Watched "The Right Stuff" the other night and remembered we an NF-104 and a map with Edwards AFB... have spent most of the afternoon above 100k ft...

For the life of me I cannot work out why the tip tanks are present, they shouldn't be as the NF-104 didnt have any. The first thing I thought to check was the loadout.INI but this model doesn't actually have one. I then read through the Data.INI and there is nothing calling out for tip tanks.

The only reference I can find are the three texture files titled SM_Droptank-F104", nothing in the ini's to actually request they be used... at least not that I can find

Anyone have any idea how to get rid of them?

But the wingtip tanks of the NF-104 hosted the RCS, right?

Founs this two, one with small wingtip addons.

And this pointing at the RCS on the wings.

The readme of the plane says the RCS is on the mod, anyone got it working?

The SF-2 model has built in tanks, so you need to delete them.

Here the working data.ini NF-104A_DATA.7z

:ok:

Thanks, owe you one... tanks have been banished :biggrin:

Just gotta work out why the rocket motor effect isn't showing and I think I'll be done tweaking my F-104's :smile:

Thats actually a JF-104, a slightly earlier NASA program, note the lack of a rocket under the fin. It was used for high alt research but it "only" ever got up to about 80,0000 ft or so. The NF-104 was supposed to be a trainer for X-15 and X-20 Dynasoar pilots, it wasn't really intended as a research platform in its own right.

Interesting conversation, is always cool to learn things about aviation trough replaying it.

Again, was anyone able to use the RCS?
