!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Hi there All the lightnings are fully compatible in P3d 4+ including 4.5 if the .dll replacements available at the top of this post are applied . Cheers Dave R
  2. Hi Guys , sorry for the delay . I've put together a few notes for converting your legacy textures to PBR for use in P3dv4.5 . When I first looked into PBR all the talk seemed to be of the expensive programmes needed and workflows ect . It all seemed quite daunting , but In fact It's dead easy ( albeit a bit tedious if it involves lots of textures ! ) Anyway ,see how you go , and I'm always here to help if you get stuck . PBR Tutorial.docx Have fun Dave R
  3. Hi Dale Yes the textures and settings were upgraded for the T5/F6 models … all that is lost though switching to PBR . here is a comparison , the first is non PBR ( in fact it has a PBR missile) , second is PBR . In my opinion non PBR is the better representation of aluminium in a screen capture , but dynamically in flight PBR is better with the light play being more realistic . but that isn't to say one of you guys might not hit on better settings for better aluminium. Paintwork on the other hand benefits all round with PBR , compare the missile with the T5 study I posted in the screenshot post.( must check my sim settings , these are not as sharp as previous shots !) Dave
  4. Hi Cameron I must say I'm surprised at how little interest has been shown for PBR , but I'll put something together so you can have a play . Dave
  5. Hi Guys These are some screen captures of the F3 converted to PBR with the standard textures for comparison ( 111 sqn aircraft is PBR ). To best compare download the pictures and arrange one on top of the other as a layer so you can turn the top layer on and off . … So that answers the question can it be done ! In fact anyone can convert any and all aircraft (no artistic talent needed).... Its pretty easy really albeit tedious . if anyone's interested I could put together a little tutorial .
  6. Hi Gus Just tried the link at the top of the page and it downloaded fine . DR
  7. Hi Dale With the Mitchellwing ? …. still waiting for feedback that its all ok ! :0) Meantime I've been converting the Falcon UL I did , proving to be a bitch , because every time I make an alteration to the model I have to reconvert all the textures again . As for the Lightning' s , that's going to take X50 the work … and I'm not totally convinced the metallic textures are better ! Dave
  8. Hi Dale Hopefully I'll have had some response and it proven by then , but nevertheless, happy holidays . 😎 Dave
  9. Hi guys , sorry not a Lightning , but I've been experimenting with the new PBR materials , so would anyone with P3d v4.4/5 like to give this Mitchellwing U2 the once over for me, and let me know if I've missed (or Messed ! ) anything before I stick it up for general consumption . https://www.dropbox.com/s/bck2dmom84f2ev1/Aerosoft Mitchell Wing U2.zip?dl=0 Cheers Dave R
  10. Hi Flapper I think only the F6/53 downloads as fully functional in P3d v4.0 and above( up to 4.5 at present), but the T5 and F3 only need two .dll files replacing and they are good to go . The fixed files are at the top of this forum. Cheers Dave R
  11. Hi Peter Nothing much to show as yet … still trying to beat this PBR into submission...., for a system that has "metalness" as one of its parameters a decent ally is proving hard to get. :0), If you check the .cfg you'll see the Avon 210 is already dialled in. D
  12. Aye , I thought everyone must be on holiday ! Nothing was forthcoming on the F2A weapons system from the Bruntingthorpe meet ….. the pilots were too hazy in their recollections , but I have managed to get hold of a tactical manual for the Sea Vixen ( uses the same Attack Sight as the F1 and 2 ) It's not nearly as comprehensive as the RAF AP's but it gives me a better understanding. Now of course PBR has to be considered ( it stands for Pain in the Bloody Rectum :0). ….. whole new learning curve . Dave
  13. Hi Peter I'll be at Brunters later this month with the LPG, so I'll be quizzing Dennis Brooks and John Ward ( they are used to my cross examination 😊) so I may get some info … but it's relying on 40 year old memories ….. nothing beats having the AP . Hopefully the guys that own F2 cockpits will also be there so I can twist their arms as well. D
  14. Well, I was getting withdrawal symptoms so needed a fix ….:0) I honestly didn't think I had enough info to model the T5 and F53 initially , but over time I have garnered enough ( and made contact with the guys that own cockpits ) to do them , likewise with the F2 . D
  15. Hi WH It is still very much a WOP, so a lot depends on whether or not I can get the info on the PAS. I'm toying with the idea of putting together a package of the F1A and F2 / 2A with the 4 gun fit and all the improvements the T5 and F6/53 have gained along the way.... but it's early days yet . D
