  2. Just a quick question - I have been out of this forum for a few years now ... why am I getting emails saying "[xyz user] reported a post", or "[xyz user] has posted a post in a topic requiring approval" ??? Not that I'm upset or anything, just curious...
  3. Post OZx DVD Swap Requests Here

    Hi Macca, I'm just around the corner from you at Paradise Point, so please let me know the next time there's a large download (eg v3.0) and I can get it to you - hand delivered!
  4. Hi Steve, Just checking in - have you had any progress, or are you still flat out? No pressure, just wondering ....
  5. Thanks Steve, Hadn't forgotten, just awful busy!
  6. Hi Steve, Graham Eccleston was the one who did the repaint for YMAV airshow edition, but he says it was for static AI aircraft, and "would not pass quality control for use on a flyable aircraft." Therefore, there are no toes to stand on - if you are able to do it, it would be appreciated. Regards, Adam
  7. Hi Steve, Thanks for that find - I'll message John and see if he can provide the author for it, and I'll go from there.
  8. Hi Steve, At this stage, there's no rush - like you, real life gets in the way ... Airliners.net link <-- there's the fixed link Unfortunately, OVM was not at the airshow on the day I looked at the static displays, so there are no other shots that I know of. Maybe there's someone near Essendon airport that could take some more source shots.... THanks for the offer - let me know if you have any other questions, Adam
  9. Well, after some followup, I have permission to do a repaint on the provision that the owner of the aircraft can have a copy for himself and his customers. The aircraft is VH-OVM, and some source photos can be found here http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.sear...inct_entry=true http://jetphotos.net/showphotos.php?regsearch=VH-OVM There is a chance that this ol' bird may be at the air show next weekend, so if there is more detail required, I can probably get it for you. I don't need the whole DX10 reflections and detail, but if it could be done as an option or a 2nd version, it would be greatly appreciated! [update - he was there on the Friday, but I did not get to see him ... bummer!] I am guessing that Finney or squeeker could do this, as they have done default DC-3s. Whoever takes it on, I would need permission/clearance to be able to use it in some freeware adventures/mission that I am doing based on real life charters that this plane does out of Essendon (http://www.shortstop.com.au/index.html). Please note: this is not a commercial venture - I am not selling the repaint or the mission, nor will the owners of the actual aircraft be allowed to sell any of the FSX content created. Please PM me if you have any questions (just so we don't clutter the boards).
  10. Great Australian Air Rally 2009?

    Yeah, given that most of this is AU_Red, there's not much there that will be able to be showcased. I was planning to promote FTX & OzX to the overseas competitors in the event. Given that there's not many AU_Green airfields (yet - v2.0??), then there is not much chance of getting some AU_Red ones between now and the event start ...
  11. Great Australian Air Rally 2009?

    The official website is up and registration opens tomorrow! Looks like the focus is more VOR/DME/NDB navigation rather than straight line. With the exception of East Timor, this will be a great showcase for AU_Green and the (much anticipated) AU_Red, and the event finishes at Jandakot. Looking at the flight plan, can anyone confirm which airfields are covered in OzX or FTX (except Jandakot)?

  12. Australian ICAO list

    Yes, I am. I have a work in progress that will be a hybrid of "here is an airfield and all of its particulars" (runways, alt, lat, long, etc), coupled with "and here are details of where you can find FSX/FS9/XPlane downloads for it, and the details of who built it". This will be designed to be multi-purpose in that general users can vote for airfields they'd like to see developed and airfields they like, and devs can see what's popular and flag an airfield as work in progress, etc, etc. Essentially, I want it to be a one-stop shop reference point for not only Australia (points back to OZx & ORBX & private builders), but eventually spanning the globe. We are now finalising some of the more complicated parts of the system, and hope to have it up and ready by the end of the year - I'll put out some calls for beta testers soon. Adam
