    These guys were brilliant looking from the ground, but get how it looked from their point of view at the recent Newcastle V8 Supercars event. It really shows how nice Newcastle looks from the air on a great day. These guys blow my mind with what they can do. They were from the RAAF Williamtown base nearby. So proud to be living here. http://australianaviation.com.au/

    back in 99 2 Sqdn RNZAF took me for a flight from Nowra to Hobart and back in a 2 seater A4, when we got back to Nowra, they had a mock dogfight, the amount of stress the body goes through in some of those higher G turns is unbelievable, It takes a very fit person to be combat pilot and width stand those G forces, hence why you dont see any fat combat pilots, they also say the shorter the pilot the better as they dont have to work as hard to control the blood flow, and females are naturally better at withstanding Gs than men. credit is given to the aerobatic guys, as well but doing those turns at 180-200kts compared 450-600 plus is another thing I recall at least 4 accounts where i passed out however the pilot said I passed out at least twice that, not to mention being sick as a dog, however i can honestly say i didnt spew but i did lay on the outdoor setting for about an hour next to the hut on the flightline while the NZ guys took the piss

    Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Ant has always produced quality accurately modeled aircraft in the past, not to mention his great freeware scenery. For that we owe Ant a great big thank you However on the testing front, Ant made this available as a public Beta thereby asking for help with bug finding to the finite degree, it is not criticism, far from it, it is always constructive. If a bug is found it needs to be identified & at the developers discretion, corrected. I have not had the time to test the T28 yet but am an active tester of OZx freeware scenery. You would be amazed at the bugs errors we find before the scenery is finally corrected, retested & published. Remember good "testing" helps the developer (in this case Ant) to produce great aircraft.

    TROJAN T28A NOW AVAILABLE Thanks to everyone who helped with the testing I have just uploaded the completed T28A which can be downloaded from this page (150MB in size): http://www.antsairplanes.com/trojan.html I have also uploaded the T28B/C and T28D version 3.00 installers for the retailers to update their files. THIS WILL TAKE SOME TIME so don't expect the B/C and D to be available right now. I don't know how long it will take for the retailers to update their files, I can't control that, plus some of them are probably asleep at the moment as they are on the other side of the world. I could be tomorrow, it could be next week. The best thing to do is sign up to receive update notifications if your retailer allows this as the retailer will then email you when it's ready. The new installers for B/C and D will be 349MB and 225MB respectively. While waiting for the update to filter through why not fly the A model instead? If you haven't got the B/C or D yet then they have new lower prices ($14.95 AUD) I will update the files for the T28A on the aussiex and sim-outhouse sites later today or maybe tomorrow. Next up for me is updating the Drifter for P3Dv4. After a rest. BTW, does anyone know how I can change my signature in the forum? I've been through all the options I think I can't find the right one.

    Yes Jorge, I saw the oil temp and pressure. That's what happens when you don't have enough oil, the temperature goes up and when temperature goes up the pressure goes up. I'm working on another update which should be ready tomorrow (Friday) as I don't think I paid enough attention to the Maintenance section. There's a few other things too which I had to work on like the aircraft push.

    No Passengers

    When I look at your video I see that around 8:40 you choose your line number and destination manually. Do you never make use of the Ibis? Passengers only board the bus when you use the exact destination corresponding to the trip file.

    Can you post your log file? Maybe that gives a clue. Otherwise, it's hard to determine the cause of this problem. The first thing you have to check is the humans setting in the options.

    Yes, 'try'; when applied sparingly, it can invite in all sorts of strange totally unexpected experiencings.** **experiencings is a term more in tune with the engineerings academia, as opposed to the more common "experiences". A term of some ill repute, offered excusedly by non-engineering 'boffin-types'. A little 'type' goes a long way, so no Capitals. Always ushered in surreptitiously, usually into innocent unexpecting conversations, otherwise may leave a nasty dent, if you get my bent. I really do need another coffee.

    Hi David I tried extending the mouse zone for the flaps handle a bit but there is a lot of stuff down there (the A model doesn't even have the supercharger HI/LOW handle). 1950's aircraft aren't known for their ergonomics and indeed the flaps handle can be hidden by the throttle. After many crashes to desktop I've added an option to the sounds settings to mute the sound on lost focus. It wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be but I was needlessly making it complicated by stopping directsound and restarting it which was causing crashes, turns out the function to read the sound files handled this situation just fine by itself with very little changes. This works in FSX as well as P3D and can be changed on the fly, it does cause a little sound dropout but that can't be helped. Like I said though I can't read this information from the what the user has set in P3D so the user must set this to match whatever they have in P3D. I made a note of that in the manual. I've also made a few changes to the starter switch, there were certain situations causing issues with sounds and getting the starter switch out of sequence. I'll probably upload an updated T28A beta tomorrow. I'm just compiling the installers now.

