Afraid the word is 'negative' , Speedbird..

At the moment, and probabely for a long time to come, THE word is 'FSX' ...

Struggling hard to get a first native FSX model off the ground, will be a Maam-Sim release. After that i hope to have a go at the first native FSX F-86 iteration. Might be E/F or D/K/L or maybe one of the FJ's..... Not really decided yet.

I can only say hang in there...  8)

cheers,
Jan

I'm wondering what there is left to do for FSX. I'm running the Section F8 SABRE on FSX and it's just great. No cut back on the frame rate even with smoke effect, 2D- and virtual cockpit are fully functional, texture looks great, interior and exterior and so on. So if this is still a port over from FS 2004 I can't see anything left to improve.
For me it's still best aircraft in FSX.

Hi Hans-Jörg ( name sounds familiar..  8)  ),

Thanks for compliments ! There's indeed a LOT involved to convert an FS9 model to native FSX. To begin with, all textures and texture mappings will have to be redone as well as ALL anims. But, believe me, the difference will not go unnoticed, to say the least.... F.i. the texture quality will be doubled, or even tripled, compared to what you see now. Also typical FSX goodies like bumpmapping, specific specular highlighting and better reflectivity will come into play as well as much better special FX, lighting, sounds and animations.

If you *like* our FS9 Sabre model now, you will *LOVE* it once the native FSX version has been materialised. That's a promise !

To quote BTO :  "  B..B..B..Baby, You Ain't Seen N..N..N..Nothing Yet !  ;D

Cheers,
Jan
