    Thanks Larry - I'll give it a try while I keep looking. I had Eric's wheeled version a decade or so back and I remember how well it flew. I was hoping for the same success with the amphib version.

    If you can't find the Eric Dantes version Tom P.A.D. made four different Twin Otter packs which might be worth a look. http://www.premaircraft.com/new_aircraft_menu/index.html They include the amphib version and come with either a panel or a VC, depending on the pack chosen.

    IIRC that's crossram's model and it hasn't been mapped. Are there any texture files in the download? something.dds files, that is. If there's none then it definitely hasn't been mapped and there's no way to do that without his source files, sorry.

    While I'm at it, let me ask if anyone knows where I can get my hands on the Eric Dantes Twotter Amphibian model. I can find the land version with the panel update easy enough, but all I can find related to the amphib version are repaints.

    While looking for some good desktop backgrounds, I came across these pics that look to be from the same location. The problem is, I can't find where that location is. The first thing I'd like to know is where these were snapped, and then I'd like to know if there's an freeware scenery pack that does it justice. Any ideas out there?

    Beat me to it Dimus, and it's a favourite model for me tricky enough to land/takeoff and heaps of performance. :wiggle: Fun!

    Thanks Daniel, I'd heard this was possible but didn't know how to do it. If it can also improve Gmax in the memory department that would be welcome! (Win7 64-bit and 8 GB here...)

    You know it's hard for someone that has not been to sea and experinced every type of it's conditions to get a feel for what happens. However, taking pictures during a steep roll is hard to take. Your busy trying to stand up and not go over the side of the ship or land in the cat walk. But these pictures show what I'm getting at.

    "Imaging" is sort-of a deluxe version of backing up your files. It's actually taking a full snapshot of your entire hard drive and cloning it to a backup. If something crashes, you restore your last backed up image. Of course, this takes specialized software, including a bootable disk or thumb drive. Also, depending on the amount of data, the process can take hours. But... I can tell you from experience, the effort can be worth it. My last desktop suffered a critical corruption of some can't-live-without-it system file and my backed up image was the only way to get back up and running again! Edit: Some of these look promising. I'd look deeper, but I no longer have the external storage space to use them....

    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.
