[1.4.x-1.8.x] Airplane Plus - R26.4 (Fixed issues/Github is up to date) (Dec 21, 2019)

Recommended Posts

I'm loving the update so far! Just one thing: are you going to give the landing gear TweakScale compatibility? Thanks!

It can't, unfortunately, the minimum power it can be set with is a 0.1 multiplier for the power. So let's say it has 40kN of thrust, it will be (40 x 0.1 =) 4kN minimum. Any lower than that (0.09 - 0.01 multiplier) and it will flameout. But I said on a few posts above that I'm working on this and testing on Pre-Modern and Modern props. I might just increase the speed at which the flameout happens in Early engines but I'm working on it and will be available next patch.

Cool, good to know :)

I can not get the RPM patch for APP to work :( I followed the directions to the letter and none of the cockpits have MFDs still, I even tried just replacing the internal.cfg files and that didn't work either, any help?

@theonegalen I saw flameoutBar and machLimit in ModuleEnginesFX and it works, actually. I'm going to implement it now on the test development :) 

@fourfa Yeah, for some reason they kind of want to show off the whole IVA instead of a window view which is kind of unfortunate.

@Giossepi I'm not sure if the RPM patch is inline with the new release of APP. And I'm sure my next release will break it. I don't inherently support RPM so it's a user made patch.

@[INDO]dimas_1502 It's the same problem with the lack of distance to dampen and probably with the landing craft moving around the water, not helping that. I'll be trying to fix all the no low dampening suspensions in my current development.

no no it also happens in the ground
the ship is in static condition, parked with AirPark

@[INDO]dimas_1502 If you browse a page back, you'll see that the issue persists while on land as well.

What I've been busying with for a while:

As such, the Mk1 Non Commercial Cockpit will be getting a major facelift to accommodate these new features:

The other seats are used here (as well as new IVA props that also work):

Lovely! I especially like the rudder pedals prop! Been wanting someone to make that for a while.

It's actually a feature from firespitter. I just made the pedals from stock models, traced them, reduced a few polygons, made with own textures, then configure them to work like that. Even the stick is from the stock design as well. The pre-modern style pedals and stick however, are stock-alike firespitter ones.

I've been trying to find a good Mi-8 recently. How many good (i.e. good-looking, well-flying, NOT made of dozens of mods and hundreds of parts) versions of this immensely popular helicopter do you think I've found? Not a whole lot.

So I made my own one and I dare say it's at least half decent in all respects. Made by a novice, sure, but it looks nice, it flies better than a brick and won't be too hard on your computer.

How do I get these cockpit features in Airplane Plus? Is this in a future update or is it an addon? Some help would be great! Thanks again! :D

Could you also add a Panavia Tornado ADV cockpit? name e.g. Vintage Mk1 non-commercial inline cockpit

Thanks once again! :)

@YoloT47 There are no current plans to add any part for the next patch but I'll add that on the list to check out.

Thanks blackheart! That means a lot! :wink:

@blackheart612 The changes look great. My only complaint with your current IVAs is that the airspeed indicator is obstructed in the current MK1 non-commercial cockpit.

The lip on the dashboard covers the airspeed indicator. This happens with and without RPM.

Here's a link to a screenshot on Imgur displaying this behavior. I've placed a red box around the airspeed indicator to illustrate what I mean. You can also see that the navball is improperly centered when using the latest version of RPM. I have included a screenshot of that as well in the album, and it is also visible in the screenshot below.

@YoloT47 It will be available on the next release. Anyway, I'm taking requests but don't expect them to actually be added or at least be added immediately. Keep in mind everybody else also put in requests before you. And as you saw, no new parts are going to be added either on the next patch.

@CrisK I'm actually not sure how old the RPM patch is. At this point, the default has a lot more props and the navball isn't even navball anymore as they're mostly for atmosphere anyway. Here's the latest (extended revision) Mk1 Non-commercial cockpit.

Edit: I just saw your reply. Thank you for the update! :D

That helps a lot! Thanks! :D

Also, when around is the new patch going to be applied?

Not sure yet, hoping it's somewhere around the corner, mostly fixes anyway. It's a lot of work but it's quicker when I'm not making new parts. Which is why I'm focusing on it right now.

@blackheart612 This helicopter got me thinking... Will your set once include a clamshell-style rear cargo bay door, like on actual Mil helicopters?

I've been experimenting with the .cfg file for the 0.625m turboprop and it is possible to reduce/eliminate the flameout of the engine beyond 170 m/s. 
Basically I tried cutting and pasting a simpler velocity curve from a KAX engine (no negative values) and the engine will keep going past 300 m/s. Of course it doesn't have the power to go that high but it's possible to go faster than 170 and no flame out.
