Gents, I´ve been messing on Hs 129B Data.ini in order to make the tail whell unit NOT to retract as the real plane. No luck... I set the following parameters:

 

// Landing Gears -------------------

 

[TailGear]
SystemType=LANDING_GEAR
Retractable=FALSE  <----- set as FALSE - doesn´t work
DeployTime=5.0
AnimationID=
DragArea=0.08
HideGearNode=FALSE
ModelNodeName=TailGear
InsideNodeName=
ShockAnimationID=4
ShockStroke=0.04
SpringFactor=0.1
DampingFactor=0.1
WheelNodeName=TailWheel
RotationAxis=X-AXIS
ReverseModelOrientation=FALSE
RollingRadius=0.13
CastoringWheel=TRUE
CastoringNodeName=
Steerable=TRUE
MaxSteeringSpeed=30.88
Locking=FALSE
MaxSteeringAngle=45.0
InputName=YAW_CONTROL
ControlRate=1.0
HasBrakes=FALSE
RollingCoefficient=0.05
MaxLoadFactor=4.0

 

What I did wrong and how to make it work? Thanks buddies!!

If it is animated together with the main gear ( one animation, which is the case IIRC, ), then you cant separate the tail wheel by changing ini stuff.

I've heavily updated the 129 for my own WWII/ WoR install which is somewhere in deep storage now.

All kinds of stuff.. from engines, RPM, cockpit RPM gauges, ammo counters, ammo loads, gun pod ammo loads, armor ...

But I too had to live with a (inaccurately) retracting tail wheel :D

And the canopy is opening the wrong way too, IIRC.. moving up instead of sliding back...

Thanks for replying Crusader. I´ll keep on trying. I just removed the tailwheel doors and made some corrections on skin. I´ll keep you guys aware of any new discover. Thanks!

Here's my attempt

 

[Tail]

...

SystemName[004]=DummyTailWheel

 

[DummyTailWheel]
SystemType=HIGHLIFT_DEVICE
DeploymentMethod=AUTOMATIC_SPEED
Setting[1].Angle=10.0
Setting[1].DeployValue=0.0
Setting[1].RetractValue=400.0
MaxDeflection=10.0
MinDeflection=0.0
ControlRate=1.0
AnimationID=4

 

[TailGear]
SystemType=LANDING_GEAR
Retractable=FALSE
DeployTime=4.0
DragArea=0.25
HideGearNode=FALSE
ModelNodeName=TailGear
ShockAnimationID=
ShockNodeName=
ShockTravelAxis=Z-AXIS
ShockStroke=0.11
SpringFactor=1.0
DampingFactor=2.0
WheelNodeName=TailWheel
RotationAxis=X-AXIS
RollingRadius=0.205
ReverseModelOrientation=FALSE
CastoringWheel=TRUE
CastoringNodeName=
Steerable=TRUE
MaxSteeringSpeed=41.15
Locking=TRUE
MaxSteeringAngle=25.0
InputName=YAW_CONTROL
ReverseInput=TRUE
ControlRate=1.0
HasBrakes=FALSE
RollingCoefficient=0.05
MaxLoadFactor=3.0
IsSkid=TRUE
ContactPoint=0.0,-6.12,-0.575

 

The wrong thing is the tail wheel is not rolling anymore
