    John, You'll recieve a register key by e-mail. Did you already get it? Once that's installed, take the time to read the manual for the start up procedure. You bought a very fine and well made addon, one of the best I've flown. Very rewarding. Kind regards, Cees

    During this event, one of the TBMs suffered a hydraulic failure and made an emergency landing. I remember watching the news coverage of this, as they were covering the flyover live, at times. The news people said "ok, we just got word that the plane that made an emergency landing was an "Ess. Bee. Two. See. Hell. Diver, yes, that's right a Hell. Diver." Then they showed the TBM parked on the runway, hehe. Oh well, they don't know, because they're not Ex. Perts, you know, like us. Here is some interesting video, shot by the pilot with his GO.PRO. helmet cam:

    Twist is back home, and acting/feeling much better. His diet will be different from our other cats, and I will probably have to sequester him to feed him. Also have to give him 120cc of a special fluid, subcutaneously. That will begin tomorrow. I am so relieved to get him home, and the chance to keep him alive and happy for a while at least. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. NC

    Can you post a screen shot? Point the plane such that the CTRL-Z heading says "360", and show the cockpit gauges. Doing this while parked is best, so you're not seeing the lead/lag associated with being in a turn, which makes the magnetic compass read incorrectly, which is correct...

    Depending on your video card you might check to see if you need the table fog line in your cfg. Adding the line: tablefog=1 under display device.

    That's interesting. I would have concluded that I forgot to set the gyro compass to match the mag one, but it's the mag one that's off. Or seems to be off, by comparing FS's CTRL-Z digital readout to the two gauges. So, is this an "RTFM" issue? But this plane didn't come with an "FM", apart from the copy of the real "FM", that is. Tried several other planes, just to make sure. I'm sitting on runway 06, and the sim says I'm pointed 059, and the mag compasses in all the other planes agree. Weird.

    Our pets are with us for such a relatively short period of our lives, but (speaking for myself) all of them have meant so much to me. Years ago, back around 1999-2000 timeframe, I had another Siamese cat named "Armand". He was a Blue Point, about 1 1/2 years old when I adopted him from a breeder. Armand had been a show cat, having spent almost all of his life to that point in a cage. It was several days before he warmed up to me, but became quite a loving companion. Armand seemed to have sniffles (respiratory) continually. It was a respiratory infection that eventually brought his defenses down to such low levels that I had to let him go at age 7; not very old for a cat, let alone a Siamese. It was over two years before I reached the point where I could handle getting another...

    I have seen it called that. "The Pace/Mansdorf or Gannet conversion of the Widgeon with the Lycoming 300 hp. radial engines made it look very much like the Goose." My photo has it as the Pace Gannet. In Aerofiles, it is listed under Gannet: <small>Gannet Aircraft Inc, Sun Valley CA.</small> Super Widgeon c.1955 = STOL modification of Grumman Widgeon; load: 1700# v: 190/170/x range: 1000 (on 158 gallons of fuel). Claimed water take-off in 10 seconds. Anyhoo, over to you PH!

    Just over a week ago, I noticed my little "Twist" was acting differently. Normally quite active and vocal, he was spending more time sleeping than usual, and not running around. Took him to the vet for blood work. Results are that his kidneys are 90% damaged, and he was almost in full renal failure. He has been with the vet since Wednesday morning, and only just this morning - finally responding to IV fluid therapy. A definite positive change from the vets report last evening. I was preparing myself for the worst today. Twist has improved, and (at least for now) doing much better. The plans are to bring him home tomorrow, around noon. I don't know how many days or months I will have him, but I will make every day count. He has been such a blessing to me. NC

    Installed the new version. Went with the giant sized textures, and re-selected "aircraft, cast shadows upon thyself" - no stutters. Very smooth. Beautiful. :jump: But, I don't know if this was addressed, but thought it was by the item in the fixed list "mag compass not working properly". In any case, I have to write up a repeat gripe with maintenance control...

    Started out as a Grumman Widgeon, then out to the west coast for a makeover... Figured Wout would have snapped this one up straight away.

    Hi Ferry. Oops, this thread "dropped off my scan", so to speak, and then I cleaned out my attachments. Yes, that was (is) Santa Maria. The kit is a 1/90 scale by Revell, from many years ago. I've had it for a couple decades, and started working on it a few months ago. It's interesting, for a Flight Sim guy, my "historical passion" has probably leaned a bit more towards ships than planes, but just barely... :) I'm up to the hard part now - the rigging...

    I have not tried it, but the utility does look interesting. I lost count of all the utility programs I have downloaded/installed throughout the past 10 yrs. But I look at AVSIM, Flightsim, and occasionally Simiviation almost every day. Most days there isn't much that interests me, but sometimes I see an unusual offering. Not in this particular case, obviously, but whenever there is a USN-related file listed, that always gets my attention.:encouragement: NC

    The database is quite the undertaking John. Something I can't quite seem to get motivated to do! Good luck with that.:encouragement: No means an expert here, but I would agree with the 4 bays. On the triangular portion at the tip, even though it is enclosed, doesn't there have to be a section of wing top and bottom to be a bay? Like this I presume?

    PRB replied to a thread Negatives to digital? in Photography
    On the V600, you can have the "dust removal" or the "digital ice" option selected, but not both. Strange thing is, I tried the ice option, but it didn't seem to do anything at all. After that, I couldn't get the dust removal option to work anymore either. Obviously more experimentation is needed.
