    Hello All -- well, the new feature in the new version is nice. Now my problem is finding some discussion about how to implement "an effect". I have added effects to an airport but I get no effect in the compiled, running airport. Then I saw somewhere about a "file" or "title" related to an...

    VOR / NDB Range Setting

    Hello Gang --- :D I have been wondering if there is a way to override the imposed maximums on both VOR/NDB/DME and range settings. I have some applications that require somewhat longer ranges. Any help here appreciated, rather than me trying to re-invent the wheel ;) Many Thanks === Bob :)

    Landing Light Effect Needed

    Hello All --- have been looking for an external landing light effect that can be added to an aircraft via the "aircraft.cfg" file. Being new to a/c design, it would appear that most landing lights are coded into the model itself and are not added externally. I have been looking for an add-on...
