    Land ho, Milton! I've started a new thread below on CFS3 modelling. BTW if you use a picture hosting site you can link images directly to your post and get them full size immediately. If they're too big, the forum software will resize automatically.

    I'm making this another thread to keep the sticky above on topic. To build for Combat Flight Simulator 3 (CFS3) you need Gmax and the Aircraft, Vehicle and Building SDK for CFS3. The SDKs used to be available from Microsoft but the CFS Insider site is gone so they're all here in the SOH library. If you're building in any other modelling software you'll need to get the model into Gmax to export to the sim, unless by any chance you're using 3ds Max 4.2! :dizzy: Build your model like for any MS flight sim and link the various parts together in a proper hierarchy. At the top of the hierarchy is a Dummy object or a very small polygon named after the model: the SDK includes two finished models (P-47 and Ju-88) so you can look at these to see what I mean. All animated objects must be...

    Although we have nearly 18,000 members "only" 4,264 are active members. From the 4,264 members 331 members made a contribution, which is less than 8% of all active members. The group of people who donate is getting smaller, while the costs to run the SOH are rising. Personally I also have the feeling our hobby is shrinking. And most probably the economic situation in many countries is causing people to be more careful with their money.

    As Milton says and his link will point you to the SDKs and patches for CFS3. I'm at work, so will answer your other post after the kids are bunked down.

    Dear all, As you all most probably know the Sim-Outhouse is a crowd funded organisation purely ran by volunteers. This year is an expensive year as we would like to replace the aging main server on which the forums run and which contains the file library. Since a couple of months this server is giving error messages, which is not a good sign. For a more detailed explanation I would like to refer to this post. While I write this, the counter tell me we still need over 40%. When we don't succeed in raising the needed amount of money, we will most not be able to keep the SOH as we currently know it.

    Here is a heads up on the SOH server, with three weeks left to meet our goal. At the time of this posting we are at 59%. Payday is approaching and we are hoping this will allow us to gather the remaining 41%. We must face facts. If we don't meet our goal please consider what SOH can do without. As time gets closer we will post a list of options we can forgo to pay the bills. Those who have contributed please accept our sincere thanks for keeping us advertising and pop-up free.

    Very nice repaints Steve! The oily olive green looks perfect! I prefer the lines of the early Mustangs, however when I would have to take them into combat I think I would have preferred the view from the D version cockpit. Cheers, Huub

    Have just read that W7 support will continue until Jan 14th 2020. That's cool as I'm looking at a new PC now and it'll most likely be W7 64b. So as long as I can still run CFS3 and WoFF at decent settings I'm quite happy, anything fancy I can do on my phone. :0)
