Title: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942 [4.09] [4.10] [4.11] [4.12][4.13]
Post by: asheshouse on November 12, 2012, 03:13:59 AM
USS Yorktown CV5 - 1942
Yorktown Class Aircraft Carrier

Sister ship of the USS Enterprise CV6 and USS Hornet CV8

The most important US carriers in the Pacific at the start of the war were undoubtably the three Yorktown Class carriers. These were at that time the most modern carrier units in the US fleet and along with the Lexington and Saratogo bore the brunt of the action until the new Essex class carriers began to join the fleet in 1943. Yorktown was the first of the class to be commisioned and the first to be lost when she was sunk at the Battle of Midway. The model represents the ship as it was armed after its refit in December 1941 when the 20mm AA was added.

Instructions to clone Yorktown as Hornet or Enterprise:

1. Replace the existing class files with the alternative available above.

2. Copy the model folder and rename as USSEnterpriseCV6_42 or USSHornetCV8_42

[IMG]http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff113/Asheshouse/temp-7.jpg[/img]

3. Copy the text entries for Yorktown in ships.ini and paste a new copy at the bottom of ships.ini, before //EOF.  Replace all of the USSYorktownCV5_42 entries in the new part by USSEnterpriseCV6_42 or USSHornetCV8_42

4. Check the game still starts ok -- cloned ships not yet available.

5. In chief.ini find the two parts with entries for Yorktown and duplicate the text lines. Then replace the USSYorktownCV5_42 entries with USSEnterpriseCV6_42 or USSHornetCV8_42

6. Check the game starts ok -- cloned ships should now appear in the menus.

7. Duplicate stationary.ini and technics_ru.properties entries and replace text as before to complete the installation.

Texture modifications are being done by others. This is intended as a temporary fix to provide Hornet and Enterprise as named options in the menus. More authentic 3D models for each of those may come in the future but are not yet available.

Spookie -- Differences between Yorktown and Enterprise (1942) include minor changes to bridge structure and more significant, but probably fairly easy to model, changes to the AA arrangement.  --- and a name change on the stern. It would probably also need to have some cosmetic skin changes but I have not researched this.

I would not want to simply clone the ship and rename it without making the physical changes.
That would be very easy to do --- but not very authentic.

Enterprise post 1943 has a lot of changes to the bridge and extensive AA changes. Hornet CV-8 also has significant differences to the bridge structure.

For now I am going to take a bit of a break from modelling and spend more time in the game. I have some projects in mind to maybe start in earnest after Xmas.

Yeah, there were definitely differences. Believe me, i was not implying that you should make another model, etc. What I meant was using your Yorktown in a second slot in lieu of having an actual Enterprise. Basically another Yorktown installed, but with the Enterprise name in the ships list in-game (I'd also modify the skin myself to have the correct name). Is such a thing as simple as just copying the Yorktown folder in my mods directory and changing the name to Enterprise in the appropriate lines?
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on November 14, 2012, 01:10:31 AM
Its not quite as simple as that.
In order to clone a ship to a new slot additional class files are required.

However the Yorktown installation did include a spare ship class which you can use.

ShipAsheUSS$USSHornetCV8_42

USSHornetCV8_42

You can duplicate the Yorktown entries in chief.ini and ships.ini and replace the Yorktown name with those.
That will make USSHornetCV8_42 appear in the menu

Finally - in technics_ru.properties add

USSHornetCV8_42           USS Enterprise CV6 - 1942

That will swap the Enterprise name for Hornet in the drop down menus.

If you are working on the skin obviously the name on the stern must be replaced.
Check the position of the "text box" on the alpha channel when you do this. Keep within the alpha cut area.
Try modifying the weathering and the paintwork on the hull so that it looks a little different.
For a major visual change try changing the flight deck to give it a blue camo wash and maybe change the white lines a little. Look at original photos for inspiration, though good photos of Enterprise in the early 42 period seem to be rare.

You might inspire me to do the full model  ;)

The info I have on armament for Enterprise at Midway is:
8x5in; 4x4x1.1in; 34x20mm; 6x0.50cal   --- so Enterprise has a greater number of 20mm Oerlikons compared with Yorktown but loses most of the 0.50cal Machine Guns. Locating the new guns will require some re-modelling of the gallery walkways. The re-modelling of the bridge structure required is pretty easy stuff.

On the subject of spare ship slots. HSFX6 still has spares I think, named Ship0, Ship1, Ship2, Ship3, Ship4.
At least they were retained in HSFX5. These can be used to clone ships as I've described above.

Except use --- Ship$Ship0 etc

For those who have expressed an interest in doing re-paint versions as a temporary fix for Enterprise and Hornet here are some replacement class files.
Overwrite the existing ones in the ShipAshe folder.

Adds slots for USSHornetCV8_42 and USSEnterpriseCV6_42

Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: PlaneEater on November 14, 2012, 11:06:06 AM
Also keep in mind that besides the bridge and AAA fit differences, Hornet had an altered flight deck near the bow; Yorktown and Enterprise had a taper on the port edge of the deck that was instead straight on Hornet.  It made Hornet's deck just a little wider, and that was part of the reason she was chosen for the Doolittle Raid.

Any chance of a UP / DBW version?  Pretty please?   ;D
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on November 14, 2012, 11:43:17 AM
It should work fine in any v4.10 modded installation.
Its just the location of the model folder and ini/properties files which are different.
I only have an HSFX installation so I cant give detailed advice on UP/DBW.
Others will provide a better guide.

As far as I know you just treat the #DBW or #UP3 folder the same as the MODS folder in a classic mod installation.

I have no firm plans yet to do a 3D model of Enterprise or Hornet, but maybe in the future.

No fix required.
Its just telling you that the game cannot locate the USS Hornet mesh files --- because you've not installed them.
It will not cause any problems in your game.

USS Hornet class files were included with the Yorktown download but it will remain as a vacant ship slot until it is used.

That looks good. Maybe add some weathering/wheel marks in the area where the aircraft touch down and perhaps some darkening of the area at the base of the bridge structures.
Deck edging probably needs to stay unchanged though. I used that colour patch for a lot of other minor areas, which probably look wrong with a blue tint.
If you post a link I will copy it to the first post.

I see that I've got the wrong material ID on the face of the step on the perimeter walkway. Whoops!

Instructions on how to clone the ships has been added to the first post. If any of this is unclear or considered to be a "PITA" then say so. Any suggestions will be considered.

Post by: asheshouse on November 16, 2012, 04:44:14 AM
Spookie -- There are some great looking camo schemes for the late war Enterprise but IMO this model is really not right for a late war version, due to the major changes made in 1943 to bridge and armament. I think that any work should concentrate on the early war appearance. I will probably do some 3D work later to model the correct 1942 gun arrangement but I expect I will then be able to work with any skin produced for this model.

Great Ashe!!! Huge work.

Two small notes:

- make damage model of radar and antennas on bridge more fragile, now after run down with plane don´t have effect.
- add two sided material on bridge interior places per lod0 suffice. In detail is possible looking via walls.

Spookie -- There are some great looking camo schemes for the late war Enterprise but IMO this model is really not right for a late war version, due to the major changes made in 1943 to bridge and armament. I think that any work should concentrate on the early war appearance. I will probably do some 3D work later to model the correct 1942 gun arrangement but I expect I will then be able to work with any skin produced for this model.

It's Thanksgiving in the US next week, so I'll use my time off to try some skinning. I've only skinned aircraft until now, so I might need to learn how to make rust streaks and other, non-aircraft weathering. Wish me luck... :)

I put this into the MDS (Dogfight) missions I built for DBS in HSFX and I get no Hayrake codes for the Yorktown, I get them for all other WWII carriers but they don't show for Yorktown at all.
I also put it in DBW Single missions with the same results.

And yes I designated it as USN in Homebase in DBS and put USN planes on it but when you hit the Tab button I get the list, she's on it and I get BD for generic carrier, BO for Saratoga and codes, but I get AM ship code for Yorktown but no Hayrake codes.

Am I the only one that gets this bug? or is it a bug?

Epervier - While I am aware that a number of people continue to use v4.09, and no doubt have sound reasons for this, I am no longer personally supporting it. I have however copied the link to the v4.09 classes to the first post so that they can be more easily found.

