How can I make the module missile manager to drop fuel tanks?

I was complaining a bit about the 12 flare pods on the Du-11B, which is kind of excessive, but only 6 flares stay on the craft, which I guess is okay. It just matters because too many flares has a heavy performance hit.

I'm going to declare a six ( 6 ) flare pod maximum on crafts, because, well, laggy performance sucks.

Download this craft:

It has drop tanks. However, the fuel tank will always be locked if you reload a quicksave, due to how the Modular Missile Manager works. So you have to unlock every fuel tank in a drop tank every time you load a save.

It works under the same principle as the routing devices we use. It's a GPS-based launch, and the AI will fire GPS-based weapons always at the set max range. Though, it helps if you don't have other weapons overlapping that range.

Oh sorry... no wonder my test battles were slower than usual... and, what do u mean by 6 stay on the craft? They explode or something?

Well the other 6 are on the PRD, so they get detached.

It would be easier if you quoted who you were speaking to.

Despite that , you craft is good ;)

Just thinking, if a plane have more wing area  and control surface, will its turn rate increase?

Yes

(@dundun92  :D )

Keep in mind that it will also increase drag and reduce top speed.

Yes, more wing area means greater possibile turn rate(note: if there is insufficient control authority, the plane cannot turn fast enough to reach max theoretical turn rate), at the expense of drag. More control surfaces increases control authority (allowing faster movement/responsiveness), but like reaction wheel, cannot increase your turn rate.(technically, since control surfaces produce some lift, they do increase max theoretical turn rate. However, this is usually only makes a difference on small aircraft.)

@Box of Stardust, if I use the reloadable missile thingy, set action group rearm to every single action (stage, brakes etc.), I can have the AI help me rearm missiles.

Holy. I can carry 20 times missiles into battle.

We've been told by the BDA devs that under full AI controls, aircraft do not reload missiles.

Hi,  lets  clear up  these misunderstandings.
There is no death ray, and there will not be one. 
There is a module that can be fitted to missiles , and is currently fitted in only two missiles, uniquely named, in the BDA parts collection.  Its a simple matter to ban use of two missiles just like you do lasers.  
The reloadable rail cannot be reloaded by AI, and therefore is of no use in AI comps, the AI will treat it as single fire only. 
Also as mentioned in thread and the bit you didn't quote is that even in manual use there is a limit to the amount of times it can be reloaded. It is not an infinite supply of missiles, add to that , that there is no reloadable missile part in BDA . The module is provided mainly to be used by weapon mod makers.
Perhaps a bit of an over reaction on your part.

 

Now if you mean that with action groups, while under full AI control, the AI will be able to reload missiles, then we'll look into it.

Should I give you the test craft?

Have an example craft?

Yeah, but I am currently busy. Will upload later.
