  1. Optional would be fine, but I don't think a copilot being hard coded into the model is a great idea. The Twin Otter can be, and indeed is operated single pilot in some instances, for example British Antarctic Survey operations.
  2. Stunning work. Though I'm more of a propeller pilot, so am looking forward to getting hold of the Twin Otter sometime further down the line. Thanks for your efforts.
  3. Hello Mathijs. Having checked the settings, its clear that I have forgotten to increase the mesh complexity etc. Issue rectified, and my apologies for having troubled you with a self inflicted problem! Best Regards, Alastair Summers.
  4. Hello Otto. Thank you for your reply - Unfortunately and obviously rather oddly, the Vector config tool doesn't pick up any of the Antarctic airports at all, so I can't disable AEC for them. Regards, Alastair.
  5. Good Morning. Yesterday I re-installed Antarctica X, having upgraded my PC several months ago. Unfortunately I'm seeing some graphical anomalies - see below screen shot of Rothera/EGAR. I don't recall having had issues in the past, and have owned and installed Antarctica X a few times over the years. I did purchase some Orbx products in their January sale, namely Vector and Global, so perhaps these are causing some conflicts? I am using FSX:SE, and have tried redownloading Antarctica X from my Aerosoft account (so the latest version), and reinstalling, but still the same issue. I also have Aerosoft Launcher installed. I note a previous thread that sounds like similar issue. Any assistance appreciated, thank you. Best Regards, Alastair Summers.
  6. I'd pay any money asked, for a DHC Dash 7 of the same quality as the Twin Otter Extended. Milton Shupe's is nice of course... But I long for a payware quality version.
  7. Thank you! That is most appreciated. Regards, Al.
  8. Hi, Today I downloaded Holgi's 'A320_CFM_UNTITLED' repaint. Unfortunately when I try to open or extract it, I get a message that it is invalid. I downloaded a couple of other repaints to make sure it was only this file with the problem, and they opened just fine. Would love to get the untitled repaint, so wondered if Aerosoft could check the file, or whether it means Holgi has to upload it again. A special thank you to Holgi for providing us with these amazing repaints - I just hope I can get the untitled one soon! Thanks again. Regards, Al.
  9. Ah, problem solved! Sorry! This seems to be one of the few features that the aircraft doesn't 'remember' if you close FS and restart! Still, I wonder if its possible to reattach them without exiting?! Anyway, back to flying this little beauty....
  10. Whilst sat on the ground happily warming the engine up, I decided to take a look around the interior of this beautiful little aircraft. I didn't think there was any harm in operating the yellow handles at the front-top of the rear doors (left and right). Upon then unlocking and clicking on the rear doors, they popped off the hinges and vanished!! Therefore my first flights in this little beauty have been distinctly drafty, and very very loud! Simply amazing realism, but to be honest I would like it if the little hooligan who picked the doors up from beneath my Dornier, and made off with them, would kindly bring them back and reattach them! I've tried running maintenance mode, to see if it would reattach them...it hasn't. I've tried all manner of clicking and closing, opening and closing etc on the doors/accessories pictures on the kneeboard. Infact, the doors in question open and close on the kneeboard, and a loud 'door closing' noise can be heard too. But when I look around to see if they are back...nope, nothing! Still empty door frames! Help! Kind regards, Al.
