    Fantastic work! I'm really looking forward to the "new" F-35. The first Norwegian A (AM-1) model should be coming out of the factory any day now as well. It will be interesting to see how it is painted.

    Sorry, real world has been a distraction lately. And yea, I use MCX the same way. Much quicker than relaunching the sim over and over. When I first typed I had forgotten that Mark made the deck candy as separate MDLs. I thought someone had chipped away at the carrier to get the deck candy for use elsewhere. Took my chill pill so all is good now. :running: I saw some discussion on the SeaSprite. Alphasim, er Virtavia, made a nice one. We're also going to include the type on one of the Vietnam era Enterprise's as parked/folded on deck and as flying plane guard. Basic overall blue so not very interesting but will make a nice change from the SeaKing for one of the versions. :ernaehrung004:

    Keep in mind that just because something is now freeware doesn't mean it is wide open for reverse engineering when the end results will be made public. I (via Team SDB) have permission to do things with the Iris MiG-29 because I asked. I would encourage you do the same; get permission and then give credit. :ernaehrung004:

    I just did a clean install of the sea fury into P3D, but I'm getting very bad fps, it gradually goes from the normal 30 to about 15. All the files should be in the correct folders. Any ideas/advice?

    Nope sorry. I don't have that one. You might have better luck asking in the FS2004 section. Not sure it made it out in FSX. :ernaehrung004:

    I really like that top image. You've done a really nice job of conveying that it wasn't just skinned with one piece of aluminum. You've got slight variations in adjacent panels which is spot on. A little less reflection though as you mentioned. That's not easy to do with metal in FS and not make it just look like shades of gray paint. People like the special schemes (so do I sometimes) and I did several for the original FS9 release with David adding even more for the FSX remake, but there's something really nice about a plain jane "let's-get-the-job-done-and-try-to-make-it-home" scheme. Very pleased to see this bird getting continued attention. :ernaehrung004:

    The Corsair is a real pain go get down safely compared to the Seafire and Hellcat (as it should be..). Not only is the forward visibility terrible, but the approach speed is on a knife edge to a stall and wing over..

    Thanks for the input! That formation must have made ATC over the group a pretty difficult task when a complete strike group returned back to land on 4 carriers in close formation! Any idea about a good spot for the CVE (Ruler)? I would guess either part of/or trailing the 4 carrier diamond.

    Any one of you which have any ideas about a realistic launch/recovery fleet formation used by the Royal Navy? Attached is a picture of the current formation, any feedback/ideas are most welcome! I'm also trying to find information about the Hellcats flown by 885 NAS from the escort carrier HMS Ruler. There is one pic at this link http://www.ozatwar.com/navy/hmsruler.htm From what I can see so are the Hellcats without any codes or letters. The bigger fleet carriers carried a carrier specific letter and a 3 digit number for recognition (ex W/166 for the Hellcat from 1844 NAS HMS Indomitable). My guess is that since HMS Ruler also brought up fresh airframes to make up losses on the bigger carriers, that the individual aircraft did not spend much time before being passed on.

    I have always found the Firefly to be an interesting design, sort of a twin seat Spitfire.. The external model is not to bad, but my last experience with the VC/panel was not exactly what we have got used to these days. A shame as I would love to have a Firefly MK.1 for the BPF lineup.

    IanP, Sorry to hear about your situation. I just wanted to write to say that your sceneries have been favourites for a long time. Your web page is a treasure of w.w. 2 airfields for FS! Thank you for your time and effort to the hobby! Take care!

    :banghead: Nice repaints but I'm a little concerned as I look at these images. I just wanted to make it perfectly clear that all of the deck eye candy (aircraft, people, vehicles, tow bars, etc.) on the USS Kitty Hawk included in the Aerosoft F-14 package belong to Team SDB. Slightly modified by Mark Harper they are from our original 80s-90s Enterprise and the upcoming Vietnam era version. We allowed Mark to use them for his USS Kitty Hawk. This a commercial package that shall not be reverse engineered in any manner. Repaint them if you like for use on that ship but under no circumstances shall the "deck_statics.mdl" nor "hanger.mdl" be separated from the package and reused in any form anywhere else. For folks not wanting the entire F-14 package, Team SDB has agreements in...

    I use an HDMI cable and for the purposes of FS it works fine. 19-pin digital is 19-pin digital. Just a different arrangement. :ernaehrung004:

    (Sorry Bjoern, for some reason the forum doesn't want to let me reply with a quote today so having to manually do so.) Ian, sorry about your situation. Have been there a couple of times. Sucks big time. But it does force you to prioritize things and FS might not fit in there for a while. But of source it is a good escape from time to time. As Bjoern suggested, you can put your files up on a server that only hosts files. THEN, since you have a lot of description on your current website, start a blog with your descriptions and links back to the files.

    JensOle replied to a thread Ship wake in Prepar3D
    I think the vertical fx was fixed with 2.5 or one of its associated hotfixes. Some more research into the problem. It looks like many carrier models have hard coded wake fx files which is not controlled by the cfg file. With making hms victorious ready for p3d this has caused a lot of problems, in the end the only fix I got working was to remove the fx_wake_carrier.fx file alltogether. Even when i enter a new fx in the cfg file it shows at the original water level (and not the heightened level as per the "fix"), even if the fx has been changed. Looks lik the fx level is decided by the model and not the fx file itself. Hopefully v3 will make ship ops easier 😀
