    My limited skills rendered another livery for the fine Mercator P4M-1 converted by Lazarus. Depicts SN 124365 of Fleet Air Recon Squadron VQ-1. In memory of the 16 crew members who were killed during a mission out of Incirlik, Turkey in January of 1960. After researching operational dates for the P4M-1Q Mercators it appears that many, if not all were deactivated during the year 1960, so it's quite possible that this aircraft was on one of it's last missions before being taken out of operational status.

    1. Open the MDL file with Notepad++ or a hex editor 2. Search for entry: PAYLOAD STATION 3. These entries look like: (A:PAYLOAD STATION WEIGHT:3, pounds) 1000 == This is the 3rd station_load entry in the aircraft.cfg file (station_load.2), set at 1000 Lbs. 4. Let's change that to the 2nd station entry in the aircraft.cfg file and set weight at 200 Lbs: (A:PAYLOAD STATION WEIGHT:2, pounds) 200 == Important: Make sure you overwrite the old characters (incl spaces), if you delete or insert a character the MDL file will have less/more characters than before and will be corrupted. Another challenge is to edit the right station entry in case of having multiple stations with the same sequence no.

    Having created an Nvidia Inspector theme for Fsc and adjusted the cfg I'm a little happier with Flight school. It needs a full weather engine, especially to limit the viewing distance and raise the height and depth of clouds. Improved landclass would do wonders for coastlines, but the best thing about FSc is that there were no pauses or stutters. I believe it promises a great deal for the full sim...as long as they re-enable gradual transition in spot view as I dislike the "plane on a stick" locked spot.

    Does anyone know how to implement Gradual transition as opposed to lock spot view? I've placed the FsX camer view in the FSc Cameras config but that doesn't work.

    Jafo has said that is just a 2D panel (if that's what you're referring to), not a VC. If you're referring to Klaus' shots at the top, I apologize. I've tried reworking the VC but it's beyond help due to modeling problems and the way the VC panel was made (a bitmap stored in the panel folder and too small for the amount of gauges it holds). The panel should be done in two sections with each section being at least 1024x512, then the gauges would be readable and much sharper. The exterior and interior can be improved with larger texture sheets, but the VC panel is as good as it gets without some intervention by someone with modeling experience and access to the source code.

    For the past few months I have been conducting a "science experiment". The question? Can Linux be a practical alternative to Windows? Practical means 1) is it easy to install? 2) Is it reliable? 3) Can I keep it up to date easily? 4) Can I figure out how to use it? And 5) Is software available for it that will allow me to do the things I do with a computer? So far the answer to all those questions is 1:yes, 2:yes, 3:yes, 4:yes, and 5:mostly. If it wasn't for software I need for work, and Flight Sim, 5 would be yes as well. And there are so many versions of Linux out there to choose from it's amazing. The screenshot here is my desktop, currently running Linux Mint 17.3. This is my favorite so far. Installation is simple. Download the iso image, burn it to a disk, stick it in your...

    I hadn't noticed really, but it's marked for the FS9 area, and it should be FSX.

    Yes it is. If you do a search for falcon409 and limit to the FSX area, you'll find it. I'll post a link in a bit! http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links_search.php?action=show&sort=d&literal=1&userid=83&page=4

    Some additional information on this tail number from the readme. It was built in 1951 and 2 years later was assigned to the 3520th Pilot Training Wing at what was at that time Wichita Municipal and later McConnell AFB. It apparently remained there until 1962 when it was removed from active status and brought under the control of the National Museum of the US Air Force, which oversees all static displays both on civilian property as well as those on Military Bases. Again, nice job Willy, too bad the static display doesn't look as good as your rendition. . .it's rare to see one displayed in public areas that's ever kept up at all.
