How to actually "see" the Super Carrier?


Recommended Posts

So I bought the Hornet, and have installed the free to play SC module to check it out... so far I've yet to see the thing, only a small, crewless, ghost town of a carrier.

 

I see it loaded via module manager. Is it supposed to show up under the other map modules?(Caucuses, Persian Gulf, Syria etc)

The Super Carrier (SC) is it's own module so  it will not replace other carriers in pre-existing missions you may be running. Edit a mission and swap out the new SC or make a quick new mission in the editor and add the SC to the mission. Then you should have no problems seeing the carrier and enjoying the experience. Note: If editing an existing mission make a back up first so if something does get pooched the original mission isn't toast.

Good luck and happy flying!

There are missions using the Supercarrier under the Missions menu.

You can buy the Raven One campaign, which uses the Supercarrier already, so you won't have to fiddle with anything on your own.

Alternatively, these are two free, user-made campaigns:

They are well made, in my opinion. They both use the Supercarrier.

Here is very basic mission (based in Persian Gulf map) that can be used for touch and go landings. It has an air start, no opposition, but I have just added a carrier spawn as well so you can take your pick of air start or carrier start. Save to the Missions sub-dir under C:\Users\"named"\Saved Games\DCS\

There's a template mission in caucasus where you'll have all the new stuff. I'd suggest you load that, join as spectator and then use F2 or F9 to switch between units. So you have enough time to look at the content of the pack. You'll find the Supercarrier missions under Hornet in Missions. They you make a own mission with the included american carriers and again switch around to see the differences. It's a quite good package all in all.

The default Stennis does not have the Supercarrier goodies.  Choose another carrier to get the crew on deck.  If you had any statics they will not be connected to the carrier, so you will need to fix that up if you are a mission builder.

If you look through the SP missions for the Hornet, towards the bottom of the list will be a bunch labeled "Supercarrier" such and such, these are essentially copies of the normal Carrier missions with the Stennis swapped for one of the Supercarrier ships.
