That's too bad. Well, better not keep to many things going the same time. :| Of course you could always pick this one up again half a year from know. :wink:

Wow... You did a great job so far. Maybe you shouldn't just give up because you have some trouble with some instruments? After all this forum here is (partly) made to help people like you solve those problems.
Anyway although I don't have very much time around, I would volunteer for continuing this project, if nobody else does.

Thanks B, it's one of the esential aircrafts and it would be a shame to let it go. If you need help with the file structure or anything else just ask. :)

I've managed to lay my hands on MiG-21 once again...

Rudder issue is now completely fixed, GSh-23 gun functionality is added (e-key), fuel tank release changed (f-key).
In next few days I'll try to make some animations smoother and to rearange the instruments in cockpit. New liveries are also on the way.

For authentic-looking Russian/Cyrillic instruments, you might want to have a look at the Yak-40 or the An-2 both of which can be found through google searches. :)

I hope that helped!

Thanks Ace, I've already managed to aquire original MiG-21 flight manual on my language with some nice sketches of instruments. Good thing is that I can read cyrilic and the bad that I'm a complete newbie in making instruments for FG. :)

I'll look into it and fix it as soon as possible. Probably a typo or wrong path in /Models/MiG-21bis.xml:(

I wanted to make some of african liveries for it, I really liked the Angolan AF, Somalian is quite simmilar. Nice roundel. :)

Yes they are, ours are still operational. I've read that Somalia bought some Su-27 few years ago?

If you want a quick solution open the MiG-21bis.xml file in /MiG-21bis/Models with Notepad, find and delete entire paragraphs of code containing "tyre-smoke" (3 of them)... They're just for eyecandy:)
