Nope, Sorry ...

 

I cannot add to the accolades so far.

Doesn't seem like that much of an improvement over the original, to me.

 

(1) That huge PT-5500 fuel tank STILL won't drop [with either <CTRL-D> or <CTRL-J>].  Thought you would at least have "fixed" that issue, from the original;

 

(2) No nozzle animation for the exhausts [again, the "fault" of the original .lod]. But, still ...

 

(3) Wish somebody would do something with that huge Gunsight that shows in all the HUDs based on that particular cockpit file ...

 

(4) Nice skins, however ...

 

[Y'know, I REALLY wish Modders would "Beta-Test" their efforts, a bit, before uploading them for Community use.

But then, that's probably just me ...]

 

Anyway, Thanks for this, PauloPanz.

Nice try.

 

Happy Gaming!

It's obviously on purpose

 

[CenterlineStationT]

SystemType=WEAPON_STATION

StationID=4

StationGroupID=2

StationType=EXTERNAL

AttachmentPosition=  0.0,-2.10,-0.26

AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0

EjectVelocity=0.0,0.0,-1.0

LoadLimit=5000

AllowedWeaponClass=FT

AttachmentType=WP,SOVIET

ModelNodeName=CenterHP01

NoJettisionTank=TRUE

PylonMass=86.18

PylonDragArea=0.02

FuelTankName=PTB-5500

 

And if you don't like it, delete the entry.

Are you sure that such a big tank can be dropped without colliding with the plane? : /

It was never meant to be a total overhaul of the original model. Only as a stopgap until the new, and far better model of Centurion1 an 76.IAP-Blackbird will be released.

Paulo asked me if I could get rid of the black rope and a new tank (not jettisonable as in real life).

The real improvement is behind the DATA.INI file and the skins.

DARoot, I for one, find your criticisms in very bad taste. However, if your comments are in fact intended to be constructive, a good indication would be offer solutions toward the issues you had identified. Otherwise it would be much better to hold your peace until you could in fact do something about it.

After all these modded efforts are free.
