Hi my fellow flyers, just a moment of your time ! does anyone know how to stop my aircraft from shifting? I have put in static mode (well not so static I have just disabled the engine and control surfaces in data ini. and then edit in a map editor for custom missions to place the aircraft at location desired within the mission txt file all seems ok when start SFP1 and there she is my so called static aircraft not going anywhere but staying on the grass yipppeee ! arrgh but wait a minute if you look close enough you can see the aircraft shifting ever so slightly mmmm I thought I got it aircraft not moving prop is static no pilot! this problem I have spent hours trying to solve it! the time you take off for a mission the static is one end of airfield the time you get back its at the other end lol so annoying! so if anyone can help and give me some pointers if you please before I pull my hair out and kick the cat !!! no not really I love animals....cheers oh by the way its a SBU5 Dauntlass and F4U-1 Corsair and running SFP1

i'd simply remove all statics. they're more trouble than they're worth.

 

irrc, doesn't the 08 level generate them automatically, via the game engine?

Hi guys thanks for your replies,I know I could stick with proper static aircraft and use 08 level generate them automatically or not use at all but you can't place them where you want them they are put in area's you don't want them and it is randomly set for aircraft type you get what you get if you know what I mean!! so you are limited and if you want a certain paint or squadron place it in a location you want you can't and you are limited on aircraft types available! I would like to repaint and re-decal which you can do more easily with core aircraft and use for my own interests! I have the WW2 static Spitfire, Hurricane,bf109,and so on (P40,B17, (which is used in Pacific Theatre) but not seen a Pacific Static pack yet which have SBU5,SB2U,F4U-1,F6U,TBF3,B26,B24,B25 and so on, is there a WW2 static aircraft pack for pacific theatre? not seen one yet if you do know please direct me would be good!! or need a solution on aircraft shifting with core aircraft then the world is my ouster lol...

 

Cheers...

no statics exist for what you want.

 

considering the fact that 98.6% of all modders are ONLY building for SF2, the need for such things, especially in game that's, well --to put it bluntly - 1stGens are pretty much goners-- is moot.

 

also, you cannot place decals on static lods. there's no way to do so, as they are TERRAIN objects, not real aircraft.

 

Trust me, I'm the Terrain Guru

 

also, it's oyster

Hi Wrench, yeah sorry about that (Oyster misplaced key y-u lol...) so can you do what I am looking for in SFP2 and is there a Pacific Static Pack for SFP2 the only thing with a change over is will all my moding be a waste of time as transferring from SFP1 to SFP2 or will it be a dead loss? I will have to start again no!!! just thinking about gives me a headache after all these years! there must be a way on aircraft shifting must be a number crunch that will sort that in the makeup of things in SFP1 I am so close can't believe there is no Static Pacific Aircraft Pack!

not really. in fact, I've removed 99.9999999999999999999999999% of all statics from my terrains. they only get used in certain applications where such items would be necessary (read: aircraft factory roll-out ramps). with the use of limited nations in the terrain inis, it keeps things 'more theatre appropriate'.

 

as to making the jump, well that's your choice. I can't advise you there. But yes, expect a buttload of work, as 99.9% of all 1stGens need some kind of 'fixing' for sf2, especially the ww2 stuff (which some of us are constanly working on). some are quite simple and easy, some not so much.

 

but's it's the only way to go, if you want to stay current. hell, even the DAT has finally moved to SF2-only items.

True, but it is also a fact, that older and slower systems working better with 1st gen. The loading time for instance of WoX is much faster than in SF2.

Hi, hi, hi, I'm with you Michael,  we are "goners" but I don't mind it, still having loads of fun in the pre-history...  :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

      Hi community!! Now that I have some more free time, I'd like to go deeper in terrain population and realism. Adding parked and static aircrafts adds life to airbases. Is there any way to add specific parked aircrafts to airbases?

      If I have seen a Curtiss Seamew before then it has been confined to the place in my mind that all the darkest things are hidden away.

      So I saw a couple of videos of F-22s starting up. They sound weird but they're quick with it.

      Versión del F-15 adaptado a cazabombardero todo tiempo, cuando entró en servicio en la USAF, los F-15E fueron dotados de un radar AN/APG 70 del tipo multimodo (impulsos Doppler+banda X), después de servir en varios escenarios de combate, la USAF pidió una modernización en su aviónica a Boeing, el cual junto con Raytheon, remplazaron los APG 70 por radares tipo AESA de barrido electrónico activo, los AN/APG 82 V1, que contaban con varias cualidades superiores que sus antecesores.
       
      Esta versión del F-15E esta desarrollada sobre la base de la versión F-15E Strike Eagle V1.3 de Dave con permisos otorgados, intentando mejorar la aviónica de los F-15E y dotarlos de una cabina propia y correspondiente.
       
      El F-15E proporciona las siguiente mejoras:
      3 pantallas MFD con la información necesaria para el piloto virtual. Versión de radar lo mas fiel al AN/APG 82 V1. Identificador IFF (Amigo-Enemigo), en la pantalla del radar los enemigos aparecen de color AMARILLO y los amigos de color AZUL (solo en modo TWS-Track While Scan). El APG 82 tiene una ventana de escaneo de 120° y un rango de alcance de 160. Versatilidad de armamento tanto aire-aire como aire-superficie. Muestreo de rangos para misiles AA de radar activo y semiactivo.

      En fase de pruebas de combate consiguió victorias contra J10A y MiG-35 Fulcrum F.
       
      Agradecimientos a Dave y el equipo de trabajo del F-15E V1.3, a CombatACE, al grupo Strike Fighters Series y sus modeladores.

      This version of the F-15E is developed on the basis of the version F-15E Strike Eagle V1.3 Dave, trying to improve the avionics of the F-15E and provide them with a corresponding own cabin.
       
      The F-15E provides the following improvements:
      3 screens MFD with the information necessary for the virtual pilot. Radar version as faithful to the AN / APG 82 V1. ID IFF (Friend or Foe), on the radar screen enemies appear yellow and friends of BLUE (TWS-only mode Track While Scan). The APG 82 has a scanning window of 120 ° and a range of range of 160. Versatility both arms air-air and air-to-surface. Sampling AA missile ranges for active and semi-active radar.

      In combat test phase got victories against J10A and MiG-35 Fulcrum F.
