    DCC P-38M Night Lightning conversion for CFS2 posted

    DCC P-38M Night Lightning


    David Copley was kind enough to give me permission to convert his P-38 series from FS2004 to CFS2. Please read the DCC permission document.


    The models and sounds are all his credits. I only converted the models to a CFS2 format.


    The aircraft.cfg and air files are also David's work with some slight tweaks to adapt them for CFS2.


    Because CFS2 does not use the alpha channel reflectivity feature of FS2004, I reworked the original aircraft textures for CFS2 to hopefully have them appear largely as David intended them to look in FS2004 (plus a couple of changes to give the pilot a leather helmet, some dirty wheels etc.)


    The prop texture was replaced with one by Morton which works better for CFS2.


    The panel was replaced with one by Morton. The panel.cfg VC section was modified to match David's VC models.


    See the original FS2004 documents for additional credits.


    The dp is my work.

    Kurt,

    Many thanks for converting and releasing these...we needed an expanded Lightning set for CFS2.

    Capt. Thank you for your work on these. I am wondering though, why am I not seeing the RPM gauges in the VC? Am I missing something?
