    If you read this entire thread and you will see that this E-2C does not belong to Virtavia, it belongs Dovetail Games on Steam. And as such it has been encrypted to only work on their version of FSX and not the old boxed FSX or P3D. Again, ... sorry. And sorry again, I don't paint fiction (unless it's a Mirage). :ernaehrung004:

    TAD means Temporary Additional Duty. Similar if not the same as what we called TDY in the Army. What about the Virtavia EA-6B if the Razbam one is getting long in the tooth? :ernaehrung004:

    I'm waiting for Phil to get the go-ahead from DTG before he sends me the texture masters. My part of the textures are finished, just waiting for the panel line and stencil layers. The Israel Air Force E-2C were painted in the two grays the F-15s were painted in so not just a matter of painting on the Star of David insignia. Something you should realize thought, this model only works in the FSX-SE version from Dovetail Games via Steam. On sale now by the way. :ernaehrung004:

    Hardly. We're just getting started. You chose to bug out too soon. Please don't ruin it for the rest of everyone else. Things are getting fixed through this discussion. No spiral downward. I'm trying to bring positive reports with each post. Let it run the normal 10 days please. :ernaehrung004:

    The vertical fins themselves were not mirrored. They were reversed on the starboard sides which is an inconvenience but is not the end of the world and certainly would not put a stop to repaints. The issue was that one texture for the back half of the fin, the moving split rudder, had been reused for all four surfaces. This worked perfectly for the customer's requirements, and anyone who just wanted to fly it as is, but not so much for us repainters. Anything that takes up half the surface us going to have some unusual markings in it so that had to be fixed if any repaints were going to happen. A couple fellow simmers on FB pointed this out to me and I forwarded their example images to Phil. Based on the new MDL file I checked out last night that has issue has been corrected. ...

    OK, so my apologies to all. Apparently DTG did put in some sort of encryption so that it will only work on their Steam version of FSX. I really thought that since the beta copy worked in all that the final release would as well. I'll go back to the paint booth now. :ernaehrung004:

    You never know about textures being able to handle the more complex schemes until you try it. DTG didn't even want "NAVY" or stars-n-bars. This one has no mirroring. It is very traditional so should pose no issues. Based on the panel line layers of the paint kit there is no weird bending going on. Very straight forward. :ernaehrung004:

    No even $10 at the moment. $7.49. That's a meal at a fast food place for a refreshed version of FSX. Anyway, good traps.

    That's the fault of DTG's marketing copywriters who think they know how to drum up business but have no sense of what people are really interested in. Virtavia didn't write any of the tripe. The "exclusive" bit is the fact that it will always by a DTG exclusive product. Believe me when I say that both Mal998 and myself were both very conflicted during development knowing how this one was going to go down in the end -- exclusively through DTG and all that that means. FSX-SE is on sale at the moment for $10 I think. Maybe even less during the sale starting next week. I know everyone likes having physical CDs that they can hold in their hands but let Steam store it for you -- they have continued to fix things in the sim we all play that Microsoft abandoned nearly a decade ago. ...

    Entire range? Not hardly. Anyway, it is just another market. All products are still sold as they always have been and will continue to be. To you second point, not at all. This is so far a one-off opportunity to make something exclusively for DTG. Many developers have been contracted to make exclusive content for Dovetail Games and not stopped making products for boxed FSX or P3D. We've already started on the next product and it is not for DTG. You will no doubt be able to buy it from them but also everywhere else. :ernaehrung004:

    What are you smoking because I want some. Let's go down the list. 1) Sale price ends on July 4th. No change after that -- it was made exclusively for DTG and will remain that way. 2) Don't know what liveries you are talking about. We did two with no markings. None to follow unless folks who buy it want to make some. 3) See my post above about using it in boxed FSX and P3D. I tested it during development and it works in both. 4) There is no Steam DRM. You simply copy the aircraft folder and a couple effects files over. Done. :ernaehrung004:

    It will not be available to purchase outside of FSX-SE. It was made exclusively for DTG. But, I did test it in FSX-Acceleration and P3Dv3 during development. :ernaehrung004:

    Death by Autopilot. I thought that was an Airbus thing. TWA Flight 841 survived by the way. The aircraft was structurally beat up but the crew and passengers walked away. :ernaehrung004:

    Picked this gem up for $5 and some change at PC Aviator today. 33% off plus an additional 10% off plus a $5 discount code I had. I know everyone else has moved on to the next week's or next month's offerings but if anyone is remotely interested in the Gulfhawk you can pick it up through Monday for $10.22. :ernaehrung004:
