hi Rock

any info on the classnames for the new missilebox?

Am particularly interested in the new Opfor weapons you're using.

the plane looks absolutely awesome. i imagine you've spent untold hours coaxing AI to leave the hangar...

In this incarnation there will only be the basic sets in the 1.6 set. OPFOR weapons include:

  • FAB-500 m62 1000lb Bomb
  • KAB500KR 500kg LGB
  • R60 (AA-8 Aphid)
  • R77 (AA-12 Adder)
  • R-27R Vympel (AA-10 Alamo A)
  • R-27T Vympel (AA-10 Alamo B)
  • KH-29T (AS-14 KEDGE)
  • KH-29L (AS-14 KEDGE)
  • B8 Rocket Pod
  • KH-25ML (AS-10 KAREN)
  • KH-25MP (AS-10 KAREN)

All the class names will be available in the online documentation on the website. But Ill PM you an advance list later if you are desperate.

Not seen this new 'brown paint' yet, so until then we'll be sticking with the current dark yellow/tan.

If that's the 'brown' they're talking about, it's been around for a fair while - that photo of the foxhound in the above article is a year old (DVD) and it's the colour we're running at present. The problem is that under various lighting conditions in photos it appears to be everything from more red, yellow, brown and everything inbetween.

I was under the impression that the foxhound was painted "army brown" from the outset? The base colour certainly doesn't match the standard "dark yellow" of other kit.

Week 22 - May 29th 2013 - Apologies and Guess Who #3 < NEW

k so I'm traveling again. More precisely I haven't stopped traveling yet, at this rate I might never stop. I've made it home 9 nights out of 38 so far.

Week 23 - June 7th 2013 - Take a Seat < NEW

So another late one. Jet lag is a full on b!@%ch. I was so tired I walked off the plane and nearly all the way up the jetway still hugging the little pillow they give you sleep with. A rather lovely stewardess had to chase after me and retrieve it. Then a 2 hour schlep through customs, tube journey and another 3 hour train ride home and just as I walk through the door I get turned around and have to go back out again. I think its understandable that nothing much got done after that. I slept 21 hours straight. Well there might have been a few pee breaks...

OK so you want updates. Well this week covers so many active and possible projects that its possibly just too much to take in. The pic kinda gives this one away but Its an ejection seat...

Week 24 - June 12th 2013 - Roll Up! Oh its a Rollup.. < NEW

Some updates just aren't all that visual.

Its been a rather odd week lots of travel, work, socks, unwrapping and textures but not really much I can really show you. Well nothing that interesting anyway. So this week its a quick run down-round up.

Before I go much further I need to say that the Typhoon WILL be released at the end of the month to coincide/support UK Armed Forces Day so sit tight and shut up about it :cool:

Onwards and upwards...

Week 26 - June 27th 2013 - Start Counting Kids < NEW

Saturday the 29th of June is UK Armed Forces Day

It seemed appropriate that since we benefit so much from the contributions of our (all of us are British subjects) Armed Forces that we help raise awareness and celebrate the work they do in our name.

To that end on Saturday the 29th at 15:00 BST we will be releasing not one! But two addons.

1 - Typhoon FGR4 v2.6

2 - Foxhound LPPV by Messiah

If you are a regular visitor to the RKSL Website or BI Forum thread you'll know quite a lot about both the Typhoon and the Foxhound. Well the time has come to release them into the wild!

How compatible these new RKSL addons will be to old (A2) RKSL addons? Better to make "@RKSL_GRUMPYANDOLD" and "@RKSL_THISISSOOOMUCHBETTER" folders? ;) :D

I'm a little bit disorganized again this week. As usual last minute real life issue popped up and time got away from me. I'm sat in my friend's living room nursing a mild hang over and writing the release pages for the Typh and Foxhound right now.

Great news Rock, im looking forward to the release of the Typhoon. I can't wait to create myself a Nogovan Airforce Skin for it :)

Unfortunately I havent had time to finish the tutorial or the texture template in time for today's release. Its going to be wednesday for the Plugin Pack. So I apologise for that all my fault. I've even discovered that i uploaded some of the old plugins by mistake so there will have to be a maintenance update on Wednesday too!

How compatible these new RKSL addons will be to old (A2) RKSL addons? Better to make "@RKSL_GRUMPYANDOLD" and "@RKSL_THISISSOOOMUCHBETTER" folders? ;) :D

OK well, err... as i mentioned in the

the new Flares system will "break" the old ones. So until I can get the Lynx, Puma and Merlin uploaded you might want to keep this in a separate mod folder.

I should have the Helos updated and uploaded by next Saturday at least that is the plan. But we all know what happens with plans don't we boys and girls :)

The Typhoon-ALL-IN-ONE package that will escape at 1500 today (There is a countdown on the RKSL site for those not in the UK timezone) includes everything you need to use it. Air Weapons flares etc. I am planning to just package up every RKSL addon and upload them as a RKSL-Mod-All-In-One once everything is updated.
