If anyone is interested,this beast drops right into SAS game structure.It uses the P-63 FM.

MOD J7W1 by Kodama posted on AAS at:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Basicaly,you all have been flying P63 until now...this is my interpretation of this plane's fm,for those that want to try it.

(http://storebror.it.cx/sas/archive/sas2/EnsignRo/Pic/shinden1.jpg)

So,according to IL2,Shinden needs long runways,has medium acceleration and it's a bit tricky in tight turns.It has good climb,0-6000m time should be around 6min (estimate,didn't actualy measure).

I'm not realy sure how effective rudder should be...here we have two tiny rudders moving heaviest part of the plane.Judging by the model it has smaller elevators that Fw190 (they have comparable weights,Shinden is just a bit heavier)..plus they have to move four cannons with ammo in the nose,so I suspect that pitch control and response was not stellar.
Overall,it kicks ass ;D

New J7W1 fm (http://storebror.it.cx/sas/archive/sas2/EnsignRo/Planes/J7W1fmupdate.7z)

This is just an update,so backup classes of your J7W1 and replace them with the ones in this zip file.DiffFM is included...and it works in UP2.0..

Mr Kodama has provided some info,like correct SL speed,supercharger etc...so this is final version from me,consider it as a stopgap untill Kodama releases an official fm for this plane.

Cheers
Sani

I know the J7W1 is a Navy designation but I figured the Army would let the rivallry go for this time as they would probably have wanted their own version of this.  ;)

Post by: SAS~Bombsaway on January 06, 2010, 08:34:50 AM
I know this plane was actualy built but it never saw action so some may call this a what if plane but I would love to see this one "grow" a bit into what if the Japanese made a carrier version. Folding wings just outside the tail fins and a tail hook for recovery. The carrier version for deploying them to attack B-29s from anywhere in the pacific.

You mean torque?...it has over 2000hp and a huge six blade prop...and tiny rudders :)
I just took this one for a test yesterday, expecting a significant torque effect with the new FM in place.
However, instead of torque issues I saw this one showing a massive AOA increase when pulling the stick, unlike any other canard aircraft I've tested in other simulations. I'm not quite sure whether this would reflect realistic behaviour, but as far as I can tell these high AOA looks a bit too massive to me.
Yes, the 2000 hp keep you from falling into a stall though, but on the other hand due to that behaviour the maneuverability isn't as high as one would expect for this aircraft design.

Another thing I noticed is that the rudder seems to operate too good to be true.
Canards usually show poor rudder response due to the control surfaces being pretty close to the center of gravity.
Since the J7W1 uses quite small rudder surfaces, one would expect to see more trouble when rudder input is neccessary.

Just my 0.02$...

Post by: SAS~Sani on January 13, 2010, 02:03:52 AM
I've tried to actualy position rudder forces near the center of gravity...but then I get a plane that is so directionaly unstable that it can't perform a simple roll.So this is a small compromise just to keep it flyable ;)
About AoA,maybe it just looks massive because elevators lift the nose instead of lowering the tail (where pilot sits at the pivot point)...

No problem, I'm perfectly fine with this (as with the plane at all), just wanted to mention it.
I can fully understand your point.

Yes maybe. I'll have to track this down later (maybe this weekend) with wingtip smoke on and from a slightly increased distance.

Post by: tater718 on January 15, 2010, 11:32:28 PM
The first thing I did when the new FM was available was to see if it flew like what I have read about canard designs.Try fooling around with this AC with the engine off and you'll see some amazing stall properties.

Folding wings just outside the tail fins and a tail hook for recovery. The carrier version for deploying them to attack B-29s from anywhere in the pacific.

I would have thought this aeroplane was wholly unsuited to carrier ops. One heavy landing and you've wiped out a propellor/engine. If the hook doesn't get the cables the prop will slice them. Plus, if the SAS fm is correct, you'd need a catapult to get it off the deck at all. Build one by all means if you want, but it's stretching a point.

Post by: SAS~Bombsaway on January 16, 2010, 07:14:20 AM
Sometimes "streaching a point" is just having fun. Some planes that are now availible are probably "streaching a point" to those who would fight all day about the dreaded "What if" concept. It was just a "flight of fancy" of a suggestion so to speak. ;D

Maybe I could propose a different approach:

 If the aircraft was only an experimental concept - a plane that flew only few times at all (twice?) it should be done in a way that shows all the flaws and bad sides of flying a machine that is still in its early development and is tricky to fly as hell.

