[RESOLVED] C-130J-30 Tail textures applied to external tanks

As the title says the textures from the tail fin are also applied to the external tanks, see images

I am trying to repaint this aircraft but this bug is driving me nuts.

Hello,

Thanks for the report, we'll have this fixed in our next update. You can prevent the fuel tanks from rendering by modifying the aircraft.cfg file for this vehicle by removing the External1 and External2 entries in the [fuel] section.

The tanks on the J aren't the only thing messed up. I have noticed the engine plugs, pitot covers and applicable "Remove Before Flight" streamers are not aligned with their appropriate textures in C130_10_T.dds; wheel chocks are getting front texture from one file and aft texture from another.
The KC-130 displays the USAF flag when it should be the Marine flag

On the 130J-30, the rear navigation lights are placed inside the tail (approx. 2.1 meters too far forward), where they don't really do much good.

I am assuming that I need to uninstall the Content msi from 4.3 and reinstall the content msi from 4.4 to get the updates for this.

Update the C-130J Flight Deck model as well please. The current Flight Deck in incorrectly showing the older model with all analog instrumentation. The J model has a Modern Flight Deck with Multi function Displays.

LM didn't create the model, that was done by Captainsim. And for that matter I don't believe LM created any of the people carrying aircraft in the sim.

Where did you see that the LM C130 model was provided by CaptainSim?
