    It is controlled by entries in a camera view. Are you talking about the generic VC view, or another cockpit VC view? Also, what sim are you using?

    I still do, in FSX Steam, while breathlessly (and perhaps hopelessly) waiting for a P3D4+ version. IMHO one of the finest payware tubeliners ever put on the market. The 727 is a close 2nd.

    Are you saying that when taxing, applying rudder to taxi, the rudder is moving (external view), but the nose wheel is not? What airplane, what flightsim program?

    I have been doing some more review of data and testing. An R5D-5 / C-54G with 1450hp engines can have many variances due to how they were converted for civil use. I have modified my aircraft.cfg file...

    Your "RSD" - you meant R5D - model is apparently based on the Navy R5D-5 or USAF C-54G with a MGW of 73000 lbs and 1450 hp engines. Buffalo had at least 2 C-54Gs involved in accidents. How many...

    Are you using FSX or P3D version?? My P3D4 version has an ASI calibrated in mph vice KIAS. That is a 15% difference in what you use if flying KIAS (which I always prefer). Example: 140 KIAS is about...

    Glad you figured it out.

    No. That would be the same as falling back, or referencing to itself. Texture.cfgs are like aliasing a panel in another plane. It is a way of putting files used by every...

    Are any of your texture folders using a texture.cfg scheme? Apparently they must (there is a Texture.common folder). Perhaps a bad texture.cfg file with a bad fallback reference?