Just a thought; but some times I feel some kind of disappointment when I jump in cockpit of some monster with unique design fitted with 2000hp engine behind me and I am able to fly it without any problem while for example the I-16 can still surprise me in a tight turn.

What do you think?
Title: Re: J7W1
Post by: caldrail on January 16, 2010, 08:07:06 AM
What would work well is a catapult kamikaze version. That wouldn't need recovery surely? And... What would work even better on a carrier (though the japanese were having trouble keeping them afloat by 1945) is the jet version.

It seems the Germans had a similar aeoplane too, as this rare and never before seen photo reveals...

Hello again everyone,
as promised here are the first batch of skins for the brand new aircraft Mod
created by Mr.Kodama.

I would like to thank mr. Highlander_262 for sharing his very nice template, which I
have also added parts of my own template and worked with both to create something cool.
I have created a whole new cockpit interior for this aircraft, and added alot of other new
details to it, so I hope you enjoy it, as much as it was my pleasure to paint it.


Cheers
MAX-theHitman

Yesterday I installed the new F-86s and MiG-15s & -17 and when I set up a QMB between the F-86 and the J7W1, the scheme on the J7W1 was completely warped from the mid-fuselage to the back, wings included. In fact when I opened the QMB window of the J7W1 I could already see the distortion. When I modified the same mission with the MiGs, the problem was gone. Therefore, the conclusion is that there is some clash with the F-86s. It only affects the skin as far as I could see. In all cases I was flying against the japanese. Has anybody else experienced this?
I've got a 4.09 installation with SAS mod activator and all mods installed manually.
Title: Re: J7W1
Post by: SAS~CirX on January 30, 2010, 12:32:51 PM
So, just to be clear, you say that the F86 mod is causing the skin of the J7W1 to appear warped. You did make sure that in that instance, you were using a J7 skin, and that it was not perhaps, a skin from another plane that slipped in there?
Title: Re: J7W1
Post by: mik88 on January 30, 2010, 10:56:27 PM
No, it was the default skin, and as I said, just changing the F-86 for a MiG-15 or -17 in the QMB and the skin wasn't warped anymore! The forward section of the fuselage wasn't affected.

I've just played a QMB game flying F-86A-5s against J7W1s and although the skin warping didn't show up in the QMB windows, it did in the game. I have some pics but I can't seem to be able to attach them (the option isn't available?). Anyhow, I was wrong in that it does affect the whole plane. I was still using the default skin with markings on.

If this happen is due probably of an FM imprecision!

Big thanks to creators of this plane, you have a real beer or two on me. I'm enjoying it very much.

At first glance the damage modelling seems really good - the engine is somewhat easy to kill with a fighter from behind, but that's how it's supposed to be I guess. Also the wing fueltanks are prone to catching fire, one of the rare planes where this is historical in my opinion. Bombers you attack with this bird will have a much harder time getting your engine tho! And the quad pack of 30mm cannons obliterates anything in a microsecond. A very potent plane, superbly modelled. What can one possibly want more?

i like the experimental cannon setup but they seem overpowered, and i'd love 20mms, making the already killer good plane faster and able to go after fighters easier
Title: Re: J7W1
Post by: Dark Apostle on March 31, 2010, 12:09:14 AM
Dont think they planned on fitting 20mm's to it. Was built to intercept B-29's afaik, so the quad 30mm were the best choice.

Ah, yes, you are speaking about real planes. I ment the virtual ones. Cannons on the J7W "feel" very much like those on the Frank. To me it seems they are certainly not Mk-103s or 108s.

Why isn't spent cartridge case ejection modelled in the J7W1?

I can't find any references as to where the ejection ports may have been positioned - maybe the spent cases were collected in a bag to prevent them bouncing off the propeller blades or getting sucked into the air intakes.

I did think that the cannons were possibly an after thought, and a bit rushed, as the first model was unarmed the same as the real prototype, even the gun sight wasn't included...

I'm not complaining because I'd rather have this model than not at all but there doesn't appear to be a landing light and the navigation lights are not completed (there is a gap in the wing tips where they should be but possibly this is how the prototype was)?

