    You are welcome! I can see why others commented so positively the flight behaviour of these FW190A's and F's. I only had the time to install this one for the prop texture work and I was immediately surprised by her responsiveness to flight controls without being a beast to handle. She matches all of what I read and the documentaries I saw about the radial-engined FW190, very manoeuvrable and a joy to fly, a tribute to Kurt Tank's aircraft building art. If you happened to read Cdr. Tom Blackburn account of WWII VF-17 combat tours in the Pacific, you'll probably recognise the comment, as he states that aircraft manufacture is more a matter of art than simple calculations. As you can see from the post below, the full disc version is almost ready. I already started laying down the...

    UncleTgt, Not only is your work outstandingly good, it is also often timely. These will be a great addition to Talon's AVG campaign. Well done! :very_drunk:

    Good morning, Believe it or not, I'm still plugging away on scenery. After the campaign goes into beta testing, I may think about releasing a separate package just for those who want the new city and town GSL scenery. So far, I have completed... France - Montjean-sur-Loire, La Possonnière, Coulommiers, Commercy, Montargis, Gien, Tours, Moulins, Charlons-Sur-Marne, Poitiers, Sully-sur-Loire, Saint Quentin, Péronne, and Corbie. Germany - Rheine and Salzwedel.

    I somehow missed this thread. I agree fully with you, Rami. Had Patton remained at his command post here, the Italian campaign would have ended in the first half of 1944. Perhaps even before D-Day in Normandy. This in turn would have saved thousands of civilian lives, because the SS would have not had the time to fight the partisans and do the reprisal massacres they carried out. Had Roma been seized by the Allies when the opportunity was there, the killing of 300+ people at the Fosse Ardeatine stone quarry out of Roma would have not taken place. Neither the other massacres, which took place about a year later in the Appennini mountains not too far from where I live, at S. Anna di Stazzema first and Marzabotto near Bologna later, would have happened. There would have not been the...

    Thank you Morton! These are the usual works of art you spoiled all of us with over the years! The caramel-coloured light grey skin is a touch of perfection, depicting the extra anti-corrosion measure taken by Imperial Japanese Navy by covering all embarked planes with a clear coat of varnish which gave an amber, caramel-like colour hue. :applause: :applause: :applause: As a matter of fact, in spite of the fact I used the stock livery for some of my repaint works on Zeros and Vals involved in the Pearl Harbour attack, they were not historically correct. I read later in a Japanese webpage, whose link I can post later on, about this practice. Some static model websites even state that the original Mitsubishi and Nakajima factory-applied colour, analysed from wrecks remnants found in...

    Hi Captain Kurt! Thank you for keeping my attention level high! I am testing on both models, because I want to keep some historical fine repaints I found a while ago, uploaded by ChrisN for the FS9 conversion of the CFS2 model. I'll definitely keep the skin pictured above, of an A-8 aircraft flown by "Pipps" Priller. Take a look at the mz/Dedalus' F-8 I/SG4 attached below, she's using the very same texture file, with all the new parts I painted over the Easter w-end. The prop disc animation is working flawlessly and the spinner animation with its spiral painted on is also fine. The VC gunsight also displays correctly. A while ago I mistakenly uploaded a prop disc texture for an Akemi bird where I had deleted the gunsight out of the alpha texture while working on it. I'll try to...

    Ok Gaucho, I won't stretch this too far, but I must say i dont agree with you. You may present the math calculations of the panel line width or the rivet size on a CFS2 model etc etc as much as you like. You may be right. And you are free to paint the Zero by simply dropping a white color onto the texture and claim the panel lines and rivets and details are all there. You just cant see them! But I would not care to download it. These models and textures are not real life. It's actually very simple to me. If it looks good, it's right. It's called artistic freedom. Beside that, photos of surviving Zeros in mint condition clearly shows a lot of panel lines from distance. Then think about a tired ww2 Zero with oil leakage, rust and panels not exactly flush anymore. This is not a...

    I actually "revealed" this little idea years ago here at SOH. Yes , sure they are computer generated. Because many of them are based on and reworked from snapshots of 3D VCs! From all kind of sims actually. And agree, a good 2D cockpit is much better, at least in a combatsim like CFS2, than a crappy 3D VC. But traditionally CFS2 panels were just flat dull instrument holders. So why not mix the best of two worlds, the 2D bitmap's capability for details and the VC's perspective and sense of cockpit "space". Also, there is an enormous amount of pictures and resources on the net. The rest is a mix of tidious combining the bits and pieces and careful handpainting. About the "out of proportion perspective errors", I'm not sure I totally agree with you on that matter, but again, it's maybe...

    Hey, good observation mate. But I really didn't know. I'll remember next time :stung: Yes why not Gaucho_59. I', sure a lot of simmers would like your version too. Generally cleaned up texture and panel bitmaps works better in sims. For example, photos transferred to models unprosessed mostly looks terrible. Me, I always try to keep my textures as close to the real thing as possible, especially regarding colortones. But the digital tools today make endless possibilities. It's all a matter of personal taste. M:encouragement:rton

    GR;
    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"
