Is it possible to have the LAU-68 look like a LAU-131?

Well, is it? Additionally, can the LAU-68 be renamed to LAU-131 within the DSMS and other systems? Reason is I'd like to have two optically similar LAU-131s which the jet sees as two distinct weapons/pods while they both carry the same type of rockets. This way it should theoretically be possible to single ripple fire (7) a full pod while keeping the other untouched as per the real jet/pod.

 

I've tried pointing the LAU-68 to the CLASS ID of the LAU-131 in the loadouts file, but then the game refuses to start, probably because it crashes upon seeing the same uniqe ID twice in the same file.

:huh:

 

Not sure if I'm missing what you're getting at, but what's wrong with just changing one of the pod types in the DSMS inventory? eg, if carrying 2x LAU-131, change one to a LAU-68 in the DSMS. The DSMS will then treat each as separate weapon types and you'll be able to select them individually and fire 7 rockets from a single pod.

 

The same technique can be used with Maverick to allow station stepping between IIR/CCD Mavericks with China aft short.

You're not missing the point. I know about the DSMS workaround for the MAVs, never thought of that trick for pods tho. Going to test it. I take it you've tried it?

 

Btw, what does POD SET SINGLE / POD SET DOUBLE mean in the inventory?

 

OK, tested and the workaround does its magic. The profile shows up twice when cycling with DMS though but at least it fires 7 out of one pod per burst instead of 4 out of the left pod and 3 out of the right pod.

Naa, I never use all these little tricks and techniques I've got in my head and mention on forums. ;)

You're not getting smart are you? ;)

 

Thanks for the tip!
