    This is the Readme contents from DXTFixer: DxtFixerX for FS9 and FSX - neumanix 2012 ----------------------------------------- This tool fixes the stutters in FS9/FSX caused by dxt3 and dxt5 textures without an active alpha channel. To just search for bad files without making any changes, check the box that says "Just report bad files".

    That's the way I work but now I tend to do it on a per-part basis. I used to leave the mapping until all the parts were made, partly because I was afraid to do it as I didn't fully understand the process, the result was that I ended up with hundreds of parts that required mapping and it turned into a big chore. For the large parts (fuselage, wings, tail section, control surfaces etc.) I build them all and then map. For the small details I build the part, map it and then animate it if needed and then move onto the the next part. Here's another tip for when you have multiple, small, identical parts like nuts and bolts, screw heads, hinges and brackets etc. Make a single part and map it before you copy/duplicate the part as many times as you need it as you will only have to map it once...

    It's not just P3D Pat, it's a well known bug in FSX too. The refueling 'box' is also quite large and depending on the size of your aircraft you might have to move several plane lengths away from the pumps (in any direction) before your doors/canopy start working again. It drove me batty in FSX when I was testing one aircraft and it took me a while before I found the cause, I had to Google it in the end. I've also heard of the large fuel 'box' causing serious issues for people who fly in VA's where they have to calculate the required fuel load per flight and pay for it with virtual dollars. If they are taxiing past a fuel point and have to stop for some reason like giving way to ground traffic or on instructions from the ATC then they can trigger the re-fuel action and cha-ching they...

    Try running FSX in windowed mode instead of full screen. I use a second monitor for things like the GPS, FS Tramp map, FS Host chat box, Weather Set 2, Teamspeak, etc. but I have to run in windowed mode for most of those items to show up.

    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
