    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.

    When the advanced info map stops popping up those little airbase name balloons when the mouse cursor is placed on the base markers, how do we restore that? I always thought this was a nifty little tool for free-flight pop-up navigation when you don't have a hard-copy map in your lap and you want to fly from one point to another without exiting the sim to get a fix on point B. I remember a thread discussion we all had here some while in the past where we discussed the solution to recovering this feature which seems to work in a clean install, but sometimes stops working in fully customized setups with lots of scenery addons and a large airbase.dat file. As i recall, the main topic of the thread was not about this particular problem, but some other. This came up later in the...

    Well, I see that the plow driver dumb idiot disease strikes all over the world! You were at my house Rami, plow drivers always build a wall of snow against the entrance of my front yard. They could lift the plow for just a few inches to limit the side dump, plow and then come back to push the rest forward without accumulating on the side, but they'll be damned if they did it! Just to prove a point, I once tried it driving a neighbour's farm tractor equipped with a plow. It only takes a few minutes more and it's not a difficult manoeuvre, but they could care less. Rush the job and get the dough for it quick, it's the name of the game. If words could kill, I would have massacred already a bunch of them! The bad news is that once they have plowed it, it's not powdery soft snow...

    Good morning, I would have mentioned it on Tuesday, but in the teeth of the Nor'Easter, it passed me by. Please take a moment to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz on January 27th, 1945. Tuesday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. May all those who have suffered such atrocities, be them Jews, Christians, Muslims, those in Darfur, or any other people experiencing genocide be remembered and honored as the rst of us contemplate how to prevent this from ever happening again.

    Navy Chief, Hey...thanks for bringing this up. One of my most vivid childhood memories was staying home sick that day from school and watching the launch live on TV. When the vehicle exploded, I remember asking my father what happened...and I remember him staring blankly at the TV and not responding for several minutes.

    Best of luck to you for recovering your pc fully! Every time my pc hiccups I have the fits, because I have been tampering with my CFS2 for 13 years now! I use two external HDDs to make two exact copies of everything I have, from all the original downloads to a full, up-to-date install of CFS2. I just did one full backup last night. I live in an area prone to lightning bolts, especially during summertime. l have double surge suppressants and a UPS, but I do not trust them fully, they are there just in case I am caught out of my house. As soon as weather forecast calls for possible thunderstorms, I take the time to unplug everything from the wall sockets, starting from the pc power chord and ranging from TV+DVD recorder+satellite decoder to my stereo, including the telephone line. Any...

    Many of these old airfield locations can also be found using GoogleEarth. Especially when you know the general location and if the area hasn't been built up too much since the time of their use- probably much more likely in the PTO than in the ETO. But you never know. The tell tale signs of disturbed earth remain behind for a long time. Lots of long abandoned, 60+ years abandoned, WWII PTO airfields are still very much visible using GoogleEarth. Many times the runways, taxiways and aprons have been incorporated into the surrounding urban design and are still quite easy to pick-out. The research on these old fields is always a good deal of the fun in making the scenery. Good luck! MR

    Hey guys, Spent four hours shoveling myself and three neighbors out...five minutes after I finish, the plow driver comes, and in the process of plowing out the street, buries two-thirds of our driveways once again. :a1451: :rocket: :censored:

    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"
