BAT ZRCV-1 USS Long Island, 1938
« on: October 01, 2021, 11:09:40 PM »

I have a question.
Is there a way to set "Grumman F2F-1Z (ZRS), 1937" to "ZRC V-1 USS Long Island, 1938"?
Also, is there a way to take it off?
I am Japanese.
I used Google Translate.

No, each drone is only working with one specific mothership. It is in the code.
And no, the ZRS and ZRCV cannot land or take off. It is also a game limitation and has to do with the size.

From the BAT 4.2 post:
A few words on technical aspects of the mod itself

- Drones work only on one specific mother ship, they cannot be interchanged. In the aircraft list, these are sorted and you can identify which airship they belong to.
- The Akron and Macon, as any airship, had limited operation altitudes, the so-called pressure height. It's the maximum barometric altitude above which the airship would start to automatically vent gas and lose it.  The Akron-class has a pressure height of around 850m. With a special new FM feature, the airships can't be operated beyond much of that altitude.  So when building a mission, stick to 500 - 800 meters for good operations!
- Good operation speeds is between 90 and 120 km/h. 100 km/h is the best middle grounds as cruising speed. The Macon was capable of a top speed of 130 km/h
- The new airships cannot land! The gear parameters necessary for a plane of this size are not supported anymore by the base game, sorry.
- Docking works with the dock/undock key. You must assign that key.
- Docking is easy! All you have to do is to slowly move close, into the vicinity of the the docking trapeze and press the key. The game has a fairly reasonable threshold to "catch" you.

- Due to the highly integrated nature of the airships into EngineMod, and all the prerequisites for all the drones, I won't be making a stand alone for the time being.
