as the title says i have an issue where the shuttle enters the hangar of a frigate with its wings open despite exiting another hangar with them closed and subsequently opening them. i am seeing this particularly in 1B3M6B 'rendezvous with the defector'. i could be misremembering but i seem to recall seeing shuttles close their wings when entering a hangar. could be something that i messed up myself somehow. any help is greatly appreciated

I have an idea why that might happen BUT I've seen some B-wings close their Sfoils and some that don't. It can be random.
It doesn't cause any damage does it?

Put this file in the Flightmodels file and see if it changes. Lemme know.
There are changes coming to the Nebulon B for 2022 so it might help anyway.

i appreciate the quick reply. that didnt work for me unfortunately. i was using the carrier version of the frigate but i switched to the medical version to try that ini though the shuttle behavior was the same. there is no damage. the shuttle disappears just as it would touch the frigate. i tried switching the frigate to an mc40 using a mission editor but that didnt help. i checked the mc40 ini and all the frigate version inis and they all contained these lines:
[HangarObjects]
FoldOutside = 1 ;Ships landing close S-foils when they reach the OutsideHangar Hardpoint

also in the shuttle.ini i found this:
;S-Foil Sound is defined in Sfx_SFoil.Lst. SFoilShuttle.wav
AllowFireWhenSFoilsAreClosed = 0 ;0 = No. 1 = Yes
CloseSFoilsInHyperspace = 0 ;0 = No. 1 = Yes
ParkOrderSFoilsClosed = 0 ;0 = No. 1 = Yes
SFoilsAnimationSpeed = 1 ;1 = Default. Higher # slows animation

i tried changing ParkOrderSFoilsClosed to 1 but that didnt have any discernible effect either. strange that the wings are closed when exiting the hangar of the station and they open afterward but when landing the wings just stay locked open.

Edit: i also tried switching the frigate to the same platform type 6 it launched from. same thing.
out of curiosity do you see the wings close when they enter the hangar?

Edit2: i also tried changing hook_sfoils.cfg and hooks.ini CloseSFoilsAndOpenLandingGearsBeforeEnterHangar to 1. that didnt help either.
also tried editing the shuttle.ini to increase the speed of the sfoils closing and that didnt make any difference either.
also checked default.ini hangar options and it also has FoldOutside = 1
i also tried switching the shuttle between the rebel and imperial pilot versions

Edit3: i realize now that there was no need to switch my frigate from carrier to medical. i figured out that an ini in the missions folder was causing a different opt/ini to load for the frigate and shuttle. i removed those lines from the mission ini file and retried some things such as switching between rebel and imperial shuttles and increasing the speed of the sfoils closing. no dice.
i was able to run an older build of xwau and in the same mission the shuttle closed its wings when entering the frigate as it should.
i tried copying the old shuttle opt/ini file to my current xwa build but it didnt solve the issue.
i tried copying the frigate opt/ini from the old build. that didnt do it.
i tried loading the older sfoils hook and that didnt fix it either.
considering that the wings behaved as they should in the old build but the old sfoils hook or opt/ini files didnt fix the problem i guess its something else? im out of ideas.

Edit4: tried setting shuttle.ini to CloseSFoilsInHyperspace = 1 and while the shuttle did close its wings to enter hyperspace it kept them open to enter the hangar.

im not totally sure. it says 2020 on it. i wanna say update 4. the frigate variants all look the same but the shuttle was different. im thinking there is a config file or hook causing this malfunction but its over my head.

edit: better late than never. i'm using windows 10, steam version, xwau mega>tftc>update 5>5.1 beta. this is a fresh install i did recently. also just for the record whenever i change a file i copy the file first then restore the original afterward. i think im going to do a completely fresh install and see if i still have this issue

edit2: so i did a fresh install and decided to try b3m6 with only the mega patch and nothing else installed not even update 5.... the wings did not fold. now i am really stumped. i guess ill do update 5 and see how frustrated i can get.

edit3: so update 5 was no different. i then deleted everything yet again and did another fresh download from steam. this time i played the mission on completely stock xwa with no mods of any kind. what a throwback. the wings did fold though.

edit4: i tried another fresh install>mega>tftc. nope. then i tried update 5>5.1. nope. still enters the hangar without closing the wings

edit5: trying to figure out what this old build is. it seems mostly up to date. it has the older tie fighters with 2d pilots, the shuttle doesnt have the prominent blinking lights and it has the older menu images. it does have active cockpits and landing gear.

edit6: tried using the medical frigate ini you provided with my fresh install. still the shuttle doesnt close its wings. on a side note, when exiting the platform6 the shuttles opening their wings clip on the end of the platform. if the sfoil animation was slower for the shuttle it would be partially remedied

edit7: tried using files from the old build again. still doesnt help. tried setting FoldOutside = 0 and 2 and no. tried removing the inis for the ships completely. no. i got a laugh out of that one though. the shuttle launched with its side wings open and top wing sideways and then the top wing straightened out like sfoils opening. it did not turn its top wing back sideways to enter the frigate though

edit8: found an old installer for darksabers shuttle v3. i tried installing it over xwau 5.1 and predictably it did not work. broke lots of stuff though

at this point after doing several totally clean installs and trying everything i can think of i am convinced that this is not something i can resolve. it would be nice if someone would run b3m6 to confirm that this is not only me though. i have run that mission probably 200 times in the last 3 days. regardless if this is ever addressed, thanks to everyone involved for all the hard work over the years. it is crazy how fun this game still is thanks to you all.

