McDonnel Douglas DC-10-30


Presenting ... The DC-10-30 Airliner! This bird is created from Marcfighters KC-10 model and some ini editing by yours truly to remove the AAR equipment. in this version the aircraft is shown as many airlines flew her in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. This supersedes the previous version.
INCLUDED
DC-10-30 aircraft (template included) with 70s,80s and 90s skins

******************************WARNING*******************************************************************************
this bird is rather old, and has its limitations. it is not meant for flying on recon missions,
but rather mainly for eye candy and somethin to possibly intercept or escort. while you CAN
fly it, that does NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. that said buyer beware all quirks of this bird like the pitch
down on gear and flap retractions and the non moving control surfaces.

 

****************************USE OF THIS MOD*************************************************************************
I will allow fairly free use of this mod in any other mod. What i (at this time) request is that you do not
create a new skin based airline for it. the airlines are on as tga so that many airlines show up at one time.
A seperate say "Pan Am" skin will ruin the effect and there will be 8-9 Pan Am birds on the tarmac. Any airline
you would like to see, pm me and i will either tell you how to make it or time allowing make it and add in. Thank
you.

 

again, thank you for downloading this and i hope you enjoy it

Thanks for this addon!   :good:

It would be nice to have civilian air traffic in SF2, at least in some scenarios like GermanyCE. It would be nice if some modder finds a way to do it, or at least a way to see them parked in airports. I would give more realism to the sim.

I don't know if the game engine allow that.

The airliner nation is for them to show up in game when the game feels like putting them in (or you use mission editor to plug em in)

Again, when the game wants to,, thry will show on the tarmac like in the main screen shot. As for a civilian airport that take a 3d modeler to make the terminal and a terrain guru to set parking slots at yhe gates. It would be allowed, but i dont know if anyone is interested right now. Maybe when i get the next three airliners done

That sounds interesting, so if I create an "airliner" nation, should it be FRIENDLY, ENEMY?? or is it possible to set it NEUTRAL?

If it is possible to set it neutral, it would be great.

No nuetral. There is an airliner nation in this mod. Put it in to make an addition to the formation ini so a stream of 10 is spread in a line over 10 miles or so.

If one makes a RedAirline, you could have Aeroflot, and other warpac or arab airlines. How ever THAT is not in this mod at this time.

The inspiration for the formation ini came from Reforger and RSR. esp in RSR when Keflavik turns back all the inbounds due to the attack. If one desires 1 ship, remove the formation ini, or load as such in mission editor. Removing the formation ini will default the formation to Transport role and be single.

 

As was the case in the real ODS, and would have been the case in REFORGER, many airliners would have been used to get people and any thing not needing a ship to move. Return flights early on would have been hauling civilians and dependents. Hence the trail of aircraft
