Harrier in FC2?


Recommended Posts

A question which I ask me since a long time. Why is a Harrier Model hidden in FC2?

 

Will ED make a Harrier Model in the future as a DCS Plane or what is it? I love this Plane. So I dont think ED was modeling this nice Plane and dont use ist.

 

So my question to ED, can you give us some info about the Harrier Model? Why is the Model not activatet in FC2 and why you make this great model and will it be used in the future, maybe as a DCS Version?

If Im not mistaken it was supposed to be an AI aircraft in FC2, but they had some problems getting it to hover, so it was dropped. The model is still there though, and she's a beauty :)

I take my time and make the Harrier work in FC2.... but I'm having some issues:

 

- When the harrier is killed, the pilot ejects, but 3 pilots ejects from the airplane. I changed the number of Crew in "BAE Harrier.lua" (wich originaly reads "2") to "1". But nothing happens

 

Any idea??????

 

 

thanks

Nothing you can do about it as far as I know. The file you edited only changes the Encyclopedia information. Seems like a relatively minor problem in the grand scheme of things.

Well, in that case this is the only problem (plus hasn't damage model), and I just simply like to see this plane at missions... so I'll keep flying as is :pilotfly:

The encyclopedia info is in .txt format and in other directory... so I don't know which is the aim of the "crew" value located in Bae harrier.lua

Is it complicated to make it show up ingame or would it be possible to write a small "harrier-fc2-for-dummies"? :)

If you want I can make a modman package and tell you wich files you have to edit. Just let me know

Let me know if you find out it does otherwise, then.

Not really, because there is a lot of instruction scattered around these forums and elsewhere. You're not a dummy, you just need to take the time to learn for yourself. Get off yer duff and try google searches, forum searches, and looking for mods on LockOnFiles... then report back. ;)

Here is a little "guide":

 

Open file db_countries.lua located in fc2\Scripts\Database and edit with Notepad++ editor.

Search this code e9dd44e3-9aa5-4055-84c4-6bf1d128148b

you will find this:

-- cnt_unit("{e9dd44e3-9aa5-4055-84c4-6bf1d128148b}", "C-130", {

-- color_scheme("{897c8a9d-ce80-49eb-8c98-c5d2e6930347}", "RAF Standart"),

-- }),

 

Delete the slashes and should looks like this:

 

cnt_unit("{e9dd44e3-9aa5-4055-84c4-6bf1d128148b}", "C-130", {

color_scheme("{897c8a9d-ce80-49eb-8c98-c5d2e6930347}", "RAF Standart"),

}),

 

Then when reads "C-130" change to "BAE Harrier"

Should look like this:

 

cnt_unit("{e9dd44e3-9aa5-4055-84c4-6bf1d128148b}", "BAE Harrier", {

color_scheme("{897c8a9d-ce80-49eb-8c98-c5d2e6930347}", "RAF Standart"),

}),

Save and close.-

 

Now open file db_units_planes.lua located in the same folder. Search this:

BAE_Harrier.lua

 

you will find this:

--plane_file("planes\\BAE_Harrier.lua");

 

the same as before, delete slashes:

plane_file("planes\\BAE_Harrier.lua");

 

Now the harrier will appear when you select UK. Remember that is only AI, it is not flyable.

 

PS: If you want you can also download and overwrite the attached file and put into folder fc2\Scripts\Database\planes (first made a back up of the original file). In the attached file the payload is corrected and added drop tanks to increase range.

BAE_Harrier.lua
