A

aileronCoef

Graph array, defines the influence of the ailerons control surface depending on the current speed. Each position in the array is a percentage of maxSpeed. First value is 0% of maxSpeed, last value is 150% of maxSpeed.

aileronCoef[] = {0,0.5,1,1.2,1.4,1.5,1.6}; // V-44 Blackfish
aileronCoef[] = {0.6,1,0.95,0.9,0.85,0.8,0.75}; // A-164 Wipeout

Defines the "braking power" / friction of airbrakes.

Boolean

Integrer

altFullForce = 2000;	// V-44 Blackfish

altNoForce

Altitude value in meters at which the aircraft loses its thrust influence completely. Below this altitude, thrust influence is progressively lost as soon as altFullForce is reached. Simulates effect of thinning air on engine performace.

Integrer

altNoForce = 7500; 	// Caesar BTT
altNoForce = 7000;	// V-44 Blackfish

angleOfIndicence

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angle_of_incidence_(aerodynamics) Relates to envelope, affects lift properties and ev. view from the cabin.

Float

Boolean

Boolean

cargoCanEject = 1; 	// Cargo can eject
cargoCanEject = 0;	// Cargo cannot eject

D

draconicForceXCoef

Force that affects the horizontal (X in model space) component of its velocity vector. Low values together with strong rudder authority will lead to skidding.

Float

draconicForceXCoef = 7.4;	// A-164 Wipeout
draconicForceXCoef = 7.5; 	// Caesar BTT
draconicForceXCoef = 15;	// V-44 Blackfish

draconicForceYCoef

Force that affects the vertical (Y in model space) component of its velocity vector. Bigger values allow for faster and sharper elevator turns.

Float

draconicForceYCoef = 3;		// A-164 Wipeout
draconicForceYCoef = 1; 	// Caesar BTT
draconicForceYCoef = 0.5;	// V-44 Blackfish

draconicForceZCoef

Force that affects the forward (Z in model space) component of its velocity vector. Float

draconicForceZCoef = 0.1;	// A-164 Wipeout
draconicForceZCoef = 2.5;	// Caesar BTT
draconicForceZCoef = 0.2;	// V-44 Blackfish

draconicTorqueXCoef

Force that keeps the airplane aligned according to a horizontal (X in model space) component of its velocity vector (model space). Makes the airplane turn in banked flight, affects how fast lower wing in a knife flight drops. Bigger values also need to be balanced by a stronger rudder authority and draconicForceXCoef, otherwise the player won't be able to control the airplane in yaw. Good balancing with rudderCoef and draconicForceXCoef will allow good yaw authority in leveled flight, but disallow a sustained knife flight or too good turning just by using the rudder.

Can be also defined as an array.

Float

draconicTorqueXCoef = 1.2;	// A-164 Wipeout
draconicTorqueXCoef[] =        // Caesar BTT
{
    14.0,    // 0 %
    12.0,    // 15 %
    11.2,    // 30 %
    10.6,    // 45 %
    9.9,    // 60 %
    9.6,    // 75 %
    9.7,    // 90 %
    10.5,    // 105 %
    11.0,    // 120 %
    11.5,    // 135 %
    12.0     // 150 %
};

draconicTorqueYCoef

Force that keeps the airplane aligned according to a vertical (Y in model space) component of its velocity vector. Makes the airplane go nose up when climbing and nose down when there's not enough lift. Should be strong enough to make the aircraft go nose down in stall conditions as Arma does not simulate stalling of wings individually. Bigger values also need to be balanced by a stronger elevator authority and draconicForceYCoef, otherwise the player won't be able to control the airplane in pitch.

Can be also defined as an array.

Float

draconicTorqueYCoef = 3;	// A-164 Wipeout
draconicTorqueYCoef[] =        // Caesar BTT

    4.0,    // 30 %
    3.3,    // 45 %
    3.0,    // 60 %
    2.7,    // 75 %
    2.5,    // 90 %
    2.3,    // 105 %
    2.1,    // 120 %
    1.9,    // 135 %
