Shock Ansorber or Strut Effects?

Post by Marat » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:08 pm

Dear friends,

Is there any mod for shock absorber or strut effects for Il-2 1946 like in Il-2 Battle for Stalingrad? I watched video of Battle for Stalingrad and found those effects very realistic when the planes taxi and take off. Why not to have the same in Il-2 1946? Is it available, or is it possible to create the same? Unfortunatelly I am just an amateur and have no idea how whether this can be realized and how difficult is to create it. Any ideas?

, im pretty sure the Spitfire IXC has soft suspension , at least similar to what you ask for, i did try to copy the Bos effect , it does does give a nicer feel & the aircraft will rock from side to side depending on power / throttle applied

or it is an option for Spitfire VA..
run SETUP_SPITFIRE-MK-VA.bat
select option 6. (Suspension setup)
then option 2. (install soft suspension)

can not remember any other AC i added this to ?

If I remember well, this kind of effect was introduced to the game with the Hs123:

public void moveWheelSink()
{
if(FM.Gears.onGround())
suspension = suspension + 0.008F;
else
suspension = suspension - 0.008F;
if(suspension < 0.0F)
{
suspension = 0.0F;
if(!FM.isPlayers())
FM.Gears.bTailwheelLocked = true;
}
if(suspension > 0.1F)
suspension = 0.1F;
Aircraft.xyz[0] = 0.0F;
Aircraft.ypr[0] = 0.0F;
Aircraft.ypr[1] = 0.0F;
Aircraft.ypr[2] = 0.0F;
Aircraft.xyz[2] = 0.0F;
float f = Aircraft.cvt(FM.getSpeed(), 0.0F, 25F, 0.0F, 1.0F);
suspL = FM.Gears.gWheelSinking[0] * f + suspension;
Aircraft.xyz[2] = Aircraft.cvt(suspL, 0.0F, 0.24F, 0.0F, 0.24F);
hierMesh().chunkSetLocate("GearL2_D0", Aircraft.xyz, Aircraft.ypr);
suspR = FM.Gears.gWheelSinking[1] * f + suspension;
Aircraft.xyz[2] = Aircraft.cvt(suspR, 0.0F, 0.24F, 0.0F, 0.24F);
hierMesh().chunkSetLocate("GearR2_D0", Aircraft.xyz, Aircraft.ypr);
}

Well unless you can make a single code to cover every aircraft (also reworking the planes(s) strut in max). Ima guessing that would be a ton of work for every aircraft in the game.

I guess they all vary but can put in Ac family mother class, this covers example all spitfires.

& Yes I did find issues with the 3d, as you say. I didn't look too much but in some case I think needs new parts adding(new Gear_ ?) & therefore will need more class work

The effect at least for spitfire va is only FM change & very simple, no need for additional code

Hi!

That's good news if it is possible to make a single mod to cover all aircrafts! But I will never manage to do this myself, cause the only thing I can do in Il-2 is creating missions :) . I have no idea what is code, class, mesh etc, unfortunately. Is it realy worth hoping and awating for this kind of mod at all? If all of us have the same I believe all of us would be very very happy!!!

Yes
But as aircraft differ i think it would take time to get right.

In meantime you can take a look at this pack if you want try changing suspension settings for aircraft

This should be for experts, not for me. I am just a user and I am afraid it will take me for ages to understand what to change and how to change anything in the world I do not understand which))) The only thing is to wait for a single mod for all planes, which probably will be released sometime))
