I just found a whole new way to experience FS2002. OR, should I say an old way. I convereted all of my AI aircraft into aircraft from the 30s, 40s and 50s. For example, when I fly into an airport, I see DC4s, Connies, DC3s, Stearmans, J3CUBs, Etc. Now, my question is, when I add the aircraft to my aircraft list, it looks something like this:
AC#2,225,"Lockheed Eastern L1049G"
AC#3,225,"USAF Fairchild C-119 "Flying Boxcar"
AC#4,180,"Junkers Ju-52 German Paratroops Summer"
AC#5,180,"Junkers Ju-52 German Paratroops Winter"
AC#6,190,"Beechcraft "G" 18"
AC#7,190,"Beechcraft "G" 18 USAF"
AC#9,180,"Douglas DC-3 DCA N1776"
AC#10,180,"Douglas R4D-6 NATS"
Etc, etc, ....
Now, is the number after the AC# the airspeed in which the aircraft will cruise at?? OR, do I need to change that in the flight plans? I was following a DC3 and he was cruising at 195-200 MPH. I changed some of the "what I think the speed is" but, I didn't see any difference. (I don't think)
ALSO, with some of my AC, I have downloaded these awhile ago, and some are converted FS98 jobs, such as the "USAF Fairchild C-119 "Flying Boxcar", so, when I see them on the ground, the wheels are already retracted, which makes it look very funny to see them taxiing with out the wheels down. Although, it looks very cool to see them flying. Any suggestions on that on how to get the gear down while taxiing? Yes, I did save the original aircraft file, so I can always go back to the "jet age". I was also thinking of making another aircraft file with nothing but Military AC after I learn more about this.
