Next, The Mod that started it all!

 

Presenting,

 

The KMS Bismark

 

This mod goes WAY back!

See here,

 

 

 

I have repaired her and enhanced her!

 

She is ready for Sea trials!

 

There are two versions.

With and without AR196 sea plane.

(The aircraft is in-active.  See the Float Plane Mod)

 

This model comes from Sketch Fab and uses the same license as above.

 

I have not tested or checked the sounds folder as of this date.

As the usage of sounds in mods as changed, it may need some love to work.

 

I wish to Thank Mario for his wonderful Ships!

We hope you use and enjoy them!

Pics, videos and missions for all  are welcome!

 

 

New Bismarck Version!  1.5

 

Please test and report any issues.

New addition!

 

This mod comes from Sketch fab.

I thank Mario for the Max assist!

 

The Marinefährprahm (MFP), "naval ferry barge", was the largest landing craft operated by Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II.

It served a variety of roles (transport, minelayer, escort, gunboat) in the Mediterranean, Baltic and Black Seas as well as the English Channel and Norwegian coastal waters. Originally developed for the proposed invasion of England (Operation Sea Lion), the first of these ships was commissioned on 16 April 1941, with approximately 700 being completed by the war's end in May 1945. Allied sources sometimes refer to this class of vessel as a "Flak Lighter" or "F-lighter".

 

Have fun!

"Yeah, and though I work in the valley of Death, I will fear no Evil. For where there is one, there is always three. I preparest my aircraft to receive the Iron that will be delivered in the presence of my enemies. Thy ALCM and JDAM they comfort me. Power was given unto the aircrew to make peace upon the world by way of the sword. And when the call went out, Behold the "Sword of Stealth". And his name was Death. And Hell followed him. For the day of wrath has come and no mercy shall be given."

Thanks a lot @Hawkeye60 ... looking forward to more WW2 Japanese warships, I intend to use them once the Corsair F-4U cames along 👍

 

Why don't you upload your Mods to ED File Server? .. it would make them more visible to the community, with tags like IJN, Battleship, etc.

Please, don’t forget about a few destroyers, to flesh out realistic formations ... battleships almost never went without escorts. 👍

Hello @Hawkeye60

 

I installed the Mod, and I can't get it to show up as German or 3rd Reich ship .. it is not on the list, and on the dcs.log I see this error message:

 

ERROR   Scripting: [string "C:\Users\Eduardo\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods/tech/WWII KMS Bismark/entry.lua"]:20: attempt to call global 'mount_vfs_sounds_path' (a nil value)

 

On a positive note, the sounds seem that they would work, as on the log there is indication that the sounders are being loaded:

 

INFO    SOUND: Added sound path: C:\Users\Eduardo\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods/tech/WWII KMS Bismark/Sounds
INFO    SOUNDER: Loaded 3 sounders.

 

I will re-download and re-install the Mod, to make sure that it is not a mistake on my part. I'm using the latest Openbeta of DCS.

Best regards,

 

Eduardo

Hi Eduardo, thanks for confirming this - I have the same problem. Thought it may be a mod conflict (I have hundreds of mods loaded) & still might be? But if you or Hawkeye manage to confirm the issue or fix , would love to have this mod back. Fondly remember this with the HMS Hood as the first mods I used, back in the day 🙂👍

Just to be that pedantic asshole, it's spelled Bismarck, not Bismark. 🙂

 

This Forum really needs to add a Thumbs Down to the list of user reactions 👎

A conflict is unlikely, as I always test new Mods alone, with all others disabled .. using OvGME to ensure this:

We are investigating.

 

All screens taken in OB, most recent build.

 

DCS repair is the first thing to try.

 

I have seen this before.

 

Works on the creators pc, not anyone else!

 

Very interesting issue.....and frustrating to say the least.

 

Thanks for the reports!

FWIW I have the same issue getting the Bismarck to show up. I took a quick look at adding/removing Germany and Third Reich from the lua without any luck.

 

Anyone been able to work around this issue?

 

This is on stable - haven't tried OB yet.

 

In other testing...

 

Point blank 1-1 battle between the Missouri and the Yamato the Missouri always wins quickly - Yamato magazine appears to go up and she sinks.

 

Hood (early) versus Yamato the Hood always wins but it is a longer battle and the Hood takes some good damage.

 

Nothing scientific - just fun play time watching things go boom.

 

Any work being done to bring the Tirpitz, Scharnhorst, Gneisenau?

 

🙂

I love big guns, but we also need escort ships for believable missions ... a Fletcher Class destroyer would be nice for use at Normandy (and Marianas when it shows up) 🙂

True, true. Would like to see some civilian shipping also.

 

But doesn't hurt to ask - Tirpitz could be a skin if not that fussy.
