Great work, so many people including me have been long hoping such a ship would see the day in IL2.

It may be a bit premature to talk already about a Mod to populate the deck, I think it would be nice to add parked F8 Crusaders and maybe even the A4 Skyhawk model that is to my understanding complete (the model meshes+textures, not the rest) + crewmen on the deck.

Adding parked planes would not only add realism to the deck, but would also offer an interesting challenge in landing without hitting parked planes, and parking your plane among other parked aircraft.

Cheers,

Poudjik, nice idea but I don't think the Essex ever carried F8 Crusaders.

USS Intrepid also carried Crusaders during her last tour in Vietnam. Lt. Anthony Nargi shot down a MiG-21 on that tour with a sidewinder off his F-8.

I served on the U.S.S. Intrepid in 1960 on a med cruise, I was with VFP-62  F8U-1P photo
Recon Crusaders. I really don't know when they first served on the Essex class but they sure were in 1960.

As I said this before this mod was about making a generic for the Essex angled deck.
It is my best attempt as a single person + with western's help in coding to create this ship as close as I can to teh historical shape.

99% this is not 100% historical. And it's because information for early angled decks is tricky to find and because I do not have unlimited time. It's the same in any mod's first release.

So when released this will be totally allowed to  modify/destroy/edit/republish to all moders.
Since I do not claim to be god the only way my ship will get better for the community is to allow other's to build on top of my work and improve it.

I'll only place one condition for this. That you also won't deny other modders the chance to use your work based on my ship.

so after I release it if you guys want parked planes and such stuff, feel free to add them ;)

Which means I appreciate all your suggestions for the future but I will be having extremely limited time for the near future so I won't be able to carry them out myself.

Ok guys I'm pleased to anounce Beta version here.

Plz read readme first so you do not do stupid questions like (why can't I land in angle deck?)

=== USS Essex Carrier Generic SCB125 mod===


!!!ATTENTION!!!: NOTICE about Catapult use:

We don't have the new Catapult MOD for this SCB-125 Essex

The new Catapult MOD will be made after ship MOD released.
Before the new Catapult MOD installed, this Essex has no Catapult and wires are not strong enough to stop a jet in the correct distance

This forces me to leave the spawn points on the back of deck so that the mod will be usuable till teh new catapult mod comes out.
I will update when CM is out.


==Installation==

1. Copy "USSEssexCV_ead_SCB125(->version here<-)" folder to your MODS folder.
SASModAct mod folder="#SAS"
Ultr@Pack3.0 mod folder="#UP#"
DarkBlueWorld mod folder="#DBW".

2. Copy the text from TO_CHIEF to chief.ini

3. Copy the text from TO_STATIONARY to stationary.ini

4. Copy the text from TO_SHIPS and paste to ships.ini

5. Copy the text from TO_RU and paste to technics_ru.properties

SAME STEPS FOR 4.09 version just use the correct folder!


==EDITING/REPUBLISHING==

You are in fact encourage to edit , improve and republish my work as you see fit.
Only 1 condition that you allow other moders to do teh same with your alterations of my work.

I'm having a 70% crash and I do not know what I have done wrong as I have entered everything correctly, atleast according to the readme
I'm running a DBW 1.6 install

well that was embarrassing... I didn't put the mod itself in game as I put all the entries in first, now I feel rather stupid  :-[