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/dead/dead.gif)
No steam of spent brass?

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/dead/dead.gif)
I'm not sure if the original would have had ejection ports  - I've never seen an illustration that shows them
 
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/dead/dead.gif)
Late versions of the raiden used the type 5 30mm autocannon and had ejection ports

If anyone here is interested, I have been working on converting Kodama's J7W1 into a German Henschel P-75. This is my first major attempt at any sort of mod, besides what I helped with on CK and messing around with 3ds (which failed miserably). I have done the following work to it so far:

-Mesh editing to remove 2 rear stabilizers on the wings, replacing it with a single larger one under the fuselage (still needs to be larger, might need to get a donor part, but I am considering options about this)

-Mesh editing of forward stabilizers, moving them forward and sweeping their angle to match HS P75

-Working counter rotating prop

-I gave the HS P75 its own slot, and editted the weapons to German weapons

-It has its own FM, in which the counter rotating props void out almost all torque effect (as they are meant to do)

-It is currently using the J7W1's 6 bladed prop, but I am working on the 3 bladed version that would have been on the HS P75

I have sent Kodama a PM asking for his permission to post this in a work in progress thread. I'll be waiting to hear back from him. Kodama if you are reading this, please PM me. Till then a little pic, tips or advice are welcome.

Awesome stuff James, great work!
I'm quite confident that Kodama will allow you to proceed on this, it's kind of accolate for a modder if his work is valued good enough to even become base of new mods :D

Best regards - Mike

Thanks Mike (for comments and your invaluable help) and Cirx. Just a small update. Kodama has given me permission to post the Henschel P-75 as a WIP, so in the next day or 2 I will start that thread and have some better pictures as I progress.

Hi guys. im happily using some version of Kodama's J7W1. but can someone tell me the link to the latest version of his J7W, because that link in first post lead to the some dead page....

In past (very close past) the link was working correctly...but now i cant check if there is some updated version of this Mod, i even cant compare my version with latest (if there is some newer)- to see the changes and bugfixes.

So please can me someone give the link to the latest ver? is some "Live" link where i can download latest version of J7W1 mod?


EDIT: Long time ago resolved. As long as i have fresh info from Kodama's personal site and blog (in japanese lang).

So, if u want to know more about the actual situation in development of J7W1 MOD

===>> go to the thread called "B7A" created by Baronbutcher in "Requests"

and there are my posts with new informations and more.

  This is a gem!  You cant have 1946 without it.  B-29s be scared!  I cant beleive this wonderful adition.  The model is good looking and the decision to use the P-63 flight model.  Its as touchy as I imagined the real thing to be. 
  Congratulations on a great addition.  Now where is the jet version? :P

Really, Thank You

Why isn't spent cartridge case ejection modelled in the J7W1?

I can't find any references as to where the ejection ports may have been positioned - maybe the spent cases were collected in a bag to prevent them bouncing off the propeller blades or getting sucked into the air intakes.

I've since discovered that it was designed that way and the spent cases were collected so they wouldn't foul the prop!

Kasbergi, what skin is that on your shinden in your sig?
Title: Re: J7W1
Post by: von_Kasbegi on October 17, 2010, 04:10:29 PM
LoL, that isnt any skin on latest (current) version of J7W1 MOD (published 31-12-2009) from Kodama.

Its just done from one of CG's i have DL-ed earlier this year, which were published through Aerocinema.

I have done from it my sign and I also changed some things like adding some typings and putting a few of filters on it.
Thats all how i made my sign.

As First, Im taking back my request for link to some newer version of J7W1 Mod, coz in the last time i've "been free of charge" to see whats new in Kodama's work.

But If You want to know more about actual development
of Kodama's J7W1 MOD look into thread in "Requests" section called
"B7A..."
there are also the pics (URL) to WIP's and I've uploaded them to share with other mates here.

I have some fresh info about latest development in J7W1 Mod same as other prepared Mod-planes like
J4M1, Mansyu (Manshu) Ki-98, Ki-83 and B7A2 Ryusei.
They all will be probably released in one pack.

Look there and you will see new details about it.

Im not US-man or Englishman, so sorry for my English with some grammatic bugs or big mis-typings, im writing too fast that is the matter of them. Im only not "perfect" in English.

