    AAR in Lightning T5

    I admit it.... a missile did leave my aircraft...... Luckily for Mr Soviet the Red Top didn't fancy following the Bear and became captivated with an empty piece of airspace some miles ahead. If anyone fancies a free AA missile, it was last seen crashing towards Spithead...

    Brilliant all working now! Took the T5 up for an AAR sortie then bumped into a visitor on the way back home... Thanks for your help and patience! C.

    AAR in Lightning T5

    That entry in my tanker.xml currently looks like: <Element> <Select> <Value> (L:tanker,bool) 0 == (L:tankerzone,bool) 1 == and (L:FR_switch,bool) 1 == and if{ 1 (>L:RFOnXML, number) (L:RFOnXML, number) 1 == if{ 500 (>L:RFRateXML, number) } } els{ 0 (>L:RFOnXML, number) } </Value> </Select> </Element> So I just delete the first line that says "(L:tanker,bool) 0 ==" to make it match yours then save it. Should I be able to run TP and call up the tanker and still refuel in the T5 if I make this edit? C.

    Just turned off TP and I've been able to successfully refuel to 100% at the same rate as I do in the F3 and F6. You were right, there seems to be some sort of conflict with Steam, TP and the DLL. I can't call up the tanker or a target but at least I can make long haul trips again! It's only when you cant refuel do you realise what short legs the Lightning had.... You've got the patience of a saint, thanks for helping me out with it C.

    Yep TP running with a Victor called to pass on the fuel but still no fuel flow.... forgive the poor formation flying, the Victor seems to always want to descend, tired with the KC-135 but still no ball C.

    AAR in Lightning T5

    Thanks for attaching the dll Dave I've been having a play around with it this afternoon and I'm still drawing blanks I kept it named LightningF3.dll and edited the panel.cfg. I've experimented with leaving the T5.dll in the panel folder as well as removing it but still no change and I've loaded a flight in the microlight before I loaded the T5.... Although the port/starboard transfer works just fine. I'm definitely within the parameters: T5 with probe, nav lights on, between 10,000-35,000ft, 250-300knots, probe light on and refuel switch on. On the instrument panel all the lights light up showing all the tanks but I only get a decreasing fuel state. I've gone right up to 34,500ft because I thought maybe I was burning fuel faster than taking it on but there was still no change. I'll keep running some experiments to see if I can work out a trick with the dll. Because I can refuel in F3 and the F6 and the fuel transfer works could this maybe be an issue with FSX: Steam unique to the T5? C.

    Yep the T5.dll was 64.5kb as was the F3.dll.. Here's the contents of the T5 panel.cfg before I edited it to use the "LightningF3!FuelXFR" entry. As I say I've got the refuel.xml too.. C. T5Panel.zip

    I stayed it with for a while this time and I ran out of fuel without taking any on.. Also I tried transferring some fuel from port to starboard and again I didn't see any change in the tanks, could they be linked in some way? C.

    Thanks for the reply Dave, Just followed the steps and replaced T5.dll with the F3 one then changed the relevant entry in the panel.cfg and made sure I had the refuel.xml file in the Lit_T5 folder. I grabbed myself a T5 with a probe then settled down at 21,000ft at 250knots and still no fuel flow.. I only stayed for about ten minutes but the fuel state only got lower and lower.. Have I sprung a leak!? C.

    AAR in Lightning T5

    I've just popped into the T5 for the first time in a while, and try my hand at meeting up with a tanker in prep for a little jaunt over to Akrotiri - for some reason I've never properly tried an AAR in the T5.. I set myself up at 25,000ft and kept between 250-270knots and flipped on the probe light and then selected the AAR switch. I was there for a while and for some reason I wasn't seeing any increase in any of the tanks so I pressed shift-z to see my fuel percentage, I flew like that for half an hour and during that time I didn't take on any fuel. Although I've never used AAR in the T5, I usually use it in the F3 and F6 and I've never had any problems. Just to make sure all was well, I flew the F6 and F3 to check and flew the exact same parameters flying at 25,000ft between 250-270knots with the sim rate at norm and was able to fill the tanks in less than 5 minutes according to the stopwatch.. I know there was some talk about when the T5 was released that were some teething issues with the fuel transfer gauge in P3D but I'm running FSX Steam and I haven't been able to find any similar cases occurring in Steam.. If it can't be fixed then I'll just have to fly to Cyprus in the single seater but I just thought it was odd that it worked for the F3 and F6, but not the T5? C.

    Anyone made use of the F6 painkit?

    Fear not we're still here.. probably just busy flying the Lightning Thanks for the pointers on where to upload, I'm updating a few of them atm but after I'll be sure to upload them to the site!.... I've just edited my paint of XR753 ( really ZF578) at Tangmere so it fits on the F.53, now we'll have some RAF colours on a ground attack Lightning... What could have been! C.

    Anyone made use of the F6 painkit?

    It's been very quiet on here of late!.... I've been trying to package up all the repaints I've done and put them in the Aerosoft download section but I noticed there's no place to upload them as the Lightning doesn't have a repaint section, is there any other way I can upload them, I'd put them all on a thread but that would be one hell of a file and I'd quite like to leave them up.. C. PS. Sorry to bump an old thread

    Talking of repaints, here's the repaint of the T4 prototype XL628. Thanks to @DavidA for providing colour pictures of '628. Hope you like it C. XL628.zip

    I may well give it a go when I can get round to updating the paints I've done. C.
