At the request of several members, I'm pitting together a package of RWR icons and sound effects. I will have two versions available, one with colored icons, as used on the latest displays, and one with the standard green icons.

 

The icons denote whether a threat is ground-based or airborne, and what mode the threat is in (search, track, lock). In the colored version, green = search, yellow = track, red = lock.

 

Unfortunately, limitations in the game engine prevent us from simulating actual RWR operation, meaning that we currently cannot identify threats by individual type (ie, MiG-23, SA-6, etc.).

 

Anyway, here's a video, using the "colored" icons:

That's what I got in stock Kfir using green symbols and stock icon size.

1st off, this is a great mod! Thank You Fubar!

 

Now, When i installed it, It didn't work. I re-checked everything,re-read the readme and everything was done exactly right.

 

But, I use Easy Avionics! Its simple to fix and i just wanted to provide instructions on how to make it work with Easy mode.

 

All you have to do is...

 

Copy the new TGAs, not the RWR folder, Just the new TGAs to your Flight folder and extract the EASYAVIONICSDATA.INI from the Flightdata.cat and edit it like this...

 

[RWR]

Type=3_RING

AirSearchTexture=AirSearch.tga

AirTrackTexture=AirTrack.tga

AirLockTexture=AirLock.tga

GroundSearchTexture=SurfaceSearch.tga

GroundTrackTexture=SurfaceTrack.tga

GroundLockTexture=SurfaceLock.tga

SearchPosition=0.90

TrackPosition=0.55

LockPosition=0.15

SearchSize=0.15<---Set Size to your preference

TrackSize=0.15<---Set Size to your preference

LockSize=0.15<---Set Size to your preference

SearchFlash=FALSE

TrackFlash=TRUE

TrackFlashRate=0.2

LockFlash=TRUE

LockFlashRate=0.1

TrackSound=RWRTrackSound.wav

LockSound=RWRLockSound.wav

 

And your done, this will give you a fully functional RWR and All RWRs will use the new symbols! Just wanted to pass this along incase anyone else is using Easy Avionics. Again, big THANK YOU to Fubar for this great mod!

Warlord,

 

Thank you for pointing that out, and for providing a solution.

 

Despite spending 5+ years mucking around with Third Wire sims, I wasn't even aware that easy avionics defaulted to it's own ini file!

 

Would you mind if I added this to the file's "description" page (crediting you, of course)?
