Great job on all of these! And the file sizes are alright even for dial-up uses....-JohnEdit: I wanted to ask--Did Erick use the same wing on the 10 as the 30 and 40? The wing on the 10 series is 10 ft. shorter than the others (155 ft vs 165 ft).... They look the same to me.... But, they also look awesome--great detail. The AA paint on the base 10 series is excellent!

Thx MikeAnother excellent job you guys have done.By the way I am having problems installing the 10-40 variant.All other models installed without problems however the 10-40 will not show up in the menu. I installed as per usual and even changed the ui manufacturer in the cfg from FFX to McDonnell Douglas and it still doesnt show up.Do you have any suggestions as to what might be the problem or is everyone else experiencing the same thing.CheersLozza

Copy the name of the air file and put it on that line. On the -40 the air file name was typed in wrong on the "sim" line, that's all. That will fix it all up for you :)

Yeah, sorry about that. :-( Was a long day yesterday getting all of these packaged and uploaded and edited etc. That was the only file affected and it's only the one from our site. I was told about it quickly enough that the one in the library here at AVSIM is ok.Mikehttp://sgair.net/mike/mike/mike_small.jpg

"The 10's wings are shorter. We made sure of that."No biggie Mike, but they are the same wing, meaning the 10 has the 30's wing... Lined each up on the same runway at Sky Harbor, which is 150 wide, then looked straight down in spot view. The wings end at the same spot, just about 8ft. over the edge of the runway on each side, equalling approx. 165 ft, the width of the 30 and 40's wing.If you look back from the cockpit at the wing view, one giveaway is the "interior" wing of the 10 series has the center rear gear coming out of it....I don't really care--the only wing which rivals this one in detail and texturing may be POSky's 747-400.... And that included AA paint for the 10 series is amazing--reflections off, the dynamic shine makes it look as photoreal as I've ever seen. I can't think of a DC-10 this well done anywhere, payware or freeware.You guys need to take a big break.... Can't get any better than what you've done in this project...-John

Well John I'm glad to hear that it's not an issue with you , but I must add that I can prove that the wings are shorter. :( And for the center gear being visable in VC view, in our haste, we couldn't yet completely remove it, you see we actually went backwards in the design. We built the Series 40 1st and went backwards from there. Easier changes to the model going from more to less. The "glitches" will be addressed in the upgrade. Now go fly the thing and put away the tape measure. :(Mikehttp://sgair.net/mike/mike/mike_small.jpgp.s. got a pic especially for you John in the screen shot forum.

Ouch Mike! Nuff said... I'll delete the aircraft if it bothers you so... Dare I raise an issue!!!! It's trivial, let's move on! But if you want, I'll post my own pics tonight showing that they are indeed the same size..... Geeshhhhhh....

Mike,Just a question (advice?). I downloaded a few of the new FFX DC10 and I face a problem I never had before: for the three Dc10 I got, I can see their preview inside FS2002 (that tells me that the model is OK) but soon I load the aircraft FS closes immediately (no error message) and I

I have a question :How come that all yur models looks just as detailed as most others and still are generally better on framerates.(Compared to Meljet and Aerodesign as an example)

Hey:I think the virtual cabins and cockpits are a lot of polygons (on any aircraft), so those make your frames go down. I am not sure, since I don't design, but I think that's the way it goes.Cheers,[a href=http://sgair.net" target="_blank]http://sgair.net/mike/banners/daniel_small.jpg [/a]Click the Banner to visit the FFX Website.

Mike,Thanks for your input. No, even with the default B737_400 panel it does not work. I understand that nobody is having this prolem! But I am an experienced user and to be honest I have no idea why this is happening - and I have downloaded many stuff! It could from the model used in this DC10

Ok I think I know what the problem is. You didn't specify which model it was that was giving you the problems, but I have a strong feeling it's the 40 series. There's a simple fix to it. On that particular config file during editing, I forgot to change the sim line to read FFXDC1040. A few people had that problem, Only the file that was uploaded to our site was affected. The others uploaded to the other sites are all fine. I'll get that file changed today.Just go to your series 40 aircraft folder, copy the airfile name, open up your aircraft config file and paste over the entry in the sim line and it should be fine. I hope this solves your problem. If that's not the case and your still having problems, then possibly you got a corrupt file and you will need to re-download that bird. Sometimes this happens when so many people are downloading the same file at the same time. Also check to make sure there is a model and model config file in the model folder. The model line should say the series (30, 40 etc) and the folder should be named model.30 or 40 etc.Email me at mike@sgair.net if your still having problems.Mikehttp://sgair.net/mike/mike/mike_small.jpg

Mike,Many thanks for your help. Yes, there was a line wrong at the aircraft.cfg. I corrected that and I am already enjoying your beautiful aircraft!. Thanks for sharing your work! I do miss though a nice panel. I really regret that Darim (from FFG) couldn
