McFly,

Several years ago Jupiter gave me a copy of the Aero Tool Kit with the understanding that I not pass it on to anyone else at the request of the USAF programmer that provided it to us. One of the USAF community would like a copy of it. Do you think it's time for us to pass it on to the rest of the community. Let me know.

No one has been able to figure out exactly how the fm editor works. It has been tried by several dedicated individuals with mixed results. Only with pain staking experimentation was the flight models on some improved. It has no instructions and the understanding as to what the numbers mean to any know base is a mystery. Also, changing the entries also affects other things like the autopilot and way point steering, auto refueling, and auto landing

When it's existence was first revealed there was very heated arguments about changing fm's that would find their way into Hyperlobby with F-16's having Starwars "Viper" abilities. This is why the Aero Tool Kit will not be released.

This is something that was not intended to be in general release. It was offered to see if it was possible to improve the FM's. To some extent that goal was succesful. But the degree of complexty in trying to figure out what the numbers mean has stymied many a math scholar.
. . . ask Jupiter to name one, if he's still looking in. ;\)

Anyway, Cowboy, drop me a note.

Fly

McFly is right, I had more failures tan successes with the Aero Tool Kit. I modified the F-4 FM once, and I couldn't air refuel with the tanker anymore.
