Refuel

Hooray! Finally!

This mod allows you to refuel whilst in the air. There are AI controlled tankers that spawn in sandbox (if you don't want them to, get HellFireKoder's Mod Settings Mod and disable them). There is also a mission where you have to refuel.

Parts

There are 3 parts included:
- A drogue, complete with holder and rope. This goes on the tanker.
- A probe (this is just the end bit for if you want to make your own probe)
- An animated retractable probe. This is fancy and retracts on an activation group.

Tankers

There are 3 tankers included:
- The normal one (named "Tanker"): This is a modified version of the bomber from the escort mission. I had to put a lot more fuel in it and upgrade the engines. This is the one that you must refuel from in the mission.
- The rubbish C-130 replica by me (named "Tanker (by WNP78)"). Pretty self-descriptive. Flies at lower altitude and speed and can only be found in sandbox mode.
- The other one, made by LiquidFox (named "Tanker (by LiquidFox)"). A few minor edits were made but it is pretty much this plane. This is the one in the screenshots.

Known Bugs

Yes, there is a bug that I just couldn't squish in time for the release. For some reason, the colouring on the parts included is messed up. They show a very faint version of the first colour in the pallet. Please do not report this bug, you'll just have to live with it for now.

  • BRuthless - testing, suggestions and screenshots (you think that's my flying??)
  • HellFireKoder - not sure really. He probably helped me at some point or another.

Oh, and one last thing:

It's really hard!

    Just a suggestion, but you should try and make a new version with the boom refueling system. Or add it on as a part of the mod.

    @WNP78 That’s unfortunate that there is a bug, but the challenge of successfully connecting was still lots of fun. Thanks anway!

    @Jollyranger4776 I expect so. Well done for connecting, not many people manage. I had an update in the works for it but then I uh... kinda started working with jundroo.

    I have successfully connected with both drogues using the retractable probe, however no refueling actually takes place. Is this a bug?

    Also, can you get me a link to the aircraft that I see in the last (4th) picture (the cockpit image)?

    @WNP78
    Does the tanker spawn automatically when you are low on fuel?

    @P0TET0Z The base model is the Mirage III V.1.0 from SpiritusRaptor Link. I modified it to be easier to control at lower speeds and added WNP's fuel probe. I can upload the modified version if you want it. However this is so old that SR has released a V.2.0 of the Mirage III in the meantime.

    @P0TET0Z the screenshots were taken by @BRuthless and I can't find it on his profile so you'd have to ask him.

    it is sooooooo hard! I tried 8 times with my plane FC-1 which flies perfectly. I bumped into the tanker 5 times and flew past the tanker 3 times. The tanker's nozzle keep swaying left and right.
