PBY-5 Catalina Update v1.02

PBY-5 Catalina Update v1.02











Credits and Requirements:

Full credit for the orginal PBY/PBN mod goes to Ensign Ro and Ranwers,
and to the original game authors. This mod is a blend of the stock PBN,
the above's turrets/cockpit/weapons and my weapons/3D mods in order to make a more versatile Catalina.
I've re-released this as a "stand alone" due the extensive 3D work, new weapons and heavy classfile editing. However, most of the leg work was done by the original authors so they deserve a large portion of the credit for this.
Additionally, a reflector gunsight has been added to the cockpit. I assume it's stock, however it was taken from Poncho's
P-47 cockpit mod to save extracting it fresh:

Download

Standalone update:

Delete the existing PBY/PBN mod before installing. The PBN will be unavailable for the time being.

Original 3D update (No new classfiles, install on top of original mod):

Mapping update for flat nose section:

Details/Installation

It shouldn't be necessary to install the original mod first, as the modified classfiles
for the PBY are included in this version. However, the original mod is required if you want to fly the PBN.
You can either install by pasting this one over the PBN/PBY mod or, if that isn't installed, by moving folder PBY
to #SAS and adding the following lines to the listed files:


To air.ini:

PBY               air.PBY 1                                     usa01 DESERT

Plane.ru:

PBY                   PBY-5, 1940

The inner folder "PBY" should be moved to the skins folder.
A version of the original grey scheme is included.


This mod updates the PBN Nomad 3D model currently in the Catalina slot
to a "true" PBY-5 Catalina. Replaced and upgraded parts include:
~Nose turret (inside and out)
~Tailfin and rudder
~Hull - bow is shortened and the addititonal step is removed from the stern
~Skin - a basic "Black cat" skin is now the default
~New weapons suite, some fictional, mainly historical.
~New weapons models. Individual cannon and machine gun models, along with rocket rails, have been newly created.
The forward facing .50 caliber machine guns and 20mm autocannon
were fitted to the "black cats" in the pacific
-Matt






New default skins for exterior and interior (plus new alpha-channel layers) for this PBY airplane-Mod.

No. The original is the PBN. You need to download Ranwers and Sani's " Ensign Ro " version the PBY....

I love the pic for that thread. I made the shallows for it. :)

Whoa!  What did I do wrong?  I downloaded it twice and it keeps ending up this way?





You can see the PBN looks okay... But the PBY has a transparent section of the fuselage... It does this with all the skins I try.  Would this be my graphics card?

It's because the model is calling the _D2 damage model material for the _D0 model, if that makes sense. Let me have a think, it should be a simple fix. For a start, go into CF_D0 with notepad and change delete "Gloss2D0o" from the list of materials and let me know if that helps.
It isn't doing it on my copy, so I don't know why this is happening though.
-Matt

Edit: On second thought, don't do that. I'll think of something else.

Edit edit: if anyone else has the same problem, let me know, along with which version you're running.
Oh and Barrett, you should start working on this skin:

No hole too big but actually there are small holes ... especially around windows.

LOL Mikoyan!  That would be the perfect skin!  It's all good... I just fly my PBY while listening to Killswitch Engaged's "Holy Diver" playing on my CD player... It seems to fit!

Mine is installed on 4.10.1 with DBW 1.7 installed, by the way.

Thanks for looking into this!
