Note: These classes cover all ships with the prefix ShipAshe$ in the text entries and supersede ShipAshe$ classes prior to March 2017. Do not overwrite if installing earlier models which use the ShipAshe$ text entry in chief.ini

Texture Artwork - Based on profile in Warship Profile 24 by G. Davies and D. Palmer

Installation Instructions:

Checked with SASModActv6.1  -  v4.12 compatible.  Should work fine in other versions except v4.09.

Extract the contents of the two download to a temporary folder on Desktop.
Extract 000ShipAsheClasses folder into the #SAS folder.  These classes must load before any existing ShipAshe$ classes.
Extract the HMSFurious folder into your #SAS folder.
The class files supercede all earlier ShipAshe classes. Do not overwrite these with earlier ship mods.
Check the game still runs ok.
You will find the required text entries in txt files within the HMSFurious folder.
Make text entries in chief.ini and ships.ini and check game runs and HMS Furious appears.
Make remaining text entries.

Folder structure should be: game root\#SAS\HMSFurious\3do\Ships\HMSFurious\  or  game root\#SAS\ShipAshe\3do\Ships\HMSFurious\

Notes:  The model includes "placeholder" damage meshes and textures only. Further work will be required to produce a visually detailed damage model. Collision boxes are simplified.
               The Barracuda aircraft model does not takeoff from flightdecks -- not unique to Furious
               The Avenger aircraft is not able to negotiate the ramp intact. No historical use of this aircrft on Furious is known.

Thank you for the beautiful ship  8)


*OMG! Working ramp O.O*
*Change aircraft to F-18*
*Full throttle and chocks away*
*Unexpected explosion on ramp*
*Whistling and kicking pieces of the aircraft into the sea*

If  you are planing take great screenshot with new mods, don't plan anything before you have full installed working mod. Otherwise installation is going to fail badly. *true story

I must admit, the F-18 was not one I tested.
The ramp relies on a transition slope to ease aircraft onto it.
Whether or not it works depends on aircraft weight and speed.

All historically correct aircraft seemed to work, but not tested with the full range of weapon load out.
Heavier weapon load may require an increase ship speed or stronger wind to take off ---- just like real life maybe. 

HMS Furious has no catapults.

Nice one, but no Catapults on the F-18 for you Andee, only Slow Aircraft like Barracuda can Land the carrier.

I guess with CTO the aircraft is given a catapult boost. The immediate forward motion overcomes the nose tipping. This is not really a good solution. However if you want to fit more Baracudas on deck you can adjust the _Park hook coordinates in Hull2.msh.  The Baracuda is a pretty large aircraft.
