    You don't do yourself justice Milton.... its easily better than a lot of fsx freeware!

    The "FS9" Trackers and CDF tankers that are already released are surely better in FSX than many "FSX" addons I've tried, some payware included. :salute:

    My intent is to release the earlier mentioned package with the same basic panel look as the radial releases, albeit functional for the turbos. However, if Rachel and I can finish out her excellent start on the turbo panels and gauges, we will release that package as an upgrade to the panels in this release.

    I know.. I have all of them in my FSX install, along with the Howard 500, two of the very best. :salute:

    To increase my immersion, I have been playing around with adding sounds to the tank doors opening/closing and the retardant drop effect. Based on what I've read on the internet, the flow of retardant is controlled by the doors throughout the drop, so the doors would be constantly adjusting. However, since we just open/close the doors all at once in FS9/FSX, I pointed the exit open and exit close events to one of the stock flap.wav's, which gives the impression of some electrical motor opening or closing the doors. I've also modified a jet engine sound I found at flightsim.com and assigned it to the retardant drop effect. Hopefully the result simulates a sucking, rumbling sound I would imagine you might hear (or feel) as hundreds of gallons of fluid are sucked out the bottom of the plane.

    Does anyone know what you might actually hear (or feel) from the cockpit during a drop in real life?

    LOL That sounds great!

    Ok. I'm pretty happy with where I got the tank door and drop sounds. If anyone wants to try it, everything you need is in the attached .zip file. I would consider this a "beta", since no one else has tried it but me. It should be pretty straight forward and safe to try though. There is a short readme included in the .zip file.

    I agree Blackbird... Milton's birds are phenomenal in FSX, I even went overboard on one of them!

    Beautiful work on those repaint Firekitten!

    Thanks... but they aren't repaints... they're ground up textures

    We can thank Firekitten for some special texture work, both outside and inside on a revised model just for her efforts.

    Hopefully we can flesh out this new panel setup to complete her package.

    Milton has been a real sweetie to work with... He's a great developer and works very well with artists! I feel privileged to be involved even in a small way with one of his creations.

    I think I caused the delay frankly... I started texturing the VC and then caused all sorts of nightmares by going a bit far

    Milton does magic with gmax and he is quick getting the revised work to ya, even if the model is over eight+ years old! :salute:

    With the progress we are making on Rachel's panel, I think we will hold off until we get that complete. Investing a lot of time trying to get the balance of the gauges done to wrap it all up and I am slow at the gauge creation thing. :-)

    I also found several small issues among the 6 different models and I want to get them all cleaned up.

    We'll shoot for end of month.

    I am open to putting up one model if you all would like to do some beta work.

    Sounds good to me... I'm looking forward to giving these a whirl.

    If you can use another BT I can give it a go for you.

    I have uploaded the WIP CONAIR to the SOH FS2004 Aircraft library for your use until we complete the new panel and gauges and wrap up the full package.

    This link should work once the archive is approved:

    Thanks Milton!

    The plane is currently over in the inspection hangar at the moment. Hope to take her up for the initial flight later this morning. :salute:

    Wowsers!!! She flies like a Formula 1 Stoof! Quite different with so much power. And easy to land. :-)
    Great sound from Nigel's first class studio.
    Excellent! :salute:
