USS Essex SCB-125 angled deck High-Reso branch
« on: December 21, 2011, 09:45:40 AM »

USS Essex class aircraft carrier after SCB-125 modernization with angled deck.
This MOD original 3D and armaments are made by Diving_Hawk.
Diving_Hawk's WIP topic is here http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,19915.0.html

I fix some 3D bugs and deck texture resolution make twice higher. (Done)
Airplanes' shadows are drawn on the flight deck. (Done)
Making a new island / mast / radars. (Done)



Ships list
- USS Essex CV9 /1957
- USS Essex CV9 /1965
- USS Yorktown CV10 /1956
- USS Intrepid CV11 /1957
- USS Intrepid CV11 /1970
- USS Hornet CV12 /1957
- USS Hornet CV12 /1970
- USS Ticonderoga CV14 /1962
- USS Randolph CV15 /1957
- USS Randolph CV15 /1962
- USS Lexington CV16 /1958
- USS Hancock CV19 /1957
- USS Hancock CV19 /1968
- USS Kearsarge CV33 /1965
- USS Oriskany CV34 /1965
- USS Oriskany CV34 /1970
- USS Shangri La CV38 /1955
- USS Shangri La CV38 /1970

BETA12 pack (Link is erased)
Changes from BETA11 - Island fix, flight deck collision fix (*.ini are not changed)
Changes from BETA10 - many parts fix, useless files deleted
You have to erase BETA10 or older install folder completely. Don't overwrite BETA12 onto BETA10 or older folder.
(onto BETA11, overwrite BETA12 OK)




BETA12 needs Ship Extention 2.10 http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,18742.0.html for full functions.
UP3RC4 isn't compatible to Ship Extention 2.10, in limited functions (without rotating radars) you can use BETA12 ships in UP3RC4.

And this Essex SCB-125 has Catapults , but they work on only this new Catapult MOD.
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,23327.0.html (DBW1.71 / SASModAct3 with Jetwar ver1.2).
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20102.msg220487.html#msg220487 (UP3.0RC4 = Reply #78 at Page7)
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20102.msg241362.html#msg241362 (HSFX5/SASModAct3 without Jetwar ver1.2 = Reply #126 at Page11)
At 27th Dec. 2011, DBW or UP3RC4, HSFX5, SASModAct3 - all the MOD exvironments are supported by this Catapult MOD and we can use Catapult on Essex.
HSFX5, SASModAct3 (without Jetwar ver1.2)are 25th Feb. 2012 version is latest.
Only UP3RC4 is 27th Dec. 2011 version is latest and some functions limited.
DBW1.71, SASModAct3 with Jetwar ver1.2 are Anto's AI~Carrier MOD v2.5 is latest.

But for AI, enabling some new Jets use Catapult is need to version-up Carrier Take-Off MOD.
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20339.0.html
UP3.0RC4 and DBW1.71 have CTO functions inside.
(But DBW1.71 version is a few buggy, I released a patch version5.7.2 for DBW1.71.)

How to use catapults?

1. install new Catapult MOD

2. You have to taxi you airplane from spawning point to the catapult starting point and push "Toggle Chocks" key, then airplane will be set on the Catapult.
After you make full-throttle, push "Toggle Chocks" key again, the catapult push your aircraft to take-off.

3. When you enable "Carrier Take-off MOD", AI airplanes jump to the catapult starting point, not taxi.

Great work Western! We will wait on on an HSFX modact release. AI will not use cat in your previous versions because the carrier isn't in it's list. Is it possible to have MDS spawn position more forward so angle deck is clear for recovering aircraft. AI use in HSFX install is critical in a Korea Campiagn we are looking to do in SEOW which is an HSFX install.

Super job to everyone involved Drive_Hawk, Eddie, and Western! This is a great edition for everyone!

western, words can't even start to express how I feel right now.The USS Hornet CVA 12 in across the bay from where I live. I have walked her old wooden decks and always hope I would get a chance to take her back to war. Wait till tell one of the tour guides I meet that his ship is in a flight simulation now that we can both fly. It should blow his mind. Thank so very much. wc

Thank you very much! Your hard work is paying off and is very much appreciated. I noticed, the flight deck looks great from certain angles but other angles appears "blurry". Is this just me? Any ideas?

I think I know what you mean.

While looking with low angle from deck right from the side, etc...

I don't know of a way to counter this. Maybe someone else does.

A question to western: could you make USS Shangri La 1955 as next one? It would fit Jet War 1956... plzz...

That blurring problem could have something to do with the texture sizes. 

I have just sent Western a deck for USS Hancock that was made in 2048 size from scratch, the decks so far were made in 1024 size and blown up to 2048.

Lets see how that looks once he has had time to do it, that might help.

If that works I will re do all the deck skins in 2048.

OK.
Today, I make USS Shangri La 1955.

Shangri La 1955 has other lines paint rule bt 1960 ones, I feel.

When I get other 1950's Essex's paint scheme blueprints or photos from just above, more 1950's will be made...
