ADMIRAL189'S CORNER - INCOMING SHIP MODELS


Recommended Posts

Yes, there is! So the fix for static objects is to raise the collision model in 3ds max.. However, as you can see above. When i placed the static objects. They all for some reason were place in the center of the ship. Marroux, how did you get the static objects to sit above the flight deck and not the mast?

 

Send me a photo of a static helo above the flight deck that i can use and i will elevate the collision model in Max?

Hi Admiral,

 

Here is a pdf with screenshots in different situations.

Regarding the positioning of static objects in the mast, I don't understand.

If the object is not linked to the ship, it does not appear.  When it is linked, you can position it wherever you want.

Thanks Marroux, That's a nice shot on your desktop! 

 

I linked and placed them on the flight deck on the ship but once in game they appear on the Mast! I will test it again today. Once i update the collision model i will send it to you for test..

I like the Constellation  Admiral, good job. Do you plan setting the keel of the Virginia CGN  or California  for the upcoming Forrestal ?

Uhmmmm.......we expect hearing news from Heatblur and their roadmap by this weekend or next week at the latest. Anyway counting that the USS Forrestal has been redone more accurate and eye candy, I would say  it will touch the water by the end of May.

So, would be nice having a set of scorts according with the era, others than  Burke, Tico  and so.

Hey Guys! I have been getting a lot of request to build an Aircraft Carrier!  The Ark Royal is being created by someone at the moment so that idea is out. Creating the model is easy but the shuttles and wires may be a challenge but i'm up too the challenge.  Send me some names of Carriers and i will see if i can acquire the model and attempt to create it! 

 

I will finish the FFGX before i create an Aircraft Carrier though! Send me some ideas! Modern and older carriers. Thanks.

Would not-built carriers be considered? If so, why not CVA-01?

What about the USS Enterprise - Big E? But in my opinion it should be compatible with the supercarrier module... So what about some ballistic missile submarines? Typhoon, Borei, Ohio, Delta SSBN? 😉 Thank you for your work!

Unique idea Pappy! 😆

 

Coast Guard Ships will definitely be released before the Marianna Island map release.

 

Unfortunately 2.7 has made it more challenging for us to make Submarines but i'm still going to try. I created a submarine a while back but now the Torpedoes won't launch.

 

Midway, Big E and Kitty Hawk were definitely in my thoughts.  I was leaning more on the Kitty Hawk. USS Kitty Hawk was the ship i got qualified to be a US Navy Harbor Pilot. In the photo below. I was either Navigating the Carrier at that time or Operating one of the US Navy YTB Tugboats. I use to Operate Yard Tugboat (YTB) 798 in Yokosuka, Japan.

Once i find a good model of an Aircraft Carrier. I will bring it to you all. Until then i continue bring other ship models.  Stay Tuned!! Thanks for all the suggestions!

Hi Admiral !

 

I too think Kitty or Connie would be great choices. Somewhat different from the Nimitz and really fitting for the planes we have in DCS, plus models should be available.

Altough, not to sound ungrateful, but at the moment we have plenty of great carrier mods in DCS, it would be really cool to have something a bit "weirder" maybe with a wink to the ever overlooked whirlywing crowd.

A helo cruiser like the Vittorio Veneto or Moskva is what i personally am hoping for some day. Using them as heavily armed LPH... a one ship task force, plenty of possibilities to do some fresh scenarios.

Someone already released a model of the Queen!  I couldn't find that specific model Cddoders!

Hi,

 

The CVA-01 Queen Elizabeth proposed by Cdodders was not built (4 ships planned and cancelled).

 

The T-Pap model is the current HMS Queen Elizabeth (R08) armed in 2017 (thanks Wikipedia).

 

There is also this version (by Joe45) https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/fr/files/3314593/

Less accomplished but not uninteresting. The one from T-Pap is lighter (108Mb against 360)

CVA-01 was a 1960s design for a new 4 ship class. The Type 82 DDG was designed and built to escort them.

Hello Ello,

 

There are a few models of the Moskva but i think they have been ripped from another game so unfortunately we can bring them to DCS. 

 

We need more modelers creating ship models. ED doesn't have any plans to create anymore ship models that i know of. So i guess i'm it for now at least for Modern ships. Hawkeye creates WWII ships.

There are plans you can buy for the CV-01 (I can't find any 3d models of it) but they cost money.... More than I can afford.

 

I am doing a CATOBAR version of the QE and the Hermes.

General 3D modeling thread and reference sites

UK liveries for planes, ships and MODS.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

"Me, the 13th Duke of Wybourne, here on the ED forums at 3 'o' clock in the morning, with my reputation. Are they mad.."

Updates to my stuff are now going here
