    Without checking elsewhere do the Kiwi birds on the wing insignias typically point out or in? ... Went and checked anyway, they seem to face forwards in all positions. :ernaehrung004:

    I see that DTG has pushed the E-2C update. Everything on the E-2C should work now. All they wanted was the ailerons corrected. Everything else was a bonus to them. Not mentioned because we didn't mention it to them (since they aren't keen on schemes for their released versions) is the remapped rudders. :ernaehrung004:

    Okay, I tested FSUIPC and the HMS Bounty in FSX-SE the following way: 1: I loaded FSX-SE and departed from Yakutat KYAK in the Carenado C172, for which the axis are set up using my payware version of FSUIPC (latest!). Then I closed FSX and added the HMS Bounty and it's effects files. 2: Started FSX-SE and loaded the HMS bounty at 2Y3. I set wind direction and speed, raised anchor, lowered the sails and went on my way.

    I do use FSUIPC in FSX SE, but do not have the bounty in that hangar atm. Can give that a try tomorrow morning if you'd like. Is there anything specific you are looking for?

    If you read this entire thread and you will see that this E-2C does not belong to Virtavia, it belongs Dovetail Games on Steam. And as such it has been encrypted to only work on their version of FSX and not the old boxed FSX or P3D. Again, ... sorry. And sorry again, I don't paint fiction (unless it's a Mirage). :ernaehrung004:

    TAD means Temporary Additional Duty. Similar if not the same as what we called TDY in the Army. What about the Virtavia EA-6B if the Razbam one is getting long in the tooth? :ernaehrung004:

    I'm waiting for Phil to get the go-ahead from DTG before he sends me the texture masters. My part of the textures are finished, just waiting for the panel line and stencil layers. The Israel Air Force E-2C were painted in the two grays the F-15s were painted in so not just a matter of painting on the Star of David insignia. Something you should realize thought, this model only works in the FSX-SE version from Dovetail Games via Steam. On sale now by the way. :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks Cees and DaveB. Been getting familiar with Rob Richardson's scimitar, but couldn't locate any AI carriers. Yeah, I know.... Going to be another learning curve, but enjoy trying new things. Gonna give this another shot after the camping weekend.

    Probably a dumb question, but how do I know the location of a carrier when departing from land?

    Hardly. We're just getting started. You chose to bug out too soon. Please don't ruin it for the rest of everyone else. Things are getting fixed through this discussion. No spiral downward. I'm trying to bring positive reports with each post. Let it run the normal 10 days please. :ernaehrung004:

    The vertical fins themselves were not mirrored. They were reversed on the starboard sides which is an inconvenience but is not the end of the world and certainly would not put a stop to repaints. The issue was that one texture for the back half of the fin, the moving split rudder, had been reused for all four surfaces. This worked perfectly for the customer's requirements, and anyone who just wanted to fly it as is, but not so much for us repainters. Anything that takes up half the surface us going to have some unusual markings in it so that had to be fixed if any repaints were going to happen. A couple fellow simmers on FB pointed this out to me and I forwarded their example images to Phil. Based on the new MDL file I checked out last night that has issue has been corrected. ...

    ColoKent replied to a thread the end is near in The NewsHawks
    Wasn't there a point back around '94 where it got so hot in PHX that airliners were grounded-- because their performance charts didn't go high enough to deal with the high temps? Ah matter...wife and I are considering Scottsdale as a future winter haven from Colorado...I've spent tons of time in that town, and I LOVE it. :very_drunk: Kent
