    Update: The L-18 project is living and breathing and making headway every day. Along with significant gauge and radio progress, (thank you Rob), Tom and I have been working everyday to improve the flight model for the commercial airliners. She is such a sweet hand flyer, not sure you will care much about an AP. :-) Tom has nailed the performance on these aircraft with both of the modeled engines. Just trying to tweak out the slow approach and flaps responses to finalize that side of it. I have broken out the military variants separate from the commercial ones to give us more flexibility in load-outs, weights, configurations, and modeling differences. Once we get the Republic XP47's and XP-72 out the door, this will get more active.

    Just so you know, Nigel continues work on the xp-72 textures and the xh47h sounds while I am working on package's gauges, documentation, and miscellaneous tweaks. Tom has tweaked the xp-72 FM a bit more and I believe we are ready on that front. Duckie has wrapped up his xp-47h textures and paint kit and that will be available very soon. Once this is done, we will be ready for beta for the 3 aircraft.

    Dave I am in the middle of a gamer build right now for a guy and trying to get it done and tested this weekend. I will get with you Monday and give you the keys to the kingdom so you can decide for yourself what you want to spend and how you want to spend it. Ted

I have OC'd them to 4.4GHZ easily and mated with 16GB of fast ram and this: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperClocked-Dual-Link-Graphics-02G-P4-2765-KR/dp/B00DHW4HXY/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1397950642&sr=1-1 she will easily stay at 45 to 50fps http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i7-3820-Quad-Core-Processor-Cache/dp/B006WVVA28

    Since the year 2000 Intel has been the far superior processor for gaming and that substantiated by multiple test sites. However I have seen AMD processors run FSX and P3D very well. It is also a bit less expensive to run the AMD platform, however Intel has become extremely competitive. Ted

    Just uploaded an AI package for those of you who like to sprinkle these things around airports. See the details here: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?catid=6&linkid=18407 These are lower poly, lower texture size stripped models for light use as AI.

    I would just like to give a "shout out" to some people here for behind the scenes assistance that helps make these projects so much better than they would otherwise be. Thanks to Maarten who has provided so many great resources and reference material, not just for this project, but nearly every project we work on. Thanks to SrGalahad "Rob" for his relentless quest for details hidden in the recesses of the Internet and on bookshelves. The materials and info he finds sometimes blows me away. :-) Rob has also invested considerable time researching, suggesting, and finding the proper gauges and radios for the Lodestar cockpit. There are others who always research and provide inputs early on in these projects, send stuff, provide links, pictures, scale drawings, etc. that tend to go...

    I'm with you Dave. Can't wait to get back to complete the Harpoon project. These are looking so fine. :jump: Won't be much longer getting the Republic XP's out the door and we'll be here.

    Per the info I have: "Since delivery of the planned Aeroproducts contrarotating six-bladed propeller had been delayed, the first XP-72 was equipped with a single four-bladed propeller as a temporary stop-gap measure." The installation of the single prop was done in order to continue testing while awaiting the Aeroproducts contra-rotating props. Since the single-4-bladed prop is the one tested with the R-4360-13 (instead if the supercharged R-4360-19) and the only one for which test data exists, that is the version we will be releasing.

    The Republic XP-72 was Alexander Kartveli's proposal for a replacement for his fabulously successful P-47 Thunderbolt. It was evolved in parallel with the XP-69 escort fighter project. The XP-69 was a completely new design, whereas the XP-72 was a more-or-less straightforward progressive development of the P-47 Thunderbolt. The XP-72 was the first fighter to be designed around the huge 28-cylinger Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major, the most powerful piston engine produced during World War 2. The engine was close-cowled and was fan-cooled. The Wasp Major was to have driven a pair of three-bladed Aeroproducts contrarotating propellers. The wing and tail of the P-47D were to be retained, but the airframe was enlarged and strengthened. The turbosupercharger was still located aft of the...

    Bring it on Son! :-) It would make for an interesting race with the weight differences. But the 72's R-4360 does have a slight advantage. :wiggle: Frankly, I had no intention of finishing it but since the 47's had mostly all the same parts, I just cloned the empennage, wings and cockpit and here we are Sir! :jump: Tom had actually cleaned up the flight model back in '09 so its good to go save a fuselage paint job. I just need someone to paint her ... Nigel (sorry, he's offline for a few days). We had hoped to get the betas out this past weekend but there were a few remaining bits to finish up so we'll shoot for this coming weekend. Sounds for the V-16 still a WIP and we're trying to get the Checklists cleaned up to minimize aircraft damage and busted up parts. :-)

    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
