Flying Legends (WIP)

yep, affects engine management. It is not widely advertised since it is likely to be a temporary solution till all aircraft are updated to handle engine management.

So does that mean that not having that mode enabled will just make the planes behave like before without any of the special scripted behaviour?

- added engine management pro pilot mode (P-51D and FW190A)

- minor tweaks to P-51D interior and exterior (gauges, radiator)

- added cowl flaps animation for Ju88A

- added a few more mags for Ju88 Front Gunner

- content vaulted Ju86 and P-51B/C

- fixed axis fuel tank smdi

- fixed Bf109F/G canopy opening (thanks Belgerot)

- engine management changes (values, limiter)

Content vault means content is currently removed, may come back at a later time again.

The content vault concept is kind of fun (at least here)

It is going to be expanded to other parts of the mod:

 

A99B3246EE168A1AC163A0E3190D5A4ED702E050

 

There are so many P-51 liveries for instance which would simply bloat the mod.

There are no plans to make more dedicated livery mods either.

So every now and then some liveries will be swapped out, some others will be swapped in.

Idea is to have 2 or maximum 3 liveries being available at the same time.

Same for the other aircraft, where this was done already to some extent.


If the model and uv map are changed (which happens, just did because of the belly radiator)

-it is easier to fix 2 liveries instead of 15 + a few livery mods.

Now that the mod is a little more lightweight there is time to focus on some more details.

 

Today - Fw 190 fuselage:

It is a bit too roundish overall and dimensions were all over the place.

Never really gave it an update like the P-51 got.

Basically it was the same secret weapons model with a slightly better uv layout.

Improved topology a little (very easy using knife tool and dissolve edges).

Apart from looking nice that makes it easier to work on the model.

Fixed the engine cowling dimension issues and made the fuselage shape look more triangular.

 

Not that I am aware of anyone ever making a texture for this aeroplane...

Anyway should not affect UV Map/Texture too much as I projected it all into the same place again, more or less.

Nice to see the 190 is getting an update, I've made a few textures using the template provided:

Nothing too extreme, just added a few markings and moved others about but it will be interesting to see how it will look come the updated model.

Looking good. And glad some players actually make reskins. At least to me that is the highest level of praise if people spend their time on a mod this way.

(Not sure if the decals are ok to use on the forums though. In some countries, especially in europe, they are banned from use in entertainment and games.

That is why the mod uses a generic replacement so it works for players from any country...

- Thanks for updating!)

 

It will take another week or two. Not finished yet. It looks like there may be some slight adjustment necessary for the fuselage area.

All in all perhaps 5 minutes to update the livery.

Belly region changed slightly, old texture may need tiny adjustments

Mapping moved upwards slightly, might need small re-arrangement

Nice work.

Currently I am updating some of the interiors and fixing some things under the hood (should not affect any sub/retexture mods much).

Updated Bf 109 E interior, ETC Rack

Dauntless redesign wip

 

Also playing with the idea to update the F4U, Dauntless and A6M and add into this mod. May or may not happen.

I hope Japanese aircraft make it into this mod because the lack of pacific war content is disappointing. The secret weapons aircraft gave me a lot more flexibility to my scenarios and I hope you continue work on this mod in general. Your mods gave me reason to step back into a ww2 timeframe because of the quality content you are producing, try not to burn yourself out of course. Keep up the Fantastic Work!

Hurricane

Mk.IID

 

edit:

Next update will be a major step. While it won't add any new vehicles it changes most of them. Noticable differences will be the modified interiors and changes to loadout options.

 

Most changes will be under the hood though. Since there are a couple other versions of these aircraft worked on in parallel (non public, personal use only) - file conflicts during development were frequent. It was necessary to change nomenclature of all internal files to make them unique. Basically every file except config and model.cfg now uses an appropriate prefix which eliminates risk of overwriting with the wrong version.  Instead of using a generic filename such as glass.rvmat the unambiguous sab_fl_p51d_glass.rvmat will be used in future in case of the P-51 for instance.

 

None of this should matter to anyone simply using the mod (classnames are not affected).

In conflict with a previous statement it may affect retexture mods depending how they are set up though. For instance if textures or material paths of the mod are linked:  p51d_smdi will have to be changed to sab_fl_p51d_smdi, p51d.rvmat to sab_fl_p51d.rvmat and so on. This is true for all aircraft in the mod.

 

Release is planned for sometime this weekend

Looking really nice Sab well done. 👍

 

Hey Sab, I remember a while ago you had a Douglas dolphin in one of your mods ? it was the closet model to a PBY Catalina, will that (dolphin) ever re appear in the future ?

 

Thank you.

There is a list of planned items in 2nd post. No plans beyond.

Float/Seaplanes have never really worked well in Arma and seem to work worse any time I test.

There were plans for a fictional Float Hurricane and the float Zero as well as a Martin PBM but does not look like this will happen.
