Anyone, I hate to ask silly questions, but what are the keyboard commands for getting this incredible looking package to simulate cat-shots? Do I need to run something like the Arrestor Cables program too?Keith

I have installed this great add-on and enjoy the heck out of it. However some of the members of our group at www.simflite.com have flown on my computer and then installed on theirs and have a problem. On my system I have steam vents on all cats when not primed for launch. No body else seems to have this effect and I can not figure it out...If I can learn how to attach a .jpg to this post to show the effect I will. Does anyone else have this effect or do I have a different .fx file I don't know about causing this steam. ??fisheye

That is very nice to see steam vents on all cats. I only have one but located at the very front of the carrier which doesn't look right.I understand that this version2 supposed to have all steam ventsJimmy

The only thing I noticed about steam during the last time I flew patterns to NIMITZ, was that while on downwind I glanced over at the deck and saw that the steam effect was still visible. As I prepared to make my turn to final the effect reset itself, and continued to work properly on each of the cats. All else is great for me!

I noticed that the picture that I first posted didn't really show the effects that well. Here is a close up that shows what I am talking about more clearly. Posted picture....

This is so nice, I wondered what effect file control the steam? I used the latest version (2).Jimmy

Wow, I am still flying carrier ops. This is a great package. If you minimize FSX and click the aircarrier icon again, you can place two carriers.The only thing that it would take to make it better than * would be the ability to talk to the LSO or Carrier Tower.....Question for someone out there?I have been flying the IRIS f-14. Dino's t-45 and Razbam EA-6b for carrier ops (all work well) but the Default f-18 bounces like a rubber ball when catching the wire. any fix for that?Gary

Hi Fisheye,What kind of formation configuration did you select?I cannot come up with a destroyer close to your carrier like in the picture.The only steam effect I have is during catapult, but not with all 4 catsJimmy

Somewhat off topic,but it was recommended to use also aicar2r2,which I downloaded,but can't get to work properly.There is a java file which is downloaded from java.sun.com,i.e. JRE 1.5.This file gives an error on my system,which is Vista home premium.Any ideas?Ron

I don't remember but it was one of the ones in the drop down list I think....I am over seventy so my memory doesn't serve me well these days. Also some of my group has asked me where I got the missions that are using the Nimitz and Ike but I can not find where I got them from, the original downloads or another pkg I downloaded..Any help on this??

To answer some of the questions about what I installed to get these pictures I will list the file names and sites downloaded from.Avsim.com AIcarriers2.zipflightsim.com uss_nimitz_ike_version2.zip which contains the Patuxent and chopper. I still have not found out where the missions came from unless they are inside one of these files....I don't remember any other files downloaded or installed for these carriers.....PS you have to have Java installed in order to open a .jar file which is in these files otherwise you will get an error..... Another thing, please be sure to move the effect files into the FSX Effects folder or you will notice an absence of most of the neat things the author has included in these works of art...

I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUTWhen I received so many questions about how I got the nice steam effects and the launch lights on the cats it got me thinking. It has been worrying me trying to figure out how these effects got installed. Then it hit me, I had downloaded a program that added a mission for the carriers called CV69-12.zip by Ed Olander. This added not only the mission but all of the effects that I couldn't explain to everyone here and in our group at simflite.com. I had been flying the mission while taking my screenshots. I found the file available on SimOuthouse and Simviation but not on Avsim or Flightsim.com. Now I can rest from the irritation of not being able to remember what I had done... But I guess that comes with age ....fisheye