I just did a quick test flight (XWAU update 5.0 + Beta 5.1 + latest hooks) and my observations for B3M6 are that 1. FRG Redemption does not actually have a hangar, and 2. Shuttle AA-23’s wings do not fold when it enters the non-existent hangar.

thank you so much. i really appreciate that. there is a configuration file in the missions folder that for this mission forces the game to load the hangarless medical version of the frigate regardless of which one is installed. weird choice for a mission that involves a large craft entering the frigate in my opinion. however for me the shuttle does not close its wings when entering other hangars either. in older versions of the xwa upgrade and in the original game the wings folded.
i think it is safe to conclude that somewhere along the way whatever made the shuttle close its sfoils when entering a hangar got broken

I got curious and tested B5M5, since that’s one mission with a shuttle entering a hangar at the end. SHU Merte actually closed its wings when entering the Liberty’s hangar, so I’m wondering what is going on with B3M6.

wow thank you for doing that. i used allied to edit b3m6 replacing the frigate with a platform6 and a calamari cruiser lite and other frigates all produced the same result, entering with open wings. on the next mission b3m7 when the shuttle reached the isd it entered the hangar with open wings as well for me.

edit: just tried editing b3m6 and replacing the frigate with a liberty cruiser. aa23 still entered with open wings. im gonna check b5m5. im wondering now if maybe it has something to do with the shuttle being imperial entering a rebel hangar. but the shuttle is imperial entering the imperial star destroyer hangar in b3m7 and it doesnt close its wings either so probably not.

edit2: tried b5m5 and indeed the shuttle folds its wings

edit3: so i tried editing the opt for the frigate. i moved the 'close to hangar' hardpoint much further away from the ship. that did not help but it made for a very suspenseful landing

edit4: b4m6 same problem

B6M1
shuttle jade leaves dreadnaught tal'cara with closed s-foils and immediately opens them then enters liberty with open s-foils.

I've seen very random results with S-foils. Seen X-wings fly in with S-foils open and then a B-wing behind it close them.
So I think the game is very fussy probably.

@JeremyaFr do you know if there's any bugs in ships S-foils closing on entering hangars?
To my knowledge this code is present in the correct ships INI files.

Code: Select all

FoldOutside = 1			;Ships landing close S-foils when they reach the OutsideHangar Hardpoint

Hello,
Can you post the content of the mission ini file, the ini file of the craft with sfoils, the ini file of the craft/station where to land?

so far it has been many missions and many cases. i think the only confirmed case of a shuttle closing its sfoils when entering a hangar is b5m5 but i will give you b6m1.

Are the InsideHangar and OutsideHangar hardpoints in the OPT at the right place?

i am not even sure how to answer that but the shuttle closes its sfoils entering the same opt on b5m5.

Change the Calamari Winged ini line to this. See if that helps but it shouldn't matter.

Code: Select all

FoldOutside = 1
;Ships landing close S-foils when they reach the OutsideHangar Hardpoint
So that the ; line is on the line below and not next to 1

@Leofus it says FoldOutside = 1 ;Ships landing close S-foils when they reach the OutsideHangar Hardpoint

Just make it FoldOutside = 1
Sometimes a ; at the end can cause issues but I did test this.

Hello,
When this kind of bugs appears, the cause can be:
- a bug in a hook (sfoils hook or hangars hook)
- a bug in an OPT file (hardpoints)
- a bug in craft ini file
- a bug in mission ini file
- a bug in mission tie file

im on a clean install so whatever is causing the problem is part of the xwau. it worked on an older version of the upgrade i had backed up and the stock game. i have spent hours trying everything i can think of to troubleshoot it with no success. i have sloppily documented my efforts in this thread. if i could think of something else to try i would do it.

B6M5 the shuttle tyderium closes its wings when entering the liberty.
it would be cool if the shuttles and landing craft had their sfoils closed while in the 'hold steady' and 'wait' orders so they arent all sitting in the hangar with their wings open. i set the landing craft and shuttles to 'ParkOrderSFoilsClosed = 1' and tried to edit the mission to switch them all to 'park' and their s-foils are closed but for some reason they all keep moving from their places even if i set the throttle to 0. i even tried setting every order and waypoint to the same spot with throttle 0 but they still move for some reason

edit: to clarify i didnt set all the shuttles to the same spot. each shuttle had its own spot and had every waypoint set to their respective spot but they all kept moving to the middle of the hangar in a big jumbled mess. i think they might be moving to x:0 y:0 z:0 for some reason

We've had issues where when parked they don't open sfoils when they start moving off.
All down to mission waypoints or something.
So due to that it's not been enabled fully

i probably shouldnt even comment on that but what if every other order type was manually set to open sfoils in the hook?

edit: another way b6m5 could be (partially) fixed would be to make a configurator version of the landing craft and shuttle with permanently closed sfoils and use it for every other craft in the hangar besides tyderium. i don't know how to edit hooks or edit the opt or ini or whatever is necessary to make a shuttle with permanently closed sfoils. of course this would leave the tyderium sitting with open wings but i would consider that an improvement
