Aerofly FS2 Cessna 172 “cold and dark” Modification

Recommended Posts

Author 'Jan-Hendrik Hanuschik'

This is a modification of an aircraft, and is an unofficial product for Aerofly FS2. https://www.aerofly.com/community/filebase/index.php?file/62-jan-s-cessna-172-“cold-and-dark”-aircraft-modification/

Installation

Changed in comparison to older previous versions! This new installation process will result in two Cessna 172s in the selection, one will be this cold and dark mod, the other will leave the original aircraft unchanged. (The mod will be towards the end of the selection list, not next to the original aircraft)

  1. Go to your installation directory of the Aerofly FS 2 in the Steam apps, which is usually at 
  2. “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator”
  3. Open the folder “aircraft” and copy the entire original “c172” folder. (Make sure not to touch the content of this folder during this process!)
  4. Open your documents and open the folder “Aerofly FS 2” (C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Aerofly FS 2) and enter the subdirectory “aircraft”
  5. Delete any previous folder “c172mod”
  6. Now paste the “c172” folder from the clipboard into the currently opened subdirectory “aircaft” and rename it to “c172mod”
  7. In that “c172mod” folder rename the file “c172.tmb” to “c172mod.tmb”
  8. Delete all “.tmd” and “.tmc” files in the “c172mod” folder
  9. Downloading the zip file decompress it in a local directory.
  10. Copy all contained files and paste them in the “c172mod” folder

This latest update of the Cold & Dark C172 gave me a lower performance from the engine. I can barely get past the 2100 RPM ( ? )

 


Use your flight simulators with a well defined purpose...

Don't expect them to be "perfect" or to fully cover all aspects of simulated flight...

Try to enjoy it instead of stressing...

On Jan's website for cold and dark, he notes that:

Quote

Work in progess
Not finalized are performance data like cruise and climb speeds,
engine data in general, mixture leaning not implemented.

I know you dig around in the files, so maybe you can find some parameters to change, or ask Jan over at the Ipacs forum.  :emu_melk:

Also, here is Jan's personal site for the mod: https://www.aerofly-sim.de/download/download-aeroflyfs2/af2_c172_download
