    A related anecdote: Part of my job in the Navy (as an AME) was removing scratches from canopies and windshields. It was a tedious task. Done with various grades of emory cloth, as I recall. Too much pressure while sanding, and you made the problem worse. Too much time sanding, and the light reflection through the canopy would be altered. There was a calculation they used that determined if a canopy replacement was necessary if a certain percentage of the canopy was scratched, and/or the depth of the scratch or scratches were too deep.

    It would probably be a good idea to start a new EVO 2.0 screenshot and release thread. SOH hasn't had a decent update on the status of the project in some time. Although this thread has some pretty good shots, a lot of them are of texture sets that are no longer current... And it has some belly aching from yours truly about the American Southwest, which concern has now been addressed to my satisfaction. I rather enjoy the grand canyon with these textures...

    There's several of their performances on YT. I've even seen one where one of the members goofed up. He had to drop for ten right there on the spot!

    Not yet - I've barely had time to keep up with the forum for the last few days - much less fire up the Sim...:banghead:

    It's actually a good idea to move the gauge cab of each of the fs9 vintage planes into the main gauges folder. That will allow other planes to make use of them without having to have several copies scattered around.

    to get the LRDG Chevy to display properly, go to the Panel.cfg file and at the very bottom you will find this SIZE_X=8191 SIZE_Y=3366 change it to SIZE_X=8191 SIZE_Y=6143

    Henry Street shared this link with me earlier this evening. Although a lot of it is very old, and outdated, there is still a wealth of information available! Thanks Henry! NC

    I haven't used either of these addons much, but am having fun trying them out. FsTakeoffTrainer V1.0 and Lord of the Landing V1.7 Lord of the Landing allows you to place your aircraft in final approach instantly. Great for practice.

    I think the best way to go with mesh is freeware. Use Flightsim's advanced search and select the FS9 Scenery category, use the keyword mesh, and sort by downloads. Also search for anything with the name Justin Tyme attached to it.

    My guess is that the .ori filetype suffix is short for "original," renamed by an auto-installer that placed replacements for the stock files. The likely scenario would be to script the renaming of the original files prior to inserting the replacements. Without renaming the originals, the replacements would simply overwrite the originals, causing them to be lost if the addon was ever removed - in which case, the user would have to dig into the install CD's in order to find the missing files (something this forum has seen many times). That script could just as easily have used the .bak suffix, which might have made more sense to many users.

    I did a couple one Marine in gull grey/white and one Navy in blue they are uploaded here. Neither one shiny (no alphas) at all as any alpha changes made no difference. If someone can incorporate the alphas into the model I can go back and add an alpha channel.

    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.
