Thanks SkateZilla, great job done !

Here's a first RNLAF ( non available F-5E templates ) F16 camo trial skin of the former NF5 Testgroup with the tiptanks added to the wingtips.
Aircraft reg: K-3058

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.

BACKUP THE F-5E.LUA BEFORE YOU EDIT IT!


Modify the F-5E.lua in NOTEPAD++
Under Local TIPs, Add:
Code:
    { CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}", arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =7, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank
    { CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}", arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =1, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank
Modify Pylons 1 and 7 to Match the Code below:
Code:
       
       pylon(1, 0, -1.319000, -0.332000, -4.099000,
            {
                use_full_connector_position = true,
                connector = "Pylon1",
                arg_value = 308,
            },
            tips
        ),

            pylon(7, 0, -1.319000, -0.332000,  4.099000,
            {
                use_full_connector_position = true,
                connector = "Pylon7",
                arg_value = 314,
            },
            tips
        ),
Add Loadout Declarations to the Bottom of F-5E.lua, Below the make-tiger() Line:
Code:
declare_loadout(
    {
        category        = CAT_FUEL_TANKS,
        CLSID            = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}",
        attribute        =  {wsType_Air,wsType_Free_Fall,wsType_FuelTank,WSTYPE_PLACEHOLDER},
        Picture            = "PTB.png",
        displayName        = _("F-5A Wing Tip Aux Fuel Tank 50 U.S. GAL - Left"),
        Weight_Empty    = 15, --kg
        Weight            = 15 +  3.084 * 50, --kg
        Cx_pil            = 0.000244140625,  
        shape_table_data = 
        {
            {
                name     = "PTB_50_F5A-Left",
                file    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankL";
                life    = 1;
                fire    = { 0, 1};
                username    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankL";
                index    = WSTYPE_PLACEHOLDER;
            },
        },
        Elements    = 
        {
            {
                ShapeName    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankL",
            }, 
        }, 
    }
)

declare_loadout(
    {
        category        = CAT_FUEL_TANKS,
        CLSID            = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}",
        attribute        =  {wsType_Air,wsType_Free_Fall,wsType_FuelTank,WSTYPE_PLACEHOLDER},
        Picture            = "PTB.png",
        displayName        = _("F-5A Wing Tip Aux Fuel Tank 50 U.S. GAL - Right"),
        Weight_Empty    = 15, --kg
        Weight            = 15 +  3.084 * 50, --kg
        Cx_pil            = 0.000244140625,  
        shape_table_data = 
        {
            {
                name     = "PTB_50_F5A-Right",
                file    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankR";
                life    = 1;
                fire    = { 0, 1};
                username    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankR";
                index    = WSTYPE_PLACEHOLDER;
            },
        },
        Elements    = 
        {
            {
                ShapeName    = "F5A_WingTipAuxTankR",
            }, 
        }, 
    }
)
Now Modify the Livery description.lua You Use with the Tanks to Load the Textures:
Add:
Code:
    {"F5A_WingTipAuxTankL", 0 ,"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_DIFF", false};
    {"F5A_WingTipAuxTankL", 2 ,"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_SPEC", false};
    {"F5A_WingTipAuxTankR", 0 ,"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_DIFF", false};
    {"F5A_WingTipAuxTankR", 2 ,"F5A_WingTipAuxTank_SPEC", false};
    {"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

After Updates, DCS Will Replace Any Modified Files.

I Also Updated the Steps today to remove a step and make it a tiny bit easier.
