The RZ-2 A-Wing has a new installer now! :D

RZ-2Awing_19-02-20.exe

Please, use this topic to give your feedback about the new installer, because it's a prototype.
Is it intuitive enough and easy to use? Can it meet the needs of each player? How can it be improved?
Many thanks to JeremyaFr, who is developing this new installer type!!!

Hello DTM,

May I suggest to minimise the use of abbreviations? I'm quite new here, already read a lot of posts though, and I'm a bit confused by all abbreviations used. By now I know there is (or will be) an Active Cockpit and a Dynamic Cockpit, but it's not all clear to me yet.

On the Select Components screen there is an option RZ-2 A-Wing with Dinamic Cockpit (Mind the type error in Dynamic) and under HUD Options there is a remark (The AC Cockpit must be activated seperatly) I suggest changing that to (The Active Cockpit must be activated separately) and maybe give a short explanation would be very welcome.

For the hardcore XWA Upgrade all these terms and what they mean are well known, but for newcomers it's a bit confusing.

For the rest the installer was clear and worked like a charm, just did a little Skirmish mission in the RZ-2 A-Wing and I love it!

I'd also like to take the opportunity to use my first post here to thank everybody for the briljant work they have done! :2thumbs:

Maybe an option to replace the default A-Wing?

Enjoy :D

St@rkiller, I agree with DTM. The RZ-1 is the default model because it represents the timeline of XWA in general. That will/has probably been updated too with DC project. You can use the Objects hook to replace the RZ-1 with RZ-2 or whatever A-wing variant keeping the same slot stats. Great flexibility there, you can take advantage of it.

I'm a bit late, but just wanted to drop by and say the installer worked flawlessly. Also, the cockpit is just gorgeous.

The RZ-2 has been updated to fix some bugs in the Dynamic Cockpit.
You may download the new version (ver2.1 - 26.04.20) at MTD Industries site and here

That kooks cool. I downloaded it a while back but not had a chance to fly it yet. Looks nicer than the original.
I like the cockpit look.

Newbie question about ships. It used to be you could use a SHP file to import craft into whichever slot you wanted. I assume you can't do it now?
So what do you do if you want to adjust which custom ships go where? Do I need to install and then use Mxvted to adjust manually?

I think ultimately I need some of these new movie ships in my game. Keep it up :)

With this installer, you have a menu with two options:
1. Install the RZ-2 A-wing in slot number 46 (replacing the Mole Miner). If you choose this option, the RZ-2 will be installed automatically with all dat files and the regenegenerating the spec.rci file. You don't need to do others than use the installer.
2. The installer creates a folder with the .shp file and dat files, to be used for a manually installation. If you know what are you doing, you may install manually this craft in your preferred slot.
Get a look at the readme file.

That's great stuff :) Sorry when I posted earlier I was away from my PC so I couldn't take a look.
Thanks for adding "no hud" options to the installers too.
When I get a custom layout of missions and ships in my game then many of them will be from you. Keep up the great creating you do :)

This is freaking awesome.
