Robhans,

So, installing the angle deck carriers using JSGME could be the source of my problems with the catapult. Thank you very much for your comments :). I'll re-configure my install accordingly and let you know what happens.

Cheers,

Robhans,

What?

I can't understand JSGME for this Essex pack.
Essex pack doesn't support JSGME.
(JSGME doesn't support any Ship MOD installing, too!)

You have to install as written in "Readme_en.txt".
Anyone can support the ways outside "Readme_en.txt".

Robhans,

I've re-configured my angle deck carrier install, but it seems that I am still doing something wrong as the catapult still does not work. Here's what I did:

1) Installed '____00000_000_CarrierTakeOff5.7.2' in the #DBW directory so that it is at the top of that directory. Also, I confirmed that the '66731988E795FA7A' is the only file in that directory.

2) Installed '___00000_SAS_AI_Engine_HotKeys_Carriers in the #DBW directory so that it is second from the top of that directory. However, I found that my game crashes immediately. I removed '96F4C2FA0F2B0FD0' from the directory and as a result, the game now loads.

3) Installed USSEssexCVs_SCB125 in the #DBW directory.

4) Revised chief.ini per add1.chief.ini and add2.chief.ini.

5) Revised ships.ini per add.UP3RC4.ships.ini.

6) Revised stationary.ini per add.stationary.ini.

7) Revised techics_ru.properties per add.techics_ru.properties

Question: You gave a '[MODS]' section listing catapult settings and stated that "...my air.ini does have these lines, but they are mostly default settings anyway". I think you meant to say that these lines were in your conf.ini. Please confirm whether or not that is so.

If you have some other suggestions, please let me know and I'll give them a try. I would very much like to get this this mod to work. For now, my angle deck carriers are dead in the water :(.

Cheers,

Robhans,

One more question. In the '_____00000_000_CarrierTakeOff5.7.2' directory, file '66731988E795FA7A' is dated 2/26/2012, 10:18 A.M. Are you using the same version of this file?

Cheers,

Robhans,

Regarding my status, the angle deck carriers do show up in the game. Note that when using the angle deck carriers, I always set the year between 1955 and 1960. However, when I taxi up to the catapult, my plane does not 'connect'. So, there is no catapult available for the player's plane. When AI aircraft launch, they do so without the catapult. If the aircraft is a jet, it promptly becomes a submarine.

Thanks for the updated CTO 5.7.2.1 link. I plan to change the names of the mod directories back to what they were originally to match your configuration. Also, I will re-download 00000_SAS_AI_Engine_HotKeys_Carriers and replace the version I have. I'll let you know what happens.

Cheers,

Riptide

maybe issue with F-4 Phantoms at takeoff

seem that spawnpoints are too near for F4s

when mission start wings of near planes are one into other...... no problem for AI because they go directly on catapult

but human can't taxi to catapult because after released chocs the player's plane crash into the nearest aircraft

offline you can go over catapult with autopilot but is almost impossbile takeoff online with f4

That's actually pretty realistic; the F-4 never operated off the Essex class, too heavy. They were equipped with F-8s, A-4s almost exclusively as attack carriers. They could carry S-2 ASW planes and E-1 AEW planes as well, but not the F-4.......normally. The A-7 could have, but I don't know if it ever did. In 73, Hancock and Oriskany still had F-8Es and A-4Fs, at least Hancock did for sure.  :-X

Way back when my dad got his wings after completing his CQ on the Lexington (Jan of 85), so im a little partial to using the lexington for everything  :-[  but I love all carriers equally and will fly anything with a tailhook.  Thank you for the great ships.  I got panthers, cougars, and furys flying off and on the ships almost daily.  Its always a nice challenge to run a lap around the ship and catch a 3 wire.  I have noticed that when i catch a 4 wire, i end up in the drink, but it could be something with how i fly.