    Thank you Andrew, the missing DC3 and poles must be non convertible objects so nothing I can do , the crash in the grass ...well you should not taxi through the grass!!!! ... now in a serious note , that is a common problem , all objcts have what is called a Crash Box that surrounds it , the developer must make sure that the size is reasonable , in the case of grass it should not have one , again nothing I can do , you should use your SIM with disable crash detection , as you are bound to find more subtle crashes around many (even payware ) airports..

    View File Milton Shupe's Douglas A-20C Havoc 'Steak and Eggs' This folder contains a repaint for the Douglas A-20C by Milton Shupe and his team. It shows A-20A serial 40-166 of the 3rd BG, New Guinea 1944. Please note that you will ned this update for the A-20C to allow for reflective textures:http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?action=jump&catid=37&id=23146. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by William Ellis and the bare metal textures by Gordon Madison. A bit of history for this aircraft: A-20A serial 40-166 was originally assigned to the 5th Air Force, 3rd Bombardment Group, 89th Bombardment Squadron. Nicknamed "Little Hellion" with the nose art of a girl next to a palm tree with nose number 13. On November 1, 1942 took off from 3 Mile Drome (Kila Kila) near Port Moresby piloted by Ford on a strike mission against Lae. This was Ford's thirteenth combat mission. Over the target, damaged by anti-aircraft fire that ruptured the hydraulic lines forcing it to make a wheels up, flaps up forced landing at 7-Mile Drome. After the landing, this aircraft was written off. Afterwards, it was inspected again and deemed not to be as heavily damaged as initially assessed. The aircraft was towed back to 3 Mile Drome (Kila Kila) and placed onto empty 55 gallon fuel drums. Over two months, this A-20 was repaired using parts from A-20A Havoc 39-724 which also suffered a landing accident. New engines were installed and the aircraft completely rebuilt. Equipment including the armor plating, guns and bomb racks were removed. 3rd Bomb Group mechanics including Kip Hawkins and Joe Long worked on this aircraft. When completed, the aircraft still bore the tail serial number 40-166 and made a test flight on February 4, 1943 piloted by Captain Petri. Renamed "The Steak and Eggs Special". On February 21, 1943 departed Port Moresby piloted by Lt. H Brown with two passengers and 200 Pounds to purchase steak, fresh fruit and vegetables in Australia, and returned three days later. During the next six months, this aircraft was used as a "fat cat" on supply runs from New Guinea to Australian cities including Cairns, Townsville, Brisbane and Sydney for fresh food, vegetables, eggs and liquor. During early May 1943, it moved with the squadron to Dobodura. During August 1943, it was stripped to a bare metal finish with a red and white stripped tail. The nickname was changed to "Steak and Eggs" and later "Steak & Eggs" on both sides of the nose. During November 1943 this aircraft, piloted by H.D. Brown with passenger Lt. Lauer, flew under the Sydney Harbor Bridge before landing at Mascot (Sydney Airfield). At the end of January 1944, this aircraft moved with the squadron to Nadzab Airfield. Since this aircraft did not officially exist in unit records, precisely how many fat cat missions this aircraft flew is unknown. On June 11, 1944 while flying in Queensland, Australia piloted by Lt. Rude Vucelic with five passengers aboard including the crew chief, the A-20 was caught in bad weather and ran low on fuel. It force landed on a beach on the northwest side of Low Wooded Island, near Cooktown. Passenger Lt Kennedy who was in the nose injured his shoulder during the landing, and four others escaped reasonably well. After the crash, a salvage party did visit the aircraft, but a complete salvage was deemed too difficult. Today, the wreckage still remains on the beach including the two engines and wing section of the wreckage.

    Thank you to Andrew that pointed up YYRM , I found the culprit sceneries causing most of the problems.. most of the UKVFR libraries fail to convert , MCX would not complain , simply would not create the converted file , so most files where missing , I converted some manually but some would not barge , these I replaced without conversion .. Lets see how we go .. the new download is in the opening post. Jorge

    Thank you Anthony, this is an example of P3D installer that does not take that much extra work and complies with the LM request. Most developers of scenery and objects should follow your example and start producing REAL P3D compatible products...thank you again Jorge
  37. 1 point
    Andrew , thank you for your great work, let me explain how scenery works , the developer creates the base scenery (Runways aprons Photo Real image of the ground and models of the objects to add . He has the originals , with these some files are compiled (xxx,.bgl) some are scenery files and others are objects files , in general the scenery files from FSX work OK in P3D but the objects and particularly animated (by SIM variables) do not. Here I come to make all this work from approx 10 years ago to convert all to P3D , all I can do is run every library (and its objects) through a program called Model Converter X, MCX is magic it does its work when IT CAN... unfortunately not all models can be converted thats why there are some missing , the ones that are not missing and are black in texture sometimes can be fixed , I say sometimes because the dev's create a Library of objects and they get reused in various sceneries , this they apply using placement files , this files refer to the objects by a GUID not by name , so I cannot decipher what they are. As you see I have run 600Mb of objects through this converter and I think I got a pretty good outcome. I will continue to fix as much as I can , but as I said my team of programmers and investigators is working flat out to make the best of what we have. Jorge ps I do not think there are any developers in OZx developing for P3D . It is very different from FSX. Sorry I forgot to include this folder in the latest Windsock delivery paste it in C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\SimObjects\ overwriting the existing folder.. Jorge OZx_WS_Wh.zip

