SF2E+June2010-Patch and weird looking F/A-18E

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

I applied the latest Thirdwire-Patch to my SF2-Europe-Install and the first Beauty i rolled out of Hangar was a F/A-18E from this SuperHornet-Package

The Patch makes the Cockpit / Canopy look like this:

I looked at the ChangeList.txt from the Patch and the Inis of that plane, but i have no idea, why that fat black stripe now appears around the Canopyframe. Any ideas?

As far as i tested, it is the only Aircraft, that shows this after patching. Need help ... it´s one of my favorite Toons to fly around :this:

 

 

Thanks!

In f/a-18 data.ini change:

 

 

[AircraftData]

...

CGPosition=0.00,0.00,0.00 --------> to 0.00,0.35,0.00

...

Great! That´s fixing the problem!

Thank you very much! :clapping:

 

So, only one Question from a Noob, that is willing to learn a bit more: what means the "cg" in CGPostion?

 

Tnx

CG= Center of Gravity

 

new statements since the Expansion Pak add cockpit offset postioioning in relation to aircraft CG. EVERY pre-SF2 aircraft has some displacement of the cockpit due to this new parameter.

 

Usually handled by raising, and moving forwared, the cockpit position in the _Cockpit.ini. I find moving it forwared between 0.10 and 0.25 usually fixes it. Sometimes a verical move of 0.20 moves the cockpit lods framing to just about where the external lod (ie: the aircraft itself) framining ise

 

One can also hide the cockpit frame nodes via a cockpit ini edit (can't remember where I saw, but it was just the other day. Corsair in Suez Expansion???? disremember...)

Thank you :good:

 

There´s another issue with the Pylons of the F/A-18E, but i think, that should be moved over to the Modding-Part of the Forum ... :grin:

The issue is?

 

Ah, the Creator of that wonderful Bird, aren´t you? :good:

 

When i switch to external view and place the camera in front or above the aircraft, the pylons (and the attached loadout) aren´t in line with the fuselage ... they aren´t "looking" straight forward (hard to explain with my poor english, sorry).

They seem to have an angle of about 5 deg. off of the fuselage, so that the loadout, especially long rockets like the HARM describing a slight "V" if looking from above.

(Sorry, no Screenshot at hand here atm ... but i can deliver one, when i´m back home) :heat:

Ahh no it's not an issue, that's the actual design:

As the link will say, initial testing of straight in-line pylons had weapon seperation issues on the real plane, so Boeing had to angle them (4 and 3.5 degrees) so weapons would properly leave the aircraft.

Oh... strange thing. That was just new to me. I never was aware of that, whilst looking at photographs of the SuperHornet.

In fact, i always found the F/A-18C-Series more beautiful and elegant in its design :grin: . Now, i know why ...

Angled pylons .... tztztztz :rolleyes:
