Title: Osprey Land/Osprey Seaplane/Osprey Carrier/ Hart/ HartMercury /Hind ready to DL
Post by: Dreamk on August 27, 2012, 09:13:50 AM
Time has arrived to expand the Osprey/Hart family - floats, skis, landing hook, armament, engines and such. So here they are:
Osprey landplane

Osprey Seaplane
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img515/5595/ospreysseaplane.gif)
Osprey Carrier
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img717/7366/ospreyccarrier.gif)
Hart (Kestrel) (with skis on winter as on Estonian Harts)
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img228/4804/harta.gif)
Hart Mercury (with skis on winter as on Swedish/Finnish Harts)
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img337/1580/hartmercurya.gif)
Hind
(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img52/4050/hinda.gif)
And their array of Spanish, British, Finnish (and Swedish) bombs.

You'll need of course to install these various bomb packs (if not already done) to flu these planes correctly.

Thanks, Dreamk) Very interesting&beauty early planes)
I have only one problem after flying all of them) There are strange situation of Hind's engine sound. When I start flying the sound began to dissapear - and make softly till it sounds 10% of Hart's engine sound) And Hind's engine sound "returns", when I look on the left/right  eyeside or make turns on the low altitude...) Really mystical ;D
I use 4.10.1 version + SAS Mod Act 3/06) And I didn't  install other sounds mods after Your's Osprey-Hart)
Thx for all of them, Andrei

I don't know how to explain that - both the Hind and the Hart (as quite a number of other mods from the thirties with inline engine) use the same BMW-VI sound. It is this defined in the emd file:
 SoundName BMW_VI_Series
  PropName middle
  StartStopName std_p

Well the Arresting Hook works only on the Osprey Carrier plane, not on the Hart (although its meshes are hidden in the hier.him file to solve a java compatibility problem - don't wipe them you'll get stuck on ground)

Great additions. Bravo. May I suggest to change the default skin for seaplane version? ;)
Title: Re: Osprey Land/Osprey Seaplane/Osprey Carrier/ Hart/ HartMercury /Hind ready to DL
Post by: Dreamk on August 27, 2012, 03:58:42 PM
All these aircraft have a lot of meshes in common so they share the same folder and therefore the same default skin. To separate them would increase the side of this mod in a way that would not be justified by teh simple advantage of a suited default skin for each version - the custom skin solution is easier.

Absolutely superb guys both the aircraft and the skins, greatly appreciated, thank you very much. 8)

Love this baby.;)

(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm42/Mission_bug/FloaterEstonia.jpg)

Hello juanmalapuente, a partial fix for the default would be to use the skinmod. ;)
Downside to this is all the types are grouped together in the Osprey folder so a default for the seaplane
will also appear on the landplanes.

I did a quick test using the Estonian skin in the summer folder, a Belgium skin in the eto folder and a UK insignia only skin
in a pacific folder which is also the default for Spanish maps.

Unfortunately these aircraft do not display in game markings so using an un-marked aluminium skin as a default for all
would give you just that a blank, maybe the best solution though. :-\

Skin changes made with Archie's template.

Modified Baleares map pacific default.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Umm the planes work fine but I can't seem to affect their skins. No national roundels except for the Spanish roundels show up and the appearance is the same no matter what environment. How do I get that RAF skin and Finnish skin for instance?

Great classic planes !!!


Thank You very much !!

A second fixed front MG, if You want a little bit tweaked gunner cockpit (not absolutely neccessary)  and here we are !!   Just a thought  ;)


´THX a lot

Regarding the Hawker Hart: it needs some small tweaking of the pilots gunsight.

It's a bit skewed, so it's rather hard to hit anything with it. I don't know if its the sight or the MG that needs adjusting.

Your planes looks great on the arming screen !! 8)

Unfortunately I can`t fly them :(

It behaves like I would not have a cockpit !!!

Do I need an other mod installed to make them fly ??   I did not read anything on first page.

Perhaps someody can lead me the way please ?


THX

Doc

PS:  I can fly these planes in my heavy modded DBW  but not in my vanylla test-version of DBW.

I can use them fine on my barely modded DBW 1.71 (added 1 ship and a few planes). I didn't need anything else to make them run. You might've stuffed up the file location or got a corrupted download. And do all the planes in the pack not work? Or just a few of them?

The bombpacks shouldn't be installed in the Il-2 root, but in the same directory in which you installed the plane files. Namely in

....IL-2 Sturmovik 1946/#DBW/

just unzip in the above directory.

i want to use the seaplane variation to fill the gap in a personal campaign for an early small floatplane. the l-5 doesn't really fit the bill for what i need and
the a6mN certainly doesnt...

so if i take these airplanes(i already downloaded them for my modact game so ill just transfer them over.....)

if i take the folder and drop it into my #DBW folder, but i only want to activate the seaplane variant, can i put only the seaplane parts in the .ini/plane.ru/weapon.ru?? will that work? or should i place them all and simply // out the rest or whichever i dont need from the air.ini??

i just dont want to clutter my new DBW install with aircraft i'll never or rarely fly.

You only need to add the lines for the air.ini ... the other 2 are not really necessary.

But aside from that, if you add the line for the seaplane version to your air.ini, and nothing else, only the seaplane will appear in your game. But looking at the folder structure, you will still have to ad everything in the folder to your #DBW folder anyway. There are apparently no separate folders for all the different planes, many probably use the same parts.

So, you will have a less cluttered looking air.ini, but your #DBW folder will still be just as large ... but it should work with only one line added. Try it out ...
