RELEASED - RKSL Studios: AW159 Wildcat

Recommended Posts

RKSL Studios presents our BETA of the AW159 Wildcat HMA2

This is a BETA and does not represent the final version.

This addon WILL change and EVOLVE. There is no guarantee class names will stay the same and performance and features may change between versions.

You need to understand:

- This BETA (3.065) is approx 2 versions behind the current internal build. 
- Internal textures not final
- MFD system/setup is NOT Final
- No guns in this version - next update...should be...
- Torpedoes disabled - not working ingame
- Depth charges disabled - not working ingame
- Loadouts are going to change.
- No wreck model

Why release an older beta?
Its my Birthday and Internally we've reached an impasse. I'm asking for a fresh look for issues. Specifically I want feedback on:

  • Basic Flight Model
  • Advanced Flight Model
  • Weapons performance
  • Radar & Sensors


PLEASE NOTE: Please see the Change Log.

V3070Wildcatbanner.jpg

V3.070 - Fix for the Fix

- FIXED - Floats issue caused by the PhysX fix in 3.069
- CHANGED - AFM - Increased Ir, Ib & maxBrakeTorque Values
- CHANGED - Geo LoD to tweak damage
- ADDED - Materials to Fire Geo.

Honestly there are about 30 other things tweaked changed and poked to.

 

Still lots to do, I was hoping to push the Version with Door guns today but the V3.070 put me 4 days behind my plan and its going to be delayed.  I have a busy few weeks ahead and it may be a little time before I can get it out.  Sorry if that disappoints anyone.  But real life wins everytime.

Rock,

Nice work as usual.Thank you.

Have you flown in TKOH?

Yes.  I did some consulting for it back in the day.  Been a while since i ran the game up though.

If someone wants to give me the RotorLIB SDk sure. 😉

 

Without it calculating some of the values is neigh on impossible.  I sat down and tried for 4 months to decipher the XML values and reverse engineer it.  Either my math was wrong (very possible) or i was missing something.  Talking to others after the fact I'm definitely missing info.

lol yeah go for it.

 

There is a mathcad plugin for it and I believe a standalone toolkit.  Hell right now I'd just love to get my hands on the manuals with diagrams.

Well I'd say I have a handle on about 60% of the XML.  I have a list of variables and their meaning.  I even have some of the formulas in spreadsheets to help calculate the values.  What I really need help with is an explanation of how each variable affects behaviour in the simulation.  I say this because, previously I've enlisted the help of far more knowledgeable people than myself to help reverse engineer the values in stock configs.  In this case my old University lecturer in Aerodynamics at UWE ex of Rolls Royce and BAe.  And one of the design engineers that worked on the BERP rotors for Westland Helicopters.  Even they couldn't arrive at the same values as is in the configs.  And when we used the 'real life' values they gave me the helicopter was virtually unflyable.  With so little documentation it's hard to understand the effect tweaking one value has on another.  Right now its pick a class of helo and tweak - test - tweak - test rinse and repeat until satisfied. Laborious to say the least.
