HMS Invincible & HMS Illustrious V1.3 Mod UPDATE 19/01/2021


Recommended Posts

HMS INVINCIBLE & HMS Illustrious V1.3 Mod Release!  ( 19/01/2021 ) - UPDATED 

 

UPDATE Changelog V1.3 :

 

- Re-worked modelling on HMS Invincible
- Brand-new Seadart Model and launcher - (Launcher will receive further fixing in next update)
- Deck signs and writting added
- Ship R05 Insignia added to Island
- Fixed Hull and added red base 
- Corrected Encyclopedia (Thanks Joey45)
- Added Themes (Thanks Ozone1)

 

 

V1.2 - Only update to Illustrious

- Extensive re-work of deck and ambience lighting on HMS Illustrious
- Re-modelled surfaces 
- Crest and Insignia added 
- Animation updates


HMS Invincible  R05 (1982) and HMS Illustrious R06 (2012)   !

What works : 

- Lights , however they remain mostly on during the day as well (Have not been able to animate the time of day change yet)
- AI Takeoff and Landing (testsed with 3 AI -  Ski jump will not work with them though due to DCS bug.They attempt it but usually crash in sea)
- Radar Animation

What doesn't work : 

- Lights , however they remain mostly on during the day as well
- Elevator animations 
- No working defensive weapons yet (to be added to next update)

 

All textures are base textures used for the modelling. Proper textures are being made now and will be added to next update .

Some parts of the ship might seem better made than others , this is because this ship was my learning project so as I progressed I modelled better.
All will be addressed in upcoming updates however due to work and time , I will doing best I can . Afterall , Razbam's South Atlantic map and assets should be releasing with this year !

You can download the mod via mediafire :

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/20i7ulxfq5t2p/HMS_Invincible_%26_Illustrious_DCS_Mod

I've also submited it to the user files section so will be made available there aswell !

Big thanks to Joey45 (Hermes Mod) for his help !

Have been working on this model for quite a few weeks . Initially started as project to learn to model better , turned into a proper project and am now (i think) on the final stretch to complete her. 

HMS Invincible R05 - Currently working on lighting and still have a few features to add on deck and on the island (Windows , doors and cabling etc).

I've tried to model her based on the 1982 variant R05 however there might be a few inconsistencies as from the material available online alot of times I have realised the HMS illustrious was tagged as the R05 instead of R06 mixing up the features which are slightly different . Slowly correcting whatever I can so for the most part I hope it will be close enough to the R05.

Couple of screenshots and will update soon with more as I get closer to finishing her within the next week or two in order to upload a first version!

There's a bug where the AI either eject or crash after take off.

 

Ships can't use Chaff yet.

 

IF you want any help just ask or scream and we'll help.

Isn;'t the chaff dispencing lua based though with the appropriate connector on the model ? Wouldnt it work similar to a modded aircraft ?

Non of the ships in DCS have active countermeasures..... Yet.

 

ED still needs to make the code still.

Sorry for the delay !

Got sidetracked playing around with another project that i'm working on for DCS. 

All that is the left until the first version is released is working on the Lua files for AI landings etc. Those lua files can really be hell to tweak!

looks great - you've modeled her as she was after her 1990 refitwith a 12 degree ski ramp rather than the original 1979 7 degree ramp. But seeing as how your model matches what she looked like when I served on her, it gets my vote. Somewhere have a load of phots of when she hosted VMA-214 Black Sheep in AV-8Bs in the mid 90's - I'll load some up on this thread if ok?

 

Thank you so much for brining my favourite ship to DCS

  • T-Pap changed the title to HMS Invincible V1.0 Mod Release

v1.0 is now online !

This is with base textures used for modeling purposes and a few issues described in the initial post up top which i have updated with the file and info.

Already hard at work with the next update to address issues ! Hope you like my first attempt at this !

She is a mix of variants cause i could not find specific photos of each ship to model to . Many photos online stating one ship but actually showing another . Hence this is a mashup and will slowly start seperating them for later update to provide two variants. If you have pics with the ship you were on I would love to see them ! Please feel free to upload them and send them to me as well 🙂

I could only put 3 Harriers on it as the 4th would be balancing on the port deck-edge about halfway up the flight deck
