Mike Stone Saab 340 question

Recommended Posts

Hello AllCan someone tell me why there is no ability in this aircraft to load cargo?When you open the window that allows you to alter fuel and payload weights you can change fuel load but not the payload.The aircraft is balanced okay but cargo weight is always nought. I would like to add cargo.I am funny this way. :( cheers Andy

Hello AndyHelloI MAY? have solved the problem by taking this .....max_number_of_stations=50;Moments of Inertiaempty_weight_pitch_MOI=112837empty_weight_roll_MOI=57662empty_weight_yaw_MOI=129148empty_weight_coupled_MOI=0.0station_load.0=0.000000,0.000000,0.000000,0.000000 from a Freeware flight group's Saab 340 aircraft CFG and pasting it into the MStone version's CFG.I am not sure if this is a good idea or not,but MStone's 340 now has a cargo station to loadcheers AndyCheers to you AndyPS I am still open to suggestions though on this issue

That cfg piece from FFG only adds a single loadpoint to the model which I am guessing the Mike Stone model probably already has. some of the values are also tied to things like the model centerpoint, so importing one aircraft cfg to another is always hit or miss.However, the basic advice is correct. Editing that portion of the cfg allows you to add the cargo station or even customize the passenger and crew area.Something like this would be a very basic tweak to allow changing weight for crew, pax, and cargo: max_number_of_stations=50station_load.0=0.000000,0.000000,0.000000,0.000000, crewstation_load.1=0.000000,0.000000,0.000000,0.000000, paxstation_load.2=0.000000,0.000000,0.000000,0.000000, cargoYou could be more exact by adding the coordinates (x,y,z) of the model where the weight resides. 0,0,0 keeps it at the center point of the model. The first 0 is the weight itself which you can type the default value of whatever you want.

This is a random config from my FFS Saab 340B which probably is similar://-------------Passenger Weights---------------station_load.0 =130, 14.656, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 1Astation_load.1 =0, 14.656, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 1Bstation_load.2 =134, 14.656, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 1Cstation_load.3 =0, 12.208, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 2Astation_load.4 =130, 12.208, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 2Bstation_load.5 =185, 12.208, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 2Cstation_load.6 =172, 9.522, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 3Astation_load.7 =0, 9.522, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 3Bstation_load.8 =114, 9.522, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 3Cstation_load.9 =144, 6.835, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 4Astation_load.10 =210, 6.835, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 4Bstation_load.11 =150, 6.835, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 4Cstation_load.12 =115, 4.149, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 5Astation_load.13 =165, 4.149, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 5Bstation_load.14 =0, 4.149, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 5Cstation_load.15 =0, 1.462, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 6Astation_load.16 =145, 1.462, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 6Bstation_load.17 =167, 1.462, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 6Cstation_load.18 =173, -1.224, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 7Astation_load.19 =112, -1.224, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 7Bstation_load.20 =119, -1.224, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 7Cstation_load.21 =86, -3.910, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 8Astation_load.22 =120, -3.910, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 8Bstation_load.23 =0, -3.910, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 8Cstation_load.24 =168, -6.597, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 9Astation_load.25 =121, -6.597, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 9Bstation_load.26 =155, -6.597, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 9Cstation_load.27 =0, -9.283, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 10Astation_load.28 =144, -9.283, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 10Bstation_load.29 =0, -9.283, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 10Cstation_load.30 =135, -11.961, -2.647, 0.0, SEAT 11Astation_load.31 =0, -11.961, -0.907, 0.0, SEAT 11Bstation_load.32 =0, -11.961, 0.841, 0.0, SEAT 11Cstation_load.33 =114, -11.961, 2.604, 0.0, SEAT 11D//----------Passenger Cargo Weights-------------station_load.34 =25, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-1Astation_load.35 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-1Bstation_load.36 =30, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-1Cstation_load.37 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-2Astation_load.38 =20, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-2Bstation_load.39 =32, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-2Cstation_load.40 =45, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-3Astation_load.41 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-3Bstation_load.42 =24, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-3Cstation_load.43 =15, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-4Astation_load.44 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-4Bstation_load.45 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-4Cstation_load.46 =28, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-5Astation_load.47 =15, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-5Bstation_load.48 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-5Cstation_load.49 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-6Astation_load.50 =32, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-6Bstation_load.51 =10, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-6Cstation_load.52 =21, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-7Astation_load.53 =15, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-7Bstation_load.54 =26, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-7Cstation_load.55 =12, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-8Astation_load.56 =16, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-8Bstation_load.57 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-8Cstation_load.58 =13, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-9Astation_load.59 =13, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-9Bstation_load.60 =22, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-9Cstation_load.61 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-10Astation_load.62 =20, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-10Bstation_load.63 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-10Cstation_load.64 =42, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-11Astation_load.65 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-11Bstation_load.66 =0, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-11Cstation_load.67 =5, -16.848, 0.0, 2.291, CARGO-11D
