Thread: Avatars

    Default Avatars

    I have a Weird pilot avatar on Pitts Special--and I end up in his head looking out through wobbly goggles and eyebrows, I want to remove him. I am trying to remember how to remove avatars from individual planes--as the Pitts Special now puts me in the middle of weirdness and it is most distracting to fly the plane. I would like to remove the avatar from this particular plane. I cannot remember the process and file to alter. I would rather have no avatar and just look at the panel. I am aware you can move forward a long way and get in front of him but then the pilots view is not realistic for the panel. Does anyone have the programming alterations on the relevant files.??

    In the Pitts Special aircraft.cfg, either delete this section:

    pilot = "Pilot_Female_Casual"
    copilot = "Pilot_Male_Casual"
    instructor = "Pilot_Male_Casual"
    pilot_default_animation = "Idle1_PosePropeller"
    copilot_default_animation = "Idle2_PosePropeller"
    pilot_attach_node = "PILOT_0"
    copilot_attach_node = "PILOT_1"

    or comment it out like this:

    ;pilot = "Pilot_Female_Casual"
    ;copilot = "Pilot_Male_Casual"
    ;instructor = "Pilot_Male_Casual"
    ;pilot_default_animation = "Idle1_PosePropeller"
    ;copilot_default_animation = "Idle2_PosePropeller"
    ;pilot_attach_node = "PILOT_0"
    ;copilot_attach_node = "PILOT_1"

    Back up the original file first!
