Bristol Fighter for CFS3 Finally released.

I have finally released the CFS3 version of the Bristol Fighter F.2B 'Biff' for CFS3. It is available from Sim-Outhouse

I have now started the conversion to FS2004. I cannot provide a timeline as yet as virtual cockpits for FS2004 differ in their implementation. I also have to get my head around xml parts coding for the virtual cockpit gauges. It may or may not be easy. We'll soon find out.

A few screen shots of the CFS3 version.

Windows Vista delay and FSX

For those wondering whether the announced re-scheduling of the release of Windows Vista to January 2007, Michael Z has posted this related item on his blog. He cannot say much but what he does say is encouraging. It is also worth reading the Flight Simulator X FAQ.

Ultra Busy

I apologise for the lack of posts over the last month or so. I have been ultra busy with my Bristol Fighter F2B project. The CFS3 version of the aircraft is almost complete - just some tweaking of textures and damage modeling. I am in the process of converting this to FS2004 which involves a little more work as the two MS simulations differ in the way they implement virtual cockpits.

Hopefully normal blog posts will resume from now on.
