    Nick - Huge thanks for your step-by-step. It resolved nearly all the problems I was having. Just took it for an extended flight - maybe the best DC-3 experience I've had in a flight simulator to date. There are just a few minor glitches I still have to work out. Some of the switches in the VC - fuel pumps and generators, specifically - work opposite to their orientation in the control panel (that is, off in the VC = on in the control panel). Turning on the panel light in the VC seems to turn off the nav light - but that doesn't happen in the control panel. The obvious fix is to run things from the control panel, which is fine - not really an immersion killer since it's got the switch sounds, and no stranger than using the 2D windows in the A2A Accu-sim aircraft. The 2D radio...

    After a lot of trial and error have got it mostly working. Not bad for a first-timer at VC merging! The main thing that caught me out on the first attempt was not understanding that we had to use the default DC-3 panel folder and .cfg rather than those from the C-47v2. The second thing was not realizing that we then had to copy elements from the C-47 panel folder and files to the DC-3 - the two C-47 CAB files, as well as the control panel entries from the C-47v2 panel.cfg. As to "mostly working" - I'm finding that the switches on the overhead don't always match correctly to the ones on the control panel. The primer switches don't work at all, for example. And for some reason one of the light switches (I think it's the NAV lights) seems to turn off the starter for the left...

    Speaking as someone who's been eager to fly the VVC - obviously under the circumstances that's now the least of our concerns. Here's hoping that Hansi comes through whatever he's dealing with and gets back on his feet. That matters more than anything else. I don't know him, of course, but I wish him the best.

    My most-used C-47 paint by far - perfect for nearly anything you might want to carry and nearly any civilian mission you might want to take on, at least in the US and environs. And it fits perfectly with the modern cockpit - a beater but still in use. Am looking forward to trying out some of the vintage paints when Jan's VVC arrives, but for the moment, this is it. Superb indeed!
