Facebook and Tomcat


Past and present of the Tomcatters  


F-14D 164601 in Grim Reaper retro livery flying with F-35C Lightning II CF-6 

I've received several friend requests on facebook from many fellow simmers - I am sorry but I use facebook to connect only with my "real-world" friends, so I do not accept friend requests from people I don't know in person.

Still, facebook is a great tool - so I have created an indiafoxtecho page at facebook. Just search for it in the search bar... at the moment there are just a couple of placeholder images... but it may become a good tool to stay connected.

As for the Tomcat - it is very close to relase. I took some extra time to write down a manual, much like the "Virtual NATOPS" I created for the T-45C Goshawk. It is almost complete... then there are few minor things to be fixed and it will be released. It is a question of (hopefully very few) days!

Thank you so much for creating that page Dino, however can you make it possible for us to post things on the wall of that page so it is easier for us to communicate with you??

Dino ..could you check the HUD? The digits are hard to read on the sides and corners.....DME/TCN numbers are blocked by the HUD assembly....

Dino,

How do make FSX having two planes flying in formation?

Dino Cattaneo said...

@Honeycool

There are several ways, apart from multiplayer... one is with programs like FSRecorder... but if you just want to fly in racetrack patterns, FS Formation Toys is an easy tool to setup simple formations.

@Javier

Not an easy fix - the HUD graphics are 99% accurate. Thing is in the real deal they are "superimposed" to the HUD frame...so the HUD is correct the geometry is correct but the visual effect is not....
