Awesome plane!!! Really want to thank you for this! Now to get it over the Himalayas... :)

Anyone up for this? I actually do 3D modeling, but have no time left. Had to draw a line, so I will only enjoy Outerra and not tinker with it. :)

Wow, this is a very nice plane indeed, and those paintjobs are beautiful. It's easy to fly too.

@Levi, you said you used real measuremens/data. However, when I fly at about 7000/8000 feet it already has lost a lot of its power and starts stalling etc, while the ceiling should be somewhere around 25000 feet, according to its specs. Am I doing something wrong, or did you choose a bit different settings?

Hi!

First of all I want to thank you for the "bug" report.

Here you can see what data I used when I created the .xml files using Aeromatic. .PDF Note that where I left "0 to use estimated value" I didn't found any real info to fill up.

Now the problem you mention above is a bit weird for me. As you can see in the .pdf, The engine is Turboprop. Now, I created the "prop" file for the propellers too, but there's a problem, prop file is somehow not compatible with Turbine Engines, or I simply lack the knowledge on how to make it work together. So later I decided to create Piston Engines in order to use the prop file too, so it worked. But I didn't noticed that the aircraft can't fly above 7000/8000 ft. So I did a research again about this and I figured out that if I want to use Rocket/Turbine/Turboprop engines, I have to use Direct Thrust that creates a pure turbine engine with a thrust table that simulates the turboprop propeller effects.

I tested it and it seems to work nice, and now the aircraft can fly around 25000 ft. I tried to fly above that and it seems to reach even 30000 ft... I have no idea where the top altitude is in FDM files, I think it's located on the tables... I'm not an expert on JSBSim and much less, in fact this is my first time mesing up with this kind of things :D

Thanks again for the report because it helps to improve the dynamics of this beauty and possible future Aircrafts :)

I'll upload the update very soon (15-20 min?)

Cheers!

Hey, thanks voor the quick update. However, after the update I can't start the engines. While it is very peaceful to just glide around in total silence, this is not really the target for this type of plane :).

I've tried to remove the folder and reinstall it, but there seems to be a bug somewhere in the scripts.

Damn, let me take a look to the .otx something is wrong there for sure. Btw try to get the incremental update, that should work until I update the main download.

EDIT: Yep, I didn't included the updated .js in the main file, only in the incremental update. My mistake :D Uploaded again. Thank you for reporting :) I appreciate that.

So, rather that trying to please everyone with their "local" militaly colors, I thought that THIS would cover all of us!

Very cool! John, I think we will see it in the next texture pack? :) Cool stuff! I like the idea of OUF.

Btw... indeed 9000 feet was the max.. I lost power and had to walk the Himalayas... Glad that is fixed now! :)

We should use the digital camo on the default 8x8. Perhaps a bit darker than it is on there.

I must say, it would be nice and maybe a bit more realistic if the plane wasn't so shiny, but more matte, especially with the camo.

Don't know much about 3d-modeling and texturing, but would this be hard to accomplish?

thx_nb, this should be a specular map option? I kind of like it on the first 2 paintjobs, there is a chromatic/anodized feeling to it, and it goes well with a classic plane, but on a Camo version matte paint would be nice.
Jagerbomber: me too! The entire "safe and snugly in a vehicle with bad conditions outside syndrome" is celebrating since I discovered Outerra. :) That is a syndrome right? :D

I agree mostly about the other paintjobs.
I think somebody mentioned before, that with the blank metal-like surface it's nice that it's shiny, but it would give a nice contrast if the colored parts (red/blue) would be more matte.

Still a brilliant plane though, and those images (@clawhammer) are very good.
