A-4 Skyhawks upgrade mod 1.0 - 22.03.2015
« on: February 17, 2015, 04:45:08 PM »

Here upgrade for A-4 Skyhawks pack 22.03.2015

New turn code and Engine thrust code, always using Lagrange Interpolation

FM is fixed, now Skyhawks are able to reach an outstanding instantaneus turn rate (ITR) of 25 deg/sec at mach 0.5 at sea level, but lost energy very quick if you pull many Gs

Be careful when you fly with a big payload

The weight difference between clean configuration, where A-4s reach excellent turn performances, and heavy attack loadouts is very big, plane could increases its weight to 70% so you had to be very gentle with stick and pull max 3,5/3.8G at full weight to avoid frame collapse!

i've aded a lot of new loadouts, also FAC/FO, now the list is really never ending

other features are the same of the mod released in my workshop

compared to stock mod this upgrade have too

1) Each variant has his own FM, Israelian version have A-4F flight model;

2) A-4B has only 3 pylons as history, wings external Pylons are deleted;

3) Added MER pylons in inner wing attach points;

4) Jet era 1.3 code;

5) added supersonic bang code;

6) correct weight (and fuel) of 300 gal droptanks, now is realistic;

7) added with 08/12/2013 upgrade: now all variants are refueling capable, TNX WESTERN!

8) added with 08/12/2013 upgrade: fixed fuel consumption, now combat radius is realistic

9) autopilot: now you can manage autopilot for elevators and heading as in Real life- Keys are Misc_1 & Misc_2

10) takeoff canopy hotfix

11) Turn code

12) engine code





how install:

you need the original "A4 Skyhawk! DBW, 4.10 and 4.09 versions" containing A-4B, A-4E, A-4F and A-4F modified (IDF - Israel)" mod released by Texx at Free Modding site

you need in your game the US Marine pack from S3 (F-18s and AV-8B+)

Thanks Vega ;)

you need the original A-4 mod released by Texx at Free Modding site
To be precise:
You need the mod named "A4 Skyhawk! DBW, 4.10 and 4.09 versions" containing A-4B, A-4E, A-4F and A-4F modified (IDF - Israel).
No other A4 derivative.

These are great Vega, wonderful work as always.  I'm often hanging around your workshop looking at the amazing work you do there.

However, I have one Down-Gripe - Just One - Do you ever intend to fix the A4 FM for No-Open-Canopy on Carrier takeoff?  I am sure you, like many of us, have known for some time that the old NoOpenCanopy code is of no use anymore, either with the SASengineMOD or 412 generally.  What is needed is an FM fix similar to those applied by Paulus to the Crusader and Corsair II, the F4, by Western0221, the F/A18C/D and Harrier, by SAS~S3 etc...

Paulus did post an A4 FM fix but it is not compatible with your Skyhawks, nor has it been for some time.  Please look at the FM mate, and get that damned canopy latched shut for carrier takeoffs.

I still love these, and love flying off boats, just don't look at the AI... :)
