What I want to make is drivable tanks.
Yes indeed - Tanks would be fantastic - imagine being in a Sherman or a PanzerIV at El Alamein.
And drivable ships and tanks etc would add so many extra dimensions to the sim.
Like I said in the post above, a sim of the scale and calibre of IL2 could easily rival these state of the art multi-service games like Warthunder, and be much better to play.

Imagine calling air-support and receiving it from a fellow player!

then look up my request thread about Chieftain. The 3D is pretty much done.
Hi NS Koty

That is one heck of a great looking tank, and the firepower would be amazing - looking forward to driving it in the not too distant future.

Hi Guys

For anyone who wants the original drivable PT Boat mod. Here is a download link (also now in post #1)

https://www.mediafire.com/?hac214qtyhy1hrq

there are 5 files in the download - but start by just dropping the 088_PT-Boat_UBoat file into
your MODS or SAS or WAW folder then add these entries;

air.ini as follows -

PT-Boat         air.PT_BOAT 1              usa01 SUMMER

...and to your plane.properties as follows

PT-Boat             PT-Boat

Remember this is an aircraft Flight Model so in FMB set your waypoints as Take off + Taxi to take off

Also included in the download are ;
A Diff FM by Benitomuso which you can try if you get a 60% crash
Buttons file which some installs may need

With SAS modact 5.3 and CUP, I personally did not need these files.
I have not tested in BAT.

Inside the 088_PT-Boat_UBoat/3DO/Plane/ there are three more files; PT-Boat, -PT-Boat and usPT-Boat
Only PT-Boat is the active file. Run game and find out which boat it is (U-Boat or Russian PT-Boat) I think it is U-Boat at first.
If you want US PT-Boat then make PT-Boat into uPT-Boat, then take off the "us" from usPT-Boat - You get the idea, disable 2 of the files so they are recognisable to you, and use the other one in the game - Thus you have 3 choices of boat, but only one at a time can be used.

Note - I am grateful to Ede von Werner, who was kind enough to send me a copy of the mod from his own install, having downloaded it from Fresco23's link http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,12024.msg567961.html#msg567961
(this link now seems to go to a web hosting site and the original links from Triad go to some kind of a Chinese information site)
So far, it has apparently been impossible to identify who originally created the PT-Boat mod.
Also, looking at the threads in more detail, it was ectoflyer who developed the U-Boat variation - so massive thanks to him.
Disclaimer - All I've done is track the mods down and hopefully made them more available.

Have fun

Squash

Thank you for updating the link but please make sure to give credit for those you can name who worked on this. Also, you can go to the original thread and add a post at the end of the thread so others can find it there as well. Modders here only ask for credit for their work so its very important you do.

For sure - it seems however, according to the re-upload thread,  http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,12024.msg567961.html#msg567961
Fresco23 managed to find a copy of the mod and then Ede von Werner passed it on to me, but apparently there was no indication of who had originally created it.
But whoever you were, a big thankyou I'm sure, from all of us.
Also - yes, good idea from Bombsaway - I will post a link on the above thread.

I hope that wizards of BAT read this thread and will consider inclusion of new drivable vehicles into one of future BATEXP.

It seems there are some skins for the U-Boat version of the PT-Boat mod. I came across these while searching for the original modder.
      http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,54380.msg591442.html#msg591442
I have tried them and they work, but not perfect. It shows what is possible though!

That would be very nice.
