    CFS2 Sopwith Triplane four models


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - World War I

    Description: This plane impressed so the Germans in the end of 1916 that she had an impressive numbers of descendants on both side during the two last years of World War One.
    Here is a virtual cockpit detailed to add to the Aerocrate Sopwith Triplane, this pack contains four different models, a gauge and four liveries. Gary Aumaugher's model is needed to be completed by this set, and a folder with adds for RobH liveries is too provided.

    are needed:
    - "http://aerocrate.com/documents/Sop_Tripe.zip"
    - "http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?action=jump&catid=125&id=7315"

    The VC and gauge are by Martin Klein, and the flight dynamics by Stephan Scholz.

    These models will need more ressources from your computer, so have a look at your frame rate!

    Great thanks to Gary Aumaugher, RobH, Stephan Scholz, Ravenna, KDriver, and all the team involved in the Westfront project.

    Enjoy

    Very nice!

    With the new Western Front Uires and the Western Front Scenery out, I'm back flying the WW1 stuff. This looks great. What's the ETA?

    Beautiful work Martin - thanks very much!

    Thanks for your good words about the sopwith Triplane.

    Robin, for having it to work in FS2004, I don't own neither FS2004 nor FS2002, so can't check if it works, these models are exported from Gmax in FS2004 format, but in the idea to convert it to CFS2, a first time with MDLC, then with SCASM to correct a problem with MDLC and to reduce the stick and pedals amplitude movement, and then a second time with MDLC to get the CFS2 format, so in the first exported Gmax model (in FS2004 format) the stick turns a silly manner and you wouldn't be happy with it, the gauge wouldn't probably work, and you might find an aircraft.cfg and air file to fit the models.

    Would you be happy with the model converted to FS2002? I believe in this case the stick movement would perhaps be fine (but if yes I can't bring any support to have it to work)

    All the best, and stay safe

    Hi Martin, Sure, having it in FS2002 mode should be OK, It's worth a try.

    If I may refer you to the answer given above by the honourable member from Noordwijk.. (Huub)
    give it a try as is, many of the aerocrate products did work just fine in Fs2004

    Hello folks
    I made a special model, for testing, with FS9 key defined animations for the stick, let me know if it works in FS9

    Hope you'll enjoy

    Apologies I know its a different sim.

    But the question was already asked and partially answered here. So to answer Robin's question I did the test:

    Gary Aumaugher's model straight from /www.aerocrate.com :




    The CFS2 model by Klein, with the original CFS2 model, with the modified VC :




    The same model with the modified VC, but now with the specific FS2004 model file :




    And the VC in FS2004 :




    Personally I would swap the flight dynamics in FS2004 with those by Frank Elton for his Triplane. For the rest the model is really nice with a great VC.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Many thanks for the test, Huub
    I'm happy to see the gauge works too in FS2004, so I can provide a FS2004 version for each of the four models, the liveries could be re-worked too to add some "glance" with DXT3 textures, but I'll let that to a FS9 user
    So, on the four FS9 models, I'll fit the throttle with its stick space of a gauge.
    ....later, cheers
