Western, you finally resolve the problem of "moving ordenance"??? So Sidewinder could following the moving of the wingtip...Excellent.  8)
 Very quiet question: this also means that we have the possibility to create aircrafts with "moving ordenance", so Tornado, F-111, etc...very quiet question;)

Possible but special "moving" code is needed in each ordnance classfiles, and existing bombs or missiles don't have that code.

AIM-9L used by F/A-18 has the code.
S3 once made it whole of AIM-9L and F/A-18C/D classes. But in some time of developing, F/A-18C/D side code was lost and forgotten.
I've done only recovering his old work, not scratching.

You MUST be using HD, True Color mod

Fine, understood but, why was this particular mod purposely built incapable of loading standard 1mb skins?

You can load also 1MB -- 1024 x 1024 x 256 index colors user custom skins in Paintschemes folder even on this F/A-18 or AV-8B+ mods, with many details are lost.

Default skin and user custom skins are following different rules in stock game.
Only default skin can use 16 million full colors 1024 x 1024 resolution --- 4MB filesize TGA data, not needed to indexing.

BTW this mod uses 2048 x 2048 resolution default skins for detailed lookings and "HD, True Color mod" is necessary regardless you set all custom skins 1MB.

You can open each default skins folders under 3do/plane and 3do/cockpit, decrease resolution all over 1024 x 1024 TGA (TGB) files into 1024 x 1024. They maybe 16MB filesize, decrease to 4MB and save.
Then you can disable "HD, True Color mod" at the expense of much details lost / cockpit texts hard to read.

Nope, I cannot get any 'low-res' PaintSchemes Skin to work with the HD, True Color mod on. I tried with 1mb, 3mb and different bmp settings. Nothing.

Sorry, you are right.

When default skin has 2048 x 2048 size, 1024 or lower resolution custom skins cannot be used.

I think after changing default skins size into 1024 x1024 , custom skins become to be possible 1024 x 1024.

Thanks for confirming western!

I was trying to spare some memory when setting up missions with many F-18s, if that makes any sense?. HD skins look great, but are hardly noticeable from the cockpit when in action.

Click on the controls button on the main menu. Then scroll down to Decrease wing sweep and assign a key to it. then Increase wing sweep and assign a key. Then in game use these two keys to control the nozzles.

1) Read the manual

3) Check you have passed point 2
4) Ask

UPGRADE for your AV-8B  " Harrier II Plus" version ONLY

--- DOWNLOAD --->  http://www.mediafire.com/file/dmni8hbjt4ckajc/MarineAviationPack__Skin_Upgrade_AV-8B.7z


This is a little upgrade to all the skin which make up the mod-aircraft
AV-8B "Harrier II PLus" - It is for the IL2-1946+Mods game versions.


Instructions....

Place the folder from this download named " 3do" into your
folder of the ...  !_US_Marine_Aviation_Pack v3.7
-( or where you keep your mod-airplane of the AV-8B )-

Overwrite the old skins with these new versions.


This will give you new skins for the pilot, ejection seat, interior cockpit +parts (exterior views),
other interior+exterior parts skins, new engine fan (stopped and moving),
and new default skins (1024 x 1024 size).

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Important note - if you wish to keep the original 2048x2048 HD default skins which
are inside your "summer" folder and mod-airplane folder--- Then do not use my versions.


It has been known for some time now that the default skins in the normal size of 1024x1024
make the mod-aircraft work much better in the game and you should only use the
larger HD skins when selecting an extra skin from your Paintschemes folder.

All the default skins and other skins inside the mod-airplane folder should always
be in the normal size of 1024x1024.
It is your game, you decide what to do with it.
If it breaks, its not my fault. You have been warned.


Enjoy your new Harrier II Plus and have a great flight
Cheers
MAX


Some details and colors are not able to be used on this model. There are some parts which share the same colors
and line-details with other parts. So this is the best and closest to the real machine that I am able to
paint at this moment.
Another upgrade may be done in the future to this 3d-model, but until then, we shall wait.
