WIP: T-45C repaints




When I have time I like making aircraft repaints, especially from a 'what if' series. This time my fantasy was the Goshawk sporting all black livery and Aussie BAE Hawk line paint. Though not perfect but fun... 😉

vLSO 1.0.2

Guys,

This is another version with some bugfixes, updates and improvements.

One of the funny bugs worth mentioning was the Aerosoft F-14B Extended v3, named as follows:

[General]
atc_type=Grumman
atc_model=.NoMirrorF14
performance=
category=airplane

So, in order to recognize this aircraft you have to open its Aircraft.cfg and change the atc_model to 'F14'. 😉

My big thanks go to Michel (as always), Scott Gray and Scita Borea, without whose help this version would not have been realized.

This version upgrades the logbook format, so I suggest to install this version into a new folder and copy your logbook into it, so the program will automatically update the logbook. Be warned that this 1.0.2 logbook can not be read by previous 1.0.1.* versions!
