    One thing they stress is a video card with 4GB of ram...I don't even come close. The Nvidia 970 is looking mighty good right now...now accepting donations LOL!!! I have to admit to being surprised how well this old QX9650 and GTX 285 runs FSX and X-Plane 10.3.

    Here's the way I do the that part of the process: 1) Export as Quake III (MD3) to my MD3 Folder 2) Open the MD3 in LithUnwrap 3) Select Import to the two popup windows 4) Save the 24-bit bmp in my UVW Map folder 5) Apply the new bmp to the project

    I have to agree Bob; awesome textures that look great in FSX and FS9. Was doing some updating on the FSX side and I find myself staring at details .... lost in time. :-)

    Thanks for the comments. You bet; wet is good. :-) Finally got her working and looking correct in FSX as well as FS9. Invested yesterday and today in getting the cockpit basics in place: overhead panel, main panel and console, pedals, yoke stem, yoke arms and steering, seats and pilot/copilot, and surrounding infrastructure. Next up is getting the various overhead levers and switches in place.

    I have the Italian scheme and will send it to you. :-) EDIT: I actually have 10 others waiting in the queue, 6 by SteveB and 4 by Martial FERON. :-) Some are Cuba, SAAF, USAAF, Civilian, Flotille 6F, Escadrille 11S.1, Escadrille 11S.3, Escadrille 11S, , PAFANG, and 3 WIP. These paints will require some minor changes before they can release them due to required changes to the engine intake maps.

    You guys had it easy :-) In my first F-80 flight with nice clouds from a storm below, my video card choked. The rest of the flight though uneventful had these mysterious clouds around me. :-) Sometimes the clouds were trees, sometimes gauges, sometimes ground textures. Fortunately, the landing was uneventful.

    Back in the early 90s I flew a friend's TB9 out of Riverside, CA. to Livermore, CA., fixed landing gear and I think 160hp...great aircraft!!! If I hadn't already partnered on a Cessna with another friend I would have bought that Socata. Lionheart made a Socata Tobago and Trinidad that was pretty nice. I lost that hard drive and the plane Lionheart made. Looking forward to seeing this one become reality. Ted

    I recently built a computer similar to your configuration for a friend who had limited money to spend and only flew flight sims. The difference was I opted for the i7-875k lga 1156 and added 8GB of DDR3 1600 Corsair Dominator and a refurb Gigabyte 970 video card. It ran P3D, X-Plane 10.3, and FSX with DX10 exceptionally well. The total cost of the rig was less than a $1000.00. FSX was nearly maxed and still avg 38 fps. I ran it on unlimited for frame rates the lowest was 25 over New York, and Seattle on 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD-no stutters detected. He did have FTX Global loaded. I thought the 970 was an awesome card considering it only cost $189.00. I oc'd the 870k to 4.13GHz and it ran just great. That was 6 months ago and it has been problem free. I wouldn't worry too much about...

    I may have answered the question of the Dornier 335. I assumed that the version you listed (FS9 Freeware) was a full version, especially when I saw the size. Since it didn't have anything but textures after all that time downloading. . .I'm now downloading the SimTech version. . .this is probably the base model which the textures were an addition to. This has to be the largest freeware download I've ever done, lol. . .reaching almost 250 meg. lol
