Panel bitmaps, cameras and weapon effects for the PBY Catalina from Alphasim, now Virtavia freeware. Requires direct download from Virtavia.com. The panel bitmap is improved by headover throttles and a typical Catalina yoke. There are five internal and three external aircraft view cameras plus one cockpit view. The smoke system is configured with weapon effects. Configuration by Erwin Welker.

Download and install one or both Catalina versions from Virtavia.com. There is a button above for the freeware site.

Copy and overwrite my panel.cfg and the Yoke.bmp into the panels. Attention: There ar 2 versions!

Due to the copyrights I did not include the original panel-bitmap from Alphasim. Please copy my Throttle-bitmap into the upper right corner of the panel-butmaps.

Copy all the lines from the file "cameras&smokesystem.cfg" somewhere into the aircraft.cfg; remove the original Smokesystem entries.

Copy the Effects into the main directory of FSX; overwrite YES.

That's all!
