Updated Boeing 377/C-97 Stratocruiser pack for IL-2 1946 modded.


Hello guys, here is a link for the update of the old pack with new 3d parts and java. ;)








The 10th August date on the zip is correct, this has been available elsewhere for testing.

Mediafire link:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/p53bw7hava45pe5/C-97_pack_updated_10th_August_2018.7z/file



For those experiencing difficulties with parts of the cockpit disappearing please try this version:

Mediafire link:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/dqk7xckah99th20/Cockpit_alteration_for_C-97_pack_V2.zip/file

Just take the C-97 folder in this download and replace the one currently in the cockpit folder, leave the 'KC_97P-BGun' as it is there were no changes to that.

Tested in my 4.12.2 with SAS ModAct 5.30 using all suggested dependencies for Jet War by 4S_Vega and western0221 up to date.

Currently also running in a BAT update that has still to be released. 


This has been under development for some time to provide a updated pack for BAT but it was also my intention that it should also be available as a public download in the forum available for users to add to their personal installs without the need to use a mod pack.

The models use components from the existing pack but also new 3d parts for fuselage and engines, some of those items come from the W.I.P. B-50 pack that was never released.


Credits:

Bison_M: Project lead and 3D original pack.


Pete Shaw aka Mission_bug: New 3d fuselage, new exhausts, keel modifications, modified templates, default skins and statics.


4S_Vega:  New classes with slot for additional tanker:


BUGLORD:  Original B-29 template.

PA_Jeronimo:  Wheel detail parts.

max_thehitman:  Improved wheel textures and plane properties entries.


Credits for original mods used:

1C: Maddox Games for IL-2
Flakiten for mod KB-29p
SAS ~ CirX for the Tu-4
GJE52 for KJ-1
Ranwers - for B-29,  "meteors'
Jaypack44 for templats and skins B-29
And to all those who I have not mentioned in this list.

From WIP B-29/B-50 readme:

B-29 & B-50 Pack by Aviator Mod Team *BETA*
********************************************
Based on original B-29s by 1C:Maddox
New 3D for B-50s and B-29T by Red_Fox90 and Lisek
B-29 Silverplater and bombs by O_Magpie, Fireball, SAS~Cirx, MrJolly, Lt.Wolf, Fat Duck, VC-81_BOLTER, O_Leigh, Max_Thehitman, Ranwers, Wolfighter, Twister & Santobr
KB-29 by Flakiten
Cockpits by CharlieChap and Kami_1 (extracted from HSFX6)
Java/Loadouts/FM for B-50s and B-29T by SAS~Anto
Additional java (cockpit/gunner code), updated B-29 3D,and FM work by BenitoMuso

Apologies to anyone I may have forgotten, this will be corrected for the final version.



Notes:

The aircraft over run the runways used for test on landing using AI.

The front facing nose wheel door while opened sits too high and too far forward this is because the B-29 did not have a command for this type of door to pivot here so it is attached to the leg to allow it to open and close, once closed it sits in the correct position.


The engine orientation is different on the transports and tankers, it was necessary for me to put them in gmax to alter this and the extracted part is not as smooth as the original 3d on the tankers.

The pilot view uses the previous version, however, due to the fact I could not satisfactorily align parts of that to mask the external new fuselage I added the internal skin from the new external model but it lacks detail:



Alex, Bison_M, reports issues with this if used without Open GL, the part causes graphical issues so you might have to use a older version from the existing pack.


Tanker statics show the boom deployed so part of it is below the surface when added to a map.

Hope all you guys like what is here, my 3d work is far from perfect but with the contributions from others it brings the old pack up to date and completes a project that was begun many years ago, enjoy. ;)


Thank you very much to all who have followed and contributed to this project, your help is really appreciated. 8)


What you have in the link is also currently running in a BAT update that has still to be released, thanks especially to 4S_Vega and SAS~vampire and Bison_M for their continuing work with this project and on that pack. ;)



Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Looks superb ecf111, looking forward to seeing what skins you guys can do for this. ;)


The template is what I used for the old franken skins I did, I tried to move or add certain insignia/codes to where they should be for the new model, however, I left most of original the codes for the civil and military types where they were but turned them off so you will have to check placement if you use them.

The B.O.A.C and Israeli codes are a case in point, if I have not placed them for use on the skins provided then they will have to be moved from the original place.  I tried as best I could to create a new set of trim lines so if you use those on the skins I provide as a base you should be okay, although you will find the nose has a slight step you need to adjust a little and I cannot guarantee there is no bleeding/warping outside those areas I provided.

The wings use the original B-29 lines, a shrunken version for the newly mapped underside outer wing is in the upper corner that originally had the B-29 crawl space painted.  The old engine lines were replaced with some new items although I might have left some items there but turned off, not sure.  The rear of the nacelles and the undercarriage doors I think still use the original lines.

I removed the original fuselage because the window cut outs caused some issues with codes and windows, the solid one allows the artist to paint the great variety of window type that would have been impossible if I had continued to use the original fuselage so gives more variety to what is painted, downside is I did not get to create the interior passenger layout. :D


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

It´s "SEXY"  8)

I have used all the cool words possible to describe this wonderful airplane before, so I am left with just calling it - "sexy" .

It´s a fine looking model Pete!
Congrats!

Beautiful work Pete!  I lament that a recent systems crash will keep me from downloading her for a few weeks. Can't wait to fly it. :P :P
