Problem with my F-104 fuel tank

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a little problem with the F-104 fuel tanks (NATO). Right tank doesn't appear :dntknw:

 

I think the problem comes from the "Asymmetrical" line in the weapondata.ini but I can't find solution to that...

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Ludo

[WeaponData001]

TypeName=Tank170_F104

FullName=170-gal Drop Tank

ModelName=tank170l_f104 <<<<<<< Notice it's the Left Tank

Mass=605.559998

Diameter=0.475000

Length=5.572000

SubsonicDragCoeff=0.200000

SupersonicDragCoeff=0.770000

MaxFuelAmount=501.230011

Asymmetrical=TRUE <<<<<< Set to TRUE

RightModelName=tank170r_f104 <<<<<< Now list the opposite. In this case, The "Right" Tank.

HideStationPylon=FALSE

 

 

This Information is from the Stock WeaponsData.ini of SF2 for the Stock F-104's. If You've made additional Tanks or Changes, Be sure the Information in the Data.INI's of the Tanks in the Weapons Folder looks like that above.

Thanks for your help, I've looked in the data.ini and it seems to be ok :

 

data.ini for TANK_170F104NATO :

 

[WeaponData001]

TypeName=TANK_170F104NATO

FullName=170-gal Tank NATO

ModelName=TANK_170F104NATO

Mass=605.559998

Diameter=0.475000

Length=5.572000

SubsonicDragCoeff=0.200000

SupersonicDragCoeff=0.770000

AttachmentType=

SpecificStationCode=

NationName=

StartYear=0

EndYear=0

Availability=0

BaseQuantity=0

Exported=FALSE

ExportStartYear=0

ExportEndYear=0

ExportAvailability=0

WeaponDataType=5

MaxFuelAmount=501.230011

Asymmetrical=TRUE

RightModelName=TANK_170F104NATOR

 

and for TANK_170F104NATOR

 

[WeaponData001]

TypeName=TANK_170F104NATO

FullName=170-gal Tank NATO

ModelName=TANK_170F104NATOR

Mass=605.559998

Diameter=0.475000

Length=5.572000

SubsonicDragCoeff=0.200000

SupersonicDragCoeff=0.770000

Availability=0

BaseQuantity=0

Exported=FALSE

ExportStartYear=0

There is certainly a little something to do, but I don't know what......

1) Back Up and take out Entry #2 You have listed above. It's making two references to a "Right" Tank.

 

2) If this is for SF2, Then the Tank Skins go into the Aircraft's Skin Folder.

Here's a better Example of what's going on......

 

We'll use the F-104's Olive Drab Tanks as an Example.

 

[WeaponData001]

TypeName=Tank170_F104OD

FullName=170-gal Drop Tank OD <<<<< The Tank's Name

ModelName=TANK_170F104S <<<< Model for the Left Side

Mass=605.559998

Diameter=0.475000

Length=5.572000

AttachmentType=

NationName=

StartYear=0

EndYear=0

Availability=0

BaseQuantity=0

Exported=FALSE

ExportStartYear=0

ExportAvailability=0

WeaponDataType=5

MaxFuelAmount=501.230011

Asymmetrical=TRUE

RightModelName=TANK_170F104RS <<<<<< Model for the Right Side.

 

 

 

Now in Our Weapons Folder, I'll have the Data.ini above with a Tank170_F104OD.INI and the Two Models and the Skins for both in the "Tank170_F104OD" Folder.

 

In otherwords, Not two seperate Folders for Tank Type, But one.......

BTW

If the F-104 Tank Skins were for the "Stock" F-104 that comes from ThirdWire, Then all that's required is to place the Tank Skins in the Aircraft's Skin Folders.
