I can start the new year off creating a knox class and CG 26 Belknap Class cruiser. Their both are pretty much complete. Just need to complete them.  The Cruiser is actually already in DCS.. i've been

I'm testing out the missiles now. So far so good. Just trying to find the right non Harpoon anti-ship missile. Should be done soon! Linx, i'm honestly think ED will not provide anymore ships. At

What is the install path for the S_70B? Can it be used seperately from the LHD/LSD Models?

Hello,

First of all, thank you for your wonderful work.

 

I have the same difficulty as Rusty.

 

I place an AV-8B in takeoff position on the USS San Antonio.

- Initial version (USS San Antonio LPD-17_Model.7z - 9.30.2020): the Harrier loses its landing gear and seems to float above the flight deck, but no lag.

- With the USS San Antonio Collision .edm version of 10.13.2020: the Harrier is intact but there is a very big lag.

 

Is there a rational explanation?

Admiral stated before that the ply count is quite large, leading to a larger file size and hence the lag. He's reducing the poly-count and file size so that hopefully should clear up lag.

BTW Admiral, which license do you choose on CGtrader? Royalty free or Editiorial?

Hello Marroux, i'm completly redoing the San Antonio because of the large file size.

 

Hey Looney, I try to choose royalty free if possible. What I like about Cgtrader is you can contact the moddler and in most cases, they don't mind what you do with their model. I actually got the San Antonio from Cgtrader!!

Navy, I've been watching Razbam also. I see they have a few ships coming out as well. I don't think DCS will put out anything else in the near future. A lot of those models existed during the 2.5.4 version and I still have them.

 

Yeah, Admiral, I don’t think ED will add any more ships to DCS for a while, if they did it most like in another modules or assets pack for a new map like Mariana island map, other then RAZBAM there are two other third-party makers that are making AI ships. We all know HeatBlur is doing there Forrestal Class Carrier, Deka Ironwork Simulations has their Chinese Assets Pack with a nice amount of Chinese ships in it.

 

I’m keeping my eye on Magnitude 3 LLC there making a Long-hull Essex class carrier for the F4U-1 Corsair, there also making F-8J Crusader which I cannot wait for but there no word yet, if they’re going to make a carrier to go with it like the Midway class or Long-hull Essex class carrier or if it will work with any of the carriers that are already in-game.

Hey, I don't have any plans for long hulls. I know some other guys that do create the oldies but not sure if they will bring them to DCS. If I had the time I push a model every week for the next 6 months but I just don't have time.

 

San Antonio is coming along really well. I haven't a lot of time lately but I'm getting her done.

Hey Guys, sorry I been away! I got distracted by creating 3d model aircraft. I would like you alls opinion on FPS. I know all of this is based on your PC equipment though. What's the avg FPS you get while playing DCS? So i ran some test and it appears I only get 25 FPS but i'm using a GTX 670 graphics card. Santa will be bringing me another one :). We've ran some test on the latest version of San Antonio and it's low. Trying to figure out whether it's the model i'm creating or DCS. Today i will release the LCU i created! Known issues! collisions on deck are not correct and i'm not sure why. I can't see them so it's hard to correct it

LCU release today!! The FWD & AFT ramps lower by rotating the mouse aft. Also, if you left-click you can shoot the guns.. The LCU does not come with weapons. As mentioned there are known issues with collisions on deck but I can't see them to correct it. Also, there's an invisible collision on the ramp so driving onboard is not possible. There's not another model in DCS that I can study to fix this issue. THE LCU IS NOT PERFECT but a good addition. One thing about it. I create all my models the same way so honestly not sure what's causing the low FPS rates! Stay Tuned!!

The link for the LCU is posted on page one!! There are three versions. The original version, no flag, and a low polygon version. I noticed the low polygon version performs better in DCS than the original. As mentioned in an earlier post. There are known issues with collisions. Enjoy!!
