Nose wheel steering stock F-104G

Recommended Posts

Hello modder brothers,

I thought there was a long time ago (beginning of SF1 days) a mod that the nose wheel of stock (flyable & ai)

was steering. Wanted to use that for the sock SF2 F-104G.

But i can´t find that mod.

Can anybody point me to that mod or does anyone know how that works?

You can add steering info to the Nose Wheel entry in the A/C data.ini if you've that available.

 

Steerable=TRUE

MaxSteeringSpeed=41.15

MaxSteeringAngle=45.0

In other words, you'll need to extract the .ini from the CAT file if you don't already have it out there for another mod.

need to add the CastoringNodeName= which, unfortunately, was left out of the data ini. That's create the visual of the nose wheel piviting

 

CastoringWheel=TRUE

CastoringNodeName= <----

Steerable=TRUE

MaxSteeringSpeed=41.15

Locking=FALSE

MaxSteeringAngle=25.0

InputName=YAW_CONTROL

If (and I do mean if) the 2Gen LOD is based off of the 1st gen LOD then this will work.

 

CastoringNodeName=lg_front_piston

 

It's the same node for the shock in the 1st gen F-104 and the shock still works and steers.

that was the clue I needed!! Using an 08 level 104G lod, that shows up on the 'LOD Hunt'.

 

EDIT:

forgot I have archived pre-lock extracted cats.

Yes, that is the node name for the 104G and CF-104s as well

No Stock TW with 3 Tone NATO Camo skin. I extracted the LOD's from the cat to find the node.

I just ckecked Ajundairs Starfighter's and it looks like he used the same node names for the gear as TW, so the mod to steer should work on his 104's as well .??? Have to check it.
