Re: Heavy Metal Jet Team L-39's, T-33 and Mig-17

I saw them at Portsmouth, NH in August this year. I wish i had been able to see the P-80.

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

Yes, I quite agree. Reading is an invaluable skill. Seeing as I don't have the time to work on making the tank srf change mentioned above (Stupid research paper), I edited the .dat file of the one major plane I wanted to change and moved the order of the hardpoints around to make loading the weapons...

Re: Major Map error

I feel really stupid now. I originally had "Red Flag user/Major..." I forgot about the "_" in Red_Flag. It works completely fine now. It seems that YSF cannot read spaces like Pro/Engineer. With a space like I originally had, the map name was RED and I got the errors when I was trying to fly the map...

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

That is a great idea, but I have no idea how to work gepolyx. I'm on a mac and it seems that every YSF software but blender is windows based. While I have a boot camp partition, I cannot access it frequently due to power consumption. Any chance you could move the vertices to be the same as a B500? h...

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

Okay, I think I can get it from here. I'll have to do some fiddling after classes.

Re: Major Map error

It came from Major's .zip from December 16, 2009. Here's my copy of it.

Major Map error

Hello everyone, I've been fiddling around with Major's pack and noticed a red flag map folder that wasn't referenced in the scenery .lst. When I add it to sce_major.lst, i get a series of errors and then YSF cashes. Load Error: ./Flag Unrecognized:N KLSV_RW21R Error in keyword:E 0.00 292.77 169 159 ...

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

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...
