FlightNight July 31 - Barnstorming Stockholm Sweden!

28 Jul 2021 11:20 - 29 Jul 2021 19:41 #50790 by Vodoun da Vinci


We'll meet at the appointed hour of 8 pm London time at ESSA - Stockholm Arlanda Airport. We'll be flying WWI Aircraft/Biplanes/Triplanes or if one prefers, the speeds will be in the range of 110 KIAS so you can bring a chopper and pick up the pieces. The idea is to tour various airports around Stockholm and show off our aerobatics and ACM moves - low and fast, rolls, loops, chase, etc as we pass the airports and observe the cool scenery.

So far the first half will be: Start at ESSA and then do tricks at ESSN, ESSB, and take our break at ESKB. After refresh and refuel we will fly to ESSU, and ESSX for more tricks and stunts before ending the evening at ESOW - Stockholm Västerås Airport.

What a nice Idea! But:
-- WWI and helicopters? :)
-- What is the best way to download your fighters? :huh:

Sorry for the confusion - I'm still not able to add stuff to the Hangar but I fixed the link in the original post to get the aircraft. Cheers!

Yes, ESSX actually. I have amended OP with the correct ICAO.

Hi,

It's been a while, but tonight's flight had me really tempted (WWI birds + Sweden, yum!). Unfortunately my PC has decided that it doesn't want to run FG anymore: I get a hard reboot after 5-10min of flying :(

However, before I realized that I fixed several issues with the planes package:
  • There's an extra "f" in the path for startup.wav in all planes,
  • In the Dr1:
    • The textures "fokker1_T.png" and "fokker2_T.png" have randomly a capital "F" or a lower case "f" in the file name and in the XML → several liveries don't work.
    • There's an "Albatros" among the splash screens.
  • In the SPAD:
    • The pilot texture is named "pilot2.png" in the model, but the file is named "PILOT2.png".
    • There's an extra "l" in "daVinci_SPAD/Splashscreen/daVinci_SPADl-2.jpg".

For the linux users I'm attaching a patch, which you can apply with the following command:
patch -p1 < daVinci_WWI_Flighters.patch.txt

Have a good flight.

Sorry, deleted my post as the WWI fighter link above works perfectly fine.

Still, thanks a lot to Oly and F-JMB for their contributions :)
