Ok Sir: Here we go ..
I hope you can follow me and my poor writing..
After downloading DreamK weapons pack I still had NO BOMBS showing. Damn.
So I came back and downloaded the plane for 4.10. Installed it and still NO BOMBS. Crap.

After reading your latest post I went back and looked at the planes folders.
Inside the 4.10 folder there was another folder ( use for DBW1916). At this point I said what the HEY.
I copied what was inside  that folder into the 4.12.2 planes folder. Guess WHAT now I have bombs and
Torps. Thanks Sir: Now we are cooking..

Hello <Gunny>, not quite sure what is going on for you there it seems to be the opposite way around to what I have. :o

The class file you added is actually to make things compatible with the DBW 1916 weapon pack that Istvan added, putting it into a 4.12 might give you bombs, however, you will loose the ability to land the 184 on water using AI as it uses the old 'TypeSailPlane' from 4.10. :D


Do you have both the bomb packs I listed, '0_WW1Bombs_British' and 'Arms_British'?

The link to the second pack I mentioned comes from the 'Vultee-1A thread'.

Note: Links to the weapon packs now added in the post with the download links.


I wonder if I mixed the java up with the uploads. :P :-[  Edit:  Nope, all okay.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

You hold on --I'm thinking I may have got a BAD download.
The file I copied into the 4.12.2 is already there they were the SAME . So some thing is not right.

I will re download and try again... During the down load the first time I had a POP-UP and I shut it down. It wanted to install something other the your plane.. So give me a little time to try again.

Well, <Gunny> seems to have sorted out his issue, if you use the two links provided in the post with the aircraft links you should be good to go. ;)

The other aircraft now have dedicated slots,just need to get the turrets working:











Stay tuned, we are getting there. :D


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello guys, there are going to be six versions:

Short_Type184G           
Short_Type184G2         
Short_Type184M           
Short_Type184M3         
Short_Type184M3b         
Short_Type184R 

Each seen here as statics:



Each has differences of equipment fit, mainly radiators and exhausts, thankfully I can use the existing cockpits
as the view distance is okay so I do not need to fit individual cockpits to show particular parts for each version. ;)

As mentioned earlier turrets are in, now working for the player:






I tried to have the cockpits show the skin selected on the main model but got this Pink effect. :D



I had to return the skin1o Gio put in to rectify this, trouble is if we get a variety of skins you will have to change
the cockpit tga to match if I cannot find a solution. :(

There was a issue with the wings set up in the cockpit folder that I could only rectify by cutting off the
end where the aileron starts, as you can see with the image above the outer section is the main aircraft, Pink
your wing from the cockpit folder.

Test flying revealed there are some parts that require shadows, just as I thought it was ready to upload I find
more work to do, oh well, such is life as they say. :P



Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D
