I have just identified an error in the F-22 Raptor which might partially explain why it's a bit sluggish in take-off

The fuel weights in the Data File are written as pounds, when they should be kilos. This gives you about 38,000 lbs of fuel, which means you'll never need a drop tank again. Ever.

 

In the Data File under Fuel, there are entries for one fuselage cell and two wing cells. In each case the entry should read as follows:

MaxFuelAmount=2797

 

This should give you an accurate 100% fuel weight of 18,500lbs (and not 38,000lbs)

 

Also in the data file, you can adjust as follows:

EmptyMass=19658

 

This will give a clean weight of 43,340 lbs, which is correct for the aircraft.

 

You're welcome

Actually, I found the official Lockheed-Martin site gives internal fuel as 18,000 lbs, so that would be three entries of 2722, if you want to be accurate.

I read your posts. Funnily enough, there used to be a Flight Sim called Sabre Ace which used a flashing green dot to represent an enemy aircraft when it was too far away to be visible as a shape. The critics slagged it off en masse. I thought it was a great idea. I thought the Sim was great too, but you can't fight critics when they are determined to bring something down. So, I like your idea.

I use a full-screen HUD on the F-22. So I never use the cockpit graphic. I use 20 text size, which suits my eyesight.

HUD has everything you need, except fuel state. I then use the pop-up radar at centre bottom, enlarged from the original.

Try:

PosX=0.355

PosY=0.654

Width=0.25

Height=0.333335

WOW!
