This last fix is just excellent ! Now, old skins correctly apply on the Vb.

I have also remarked another little problem :

-for Vb variants, everything is fine for the loadouts,
-but for Vc's and even more for the Seafire II, the central loadouts (bombs or droptanks) look too much forward, with the nose in the filter.

Has anyone else noticed that ?

Hi Zip_Comic1,

Thanks for this Fix, will move it to First Post as far as I have a bit free time.
I'm back at home in the evening, will be out for some urgent work.


Gaston, I installed the versions above with latest Remap Fix given by Zip_Comic1.
I have no Skills, but thought if not in hier.him, Mesh Hook, where's the difference.
I found the CF_D0.msh having a slightly bigger size than OK versions.
Here's how: go to ...3do/Plane/SpitfireMKVc4xHAK(Gb)
make a copy of CF_D0.msh (191 kb!!!) and paste into the affected folders:
Code: [Select]
SeafireMkII50AK(Multi1)
SpitfireMKVc4CWAK(GB)
SpitfireMKVc4CWAK(Multi1)
These should be affected in your install too.
Mates, I'm back at a later point
Best wishes
Tobias

Thank you for all of your hard work on these models. They're really coming along nicely. Version 2.0 is a definite improvement over the previous issue. One thing, though. After I installed Version 2.0 I noticed that model for the Spitfire MkVc2cwAK ended up with the larger oil cooler like the Mk IX under the port wing. I don't know if this was intentional or if I ended up with a glitch in my install. I'm looking forward to the finished product! Well done! ;D

stupid question: does your collated download include all hotfixes?
Title: Re: Spitfire Mk.VB/C with Aboukir Filter
Post by: Knochenlutscher on April 11, 2015, 05:16:11 PM

Installed perfectly into my CUP #WAW - Installed base pack, first added air.ini, then overwrote with the grab'n'go pack

Cheers

Post by: Gaston on April 12, 2015, 09:31:14 AM
Thanks ! Installed everything. Vb skins seem to fit perfectéy. Vc still need improvement.

The problem I mentioned before (centerline loadouts) are still here.
Title: Re: Spitfire Mk.VB/C with Aboukir Filter
Post by: Knochenlutscher on April 12, 2015, 10:51:05 AM
Optional Update
Please find plane/weapon_ru.properties entries at first Post.
The Slipper Tank entry at Seafire has a strange naming, I was unable to cure.
As for the rest it works.

Glad you make use of Grab'nGo and glad it works under Cup.
I'm a bit late on CUP, I plan to move there in Summer, when I have less to work R/L.
Thanks for the props Pete, wishing you happy flying with them

@ Gaston,
be sure to install from this: GrabnGo+Aboukir+v2.7z
Delete previous Mod completely, start fresh and clean & then Grab'nGo Install.
Works here under DBW and Modact 5.30/TFM-412. And there nothing is protruding into Meshes, really.
Try again please and give me a calll? Right?
Cross Fingers  :)

Will see if I can Fix the Original Files, I can't promise...

Kind Regards
Tobias

Is this a patch for version 2, zip ?
Title: Re: Spitfire Mk.VB/C with Aboukir Filter
Post by: Knochenlutscher on April 13, 2015, 12:49:00 PM
Hi Zip_Comic1,
Thanks for your neat work. Didn't had time to test the VCFBs, will test them today.

@ Gaston, ahh, glad sorted it out. Yes, this File you can patch yourself over Grab'nGo version 2.
Nevertheless I'll update too. Grab'nGo v3 is on the way.

Happy Evening
Tobias

Post by: Gaston on April 13, 2015, 01:25:34 PM
OK.

Now, all loadouts seem to have no problem.

Last thing remaining : custom skins do not fit Seafire and Vc's 100 %. Vb's are just perfect.
Title: Re: Spitfire Mk.VB/C with Aboukir Filter
Post by: Knochenlutscher on April 14, 2015, 11:53:07 AM
Hi Gaston, noticed that too at parts of Exhaust stacks wich now
are not seperated but mapped on base Skin.
That's indeed no solution.
Please find Grab'nGo v4 at first Page, install as usual, start clean, don't overwrite...

Kind regards
Tobias

These are really looking good now, gentlemen! I like the new default skins you inlcuded in GrabnGoV4 and the spacing between the centerline bombs and filter is excellent in all models.
   In regards to the Mk Vb skins, here's what I'm experiencing : the mapping is still skewing the camo patterns on the top and port side of the cowling and the exhausts. (Exhausts look great now on the Vc, btw).

Keep up the great work and thanks again for all that you're doing for our community! :)
