    Photoscenery in Flight Sim World???

    Just a test... FSET photoscenery plus Ted Andrews' Weston Helicopter Museum and Nemeth Design's Huey:



    So, FSW ain't so difficult, what?!?

    Yes, but with 'strings' - seems that Dovetail have modified the base code such that installing non-FSW aircraft (native MS FSX, freeware or oayware) is impacted. Some aircraft port across without gauges (dll problems), some aircraft have invisible components (texture compatibility?), so forth.

    Addon Scenery installation is more complicated, but works. Missions port across with editing. Etc, etc.

    A challenge up to a point, then frustration takes over.

    The GUI is different and restrictive compared to FSX.

    Cockpit graphics are excellent, Flight dynamics are mostly native FSX - so no deal on helicopters yet.

    I'm trying to keep optimistic - but losing momentum. We'll see...
