AN-2 v2.3 air file
« on: June 24, 2017, 11:42:16 AM »
Does anyone know where I can get the v2.3 air file for the SibWings AN-2?  There is no download link for it on the SibWings site.

Will the Misty repaint work with the v2.1 air file if I can't get the 2.3? 

Thanks for any assistance with this.

Hello RichardCYQG,
     Yes.  The repaint should work across versions.  ;)

     I don't know what "versions" I have.  My AIR files just say AN-2V.AIR or AN-2T.AIR and are dated @2003.  :-\  Does Sibwings have a forum you could interact with?   ???

     Have you rerun the installer?  That should produce the air file, right?  ???

 8) The Sib Wings forum seems to be dead.

The SibWings retail site is still up and running, but there are no updates listed on that site.   The support forums are dead and when I run the updater program for the AN2, it also comes up with nothing.

The air file I have that came with the aircraft installer is Antonov_AN2_v2.1.air and is dated 6/5/2013.

I imagine that the 2.2 and 2.3 air files are just tweaking some of the settings inside the air file itself that controls how the model reacts.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that repaints are affected by data changes inside the air file.  I just have to make sure that all the repaints reflect the same air file name in the model line of the aircraft.cfg file that represents each repaint.

If anyone can send me an updated version of the air file, pm me and I'll send my email.  I don't think that would violate any copyright rules as I do have the complete model, just not the air update.

Thanks, for any assistance

Rick

What are the changes made in the air file in the 2.2 and 2.3 AN-2.  I have that plane also and would like to know if I need that update.  My version I cannot use the mouse to move the mixture control.  I have to use the keyboard.  How does yours work.  I you dont mind I would also like the updates as I cannot find them on their website.
