    Very nice indeed. This looks to be my new virtual homestead. Great looking work. One question, the FLCP, does it utilize wire trappings too? I've heard of the concept for honing their skills, and would love to practice trapping with the upcoming Aerosoft Tomcat, Dino's Goshawk and the VRS Super Hornet.

    Pluto, how long does it take to get activated? I sent the automatic activation last night and had hoped it might be in my inbox by the time I got home. Looking forward to flying this around the great Barrier Reef and the PNW. Thanks, Matt

    Thanks Andrea. I will get it installed in the morning after a very long download....really long for it's size, just saying. :dizzy: I will then register and look forward to joining that forum as well. Thanks for actively seeking and answering the noob. It's much appreciated.

    LOL! I hear ya Dave. I am now at 56% and will let it run it's course through the night. I am looking forward to running it through it's paces. On a side note, there was mention of freeware scenery in an earlier post by Pluto, I think, but I don't see it on their site. I see their ACMI stuff and service packs for the F-84 and F-104S, but nothing else. Is it on the forums perhaps? And, speaking of forums, I do not see a place to create an account and when I log on with the account info, I cannot gain access. Is the only way to access the forums is to register via Facebook? I hope not, as I really despise that medium for communications.

    Anyone else catching extremely slow download speeds from their server? My service has a typical 30-35Mbps download speeds, but this file is only 640 Mb and it's taking hours........ I've run the speed test to ensure it's not on my end, still getting average of 32 Mbps. Thoughts?

    Thanks for the update Pluto. Still a great rendition of a Cold War classic.

    Woohoo! Thanks for the heads up on the sale. I added the F-104G to my stable. Without going off topic, are any of the SSW stable Tac Pack compatible? Thanks for a great looking bird.

    Nice Zsolt, simply nice! I know that's not the ol' Alphasim variant, by chance the freeware shown a few months ago? Also, I would pay you for one done with the 318th color scheme. My departed dad crew chief'ed one in 1964 and used to praise the airframe all the time. Then he moved onto Phantoms and went astray, though he indeed loved the Phantom too.

    strykerpsg replied to a thread C-97 wip in FSX General Discussion
    Such a great model and iconic aircraft to portray. Looking at the latest videos, how many variants do you plan on developing? I've seen some pics with the turbojet and other's without. I bought the A2A 377 and just never got into it, too much work getting the engine settings right, for me anyway. I really like this one though as some systems really seem to be simplified and I very much like the A2A refueling area and working underside lights and effects. Superb job!

    Hank, I completely understand and it was not meant with sincerity, just a comment in general. Admittedly, the Mirage isn't really my taste, but it's the showcased paints that have been demonstrated here that have really given me much consideration about purchasing this beauty. With that being said, it's always been the beautiful paints presented mostly on this site, that have often driven my wallet getting lighter. So, again, thank you to all of you artists that take so much time and pride in brining to life those otherwise lifeless polygons. You're my heroes.

    My apologies if it was someone else work, it's simply amazingly good! My hat's off to the artist. That being said, Zsolt still has some fantastic paints that he's displayed on this site. Thank you to all artists.

    Zsolt, you are a painting machine/maestro! You absolutely should sell your wares as they are simply amazing. The fact that you freely give them is a phenomenal gift and we are blessed to have such a talented artist, as well as so many other artists, in our gathering. Thank you for keeping the bar held high.

    WOW! Plus 1 to Heywood's comments. I always wondered about the various lights and such on the underside of a tanker. Thank you for the energy you are putting into this beauty.

    Thanks Dimus. I plan to do much more IFR than I had before, but will keep an eye on this one too for VFR purposes. Dave, I had seen PFPX and totally overlooked FS Commander and ironically, both in the Aerosoft webstore. I guess what I fear is an add on that's a bit too complex and it becomes another piece sitting there collecting dust. Perhaps some others that own FS Commander may be able to elaborate a bit more, pros and cons. Thanks for your input. Matt

    As I've posted more than a few times, I've finally rebuilt my lost library and re-installed aircraft, scenery and the various utilities to make FSX look fantastic. My next quest is in flight planning. I've only ever used the default FSX planner, but I know there's some things that can be handled better. My question to the reading masses is what flight planning program do you use and why? Finally, I've always wanted to do a crossing of the Atlantic and know when I've tried this in the past with the FSX default, it didn't fare well. It's because of this past experience, that I am hoping there's a more user friendly tool available to put together real world flight plans as well as giving me freedom to create my own. Thanks, Matt

    Heywood, What scenery are you using in this shot? I had to do a double take as I thought it was a shot of a real bird, until I saw the typical patchy green/black areas in the background typical to FSX. Though the Metroliner isn't my kind of thing, scenery is and that shot is fantastic! PS, did the static aircraft come with the scenery too? Again, great looking scenery. Matt

    Thanks. I always forget about their stuff. I have to say their packages are quite impressive. Now, for a better reproduction of McChord..

    I'll have to look up this AIFP2 you're talking about. I haven't used it before, so I may fumble around a bit getting it to work right. For those other's that didn't know about the vast amount of freeware from Orbx, here's the link: https://www.fullterrain.com/freeware Thanks for all the tips. I'll execute them once I get back from some late afternoon work.
