    Along with David Wooster I would also include Warwick Carter, Tom Gibson, John Sinstrom, John B. Loney Jr., Tim "OBIO" Dement, Lee Swordy and Bill "Lionheart" Ortis. I'm sure there are others who I will be embarrassed to have omitted when I think of them.

    Thank you! Remember that almost everything I've done beyond simple repaints was done in partnership with David Wooster. He should be on the list too. I'm enbarrassed that I didn't think to add him in my earlier post.

    I see that this is labeled as version 1.0, and I wonder how it differs from the version 1.0 released last summer??? I presume it must be better in some way or it wouldn't have been made and released, though it's hard to imagine how the excellent earlier version left much room for improvement. Will the skins for last summer's version work on this one?

    OK, I figured it out! I knew I always keep a recods or a copy of everything I make; I just had to figure out where to look for it. The main thing you need is a pair of replacement files for FFNE that Scott Gridley made to adjust the shorelines so that George Grimshaw's Logan Airport scenery would work with FFNE. You don't need the modern KBOS scenery, which would be grossly anachronistic in GW, just the shoreline adjustments. That tweak was released on Avsim and was apparently lost in the big hack, because it's not there now. I've attached a copy here, along with an AFCAD file I made that includes a small ramp that covers up an unwanted bit of water near the airport, and two small ramps that cover unfortunately located "mud flats" in the harbor (located right in front of docked...

    Hmmmm... I have FFNE and I have William Sanders' East Boston installed. (I couldn't remember his or the airport's names when I posted before.) I had to make some exclude files to disappear some shorelines that were out in the bay like that, but I don't recall having to hide that much stuff. My recollection is that I only had to make a few exclude files. But maybe I'm sugar coating the memory, and have repressed a lot of work that I did but don't recall. My memory must be going. I did this several years ago, but I should be able t recall what I did! I looked in my GW for the exclude file or files to post for you, and I can't find any excludes with file names that suggest East Boston, Boston, KBOS or anything like that. But I know I have the Sanders East Boston in GW with FFNE...

    Since the list includes others who have "gone west" (such as David "Opa" Marshall" and Greg Pepper) we should add the late, great Paul "Putt-Putt" Clawson and Damian "Windrider" Radice. They are no longer with us, but their work is still available. And a couple that I haven't heard of for a while now, who I hope are still OK: Odd ("Henry William") Spjøtvold, who I think is still active on the "dark side" (FSX), and Heather "Bad Weather" Sherman, who taught me much of what I know about painting models (but nowhere near everything she knows!)

    If it was just FREEflow New England (or any other corrected water scenery) there wouldn't be shorelines out in the water like that. What would do that is a combination of FREEflow New England (or another corrected water scenery) plus another scenery (Logan Airport, perhaps?) that's either: - intended to work with the stock scenery, or - the reverse - no corrected water scenery but another scenery that's meant to work with corrected shorelines. Some scenery includes its own shorelines, and they would be set up to work with either the stock shorelines or a corrected water scenery, but not both.

    I agree. If he's known to be deceased, he can't have any objections. That goes double if he was a member here. I can say that when I've gone west I won't mind what anyone does with the stuff I've uploaded - I put it up for people to have, and that's what's being proposed here. My thought is that once we're gone our stuff becomes abandonware and is generally available, unless something like redistribution on specific sites was prohibited in the documentation. Payware would be different, since there's money involved and most dead people have heirs and estates that would have a claim on a product and any income it might generate. With freeware there's nothing at stake.

    Hi Mick. I didn't know it would be that much work to change the drone from yellow to orange, I was hoping it would be a quick change. but yes, if it is a pain I agree it isn't worth the time. I do appreciate you replying, and I do appreciate the yellow drone! Thanks! Bill
