Re: Opening problems

You'll get other errors like trouble frequency and specular when you go to fly. To fix all of them, open the configs in 2014 and hit OK. This overwrites the config file entirely, so you don't need to manually edit.

Re: Where is 20181124 Linux 32bit ?

Maneuverability is now a function of throttle, because helicopters use the post stall system, and Soji changed post stall maneuverability to be a function of throttle to better simulate thrust-vectoring aircraft like the F-22, but in the process broke helicopters. It can be fixed with a couple lines...

Re: Where is 20181124 Linux 32bit ?

I can't speak for Linux or Mac, but the 2018 Windows version runs a lot more slowly than the 2015 version, all for only a couple graphical changes. 2015 is best for online stuff. Opinions differ for offline, but I'm a fan of 2013 because the helicopters aren't broken like they are in 2015+.

Re: Where is 20181124 Linux 32bit ?

There aren't a whole lot of Linux users here, but honestly the 2018 version isn't really worth it. Very few people actually run it regularly, and all the servers are 2015 or earlier, which is incompatible with the 2018 version.

Re: .dat files

All weapon skins aside from gun and flare can be changed universally by overwriting the correct file in the misc folder, which changes the default skin. To change a weapon skin for a specific aircraft, you can add the WPNSHAPE line to its .dat. At this point there is no way to change the flare shape...

Re: .dat files

Add this to your .dat file:
WPNSHAPE FLR FLYING filepath/to/file/here/flare.srf

Find the filepath of the flare SRF you want, and change the filepath accordingly.

Re: repaint pearl script.

Some of your normals are going the wrong way. Each face of a model is only visible from one side, and the other side is transparent.

Calling all modders! Throw away your sketchpads, drain your creative juices, and replace them with alcohol: it's time to design the ugliest airplane you can. Gone are the days of structured competitions with defined roles and performance requirements. In this comp, build whatever type of aircraft yo...

Re: YSFLIGHT crashes when loading my addon

Set the gear position lower. The aircraft is blowing up because the origin is crossing below the ground, or enough of the collision file is. Probably a good idea to double check the .coll anyway by changing aircraft quality to minimum with the Control menu in-flight.

Re: YSFLIGHT crashes when loading my addon

You can set gear and cockpit positions by trial and error (set a number, check where it sits relative to the model, modify number, check again), or find the location in Blender and use those coordinates. I tend to use trial and error, and Decaff will know more about the Blender process.

I replaced a stock aircraft with the X1 .dat file and it crashes YS. I've never experienced this before, but something in the .dat is the problem. EDIT: Aha! It's the WEAPONCH line that doesn't have a value after it, so it's reading it as a null (because the next value is RADARCRS which is a variabl...

Re: YSFLIGHT crashes when loading my addon

The filepath is just in the name field, so it isn't causing problems. The crashes look to me like the line count specified for one of the SRFs within the DNM is wrong: PCK Mesh.036 170646 SURF They look about a factor or two of ten too high on cursory inspection, compared to other .dnms. Also you mi...
