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.

Credits

  • 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!

    Does this mod still work?

    Also I wish it was easier to do this, like having both the drogue and probe attracted to each other, or having a button to click (like with the catapult thing on the carrier) which would attach you to the drogue from the probe when you are close enough.

    @WNP78 so we can fly longer and to make the game better can you change the coding of this and implant it as an update I really think the community will love it if it was made as an in game feature no different to the XML and the fine tuner.

    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!
