just to be safe, as I'm the High Priest of CYA, rename the cockpit folder to xCockpit.

 

using the pointers in the main ini, will pull all the needed bits from the relevant ObjectData cat.

 

like so:

 

CockpitDataFile=F-8C_cockpit.ini

AvionicsDLL=Avionics60.dll

AvionicsDataFilename=F-8C_avionics.ini

 

alos, what's up with all the odd-ball coding stuff at the top of you post??? Try not to use ANYTHING other than the stock fonts available here. We (the moderators) hate having to edit posts. Thanks!

cockpit may need repositioning.

 

pull the F-8C_Cockpit.ini from whichever ObjectData.cat it's in, put it in the F-8A folder, and match the positon of the pilot from the aircraft's data ini

 

like so (these are ONLY examples!!! not the real thing!)

 

data ini:

 

// Crew ---------------------------------------------------------

 

[Pilot]

SystemType=PILOT_COCKPIT

PilotModelName=PilotN1

Position=0.0,5.42,0.75 <---this line!!

SeatModelName=seat_f-4

SeatPosition=0.00,5.42,0.38

 

f-8C_cockpit.ini:

 

[CockpitSeat001]

ModelName=F-8C_pit

Offset=0.0,-0.10,0.0

Position=0.0,5.56,0.75 <<--this line!!

ViewAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0

 

some adjustments may still be necessary, either up/down, fore/aft but left/right should be OK

 

the numbers work like this:

 

 

0.0,5.56,0.75

 

0.0 is distance from center, in meters left or right

5.56 is distance from center, in meters, forward or aft (aft numbers have a minus sign -)

0.75 is distance from center, in meters, up or down (down has the minus sign)

 

there are alos some other odd entries, that may or may not be needed in the data ini. In the AircraftDAta section,

somethime this line is needed (in bold)

 

[AircraftData]

DestroyedModel=F-8_Destroyed.LOD

DestroyedEffect=VehicleFireEffect

EmptyMass=7476.7

EmptyInertia=92146.6,9761.3,96832.0

ReferenceArea=34.84

ReferenceSpan=10.87

ReferenceChord=3.59

CGPosition=0.00,0.00,0.00

CockpitCGOffset=TRUE

OnGroundPitchAngle=1.5

 

it's doubtfull here, so don't use it yet
