Re: Island Defense

Thanks for the feedback!
I do not have that problem here. Could it be I am running an old version? How can I tag it as a STP? I know there are various tags in scenery editor but I don't know what they mean! Thanks for any pointers you can provide.

Re: YSCAS Racing Series - Planning Topic

My 2 cents: I love flying through canyons, under bridges, and through caves. It's even better when there is plenty of stock AAA present forcing you to keep your head down. Also, faster is better imho, but not too fast, as it's hard to catch up with the rest if you overshoot a corner (like in a Formu...

[SCENERY] The Hump - China in WWII

Hi all, You might not know it, but I live and work in China. One of my hobbies is reading up on the CBI theater in World War II. As such, I love stories from the Flying Tigers, the Hump, and the Burma Road. A map to reflect this is this Hump map. It is a scaled down map of China. The real one would ...

[SCENERY] Island Defense

Hi all, here is a little fun battlemap for you. I do think you will need my other maps because some of the ground objects are from the vietnam/china/middle east/battle maps. But when you have those, the challenge is to kill everyone without being killed. If you stay put on the beach or on your kears...

[AIRCRAFT] Kamov Ka-50 Hokum and MH-6 Littlebird

Hi all, As promised, here is the Ka-50 Hokum. It is a repaint from the CEP2 Ka-52 rear end, married with a GAC Ka-50 frontside. I camo-ed it up, and put in a decent Mig-29 cockpit as per the real deal. Do feel free to spruce it up and repaint. The grey version is a fictional Hokum fitted with a GAU-...

[AIRCRAFT] A-26 Invader and Counter Invader

Hi all, I found an almost finished A-26 in my folder, so I finished the project in two versions. Hope you like them. At first I wanted to make a Vietnam camo A-26K, but I'm a bit tired after making the KA-50 camo, so I hope you enjoy the black French Gascogne version instead. The A-26B is a Korea ve...

Re: Stock aircraft visual overhauls

Yes, but keep the DAT file. It all depends how detailed you want to be. The DAT file (you can open it with notepad) specifies the name, flight characteristics, and weapons for the aircraft. Also in the DAT for example, the weapon pylons are specific for that DNM model (the 3D mesh). So, if you have ...

Re: Stock aircraft visual overhauls

GAC and Birdfarm have most of the stock planes right? You can rename the file names and overwrite them. Make sure to do this with the DNM, collision, and cockpit files though, just not the DAT. For me personally, I don't load the stock planes at all when playing YSF. Just change the file name of air...

Just copy it in any airxxxxx.lst file that you like.
Can also make a new one, or just in the stock aircraft.lst

Re: HUD modification

If you add a 'turret' you get a crosshairs too.

AND, check out the crosshairs on my P-40B. If you click F1 you go to the ex-camera position lined up with the crosshairs. Click 'reserve thrust' button when firing to see the muzzle flash for extra kick.

Hi all, I was fooling around with making a nice battle map again, and jumped in the Marines Supercobra chopper to try it out, but it felt like this map needed a nice new helicopter. So i picked up the old gepolyx again to make the thing in the picture. The map is basically my pirates map with added ...

Re: Radar Screen Instrument

Cool mod with the radar function. It isn't mine, although it does seem to be based on a repaint I did from Oranleed's F5 to make the Sundowner pack complete. This radar idea is nifty, and seems to be transferable to other planes. Just got to take the items from the DNM and re-place them in the new c...

Re: VR helmet use in YS

Just thinking about keyboard controls though. With the helmet you can't find the keys on the key board, and there are no 'touchable' items in our cockpits yet. (that is: the stick and throttle react to the movement of the plane, not the other way around.) So, with a VR helmet, we would have to have ...

VR helmet use in YS

Hi all,

Just a question about VR.
Does anyone have an Oculus or something similar laying around, and would it work in the 3D world of YS?

If we could get this to work it would be really really fun IMHO.
(... and we'll have to work on cockpit details a bit more in our visual models :? )

On a sidenote, cockpit files can be DNM's but they are not animated.
