Please help me test the F15 radar, I just made a bunch of changes, there are bound to be errors. We need to get them all weeded out before event.

Thanks to Raider1 for the bug-reports.

What to test:
The right TEWS in all its aspects.
The left VSD in all its aspects.

Where can I download this F15 we are supposed to test?
F15 with radar update (only for FG 2016.1 and later)

What was changed?
F15: TEWS: Fixed that aircraft could be hidden if its not in radar cone.
F15: TEWS: Let radar decide if a echo is in radar cone, instead of math check.
F15: VSD: Increased number of targets to 20 plus selection up from 5. (if any know the real number of targets the radar could show in RWS-SAM mode, please tell me.)
F15: VSD: Made the SVG match number of max targets.
F15: VSD: Only bother with echos inside radarcone.
F15: VSD: Fixed if selection was met before all echoes had been processed, it would not show rest of echoes.
F15: VSD: Set selection hidden if nothing is selected.
F15: VSD: Make sure echoes are updated graphically immediately and in right order so the screen shows no flicker of echoes.
F15: Radar: Since the echo list is updated continously now, notice echoes even though they are not near sweep.
F15: Radar: Removed check for if echoes are under horizon, and show them anyway, due to radar not having doppler capability.
F15: Radar: Ignore RCS check, since that list is old and not updated.
F15: Radar: Stopped extra decision on if echoes should be visible or not, if in radarcone they are visible.
F15: Radar: Selection next/prev target now considers if echo is in radarcone, so it doesn't mistakenly select a target that is behind or similar.
F15: HUD: As a byproduct of the above changes, echoes in HUD are now only shown if they are within selected radar-range. That can help to declutter the HUD if many targets. But if F15 drivers prefer to see beyond radar range setting, let me know, and I will change it.

Why did you break it in the first place, it was working fine.
Except for the first line in the above list, the rest was fixes to stuff that was not working as it should, and hasn't worked for a long time, if ever.

Is it possible to have a separated download for each plane? I don't want to download 'em all.

But you fight against people that fly the other planes, and need an updated version of those to properly view it over MP if changes were made to that, as in the latest release.

But for example this time the M2000 hasn't received updates, but still I have to download it alongside with the other two planes...

It's a good point, for sure, but Leto is distributing these out of the goodness of his heart, and doing maintenance on these planes, so I'd hate to burden him even more so.
