  1. So, After completing my current contract with the Jordanian Special Forces, I'm finally getting my act together and heading stateside. Going to test the waters so to speak in Dallas, Texas. Got an old military buddy there that I haven't seen for years. Due to arrive at DFW on 9/14/2018, so if anybody wants to catch up for a beer, drop me a line. Will be staying for 3 months, see if I can source some work. Can't wait! AJ.
  2. Hi mue, Sorry for the late reply, but I really appreciate your help with this topic. Many thanks indeed. Andrew.
  3. Hi community, One of my colleagues who does modelling for our real sim has dropped a couple of questions that I cannot answer, but perhaps some of you guys can (I only look after the hardware). Our simulator is based around a new simulator, which in turn is based around the Outerra engine. My colleague has done modelling before, but has mostly done modelling with an application called Oxygen, which our company will not allow us to use. So, as we are inserting aircraft, my colleague is curious to know which modelling programs this community uses, and also what the average poly counts are like. As well as this, is anybody here willing to share what scripting languages are being used to configure the models please? Tell me to bugger off if this is asking too much, but I have come here and asked this because this community is always so helpful. Thanks from Jordan! Andrew.
  4. Hi community, As of next Friday, I will probably not be able to be a part of this forum for about the next year, perhaps more. Recently, I scored a good job in the middle east. I'm not allowed to say where, but there is some degree of risk involved with it. As a result, I have to get my skates on and get moving, in a very very short time-frame. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank this awesome community. Even though so many of us have not met, there really is a feeling of "brotherhood" here. I am especially indebted to all of the modders out there that do such awesome work; you have kept this sim alive for so long with your extreme levels of talent. I would like to thank Wrench; for always having patience with me time and time again, when I ask questions that I should really know the answer to. And I would especially like to thank Dave. Man, I WILL get to the States one day, maybe 2019, 2020, or perhaps 2021. I also recently found a long lost buddy who lives in Texas and has touched base with me, so hopefully. I know that with this community, by the time I fly SF2 again, it will be a completely different sim. All the best guys, Andrew.
  5. F-15A Air Superiority Blue

    Thanks once again so much. Truly a work of art.
  6. Hi community, I have dropped the Harrier + into my mod folder for SF2NA, but I'm finding that my flight is starting on ships that have insufficient deck lengths to take off. I've installed the improved carriers pack from this site (thanks to all!) so does anybody know of a work around for this issue? Many thanks, Andrew.
  7. Thirdwire F-15A Eagle Hi-Rez

    Amazingly detailed, and takes the aircraft up to a new level in this sim. Always know how much your work is appreciated, thanks so much. Andrew.
  8. ...Thanks to this awesome community! Have been flying the usual SF2E missions, but using helicopters instead! Sure, I know that some of the missions cannot be flown due to aircraft range, but man, memories of the old days of Janes Longbow 2, love it! Has anybody ever considered setting up a map or a campaign for these kinds of missions? Something awesome about getting up close and personal to a T-72 and using a TOW missile! Thanks so much everybody!
  9. This community never ceases to amaze me! Thanks for all of your efforts. Andrew.
  10. Hi Guys, Thanks once again for the quick replies, still loving this sim, even though it's been out for so many years! Crusader; I carried out the changes as mentioned in this thread, I must have done something wrong, because the existing HUD is still as it was (almost like a default gunsight). I will keep trying. MiGBuster; I've looked through both the Huddata.ini and Messagesystem.ini, but I cannot seem to see any references to the screen for the radio calls. I have attached a screenshot regarding the washing out of the colours. As you will see, my modifications have made SOME of the changes that I wanted, but not for the radio message selection as of yet. Once again, thanks to this awesome community.
  11. Hi community, Apologies firstly, I've done some searching of the forums, but to no avail. So, I have a few questions in regards to my enjoyment of SFP2E. So, here goes: 1. Has anybody ever added CCIP to the F-4? I would like to do this. 2. Compared to a lot of the screenshots I see here, my scenery looks a little 'washed out'. Is this something I can change in the sim, or is this done post screenshot? 3. (This one is driving me nuts!) Which .ini file do I edit to reduce the size of the text for wingman commands please? Many thanks, and Happy New Year to this great community. Andrew.
  12. That is indeed a true work of art! Thank you for your commitment to this.
  13. Hi community, I recently did the big rebuild to Windows 10 (Gasp!) and as a result, I will be reinstalling some of my Thirdwire sims in the near future, but I have a quick question if the esteemed members here can help me please.... I was going to reinstall SF2NA (as it's the newest sim in this range) however, in the past, I have found that the campaign missions become somewhat repetitive, and indeed, some of the missions in my view are ridiculously impossible to complete. For example, strike missions where one must attack an entire carrier battle group. Have any mods been made to resolve this? I would love to see a little more variation if at all possible. As usual, any and all replies much appreciated. Thanks, AJ.
  14. I would just like to say a big thank you to all of you guys out there in the modding community that are doing such a good job of keeping this sim alive. I've not had a lot of time to fly, but recently I downloaded and installed the Korean War mod, and boy, is this payware quality or what! Honestly, I believe that you guys have done a better job on Korea than even TK could, if he had ventured that far. I'm hoping that as I'm getting older, and things are starting to slow down for me a little, I might be able to get around to making some mods for this simulator. The past 5-6 years I've been doing a lot of stuff with FSX, and now also with FSW by Dovetail. Because the formats of the two sims are so similar, I'm not sure what I would need to learn to start modding for Strike Fighters. Big life change coming up again soon. Once again, thanks to all for transforming this sim for us all. Your work is greatly appreciated. Andrew.