The introduction of the Beacon feature in v4.10 was a significant improvement in simulating carrier ops. There are rumours of some new ships being released by TD and I hope this will herald some further enhancement of the maritime features generally.

There are quite a few of the new angle deck Carriers that have no beacons at all, I don't use them very often for that reason alone. I need to find out who made them and provide a list, maybe they will fix them.

The instructions in the model folder tell you how to install in HSFX.
The model was fully tested in HSFXv6.0.17

Read the InstallationNotes.txt
If you have any questions post again.

I assume you already have other mods installed in HSFX6 --- or is this your first?
If so you need to create a MODS folder.
Copy files folder into MODS and rename /MODS/STD  --- then follow the installation notes for Yorktown.

The various edits to *.ini and *.properties files must be made in the files you will find in /MODS/STD

All you need to do to covert it is to open the skin1o.tga file in a graphics editor like gimp or photoshop and reduce the image resolution to 1024x1024. The other 5 files are ok since they are normal IL-2 res.

Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on December 11, 2012, 02:12:12 AM
I've not got that skin installed in 1024x1024 format so I am guessing.

When you reduced the texture size did you save it as a 32bit tga, to preserve the alpha channel?
If you saved it as 24bit then you would have lost the part of the image that makes the "white box" invisible.

User error maybe?  ;)

Hi all:

This is an addon for this mod using the USS Yorktown as it was built by asheshouse. Asheshouse also made the two new slots to give us the USS Enterprise as she was painted in 1944 as well as the USS Hornet for the iconic Doolittle Raid. With research by asheshouse, GrisGer, grumpf44, and myself I slung a little paint around and came up with these versions of the Yorktown Class of CVs.

I use DBW Build 1.71 and all the files and text used work fine. I think I've covered the folder structure for SASModact and UP3 as well as the traditionally modded game. However, if things f#$@ up ask for help from those who have these installs and have this mod working.

Here's some screenshots to show what's been done:

The class files which come with the models are good for v4.10 and v4.11 installations.
Mine are working in HSFX6.
I will copy the download links to the first post in due course.

I discovered during the research on deck markings that I had missed out two guns on Yorktown.
There were 0.5cal MGuns either side of the 20mm Oerlikons on the bow.
I did have conflicting info on that so had left them out but I've now seen a photo shot from the bow which just catches a glimpse of one in the edge of the frame. Photos never lie -- do they?

Awesome work on other skins!

Quick question: is there any way to spawn SBD-s in two lines on the deck or is this the limitation of carriers width and game engine?
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on February 07, 2013, 05:53:22 AM
Using the SBD3, for example, the aircraft do form up in two lines, but with the wing tips overlapping slightly.
The AI has limited intelligence. If you move the two lines further apart to avoid the overlap of the wingtips then the AI are at risk of striking the island structure.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: T}{OR on February 07, 2013, 06:13:32 AM
Just realized I forgot to turn off carrier-take-off mod. With it, they spawn only in one line (7 of them) no matter how I set them up. A line of TBDs with folded wings can be parked next to them.

Without the mod, they indeed make two lines, but starting from plane no.8 there is no more width in the back for the two lines to continue so only 3 are placed while effectively there could be three more.

AI had no problems taking off the way it is set up now.

So, my last question would be - do the lines converge near the stern?

Thank you Asheshouse for this excellent work

As it turns out, I am currently working on a doolittle raid scenario. Do you think that by altering the code for the files you posted one could make 6 B25s spawn on the deck? Or maybe even at unaligned headings (i.e. diagonally facing each other) as they were actually parked on the deck for spacing options? AI taking off won't be much of a problem, since most of the planes will be manned by humans, and I could always assign the remaining AI planes to be on the left row for avoidance of collision.

thanks

Post by: asheshouse on February 07, 2013, 07:01:54 AM
First off, all of this current work is the efforts of Plowshare.

Its not possible, as far as I know, to have the aircraft spawn at an angle.
At present you will get 4 B25 to spawn.
By adjusting the coords of the _Park hooks you may be able to get more.
I suggest that you make a backup and then play around with the spacings.
The Park00 and Park05 can probably not be moved further forward due to the takeoff run length.
Try increasing the ship speed in FMB to improve the takeoff distance.