Im NOT a Grammar Nazi, LoL !!! ;D

@von_Kasbegi Sorry - I've only just read your post in requests  :-[

Thanks for the info...

The reason why I didn't read the thread in Requests was probably because of its name: B7A 'Shooting Star'

I thought it was about this Korean War aircraft

Yes, he is really working on that amazing things...we shall only wait when it will be released.

Me personally, Im awaiting most the wonderful Ki-98 and Ki-83 same as the other ones like B7A2 or refined J7W1 with many changes +improvements and correct FM +DM.

Actually he is tuning the planes, making important fixes and small refinements on 3D models.

When it will be mature then it will go out soon.

for Now just stay patient. xD

Has anyone noticed that first version of Ki-98 and a new version of J7W1 are downloadable at http://damawo.blog99.fc2.com/ ? In the left column you'll find Download as last section and links are there below small pictures of planes.

Unfortunately, they both use P-63 FM now, so someone should change the edited J7W1 classfile to use our FM, and someone could make a new FM for Ki-98.

Be careful with Ki-98 brakes, my first flight ended like this:  ;D

Post by: razor1uk on December 14, 2012, 08:19:03 AM
You need to check you have inputed the correct air, plane and weapon txt lines into their correct files, also what 'buttons' are you using in DBW?

Before I accidentally killed my DBW & DBW 1916 following an (aging hardware) HDD crash, it worked for me using buttons version 9.7.
Although I think the standard DBW buttons will also work too - if I remember, this Kyushu, is the first A/C (aircraft) I added to my standard/stock/vanilla DBW and it worked then.

I apologise to sound condisending to you, I do not mean too, sometimes in the rush to get 'into the blue', mistakes are made without being noticed - in real life this kills pilots and crew/passengers... so don't pull out your hair yet please :D

You need to check you have inputed the correct air, plane and weapon txt lines into their correct files, also what 'buttons' are you using in DBW?

I have the plane, and the 2 other variants - Shinden field mod and Shinden Kai, all working in DBW1.71 and without the need for any buttons. I just unzipped and placed the folders in #DBW and then added the air.ini line ... nothing more should be necessary. Buttons are, thankfully, Praise the Lord and Hallelujah, no longer necessary for DBW - and not a day too soon either.

Anyway, start over, even download the files again just to be on the safe side, be certain you have the folders in #DBW at the correct depth and add the lines to air.ini.

And maybe a silly tip, but be sure that the game loads BEFORE you add the lines to the air.ini. Maybe something else is causing a ctd. And if you fixate on the Shinden, you may never realize it is something else causing the ctd. This has happened to me more than once ...

The skins made by me and posted at Mission4Today (Download4theMods section) will
fit very nicely the first version of this airplane made by Kodama.
- The second airplane version he built he changed the model skin around a little bit and the old skins
 do not fit anymore. So ONLY the old skins fit into the first version and the second version still needs a new skin-template for it.
Anyway, I don´t know which version airplane you are flying now, but donwload some skins
and test them on the airplane to see if they fit properly. I believe the jet version also uses the
old skins, so its cool to fly.

Jet versions (as well as field mod. and CRP) are using old-mapping skins. The one from M4T. I used MAX_thehitman skins as new default.
As for original Kodama's J7W1, version from Sept 2011 with new mapping - you can
1) patch it to old mapping by installing it: http://www.mediafire.com/?51uye1b5iw060jj
2) and then use old skins from M4T

Always thought that this plane should have beefed up rudder wheels and deleted main landing gear for weight savings = better performance...

While goofing around I managed to rip my mains off flying to fast and got to experiment! LOL!

Unfortunately the rudder wheels aren't coded as wheels... So I couldn't take off again... But it was still loads of fun!

I guess you just found out why they were placed there.

But not singe gun.

I cannot get onto the forum with the actual download, I have to make an account for it yet I've gone through every, single, email I have and every single time I try to register the page crashes and then if I try to sign anyway the page says my account isn't in use, put the download on this dammit!

Anyone have any of these skins still? All links return to 404.

They were posted many many years ago by Highlander_262. He has since retired (I think).
I will look into my skin files and see if I can discover them again. At the moment I have skin files saved up
in diferent portable terabyte boxes, but I know I have them somewhere.

While you wait, try these other skins I posted, if you wish . . .
