  1. Thanks! It's possible using the same method. Way above my skill level right now. I'd like to make some gear for a SAR/Medevac version tho. No, unfortunately I have to make a different model for the M134. It's next on the to do list I think it's possible in theory but it's going to look ugly with the ammo boxes feeding the miniguns because I assume they are part of the same 3d model.
  2. Almost done This should be doable too, I'll look into it
  3. Yes, the doorgunners are unaffected. I'm going to polish it a lil bit more and it'll be ready
  4. DOWNLOAD Installation: ************* 1. Place the "M23_pylons" folder in "C:\Users\%username%\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods\tech" or "C:\Users\%username%\Saved Games\DCS\Mods\tech" depending on which version of DCS you are using 2. Place the "UH-1H.lua" in "C:\Users\%username%\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\MissionEditor\UnitPayloads" (Make a backup of the original file, it contains all your custom payloads for the UH-1H) 3. (optional) place the liveries in C:\Users\%username%\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Liveries\uh-1h (2 liveries allowing you to dynamically add or remove the default pylons. See this video for how to use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nchMOhnO45g Special thanks to Upuaut, Grajo and Rato65
  5. Thank you! Hopefully one of these days I get around finishing it ---
  6. Place the liveries (for any aircraft) in C:\Users\%username%\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries in this case: C:\Users\Sim\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\uh-1h Create both the "liveries" and "uh-1h" folders if necessary
  7. v6.5 is out: https://www.mediafire.com/file/zlomy27s47edtix/Hercules_ver_6.5.zip/file
  8. Hi Didier, Maybe this mod might help, check this post in particular:
  9. Gorgeous livery leethy! Any reason why you've used .png instead of .dds for the diffuse?
  10. (the following applies to both community mods and DLC assets packs) DCS sets out to cover more than 70 years of warfare, it's ludicrous to expect ED to flesh out all these eras with air, ground and naval units, free of charge. No matter how vehemently a part of this community is opposed to assets packs and feel entitled to get them at no cost, there isn't a reality in which refusing to buy a product gets you said product for free. But in the long run the current system will benefit neither the anti assets packs nor the pro assets packs. The first group is locked out of a serie of servers and SP missions/campaigns because they dont own a DLC while the 2nd group has less content to enjoy because server admins/mission designers are concerned about accessibility. I discovered yesterday that the Aerobatic Online folks were running a modded server which doesn't require you to have any mods installed in order to join. The missing mods are replaced with placeholders models. Right now there are some limitations but if such a system could be expanded and become the norm, both for assets packs and mods, it seems to me everybody would win.
  11. The Australian Bushranger didn't have flex miniguns tho, they were fixed forward firing. What we have in DCS is a bit of a frankenstein system. see page 5: https://www.radschool.org.au/Books/Bushranger2.pdf
  12. It looks like the folks from the Aerobatic Online servers have found a workaround. I joined their modded server this afternoon and the mods you dont have are replaced with placeholders: I assume there are some limitations right now, since the Su-27 isnt really the closest thing to a MB-339 but this might be something ED could look into. Enabling a config file for modders or server admin to define which placeholder to use for missing mods (or...assets pack?) allowing anyone to join any server.
  13. F2 is a floating cam, F4 is "attached" to the aircraft. Like a gopro if you wish
  14. I mean, I know there're still there but you have to be ridiculously close to the crew to enjoy them. Even just sitting on the cat is too far to see the highest LODS. I understand the need for optimization but this is a really weird decision. AFAIK there isnt a single other unit in DCS that suffer from such a drastic lods reduction. It's also curious you've decided to nuke the deck crew lods, which are right under our nose, but the seamen one's which sits in the bubble or the island remain unchanged How it used to be: How it is now:
  15. If you're talking about the F4 view (in which case it's Right Ctrl + Right Shift + Numpad), It works only with planes and helos. You must be spawned in an aircraft in order to use it tho, it wont work if you're in spectator role
