Re: Is it possible to modify the looks of an aircraft.??

Is there a way that I can sort how the bombs get added then? That way I can add 6 bombs and then have 2 tanks, on 8 separate hard points? When you weapons, they get loaded by a certain order. Is it the way they're listed in the .dat file that determines this order? If I can figure the order out, I c...

Re: Is it possible to modify the looks of an aircraft.??

Would it be possible to have a hard point that had the capability for say a B500 and FUEL, but have different positions for both such that you wouldn't get severe overlap with the FUEL due to it's larger diameter? What I'd like to do is assign the FUEL to a different height, but not make it another ...

Re: Contrails on command

Thanks a million Dragon, I assigned the smoke to \ and then after that I hold it then press the shift key to make the smoke stay without any constant button pressing by me. http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/2913/screenshot20111119at100.png EDIT: Gotta give credit where credit is due.

Re: Contrails on command

To add the smoke generation points is that just adding an extra line under SMOKEGEN 0.0m -0.64m 0.64m #SMOKE GENERATOR POSITION? What I'd like to do is assign a key to the smoke generator so that I can have an on/off toggle to free up my mouse key to launch missiles or pop flares. Is this a possibil...

Contrails on command

I'm trying to figure out how to use the smoke generator to make contrails on command. Things I'd like to do: -Assign the smoke to a key to allow for high altitude combat. Basically I don't want to have to hold down my mouse button to get the smoke. -Move the start of the smoke farther back behind th...

Re: Formation flying spacing

Ahh, Mr. Clueless here.

It works well on = and - (the + requires a shift-key on my keyboard) thanks for the tip.

This makes for a lot better pics thanks.

Re: Formation flying spacing

Mac version may be different, but for Windows it's at the bottom of the Keys tab. I got the same setup, but my mouse's scroll wheel doesn't work for it. I've tried it in replays and and such, but without luck. It's a Kensington Model# 72121 http://eio.com/p-29666-kensington-72121-mouse-in-a-box-opt...

Re: Formation flying spacing

Okay thanks. I was able to crunch some numbers and edit the start positions and formation spacing of the planes and It seems to work out. I got the lateral spacing much wider but a little more than I wanted, and it looks like I made a mistake with the forward/back dimension in this pic: http://img81...

Re: Formation flying spacing

Waspe, you're right in that those lines get added to the .yfs file. I've seen that first hand with some of the experimentation that I've done. Try starting at one of the North or South STPs. From what I've seen, that crazy maneuvering is the AI attempting to get into position, but over correcting. I...

Re: Formation flying spacing

Manual formation flying would be time consuming to an extreme (I have maybe 5 minutes experience with that). Shouldn't the AI planes know where they are supposed to be in relation to the lead plane I'm flying if I specify the formation distances in the .yfs file? All that input is only tied to the l...

Re: Formation flying spacing

So any idea how to fix that? I'd like to get a shot similar to this: http://southeastasianews.org/images/USAF_F-16A_F-15C_F-15E_Desert_Storm_edit2.jpg But the spacing of the standard formation flying, makes everything too close together, hence why I tried to make the spacing a little farther apart t...

Re: Formation flying spacing

They might just form a straight line right be hind you. Not quite a straight line, more like one inside the next inside the next. Take a look: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/411/screenshot20111114at334.png/ When i first started out, they started zooming all around behind me and weren't in for...

Re: Formation flying spacing

Thanks. I can change the distance to what I want, but is it possible to delete a couple of the AIs so that they don't cause a massive fireball behind me after I start the flight? When I start, the planes start in their default positions really close to me, but then spread out making a lot of collisi...

Formation flying spacing

Hey ya'll Is there an option to adjust the spacing for planes using the "Form on my wing" command, or the default formations? I want to make a few wallpapers of some planes flying in formation, but with a larger gap between the planes. I was looking for a four plane formation, with about 50m lateral...

Re: Empty .lst files

With the Chippy ho! I made the .lst file correctly but it wouldn't work for some reason. Someone sent me a link to theirs which worked and the .lst files were identical and worked for me. I don't know if it's because I'm on a mac and something just wasn't making the mac version happy or what.

Re: Empty .lst files

Thanks guys.
I was getting a little worried that something on my computer wasn't working quite right. I've had .lst issued before with Martin's Chippy Ho! and for whatever reason that particular lst file got messed up, so I'm glad that this is completely normal.
