    Sorry folks, but I left a file out of the pack. :uncomfortableness: :apologetic: I realised yesterday, too late, that the zip I uploaded does not include the advertised aircraft.cfg with the effect triggering switch and the belly landing entries. I paid so much attention to enter each version of the correct dp file that this one slipped by. I'll try editing the upload window and re-upload the correct pack. Hopefully it will go through without the need to bother our librarian. Otherwise I'll have to ask Rami to fix it. I apologise for the inconvenience. Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    Braveheart, I just uploaded the entire installer to the library again, and made sure to included the missing folder.

    Braveheart, Wow. Talk about a gaping hole in the armor. Yikes! :p87: You'd think after seventy some-odd downloads another user might have stumbled onto that and said something. I used the airfields on Borneo and Java by Onnogras as a replacement for ones by Xavierb and MaskRider, so that's critically important. Also, the oil and port facilities at Batavia and Surabaya require his included coastlines, so this is a class-A oversight. I have attacked the folder you need, and am rebuilding the installer now. Just for kicks, I decided to swap out the Mas "Shoho" light carrier for the Usio Ryujo, which is far more authentic. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! :banghead:

    Bob, It would be wonderful to see these for myself. I have the names of ships in the Japanese task force all set, and would love to bring another untold story to life, just like Port Darwin.

    I took a look at the air file (that I attached above post) in MB and had AI issues also. I think too much time to resolve that air file issue for AI and probably more trouble than it's worth. Glad to read UncleTgt air file has more suitable AI performance.:encouragement: Best Regards

    TheBookie, I know how to do that as well, I included multiple cloud decks as high as 30k for the 20th Fighter Group campaign. I was sent some missions by Kdriver, and figure if we can throw this package together, it could be another homage to Talon, just as the Port Darwin pack will be.

    TheBookie, I will send you an email or PM later today. Kdriver sent me some missions that may work very well with this. I also know the composition of Kakuta's / Hosogaya's force.

    Morning! I got the Catalina working as an AI crate with UncleTgt's files, although hopefully Peperez can work his magic at some point in the future. It won't be long now...UncleTgt is putting a little more spit-and-polish on the Catalina textures, though I have the beta version. Kdriver is building a little scenery right now so that I can build one last mission for this package, but otherwise it's ready to go. I ran the auto-installer program and wrote the readme files already to speed the project along a little further. All I'll have to do is tweak the auto-installer once the last parts are in place. Hang tight for a few more days, we're just about there! :biggrin-new:

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Effects Add-ons Description: Alternative blurred propeller textures and a Green Ghost style gauge-controlled exhaust effect for SOH member Allen's Grumman FM-2 Wildcat, developed from the stock F4F-4 Wildcat and The B24Guy's overhaul of the same model. You can choose among 4 types of propeller discs/blades, either unmarked or Hamilton Standard branded, both in full and broken disc versions. Besides: a) the enclosed aircraft.cfg offers exhaust effect triggering and belly landing capability;

    Hey guys. I'll have to try those packages one at a time. I end up with a PBY which slowly falls to the ocean as an AI flight and then blows up on it's own. :dizzy:

    Hello again, Hey - Between UncleTgt's Catalina files and Oglivie's, I was able to graft together a working airfile with the flight characteristics Oglivie described in his post. I also found a couple of errors in the panel.cfg for the Catalina and fixed them, which I will include in the package for you. I have attached it in the meantime. UncleTgt worked on the .dp file and includes weapons loadouts and fixed the combat boxes.

    Good afternoon, Hey guys, Just completed modifying the four Japanese carrier strike missions that were part of the first wave so that they attack from the correct direction, as well as have a correct takeoff point where the Japanese carriers were when they launched. RobH did a FDG P-40 skin at my request in the colors of Lt. Ostreicher for the missions, and UncleTgt, as you can see took care of the PBY and the KM P-40e, so no matter which version you choose, there is an authentic skin. Both these, as well as John's Catalina skin, will be included. I was going to stop at ten, but Kdriver is building the airstrip and rescue mission on Bathurst Island, as well as the East End moorings for the PBY Catalinas that were destroyed. So, it looks like I have one, possibly two missions...

    Hi, When trying to approve your skin after changing the upload to a .zip file format, I deleted it instead of approved it, and do not have another copy of it. Could you please upload it, with the picture, one more time? Also, please do not use hyperlinks connecting to a location off-site. Please upload it directly to SOH. Sorry for the inconvenience, I've been entered as a finalist for Trojan's "boner of the week" award. :banghead: Thanks,

    Hello Rami, I've attached some files that may work for the PBY-2 (I didn't have time to check AI performance though). Based on my publications for the PBY-2 the performance of the air file should be close: Rotation and landing approach speeds are around 80 knots. Top speed should be somewhere close to specs (listed as 178 mph/155 knots at 8,000 feet), fuel load of 1750 gallons, and empty weight of 14,568 lbs. I have also enclosed an fx file if you wish to check out also. Included in the aircraft config for this air file the following entries: cruise_lift_scalar=1.0 parasite_drag_scalar=1.35 induced_drag_scalar=1.0

    Here, I just found another video of a very recent, last August 16th, Freccie Tricolori performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg4SPYiVlzo The place is Peschiera del Garda, on the southern shore of lake Garda. It shows very well how far and how high they fly from the audience. All of the performance takes place over the water of the lake. Cheers! KH :ernaehrung004:

    Jaxon and Shessi, all of this brings to my memory the horrendous collision among three planes of the Freccie Tricolori (Tricolour Arrows) Italian Air Force aerobatic team at Ramstein airbase on August 28th, 1988, during the Flugtag '88. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_sZwJQy9ic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX6io7WD0zg While two planes crashed on the runway, the third plummeted on the audience, killing 67 people and wounding another 346.

    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"
