    Oh yea!! But there are folks still using Older computers whom this would be a Great problem. I still build most of my Missions on My 7 year old E-machine, so as not to over build them and cause our brothers with the older computers problems. In my newer Win 7 machine I can place larger numbers of aircraft. Even have gone to the trouble to upload missions for older/newer computers depending on the speed of your machine you could chose the set that worked the best for your needs. As more of our Brothers and sisters get newer machines I will continually increase the Aircraft numbers to match the Historical patterns. I have missions for myself with as many as 120-170 aircraft in the missions. Bomber streams miles long and lots of Fighters Both allied(American) and Axis (German)...

    Thank you Master BorekS, I have this in the original Full length program. Dogfights - Episode 26 Secret Weapons This "Dogfights" program Has two different events covered for the Me 163b. I have 4 missions for this (historical) researched Only 5 missions had any success it seems, but only 16 aircraft were ever able to get into combat. JG 400 being the most successful unit.

    Oh Yea!! Working on several historical missions <Title> ETO Me 163b Schubert B-17 intercept HH 200 <Overview>***Limited fuel load of 35 percent. to make this mission realistic** 24 Aug, 1944 Jg 400 Schubert intercepted B-17 bombers bound towards Mersburg Germnay. He engaged the bombers from above making two passes, engaging and downing one B-17 each pass, on the bomber formation.. <Intelligence>Inbound enemy bomber formations. Take off and engage the bombers. Climb to 30,000 feet. (9150 meters) Glide back to base and land.. When you make hits from 1000m to 100 meters the 30mm cannon hitting the Bomb Bay makes for some Big bangs.. (First draft of this mission, will adjust as needed on the fuel load need approximately 8-10 mins max.) Win 7 machine

    Paul was someone you recognised as properly part of the FS scene and he'll really be missed. My condolences to his family.

    FSX Gold. That way you get Acceleration and the latest SDK to include Acceleration-compatibility.

    Only FSX Deluxe or Gold have the SDK bundled with them, so you can build and paint your model but won't be able to export it to FSX without it...

    How much spare time do you have? You're going to need plenty plus a fair bit of patience! Do you have FSX Deluxe or FSX Gold Edition? The software development kit (SDK) is supplied with these and includes the plugin for Gmax to export models to FSX. Gmax is a free download and is wonderfully capable, but takes a lot of learning - as does the whole modelling process. FSDS from Abacus Software is an alternative for not too much money but don't spend anything more than that: there is another modelling tool used by some (including me) known as 3ds Max and it is appallingly expensive. Blender is another free alternative which is becoming used for FSX by a few since the tools were developed recently. For everything else, unless you already have some expensive software, stay cheap....

    Sounds like a problem with the model's pylons: if the nodes are missing from the pylons the weapon never shows until it's released or fired. I remember Jaycee having some fun with this. For the textures I dunno... edit: the nodes are called mount0, mount1 etc

    Looks a very tidy model and systems-intensive: should go down well with the AVSim crowd.

    Those are some beautiful screen shots Master Wiekniera!! Very grateful for the Masters who have made all of this possible. Master Ankor and Master Gecko, and the ETO team for the work I am using. Many Masters have worked very hard to improve our beloved Combat flight simulator 3 and expansions of late. onward and upward. :applause: :applause: :applause:
