Well In my photos it appears as if the Hurricane bow shows a bit

Half photos show the deck a bit in front of bow and others a bit after it so currently I'm lost in this matter
I guess it's more about which modernization/era was each deck

Anyway if someone has good data I'll change it. In my schematic it was like that( bow a bit infront)

And no Ais don't land anywhere yet since it has no spawn points and no runway codded.
I will put guns first ( I'm missing the 20mils) then will adjust those things.

Check in 3ds max whether the length of the deck is 270m or so? it looks a bit longer than that I think at the moment.

From wikipedia the lengths should be approximately:

820 feet (250 m) waterline
872 feet (266 m) overall

I checked in Blender

It's 270m overall( counting the deck triangle extensions at the end) and ~265.5m without counting those)

So size is right

k maybe it's just the FOV of the pictures then, kinda makes it look really stretched. Since it is the same length as the lexington class carriers.

Maybe you could post a picture where it is seen from above/the side ? Cause like this it could give an optical effect

@Western
I will be naming the classes(cause now I have wrong name)
ships.Ship$USSEssexCV_ead(SCB-27A)
ships.Ship$USSEssexCV_ad(SCB-27C)
ships.Ship$USSEssexCV_ead(SCB-125)

to keep them in accordnance with your data

I find my 1 mistake.
Angled deck modernization is at SCB-125.
SCB-27A and SCB-27C didn't have angled deck, only old straight deck.
If you can work more 3D / 2D to make straight deck, but 127mm AAA and elevators are same as SCB-125.
(in detail, SCB-27A or SCB-27C are a bit different at elevator position. It's a small problem)
When you are tired by this hard work, only SCB-125 Essex. I will be happy still.

By the way, about the class name.
"ships.Ship$USSEssexCV_ead(SCB-125)" ... are "()" usable charactors for class name? I don't know. Is "-" ?, too, I'm not sure.
And "ships.Ship$" this ships.Ship class has to be made including whole Ship class default existence or MOD pack(HSFX/UP) added.
We can't make freely add ships.Ship class.
All single ship MOD released at SAS's Ships&Vehicles section have thier original class like "ShipWes","Shipgio","ShipAshe","ShipFlak1".
So... you have to make like "ships.ShipHawk$USSEssexCV_ead_SCB125" class.

I plan to release generics for the Essex angled decks in 1950s

One request.
Please allow me or other MODDer to make specific named / time ships addition based on your this excellent MOD.
Like "USS Ticonderoga CVA-14 /1954", "USS Bennington CVA-20 /1953", "USS Bon Homme Richard CVA-31 /1956".
IL-2 1946 players often hope these specific named ship. And ship MODDer, too.
You can find many many Essex 1941-1945 camo variation MOD in SAS.

And anyone to try making these SCB-125 Essex specific named with deck ship number paint, tell me, and discuss about class names.
For catapult enable.

Nice work Diving Hawk, been following this thread all day, I'm really looking forward to a proper Essex Angled Deck.

Can we have a screenshot from above please, the picture perspectives are misleading on the shots shown above.

Got my Chipping Hammer and Paint Pot ready.

Western,

Oops you are right I had to type _ instead of -

How about I name it
ships.ShipJFC$USSEssexCV_ead_SCB125

Would that be good ?

And of course anyone has the right to use this when I release it or modify it.

I should also mention that the Bridge area is from Yorktown so I have to ask for permission to use it by the guy who made it

Otherwise I can build my own.

Anyway Western I'm a bit "new" to the SAS style of modding cause I was used to packing all classes together.
So i'll download an SAS ship mod and see how the format works if that's allowed

You can look around any released MOD in SAS.
I did so at buginning, and I think it's a fast way to understand how to release ship MOD.

One point notice at ship class.
It will PM to you.
