AEG C IV & AEG C IVN
« on: January 09, 2017, 12:57:24 AM »

I've been thoroughly enjoying testing all the DOF a/c in Monty's new BAT development...
All are working beautifully except for one ....the   AEG C IV / N
For the life of me I cannot get them into the air  :D
Engine starts as usual, but open up the throttle and there's a slow spooling up to what appears to be half revs  :D
Both me and the AI can only get 5kph out of her on grass runways  :D
Air starts give a speed of 80-100kph  then a gentle glide to earth at about 1m per second  :D
A little research gives the AEG  C IV / N powered by a 160bhp  D III capable of 150kph
The JI, JIa and JII has a similar airframe + Bz IV 200bhp and in game will make 140kph with a pair of spandau's, a becker 20mm, 100kg frag, a full fuel tank, 400kg of armor plating and 2 chubby German's  8)
Is it possible to tweak the C IV from my end....or is it a JAVA thing ?
Any help or direction gratefully received .....

Cheers

Alfie

The fmd of the AEG CIV and the AEG J are almost identical (the weight of the AEG CIV is even smaller than for the AEG J) However the difference is in the engine used - in the AEG CIV this is the Mercedes DIII and the emd of this engine needs apparently to be reworked. This won't impact on other aircraft in game except the Albatros C1 as the Albatros DIII used the DIIa version and teh DV used the DIIau version, which have their own fmd entries.
The most probable entry to change is the weight of the propeller (currently 50kg).

Alfie try that - this must do the job:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/4xmbear6eapo38r/AEGCIV
The size of the prop is now 2.65m and the rpmax 1700 (as in the other versions of Mercedes IIID) instead of 1600 rpm

Dreamk

Many thanks for you lightening quick response !
I've tried replacing and/ or overwriting the AEG C IV file at

DBW1916/ #DBW_1916/ AIRCRAFT_AEG_CIV_AEG_J but I'm getting 60% CTD on both  :(

Is this the correct placing for your fix file ?

Cheers

For the standalone installation in SAS 3.06 modact:
path: #SAS\AEG-CIV_AEG_J
instead of the current file with the same name AEGCIV
Check that you use AutoDiffFM - this fm is compiled in 410 format
