VARIANTS

-  two variants tourist version with spoiler wing, crew and sliding roof






CONTROLS

All gauges and switches have descriptions, all is simple and will not cause you a problem.






The boat has DVD player for slideshow and CD player for music. If you have a program to convert BMP format to DDS format, you can put your own images for slideshow.
 You can listen your own music if you prepare your music.

HOW TO DO IT?

It is very simple. Go to the boat TEXTURE folder and find files that are called: sl01_t.dds - sl10_t.dds. Format is 512x512 pix.-images fliped (two pictures). Make your own
pictures in format 512x256 pix (two pictures) then flip image and convert it to DXT5 dds format and replace old to new. The program ie.: DirectX texture tool (freeware).
The music has format Microsoft wav 20050 Hz 16 Bit stereo PCM. If you will have problems, - make mono audio (it depends on your computer). So record your music
and replace with original called: dss_music_pb.wav in boat SOUND folder.

TIPS

-
Because these boats have very big power you must learn to drive them. You must be careful when taking tight turns (full power ) - you control only with "Z" axis without
  lean "X" axis. If you need stop quickly - decrease power to zero and make tight turn with no lean or with opposite lean.

-
Please, don't manipulate the boat configuration file because changing even a single digit lead disaster which will not be corrected ( *cfg. and *air files )

-
When you are racing on - let all the boats have the same parameters - counts wits and skills.

- If you mix panel switches with keyboard keys the control light will lost correct relation of events, I mean, if you change a variant of boat without engine stop your new
  variant will sail without correct control light of engine (start-stop) - for lights simply push L key twice. The same concern other moving parts controlled by the switches.
  THE PRINCIPLE IS: USE SWITCHES ONLY, ALL IS CONTROLED BY THE SWITCHES ONLY!

- How to RELOAD the ship
  Go to the: SETTINGS / CONTROLS then you will see the SETTINGS - CONTROL window. Choose: BUTTON / KEYS bookmark.
  Next choose ALL EVENTS at events category and mark AIRCRAFT (reload) - how below, then make new assignment (if it is empty)
