VSN flyable aircraft mods

That's the loadout except with wing tanks.  Normal RP6 flights had 6-8 750 lbers.  Or EW pods on the wingtips, or a single AIM9.
 

So I guess I could copy the Mk82 centerline loadout?  Replace them with M117s?

 

Why didn't the loadout work?

I tried to do something myself so that I could hang the 6 x M117 on the central weapons node, but it didn't work out. Once I was able to do it with the Su-17M4 plane, but not in the case of the F-105. I even wrote to the mod's creator but he didn't answer me.

I do not understand the question correctly, the bombs are defined in the "VSN_F105D.lua".

 

I'm new to luas and understanding their language so far is slow for me.  🙂

Hello, sorry for the translator, please tell me-the problem is this; VS_F 35+v2. 5. 5. 08 works-but I can't fly on it-I need a different version of the mod?I have the latest 2-5 version of the game......

I think you need Flaming Cliffs to fly it. I don´t have and i only can use the VSN aircraft as AI.

 

Hope it did help you in some way.

Best regards. Be safe.

Do you have FC3? 

Did you install it correctly for the version you are using? 

What do you mean latest 2.5? There is no such thing. Either you have 2.5, or, the latest version, 2.7,with which it might not work.

Well, I almost figured it out-F35 version 25610-it worked for me

I would like to adjust the internal suspension so that the GBU31 does not stick out of the plane-i need help

Hello folks,

 

Can anyone please tell me if you can use aircraft skins/liveries from other aircraft on VSN aircraft, example: Use a heat blur F-14 skin on VSN F-14? Sorry if this has been addressed before. 

 

Cheers Mates!

Nope. That’s not how skins work. It would be like trying to move one cockpit gauge from one aircraft and putting it in a completely different one, not going to happen - it’s meant for one only.

Cheers G.J.S. but now I have one last nagging question how/why can I find skins for VSN aircraft, and how can I tell them apart on DCS downloads?

 

 

Cheers Mate!

Go to the user files download page and type VSN in the search box in the upper right.  That will give you some other files that are not skins but will get you most of the ones made for VSN aircraft.   "VSN" will be in the description / details for identification.

I believe the model specified where the part of the image file goes for the wing, and where the image of the fuselage is taken from.  Different model, the "skin" bitmap will have to put it's wing and fuselage artwork in a different location on the bitmap. So the short easy answer is "no". 

 

Now that said... if someone had all the time in he world, and didn't mind the extra work... "in theory" it might be possible for a skilled skin painter to take an existing "skin", and use that artwork, to then place into the repaint for a different "skin/model" combination, and that could work.  But there's a few problems: actually doing this could be very frustrating and time consuming. It may not look very good due to issues with resolutions and copy/paste, and the surfaces being a different geometry definition due to different modeler having a new plan for laying out the bitmaps. And finally, because you are using someone else's artwork, the expectation is that you'd get permission to modify and share with the community, but you may be unable to contact the original author in some cases, a few may refuse, and if the skin was part of a paid module, you'd need to get permission from the original payware dev team.

 

Honestly, at some point it probably becomes easier for a skilled artist to just make their own version that is "inspired" by the original skin.

You need to find The right CLSID-Code for the M117 in the weapons.lua in your dcs installation Folder. Use NotePad++ for this.

Than you need to copy that to The pylon you want The bombs on...but I Think I habe looked and didn't find 6xM117...so it could be a waste of time...

There is a CLSID for an MER and 6 ea M117.  {6CDB6B36-7165-47D0-889F-6625FB333561}

 

Unfortunately the position of the bombs is not accurate and they overlap.   I tried to find a code file for that CLSID but was not successful.

 

I decided to make a new unit payload declaration using a BRU41A and M117’s.  It works and the bombs are positioned correctly.  I have not got around to repainting the BRU to match the Thud colors.  I created a wire map but got side tracked with VSN F/A-18D.

 

I am also searching for a way to get the Thud to drop CBU’s.  They sometimes carried 4 ea CBU’s for SAM suppression on the centerline.  I can get them mounted to the centerline pylon using a BRU41A and CBU52’s but they will not drop.  Wing pylons work fine.

 

Also trying to figure out how to increase the drop delay so they don’t salvo all at once.

 

Thud is still a great mod and thanks to the VSN team for making it available.  It is even better flying over the Marianas Map.

Wonder why F-15E flyable mod has same number of AA weapon stations as F15C?  Is it possible to increase number of available AA missiles pylons? 

 

No, the F-15E actually only has the same A-A stations as the C, the ones on the body are just moved to the CFT.

Exactly. That is also the reason the F-15EX gained two extra pylons on the wings - for A2A stores.

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.

ola a todos os moderadores e aqui faço um apelo  a cdpkobrae aos seus colaboardores: por favor,  considerem por um instante em fazer um Mod do F8E Cruzader, mesmo com o cockpit do
F-15 ,para que nos possamos utilizar a  transportadora do ED,num cenario dos anos 60.
Ja temos o A-4, o A-6 e ate mesmo o F-105 Thund, faltando mesmo o F8E, para podermos
criar um cenario do cnflito do Vietnam.
Desde 
a agradeço por todos os mod do VSN.

Hello to all moderators and here I appeal to cdpkobra and its collaborators: please consider for a moment making a F8E Cruzader Mod, even with the cockpit of the
F-15, so that we can use the ED carrier, in a 60's scenario.
We already have the A-4, the A-6 and even the F-105 Thund, even missing the F8E, so we can
create a scenario of the Vietnam conflict.
Since
Thank you for all the VSN flyable aircraft mods.
