  1. Pretty sure they're in the individual aircraft texture files in FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes/…. The default 747-400, for instance, has ten texture folders listed for it. John
  2. 10 Percent of Critical F-22 Fleet Reportedly Damaged or Destroyed by Hurricane Michael https://pjmedia.com/trending/10-percent-of-critical-f-22-fleet-reportedly-damaged-or-destroyed-by-hurricane-michael/ Illustrating once again that capping production at about 190 airframes was short-sighted. As I understand it, all that were flyable were flown out and those remaining could not be flown for some technical (or administrative) reason. I don't claim to know how the AF manages this kind of thing and this observation is, of course, made with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. I'll just say this - it seems as if, in circumstances like this, some kind of administrative process should permit limited ferry flights of high-value AC that are not necessarily fully functional, with appropriate restrictions on speed, altitude, power settings, g-loadings, pressurization, take-off weight, routing, etc. etc. when faced with this kind of environmental threat. Maybe this exists already and possibly these airframes had such serious problems that they simply could not be flown under any circumstances - I really don't know one way or the other. There are some environmental challenges to hardware that just can't be guarded against - tornadoes, for instance. This particular storm was a fast-mover and the area only had about three days of credible warnings to protect their assets, vice the normal seven or so. That may have been a factor. I suppose it's also possible that they had judged the hangar(s) to be storm-proof. If so, that turned out to be wrong. I think all of the F-22s affected were stored inside hangars, but some of the buildings I saw photos of were, though not collapsed, at least heavily damaged and opened up to the environment. Anyway, a disaster for the fleet of F-22s. I suspect some heads will roll. John
  3. Ouch. Good thing no serious injuries resulted - that wasn't a given and there had to be some luck involved in that. I'm guessing this guy is going to be re-assigned to civilian life as soon as he gets out of the stockade, though this being Europe maybe they'll give him a medal and a promotion instead. John
  4. Hmmm... have to think about this a little. Given the probable size of the user base still on FSX-SE and, potentially, also still on the older P3D 32-bit versions, I'm inclined to question this from a "support for the community" point of view. On the other hand, they're a commercial company with a moral and legal obligation to remain viable and turn a profit for their owners/shareholders. P3D V4 and, possibly X-Plane, is almost certainly where the money is, going forward. Many/most who are still using FSX/FSX-SE and earlier versions of P3D are doing so because they can't or don't want to upgrade their hardware. If that's the case, neither are those users likely to be spending a lot of money on new software for their systems. If any of that is valid, so is Captain Sim's decision. I guess the bottom line is that CS are perfectly within their legal rights to do this, just as users are within their rights to "vote with their wallets" by supporting or not supporting companies whose policies they don't like.

  7. Originally there was some confusion whether this was an undershoot or an overrun. Since the AC was still floating some speculated that it pivoted on a grounded engine and was pointing opposite the way it landed. That turns out not to be the case and it was in fact an undershoot. John
  8. Was reading this article earlier tonight. Happy nobody go hurt. Must have been great cabin service with approx. 3 pax per crew member. John

    Road hogs!

    It may be possible to edit the Orbx version of the airport in ADE. I'm not sure as I don't have any Orbx stuff and don't know how the library files are handled, but there's an "Open Airport from BGL file" option under the File menu pad in ADE. Another option might to be to ask Orbx on their web site. John

    TRACK-IR question

    What's to laugh at. Been there, done that. Hope it goes OK for you. John
  13. If you ever used the old AFCAD for FS9, this should feel pretty familiar. You do have to define taxi paths to connect your new parking spots to the runway(s) and other taxiways, and if there are no start points you'll have to add them to the runway(s) too. Military fields in FS often lack these features which is why traffic and ATC normally (mis)behave differently at those than at normal airports. It's all drag and drop and really pretty easy. You cannot save an edited airport to the original file it came from for a number of reasons so when you have it the way you want it, compile it and then save to a different filename (usually [your initials]-[airport ICAO Code], which ADE tries to do for you). After it's compiled, put the bgl file for the new airport in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder and be sure that Addon-Scenery is in the scenery list in FS Settings and is not un-checked. It sounds complicated but really is not too bad. John
  14. Don't know for sure, but like AH1, you will find your plane exactly where you left it last time you flew it. John
  15. It's very easy with the freeware ADE from Scruffy Duck Software. John

    TRACK-IR question

    If re-center doesn't do what you want, elevate yourself slightly in your chair, press Re-center, then lower yourself to a more natural position. It will be as if you lowered the seat. Don't know if there's a way to change the config but that should work. John
  17. allardjd

    TRACK-IR question

    It's whatever key is assigned to "Re-center", F12 by default, unless you set it to something else in the Natural Point TrackIR software. Adjust your position in your chair, turn your head to get exactly the view you want and push the re-center key. Great to do if you're slouching after an hour - just re-center and continue to slouch. John
  18. Not exactly flight simulator specific, but as active users of the Internet, this is something most of us are likely to be interested in and/or affected by... https://apnews.com/191032549cca44b9b1b74e1d130a04e5/Microsoft's-anti-hacking-efforts-make-it-an-internet-cop This is a really interesting, long-standing effort by Microsoft but I was not aware of it until I saw this article Not sure yet if this activity is as lily-white as advertised - I'm the skeptical type - but, as described, it certainly seems preferable to the naked political bias of recent actions by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google, and probably some of the other social media mega-players. On the surface at least, it appears Microsoft is doing something that seems laudable. My local computer shop guru, Jon, has long maintained that MS has a vested interest in all of us having a positive experience when using their OS and because of that he's always trusted their security software, e.g. MS Security Essentials, et al, over the other commercial and freeware varieties. He believes those outfits' best interests are served by keeping us scared to death all the time, so we eagerly buy and use thier products. Jon doesn't profess that their products don't do what they are supposed to but that the companies are very good at keeping us constantly nervous. MS, on the other hand, would like us constantly comfortable because they are the ones providing the platform we're using. I have to say, that Jon's opinoin makes some sense to me. Applied to the subject of the article, this might indicate that MS really is doing something worthwhile here. I've long had a serious mistrust of all the social media platforms and stay away from most of them as much as I can, though haven't been able to avoid some interplay with Google and to a lesser extent, YouTube. I would if I could. In my opinion, MS is a bit better than the rest, less nakedly biased and, most importantly, with a revenue stream other than presenting ads to users or selling access to users or their data to advertisers, political organizations and other even more odiferous enterprises. I get almost all my news from the internet, and find recent initiatives to attack "hate speech" troubling. The problem, of course, is who defines what constitutes "hate speech". John
  19. Other than operations and schedule impact from being short one aircraft, and possibly getting raked over the coals by the NTSB for security of a parked airplane, I'm thinking the company really isn't going to get hurt too bad by this - barring a lawsuit coming out of the woodwork from someone. That's kind of hard to predict - lawyers are gonna' lawyer. The big loser will be the insurance company and they charge everyone enough for their insurance coverage to be able to afford to cover a hull loss now and then. It's what insurance companies do. As aircraft go, this was not even a particularly expensive one. The people I feel worst about are this guy's family, who must be devastated by all this. John
  20. Some insurance company somewhere is definitely not happy. That's a pretty expensive way to commit suicide. John
  21. Much easier for them to extract "intelligence" from digital data as opposed to voice pickup, though that can and is done too. It's a pretty safe assumption that ANYTHING you put in an e-mail, text, on-line post, chat room, etc. is being logged and saved by someone, probably several someones. In most cases, they are after your preferences, buying habits, financial status, etc. for the purposes of targeted advertising, but there are some more nefarious things going on too. John
