Is it possible to have two drop tanks in one plane folder?

Recommended Posts

I have one plane with two skins.

 

I have two drop tanks; one per skin.

 

Is it possible to have a different drop tank for each skin in the same plane folder?

 

IE. Choose one skin, it shows up with one drop tank. Choose the other skin and it show up with the other drop tank?

Not automatically. You would have to choose the proper tank in the loadout screen (plus make a tank with the proper skin if you don't have one...which would involve hex editing).

Aircraft ? For a SF1 Aircraft you need a droptank for each skin, Look at the Canberra's, They can be selected in the loadout menu or set to load with the loadout.ini , To do this you have to add (wet) WeponeStations for each diffrent droptank skin.

 

Example:

 

[LeftWing]

ParentComponentName=Fuselage

ModelNodeName=LeftWing

 

SystemName[008]=LeftRP4

SystemName[009]=LeftGP

SystemName[010]=LeftWet < --------------Tank Red

SystemName[011]=LeftBomb

SystemName[012]=LeftWet2 <--------------Tank Blue

 

[LeftWet]

SystemType=WEAPON_STATION

StationID=11

StationGroupID=2

StationType=EXTERNAL

AttachmentPosition=-2.096,0.0,-0.80

AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0

LoadLimit=350.0

DiameterLimit=

LengthLimit=

AllowedWeaponClass=FT

AttachmentType=UK

ModelNodeName=Left_Pylon

PylonMass=5

PylondragArea=0.01

FuelTankName=TANK44LL_UK <---Red

 

[LeftWet2]

SystemType=WEAPON_STATION

StationID=12

StationGroupID=2

StationType=EXTERNAL

AttachmentPosition=-2.096,0.0,-0.80

AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0

LoadLimit=350.0

DiameterLimit=

LengthLimit=

AllowedWeaponClass=FT

AttachmentType=UK

ModelNodeName=Left_Pylon

PylonMass=5

PylondragArea=0.01

FuelTankName=TANK44Blk_UK <---Blue

 

 

At one time I think I saw Droptanks with diffrent skins , the same name,on the same station? Not sure how that works. Hope this helps.

it works in SF2, and aircraft BUILT for SF2, because the drop tank mesh is part of the aircraft LOD, therefore textureable (?) individually

You can also put decals on them, too, because they're part of the aircraft

 

in 1stGens, nope. as was stated above, seperat skins, seperate lods that need internal hex editing to change the *skinname*.bmp for each one.

Hex editing is like mixing with black magic, never know what demon you'll conjure up.

 

Guess if I want two drop tanks I'll just stick with two planes for the time being.

 

Thanks.

If you have the two diffrent tanks with diffrent names and texture already,then you just need to do the weaponestation adds to the Aircraft Data.ini
