no matter how, the work of eswube is formidable, a time-consuming work, and all of us could only thank him.

Hang in there.

@Madmike - Thank You!

With great relief I want to announce that FD-scale Land Vehicles have been uploaded.

That leaves "flying stuff" left to upload (unfortunately it still means majority of FD-scale content).
(But it doesn't mean I'll start uploading it today nor tomorrow, nor even necessarily this week :P )
So far (Ships, Org.Charts and Land Vehicles) around 2600 files were uploaded. Some 4700 remaining. :roll:

So far the work took me more time than expected, not least because I had to make some tweaks to list of Roles and Subroles (and make necessary changes in previously uploaded entries :roll: - my fault, at one point I started to really overcomplicate things, and had to cut it back to... well, slightly-less-overcomplicated level ;) ).

Unfortunately, the Search function for FD Archive is still not working (only search by filename works) and each country entry, besides "all vehicle drawings" (for that country) shows also completely random (and faulty) set of subroles (that lead nowhere useful).
When Colosseum was away in Turkey He suggested I join Discord and tell Watchwood directly, but I'm afraid I didn't join (because I forgot what I did with the "invitation" link and besides I wasn't really keen to join there :P ).

Thank You for kind words.

Uploaded FD-scale spacecraft, drones and missiles (large ones, those on separate type-specific templates, not those several "parts sheets" that were circulating around).
Gliders and aircraft/helicopters/etc. will follow from next week onwards.

@Novice - Thank You for extremely kind words. :)

Gliders are now uploaded, so it's just powered-aircraft left. Unfortunately "just" means here some 4400+ files - 3 months of work at the very least. :|

Just a side note. When I went to FD scale - never build - Aircraft, I could see "thousand" of different topic, like Yacht, etc. I believe that's not entirely correct....

The site categorization doesn't work as expected. This is pending additional development work which has not yet been planned. In the meantime, use the vehicle advanced search

Upload of the FD scale aircraft is proceeding. Right now left to upload are: France (underway), Russia/Soviet Union, Great Britain and USA (and, of course, new any entries, that are being added regularly).

But that's not the reason why I'm writing this post...
Someone (not me) uploaded Bordkanone75's new drawing of DAR-10. And did it clumsily (not least because old version was not removed, while it should be).
I can't find that post, but I believe I asked TO NOT UPLOAD ANYTHING ON YOUR OWN before I will finish the "basic" upload.
Needles to say, that "unauthorized" upload has been deleted.
:evil:
