    Hi All, For everybody who has used the supplied ETO effects file when installing the new Hudson package. you will need these revised torpedo files to be able to see wake's coming off the back. if you applied the effects entries to your own effcts file then you do not need these revised weapons. you do not need these weapons for MAW or Rising sun only ETO. Just drop them into your ETO weapons folder and allow to overwrite, you will now see torpedo wakes. The torpedo will hit the water with a splash, then run underwater for a bit (no wake) then a wake will appear once the torpedo is running close to the surface again. this effect work is part of Gecko's work on the upcoming ETO patch. as mentioned in the post above, this problem goes away once the ETO update patch is released. ...

    As I mentioned earlier I had a Belgian Havard 4K in mind for Wozza's beautiful T-6 model. Although the model is not fully correct it depicts the AT-6 flown by Colonel Nossin from the Avanced Pilot School in Kamina (Belgian Kongo) in the early 60-ties. Its just a start (so you have to be patient). Most of the drawing work has been done, now I need to adjust the spec maps and alpha layers. Working on this repaint gave me inspiration for at least two other T-6 repaints.

    Hi Grover, Are you talking about all torpedo's or just the ones supplied with the Hudson update? did you by any chance use the supplied effects file for ETO? instead of updating your own effects file? I'm letting the cat out of the bag here, but there is a largish ETO patch being worked on right now with many updates. one of the updates is a revamp of effects for torpedos to allow bouncing bombs (such as the 617 raid in 1943 on the Ruhr dams) this work requires edits to torpedoes in ETO to call on new effects. each torpedo now calls on its effect via the weapon xdp file rather than a generic torpedo effect. this mean the new bouncing bomb (which is actually a torpedo) does not show a wake, rather it shows a series of splashes whilst travelling towards its target. If you did use...

    Hi All, I have just been informed by one of the testers that the download package is missing one weapon. If you select the M24 torpedo loadout in MAW the game willl crash. You need to copy the "ETO_mk24" weapon from your ETO or Rising Sun install and place it into the weapons folder in your MAW install that will fix the issue. I will organise for a replacement Hudson set to be uploaded with the M24 torpedo included. sorry for any inconveniance, regards Rob.

    Hi Daniel, the long range tanks were used for ferry flights and by the transport command when moving people from Med/Nth Africa to England and back. at one point they had a small airline service set up with regular scheduled flights. I vaguely remember reading about some CC planes with the long range tanks for extended recon patrols in the Nth Atlantic and up and down the Norwegian coast out of Ice Land. regards Rob.

    The sticky threads include links to installation guides. You might find this one useful, it includes how-to for removing Rising Sun as well as how to install it.

    Trial and error brings me to the following conclusion: If you fly around 1750-1800 ft you will get the best effects for these.

    Hi All, Owen, what your seeing there is the crate model as its just about to hit the ground. and in the background you can see the effect being run for a crate you dropped earlier. The two models being used for the Hudson supply loadouts do not have parachutes included. instead once this model hits the ground an effect is triggered that then shows a parachute with a box or supply container hanging under it. In CFS3 ther is no way to have a deploying parachute in a weapon model, so to make this work Steve Dunn made up the effect sequence which calls for a texture sheet. this texture sheet has the parachute image with the box hanging under it. it was first used to create the seamine weapon. when using the the supply crate or supply containers you will see in the bomb bay the...