    @ClemWu In my few years of being in OZx I haven't been able to contribute much, my mind boggles at what goes into developing scenery. When everyone starts talking dev talk I barely have a clue as to what the different file types do or how they are made. So when it is something straightforward like checking over scenery for missing items, that is certainly something I can do!! I've got an eye for detail and know when something doesn't look right in the Flight Sim. So it's my time to try help out, it's the least I can do considering I take advantage of all the work the devs do!!

    G'day fello flight simmers. Today I would like to share with you something new and special for the Australian flight simulation community. For many years the demand for PR sceneries and detailed airports and regions has been constantly growing. Now little know developer Norm Gibson from Gibsonsceneries has been toiling away for many thousands of hours to bring us all his first commercial software addon. Like many of us, Norm wanted more from his flight sim experience and has taken his passion to the last frontier of Australia. The Northern Territory. This product is compiled from resampled from 15m Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery produced by Earthstar Geographics, the same Imagery is used in various Commercial and Military Simulators. The goal of Gibson Sceneries is to cover large areas of real scenery at economical prices for the flight simulator enthusiast or professional whether it be for simulating fast Tactical Jet Fighters, Military Transport flights, Commuter and Domestic Airline flights or General Aviation Aircraft flying at medium to high altitudes.The scenery is perfect for enroute flight simulation. Take-off from a detailed airport, climb and fly en-route over "real" world scenery then descend into one of your other detailed airports. This is PR only, so Airports or autogen are not included. But I can say that Aussiex, Ant's, Aerosoft & Orbx sotware package addons work perfectly with this pr. The blends are extremely welldone. The scenery is not suited for low level VFR flights in slow aircraft, although the scenery is acceptable in low and fast Tactical Fighter aircraft.The scenery adds to the realism of simulated flight whether it be for recreating historical missions, commercial airline flights, military training or general aviation interest. This is best suited at this point in time to High altitude flying, be it IFR or VFR as thats where you will get the best and the most out of this package. Shallow coastal water imagery is blended with the simulated water to give a natural look to the coastlines. The PR also shows every real world and existing Airport, airfeild, farm or private strip throughout the entire Northern Territory. This initself allows for the increased development of Third party airfields to be included into this fantastic Package. The PR covers border to border coverage and shows some of the most spectacular locations across the NT. I have spent many hours flying the NT package and throughouly enjoyed every minute of what I see out the window of the aircraft. I love the fact that I can see clearly every creek, river, mountian, key locations such as Kakadu, Lichfeild national park,Mines, Bush fires and the list goes on. If you do decide to do a low level run up one of the many creeks and rivers, just watch out for the crocs.. Ok so lets look at which platforms are supported with this awesome PR package.The PR package is ready for purchase and Downloading for Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX & SE, Lockheed Martin Prepar3d v1, v2, v3 & v4. You can get it buy simply going over to http://www.gibsonsceneries.com and purchasing the NT. The pricing is very reasonable $19.95 USD. If you want to see more of Australia get the PR treatment, then do yourself and your flying experience a favour and get over to Gibson Sceneries and not only support Norm, but also the growth of the Australian flight simulation community. I firmly believe that this is a worthy investment for my flight simulation experience and realistically the $19.95 USD will never cover the cost of the thousands of development hours that has been put into making this package for all of us. Below are a whole series of pictures that I took whilst I was flying all around the NT. These are not the Developers images and do not reflect the quality of his fantastic images that he has taken to showcase this product. Like the old saying is for the NT, If you never never go, you will never never know and no greater statement could be said for this PR package. For those of you who are skeptical about screenshots, there is also a link below which I loved. QANTAS Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=127&v=qAWNhqI6BWI RAAF C-130 Promotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT58DxRBgIg&t=255s I throughly look forward to getting your feed back and comments on my first impressions of this PR package and certainly look forward to seeing the other states and territories of Australia being done. Remember buy purchasing this product, this not only supports Gibson Sceneries and the Global flight simulation community, but it also significantly contributes to the purchase of more PR for Australia. If there is enough support for the Product, Gibson sceneries may even be able to purchase a much higher Resolution PR supply to truely make our flying experience "As Real As It Gets". A Special Thanks must got out to Norm & Gibson Sceneries for creating a fantastic product.
