  1. I still have the FS9 Alphasim F1/F1A/F2/T4 models (by David Hanvey/Paul Barry), each has a custom interior which appears to be quite authentic. If you are interested I can make screenshots.
  2. My feelings about Steam? I am using FSX Steam Edition for a while now, the fact that Steam gets launched every time I fire up the sim does not really bother me but I do not like it either. For me it is just a little sacrifice which is justified by FSX-SE runnning much better on my system than legacy FSX. I do not like the Steam store either, my 1st Steam buy was a big disappointment. I very much prefer to buy direct from the original vendors. I did have Flight School, completed all the lessons and then deleted it from my system. I could have installed FSW for free but after seeing several Youtube videos I concluded FSW is just not good enough for me. The decision to go for P3Dv4 instead was a no brainer.
  3. The Lightnings are OK in P3Dv4 with the exception of the sound /refuel modules. The good news is that Mattijs Kok made the new 64bit ASC.dll sound module available in the Twotter forum: All you need to do is swap the old 32bit ASC.dll file for the new one and block out (or move to backup folder) the Panel\LightningF*.dll / LightningT5.dll files. Everything should be working now except refuelling.
  4. With version P3Dv2.4 LM introduced new settings in the ParticleDraw.fx shader. From what I read they did that to fix ship wake effects issues but the downside is that the particle X/Y scales of other effects like afterburners are reduced in size. Doubling the size of the particle X/Y scales in the FX file usually does the trick.
  5. Dave R has already painted Cranfield T.5 XS458 - at least it was there in the last beta build we got to test.
  6. Dave, thanks! I use FSX-SE, it looks perfect to me.
  7. Thanks, it looks great already, looking forward to the release.
  8. Nice repaint - where can I find it ? I searched for it here in the downloads and on Groomlake Simulations but it is not there...
  9. The black stripes you are seeing are on a different texture sheet: lit_fuse_f_T.dds. Hint: There is a brilliant freeware tool you can use to explore the mapping of the texture sheets: ModelConverterX (made by Arno Gerretsen, available on fsdeveloper.com). - Install the latest development version - Open the exterior MDL file - Hit the "Material Editor" button - Check the "Highlight Selected" tick box - Scroll through the materials list to find LIT_FUSE_F_T - the model area you are looking for will be highlighted in red.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion but even if I use a download manager (Firefox - DownThemAll! ) the downloaded file is still corrupt.
  11. This may be of interest to those who purchased at PC Aviator Australia: The new version download link appears in your orders history but the download itself seems corrupt. The zip file I got is only 390 MB which should be 780 MB and cannot be opened/un-zipped. I have just opened a support ticket.
