Hey guys, everyone should own the Huey!

PLAT cam updated for todays patch. LSO mission is much improved and matches our recently released training film in terms of the stack etc. The link is below but the first post is also updated.

Thanks for the update! I just downloaded it!

I am running Triple-Screens and when I press LAlt+F9 I am very far zoomed in. I have to reduce my FoV by pressing the RCtrl+/ everytime I go to this view. .. Is there anyway that I can adjust the FoV in the lua code so it starts at a better FoV?

I finally saw the sky blue arrows when my screen went black for a second as I quit the mission. Since they are the same color as the sky they are almost impossible to find if you are a noob. Is there any change you could change them to green or red or some color that would show up against the sky?

Thanks!

Hi Snacko, thanks!

The blue arrows are now a redundant feature and no longer required if you use OVGME to install the various views. The two overlay pages you require are automatically loaded as page 1 when you load a view (either VR or monitor).

As for FOV sadly no you have to zoom out each time, I never really looked in to changing it though.

Thanks, I see that I can just install separate mod for the diff views now.

25$ question: Is there any chance soon that the mod will not require the Huey as a module? Still got a few days of 50%sale on it so just asking....

Cheers!
It works perfectly without the Huey.

Excellent Mod VFA-113!! I have all installed, however, I noticed in the latest version (2.0), that there is only one crosshairs page in the Manual on page 1. The rest of the pages are the UH-1 manual pages. Am I missing something, as the one in your video with the additional information is certainly going to more useful.

I'm not going to buy an (very expensive) aircraft I have no intention of ever flying just so I can play LSO. Your subjective opinion doesn't apply. Not everyone has the money to blow on dcs modules. I for one enjoy the modules I do own, and would rather master them than to buy them all.

Would you please explain how to make that happen? Because I don't have the huey, and I just installed the mod (VFA-113 VIEW PLAT CAM - MONITOR), and the 'Manual' Option doesn't show up on the escape menu. And when I got LAlt+F9, I get a clear screen with no markings, crosshairs, or anything.



Also it does break the integrity check, making it fancy, but useless on all servers except for those that allow unpure clients, which is basically none of the big ones such as 104th or TTI.

I looked into the Folder structure and there is an 'aircraft' mod for the Uh-1H, containing the manual.txt.lua and the image for the platcam. I had a look at the lua file and I see lots of references to Uh-1H instruments and texts such as:
Quote:
Game Flight mode makes the helicopter much easier to fly. This mode is especially recommended for beginners and users without a joystick. Game Avionics mode adds arcade-type indication to the screen and simplifies target detection, weapons selection and firing.
It would seem that file needs some adjustment for other aircraft to work.
So since you claimed it works without the huey I'd like you to give a detailed explaination as to how to make that work please.


Thank you.

Just place the platcam image as the first image in the TF-51 manual folder and change the Huey’s in the miz file to TF-51s. You can change the Lua text if you need to but it’s not necessary. Everyone has the TF-51. The Huey is worth every penny to buy.

And yes this breaks IC, Jar has been kind enough to provide everything in OVGME format so it’s easy to swap it in and out. Might be worth showing a little respect to the people that spend hours putting together free mods for people just to get crapped on in the forums.
