  1. Hello!

    I have just stumbled upon your very instructive videos about sextant navigation.

    I just wanted to point out that a copy-website of the US Navy online almanac is available here https://clockwk.com/apps/USNOclone/

    You may want to update the video description with a link to the clone site.

    Thank you again for bringing this whole world of celestial nav to our sims.

  3. Hello, For the Tracker lovers saddened by the end of the career of the French TurboFirecats, I have just released an upgrade package for Milton Shupe's S2T Civilian Tracker that fixes a few discrepencies and includes the interface with both FFX and Pelicandrome4FFX. Check it out! http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?action=jump&catid=34&id=27671
  4. Hello fellow simmers! I am pleased to announce that my Pelicandrome4FFX package has just been uploaded to the file library! The download link will be provided in another post as soon as possible. This package provides a set of 3D models and XML gauges enhancing the experience of the virtual firefighting pilot that relies on the must-have FireFighterX module by Lorby-SI (to be purchased separately). New 3D models are provided to be selected as FFX refill station model, with 3 texture sets (France, North America, Australia). The animated and interactive marshaller gives visual instructions to the pilot for the advanced refill process (as per the French Sécurité Civile procedures). The refill hose is handled by its ground crew as required by the refill sequence. This allows for a immersive airtanker experience that does not rely on the "green band texts" for a successful refill process. The package is compatible with FSX, FSX:SE and P3D v1 to v5. I hope you will enjoy reloading with Pelicandrome4FFX after your drops on wildfires! Modelled with Blender 2.83 with Blender2P3D/FSX toolkit Textured with GIMP2 HUGE thanks to Oliver from Lorby-SI for the several software modifications that have made this package possible! 👍 Here are a few pictures : The marshaller in action : Come closer! Slow dooooown... Set parking brake! Change the propeller pitch! You are ready to go! The hose crew : Bringing the hose to the airtanker Retardant is being loaded Walking to the tanker to disconnect the hose Hose being disconnected! Bringing the hose back out of the taxiway The texture sets : French Sécurité Civile North America Australia
  5. Hi there! Sorry for the silence in the last few months, but I am back with sole good news : the last few details in the instructions are being ironed out! The package should be released this week, and will be compatible with FSX up to P3Dv5! Thank you for tour patience!
  6. Nailed it! The gauges that run CropDusterX have different names depending on the sim version, as specified in the manual. So the panel entry has to be changed accordingly. Safe dusting and merry Xmas!
  7. And you are correct : I deleted the 2D lightbar panel since it was not supposed to be necessary anymore. You can restore it from the default panel file (just tell me if you need help).
  8. Hello glider1! Sorry to hear about the issue. Thanks for the rather comprehensive feedback. Can you toggle between the normal lightbar position and the closeup one? Does the closeup one work? Can you set the timer/GPA value from the VC with the buttons? Would you please share some pictures of the issue? Either here, by PM or by email? Thank you.
  9. Hello fellow simmers!A few addon airplanes are well suited for CropDusterX, Alabeo's Piper Pawnee is one of them.So I thought I could get the best of both of them : the original 2D control panels of CropDusterX are now integrated in the VC, a lightbar is added to the nose so that the pilot can flight the exact track required, and of course, the gauge compatibility is now ensured.The mod is available here : https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=220017The mod was tested in FSX, but I suspect the mod should work in P3D v2 and v3, maybe in v4.Thanks to Alabeo for allowing me to share the modified VC and external MDL files, and to Lorby-SI for their module.A few pictures :The last picture only highlights the new interactions from my mod. The blue, circular SatLoc buttons are functional and managed by CropDusterX.
  10. The sky is the limit! Open up your mind! 😁 If you are interested in aerial firefighting, Lorby-SI also offers FireFighterX that spawns wildfires on which you can drop retardant or water, with... any airplane of tour hangar!
  11. Hello fellow simmers! Crop dusting is really a both funny and demanding way to improve one's flying skills in a flight simulation : flying accurate patterns a few feet above the ground requires a lot of practice! Crop Duster X, publised a few years ago for FSX and above, is a payware module allowing any plane from your hangar to dust fields that can be created either automatically or manually, then saved. The concept is not mission-based : each flight gets a mark depending on how well the crops were dusted (quantity per acre, delivery time, etc). A few addon airplanes are well suited for the task, Alabeo's Piper Pawnee is one of them. So I thought I could get the best of both of them : the original 2D control panels of CropDusterX are now integrated in the VC, a lightbar is added to the nose so that the pilot can flight the exact track required, and of course, the gauge compatibility is now ensured. The mod is available here : https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=220017 The mod was tested in FSX, but I suspect the mod should work in P3D v2 and v3, maybe in v4. Thanks to Alabeo for allowing me to share the modified VC and external MDL files, and to Lorby-SI for their module. A few pictures : The last picture only highlights the new interactions from my mod. The blue, circular SatLoc buttons are functional and managed by CropDusterX.
  12. Just to let you know that The file is still available at the Flight1 file library. http://library.flight1.net/?p=11388
  13. Hello, The file is still available at the Flight1 file library. http://library.flight1.net/?p=11388 There you go!
