    When his wife passed some years ago he and i communicated frequently as he struggled with the loss. We got to know one another beyond the forums as we worked on several projects together. I have to echo Kelticheart's comments regarding appreciating Talon's no-nonsense attitude and his prowess and passion in mission building. He'll be missed... DJ

    What an awful way to start a new week....:dispirited: I could not believe the title of the thread. After Talon's last crisis, reading about his slow recovery gave me the illusion he was going to be better... Please, accept my deepest condolences, Hiede. This is indeed a bad loss for all of SOH community, Talon's contribution to our common passion for flight and simulated air combat was enormous. His historically accurate mission writing gave us some of the best sensations about how it must have been back then. His no-nonsense attitude towards other SOH members might have raised an eyebrow or two here, yet I always thought that directness is born of honest minds, while diplomacy, more often than not, hides the real thoughts of a person. I tend to mistrust 'diplomatic' people,...

    I know he loved IL2-1946 and used to frequently fly on line with it. Al (AKA Talon) passed away last week. Here is the thread about it: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?93227-Talon-passed-away

    Hey guys, I know that Talon was as big in CFS3 as he was in CFS2. Please feel free to pay your respects...either in the linked thread or in this one. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?93227-Talon-passed-away

    Hey guys, In addition to a couple of auto-installer campaigns and the revised Oldenburg airbase, you may notice today that some old downloads are new again. I have included some updates for the Bari and La Spezia packages for Tobob, with now include seaplane takeoff points and airbase.dat entries by kdriver. I will also update my Mission Builder layout package as well as the ETO and MTO support packages, as well as the ETO ports package, to include some new factories and other creations over the past couple of years. I will try to include as many objects as I can (similar to Oldenburg) to cut down your workload.

    Stockplane, Actually, don't. Use the oiltank.bgl that is found in Robert John's link. If you have trouble finding it, I will post it tomorrow for you.

    Hiede, Thanks for letting us know. I had a father who died from COPD brought on by Valley Fever, so I can completely understand how much energy that takes out of you with each breath you take. My father lasted thirteen years after he was diagnosed in 1998. Rest in peace, Al. I will hold you close in my thoughts and prayers. My next screwdriver will be for you. :very_drunk: Additionally, many thanks to all of your contributions to CFS2 over the years.

    Thanks for all the help Fibber. Its really appreciated. I decided to take the day off today. The last couple of days of sleuthing around the PTO wore me out. So I headed up into the back country of east San Diego county and just chilled out! Didn't stumble across any abandoned airfields. Thanks for the links. I will have a nice leisurely look at everything later on tonight. MR

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Scenery Add-Ons Description: This is a quick-and-dirty update to the Oldenburg GSL airfield by David Magnum, (Davmag) whose original work dates back to 2004. When updating the airbase, I used the original layout, and deleted any vehicles and anti-aircraft guns that were included in the original version. When possible or practical, the original airfield objects were replaced with newer models from Wolfi, Xavierb, Lindsay Watt, and Pen32win. Many of the original German buildings from David Magnum were kept. This is not any comment on the work of David Magnum, it's just that the amount of scenery objects available are much greater now than they were when the original version of this airfield was released.

    Yes, indeed, that map was the key to the magic kingdom for sure. Funny little example how following the wrong lead led to a good result. I'm thinking I might put the Langoan project on hold and do Limboeng instead- along with the Makassar-Mandai airfield. Too many choices! Thanks Dave. That was a fun one! MR

    Hi Fibber, Yes, there is. The image that I posted above is from a multi-layered PSP image that I quickly threw togther in PSP7 last night. Olive green runways and blue waterway I drew in hastily by hand. I post another copy here. I did some tweaking to it. I tweaked the rotation on the intel image so that it fit what I knew to be the true north orientation of the underlying image from GoogleEarth (I hope that is so). I also resized it. Some of the roads in the modern image are the same taxiways shown in the intel image so I rotated and resized to fit those taxiways. Then I drew in the runways and river. It is almost a perfect fit and probably as close as we will get. I then used the tweaked image as an overlay in google Earth and drew in polygons where the runways will be located...

    Stockplane, This is a temporary fix, but without any feedback, take these two .bgl files and put them back into the scenedb\inf\scenery folder. (Just remember to delete the filelist.dat file you find in that folder) This should eliminate any error messages until (and if) a permanent solution can be found.

    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 donīt have enough space for a german shepperd, my favorite dog.

    I think itīs important for you to know that until last week, before asking and getting from Talon the link to Caleb Flerkīs 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"
