Jahre Viking anyone?

Working on something cool? This is where you can tell everyone about it.

Ok.

Purchase your VSF legal download. You will not be disappointed.

Continue the thread.

Your enthusiasm got me off track. My fault but no worries!

Just because I have the demo doesn't mean we can't continue the thread. The 4 Minutes and 30 seconds they give in in-sim play time (excluding the main menu) is more than enough time to test out game changes and add-ons. I can also add add-ons to the simulator and continue playing it. The amount of time you can play in-sim is limited, the number of times you open and can play the simulator is not, you can even resume previous sessions from when your in-sim time ended.

I will have VSF very soon, maybe before the month is over. Stay tuned. ;)

For you tanker guys, try copying these into your VSF Jahre Viking vehicle.cfg, and elements. I suggest you save/rename the old files, "Just in Case." This is fully laden, and if you live long enough, she'll gradually work her way up to about 16.5 kts...takes about an hour!

Copy into Vehicle.cfg (make sure you stop before the :!: :!: :!: ):

Many thanks, SailorJohn. Very much realistic, taking one hour to get up to full speed seems very realistic to the real thing. She had a stopping distance of 5.5 miles at full speed, so this will be interesting to see how long it takes her to stop. ;)

But I have a question, where do I put the elements script at? There doesn't seem to be anything named elements in the VSF folder. :?:

Best regards,

open notepad and past the elements stuff into that, then save it into the Jahre Viking folder and rename it "elements.cfg"

Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me spookymufu, I was confused. :? But I have no idea what that elements thing is supposed to do, but I did what you said and now my ships bounces in the air and give airplane alerts such as stalling. But it's still a boat because of the panel. I don't know what happened, but I removed the elements.cfg and everything works again, so I think I'll go without the elements for now.

Best regards,

Carter

okay, then you'll need to go in-game, save the generic elements file then replace it with SJs information

Spook is correct. First, make sure you replace the contents of the Vehicle.cfg file BEFORE messing with elements. Then run VSF with Jahre Viking ingame. Click Design, Vehicle, then click Elements. Save Elements. Close VSF and replace contents of elements file with mine.

I did step by step of what you said, still the same effect. Floating bouncing ship with alerts. I even tryed loading the elements twice, same thing. But when I remove the elements, everything is normal again. And YES I did replace the contents of the vehicle.cfg first.

Any suggestions?
