Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

With Flightgear's Increasing New Capabilities, We now have Dogfight Effects Such as Bullets and Smoke on Hit!

You'll Need the Version of Flightgear with Open Scene Graph, in order to use the Effects!


Setup

You First Need to Bind a key for the Trigger. To do this goto Your Flightgear Data Directory and Edit Keyboard.xml. Add the Following :

 <key n="119">
        <name>w</name>
        <desc>Gun Trigger</desc> 
        <binding>
               <command>property-assign</command>
                      <property>/controls/armament/trigger</property>
                             <value>true</value>
        </binding>
        <mod-up>
        <binding>
               <command>property-assign</command>
                      <property>/controls/armament/trigger</property>
                             <value>false</value>
        </binding> 
        </mod-up>
 </key>

In the Code, we have used w as the trigger. Change it to a Choice of your own!

Compatible Aircraft

All Aircraft in Dave's hangar having Guns have this Feature. Example : Embraer AT-29 Super Tucano, McDonnell F-4N Phantom II, Republic F-105D Thunderchief , McDonnell FGR.2 Phantom II etc...
