  1. Chaps. This is on offer at £3.99 at the mo. It's a re-compile of the old, discontinued, FSX optimised for new hardware etc. It supports all your old addons and re-paints (not quite, more on that in a mo). There's also new network support using the Steam platform. Acceleration and all patches are included in the install. I did a clean install of the Steam client and placed it on my D drive. This then installs FSX (and any other Steam games) to that drive and Steam directory. After install I tested and found all was well and ran smoothly. I then bit the bullet and tried an addon aircraft or two. This went ok but you had to make sure the installer placed the files in the new FSX folder. Carenado was fine and found the new path, but RealAir made up its own mind and plonked the files in the wrong place. This wasn't to much of a hassle, but needed rectifying. When done both aircraft worked fine. Adding a re-paint caused a problem though. They wouldn't show up in the Sim at all. Under investigation I've found you need to tweak the aircraft.cfg file entry slightly. The new FSX must do this automatically when using an installer, but you need to do it manually if adding your own re-paints. Here's an example: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [fltsim.1] title=C185F ShavronAir sim=Carenado_C185 model= panel= sound= texture=ShavronAir kb_checklists=C185_check kb_reference=C185_ref atc_id=SHV ui_manufacturer="Carenado" ui_type=C185F ui_variation="ShavronAir" ui_createdby="Carenado" ui_typerole=Highwing single Engine Prop description="The C185, also known as the Skywagon, is a six-seat, single engined, general aviation light aircraft. The variation with Tundra tires is used for bush strip runways. It is widely used in Canada and in the North of the United States". Repaint by Rick Brown, ShavronAir. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Notice that there is now a set of quotation marks placed around a few entries. The crucial one appears to be the: ui_createdby="Carenado" When this was done the re-painted aircraft appear in the sim. I'll report anymore findings as I come across them. Rick.
