    Now that is a tempting screenshot. This threat has gotten me interested in Flying "The Hump". I have started collecting information on this subject, and am actually downloading the cbix package. I have recently gotten back in to flight simming, and jumped straight in to participating in the "London to Melbourne Race". As a rookie I did manage to reach Melbourne in time, but have decided to continue the flight as a "round the world" trip, since we already gotten this far. That adventure will continue after the holidays. So, once I have completed that one, I will be going for the Hump experience. Might be fun to do this on a multiplayer level, but let me stop my mind from taking off right here. One thing at a time!

    I think the RFN TACAN package uses the default LSO voices from the Acceleration missions for the English language ships. :ernaehrung004:

    Glad I read this thread. Was interested in that aircraft but none of the Carenado sales I found include it and they still quote the normal $37 price. Got it for $11.39. Wow! :ernaehrung004:

    You can put all blame on me. When the FSX rebuild first started I was trying to get David to combine as many bits on as few textures files as possible. This was afterall a new compile for FSX and not just a portover. Backward compatibility was of no concern on my part. I was only partially successful or it would have been even worse. :ernaehrung004:

    That looks great. I've been on the fence about getting the 337. I think you just pushed my towards the sales page. :ernaehrung004:

    That's good news. Seems nothing is ever really completed until the paperwork is. :ernaehrung004:

    Just got FTX Global + Vector + OpenLC Europe, so my Christmas budget is spent. But I will certainly put this one on my "wish list".

    Can't vouch for accuracy since I didn't do them but here are the A-7E's from VA-195 and VA-192 on board the Aerosoft Kitty Hawk.

    That's exactly what it looks like out there on the way to the Mojave. Cactus, sagebrush, and Joshua trees as far as you can see. I've spend many days out there geocaching. After a while it all looks the same. Only your position relative to the mountains far away changes. Good stuff. :ernaehrung004:

    I've just finished with reading and sending back translation suggestions for the English version of the Restauravia Mirage IIIC manual -- all 56 pages of it. I didn't rewrite the entire thing, just what wasn't obvious as I read it. So it still reads a little like a translation but it should be clear what was meant. If you read the Mirage IIIB manual you are 50% there already. Anyway, it won't be long now. :ernaehrung004:

    I've seen the VA-195 birds on the Aerosoft Kitty Hawk deck. Might be nice to match up the repaint with that cruise. :ernaehrung004:

    I believe FSX provides wing tip vortices for you so you might be able to leave those out completely. As far as AB being tied to the lights years ago (FS9 probably) we had a small invisible gauge that would trigger the AB effect based on throttle position or percentage. It was first available in the old Alphasim forum for the Saab Viggen. Someone may have it still. Another place to learn about effects is of course the FSX SDK. :ernaehrung004:

    Just a coat of paint. Long thread with plenty of reference information (inspirational drawings but also those essential color photos to verify against) :ernaehrung004:

    Groom Lake Simulations on facebook has painted a couple. So far Maverick's plane from the Top Gun movie and the same image was displayed so I suppose that one will follow. He has also done an early VF-84 bird. Facebook page: Mav's bird: VF-84: :ernaehrung004:
