    No workee for me

    I made a backup of the orig .mdl file for the S2F-2 and then replaced it with the one you just made for the tail boom movement, I hit the CTRL+E then 2 and nothing
    happened. I noticed that it worked for some one else in FSX so I wonder if I hit all the keys necessary for it to function?

    Whatever sequence you use to open the secondary exit, or cargo door, that is what it is set to be.

    You did download the correct file from my post # 73, not the earlier one?

    The model file in the model folder should be dated 5/5/2012, 11:11AM

    I did. I guess I will have to fumble around and see what key combos work. I will look at the FSX controls and see what it says to use
    for secondary exit key/s. I normally use the Control + 1 or 2 keys and the doors will open.

    I am using your file dated 5/5/2012 11:11AM.....

    Okay, great. I use shift+e, release then 2 and that is the default FSX setting I believe.

    I didn't do that

    ah ha.....I did not do that, ... so how do i do those edits?

    Which cfg and what is/are the entries to make?


    EDIT: I sorted it out and it works great!!!!

    I didn't know to go into the aircraft.cfg file and change number of exits from 1 to 2. It had been on 1 and that is why it did not work for me before.

    Then I fired up FSX, slelcted the S2f and hit the Shift E + 2 and bammo.....the boom extended.

    Thanks weeebbz for you help.

    Hi Milton and everyone else on the team!
    First, I have to say, great work! Really! Flying FSX only, I must say, there a re no complains about the aircraft's behavior in FSX. This is not very often the case with native FS9 aircraft ported to FSX. Thumbs up!

    Concerning the turbine version - which I am really looking forward to - would you consider releasing a turbine version of the Trader as well, just like the KC-2 Turbo Trader for the Brazilian Navy? Here is a link to Flightglobal:
    http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...sation-365929/
    That would be awesome, as it shows the "modern" side of this classic design!

    Keep it up!

    Well, they are Traders and not Trackers. Look here:
    http://www.s2ftracker.com/braziltraders.htm
    And there is a picture here as well:
    http://www.naval.com.br/blog/2011/10...asil/#comments

    They have only recently been purchased by Brazil and some of them have been moved from Tucson to Mesa in Arizona for turbine conversion. I recon, they will have a secondary role as tankers! So they will have a refueling basket on the tail!

    The engines should be the same as on the Argentine versions! So, maybe you can put together the c-1 model with the S-2T engines and if there is time to spare, try to make a refueling system.

    Cheers,

    Seawing

    Thank you for the clarification. I will investigate the possibility.

    Yes, looking very possible. :-)

    Using the C-1A fuselage and the S2T wings and engines and gear.

    Will add the fuel probe.

    BTW these should fly well in FSX as I generally develop FDE's in FSX and then revise backwards fro the FS9 plane......
