The event will be filmed, introductions to each aircraft will be made. Music will be added where appropiate.

I just discovered default Nellis does not have parking positions.
Its best to use default airport as so everyone don't have to download custom scenery. And also to keep frame-rates down when filming.

So any suggestions for other airbase? Must not be Europe or near KSFO as the scenery is too detailed there. Must have parking positions per default.

Any license requirements regarding music? I mean, can I also use well known songs or does it create problems?

Tripoli? Suggested because flat desert terrain => not too many triangles(?)

Dave Culp made an F-4 Bicentennial with smoke. We won't be dogfighting.

So is it KLSV again? I thought we weren't using that because it had no designated parking spots.

Lets just put in the msuic we want, if Youtube complains, normally it just means more commercials in the video.

KCOS is most likely to be the location unless some come up with a better location today, it has parking position. Today because I want location to be settled when I cross post this in main FG forums later today.

Flat terrain does not mean fewer triangles as far as I know to how the terrain system work. It depends on the resolution of the source GIS data, which was very detailed for Europe and less for Americas, Africa, Austalia and Asia.

The F-4 is fine, you can fly any mil aircraft, doesn't have to be from our list.

Honestly I don't like the idea of getting away from what are considered our "home bases" just because they don't have parking positions.
For me they don't work in any case so I have to taxi away from runway before spawning in MP anyway.
I've requested for parking positions on Jwocky's forum, let's see if someone can help us.

Anyway, I'll perform on Saturday with both F-15C and KC-137R, will post further details once I've planned everything.

Youtube doesn't care, you just can't monetize it. You'll find songs by well known artist on 50 million different videos on youtube.

JMav, KLSV isn't happening. Leto also said he didn't want the need for anything beyond terrasync, so adding parking positions doesn't help us get to KLSV.

If you don't have the correct F-4 here it is, Dave Culp has made many models.

If you want to see my smoke you will need to download this version of the Mirage 2000.

Is KCOS going to be sufficient with just 1 parking space? What about KDMA? Thats where I have been practicing anyway, I just assumed that would be the place due to parking.

Yes, 1 parking position will work just fine, then people don't spawn in infront of camera.

KDMA only has 1 runway I think, so I thought bigger KCOS would be nicer, also so you easier spot the airbase from the air when doing maneuvering.

After looking at both, I'd also vote for KCOS over KDMA. KCOS has dual runways which would be nice (one plane taking off/landing and getting ready, one plane being filmed and maneuvering), as well as buildings for better scenery.

KCOS didn't have building when I checked it, maybe it was my settings.
