    That looks great Andre! The executive Lodestar I'm working on now, I decided that I wasn't too happy with a lot of it, so most of it is getting a redo.

    We live almost exactly 10 miles from downtown P'cola. I too, had lived in Pensacola before (while stationed here in 1991-93). But I lived on base then, in the CPO barracks. We chose this area to live in so we wouldn't have to worry about water surge from a hurricane; plus the crime level here is lower when compared to areas south of us, closer to town. There is rarely any crime in my area, except for punks looking for unlocked cars to rob. Pensacola, (I learned from a class I took at the Sheriff's Dept) has around 18 active gangs. Again, most are located closer to town. All in all, we feel safe here. I will never feel as secure as I did when living out in the country of southeast TN, but it had its drawbacks, like being a long way from conveniences. NC

    Thanks airtj, I do not own a cellphone (don't want one, either), but I am a member on the Nextdoor website for my neighborhood + 5 others. When my neighbor told me about the thievery yesterday, I posted about it on the Nextdoor site immediately! Usually someone will reply, but no comments yet. Still, I feel better about letting folks know. My neighbor DID call Escambia County Fl. Sheriff's dept, and a deputy did come out to make a report. I spoke to him, and he told me of the other incidents reported the same day. I bought a lock for my gate, in addition to the wireless alarm, which will arrive (courtesy of my favorite online store, Amazon) this Friday. NC

    Oh, I am not planning on discharging a firearm. But if anyone goes through my gate into my backyard, I will call the sheriff's dept. first, and then prepare to defend my home:encouragement: NC

    Nice security system, Ickie. My neighborhood hasn't gotten to the point where I need that type of protection yet. Hope it doesn't! NC

    Yep. I will say this....the north Pensacaola neighborhood we live in is MUCH safer the area in Fort Myers we moved from. Also, I am surrounded by neighbors who own firearms and fly their American flag proudly....:encouragement: NC

    Thieves (punks) occasionally roam my neighborhood at night, looking for unlocked vehicle doors. They ransack whatever they can, quickly, and move on. Two of my neighbor's vehicles were "hit" by thieves last night. Both admitted not having locked their cars. I don't have a garage, just a car port, but I do have a heavy-duty metal latched driveway gate. I try to remember to lock my car most nights, but this is a reminder to me that thieves are out there. :banghead: I ordered a wireless sensor for my gate though. A...holes. NC

    I see I have made Lefty a bit nervous posting something this new. Say what you will about these modern pointy jets but they are still quite a feat in engineering! Walter corrected himself in time to get a cold one. :very_drunk: It is the Mitsubishi on final on it's maiden flight. Well done. BTW- I like your avatar Mike. One of those suicidal Nazi rocket ships I see. Here is yours truly lovingly caressing the fin of WL790 (N790WL) several years ago on a chilly overcast fall morning.

    Somewhere in Mexico, south of Mexico City. There I was minding my own business, cruising along at 9500ft and the darn trees started getting bigger and closer. Fortunately none were the ill famed "Mexican Jumping Redwoods". I did get close enough to the top of one hill there that had a farm on it, I could have stole a watermelon. Any lower and I've have plowed the farmer's fields with the props.

    Looks outstanding! You sir, are a true artist. On aircraft, going back to the early CFS days, if we wanted something "invisible", we used to paint the bits we didn't want to see pure black (0,0,0,). Make an alpha layer for it with those bits on the alpha also pure black. Voila, no can see in the sim. It's still done for 2d panels to see out the front. I'm not sure how it would work with scenery though, but it is a thought. I've got an old CFS 2 paint for the simTech Do 335 (that I call ol' Bulletcatcher) that has holes shot all through it using this technique. It still works very well in FS9. Haven't tried it in FSX though but I see no reason why it wouldn't at least on aircraft.

    The paint in the screenshot is a work in progress I'm doing of N80A. The actual aircraft was a Learstar built from a Lodestar (close enough) and served US Steel as an executive aircraft. I've got it in a "prototype" state in FSX flying, but there's a couple of areas that I'm not happy with yet. I've got good shots of more executive Lodestars, Learstars and Howard 250s that stand a good chance of being painted. On which common textures, one additional one that I do put in the livery folder is the parts_t texture. I do this because the prop blades are included on it as well as the engines. One thing I like to do is make the props unique to each paint. Different colors to match the aircraft on the tips and I've got a collection of prop logo bitmaps and will use different ones as...

    No biggie, but can the loadout screen be made bigger? It's so small, I have to stare and focus to read it. :wavey: Cees
