Reworked Musketeer weapons.properties
« on: February 15, 2019, 03:55:50 AM »

Here it is; weapons.properties - English language only! - reworked by me, following my comment at https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,59368.60.html post #63
and whistlers challenge in #64. Your game will not run smoother / better with this, but you will know whats under your wings for sure.

The main problem with the list is the 45 character box available in the arming screen to see the load-out. Therefore some compromises had to be made in weapon names.
Also I did not added the word 'bombs' due to length of text with some Ju-88 variants, the AU-1 and with 3 or 4 different weapons.
I have not adapted are the Dragonfly's load-outs, as I personally never use these, got in this game for its historicaly right aircraft. What I did was set all variants to:
6x 30kg bombs or lb, SC250, no more SC 250, SC-250 etc.and variants to droptank / droptanks. Something special are the 'Abwurf Behalter' shortened to AB, I set these to
AB ***kg, in fact the correct reading should be: AB 250kg (108x SD2A), also a $ before a load-out are deleted and sequences altered to IMHO more logical one. I added the correct
version of the Lysander and deleted a number of entries for planes not in #WAW3 or double.

The default P-47D's have loadouts with the 1000lb bomb, but show a 500lb bomb; so I have 500lb in the description: what it says you get! The 2x 1000lb is correct in its apearance tough!

The 500lb bomb used in Knochenklutscher's Aboukir Seafire and Spitfire's couldn't be used, this is solved by using the fix supplied. For those who don't want to do this, there's a weapons
file with 'Use Alternative Bombload' included and - if one screws up completely - a default Musketeer weapons file. available.

Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/7m8tc511bzxmhn5/weapons_properties_reworked.rar/file

weapons.properties lives in #WAW3\STD\i18n, drop the folder !BAT_3D_Updates in #WAW3 and that should do the trick.

Further I found some errors I couldn't solve: the Wfr. Gr. 21 does not show in the default Bf-109G10, Bf-110G-2 has no fuselage bomb carrier as does the F2G. 
And there are some abbrevations used: SBC - Small Bomb Container; SM - Schrage Musik; NT - No Tracer; NHA - Not Historically Accurate;
