    I have two candidates that could be morphed to give 9,500 RPM at 80% without having to change the graduations excessively. Would it do? I'm trying here to get as precise a reading as can be while keeping as close as the actual gauge appearance. Having my cake and eating it too so to speak...

    The problem is quite simple; the only way to control RPM, at least that I know of in CFS1, is through throttle. As, in "real life", that throttle control ceased at 6,300RPM (it was a typo on my previous comment), and would automatically raise, and stay, at 9,500RPM. how could we mimic that with the needle deflection? Add also the "burst" action that you wanted to use. It would certainly show on the RPM, and it should not. It would have been the same problem with a constant speed propeller but, at least, CFS1 AIR files could deal with that. I doubt that the FS98-style jet AIR file can.

    Never heard of one for CFS2, But I have what was called the Gold Version for CFS1, But I think some gun owners have a saying about prying my fingers off this, Well same here...never gonna happen.

    Another trove worth reading; THIS SITE!!! :redfire: In it you will learn quite a bit. I was particularly interested by jet starting procedure (spoiler alert); and jet control; This solves many questions concerning a variety of subjects and, after thorough reading (I made a PDF of the document), I went back to the Bedienungsanleitung where the 25 L starter fuel tank (probably B4) was stored in the right wing. It had a volume capacity of 30L but, probably for expansion, was only filled up to 25L.

    Hello Papingo, "Fast Bricks" is actually a pretty good summary of how they fly. I have been poking around with a fantasy AIR file for my Ohka 11 which is really a heavily converted Learjet and am learning a bunch of things. (Not so much about HOW to do things but more like what values for parameters actually work well.) As usual, there are conflicts for time with other projects I am working on and coupled with a Development Machine that is no longer reliable, it may be a while before I have anything to show. The Jets of this time period are actually not that much faster than the last generation of Propeller Fighters, so if you are seeing them as that much faster, perhaps the AIR files are wrong which is quite possible. Way back with the JG 57 folks, I know I did some messing...

    I once said to Ivan that flight simulation modelers are probably the only ones flying from frontal view. :p87: Fiddling a bit with cannon shell's counters tonight and will send to you two guys. BTW- Have you modified the DP file so that primary trigger should be associated to cannons? And you could adjust them to shoot a bit higher, from my point of view.

    Hello Hubbabubba, Aleatorylamp, Anna Honey is again out of town for a week so I am actually finding very little time to actually do much of anything flight simulator related. In the last couple days, I have turned on my development machine but never actually did anything with it. Another big problem is that the machine is so unstable at this point, that I can't even bring up FDE on it anymore. I have a second development machine that is much more powerful but without the current projects and also without a monitor or desk space. Ideally, I would need a KVM (and Joystick & Sound) to get it operational but failing that, perhaps I can find another way to get both machines running at the same time. Hello Hubbabubba,

    Of course, the choice is entirely yours, but consider this as my contribution to your project. I can't see that panel being used for anything but a He 162 and, as you may know, CFS1 Spatz are not plenty. I decided to concentrate on the panel as to let Ivan "spoil the sauce" with the AIR file. I'm a touche à tout (Jack of all trades) in CFS1 but, after my PC meltdown, I have to reconstruct the tools of my different trades one by one, so to speak, and gauge-panel was as good a place to start rebuilding as anywhere else. But, again, no strings attached. Ivan- I just saw a period picture where a Me 262 is being refueled by a bowser (truck tank). On it, written in big caracters; J2.

    Hi guys! Yesterday, I went to a brunch and only came back in the late afternoon. But I had time to do the Großhöhenmesser, easier than I thought it would be. A good document on jet fuel is THIS ONE. B4 was used when J2 was not available, it is even mentioned in the He 162 Bedienungsanleitung PDF as a possible replacement. The left half of the main panel is there and the backdrop is pretty much done. Will send you both, Ivan and Aleatorylamp, a "teaser" tonight. Back to ...hum... "work"...:kilroy:
