    I've had similar problems over the years with that auto-complete issue. I narrowed it down to having multiple programs open at the same time and one of the background programs caused the selection tool to auto-complete whenever it did a refresh or some other function. I suspect it was my modelling program(s) but I was never able to get a definitive answer. I try to only have PS open on it's own now which seems to cut down the issue but then again I bet it's almost a year since I last had PS open! :pop4::dizzy:

    I just think it would add yet another interesting option. I personally do not know how to incorporate it, but DO remember what it was like to be a back seat rider, and hear the communication between the pilot and GCA. Very cool. NC

    Use the Me262 as a starting point since it's another German twin jet. Contact points are really easy to do, once the model is repositioned - model zero point should be on centreline and 25% of wing chord back from the leading edge. Send it my way once repositioned and I'll set the contact points if you like. Flight model is another story, but perhaps someone has some practise with this?

    Lets hope you get a favourable reply Borek, it would be a relatively straightforward job as you say. :-)

    I can't tell you how many times in pilot training I heard, "The other right." I have know instructors who claimed to have made a student hold something in their free hand to help remember Right from Left.

    Dagnabbit! These high-poly tyre treads aren't even mapped to the advantage of the details! :biggrin-new:

    Hmm! Quite high poly for a CFS3 basic model without LODs, but a fair bit of simplifying can be done without mangling the model - for example the recess under the fuselage is a thousand polys straight off and it simply doesn't need to be and the wheels have the tread modelled directly instead of textured. There is also scope for adding more detail to the cockpit itself! If you've looked at the model and compare the 'pit with this pic from the sole surviving Blitz you'll see what I mean: (larger, much larger version available on request!)

    I am involved with a organization called Virtual Flight Academy. VFA is a non-profit organization that is working with the Navy and Air Force to try and help pre-pilot training students. VFA has enlisted the services of retired pilots to help the young pilot students. As such, I have had the opportunity to talk to several current USAF flight instructors, and twice fly the T-6 simulator. We have been developing a list of what we believe we can do with these students to help prepare them for the real aircraft flights. The consensus is that we can make them more comfortable in the cockpit by helping them learn the checklists, controls, and general flow of flying. In test cases we have taken a student up in Prepar3D and the T-6 via multiplayer. The VIP takes the student through the...

    Speaking of VLSO, Paddles emailed me recently and mentioned that a new version (not just a update) would be released soon! NC

    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.
