Nick's Exhaust on UI Aircraft?
« on: March 28, 2008, 03:21:10 AM »
Can you use Nick's Exhaust on UI aircraft?  I like to fly Russian metal from time to time, and I like to fly the IL-76TD from Varnavskiy Sergey, but it does not seem right without exhaust.  What would I add into the aircraft.cfg entries to get the exhaust?  Or is there another addon for UI aircraft?

I've been flying this IL-76TD through Antarctica the past few days and I need to work my way north so that I can see the B752 in action.

[GeneralEngineData]
engine_type=1
Engine.0=-1.388, -33.910, -3.000
Engine.1=5.217, -18.660, -2.000
Engine.2=5.217,  18.660, -2.000
Engine.3=-1.388,  33.910, -3.000
fuel_flow_scalar=1.08
min_throttle_limit=-0.159912

[liGHTS]
light.0 = 3, -17.8,-81.0, 12.0,  fx_navredh
light.1 = 3, -17.8, 81.0, 12.0,  fx_navgreh
light.2 = 1,  18.2,  1.9, 19.34, fx_beaconb
light.3 = 1, -46.0,  0.0,  5.3,  fx_beaconh
light.4 = 3, -71.8,  0.0, 15.2,  fx_navwhih
light.5 = 4,  54.0,  0.0, 14.0,  fx_vclighth
light.6 = 4,  55.0,  0.0,  7.0,  fx_vclighth
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

hello mate

you could try

light.7 = 2, -1.388, -33.910, -3.000, fx_nicksmokeXXX
light.8 = 2, 5.217, -18.660, -2.000, fx_nicksmokeXXX
light.9 = 2, 5.217,  18.660, -2.000, fx_nicksmokeXXX
light.10 = 2, -1.388,  33.910, -3.000, fx_nicksmokeXXX

you might want to experiment with the various FX files nick has done some for UI as well as AI which seem to be a little more dense, also there is a chance the engines won't line up properly, some models engine data isn't quite right. you might want to play around with the first number after the = as this controls which light the effect is controlled by.

hope this works, i've never tried on a grown up model 8)

Jim,

Thanks for the codes, it looks nice.  But what is the code that I need to edit to raise the exhaust up?  It is about 2-3 feet below the engines now.

hello mate

try the last numbers before the fx (-3.00) and change them to -1 or 0, and see how they look ;)
