        I followed your LUA example, but it caused the sim to fail to start. Not sure where I went wrong.

        But it looks great in screenies.

                  {"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_GLASS", 0 ,"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_GLASS", false};
              Now Download RAR,
              Extract the .EDMS to /CoreMods/Aircraft/F-5E/Shapes/ Folder
              (Wing Tank Shape Taken from T-38/F-5A/B MAX File Created By FastCargo)

              Extract .DDS Files to the Livery Folder You want to Use Tanks With, ie /CoreMods/Aircraft/F-5E/Liveries/F-5E/USA Standard/

              It's not working anymore after the latest update I really love this mod

                Nice job SkateZilla
                By the way, what's that in the nose of the fuel tank ? Taxi light or position light ?

                                  New Version: 08.24.2017

                                  This Version is Self Contained Mini Module now, Requires only a small edit of the F-5E.lua now.

                                  1. Extract Folder to /Saved Games/DCS.<install>/Mods/
                                  (should be /Mods/F-5A Tanks Mod/entry.lua)

                                  2. Modify the F-5E.lua in NOTEPAD++, Under Local TIPs, Add:
                                  Code:
                                  { CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}", arg = 308, arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =7, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank
                                  { CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}", arg = 314, arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =1, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank

                                  Notes:
                                  -This Mod will still trigger Integrity Check Fail.

                                  -Textures Updated w/ Cleaner Decals.

                                        uhm despite that i have installed the files in the right directory and edited the F-5E.lua file as instructed, the F-5E-3 will still appear without the wingtip fuel pods!

                                        im on the latest 2.1x alpha, what could be wrong?
