Will there be a dedicated cockpit ?

You mean as opposed to this one ..?

 

Actually yes, there are already different cockpits for the RNoAF versions and maybe I'll do a dedicated one for the NF-5a ..

What about  RF-5, are there plans? :brr:

It's in the pipeline, I'll be making a second .. third .. fourth .. fifth (you get the idea :)  ) attempt to get the nose right later after I've completed the other versions.

I am... speechless. My eyes are delighted to see all these details, it's fantastic! I must be dreaming :lol: 

My thanks to you for such dedication to this project. The F-5 is really a beauty!

Guys I'm stuck, I'm trying to figure out the data entries for the chaff/flare dispensers on the NF-5a.  The physical dispensers are built into the model (as are the fuel tanks - no problems with those thank God!!) and I've set up them up in their own little weapon folders; the problem is finding the correct entries for them in the weapon stations part of the data file. Here's what i've got - which is not working ..

[Dispenser pod 1]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=8
StationGroupID=5
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=0.56,-4.4,0.58
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,-40.0
LoadLimit=100
AllowedWeaponClass=EP
AttachmentType=NATO
SpecificStationCode=Flare
ModelName=
ModelNodeName=
PylonMass=
PylonDragArea=
ExternalPodName=F5a_Flare
ExternalPodNodeName=Dispenser_L

[Dispenser pod 2]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=9
StationGroupID=6
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=-0.75,-4.4,0.35
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,220.0
LoadLimit=100
AllowedWeaponClass=EP
AttachmentType=NATO
SpecificStationCode=Chaff
ModelName=
ModelNodeName=
PylonMass=
PylonDragArea=
ExternalPodName=F5a_Chaff
ExternalPodNodeName=Dispenser_R

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello

 

Check what was done with the F1CT, crusader did something siimilar

Thanks for the reply, from what I can see, the Phimat chaff dispenser on the Mirage is a separate model.  I'd be looking for data entries for one that is incorporated into the aircraft model .. sigh!  It's these little things that cause so much trouble!!!

ModelNodeName= did you try this ? 

 

F5a_Chaff    /  Dispenser_R

F5a_Flare /  Dispenser_L    

how these two are related in 3 d model? how do you want it to be shown.. because that part I don't understand... If its just pack with chaffs/flares why not use model node name....same as with any other pod...

unless I don't understand how chaffs flares work on tiger

I tried using modelNodeName as well, but I still can't get the chaff/flares to show up as options (weapon stations in the loudout screen in the game

Pure beauty...

 

we do have a RF nose but the dimensions of it are wrong , i´m currently working on a shorter more correct nose

this is the old nose we have , the new one will look much better ( i hope )
