Better decals ; improved data.ini and loadout.ini :

 

a little preview :

 

Camo :

Silver :

 

Mirage56.jpg

 

Camo with RPK bomb rack :

 

Mirage57.jpg

 

And silver with RPK bomb rack :

 

Mirage58.jpg

 

I'll try to make skins for EC 2/13 Alpes (silver and camo) and EC 3/13 Auvergne (silver and camo).

 

If somebody have informations about the real Mirage 5F loadout, It would be helpful.

 

Thanks

Great project!

I made the 5F flyable too and have added the RPK-17 but only used the stock skin.

 

Weapons in French service were very basic:

MATRA rocket pods (usually on inboard stations )

LAU-32 rocket pods ( outboard stations, for training )

Slick and retarded bombs, 250 and 400 kg, French SAMP series and Mk82 , two in tandem on centerline and RPK-17 fueltank/bombrack combo which can hold up to 4x 250 kg bombs

The Dassault 5F promo picture also shows AS.30RC , centerline station, but I dont know if this was used operationally

5F never got RWR

A2A missiles.. I cant remember the details, they had none at first ( main mission purely A2G ) but I think they were modified later for AIM-9B/F or even Magic

 

BTW, check the fuel capacity value of the RPK-17 data ini, the BFT-type tank is working correctly since November2009 updates ( or one update earlier, cant remember ) but the old editor always deleted the fuel

edit: changed pics to links

edit 2: some speiling ...

:ph34r:

 

The 5F also had no ranging radar, the CSF sight was limited to fixed and gyro mode.

You can delete the avionics ini and the RangingRadar entry in the 5F_data ini

I use the cockpit of the Mirage 5BA, I think it's the best one for a Mirage 5F (very simple : no avionics and no radar... :grin: )

 

Today's update :

And the right door is door number... *drum roll* 3.

 

IIRC

nose_gear_door1 is the main door.

nose_gear_door2 is the part attached to the gear.

nose_gear_door3 is the frontmost part, the one we're interested in.

Can´t wait!

Are you repainting the skins too?

 

For the EC 3/13 silver skin, I just improved the stock skin. For the camo, I started to make my own templates ( there is a lot of rivets :heat: ) and I will paint a brand new skin.

 

You can see more screenshots : Mirage 5F WIP at C6

Hello,

 

I need help for the nose gear door decal (again...)

 

I try, try and try again to place my decal on the nose gear door, but unfortunately nothing appear :dntknw:

 

So this is a part of the decals.ini :

 

[Decal005]

MeshName=nose_gear_door3

DecalLevel=2

DecalFacing=Bottom

FilenameFormat=Mirage5F/d/Auvergne Silver/Gearnum

Position=4.25,-0.85

Rotation=0.0

Scale=2

DecalMaxLOD=3

 

If one of the Combatace decals expert see what's wrong, it would be helpful... :good:

Position=4.25,-0.85

 

since the decal facing is bottom, this value means its 4.25 meters to the right and 0.85 aft of model centerline

 

start with 0.0 for left/right to have it on the centerline , then adjust fore/aft

Hi Ludo! :bye:

 

Why didn't use your "tailnum" instead of "Gearnum" since you're using "scale=2"?

 

Good stuff :good:

Just because this is not the serial number of the airplane on the nose gear door, but the letters : SE for the 13-SE airplane.
