A revised model, including a new panel and an improved virtual cockpit. The panel is more authentic, with improved gauges, improved layout, background, etc. The virtual cockpit is much easier to use. Requires one or more of the Short Empire models: S23_V10.ZIP, S30_V10.ZIP or S30LR_10.ZIP. By Jens B. Kristensen.

  • This is a major upgrade of the panel and the virtual cockpit.
  • The panel is more authentic, with improved gauges, improved layout, improved background etc.
  • The virtual cockpit is much easier to use (no zooming required).
  • To fully use the new panel, an upgraded mdl-file, upgraded textures and a new 'users manual' are included here as well.

Read the install instructions below carefully!

One (or more) of my Short Empire packages must be installed on your system before you can install this upgrade. The files are:

  • Unzip the contents of this zip-file to a new, empty folder.
  • Using Windows Explorer, copy the contents of the manual, model and panel folders to the corresponding locations in the folder where your Short Empire(s) is/are installed. Most likely 'JBK Short S23' (or something like it for the S30's and 33's). Say 'yes' to overwrite existing files.
  • Copy the two revised texture files from the texture folder to each of the folders of your Short Empires.

That should do it! Good luck.

This plane was made with FSDS 2.24, the textures with Paint Shop Pro and DxtBmp.
