    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 Although this thread has some pretty good shots, a lot of them are of texture sets that are no longer current...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 Although a lot of it is very old, and outdated, there is still a wealth of information available!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.

    "Common Systems" is more about ease and low cost of maintenance. The Comet/Nimrod platform may well be a stable platform, but I'm sure the cost of spares has been and will continue to rise due to lack of originals and the cost of manufacturing new parts at such a low volume. On the other hand, any major western airport worth the cost of its runway paint will have plenty of Boeing 737 spares ready in case there's a problem.

    Nice paint scheme, Christoph. I have seen the real plane online that has this paint scheme. I dont know if you noticed, but I setup the exterior paint materials with the option to use Alpha channels. The darker, the higher in reflection quality. So if you want to add some nice reflections in it, just add some dark zones to the Alpha on the paint schemes. For existing Alphas, pick a stock LJ24B paint scheme and open it in PS and select the Alpha channel and copy/paste that into your new one. The really dark zones are the chrome area's. (Optional chrome, white for non-shiney). If you need an interior PSD pack, just email me which one you need and I can upload it. They are quite massive though, like over a gig, so please only pick one or so. Right now I have N802 and N777...

    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.
