Re: I'm back

Is that picture in your signature from SA:MP? Which server(s) do/did you play on?

Re: Conversation with Soji - Results

I have a couple of suggestions for future questions: 1.) Can you (finally) make YS Flight open source? Progress in certain areas would increase ten fold, since it takes Soji seemingly forever to make even the smallest update. 2.) Can you allow us to press keys during automated (demo) dogfights/acrob...

Re: Any high-quality tankers?

In one of Major's packs, there is a very high quality A330 M.R.T.T. that has an animated control wheel (along with animated pilot/copilot arms).

Re: 360 Degrees of Aviation

You've got it backwards; the FJ-4 is a derivative of the F-86. Anyway; a famous acrobatic/fighter/test pilot by the name of Bob Hoover (whom just about every pilot has heard of) had test flown the F-86 Sabre. Of the numerous aircraft that Bob had the pleasure of flying, he was most famous for piloti...

Re: 360 Degrees of Aviation

The power plant used in the F-11 Tiger, the Wright J65, had also powered this U.S. Navy fighter:

Re: Enter the Cyclone

Just wondering; are you the same "Kestrel" that used to fly with Yombat a couple of years ago?

Re: 360 Degrees of Aviation

You could say that the Mig-15 has a few "unintentional" cousins. The engine used by the Mig-15, the Klimov VK-1, was a slightly-modified version of the British Rolls Royce Nene. In the United States, the Nene was license built as the Pratt & Whitney J42, which went on to power this aircraft: http://...

Re: Continuous smoke?

Well, I managed to get the smoke to stay on indefinitely, but I ended up cheating and using StickyKeys. It seems to work quite well, although you're limited to using Shift, Ctrl, Windows Key, and Alt for smoke activation. If I can get this to work through normal means (ie: not using StickyKeys), the...

Re: Continuous smoke?

Yeah, I had realized what decaff was talking about after editing that post. I've been messing around with some of the config files (I had also tried to make the smoke disappear entirely so that missiles would leave no trail, but I've only been able to disable smoke for aircraft) and used his method ...

Re: Continuous smoke?

Yes, I had read about that method in one of the threads that I had found while performing the search last night (I believe that the thread was about simulating contrails for a B-52 by using smoke), but according to the posters, this only works on a Mac. I'm looking for a way to get this to work on a...

Continuous smoke?

Hello. I had run a search for this last night, although I couldn't find any relevant information. To the point; is there a way to keep your tail/wingtip smoke running continuously (on a PC, mind you) without having to hold down the fire/smoke key? Any response would be greatly appreciated, thanks in...
