That Tomcat is very detailed. Pheonix missles and the engines in the inlets. Nice. Here are some shots from tonight.

O.K. I'm NOT being a pain, but here are Airways charts showing those intersections (waypoints). They are just intersections in our National Airspace System. When you tell FSX you are starting in Key West, you open and close Flight Planner it loads those intersections in that area initially for use. But you can also open the GPS, hit nearest, switch to intersections screen and you have done the same thing. It does work, so you can do it either way. But if you forget to open flight planner (yes like I always do). You can load the facility waypoints by the GPS in the plane.

Roger,

I see what you mean,but I never could find those maps. Now that I don't have GPS(in any of my planes), I may have to reload FSX-

I knew something wasn't right when my first waypoint was 1250 miles away, anyhow I'll figure it out and try again.

JT,

Those maps are from my AOPA Site. (for real pilots)HA. But they are the same ones that the GPS will pull up in FSX on the (Nrst) button on the GPS. The map just helps to see which one is conveinent to set the carrier on. (Like in Key West TADPO is about 40 miles away- but BUSBY is right off the West end of Key West about 2 miles).

I tried to load those detailed Carriers and now my FSX will not even show the Add On Scenery on the menu bar. So now I have NO carriers. I don't know what else to do, I have tried reloading Addon Scenery directory and I even redownloaded AI Carriers and reloaded it like new and still nothing works.

Well I don't know actally how but I got all my Carriers back... and then some. I found a downloaded the USS Reagan. and you run it just like a plane, So I AM THE CARRIER. It is pretty cool. I will like to try this. Here are some shots, you can put it on autopilot and then stand outside and watch the flight operations.

Nothing against the maps but when you just use the NRST on the GPS it seems to get the ships to close in. That is why I go thru the pages and find a wpt 30-40 miles out, which gives you a chance to go find them so to say.
Oh well to each his own.

Let me know if you're going to be home tomorrow and see if we can get your ships back.
I reloaded everything and all is well,still have a bunch of planes yet.

RC.......
Already shut down for tonight. We usually are on around 7:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time. You are welcome anytime. You need at least SP2 to fly in the session, Accelerator if you want to have the carriers and be able to fly Accelerator aircraft give a try and see how it goes.

Roger,
Forgot I had these. Both F-15's suck, 1 has no gauges the other has gauges but don't work.

The P-38 is pretty good even has VC cockpit with working gauges. I'm only going to keep the good fliers and junk the rest

Don't you and Rick have a working F-15? I must have deleted the wrong one.

Yes, We both have good F-15's

I need to have you and Rick download the USS Reagan CVN76 so that it will show up in multiplayer.Just Google it it is only 9mb so it loads quick. Otherwise Your system will substitute a plane instead......that would be hard to land on.

Where from? (F-15) I've got the Reagan somewhere. You're not going to make a hard right turn when we are landing????? LOL

Found another that might interest y'all, need to find a different texture.
