Re: ILS Not Operative?

You have to be in range of an ILS (about 20mi) for it to show on the Nav menu. They will be in the Nav1 and Nav2 menu. Not all airports have an ILS
Some maps don't label their ILSes, so it's a bit of a lottery about which runway you get

Re: Current Projects

I'd set turret to be the whole arm rotation, up/down for one joint and left/right for the second joint, and put the spray direction on aileron/elevator because they're more twitchy. Thrust vector for boom zoom is a good choice

Re: How do i make replays

Link the replay .yfs in the .lst that loads the map. If there's an aircraft in the replay it throws an error offline but works fine online, though smoke, flares, and guns don't transfer In the scenery folder there will be a bunch of .lst files starting with "sce". Those are plain text files that YS ...

Re: Everything you ever wanted to know about .ter files but were afraid to ask

The shadow falls on any landable surface. That's ground, elevation grids* and carrier decks. That's hardcoded and we can't change it *if you raise an elevation grid so no point of its base intersects the ground, it stops having collision, and is therefore not landable and the shadow doesn't snap to ...

Re: YSFlight Wishlist

If you set the TrackIR output as look left/right and look up/down axes, you can bind those to view X and view Y axes in YS. There's no way to use the head position though

Re: How do i make replays

You can view the flight you just did with Simulation > Replay Flight Record. You can fly in that replay with Simulation > Select Aircraft. You can save to a file with File > Save Flight.
To keep replays of server flights, turn on Record Flight in Network > Network Option > Client

The 171st stock map replacer is a good quick fix for the really vibrant colours of the default maps. There are a couple versions of stock F-16 replacers to add more detail to the model, and there are lots of high quality aircraft and map addons For game settings, you have the three executable option...

Re: adding weapons to planes

Every aircraft has a .dat file that sets everything about how it flies. They are just text files with a fancy extension, so you can open them in Notepad. To add weapons, you're looking to add the HRDPOINT lines. Have a look at some of the stock aircraft, and the .dat file masterlist here Sadly we ca...

Re: Request - KetchupWarthog's A-10 pack

If you're just looking for the .dat, I can work something up for you. I have some progress on a S+ version of the A-10 .dat with turn conditions pulled from real sources and DCS. I can't remember how far I got on it, but I can spend some time finalizing it before the show
