I know I asked a long time ago, but cant find my old question. What value do I change to edit when the afterburners kick in? I have edited the J57s to smoke with water injection via "afterburner", I would like it to kick in at 95 or 98 percent however rather than 90%. TIA for your input

I think what you want are these entries under the engine section of the aircraft's data INI file.

IdleThrottle=0.10 <-------------
IdleRPM=0.66
IdleNozzle=0.90
CruiseThrottle=0.37 <---------
CruiseRPM=0.82
CruiseNozzle=0.25
MilThrottle=0.65 <---------------
MilRPM=1.00
MilNozzle=0.25
MaxThrottle=0.78 <-------------
MaxRPM=1.00
MaxNozzle=0.25
FullABThrottle=1.12 <----------
FullABRPM=1.00
FullABNozzle=0.90

The difference between MaxThrottle and FullABThrottle controls the percentage of throttle that kicks-in the afterburner.

In KJakker's posted example of 0.78 and 1.12, the afterburner will ignite at 69% of throttle.

Changing the 0.78 (MaxThrottle) or the 1.12 (FullABThrottle) will change the percentage of throttle that ignites the AB.

thank you gents. upping maxthrottle to .03 below FullABthrottle set it to kick in at 98%.

Nice work, daddyairplanes !

It looks just like the old video clips of 52's belching smoke as they lifted off.
