Hi all,
since it'll be the leading tanker for the relocation to Japan which will start in the following days I need someone who knows what he's doing to add the damage code to it so it can be added to the available aircraft list for the OPRF events and it can be "legally" used in the flight since we all have to use damage coded planes.
Who can do that in time for the relocation trip?

Current aircraft version can be found here: https://github.com/JMaverick16/KC-137R/

Quick question - can the engines be failed via the equipment->system failures dialogue box?

And how many of the instruments/systems are tied into this that you know of?

Awesome, that'll make life much easier. I'll whip up a damage.nas and send you a pull request tonight.

If you'd rather do it yourself - the damage.nas file is largely plug and play if the system and instrument failures are working correctly - just need to modify the missile damage distance, and either assign an on/off property or have it be always on, whatever you'd prefer. Just pull it out of one of the fighter jets.

Better if you do that. ;)
Anyway, better if you don't send a pull request since it's only it0uchpods which push updates to my folder and we've already had problems so if you send it to me by e-mail it wold be better so then I send it to him.

I made a generic damage.nas for inclusion into planes.

You can get it here: damage.nas

What, if any, are the prerequisites to make it work? Regardless, thanks very much.

Just add the file, and include in the list of nasal files loaded inside your -set file.

KC latest update including new sounds, features (including the damage code) and liveries will probably be submitted to Git in late afternoon (UTC) today.

After not working for a while on this aircraft, I think that project will restart very soon, starting with an updated damage file and new textures/sounds. The quicker me and it0uchpods finish this one, the sooner we will start working on the AWACS version ;) .

As the work continues, the KC-137R keeps receiving constant updates and improvements. Thanks to it0uchpods, now we've implemented his IT-AUTOFLIGHT, a sophisticated and simple autopilot which adapts to the aircraft by looking at the data present in the FDM. There's more to come in these days but it's really getting a good one ;) .

Thanks, it's based on the very latest USAF/NATO updates to the E-3 Sentry but with new engines. Yesterday we've added the radios plus TACAN instrument: both working.
As soon as we are at a good point, we'll start on the Rivet Joint.

BTW, I need some help about the AWACS radar since we need to implement the terrain masking stuff to it. We've tried with Pinto's radar2.nas file from the 707 but didn't worked.
Anyone has a clue about it?

Yeah, I can help with that. I helped Mav get it to work on the Sabre, should not be much difference.

Lets meet on mumble soon and talk about it, sorry was busy right now, with finding new event times.

And btw., best to take the radar from the Mirage, its where radar2.nas comes from.

You need to add radar2.nas to set file and then put some lines sorta like this at bottom of radar2 (for example):


setprop("instrumentation/radar2/sweep-width-m", 1000);
setprop("instrumentation/radar2/radius-ppi-display-m", 1000);
setprop("instrumentation/radar/mode/tws-auto", 1);
setprop("instrumentation/radar/mode/rws", 0);
setprop("systems/electrical/outputs/radar", 30);

var myRadar3 = Radar.new(NewRangeTab:[10, 20, 40, 60, 160],NewRangeIndex:1,forcePath:"instrumentation/radar2/targets",NewAutoUpdate:1);

myRadar3.init();


The 2 first lines there I have no idea what the numbers should be.
The 3rd and 4th line, sets initial mode to TWS, you can switch them around if you want to start in the other mode.
The 5th line gives power to radar.
The second last line makes the radar object.
The last line starts the radar.

Major updates to both tankers and AWACS in these days, including working radar for all models with OPRF standard.

KC-137R-RT:



EC-137R:




I'd like also to have the AWACS as OPRF aircraft now. ;)
