Shouldn't need a modified meinit for a mass flight, and as long as the server has the right server.lua lines, it will display fine.

Hi guys, I can't follow the problem ...

I know that you'll need to add the text line: common = ".\\Bazar\\World\\VFATF16C.cdds"; in the Config folder > graphics.cfg file.
With this line added, the .cdds file for the f16 skin will be activated to display the F16 and all it's other ( pilot-engine-etc. ) skin files.

About the view position, I'm not a display pilot myself, but does the seat position matter so much ?
You'll just have the standard seat position of the F15 cockpit while flying ... the Mass Formation with a clean Lockon install.

But I know that "Sweeper" uses these settings in his F16 Solo Display, it's installed in his mod:
CockpitLocalPoint[PlaneIndex.iF_15] = {6.45, 0.377, 0.0}

I didn't have to modify the Meinit file, in the mission you'll fly the F15 off the USA, displayed as the F16C.
The fact that it didn't need to be changed is that we won't use smoke, than the pylons would have to be repositioned.

The F16C mod for the mass formation was kept as simple as possible and with a .cdds skins file for max .fps performance ...
My worry is that the cameraman gets the best views, since his capturing will be seen all over the world !!!   Grin

p.s.
Here's the meinit changed, because of the use of smokewinders ... and pylons 1 and 11 do not have the same position on the standard lockon F15 and F16 model by "Crow" on the X and Y-axis.

Cockpit view possition is very important, and I think the values sweeper use is not the correct one for this model. i will get the correct values from 3dsmax when I get home, and then the server can use that file

O.K. didn't know it was that important ... Embarrassed

Perhaps we must warn Frazer about this issue so we know for sure the server gets the right server.lua file !

I have asked "Dutchman" by mail for the server.lua file he used last year with the F16C model, the J-055 "BlingBling".
I hope he still has it ... I think so  Roll Eyes

Hi Wine,

I sent you the server.lua of our old F-16C Mod which should be the same.

server.lua is uploaded on the ftp server.
Seems me & Dutchman, Sweeper, Crow and Diko were doing the same thing at the same time.
But most important,'it worked out fine, the file is there.

THX, everybody for this effort !!!

Or d.l. the server.lua file here: SERVER.LUA

Hi,

first I had to say thank you for that nice Mod Wine.
I flew with you guys the Opening at Friday, but I had a Problem with the Mod. I didn't saw the right Skin.
But now I managed it for next Friday.

So now I can see the Skin and there I have a little request. Can you put some color under the Aircraft? It's just Grey. When we flew over the show center, all people saw us just in Grey.
