moght be 308 yeah, i typed too quick.

 

you might have to add arg value for the rest of the tip loadouts to say arg value 0.0

 

Im in my office so I cant test, I also dont have a shape, other then SuperHornetWingtip Pods to test with.

 

Might also have to decrease the drag coefficient, as its for a 480 gal size tank and not a 50 gal wing tip, the drag coeff from the Su-27 ECM tip pods would prolly work better.

 

I'll post a revised code in a lil bit.

I need time to clean up some code, because I need a separate EDM for Left/Right Tanks.

I'd assume cosmetic only as the Pylons in the PFM and PSM are not modelled to transfer fuel.

I hope you can upload a copy of your F-5E.lua file, did six trials, adding and replacing your text lines, but I still seem to mess it up. ( I'm not an .lua expert but know you can make mistakes quickly and make the file useless )

DCS won't start up when I install my edited file ...

 

Thanks anyway for your ultra fast work on this SkateZilla !

Great work! You could probably make them work (sort of)

1. add drag/weight to new wingtip tanks. 2. Modify or make new tank (with same fuel capacity) for the center or inner pylons. Make them invisible and loose the drag. You will sacrify some payload doing this.

Worked out fine for me, try this JGSME version i made. It only works with the US f-5 SouthEast Asia skin. And whatever numbers i change in the position i cannot move the tanks? Am i missing something?

Thx for the work SkateZilla

I will resolve the tank positioning within the source 3d file before exporting,

Hopefully tonight or tomorrow, depends on how hot it is

 

its a Lose / Lose Scenario for a month or so in the summer,

HOT w/ AC ON = Constant Power Outages in my Area due to power draw overloads from everyone's AC Units,

 

Hot with AC OFF = Unable to Push System too hard to avoid any overheating on the GPUs and Harddisks

07/10/2017: NOTE, FOR DCS WORLD 2.1, I NEED TO ADJUST TEXTURES and RE-EXPORT, PLEASE STAND BY

 

*Revised on 10/04/16 To Remove A Step*

Attached is a New .RAR w/ the EDM Files, DDS Files, PSD File, and Instructions are Below:

 

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

 

 

Modify the F-5E.lua in NOTEPAD++

(Revised on 10/04/2016)

Under Local TIPs, Add:

{ CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}", arg = 308, arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =7, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank
{ CLSID = "{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-R}", arg = 314, arg_value = 1.0, required ={{station =1, loadout={"{PTB_50_F5A_AUXTANK-L}"}}}},            -- Wingtip 50 GAL Tank

 

 

Add Loadout Declarations to the Bottom of F-5E.lua, Below the make-tiger() Line:

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:

{"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/
