Hey guys,

 

Is there a way to make the wing pylons of the stock A-1H/J always visible, even if not loaded with any weapon? IRL, the pylons were always mounted under the wings, empty or not.

Yes, remove the ModelNodeName for every station you want to show up. 

 

 

[LeftOutStation1]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=1
StationGroupID=1
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=-5.90,-0.09,-0.63
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0
LoadLimit=113.40
DiameterLimit=0.36
AllowedWeaponClass=BOMB,RCKT
AttachmentType=NATO,USN
ModelNodeName=
PylonMass=10.00
PylonDragArea=0.01

yeah, cause the data ini gets "twerked" with every patch (as seen recently with the decal issues on the AD3/4 and A-1H/J paks)

 

but still, commenting out the node name would be the quickest

Good question and nice fix. Now I too am happy with my outer wing hard points. What about the centerline station?

 

[CenterlineStation]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=15
StationGroupID=6
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=0,0.81,-1.14
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0
LoadLimit=1621.62
LengthLimit=5.0
AllowedWeaponClass=BOMB,FT,TER,NUC,ECM
AttachmentType=NATO,USN,USAF
ModelNodeName=Center_Pylon
PylonMass=63.50
PylonDragArea=0.02
FuelTankName=Tank300_A1H
//FuelTankNodeName=droptank_C

 

It has a fuel tank node name also. On the subject of decent looking A-1Hs there is a few bitchin skins for TK SPADS not done yet.

The node name trick did it perfectly. Thanks guys, now I have a decent looking A-1H!

To finish the station mod, take all the pylonmass data, set it to 0 on all stations and add all the weight to the EmptyWeight  in the AircraftData section

Did any body else loose their outboard pylons on the last patch also ?

I did. Did they change the name of the model nodes ?

I also got this wicked fuselage seem that messes with the NAVY and MARINES decal there.

probably the same thing I went through a few years back (see above).

Extract a new data ini, and see if that fixes it

Again ? OK.

Did it fix that weird fuselage seem.

I've been enjoying your PBJ with the 75MM too much lately Wrench.

Thanks. CL
