Dassault Mirage 5 Old Version convert 2D panel to 3D

Postby openflight » Fri May 29, 2020 1:20 am

Hi

The topic refers to the old M Duex Mille as they say:

http://wiki.flightgear.org/Dassault_Mirage_2000

Not to be confused with Dassault Mirage 2000-5.

Does anyone know how to remove the 2D cockpit view and allow the 3D cockpit view to be shown? All I get is clear view of the runway. The model loads and runs, and I can fly with the HUD.

Of course I would like to fly the latest version, but I have some problem with missiles loading in FG 2018 and also in FG 2.0 Windows version, so I would like to modify the old Mirage 2000 to run with those or with Flight Gear One https://sites.google.com/site/flightgearone/home, which I am now enjoying flying the Mirage 5 in.

BTW the biggest inaccuracy is the canopy -it extends further forward than it should.

OK so after trying deleting everything I finally installed the Mirage 2000 model into a Mirage III folder - substituted the 3D model only, even renamed in mirageIII.ac and it loaded as shown. I had to move the view point a few metres ahead but it looks passable.

What is the code that disables the 3D interior from showing when a 2D panel is used? I looked at all the files and all the lines of code.

Anyway here is my page for the m2000 early version https://sites.google.com/site/flightgearone/the-mirage-2000-early-version

This was solved by downloading and installing a new copy of the model, installing the F-16 model because the panel from the F-16 is used here, and by adding the views.xml from the Mirage III into the m2000 models folder and including it in the -set file . Details are here:
