This mod ( formerly the "no fbw mod" ) retunes the flight controls and aerodynamics in the DC Designs F-14A & F-14B to create a more authentic flight experience, while also adding a few Q.O.L. changes.

 

F-14 Tomcat Improvement Mod

*Description*

The F14 Tomcat is one of the most well known military planes in the world. The DC designs version however is a bit lackluster, as it has issues in its controls, its engines and its general flight characteristics. So I decided to try and make it something I would fly more, by updating the flight model and aircraft handling with some NATOPS data. The intent is to simply make the Tomcat feel like it should and improve its flight dynamics. It is by no means perfect, as I am no expert. However the aircraft now flies extremely naturally and feels very much like the Tomcat should.

 

*Features*

Improved flight dynamics - All changes based on NATOPS data. No more 9G shenanigans

Enables weapons for MS store versions - Now you can load out your airplane with full pylons and hardpoints

Permanently removes interior Pilot and Mask - No more janky pilot model getting in the way while using the interior views.

Adds Two additional variants to chose from ;

 A+ variant - Initial "testbed" A model airframe with the F110 engines prior to the full B class redesignation and complete upgrade package. This model retains the glove vanes for 7+G manouvers at mach speeds.

 D variant - The updated flight model combined with the Tomcats default fly by wire controls. Intended for the fbw system to be tuned properly at a later date.

 

*Compatability*

Compatible with both 3rd party and MS store versions of the aircraft.

 

*Instalation*

Extract the mod and place in your community folder, same as any other mod

Killer mod. You've made the plane fun to fly again.

Hello. He's better for catapulting?

Because my F14 refuses to take off with the catapult even if I pull out the catapult bar.

Looks like this mod might now be defunct, as DC seem to have disabled FBW as standard with its recent update. Currently checking changes and testing. Sorry for the inconvienence, I only just got the update today.

Wild they used a FBW profile on a legacy gen fighter, good work making it more authentic!

Roadmap
Ces articles sont actuellement sur la liste et seront traités prochainement !
Backlog
Suggestion, bugs et idées pour l'avenir.

  • Version 2.3 February 03, 2023

    Fixed bug with stock wing geometry
    Retuned aerodynamics slightly to compensate
    Retuned roll characteristics to reduce high altitude instability
    Tweaked pitch response and max input per variant
    Adjusted engine response and power curve per variant
    Recalculated MOI's per variant
    Renamed liveries to standardised system
    Sorted Liveries per VF number
    Added VF Nicknames to A, A+ and B variants
    Adjusted liveries for A+ to historically accurate VF's
    Tweaked D variants FBW systems and flight model (still not happy with it)

  • Version 2.2 January 26, 2023

    Fully updated mod to DC Designs F-14 Tomcat version 1.07
    Fixed issue causing wheels to sometimes fail to retract
    Retuned stall characteristics to reduce stall "flipping" issue
    Removed mod files that were no longer needed
    Fixed some typo's in A model aircraft.cfg file

  • Version 2.1.1 Hotfix January 25, 2023

    Hotfix patch for DC Designs Tomcat version 1.07

  • Version 2.1 January 25, 2023

    Added new variants - A+ variant / D variant *
    Improved accuracy of engine and drag settings for each variant
    Disabled extrenous FBW settings for each starting state ( ramp / runway etc)
    Tweaked trim settings across variants


    * Variants
    A+ is an A varaint airframe with a B variant engine, prior to the full B class upgrade package.
    D is a Fly by Wire variant using my adjusted flight model and default fbw settings

  • Version 2.0 January 21, 2023

    Bug Fixes
    ----------
    Reverted to stock engines - New custom engines need much more development and testing
    Reverted to stock throttle - Custom DCD throttle data broke interior throttle interactions, sorry my bad!
    (the above change removes afterburner keybind)

    Improvements
    ---------------
    Adjusted taxing turning response - ( Normalised to game "standard" )
    Throttles set to 75+% MIL / 80% Ab / 100% Max Ab with corresponding effects
    Retuned FMA to match throttle levels ( FMA otherwise unchanged )
    Disabled Pilot interior model ( exterior unaffected )
    Disabled Pilot Mask Interior model ( exterior unaffected )
    Improved flight dynamics ( small reduction in lift, small tweak to drag, small tweak to controls )
    Improved trim control ( less agressive response )

  • Version 1.5 January 16, 2023

    Reverted afterburner changes to stock - 90% Throttle etc. *

    Further refinements to aircraft handling
    Further refinements to the flight model
    Further refinements to engine balance
    Further refinemnents in top speeds ( MACH 2.2 )
    Improved G factors to 7G ( +/- 0.5g )
    Added afterburner keybind toggle ( B Variant )
    Small improvement in throttle response



    * Unfortunately the avionics are tied together with the throttle like an airbus, so properly editing the throttle requires altering the FMC, FMA, HUD etc.

Foire aux questions

Des questions ? Trouvez votre solution ici.

Why did you change the name?

DC designs updated the Tomcat to remove fly by wire in version 1.07. Hence the name change.

So is this mod dead then?

No, not quite. Although there is no fbw anymore, the aircraft still presents "issues" that I thought I would keep working on.

Is there a full list of the changes made?

There is a change log with each update to make sure you know what I have worked on.
