Title: Bristol Bulldog II and IV Ready to DL - update 25/8/12 [4.10] [4.11] [4.12]
Post by: Dreamk on August 25, 2012, 05:01:06 PM
A busy summer - Agracier is on leave in Spain  8) and I've been busy with RL work :-\ , so no real "heavy modding" but, with the help of Archie and Epervier, a few "small things"  ;) mainly upgrading some of the planes I've uploaded these last months - some are minor upgrades, others...well let's keep you waiting still a few days  :D
Oh yes, One of the things I did was to upgrade/ create various bomb packs that were seriously lacking in this sim. ::)
So let's begin with The Bristol Bulldog II and IVA - a new version with a radial engine and skis when you chose to take off from a winter snowy map

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img684/6938/bulldogmercuryskis1.gif)


To fly this planes, you''ll need to download the full new Spanish, British and Finnish Bomb packs - well they contain a little more than what the Bulldogs carry, but I have somehow a feeling that the rest will become useful in the coming days  ;D
(It's recommanded to completely remove the former Spanish Arms folder and to copy the new one instead)
If you have already installed the BulldogII, the best is also to remove it and drop the new folder instead

I love these birds, abselout joy, same with the wildbeest.
 The pit from gladiator fit right in. However I got a question, I dogfighted with russian doubledeckers with skis on and found it very very very manouverable, the engine does not cut in negative G so I stoped and chacked my difficultlevel, thinking my kids had put them on easy  :-\
I know very little but I wonder if maby the fm is a little too easy on these  :-[
I do not want to offend you or give critics, I love these birds of yours, and I know your very educated on these birds

This is a good question - though the Bulldog was indeed reputed to eb very nimble and succeeded to score a number of victories in the WInter war, but it worths checking further. FM for these planes are rather problematic as we have mainly info about the engines and not so much about the plane itself. If for ww1 and the 20s this was the only important thing conditionnng teh FM, in the 30s, they began to experiment with aerodynamism and the planes were no longer, in all cases, "engines with wings" (though some were still only that)

Downloaded and installed no problem, thank you very much for the update Dreamk, superb. 8)

I've removed the previous thread so there is no confusion as to which version should be used, hope you don't mind. ;)

Just a small critique from someone who has a particular interest in the Finnish Air Force, the insignia on certain areas of the skins are facing the wrong way. ;)

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello!

I noticed that none of the previous Bulldog 3D fixes are included in this new version. Thus, I attached updated version of my fix pack before there are too many bug reports.

It includes these fixes:
- Direction and shape of damaged CF fixed.
- Damaged ailerons are now Bulldog ones.
- Damaged Bulldog IV nose is now Bulldog IV nose instead of Bulldog II nose.
- Wheels now rotate to correct direction.
- Prop 3D is centered better and flipped around so that it matches pictures and engine turning direction.
- Pilot is centered in cockpit.
- Ailerons are now attached to upper wingtips so that they won't float in air anymore when upper wingtips are lost.

Just a little observation:

The second line in plane_ru.properties should be: "Bulldog_IV     Bulldog IV, 1936" not "Bulldog_IV     Bulldog II, 1936"

Which version of DiffFM are you using.

I have HSFX6.0.17 with AutoDiffFm for HSFX6 http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,27392.0.html --- but I just get CTD at 70% with the Bulldog

Thanks. Got it working using that version but I had to create a new "clean" MODS folder within HSFX6 to load it into. Must be a clash with an existing added mod. Just need to port all the rest of the stuff over now to find out what was causing the problem.
Title: FM update
Post by: Birdman on April 09, 2013, 06:28:18 AM
I updated the flight models of these Bulldogs to get more realistic speeds and engine RPM. Bulldog II now has the non-supercharged engine used in SCW, so she has good performance at low altitude. Bulldog IV has supercharged engine with optimal performance at 3-5 km altitude but not as good at sea level due to prop pitch adjusted for speed at higher altitudes. I also fixed Bulldog IV exhaust effect hooks.

I hope you like this update. Remember also my earlier fix pack http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,28107.msg296550.html#msg296550 if you haven't installed it yet.

Tested with partial success in 412.1:

Plane load and fly flawless , small issue in rear view due missing fuselage , gunsight misaligned (due 412.1 different POW I presume) , tracers don't shown on gunsight or internal view but only in external....
