A suggestion to help newcomers to the sim

Postby jrbirdman » Sat Sep 10, 2011 5:11 am

How about making a textures only section? After all some people download a texture set thinking it was the whole aircraft. I for one have done this on a few occasions. It can be rather confusing when you have them blended in with the aircraft. Just a thought really. Kind regards, Jeremy

yes, as a matter of fact, I have thought of that many times, but each time, I found a problem.

I really have been thinking about it :-X Club508 said it all.
But sometimes it gets kinda annoying when you're looking through military planes section and More than half of them are textures :(
Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.

I've just thought, Maybe if you take all the files From the airplane Sections with the required file thats not in the Panel, Gauges, misc E.t.c And move them in :P

This has been suggested many times before chaps, unfortunately the sheer number of files involved would reduce most to a quivering jelly!
The search works just fine as long as you put what you want in ;)

There are two types of aeroplane, Spitfires and everything else that wishes it was a Spitfire!

I have found especially in windows 7 that if you drag and drop files you do not have options as in move, copy or replace. On the other hand I did discover that a right click drag and drop DOES allow options....just a little tip. Now to figure out how to edit the config files without white-out. I am relatively new here and have learned a lot by just plain messing around but somehow the english directions do not process properly to what my fingers do. :oops:
