NOT a WW2 style air gunner, but a 'standard' (mid-50s and later) pilot figure that faces backwards?

or, is there a way to write the "where and how he sits" statement, to have him be facing aft?

as you can see below (I've removed the cockpit framing for clarity) this aircraft requires the 3rd person to face his instrument panels.

any and all assistance is GREATLY appreciated!

Hmm .... maybe add pilot 3d model in plane 3d. No animation but better then nothing.

CL: right in one, my brother! Get to reuse all the decals from the "previous" mod, and with a blank slate skin, allow for skinners to make other units.

guuruu: i'm putting enough pressure on our 3d guy as it is! (perfectionism has cost! :wink:)

excuse the ignorant question, but you couldnt just rotate teh pilot 180 degrees in the data ini?

Is it possible ?

From looking at the AircraftObjects.DLL file the answer appears to be no. I see only entries for pilot and seat position, nothing about orientation. 

I used a Hex editor to reverse the orientation of the pilot that I attached above. It looks okay in LODViewer.

Hmm? I forgot what chapter in the NATOPS has the the direction on how to properly sit in the seat, but clearly this Naval Aircrewmen needs to comprehend it.

Here is your working 180 deg pilot.

And max files, if it's something wrong with scale or something ...

the pilot zip seems to be corrupted or something; WinRar gives me the following message

"the archive is either in unknown format or damged"

thanks for trying, anyway!

kjakker's seems to be working now. A little repainting to remove the USAF helmet tag, and we're golden!

Wrench, if there is a specific pilot that you want let me know. I could probably do the same trick with any of them.
