Title: USS-SIMS class destroyer [4.09] [4.10]
Post by: gio963tto on August 17, 2011, 01:56:21 PM
I like a single stack destroyers and make this MOD for empty a hole in USN DD line with a class of pre war destroyers, the SIMS the last USN single stack DD class.
For see the ships http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=coppermine&file=displayimage&meta=lastup&cat=23485&pos=0 (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=coppermine&file=displayimage&meta=lastup&cat=23485&pos=0).

With WESTERN221 help, now ours have this ship in own slot and new version for post/43 AAA improvement (http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/470bb92214605cf53a2ebbc10d18bb08b74879c39ed6843ff63cb28ce13ffa426g.jpg)
WESTERN221 adding improvement in the model and floating flag mod and his ShipExtention MOD improvement (very very cool MOD),the others url is erased.

Now I rewrite .ini to ships.ini format.
Then a question.

In ja.wikipedia , Sims's armament written as this:
1939 build and fast-reform(less Top Heavy): 38/5inch main cannon x5 , 12.7mm AA gun x4 , torpedo x2
1943: 38/5inch main cannon x4 , 40mmX2 AA gun x2, 20mm AA gun x4 , torpedo x2

which era GIO think?
If 1943, needs 40mm Bofors X2 add 2.
At default USSFletcherDD has this 40mm Bofors X2 , I feel rent .msh from this.
In ships.ini this armament is gun_BfrsUS40x2.

Western0221:

I looked up the Sims Class and 7 of them survived the war. I could paint all 12 of these for the USN and this would give the ones that made it up to 1942-43.

I looked through the folder at the .tga files but can't see anything to use to paint these things - just what looks like lines except for skin1 through skin4 but obviously these aren't the skins you're using.

I feel they'd be a nifty little addition.

good day to all,
thanks for your new boat western0221, but let me say that, IMHO, the Sims would deserve a more realistic looking.
Colours of the modified MS12 you applied are too bright. Give a look at the following palette

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img37/930/paletteusn.jpg)

Deck and all horizontal surfaces must be Deck Blue (20B); for the vertical ones, if their surface is mainly Ocean Gray (5-O) or Haze Gray (5-H) splotches are Sea Blue (more or less equivalent to Navy Blue 5-N) and viceversa. All colours had a low reflectance and specular gloss.
Your vessel will appreciate the new dress, believe me ;).

I missed some methods in tweaking Sims's 3D last year.

Now I'm fixing those 3D/2D bugs.

Please wait a week to finish.

 :D Thanx for this great work. My Pearl harbor misn set really needs this, as does any Solomons or Midway time period project. Most of the DDs in the Navy at the beginning of the war were split deck classes of DDs and much larger DLs. Can't wait to use this. Yes I know I'm a little late, but I only now got the UP mod to install. At least I'm in the same yr.  ::)

Wow :o, this is very nice. The US fleet is really short of period vessels, and this in very well done. Thanx comrade................. 8).

The armament suite looks midwar, with the 20s and 40s. Early in the war they had (or some of them anyway) water cooled .50s and quad 1.1 inchers....I think. Not requesting it, just adding a bit to the subject at hand. These will do nicely.  :P

Hi Rasta
To get USS Simms Pack working in BAT (and some other ships by Gio including Minazuki Class DDs) I had to make a new folder in #WAW3 for Gio's class files. I just got all the class files I could find for Gio's ships and put them in one folder, which I called 02 SHIPS Gio Classes.

List of Gio's classfiles (use Zoom on postimage)

(https://i.postimg.cc/nL93HnkJ/Gio-Class-Files.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/Y4k6RKZn)

Have you managed to install the CZOldCarpenter Transport ship pack with the following ships?
Brennero
Cocito
Cutter
HM Warwick Castle
HMS Maplin
HMT Mauna Loa
KM Donau
KM Lauting
Pilot Cutter
SS Empire Heath

These and KAMIKAMARU are the only ships I cannot install?

Moderator Edit : NO FULL POST QUOTES!


Beautiful looking model.

FYI your position of USN national ensign at the stern flagstaff between the depth charge racks is incorrect when the destroyer is underway.

The flag should be placed at the top of the main mast whenever any USN vessel is underway.

Post by: Griffon_301 on October 28, 2019, 05:21:44 PM
if anyone wants to add this DDs to their BAT game, make sure to use the classfiles from the LaMasa DD also done by Gio; these are the latest Gio classfiles I could find;
and if the Sims does not show up after installing, try using the standard ships.ini entries, not the ones for the ships extension pack;
