The last set of parts is posted (somewhere) here, but it's at least two years old. I know we've started an update on two occasions, but "other stuff" got in the way of completing it.

Maybe that should be a project for us this year...

When the part is a continuous shape, this is not so difficult, but if you 'break' the continuity, like blending an ogive with a conical, or in the case of the BC-760, which is a BC-1052 ogive forward section with a trailing BR-710, you cannot get a single Rocksim component. It takes multiple 'building blocks' to get those complex items.

Bad thing, it doesn't fit into a "subassembly" that easily, either.

Not complaining at all. I got a round Bezier on the last cone and I am more than happy.

Carl,

Now that NARAM is over, any chance we'll see a "BUY IT" addition to the Nose Cone Designer list?

I need a BT-80 upscale of the PNC-50Y which is listed, I just need a "button" to click.

Default NC Designer Page Issue

Carl,

I'm trying to add a new cone shape, which requires additional sections. The page seems to be fighting me, not giving me any means to "add" a new column to the right for the next section. Maybe I've forgotten something, but I thought the "Add Section" would automatically pop up a new column once I selected a shape and started entering data.

When a new section is added, hit the refresh button to change it. It is awkward, but is one of the aspects that is under improvements.
