F-14B Cockpit/Model ALPHA Release
« on: November 28, 2014, 12:43:07 PM »
We have released the cockpit of the F-14B to developers in its ALPHA state.

This is to give you the representation of the overall structure and feel, but in no way represents the final build.

The F-14B release will take place in TBD time-frame. Many factors could speed up our process, specifically the amount of feedback received.

Having tested the F-14's pit, here's 2 notices :
- In my opinion, reflections rendering is a little bit too strong on central MFD and on flight gauges.
- Red numbers on the front weapon state panel are unreadable (under normal zoom FOV)

Just letting you know the plane still rolls slowly to the left when Phoenixs are mounted center-line.

Just a note, the AOA indexer and the SWEEP WING indexer should be swapped in position. AOA is on the left and SWEEP to the right.

Very nice work!

There will be an update for the F-14B very soon to include the External Model and its textures, as well as a possible cockpit update at the same time.

Of course, I have modeled the Fuel Tanks, Pylons, and weapons, so all of this will be addressed in the update. Thanks everyone!

I ran into a bit of trouble using the 2.02 install. If you install everything the game will not load. I reverted to try to trouble shoot. I installed each part and ran the game the game. I found that the failure to load the game only happens after installing the copy 3dbuttons. I was able to reproduce in all attempts. I can post a copy of the crash report if you would like as well.

ok thanks. In version 2.02 I added the to the installer the Flight Models.

Try to only update the models and textures and copy the 3dckpit.dat and 3dbuttons.dat to the art/cktpart folder.

Then a=copy the F14.Dat and F14_afm.dat to the acdata folder.

Ill see whats up with the installer, thanks.

Noticed something else as well. Your view with NODs is locked to center of the pit. Everything works normally until you switch  the NODs on.

My issues with hdv3 led me to isolate the issue with the NVGs. It appears to multi-sampling related. With multi-sampling on I get 20 degrees of movement, with multi-sampling off it works normal. I seems to effect the F-14, F-15, and F-5. The F-22 worked normally with multi on or off.

Good to know.

As it is now useful info, All models were tested with multi-sampling off. The GFX cards themselves do this and is not required for BMS to software hack the multi-sampling.

Hey guys, I love what you have created so far, but I have been unable to get the cockpit to work.

Are you still actively working on this?  It looks fantastic, and it would be such a waste otherwise.

I know a fair few people who would be very interested in your fine work.

Hello Wavehopper,

We are very much still developing, short break but back on it in less than a week.

We will complete the final version 1 for release soon for carrier integration with the F-18, and F-35.

Also working on the carrier versions of Mig/Sukhoi/Chengdu fighters.

Thanks for the compliments!

Hello,

I have been playing with your files and trying to load them into BMS 4.33 with LOD Editor without any luck. Can this mod be used with 4.33? If so, are there any instructions you can send.

Thanks much for your work on these fantastic models!

Hello,

We are in the process of getting the models compatible with 4.33, starting with the F-14 here is an update.







We are sorry for this inconvenience as the latest build of 4.33 changed some small details.

Kind Regards
