Progress Today begins packing the truck for the actual move out of CA. I'll be offline for a week or two, but I wanted to post up the latest work on the F2A Buffalo. Here are some shots of the Brewster F2A Buffalo at its current stage of development, which is now a light study to get the bump and skin lighting appropriate for the model. The model is rendered in a basic grey, white/specular skin with bump mapping fairly well developed, but very much a WIP. At this stage the specular levels will be fine tuned to suit the actual service skin and bump map heights will be fine tuned.

    That is not the LDR Mallard, you're using the Milton and Friends FS9 port over model... hence expected issues. Changes in gauge lighting might suggest a corrupted file, so try a reinstall of the aircraft and it might fix it. if not, try adjusting the HDR bloom in P3d :)
