• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FS9 aircraft carrier arresting cables

Hi, All

I know, I know, FS9 is old. But there are many people who still use it, as it is a superior product.

If CFS2 had a carrier landing that worked, is it possible to place the CFS2 carrier (the Essex) in FS9 and somehow make it work?

Thans, all.

So, let me change the question...

Is there a way of addingn arresting cables to FS9? (or to FSX, for that matter).

Thanks

Hi, all
After getting the rcbco-20.zip and doing all the steps, the arresting cables don't seem to work... Any other clues?
Thanks

Okay, but it worked for me with different aircrafts and carriers...
But it is some time ago. So let me test some flights again.

Perhaps I can then help with some files...

Did the catapults work?

The panel should look like this for a F4U-7 Corsair

For training I suggest to use aircrafts which are easy to fly, such as Grumman Greyhound, T-45 Hawk and not Hornets, Tomcats or Phantoms.

The NAS Meridien (KNMM) is fine for first trainings.
Use daytime, clear all weather and set a front wind of about 20kts to simulate the moving carrier.

If you send me an email, I could send you some files (aircraft, scenery or ini files)
