v6: 5/19/2018:

  • Reworked weapons loadouts to use the Dynamic Loadouts.
  • New (and improved!) weapons and models including AGM-88 HARM, SNEB 68mm rockets, BL-755 CBU, high-drag Mk82, IRIS-T, and many more
  • Extended-range ARM script remain available for BVR Wild Weasel missions
  • Expanded CUP factions to include RACS, SLA (and vanilla BIS). Some CUP factions do not yet have pilots; default soldiers are used as placeholders.
  • Expanded paint selections (selectable in the Virtual Garage and via BIS Vehicle Customization commands)
  • Improved drop tanks / siphon tanks scripts. Tanks provide additional fuel, and alter plane Mass when dropped. Useful for better dogfighting behavior.
  • Expanded Field Manual section
  • New missile jamming script (based on my SAM PACK jamming scripts) that utilizes the Towed Radar Decoy.  The TRD can now only be used 6x per mission to throttle the behavior and avoid "magic missile shield" behavior - use the TRD wisely! 🙂
  • Added improved cockpit textures by Pinaz
  • Added USAF and pook_SOVAF basket refuel compatibility!
  • Fixed some minor 3D model issues and reversed textures

 

 

 

Previous version updates:

Spoiler

 

Previous:

=======

- FIX:  Corrected shadow bug on distance lods
 - FIX:  Corrected memory point configuration to allow compatibility with both Sabre's C-130 aerial refueling system AND Fuller's USAF mod refuel system.
 - FIX:  Corrected missing ARM missile launch actions for POOK_SAM Anti-Radiation Missile (ARM) weapons.  Actions assume a POOK_SAM ARM missile is equipped and will error if an ARM weapon is not equipped.  This was added in anticipation of SEAD weapons via RangeMaster.
 - NEW:  Bump mapping layers - NOHQ, SMDI, and AS layers.  Experimental and intended to be further developed in future updates.
 - NEW:  Random camo textures.  Some factions (Germany, BAF) use standard Grey patterns.  CUP-specific factions rely on a new random paint scheme, governed by the faction's primary region.  Therefore CDF West will spawn mostly Forest-centric patterns; CDF Independent will spawn mostly Jungle-centric patterns; TAK will spawn mostly Desert-centric patterns, etc.  There are Grey, Forest, Jungle, and Desert groups of 20 each mix of patterns.

 

v1.3: 2/1/2016:
 - FIX:  SCALP (Storm Shadow) foggy decals.
 - IMPROVED: added new draconicForce values for better handling
 - IMPROVED: changed acceleration from 300 to 475
 - IMPROVED: Better CDF, TAK, RAF roundels (by Pinaz93).  Original TAK flag roundel is renamed "roundel_TAKflag.paa" for those who wish to retain its use
 - NEW: Improved base texture, new CDF AF texture, and new TAK AF textures (by Pinaz93)
 - NEW: Brimstone Dual-Mode (laser + radar) missile.  New magazines for the Brimstone launcher weapon: 
 - - EF2K_BrimstoneDM_mag18x
 - - EF2K_BrimstoneDM_mag12x
 - - EF2K_BrimstoneDM_mag6x
 - - EF2K_BrimstoneDM_mag4x
 - - EF2K_BrimstoneDM_mag2x
 

v1.2: 1/28/2016:

- FIX:  Cloudy texture issues
v1.1: 1/28/2016:
 - FIX: Changed burst name to avoid conflicts w/ other mods
 - FIX: Removed missing sound references, now relies on default BIS vanilla sounds
 - NEW: Better skin texture built by pinaz93

 

v1.0: 1/26/2016: INITIAL A3 RELEASE

 

 

 

 

 

FEATURES

 

 

Detailed Textures

Decal overlays to allow real details instead of "red smudge" textures.  Detail decals also on the new weapons (and fuel tanks)

decals.jpg

 

Ejection Seat

I built it with the idea that mission makers could add a "document" item to the seat to simulate Behind Enemy Lines data disk retrieval scenarios.

seat.jpg

 

Formation Lights

Action-enabled.  INIT check will automatically turn on lights if spawned during night time hours.

Articulated Surfaces

Surfaces on the real plane are pre-set by the onboard computer at different speeds.  This feature is modeled in the addon and you can visually notice the changes at different speeds.  Some features like the nosecone can be articulated on the tarmac, allowing mission makers to simulate "under repair" planes 🙂

Drogue Chute

Fully articulated deployable chute.

TRD - Towed Radar Decoy

The TURD!  🙂

 

The TRD provides "active spoofing" countermeasures against incoming enemy missiles.  Jamming script simulates real life towed decoy EW capabilities.  The TRD is an action-deployed item.  It provides the pilot some defense against missiles (such as my POOK_SAM pack) for better surviveability.

PULLUP indicator, RWR, and MFD TV

Bitching Betty "pullup" sounds and the big "X" overlay.  MFD TV is pointed downward at about 30 degrees.  One can somewhat rely on the display for dumb bomb runs.  WORKING RWR display!  The list of recognized SAM's will cause the RWR to illuminate the "type" indicator.  Any unidentified SAM will be illuminated as "S".  Complete details are found in the guide.

 

pullup1.jpg

 

rwr1.jpg

 

Dynamic loadouts

Uses new Jets DLC loadout selector, and several mission-specific selections.

 

Now provides Vanilla faction support as well as CUP support (via separate download).  Additional factions may be added in the future.

ENGINE NOISES:  I have copied the CUP sounds so as to vary the engine noises from the default sounds.  That being said, I can hear engine noises perfectly when running this w/ CUP.

 

Those w/o engine noises, can you specify what mods you're running?  Perhaps there's a conflict somewhere.  It would be easy enough to remove the class Sounds section and fall back to the default A3 sounds...

 

 

 

I see its signed, but where do i find the server-key ?

 

On OFPEC, of course!  :)

I figured out why sounds don't work for me.

 

21:18:24 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\int\int-av8b-engine.wss'
21:18:24 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\int\int-jetair-wind1.wss'
21:18:24 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\int\int-av8b-forsage-1.wss'
21:18:27 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\ext\ext-jetair-engine-high3.wss'
21:18:27 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\ext\ext-jetair-wind1.wss'
21:18:27 Audio Stream: Cannot load sound 'cup\airvehicles\cup_airvehicles_av8b\sounds\ext\ext-jetair-forsage1.wss'

 

The AV-8B folder was replaced with a different version, from next CUP stable patch all these sounds will be removed.

I suggest you replace them with the ones from one of the vanilla planes.

OFPEC is the editing centre a resource for all things OFP/Arma editing. Its where an initiative was created for addon makers to have tags and keys stored. This was started in OFP times.

 

For example all my addons are prefixed rki_, whereas hcpookie are prefixed POOK_ . Keys can be found on this page: (http://www.ofpec.com/tags/index.php?action=keys)

I made a little work on the textures, I have to remake the bottom panels, fix some of the top panels (under the canopy looks horrible) and find where some other things are on the texture (the right position of the tail and the black part around the canopy) but it's already looking good ;)

Hcpookie I can send you the textures to use them as base texture when I have finished, let me know if you want!

YES I left the "test" model in the config (my mistake!) so the "real" CAP version has weapons, but the "test" version (named CAP also!!!) has no weapons.  I will remove that from the config!

Understood and done!  I'll compile and upload a new version this evening!

I'll also include the server key :)
