Began work on the folding animation a lot more complex then originally planned but it is coming along

N-SCOT is in the process of making incredible liveries for this airframe and helping me out greatly, the release date seems to be approaching 8)

I'll take a look! ... tomorrow after school, if I don't have a lot of homework or too debilitating of a need for sleep...

Okay, so I get spammed by this message (FCS integration issue):
Code: Select all
Nasal runtime error: nil used in numeric context
  at /Users/philosopher/Documents/FlightGear/Aircraft/SH-60/Nasal/helicopter-fcs.nas, line 663
  called from: /Users/philosopher/Documents/FlightGear/Aircraft/SH-60/Nasal/helicopter-fcs.nas, line 788
  called from: /Users/philosopher/Documents/FlightGear/fgdata/Nasal/globals.nas, line 102

Rudder appears to be backwards (the tailwheel goes the wrong way in addition to the rudder not working in-flight), pushback doesn't work, etc. :shock:

Currently this is what I have for the tail:
Code: Select all

      <y>  0.000 </y>
      <z>  0.000 </z>

<animation>

    <property>instrumentation/doors/wings/position-norm</property>
    <factor> 85 </factor>

      <y>  0.000 </y>
      <z>  0.000 </z>
    </axis>
  </animation> 


The problem with this is that tailrotorcomplet is specified in a sub-model file, which is then offset, and for some reason the above animation is transformed to use those coordinates instead of using global coords. :P I think that might be a bug, but there's nothing I can do about it. I might be able to work around it, though, given enough calculation... ~goes off into a cave with a calculator~

I look forward to the FCS fix! ;)

I'll take a look the fcs works great for me in both 2.10 and 2.12 but I'll see if I can recreate your problem.... Did you install the whole file?

if you look closely that isn't the SH-60 Bravo, it looks to be the executive class MH-60s. so in this case no
