    I try to keep an updated list always on my desktop, and typically drop that in with any shader updates that may come along in the future.

    Good to know

    The BF110G-4 series of NJG aircraft use the same as the E1's already in your list.


    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16NF_gunsight" PosX="0.001" PosZ="1.672" PosY="0.972" Pitch="90" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    For the ETO He 219 Uhu I use

    Reticle: (but you lose the simulated Reflector Glass Plate as it's part of gc_Revi12_c1.dds)


    Forward Looking Sight
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16D_gunsight" PosX="0.0625" PosZ="4.980" PosY="0.835" Pitch="90.25" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>


    Upward Looking Schrage Music Sight for use with ETO_He219A2M3
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16D_gunsight" PosX="0.0625" PosZ="4.01175" PosY="1.179" Pitch="-1" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>


    I also made a change to the ETO_He219A2M3.xpd so you could properly center the Schrage Music Sight views. (The initial view is still wrong, but corrects itself after you change it the first time with the keypad or hat switch.)

    I found the stock internal reflections of the muzzle blast to be so bright as to completely mask the reticle and tracers. I've revised the cockpit m3d files (hex edited the glass transparency to lower the values from 44 to 12) to tone this down to more reasonable levels.


    Cockpit Lights:


    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="-0.475" PosZ="4.00" PosY="0.85" Pitch="110" Heading="20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    For 3gb_HellcatMK2 the reticle effect should be:

    The TBM / TBF family of Tarpon / Avenger aircraft cockpits don't display a gunsight mounted in the cockpit, but they do show a static reticle positioned out in front of the pilot.

    This will provide a dynamic reticle to replace the default K-14 style one provided by the original model.

    For SJ SB2C the dynamic retical effect should be:

    The stock B-25H doesn't have any gunsight modeled in the cockpit, but as a strafer with a 75mm cannon I thought it needed something to help with aiming. I couldn't put a piece of tape on the windshield so here's a simple reticle to use instead. Call it a field mod...

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_N2a_gunsight" PosX="-0.325" PosZ="3.5" PosY="0.865" Pitch="90" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    I've been looking at the stock P-38 model, and came up with this set of effects.
    Depending on the armament being used in the particular implementation of the model the Pitch for the gun sight reticle needs to be set to either 90.33 (as shown here) or 90.0.
    The engine effects are moved from the nacelles back to the exhaust from the turbos.

    The nav lights need some additions to the TextureMagic.ini [FullbrightSprite] ; section (found in AnKor's shaders30 folder) to show up properly at night.

    For RS_P38f_433_43 the dynamic reticle needs to be positioned at:

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_L3a_gunsight" PosX="0.00" PosZ="1.10" PosY="0.835" Pitch="90.33" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    and you need to add p38_retical.dds to the [ReticalStatic] section of TextureMagic.ini in the Shaders30 folder.

    Here's the location for the TOW Beaufighter dynamic gunsight reticle:

    Here's the location for the Bloch 152 dynamic gunsight reticle:

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="FR_OPL_4_gunsight" PosX="-0.0125" PosZ="0.866" PosY="0.85" Pitch="90.25" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    You also have to add sitz_ms406c1_c.dds to the [ReticleStatic] section of the TextureMagic.ini


    Here's the location for the
    Po630, and Po631 dynamic gunsight reticle:


    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="FR_OPL_3_gunsight" PosX="0.00" PosZ="1.15" PosY="0.9975" Pitch="89.75" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    Here's a workable location for using dynamic reticles with the new Havoc night fighter.

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16NF_gunsight" PosX="0.00" PosZ="2.600" PosY="0.850" Pitch="90.25" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    and better positions for the start-up effects

    <Effect Type="StartEngine0" EffectName="fx_engstrt" PosX="3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95" Pitch="-45"></Effect>
    <Effect Type="StartEngine1" EffectName="fx_engstrt" PosX="-3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95" Pitch="-45"></Effect>
    <Effect Type="StartEngine0" EffectName="fx_engstrt_jet" PosX="3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95" Pitch="-45"></Effect>
    <Effect Type="StartEngine1" EffectName="fx_engstrt_jet" PosX="-3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95" Pitch="-45"></Effect>
    <Effect Type="StartEngine0" EffectName="fx_smoke_touchdown" PosX="3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95"></Effect>
    <Effect Type="StartEngine1" EffectName="fx_smoke_touchdown" PosX="-3.1" PosZ="-1.35" PosY="-0.95"></Effect>

    If you happen to have the Firepower Me334 here's the location for the dynamic reticle.

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16D_gunsight" PosX="0.000" PosZ="-0.1" PosY="1.025" Pitch="89.0" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    Thanks for this, MajorMagee!

    Um, a really basic question: Do you put the reticule textures in the fxtextures folder like all the other effects called for in the aircraft xdp, or do you keep them in the aircraft/shared folder? I seem to get best results using the shared folder, but have never been sure.

    They should work the same in either place. I have them in the fxtextures folder because they're called by the effects.xml. Just don't have duplicates in both places or unexpected things will happen.

    If you need an aiming aid for the B-26 Marauder forward guns you can use this location:

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_N2a_gunsight" PosX="-0.30" PosZ="4.15" PosY="0.775" Pitch="90" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    The Firepower Firepower He 162A uses

    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="GR_OKL_Revi16D_gunsight" PosX="0.000" PosZ="2.6" PosY="0.485" Pitch="90.5" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    In this case you also have to add He-162_gunsight.dds to the [ReticleStatic] section of the TextureMagic.ini file.
