I can just eliminate the co-pilot from the A-37B (A-Team's excellent add-on) data.ini file and externally the co-pilot is gone. However, from inside the cockpit, there is this ugly dude still sitting in the right seat blocking my right side view. Anybody got any ideas? In Vietnam, many flights of the A-37B were solo, so I am trying to get rid of the right seat noise-maker and view-blocker.

Well, conceptually, it's pretty easy to 'remove' something from the cockpit.

 

Go into the xxxx_COCKPIT.INI file of the aircraft you want to change the cockpit of.

 

Look for the following lines:

 

Instrument[xxx]=

 

Add a new line in that area, next in number sequence:

 

Instrument[xxx]=Move1 (or something similiar in name)

 

Then, add these lines to the bottom of that same file:

 

[Move1]

Type=AIRSPEED_INDICATOR

NodeName=(part you want to make disappear)

MovementType=POSITION_Z

Set[01].Position=-100

Set[01].Value=0.0

Set[02].Position=-99

Set[02].Value=1.0

 

Basically, you're moving that part of the cockpit 99 meters 'down' (which essentially moves it out of sight). The trick is trying to figure out what the name is of the part you want to move.

 

If the cockpit has an .OUT file, that could help. The .OUT file has the list of parts that make up the mesh...

Thanks, FastCargo. I'll see if I can go from there, take notes, and post the how-to here.

For those interested the solution is in the Super Squeek Tweaks elsewhere in this forum.
