    After some new updates in Win X I installed FSXA with the DX10 preview turned on and went for a flight. Everything is still working well.

    Interesting question Brad; made me think about what I would really like to fly in. Hands down, it would be an Aero Commander; simple twin, high wing, piston, GA aircraft. And I would prefer the AC520 of all the rest for casual flying. As a passenger, the best turboprop I ever flew in was the de Havilland Dash-7; quiet, low prop hum, comfortable, powerful, lots of handling finesse, a great experience overall. I tend to like high wing, STOL aircraft, piston preference. Think de Havilland for most of them. I flew in a DHC-4 Caribou while in Vietnam and was very impressed with that aircraft.

    LOL Yes, in 4-6 weeks maybe ... but it will not be drool worthy, just updated. PRB did such a nice job on the WIP panel and gauges, I may not change it. :-)

    Are you in FS9? If so, the aircraft.cfg MOIs may need an update. I changed mine to the following: empty_weight_pitch_MOI= 27241.360 empty_weight_roll_MOI= 56108.570 empty_weight_yaw_MOI= 10431.430 empty_weight_coupled_MOI= 0.0

    Okay, I have finally worked through all five models to get the exterior improvements done, and get all the cockpits functioning and looking the same. Focus now will shift to re-mapping the exteriors. All models have different fuselage shapes but the wings and engines are the same except for the 3N. Hope to make good progress over this long weekend ... LOL before I get back to retirement on Tuesday. :-)

    Pete, he a great job with this very complex aircraft given the constraints. Just search for Erwin Welker; you will find it.

    Bob Familton setup a nice FSX AI route with the AI version I sent to him. Works great! Looks great! I asked him if he would add a few routes and release the package. No impact on frame rates i could see. I am ready for some MP action this weekend if anyone wants to jump in.

    Unscrupulous governments have zero interest in the content/purpose of the sites they attack/probe, they are simply looking for unprotected and vulnerable sites that they can then exploit by adding their own nefarious code to use as and when desired. If they can amass thousands/millions of sites which can be triggered to run their 'code bombs' they can quickly cripple huge blocks of the internet and bring down Western commercial and government infrastructures. The attacks could also be religion or ideology based, they don't like many of the things we take for granted in the West and see it as their duty to wipe it out.

    LOL Johan, my wife and I go out plenty. :-) And, this Tigercat will never cost you money, or anyone else; it's a gift to the community as with all our projects. We have similar backgrounds but at my advanced age, I have just done more I guess. :-) Started my career in IT as a programmer and progressed through Business Systems Development, then Technical Support, Telecommunications (voice and data networks) and 16 years in IT management, then left the large corporate job for some nice operations level servers, networking, applications, and peripheral support. Being a one-man band was a lot of fun when you have responsibility for it all, and know how to take care of business. Retired now, I still enjoy managing the projects as long as I have an excellent team required to make our...

    The lack of some languages is only with the beta version of Win X. The official release will have that corrected.

    Just FYI, I am working continuously on the F7F-1, -3 (single seat), -3P (2-seater), and -3N now restructuring the gmax source, improving on the exterior models, the VC basics, the overall packaging and underlying folders and files. A good general cleanup and re-familiarization before I begin remapping the exterior. Much yet to be done but at least, I'm on it. :-)

    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
