    I can't compare FTX or any other since my tightwad tendencies - and modelling preoccupations - have left me on FSX standard scenery for a long time. Now, the autogen objects and ground textures are still bog standard with Freemesh X Europe, but I've just taken the Milviz Sabre on a 300knot VFR flight over country I know very very well and was able to accurately distinguish landmarks and particular river valleys, ranges of high hills and bodies of water where the family recently wandered. In fact, I didn't get lost! Greatly looking forward to buzzing the west coast of Scotland! Gotta dash, they've refuelled me now...

    My wife and I spent the day at Roy E. Ray Airpark, located near Bayou La Batre, AL. A Navy buddy of mine lives there, and has a Stearman. My wife enjoyed about an hour's ride, even experiencing what it is like to fly in formation with some other Stearmans, while flying over nearby Fairhope, AL airport (who was also hosting an event). A variety of aircraft were there. Most enjoyable day! There was an unusual twin engine aircraft. My buddy said it was a Dornier?

    Owen you can relax, that's not even close to beginning to commence approaching competition. You can still tell what kind of aircraft that is.

    Thanks for the feed back Joe. Funny when I tried to download the attachment in IE to test it all I got was some goofy looking text document. Working on doing the whole Yanco prewar carrier fleet US side first. Some Wip shots.

    Time to renew my version of FSX. It had become worn and weary like this operator. Cleared out all vestiges of Flight Simulator. Said goodbye to 2B2 Plum Island. So long Beech Staggerwing and nice gentle J-3 Cub. I tried to put in FSX and it would not load. Maybe the disk was dirty. I washed it off, checked for scratches but no joy. It wouldn't respond. Well on to Plan B. I had bought a combo FSX and Acceleration for $15 bucks. I pulled off the wrapper and away we go. Or so I thought. I had no better luck than with Plan A. Now I've sent a good 8 hours trying to figure out how I had gone astray. Forgive me Father, because I know not what I do. Plus it was bedtime. I'm laying there and somehow through my stroke-ridden brain it came to me. Didn't Microshaft sell out to something called...

    Speaking of CV-6 I need some beta testers to check out some revised prewar deck textures I am working on. On my machine I am getting a lot of pixilation looking lengthwise down the deck. I need to know if it's my crappy GPU or the actual textures causing it. Back up the original Ranway15_(CV5) dds file in your VEH_Yorktown_yanco_CV5AI Prewar texture and install the one below. Any comments welcome. EDIT: Oh well looks like I an too dumb to upload a zip file anyone interested just shoot me a pm and I will mail you the zip. I hope. EDIT:EDIT: Also too dumb to delete the bad zip ignore the zip file it's all weird.

    I can confirm FSTramp as a problem in relation to the Bounty gauges. After install of FSTramp in P3D v2.5 I sailed about a quarter mile and then the ship stalled dead in the water. Nothing I did would get it started again.

    I don't have FSTramp in P3D ( I tried the demo in FSX) but I would like to have it. I will download it tomorrow and try it with the Bounty Beta 3 and post my results. That is if the demo is still available.

    I tested the Bounty beta 3 in the latest version of P3D v2.5 and all worked as advertised. A great endeavor on Milton and Rob's part that has been very enjoyable for me and I'm sure quite a few others. :encouragement: Now let's see if we can get a few 72 gun frigates modeled and tie them into the TacPack! :playful:

    I'll do what I can about that story. Right now I'm kind of busy looking for a new job, but will see what I can uncover.
