  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Yes. I did some consulting for it back in the day. Been a while since i ran the game up though.
  5. 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
  6. Thanks. New version was pushed earlier. V3.068 - FIXED Physx for Roadways - FIXED missing shadow from RH side step. - FIXED Copilot not being able to deploy floats in MP - CHANGED Rear door user action control position - TWEAKED Pylon values (Thanks Tetet) - TWEAKED Cabin Light Values - REMOVED EO Turret Search light option - REMOVED Option to control Aircrew doors in Eden (Possibly temp)
  7. 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.

  8. No, not the same thing. The community towing solutions are only a work around. We are talking about more than just tow ropes. With a proper physX setup we are talking about proper articulated vehicles. The ability to hook up trailers and tow at speed without lag and massive rubber banding. This was a feature in VBS 1.22 in 2009. Why not now?
  9. I'll upvote this too.👆 (Before i say anything else; Yes I know VBS is now different than the current ArmA/RV game engine) VBS2 1.22 way back in 2009 had physx support for towing. Its 2019 and we still don't have a full PhysX implementation in ArmA. Why not? Why has it never been implemented? For those that dont realise the possibilities: Walking on moving vehicles. Towing Realistic damage Realistic object interactions/collisions (ie no more flying tanks) Arguably improved performance And far more.
  10. VERSION 3.002 - Released CHANGE LOG 3002 - Fixes and Additions FIXED - Cargo and Crew now vulnerable. ADDED - Can now toggle all animations via the Attributes panel in EDEN. ADDED - New Skins. Generic Grey, Camo & Civ Yellow CHANGED - AI now can control the ramp. CHANGED -- Debeach conditions relaxed.
  11. New version uploaded: 3.001 - Bug Fix Release FIXED :Glass lens on Folding mast do not fold. REMOVED :External dependency to Foxhound LPPV CHANGED :De-Beach script activation is too restrictive
  12. Errors 1 & 2 are now fixed the update will be pushed in the morning. Error 3 - Debeaching. The reason its locked down so tightly was to make it a last resort kind of thing. Also to prevent cheating/griefing with it. The first few versions were limited to >5kph and eventually 1kph. Hemorrhoid found a way to cause havoc in the Welldeck of Albion. hence why you have to be static. Which LPD are you clashing on?

    I am working on a new Puma series base model that will allow me to create different versions and grow into Super Pumas, Cougars and Caracals etc Its just taking longer because i dont have much free time.
  14. Trust me its needed. No one in testing had got a 0 Fail rate. Everyone beached it atleast once or twice.

External dependency to Foxhound LPPV De-Beach script activation is too restrictive 3.000 - PUBLIC RELEASE FINDING THE ADDON IN THE EDITOR You can find the Objects under: UK Armed Forces > Boats ADDON FEATURES 3x Decal options switchable in EDEN Attributes: Royal Navy, Royal Marines Generic - As requested by several Dutch Community members OPFOR Camo Ind Generic Grey Blufor Generic Grey Civ Yellow NV/Thermal Obs camera in Commander's turret 2x Firing-From-Vehicles Turrets (Personnel Version only). Option to open/close covers in EDEN attributes (Personnel Version only). ViV can transport vehicles upto 12,000kg De-Beaching Option - You will inevitably beach this at some point. If you don't have another vehicle to push it back this will save you. In the Driver's position at 0Kph you will see an option appear "De-beach" - this gives you a short shove backwards. Repeat as necessary until you are afloat again. PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE Improved and More structured damage. Fixed gun mounts on the fore deck. Several other skins. A WORD ABOUT REALISM AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow. We all know that ArmA has some interesting moments with PhysX while we have tried to limit these without compromising the addon... things just happen sometimes. Do let us know. But also accept that we may not be able to fix everything.

We do not replace core values or modify anything that will affect the function or experience of others. We are happy to discuss optional compatibility patches, but will not exclusively adapt our addons to anyone else's Mod standards.

Please use the Bug Tracker below: LCVP MK5 Bug Tracker KNOWN ISSUES AT RELEASE - See the bug tracker for details Water vapour flows above the deck occasionally Vehicles loaded in cargo in the ViV version don't render correctly when in passenger slot.
