erm................. just a tiny question

I've got the A1-A Skyraider modification for FS2004by R. Spaan, I also got all the repaints for it that I could find on avsim, it totals up to 9 different ones Smile

Is that the same Skyraider you are using ??


fled
Smile


Yessir, it is.

Package deal? I dont' have the repaints and would hate to overwite your cfg files.

Hey did you try that OH-6 out yet, Mr. Beta tester???

:..although I might suggest we stray a bit and go with a Greg Knoll board...more of a timely classic from the era and better for Lance to ride the nose on....one of the best damn noseriders around.....


...I like his cutback, too. I think he's got the best cutback there is.

Excellent. Hopefully we'll hear the same from Fled soon, and fr8ycat, can we call this a wrap?

Also, for fr8ycat - what do you think about also packaging this in the full mission-file that will include other stuff (planes, maps, etc)? Would you consider granting permission for that?


If testers say it's good, I say wrap her up.

Permission granted. That was my main reason for offering the update Wink

I can tweak and maybe work in a few other thigns in the effects if anyone has thoughts...just nothing too overboard please....This WILL be good, and WILL happen! Smile


Can you and Fr8ycat put a surfboard on the skids of a UH-1C? I'm thinking a Yader Spoon, the 8-6.....and bring a board for Lance.....

EXCELLENT idea! We could use a Surf Loach at the Pigsty afterwards anyway, plenty of beach around.....although I might suggest we stray a bit and go with a Greg Knoll board...more of a timely classic from the era and better for Lance to ride the nose on....one of the best damn noseriders around.....

Absolutely, you can suggest yelloow, and I'll make that happen right away. I had questions about this already, and admittedly my own practical experience with this is comes only out of Hollywood, where I remember pink from "Apocalypse Now" (where Lance activates a pinkish smoke grenade on the boat and says "hey look! Purple Haze!") and other movies, but I hadn't had time to re-watch "We Were Soldiers" or more accurate films. Been yearnign for some feedback on that, so Yellow it is!

As for the rest, take your time! I can tweak and maybe work in a few other thigns in the effects if anyone has thoughts...just nothing too overboard please....This WILL be good, and WILL happen! Smile

And one more thing for those of you who tried the flight plan(s) and the Com-C MilFlight BGL scenery file with waypoints and smoke effects - pink smoke at the LZ's for the helo's, and white smoke and a coulpe of fires near Khe Sanh for the Skyraiders - did you see these smoke effects and are they acceptable?

...and Ascout will need some time on Phu Bai. No rush, and that's the status from this perspective.


Can I respectfully suggest "yellow" instead of pink. Personally, I don't recall pink (at least it wasn't common) and it wouldn't be as visible, anyway. More common colors in the field tended to be white, violet, yellow, and red (red might be hard to see).

I might be a bit longer on Phu Bai because Al has graciously consented to build some custom macros for the Terminal/Tower (my shape is good, but color is wrong)...and he can better scale it to reality. He is also working on some custome white trailers for the 8th RRU area instead of the lashup barracks I was originally using. Probably not important to some, but it will be those personally familiar with the place in reality. I think he can knock this out rather quick, but I'm leaving on Wednesday for Brasil for a week or so. Should be able to wrap up just after if not before. I've made substantive and worthwhile changes that greatly enhance the realism of the place (a lot of it owed to Al's already available macros, which I only recently acquired). It'll be worth it!

In talking to Shadow_bshwckr, we both agree it may be sensible to keep the SEA Terrain Mesh as a seperate download since it's so large, however if the freeware license allows it we can at least make an installer for this purpose rather than 4 seperate ZIP files as it is now.

If all goes well we could have a prototype "package" file or two sometime late this weekend or within a week at most possibly....it would be a prototype for additional MP testing only, since we want to take our time and get it right I believe, and Ascout will need some time on Phu Bai. No rush, and that's the status from this perspective.

Hey Ascout, I think this is what you were singing to yourself when you took that screen shot, Bad Boys, Bad Boys, What ya gonna do, What ya gonna do when we come for you! LOL!!!!! Twisted Evil

Fr8ycat and Stoopy, I took the new helo out for a test flight tonight, and it is sweet. All gauges are where they are supposed to be, and the gun works great. I took her through her paces, and did a complete roll and it worked perfectly. I did a few hammerhead stalls, turns,climbs,dives, speed runs and hovers. It is a breeze to fly, and it handles great. If there were anyone down there at Phu Bai watching me, they would have thought I lost my mind, the way I pushed the aircraft. It still performed perfecly. It's was almost as if I thought of a maneuver, the helicopter did it, without hesitation. I looked her over preatty closely and didn't see anything that stands out. It is a very responsive helicopter, and I like it. I know what I will be flying for the mission, probably the gun version. I like the WP grenades hanging on the wire and on the door frame. Nice touch.
