  • Hi,


    1. Download and unzip the SDK package

    2. Open the folder \aerofly_fs_2_aircraft_converter and run the program aerofly_fs_2_aircraft_converter_x64_installer_2017-11-07.exe.

    3. Unzip the DR400 package to any place.

    4. Selct the folder and right click: Aerofly FS 2 Aircraft Converter.


    Enjoy aerofly

  • I really wonder though why the file is a rar file...Why not a zip? I refuse to install a program on my clean pc just to unrar this file. Make it a zip, please.

  • Hi, I downloaded the sdk tools and dr400 plane, the conversion went fine, pasted it in aircraft folder, it shows in game menu, but when I click to fly it starts loading the plane and then I guess it freezes (each time), so I have to restart the game. It just doesn't pass the dr400 loading screen, so flying is obviously impossible. Anyone has any idea what could be the problem? Thnx

    Hi welcome to our forum.

    Since the last update the DR400 is not working. We know this and will be updating it shortly.

  • Hi, this is a work around for DR400 :


    Go to the new DR400 folder created by the converter in document folder and find dr400.tmd


    edit and change this part with texts below :


    // propeller

    <[propellergraphics][Propeller][]

    <[uint32][PositionID][Fuselage.R]>

    <[uint32][OrientationID][Fuselage.Q]>

    <[uint32][AngleID] [Propeller.RotationAngle]>

    <[uint32][RotationSpeedID] [Propeller.RotationSpeed]>

    <[uint32][DamageID] [Propeller.Damaged]>

    <[string8][GeometryList][ PropellerDisk ]>

    <[tmvector3d][Axis][1.0 0.0 0.0]>

    <[tmvector3d][Pivot][1.970000 0.000230 0.532250]>

    <[uint32][BladeNumber][2]>

    <[float64][Radius][0.955575]>

    <[float64][BladePitch][-0.5]>

    <[float64][RotationSpeedFade][10.0]>

    you lose propeller and cone in 3D model but inside the plane you 'll see nothing and you'll fly with DR400 :-)

  • Hello Coromon,

    your solution works perfect, thank you very much.


    For better clarity I put your code into a code format.


    Cheers,

  • the only problem is that in that fix, the propeller, blades and spinner are not present....


    Please dear Ipacs, could you fix this and give us back this nice little single aircraft ? Thx
