    Other than Kelti still doesn't run CFS2 on a Win7, or later, platform. Thanks for your faith in me, Blood_Hawk, but I run CFS2 in XP Pro SP3, I couldn't really be of any help since I do not know how our senior sim behaves with Win7. On the other hand I fully agree with UncleTgt when he says that a larger size prop texture would affect animation rate negatively. I had started tinkering with some 512 x 512 textures a while ago, both because some models were born with them and because I was attracted by the finer texturing appearing on the screen. A part than, for my Jurassic painting skills, it is waaay more difficult texturing a blurred disc in that doubled size and it takes three times as long to complete it, I did notice a substantial drop in fps when I placed several planes...

    I couldn't find better words than Fibber's. Your sailing trip over high seas will be the best imaginable tribute to Al's departure. In the middle of the Ocean, where he loved to be. I'll send my form of prayer to his memory in a couple of weeks, when I'll be snorkelling over the coral reefs of some of the French Antilles small islands: Marie-Galante and Iles des Saintes, just off of the southern coast of Guadeloupe island. I'll think of Al, sure he'd have shared my awe and joy of witnessing part of the beauty the oceans yields. Have a wonderful summer, too, Hiede and safe sailing. Stefano :wavey:

    Real nice repaint Brian! :encouragement: May I suggest to darken both Dark Green and Dark Earth colours a wee bit? Your best guideline are your fabulous skins for AH's Hurricane MkI for CFS2 and even your YAS Spit first repaints. They both match very, very closely the Humbrol historical RAF enamels I used as a kid on my 1/72 models. Humbrol is a British company, who am I to question their knowledge about RAF WWII camo colours? :jump: Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    Hi Stockplane, the attached is what I meant. Morton designed it in this fashion for Stuart Green's G4M1 Betty, following a comment made by a Japanese SOH member, I believe Talos, because Morton had originally placed the pilot (CFS2 view) in the left seat instead. It's still available at Morton's webpage here: https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=7f2604cfe3f60274#cid=7F2604CFE3F60274 this 2d, 1024 x 768 panel is inside the Betty repaint pack.

    Hi everybody! There's a lot of work going on here on aircraft 2d panels, MVG and I are involved in some of it. Yesterday he brought to my attention an historical fact that I want to share with everybody here, it's very interesting. http://www.acontinuouslean.com/2013/04/05/a-better-way-to-screw/ Philips-head screws were not present on German and Italian aircraft of the 1930's. The blueprint shown in the link above indicates they were US-patented in 1936.

    Hold your horses, the two of you! Un attimo di calma! First of all, Stockplane: I do not expect a new panel in lesser time than the Lord created earth. I do not want a new panel at all from you, I just wanted to spare criticism to your beautiful work for a silly, yet historically sound, detail. Ti volevo aiutare, non criticare. There's no fiction here, the main pilot seat on Japanese bombers WAS on the right side of the cockpit, you weren't around a few years ago when this subject caused a long discussion here. Do you want solid proof of what Manuele and I have been trying to suggest you?

    Rich Nagel, I can't imagine why you are seeing these, but the only aircraft you should be able to see on a stock install are the F4U, the F6F, the F4F, the P-38, the A6M2 Zero, the A6M5 Zero, and the Nakajima N1K2_J. You should also see the P-40 addon from the Pearl Harbor pack. All of the other CFS2 aircraft are AI, and should not be seen. All of the other files are either CFS1 addons and/or FS addons and should be junked.

    Hi stockplane, it's very simple, look below, I just copied your screenshot and did an horizontal flip to it. That's the right pilot seat, obviously now every label is mirror-like reversed. All you have to do is take your work, do the same thing and place the instruments according to the right side of the Betty panel as shown in Hisato Nakada's photo. Manuele pointed out to you that the presence of the attitude gauge on the right side, missing on the left side, confirms the right side is the main pilot, or aircraft commander, seat. Done! :running: Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    Rich, Can you verify first that the aircraft DO show up normally in free flight? And can you also list which aircraft do not show up?

    Hi Stockplane, a very nice job on the Betty panel. Yet, I remember a discussion here a few years ago involving Morton, where someone objected that Betty pilots and the majority of Japanese bombers, sat on the right instead of sitting on the left seat, as in the rest of world aviation. You might want to investigate this, the main pilot sat on the right seat and the co-pilot, when present, sat on the left. Therefore the 2d bitmap should be turned 180 degrees around, to get the same effect. Other than this small detail, your panels are very, very good.

    Dasuto247, For the most part, yes. However, some authors request their specific written permission to do so, and occasionally you will be denied. If you are going to use the files of a user here at SOH, it's always proper to get their permission beforehand. Download either the Fall Weiss campaign package or the 20th Fighter Group to see how I set up mine, if you wish.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Scenery Add-Ons Description: This is a generic stone lighthouse that Steve2112 created some four years ago in this thread: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?50012-Generic-Lighthouse-For-CFS2-Pre-Release-Beta-Announced%85 He suggested improvements for it, as are explained in the thread. If anyone would like to continue tinkering with this beta model, I believe that will preserve the spirit of his generous intent for it to be available for the CFS2 community. This is being released as a beta project for the time being to finish the work that steve2112 began. As such it is strictly freeware, and only authorized to be uploaded to www.sim-outhouse.com.

    How are things down there in Beaufort land? Been awhile since I have been there to see "Jerry" at Discovery Diving.
    I have installed your Forts and just have to comment that they are FANTASTIC! Now, not to sound like a dolt, which is why this isn't a Public message, but where do you put the "US PILOT" that is part of the Forts D/L? I have put it in the "models" section and met with negative results. I keep getting "Pilot not found" Do you want it in the "aircraft section" just like TL's crewmen?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    No GR. I threw only in HS.

    My choice for Discus came from Symphiosidon Discus, a tropical fish, and one of my "pets" that my kids and wife like a lot. Unfortunately I don´t have enough space for a german shepperd, my favorite dog.

    I think it´s important for you to know that until last week, before asking and getting from Talon the link to Caleb Flerk´s dp tutorial, a dp file for me was like reading a chinesse document.

    But fortunately there is always something new to learn every day.

    Ghostrider I tried your operation Hailstone mission ( Truk strike 1E ) and my computer just handled it as far as the frame rate goes. I am using a e6400 dual core with a evga 8800gt video card. I think that was the most intense mission I have flown with cfs2 so far. A fantastic looking mission. olaf
