Hey could someone help me, when i use Mig-21bis with 4 AA-8 Aphids on inner pylons then it just appears as an empty pylon in game. it works if i only use 2 aphids. but that means i cant get a full missile load.

thanks.

Sounds like you don't have the '2IR' entry under the 'AllowedWeaponClass=' entry. Open up the Mig-21bis_Data.ini and have a butchers at the LeftWingStation/RightWingStation entries (they might show up as 'InnerLeftWingStation' or some variation of that. It should look something like this (this is my entry for my Mig-21-93, but it's identical where it counts):

[LeftWingStation1]
SystemType=WEAPON_STATION
StationID=3
StationGroupID=2
StationType=EXTERNAL
AttachmentPosition=-2.01,-1.26,-0.38
AttachmentAngles=0.0,0.0,0.0
LoadLimit=1000.0                                                                                                                  <<-------- Make sure the allowable weight is enough for 2 Aphids and the dual IR rack. Just pump this value up a bit. 1000 is more than enough for 2x Aphids.
AllowedWeaponClass=AHM,IRM,2IR,SAHM,BOMB,LGB,EOGB,EOGR,LGR,RP,TER,FT     <<-------- Make sure the entry 2IR is in here somewhere
AttachmentType=SOVIET,
ModelNodeName=WingPylon_L
PylonMass=60
PylonDragArea=0.02
LaunchRailNodeName=MissileRail_L
LaunchRailHeight=0.10
LaunchRailMass=25


Try that and see how you go. Let us know if it doesn't. If it doesn't, just copy and paste the entry for your left/right wing stations you're trying to mod and we can figure it out from there.

okay i think its something else because if i click on it in the loadout it works but if i dont it doesnt appear, so non-player planes cant have it. heres the part of the data.ini

RackSpecificStationCode=RACK_AA-8

 

this line should be removed all together, because the current (?) RackSpecificStation code is either different, or there is none - also it prevents loading of other racks like the MDB2-67

 

MiG-21 loadout will be fixed very soon, maybe even today...  I 'm about to release some testing planes with the next RSSW Test version.

 

2IR_AA8 is the rack reference name which is used by 2x R-60 missiles.

i think i did everything but this still happens

I'm almost ready.... )

 

If you are using stock weaponry,  2IR_AA8 has the rackspecific setting you mentioned.  RackSpecificStationCode=RACK_AA-8

 

It is only loaded, if both the weapon station (on plane)  and the weapon has this entry.  (I modified so, there is no such setting anywhere).

 

 

I suggest you install this package of aam's into a clean weapons folder.

http://combatace.com/files/file/15125-red-side-standard-weapons-pack-aam-public-test-version/

 

I get back to you this evening with the new version.

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT;

 

I think, the very first problem was caused by the missing/bad entry of the of the rack itself. So the 3D (LOD) not placed - the missiles were there, but rack not placed.  Something might have been overwritten the stock entry.

The second time, RACK_AA-8 entry prevented the loading of it, alltogether. 

 

Either try this test pack, or try to edit the 2IR_AA8 rack itself to see if it has faulty entries.



This is my version.

 

 

TypeName=2IR_AA-8
FullName=APU-60-II
ModelName=APU-60-II_L
Mass=60.000000
Diameter=0.258000
Length=1.792000
SubsonicDragCoeff=0.200000
SupersonicDragCoeff=0.770000
AttachmentType=SOVIET
SpecificStationCode=
NationName=SOVIET
StartYear=1955
EndYear=2020
Availability=2
BaseQuantity=2
Exported=TRUE
ExportStartYear=1955
ExportEndYear=2020
ExportAvailability=2
WeaponDataType=6
WeaponsRackType=2IR
NumWeapons=2
LoadLimit=50.000000
DiameterLimit=0.130000
LengthLimit=2.220000
MaxFuelAmount=0.000000
Attachment01Position=0.000000,0.000000,-0.129000
Attachment01Angle=0.000000,0.000000,0.000000
Attachment02Position=-0.158000,0.000000,0.094000
Attachment02Angle=0.000000,0.000000,90.000000
Asymmetrical=TRUE
RightModelName=APU-60-II_R
AttachAtZero=FALSE
HideStationPylon=FALSE

 

 

EDIT2,  2IR_AA8 rack should be also in the weapon folder, like the rest of the weapons.  Just to make sure.  I don't know how the stock one works, I remember I had something with it myself that time.

here's an idea ....

 

rename BOTH the data and loadout inis, so the game reverts to stock. pick a year to fly AFTER 1974, and see what happens

would have been nice to tell us that at the start, wouldn't it????

 

the bis and bisB are stock in SF2E.

It is me, to say sorry.  If you had used the RSSW MiG-21MF,   in the loadout file, the rack name was mistyped...

 

[AirToAir_82]
StartDefaultDate=1982
DefaultFor=CAP,INTERCEPT
Loadout[01].WeaponType=AA-8
Loadout[01].Quantity=2
Loadout[01].RackType=2IR_AA8

 

The rack name is

 

Loadout[01].RackType=2IR_AA-8  

 

This typo causes the exact problem. If you load the missiles manually from the list, all worked fine, but the call from the ini caused this bug.
