I'm looking for the best way to hang visible bombs on the planes for the Real Plane mod. I can either set them up as

1) ObjectTemplate.addFireArmsPosition

or

2) ObjectTemplate.create FireArms

In 1) you get a visible bomb, but the first time you trigger it, it NEVER returns, even if you have a bunch more in your magazine or do a reload.

In 2) you get a visible bomb, but it is always visible, even when you are out of bombs (like the Torpedo planes - BTW, you can have torpedo planes that drop multiple torpedos at once in a spread heh,heh)

Anyone know a way to have the bombs only show up if they are in the agazine? This might be too much to ask of the game engine....

Forgot to say why I want to do this - If I'm on the ground and a plane is coming at me, I want to be able to tell if it's packing any heat or not.

When you use the first option, and make 15 times 2 round magazines, the bombs reappear after reload.

Thanks for that - it works with 2 x 2 also. For some reason, when you set it to 2 x 1, the bombs will reload, but aren't visible after the first set are dropped. Maybe if I had two separate bomb dummys, instead of shared, you could then have one bomb on each wing that visibly reloads...

This has to be a mod, so it won't work on a normal server....

Well, I tried the first method with two separate bomb dummys, but I ended up with the same thing as option #2 above. The bombs are always visible, even when you don't have any. So what happens is I'm using two types of bombs for the Stuka, 1 large fuselage bomb, and 4 smaller ones in the wingracks. The wing bombs will appear and disappear correctly according to what is in the magazine (when set at 4x2), but the center bomb always appears, whether one is loaded or not (set at 1x2 or whatever). Oh well....
