Is Garry Smith's 2004 site forever DOWN?

Postby Jean Loup » Mon Nov 19, 2018 12:34 pm

HELLO & BUENOS DíAS TO ALL, I have a question: now that the site "http://www.gjsmith.net (aircraft and all textures)" is DOWN, where do we find (us poor 2004 retrograde souls) this textures? I only have the basic plane & texture. (Transload doesn't open either)

Garry's site, cataloguing an amazing range of paints is no more.
The Fort Tri-Motor site, thanks to Ed Moore, is still up & running. Maybe not for much longer, so please grab what you can, before this site disappears into history.
Garry also provided a repository of Mike Stone's planes. Another mostly forgotten developer, who gave us a huge range of aircraft.
There is a Mike Stone collection in our library, that I posted a few months ago, and Ronald Falzon is also posting texture collections on a regular basis.

These developers were the backbone of our hobby, always giving us outstanding freeware add-ons, often without recognition nor thanks.

The Ford Tri-Motor Project is a great collection of aircraft, textures & scenery, & I have a separate FS2004 install just for it.
Garry always said that simming is all about Fun, Facts & Fiction. Let's remember the 3 F's of simming.

Our 15 year old FS2004 is quite unique in having these amazing add-ons.... there are even floating sloping & circular runways that other sims lack.

Regards,
Robin

The Harvard/Texan paints were on Garry's http://www.gjsmith.net site, not at the Tri-Motor site.

Maybe somebody has some paints fron the old site that they can share, & all Garry's paints for Warwick Carter's T6 Texan were for FS2004.

Waybackmachine is always worth a look for dead sites (& live ones!)

https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.gjsmith.net

Seems not to have archived much of Garry's site though ... but worth looking just in case

There is quite a lot at waybackmachine if you look around. The snapshots are very random - most having very little or next to nothing archived but some have quite a lot of stuff. You just have to check different dates.
