Shockwave 3D Lights config for PT Il-62

Hi,

I would like to share my custom made Shockwave configs for PT Il-62M. The first one includes wing tip navigation lights but due to wing flex there are some placement issues when airborne with the config. Experiment yourself and decide which version to use.

Please note that Opensky_beacon.fx from Project Opensky is needed. However, you may want to use default beacons so I have included the file names after the punctuations.

Code:

[lights]
light.0 = 2, 24.15, 0.20, -5.72, Opensky_beacon //fx_beaconb
light.1 = 2, -75.70, 0.10, 28.55, Opensky_beacon //fx_beaconh
light.2 = 4, 79.9, 0.90, 5.10, fx_vclight
light.3 = 6, 73.95, 00.20, -6.00, fx_shockwave_landing_light_double_small
light.4 = 5, 73.95, 00.20, -6.00, fx_shockwave_landing_light_double_small
light.5 = 5, 80.95, -4.33, -1.95, fx_shockwave_landing_light_narrow
light.6 = 5, 81.10, 3.70, -3.35, fx_shockwave_landing_light_narrow
light.7 = 5, -8.40, -39.50, -2.40, fx_shockwave_landing_light_tail
light.8 = 5, -8.70, 39.85, -2.40, fx_shockwave_landing_light_tail
light.9 = 3, -31.80, -69.65, -0.96, fx_shockwave_navred
light.10 = 3, -31.90, 70.00, -0.67, fx_shockwave_navgre
light.11 = 1, -38.77, -69.31, -0.86, fx_shockwave_navwhi
light.12 = 1, -38.90, 69.65, -0.59, fx_shockwave_navwhi

[Window00]
...
gaugexx=shockwave_lights!SW Lights_gear, 1,1,1,1
gaugexx=shockwave_lights!SW Lights_taxi_gear, 1,1,1,1



A version with wing tip navigation lights removed:

Code:

[lights]
light.0 = 2, 24.15, 0.20, -5.72, Opensky_beacon //fx_beaconb
light.1 = 2, -75.70, 0.10, 28.55, Opensky_beacon //fx_beaconh
light.2 = 4, 79.9, 0.90, 5.10, fx_vclight
light.3 = 6, 73.95, 00.20, -6.00, fx_shockwave_landing_light_double_small
light.4 = 5, 73.95, 00.20, -6.00, fx_shockwave_landing_light_double_small
light.5 = 5, 80.95, -4.33, -1.95, fx_shockwave_landing_light_narrow
light.6 = 5, 81.10, 3.70, -3.35, fx_shockwave_landing_light_narrow
light.7 = 5, -8.40, -39.50, -2.40, fx_shockwave_landing_light_tail
light.8 = 5, -8.70, 39.85, -2.40, fx_shockwave_landing_light_tail

[Window00]
...
gaugexx=shockwave_lights!SW Lights_gear, 1,1,1,1
gaugexx=shockwave_lights!SW Lights_taxi_gear, 1,1,1,1

Can you post a screenshot about how it looks on the plane with these settings? Улыбка

Hi friends:

Among our community the IL-62 was for a long time a little disregarded. But it deserves more intrerest. Its a wonderful simplane.

Walter

HiBiesse

Wonderful screenshots and the shockwave lights look good, even the original ones are not bad at all.

But as you are taking off from MUHA in a Cubana it reminds me one thing:
Seems you had selected intermediate flaps (15 or 20 deg) for the takeoff.
Exactly that did the unhappy crew of Cubana de Aviación Flight 9646 on 3rd of september 1989 with strong gusty winds up to 40 km/h nearby. The airplane hit a downdraft after takeoff and crashed. Everybody on board and 45 people on the ground perished (171 in total). The investigation blamed the crew for taking off while clear signs of the presence of windshear existed which is forbidden by the IL-62 M flightmanual and selecting only 15 deg of flaps which is not a published procedure for that aircraft because it reduces the climb capability for the initial climb.
The T.O. in the IL 62 should always be done at 30 deg (FULL DOWN) of flaps. As we are here at the PT forum one should mention that, its not for sake of critizism!

Хитрый

Kind regards

Walter

Thanks for the tips Walter! 30 degrees of flaps sounds exaggerated for a person accustomed to western planes, but it was indeed stated in the Il-62 manual also. Gotta remember that next time!

You are right with the reminder to western aircraft. Western Jets never take off with full flaps and on many airplanes the crews are even encourged to use only around 5 deg at takeoff, not so here. The unhappy Cubana captain had a lot of experience even in the IL 62 (more than 4000 hours). But seems his training in type did not mention strongly enough the important point of not reducing flaps for a dificult T.O. in the IL62. But also seems that he reduced flaps during the T.O. roll or intial climb in a desparete attempt to climb out when it became clear that the storm was much worse than anticipated.

Kind regards

Walter
