here're a couple of updates for the B-52 and the YF-23.  I've converted both
models to single-sided polygons.  Erik H. pointed out to me that I'd been
using double-sided polys and this resulted in a rendering hit and eventually
I found a button in AC3D that seemed to do the trick.  Doing this has
actually cleared up some of the z-buffer problems, especially with regard to
the tailfins.  Before, I could see some z-buffer problems occurring at the
trailing edges of the tailfins where the two surfaces, althought not touching
except at the edges, are close to each other.  Also, because the 'far' sides
aren't being rendered there are less 'inside-out' problems too.

The down side is that I'm going to have to start adding flight-deck partitions
and floors (I've experimented a little with this on the SR45 model where I
had to do the passeger cabins as well) because when you look through the
windshield or side windows you can see there's no fuselage on the the other
side.

It's interesting to note that the normal combat tow for the F model was
291,570lbs - equivilent to a fuel load of about 0.46 (this would actually

It still doesn't reach the correct altitudes, and certainly not with a full

and gear in replay.  I address the left and right flaps independently so they
have left&right-flap-pos-norms and don't get controlled by the replay
mechanism which must refer to the single flap-pos-norm.  There's a similar
thing with the gear - I have to identify them individually so I can animate
them properly so on the b52 there're six gear elements but only the first
three are actioned in replay.

Personally, I think that the only way around this will be to provide
control-overrides for all these items, much like there're the AP control
overrides for throttle etc.

The base a10 yasim config wasn't working because of the control structure
changes so I've fixed that.  The other yasim configs are also included
because I forgot to omit them from the archive but they're not updated or
changed.

All the a10 stuff needs badly re-doing though and it's a bit of a mess - the
yasim configs are all similar but I don't know which ones had Andy Ross's
mods.  I've also got to either forget the weapon load version or get it
working with weight entries so that the rest of the configs can be
indentical.
