    My pleasure...hope it helps. :encouragement: After all is said and done in MTO scenery addons and updates (if ever LOL!), someone might commission a nice mapping project to ice the cake. :triumphant:

    As usual, nice work Morten...and you also Gaucho on the panel...all of your panels. If i may be permitted, i'd like to offer some constructive critique on using 3D imaging for 2D paneling. As pleasing as this approach may be on the eye, its limitations can be quite aggravating for a panel editing junkie like myself. See, i'm the type who likes to appoint an instrument or switch from my extensive gauge collection to every position shown on a 2D panel bmp. But with 3D imaging, some vital gauge positions are either hidden, semi-hidden or blocked by switches, handles or other cockpit assemblies, e.g. an attitude gauge, compass or clock should not be blocked by a gunsight assembly in 2D mode. Or, in some cases, like both magneto switches shown above, a bit too much eye distance perspective...

    Shadow Wolf, As far as i know, the only contributing scenery designer for the MTO to package maps with his work was Rick (RCAF_Gunner) Rutherford back in '03. His trademark was the 417RCAF series including Italy and N.Afrika. Since his time, others have contributed to the theater, in many cases providing updated versions of the bases that Rick did. So, even though we might be working with updated GSL versions, Gunner's map locations are still useful with them. His maps are sort of rudimentary sketches, unlike the nicely detailed topographic color jobs that Maskrider packed with his PTO work (many thanks for that Chris - i love your work). Maybe you'll find these helpful...

    In a related question: Has anyone published a map of the MTO with the CFS2 bases on it?

    John, I took another stab at it this morning. I included the originals for comparison. I think the flight envelope is closer to specs, except the aircraft still behaves like a flying brick; unstable and requiring a lot of positive elevator. One thing I can try is to use the Air Wrench "estimate control surfaces" feature once I input the length, wingspan, and wing area. Even if the dimensions are a little off for the control surfaces...if CFS2 accepts them and she flies well, will that be okay with you, even if she is not 100% to specs?

    Shoot, BC! This time I can't help you because I never had such problem and I do not remember a discussion about it. Usually, I am good at catching interesting tech threads and save them to my personal CFS2 user's manual. It grew to a three large ring binder books!! I hope someone will be able to dig out that thread, I'll save it immediately. Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    When I was in the NAVY I worked in anti-submarine warfare aboard ships. A couple of times while one of the ships I served on was in the yards at Hunters Point in San Francisco, the opportunity came up to go TAD flying P3-Orions on routine ASW patrols off west coast- monitoring sonabuoys and so forth. It was a treat. The P-3s squadron I flew with was housed in one of the old blimp hangars at Moffet Field. Sad to see them go. MR

    John, Sorry it took twelve bloody days, but life all of a sudden went crazy. This are now calm again, for the moment. I'm afraid scaling this to real specs didn't do much good. The aircraft is very unstable and requires a lot of positive elevator to stay airborne. She's painfully slow, and can be out-accelerated by a gravel truck. Please feel free to tinker. I will try again with AirWrench when I return home.

    Bearcat241, I just sent you a PM on this. I could not reproduce your issue. Moving the cursor over the airfield.dat marker for a given base displays the name. The only thing which comes to mind is that possibly, your airbase.dat file may be out of sequence or have gaps. Aside from that, I too, am stumped.

    Hi, After a couple of weeks of being so busy I haven't had time to breathe, I got around to e-mailing Rhumbaflappy. I am awaiting his response.

    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

Things are not always as they seem - the humans on Planet earth had always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures because they had accomplished so much - the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, while all the dolphins ever did was muck around in the water having a good time. The dolphins, on the other hand, always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures on earth - for precisely the same reasons. - Douglas Adams - "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
