Lancaster's nose obscuring bombsight
« on: November 21, 2021, 12:17:00 PM »

Hi

I've been flying some lancester missions lately and I finally got to the high altitude bombing ones and then found a very annoying 3d model issue




THE NOSE IS VISIBLE IN THE BOMBSIGHT lol

I tried Ranwers's updated lanc as well, same issue
Is there a fix I haven't found yet, or maybe someday someone will save the day for us heavy fliers?
Also there's the uncontrollable left turn on takeoff and the lod distances that don't seem to have been fixed in Ran's mod but those are small annoyances. I'm more annoyed by not seeing the target early enough to make corrections in time

I flew this kite in BAT but this issue isn't BAT related, instead the actual aircraft so I posted here

I know, stops me using it as well. I understand this was supposed to have been rectified years ago, but was never done. Shame as it makes using such an iconic aircraft very difficult.

There's a java workaround for these things. It is not used in the classes in question.
I think I may be able to whip something up for the next BAT update. At least I'll try.

@ Andy

I don't know which SFS the Lancaster cockpit bomber is in and I'm not going to go through all the SFS to find it...
I had the same problem in my game (UP2.01).
I changed a line in the hier.him of the cockpit-Bomber folder :
[BlackBox]
Mesh BlackBox
Parent _ROOT_
Hidden
Attaching 0 1 0 -1 0 0 0 0 1 5.0292 0 -1.67169

That works too.
I'd have done it with hiding meshes in java in bombsight mode.

Also there's the uncontrollable left turn on takeoff

There a fix for this, made a couple of years ago, in the Freemodding site. Is made for Y-Pack 4.13.4, 4.12 and HSFX.

I'm not used to it! I forgot that you can very easily make extractions in BAT !
For those who are in a hurry (like lemons) to waiting for Andy's fix, see the attachment!  :P

This is really great news! - looking forward to a BAT update. Can finally do my "Tour of Duty"
On a side note the bombardier compartment seems very inapropriate? plus has visible wrong meshes like the bombsight, wouldn't a Mosquito standin be almost a deadringer?
