These helicopters have modular engine intake configurations.

Top refers to original intake above the engine without the particle separators.

The side textures are intended for airframes fitted with particle separators for operations in dusty environments.

Re: Coast issues

Miljan It is quite easy when you know how. The tutorial on creating an island works ok. Create a land mask. Your need then to add landclass by clicking on the intersections of the grid LOD 13. Wide around it as it does not always cover. It will only fill your land mask. To move the coastline use the...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

I have re-compiled the previously uploaded models. This time they have lightmaps activated. In certain packages extra loadouts have been included using the available model source files. This includes loadouts for Finnish, Spanish and Swiss F-18's. Other model sets may or may not represent real world...

Chinook Models Uploaded.

Updated FA-18 A,B,C and D package uploaded. Previously omitted models now included.

F-18 Wet models, only the models, are ready to be tested. Anyone wanting to test the models can send me a message. I will send a link for download.

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

The following image shows an updated Chinook model further away than the original. Not quite as dramatic as my first observation made me believe. Nevertheless there is an improvement. I have now had a look at the A400's. I do not believe that any benefit will be gained by changing the LOD's. Bear in...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

Asdro I have updated the Chinooks. As for the A400's I have not requested the source files as yet. John, the visual change on the Chinooks, viewed in high resolution is quite dramatic. Turns from a plywood mock-up to a relatively accurate helicopter. The model however is quite basic. If you are inte...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

For the carrier enthusiasts out there.

Nicks F-18 folding wing models do work. I have managed to get Sidewinders onto the wingtips of the E version, so with careful deleting I can make the other loadouts.

Dry models are done.

Working on Apache and Chinook now.

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

Chris it nearly went that way. I had a singleton paint for 151 with 2016 design on the tail. Modified models went into this folder. I kept them separate so that I could compare how they displayed in the sim. Then I realized the design on the tail was out of date. This design seemed easy enough to do...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

I have the source files. I have not been able to get the folding wings to work yet. FSDS is still strange to me and not my first priority to learn. Making changes to the models was not my intention. At the moment it is limited to changing the LOD tags and compiling the models. These F-18's have been...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

Subsequent to my previous post, I removed another LOD model from the Rafale and renamed the remaining LOD's to lower values. So in total, two of the original removed. I discovered that FSDS does in fact use your values, provided they have a gradual progression. Visually I could see no real benefit f...

Re: NBAI Model LOD Modifications

Until the architecture of the simulator changes there will be a need for some way for the model not to load when out of visual range. In FS9 the lower LOD value model provides the shadow. The trick for efficient AI would be to make the complete transition before it comes into view close enough to se...
