UUUUFFFF I would love to see this Cockpit integrated to the F-104 Aircraft it would look so SEXY I can get the 3D model if you integrate it to the aircraft for every body to use.

No need for that.

A cockpit for the 104 is already under construction.

Thanks for all of the great work with these aircraft.

I am flying the D and G and trying to get a better understanding of some of the parameters used for bomb dropping.  specifically, items like ripple interval and quan to drop.  when using aircraft such as the SU-25T, as the keyboard inputs are made, you can see what the current value will be.  Like 1, 2, 4 or all  and interval as 0, 0.1, 0.2 etc.  Parameters such as these are not shown in the F 105 D or G and i see no way of presetting or knowing what will happen when i drop.

 

Is there anyway of 'knowing' what the current setting is?  or some way of hard-wiring a value to insure the desired setting?

 

I love the THUD, and have great fun with it.  I am just looking for some way to have better understanding / control for my salvo / ripple work.

Cheers,

I think it is ripple decrease in the inputs? When you hit that button, an orange-ish light comes on in the forward-right console. That indicates that you will now just drop the bombs from the selected station from one wing. The bombs on the other wing stay put. I have not yet found a way to just drop e.g. 3 of the 6 bombs from the 6-bombs-rack...but to divide it between stations is a step ahead I think 😉

Mmm I don’t think so but I will try at lower speed. Any indication how slow should it be to work?

 Thanks 

You need to be below 250kts. If you are faster, the gear does not come down. I think it is 450 km/h for the F-105. Same with the flaps. Flaps stage one 250 kts or 450 km/h, landing flaps (flaps stage 2) even slower, I think 200 kts and 400 km/h...

Can the VSN_F14 mods perform carrier ops..that is, are they able to land using the trip wires and take off using the catapults?  I've only had one landing and the display showed the nose buried under the main deck.  And the only way I could take off using the vsn variant was if I taxied down to the 4th wire of the deck and simply full-throttled with flaps and Afterburners.  But attempting to take off from the catapult area forward deck results in an explosion the moment the front wheel exits the bow.

The SFM is causing problems with the aircraft carrier.
-Catapult launch does not work with SFM, last working DCS version is 2.5.6.49798.
-When launching the aircraft explodes, on some mods it works and on others it doesn't. I haven't found the bug yet.
-Landing must be very accurate, no margin for error.
- Since ED locked the DLL, I don't fly DCS anymore, so I don't see the errors.

Question for the VSN folks like @cdpkobra, what is involved in having different pilot models for some of these mods? I've noticed most simply use a modern USAF pilot, and I assume for each you'd have to go back and either have someone model or buy/convert a pilot model and then animate it in the EDM. Is that correct? It'd be great to see more of the community mods have helmets and a base pilot that fits some of these "eras" better, but I fully expect it means time, effort, and money in a new pilot model for each one.

Unfortunately, I can not model, I bought the pilot and put in the planes. It is difficult to find good 3D pilot models.

Do they need pictures to reference? 

 

If so, PM me

I will go after that! 

Maybe I´m able to get some. Will let you know mate.

Is VSN compatible with DCS Open Beta 2.7, or would I need to downgrade to use the aircraft?

I'm testing VSN one by one...following the installments of Flaming Cliffs 3 and using the 'Saved Games' folder.  At this hour, all VSN modules are working with v2.7 and I do note that Rafale, Eurofighter, Mirage lll, and the VSN-F-18 variants can land on the regular and super carrier.  But hookup for cat launch code is absent and will probably remain this way due to the SFM limitations.

New liveries for the F-105D and F-105G. Correction of some textures and the number display on the front landing gear. The liveries correspond roughly to the coloring from the photo documents. Procedure for the installation. First unzip the VSN_F105.zip into the VSN_F105 directory and overwrite the files when prompted. Secondly, unzip the VSN_F105_2.zip into the VSN_F105 directory and overwrite the files when prompted. This zip contains all changes to the number representation on the front landing gear. As a last step, unzip the VSN_F105_465th TFS.zip into the VSN_F105 directory. This zip then only contains the liveries of the 465th TFS. Have fun with it.

Hi everyone!

 

Really sorry if it's inappropriate in this topic, BUT... I'm trying to find a way to contact the VSN team for maybe a commissioned work. I'm a French director, made a couple of DCS short films, TOP GUN: MAVERICK & GOOSE last year and more recently THE GHOST. I've discovered DCS World about 2 years ago and had great fun making these movies, allowing me to combine my two passions: aviation and cinema.

Anyway, I discovered the VSN_F104 mod and love it, congratulations for this awesome piece of work! The thing is, for the past few months, I did some research for my next DCS movie, a tribute to Chuck Yeager and his zoom climb mission in 1963. I'd like to know if anyone in the VSN team would be interested in providing a private NF-104A mod in order to make this DCS movie more accurate? If not, I intend to use the actual F-104 mod but as I'm going to put a lot energy, time and effort into this, I'm asking... Hope that's okay. I really think this would be a great opportunity to tell this amazing story to the DCS community and to all aviation enthusiasts.

 

Please, let me know. Happy to chat about it, anytime. Any advise are welcome 🙂

Thanks and kind regards ++

Hello,

 

I'd like to thank everyone involved with these mods.  thank you all very much!

 

I can not seem to figure out how to launch the F-14(only one I have tried) from the default carrier.  

1) Launch bar wont go down to the shuttle

2) Shuttle either stays behind the F-14 or sometimes moves ahead of the nosewheels

3) Automatic wing sweep control? Is there one?  I can not find it.

4) F-14 explodes when it gets to the end of the launch(front of the deck)

 

So what am I missing/doing wrong?

 

Thanks for your help

Hi.

Great Idea. Would really love to see a good DCS-Movie featuring the F104. The Problem with the NF104 is, that it would need a totally new aircraft model which needs to be animated and everything. So I think that is not too likely. If you need more "thrust" in the F104G, that could be done without problem ;-)

In my testing and reading, the VSN version of the F-14 is using the SFM...thusly, its not going to 'act' accordingly atop a carrier's deck and carrier ops in general.  In my test, I was never able to 'hook up' with the launch bar.  Instead, I found the only way to launch from the deck was to literally drive down to the 'Ready Five' station, point my nose at the bow, and simply let'er rip- regardless of anyone standing in the way.

 

I doubt seriously that the modder will be able to script the needed code for accurate carrier ops with any of the VSN models.  So, iits a swim at your own risk deal.  And landing the VSN variants onto the carrier has to be dead on precise, otherwise, I've found myself catching the wire and my nose is under the deck, doing doughnuts and ending up over the side as I witness the code trying to interpret what the module is supposed to do.  Ive had excellent landing with Eurofighter and Rafell, but since then and since the update, I'm not able to repeat a proper landing.  I've been far too busy with house work and health issues to get a firm grip on the Heatblur's release, albeit I can land it on the carrier w no problems, and I bought the Super Carrier for fun, but alas, VSN modules are best enjoyed from a land base.

The F-105 did indeed have a timeless profile.  Not exactly the sexiest plane from a bird's eye view, but viewing it from any other angle gives the impression of a great all around aerial design.

Well, here's an example of the VSN-F14 as I attempted to bring the wings out before taking a stroll through the mountains- the bird never lost control, I was able to climb and roll with ease-

 

However--

Ah yes, the elusive "Lifting Body" !!!

 

 

Reminds me of the F-15 Eagle that lost an entire wing, after an air to air collision, pilot knew something was wrong, trimmed it out, and returned to base and landed.

No one could believe what just happened, including the pilot. McDonal Douglas sent some people to Israel to see for themselves and debrief the pilot...
