No-Collision Runway 3

Post by dr strangelove » Thu Oct 10, 2019 6:04 pm


Video demo's this in IES v3.5
Goto 4:03 to see the LA7 drive onto the runway without any bump or damage to the undercarriage
Then the re-arm repair refuel procedure takes a little time

No-Collision Runway 3
---------------------

This runway has 2 simple but useful features
I have removed the collision objects ...
It is set to ground level ...

This means ...

You can use this mod to set your take off point anywhere on the map, (see transparent type), be it roads , next to a house , etc

About:
You can still use this as a regular runway but with this you can drive onto it & off it without your landing gear breaking or being damaged, so visually you can see the runway & use its functions but its the same as driving over the ground, i was tempted to remove the texture completely but i though for now its nice to see where it is

Re-arm / repair ;
In offline / single player mode ;
You can use it to drive onto & engage the re-arm, repair, re-arm feature contained within some game mod versions, obviously this is not needed for PAL's version but useful for the more complex & timed Repair/Re-arm/Refuel
Simply drive onto the runway engage chocks & select this option. (IES & Ultrapack ... others ?)

Mission builder;
Select Runway 3 (RwySteelLow) from the mission builder

I use this within IES v3.5 for re-arm, repair etc in single player offline mode.
really this was like 10minute Job & i hope either no-one has done this already etc
but i couldn't find another way to Re-arm , Repair etc within IES in single player mode, probably there is another way ?, but this allows me to choose where i re-arm , repair etc, just place it anywhere you like

You can also use this for PAL's VM9. It works the same way
Where ever you put this run way

--------------------

Download Runway 3;
install to Mods folder & it will replace Runway-3

--------------------

OPTIONAL

Remove runway texture or create your own ;
use this texture to remove the runway texture, this way you can place this runway as your Repair station without seeing the runway, allowing you to create your own area, perhaps with trucks nearby etc, you could also add your own texture etc
Download NULL texture https://www.mediafire.com/file/4alqxbw1 ... 9.rar/file

i hope its useful?

Yes,
I didn't realise untill you said that especially for ealier builds like 4.09 / IES , That as a transparent runway type can be used as a truely start anywhere location & as a basic taxi from / start from point without any change of ground surface etc

It was of course possible before with a normal runway but now without collision & transparent simply place it anywhere , set your take off point , & now I believe we now have true start anywhere mod, + even better that no classes so should work for any version of il2 no conflicts.

So use this mod to set your take off point anywhere on the map

sorry about the descriptive image , i did it very quickly

given the choice between shadows in cockpit & this repair feature in ies , well its the repair feature for me. Ive been trying it out this feature in ies & was pleasantly surprised that you can watch the fuel gauges rise slowly in cockpit & its all relative on amounts etc , really nice
