    Hey

    Couple of little quirks here and there, but let me know what you find so I can fix.

    Another wonderful TOW production!! (And what an intricate landing gear animation sequence! Slow too )

    About your little fixes:
    - I have no textures on my primary flight instruments. Are they aliased to something I don't have?
    - There appear to be duplicate bomb bay doors on the bay second from the left: One door is closing from the left, one from the right and they pass through each other.

    Out of curiosity: What is the bright red panel in the cockpit behind the pilot's seat (outside view)

    Fantastic job by all.
    N3641 was the 7th production Stirling fitted with stopgap Bristol Hercules ll engines developing 1375 hp.
    The Record Operation Books show it was used on 4 raids by 7 Sqn. The first to the Rotterdam oil tanks on the 10th February 1941 followed by Boulogne docks on 15th. Raids to Brest on the 3rd March and Ostend had to be aborted due the military target being obscured by cloud and danger to the occupied civilian population. N3641 then disappears from Form 540 as do others below N3650 as more aircraft with the updated Hercules XL 1500hp became available.

    The red square was legacy part that I will remove
    I'll check the bombdoors
    Instruments - I need to upload a new set, I thought that I included all the textures that were needed currently B_gauge_mkv.dds

    Copy and paste from my account on imgbb.com . I was checking the source of 33lima's pics to see where he was getting his from and got my own account!

    New Short Sterling and Manchester

    I am just wondering there are the original Sterling and Manchester?

    Should these be left alone or deleted?

    Are the original Missions that include the Sterling and Manchester affected by the upgrade?

    I have been a member since 2008 and have loaded every mission that has been available to date.

    I am just like that little kid who asks too many questions.

    This group has been there when I have been up or down and I appreciate you very much!

    Well one can leave them but some may show up in the QC aircraft list as the same name (that is the short name in the xdp)

    If you want to use the missions you will have to replace the original aircraft model name in all mission instances with the new model name. This is done by simply editing the mission.xml file and use the 'replace' under the 'edit' function. One day I could redo all relevant missions and replace older versions with TOW_xxxx updates but if you like, give me a list of the relevant ones you like and I will do them as I can.

    Hi James, looks like you are missing textures for the vehicles for some reason. I did find a texture problem with the Thornycroft crew truck, but I don't recall what I did to fix it. I would have looked at the m3d to see what texture it was calling.

    Thanks for these!

    The uv light effects are out of position (too far back) to substitute for the default red cockpit light. This position will let them work as intended.

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="-0.575" PosZ="5.5" PosY="1.0" Pitch="120" Heading="20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
