Still waiting too. I ordered ver 1.62 a couple weeks ago that qualifies for free upgrade and, according to the purchase terms, I should be automatically notified of the availability of the upgrade.So I guess I'll keep waiting untill at least monday, then will see...Meanwhile, it'll be nice though, if someone either gets the full package or the upgrade notification, that he/she informs us in this thread.ThanksHugo

V2 is nice ... but then I'm biased. Yes there are modelling processes that Rhino/gmax/3DMax do better, but so far, all the test models I've compiled into FS2002 and CFS2 run through without a program-induced problem (let's not get into the designer-indiced problems).Felix/FFDSPegasus Aviation Design

I just got the e-mail at about 10:00 pm. The e-mail says 2nd(??) notification. Seems the first notification was never recevied by a large number of people, myself included. Abacus appears to be working late this weekend to get this great product out! I tip my hat to them!!Paul B.KSMS/KSSC

Caution on the help file. It is substantially complete on the basics of the program and on the new features (animation /texturing).Some sections remain intact from v1, but they substantially apply to v2.Abacus has a number of Help file changes being catalogued and an update will be made.If you get any help file inconsistencies, please send them to Abacus, or post away...Felix/FFDSPegasus Aviation Design

When I called Friday, the lady said I was on top of the stack. I prepurchased on Nov 1st. So, hopefully yours will be forthcoming soon. Best,Dave

Have any of you guys imported a previous model into V2? Let us know if there are any pitfalls for us less experienced people to watch out for. I have a P39 Airacobra done except for textures and animation, and next week I plan to order V2.John Woodward

You should *not* get any problems opening a v1 model into v2.Since you're still working on a v1 file, I will recommend that you start naming your parts according to the Makemdl SDK so you don't have to do it all over again.>Have any of you guys imported a previous model into V2?

I've been playing with my copy since Sunday... WOW I love it. I've been haveing a couple of problems getting exactly what I want but that's just me learning things.... With a little more practice it will be easier than AA for animation and more flexible than making SDL Macros. I've been using my Norseman as a test mule to learn the in's and out of it and it now has reflective textures, working suspention and even a moving yoke in the VC... this program has alot of power.Brian

You've had some nice FSDS creations Brian... Can't wait to see your results with other aircraft :)I'd love to see you redo the Lancair IV-P.... It's the best there is--only things I could think of to make it better is to move the horizontal stab higher (it's mounted right where the vert stab meets the fuse), and to make the pax and pilots side windows a bit shorter. Add reflections to that, and some other FSDS tricks, and you'd have a great rerelease and proof of concept for FSDS 2.0I love your Lancair, as it features dynamic wing views... A must for GA aircraft, I think.For Lancair fans, here's some great shots:http://www.lancair.com/flash/photos/index.html-John
