Major update to PZL P.11c
« on: January 18, 2012, 02:50:35 AM »

This is a major update to the P.11c Polish fighter.  It adds a range of improvements, corrections and new features, and incorporates all previously published updates.  I think, it offers a better feel of this aircraft by removing the annoying primitive look of the original model.  Not everything is historically exact but much closer to reality than before.  For those interested in flying over Polish skies in 1939 it should offer more realistic experience.

Other than corrections and improvements there are, as usual in my projects, some experimental features.
There is a rain animation on the windshield, when actually flying in the rain. It uses animated textures, rather simplified but giving a reasonable impression.
There is a changed timing of the engine start up (no general classes have been modified).
There is also, more for fun, an animation of the pilot coming in and out of the cockpit. Two versions are included - discrete time steps and interpolated.
There is an emulation of the residual fluorescence of instrument legends and compass light. A bit of a guess here as I did not find sufficient info on the Polish Gerlach gauges.
Details in the P11c_Readme.txt file.

This project remains a kind of WIP, more stuff can be added in the future.

    some cockpit textures : Tyrl

I was enthralled by the P11c when i first bought the game many years ago ... any improvements are more than welcome ... many thanks.

Just flew the plane a few times and it looks ever so much better. Especially the cockpit ... now the cockpit is up to par with other Il-2 planes ... and the extra armament of 4 guns is also very welcome ...

You've done a fine job.

I'm a little bit confused now - what exactly should I put (and where) just to update my current P-11c stockplane (DBW 1.6)?
Kumpel - thank You for Your work, really needed update of polish legend.
Bardzo Dziekuje.

Unzip the downloaded rar file. Inside are three folders.
Place the folder called 'AA_P11c_PS' into your #DBW folder, and add the line
PZL_P_11c         air.P_11CPL 1                                 pl01  SUMMER
to your air ini ...

If you have DBW installed then you do not need the Diff_FM mod. The skins you put in your respective skin folders for the various P11 variants ...

Presumably the same method works for a UP3 install, just use the folder appropriate for containing mods instead of #DBW ... #SAS I believe is the name?

Thx Agracier, actually I just wondering why should I put additionial air. ini lines - we have p11c existing in game?
Thought that Kumpel's folder will use existing air.ini lines...

You get an extra aircraft, another P11 variant in this mod ... so not only is the original P11c updated, but you get a new second P11 variant as well. That is why the extra line is included. Compare both air.ini lines to each other and you'll see they differ.

PZL_P_11c         air.P_11CPL 1                                 pl01  SUMMER
P_11c             air.P_11C 1                                   pl01  SUMMER

Remember, that it takes considerably longer to create a mod than a pretty screen shot

I installed this mod, put the lines on the correct places. when i go to the QMB, the "new" P.11C works fine, but the old one doesn't show on QMB when i select the plane. Any tips on how to solve it?
