  1. Gack! Of course we didn't. Didn't ask Lockheed, Boeing, and Blackburn either (don't mention any models). I guess we better run for cover... Guys, to put one matter to rest. Whilst I am retiring from the hobby I have passed the source files on to a well-known modeller, who has my full permission to do with them whatever he wants. But the what, and the if and when, will be up to him to announce in due course. --Manfred
  2. @cepact, maybe you are right, but indeed you are missing something. They deny it's buggy; and they are making money on the portover, the upload server they are using has a section that tells you how you can "Earn MONEY - you can earn money by sharing your files". In our readme we state that no portover or indeed any mods may be made without permission, and no money was to be made from it in any form or shape. I happen to stand by that. Wouldn't you? @skully, do you really think, seeing where that organization operates from and how it behaves, seeking "legal recourse" would help one little bit? (I fear I may may regret that comment... ) --Manfred
  3. You are right, Keith. As far as I am concerned that is already decided.
  4. Thank you Joni, for removing the video, appreciate it. The C-47 is the 'Top Model' at allfightsmod at the moment, and they are happily carrying on offering it. And blocking any communication addressing the piracy issue. So they know full well what they are doing. This is a game you can't win. But I guess you can quit. --Manfred
  5. Dear fellow simmers,As we all know here, piracy is a terrible thing. Our Digital Dakota Works team has just seen a new variant of it, a quick and decidedly dirty MSFS2020 portover of our popular freeware C-47. As was to be expected, the thing is largely dysfunctional in MSFS, causes CTD’s, and generally looks and flies terrible. Still, the downloads go into thousands. Because I am given a “credit” in the upload wrapper - clickbait, clearly - these faults attach to my name and some simmers are even asking what am I going to do about them.For the record: I am not going to give permission for a MSFS portover, ever.I was able to talk to two PD servers that had the illicit upload and persuaded them to take it down, and to their credit, they did and apologized for it.There is one organization that does not respond to multiple contact form messages and continues to have it on offer. The site goes by the name of Allflightmods.com: The biggest all flight simulator mods website. The uploader hides behind the name Treyeastland, on another upload it was somebody named Zach Gloss. I would be happy to speak to these people, but am unable to contact either or the webmaster of the site. Perhaps if they see this post they can drop me a line.Here is my request to all simmers: do not download it, do not fly it, and if you see any pics or vids or threads related to it make it a point to comment and possibly link to this thread.Many thanks.Manfred Jahn
  6. Many thanks, Charlie, Brian has taken care of it. Best, Manfred
  7. Bumpity! 72 views and two likes, but no action? Who best to contact on this, I wonder? This horrible rogue upload is five years old, yes, and still being downloaded as I write... maybe I should just forget about it? Then there is this ... from AVSIM's Terms of Service:
  8. Found this file in the library after reading a help request for it on another forum. In the readme file, author David Kolas does not give any credit to the possible contribution of any other developers. As a matter of fact that contribution is rather substantial as large parts of the upload are directly related to the freeware FSX Basler BT-67 project by M. Jahn (myself) and team in 2012, available at Flightsim.com or Fly Away, see https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/14113/fsx-basler-bt-67-base-pack-v2/ https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?do=copyright&fid=167205 Specifically, Mr. Kolas's exterior model is a retro port of M. Jahn's exterior FSX model, the "Alfred Wegener" textures are identically named downsized versions of Daniel Fuernkaes's original textures, the aircraft.cfg is largely identical with Alexander Metzger's original work, the ref and check files are identical versions of our 2012 files, as are the xml gauges by Hansjoerg Naegele. In our own 2012 readme we stated, Hope some appropriate action will be taken. Manfred Jahn
  9. Great video review, gave it a Like, which I rarely do. You are right about the more refined modeling of the AH version, also the comment that PBR isn't the be all and end all of things. Texturewise, I am not 100 percent sure - as apparently you don't have the latest native 4.5 PBR mjahn version with Tufun's 4096 textures, which he spent months counting and creating? (Search Sim Outhouse Library under 'KN660'). In that respect your review is not really an "actual comparison" of the two. I would also recommend the Outhouse thread http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php/119098-Aeroplane-Heaven-C-47-DC-3-is-out! which makes some interesting points re texture artefacts (cp. your 41:26) and undercarriage, and some have expressed some misgivings as to whether it is really a good idea to open the 'hamburger door' in order to start an engine, even if only the right one. Think of the guy who has to close the door after #2 has started up. But admittedly these are all things that can and probably will be rectified.
  10. Definitely shouldn't be very small mouse areas. Charlie did report a solution, so maybe re-check your aircraft.cfg and make sure you only have one [radios] section, and it is the one supplied in the zip. --Manfred
  11. Mike, did you click the displayed numbers (i.e, not the knobs)?
