I succeeded in getting her historical payloads back


You'll see standard British GPs, HE HVAR as well, most important the MCs from the Tirpitz raids
and BPF Missions. US Ordonnance I saw on pictures of the Thai Fireflies used.
45 Gallon Hurritanks as well.

The 90 Galllons Droptank is still missing.



I failed cloning from the Zero underwing Tank, a similar in shape.
If we can clone that, we can assign correct fuel load/weight, maybe rescale a bit.
Just an idea.

Semi-Armour Piercing and Armour Piercing ordonance:
US SAP or AP I'm unsure, I know the Cuda had these, but here I'm overasked.

Hello Tobias, do you have a drawing for that tank, I made 75 and 150 for my Lysander, maybe they can be adapted or a new one made. ;)


I notice I only have two loads with Gabriel's machine, I will reactivate my other version to see what that has.


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

... OK guys, I just found a fix for the wings folding ...!
... I just fold the wings only in cockpit view, and no collision with the main gear can be seen ...!

... ben ç't'à dire, sans doute à cause du confinement, je me trouve présentement confronté à une baisse de qualité certaine, des produits importés de Chine, comme ce pôv' Firefly qui a les pivots à l'ouest ...!  :D

... alors je triche comme je peux, en attendant le 11 mai ...!  :P

I can post the classfile with my changed Loadouts. This uses BAT dumped loadouts explicitely.

Have no measures at hand, you'll not find in Firefly related Documents though.
This is a rare topic. Not even a single Linedrawing.

I'm not good in this specific Modding, I have tried to add Droptanks to the Barracuda and Tarpon too,
without success. Trouble for me COD file tinkering... And messing with adding Hooks etc.
The Droptank Orientation is very weird then and completely covers the Pylons.

It only worked at the 45 Gal Tanks at the Firefly and in my SBD overhaul to add proper droptanks.

Attached you may find a 90gal drop tank already done... Please see if you can make good use of it!

Ney, not good, wrong shape and suspension, sorry.

To get a clue of the shape, it is a least copy of the Paper Droptank shape.

I'm trying to do a clone of that Paper Tank.

Thanks anyway

I fear you worked on the wrong class file; in Epervier's download I find FireflyMKI.class, whilst yours reads "FAIREY_MK1.class"...

Firefly with big Boom Boom you will get, just Patience young Padawan.

I have to decompile this old stuff myself. BTW. My Java is reknown to be messy, so I wonder if
anybody dares to take it for Final.

Okay, 108 Gallons Droptank turning into 90 Gallons. This damn can't resolve Symbol Error???
can somebody please help and correct?

        Property.set(class1, "shotFreq", 0.25F);
        Property.set(class1, "external", 1);
    }
}

I also need corrected Weight, dunno what this Massa(russian Hacker Language) is referring to, maybe Fahrenkilo, but unsure.

Code: [Select]
        Property.set(class1, "kalibr", 0.6F);
        Property.set(class1, "massa", 294.88F);

Thank you all again for jumping on this.

Interestingly I was just reading these pages yesterday - perhaps some of the pictures on these pages can be useful.
