Thread: ETO 1.50 has been Released

  1. Default ETO 1.50 has been Released

    The long awaited update for CFS3 Expansion ETO has been released in time for Christmas ETO 1.50

    Free at:http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/...-sim-outhouse/

    The hard work of Rob (Capt. Winters) Stevenson in putting all this together:

    ETO 1.50 aircraft update package 2014.

    Below are the details of which plane sets have been updated fixing various issues, and standardising pilot views. And standardising aircraft display names in game. Contributor List at end of List.

    There have also been several extra aircraft added. See below for details.

    Shared textures
    Replaced duplicate textures that had inconsistent images with the correct image for each texture. Example damage_RAF.dds is found in several locations in game but they had different images painted in causing random changes in game and misaligned textures on aircraft when damaged.

    AI aircraft
    set a selection of AI aircraft to type 1 which allows them to be selected as enemy targets when flying quick combat missions.
    These planes are not meant to be piloted by the player. They have ~ at the start of their name in the aircraft lists, which places them at the end of the line in each country designation.
    They also have a message “AI only not be flown, select as target only” included in the description in game.

    Bf109 aircraft (19 planes modified in total)
    In some of the 109E aircraft there was a mix up with VC model files, this meant that you would see armor plate behind the pilots head when flying from the VC but the outside view would show the model without pilot armor. I went through and placed the correct VC model into each of the 109-E aircraft in game

    some of the E-1 aircraft where using skins that were meant for E-3 aircraft which meant you had the bulges for cannon painted in under the wing on the E-1 but no actual bulges modelled into the wing.

    Standardised VC views (all work with TrakIR)
    1. normal view (close to windscreen)
    2. instrument view
    3. wide view.
    Changed short names to “type – unit- date” format. This means that all the 109 types display in alphabetical order, starting with the E types and going through to the K model.

    Added in historical description for each plane.
    Changed entry and exit dates to match the time frame of the unit depicted by the paint scheme.

    I hate to create a Lazarus thread, but does anyone know of a currently active, free, download for this mod?

    The aussiex site times out without connecting and the only other links I've found (in sim-outhouse forum, where I've never been able to register) are to mediafire, where any attempts at downloading merely get me a popup to "upgrade to Pro".
