    So long Bombardier jets..............

    They use the white wire so the Tech Reps can tell the techs "I know what the problem is. It's the white wire!" I kid you not. That's what the Westinghouse Tech Rep told us when I was in the Corps. He didn't like it either, though. Not a one of them was labeled in any way, either. Not in...

    LVar - have I got this code right? (SOLVED )

    Hi, Deano, I don't know a bloody thing about working with .mdl files and MCX, although I am obviously going to have to learn sooner or later. Having said that, I've been working with Jimi and the guys at the FSDT FSX Blue Angels team on their awesome F/A-18C, for FSX. I've been working on adding...

    FSXA MD Helicopters MD500D/MD500E

    Since the loss of the Hovercontrol site, a lot of models have been lost. There were a number of FS9 MD500's that had been modded to FSx, several of them by Peter Nemeth himself. Including the gauges. I don't know if any are still available out there but they may be. Try checking with Mr...

    P3D v4 Wondering how to make these leather pockets...

    Sounds like my body...:rolleyes: Yeah, took me years to get it just right. ;) Looks like it's coming along, LionHeart. Thanks for a good teaching tool you provided for others to create such a thing in their plane. Pat☺

    Underslung Loads P3D v 4.5

    A great bunch of info on making an aircraft sling/hoist capable : Sling/Hoist loads Sldo, just a HU: AICarriers is quite capable of creating loads for your aircraft to pick up, carry, place elsewhere, etc. I find it much easier to use than the "Saved Flight" scenario. Just my opinion. You can...

    FSX:SE Sound Effects Through Smoke Effects?

    Just as a quick example, check lines 12-17 in the following [Smoke] section, utilized in the FSXBA F/A-18. Thought it might be of interest as an example of using the [Smoke] portion of the aircraft.cfg to call sounds out: [SMOKESYSTEM] smoke.0= -14.00, 0.00, 0.00, fx_dummy smoke.1=...

    P3D v4 Technique for testing/checking textures while painting newer aircraft

    There's a small problem when using the "Reload_User_Aircraft" key command, which, BTW, I use frequent;y: You MUST have ALL forms of AI turned off. Ships, Ground vehicles, aircraft, you name it, it's got to be off. If you don't do that, there's an increasing probability that it won't update one...

    P3D v4 P3D V4.4 Water salute effect

    Cut-n-paste all that text into an empty text file. Give it a name that will reflect what it is/does. Like fx_Water_salute.fx , for example. Make sure the trailing file extension is .fx . Make sure you only ever use NotePad or NotePad++. Never ever use a word processor! They add symbols you...

    Ultimate Traffic Question

    Yes, IF: His (their?) PC has them, IF his AV doesn't catch and isolate them and notify him, and IF your PC's AV doesn't catch them, isolate them, and notify you, then yes, your PC can get a virus, trojan, malware, etc from the remote. They can also plant things, like a keylogger, to hide on your...

    Real world for a change

    But Ed, do you have THE most essential, vital, and critically important supply, the one which without, there's no point in staying anyway. Naturally, I speak of the alcohols you prefer. Beer, whiskey, bourbon, whatever. :rotfl: Sorry, I had to. Seriously, Ed, I wish you the best. Beware...

    FS9 Hover~Helicopters

    All very true, and quite accurate, Roy. Having said that, did I misunderstand the OP's question? I thought he meant something along the lines of "If I lift off the ground, the bird drifts backwards, without any control inputs." If I have been operating under a misapprehension this whole time...