I'm using v4.101 with DBW Build 1.71. What carrier take off mod are you referring to? I can only get three B-25s to spawn on the deck and a single line of 7 SBDs.

The Park00 and Park05 can probably not be moved further forward due to the takeoff run length.
Try increasing the ship speed in FMB to improve the takeoff distance.

This would be a great example of being able to use a catapult. Could you see a deck-load of aircraft all with their engines running waiting to use the cat? Methinks I'm gonna try this on one of the Essex class carriers and move the Park00 and Park05 waaaay forward and see what happens.

edit:  Okay - that won't work at all - all the HullX.msh files are in gobbledegook and I'm not gonna mess around with them. Damn! I thought it was a good idea.

Thanks asheshouse. Maybe when I have some free time I will give it a go. I would only like to see two lines of SBDs running through the whole stern for take off, thats all.

I'm using v4.101 with DBW Build 1.71. What carrier take off mod are you referring to? I can only get three B-25s to spawn on the deck and a single line of 7 SBDs.

HSFX 6 with CarrierTakeOff for HSFX6 v5.5. I too can only get 3 B-25s to spawn at any carrier type.

You just have to see these skins in the game to believe it. Superb work. I only wish we had 6 slots, one for the Coral Sea version Yorktown.

Since one of DBS guys compiled this into a working package (HSFX compatible) I will not post it here directly. You can get it off DBS forums by following my homepage link.

I only wish we had 6 slots, one for the Coral Sea version Yorktown.

That could be arranged, but how would the Coral Sea version differ from the Midway version? I was not aware that any changes to armament or camo scheme were carried out when Yorktown was hurriedly repaired at Pearl before departing for Midway.

I was under the impression that the paintscheme was compliant with the armament for the period you built her. My assumption was wrong, especially when you put things into context. :)

I will keep the original mod for pre-war missions and training then.

Post by: asheshouse on February 09, 2013, 07:03:27 AM
Yes -- My original paint scheme was intended to be representative of Coral Sea but was largely based on the scheme used on Lexington. Plowshares latest works supersedes mine, and follows further detailed research, so we still only have a single slot (1942) for Yorktown. There are no plans to produce an authentic pre Dec 41 paint scheme.

Plowshare, I can't thank you enough for coming up with these beautiful skins on Asheshouse's model! I just have one question/request if it is possible. The original Yorktown class all had 2 catapults installed in the bow (in addition to one athwartships on the hangar deck) and according to a person in my squad, it could be possible to enable functioning catapults on the ship (say, the late model Enterprise) provided the cats are represented on the skin, presumably so that one would know where to taxi up to and chalk in. Would it be possible for you to make a change to this mod with catapults showing on the deck of the skin for the late Big "E"??

If someone can produce a simple texture tga showing only the catapult  I can incorporate this into the model as an overlay patch.

Add to model folder.
Cat.mat
Cat.tga
Cat01.msh
hier.him      /// overwrites existing. Only change is new text lines to the end of the file.

To actually get them to operate as catapults will probably take a bit more work.
I dont think I enabled this function in the class files.

Copy of PM from -)-MAILMAN-
Better to have the questions and responses here in case it also helps others.
Quote
I installed your Yorktown Class CVs Mod. I chose option 1 of not having installed any of your ships nor your Yorktown CV mod. I followed each and every step to the letter including starting the game when the directions prompted after completing a particular step. When I added the below text lines in the chief file in the top section and started the game it crashed to the desktop at 70%:

USSYorktownCV5_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSYorktownCV5_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSEnterpriseCV6_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSEnterpriseCV6_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSEnterpriseCV6_44 ships.ShipAshe$USSEnterpriseCV6_44 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSHornetCV8_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSHornetCV8_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSHornetCV8_42D ships.ShipAshe$USSHornetCV8_42D 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat

If I remove these three text line entries:

USSEnterpriseCV6_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSEnterpriseCV6_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSEnterpriseCV6_44 ships.ShipAshe$USSEnterpriseCV6_44 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSHornetCV8_42D ships.ShipAshe$USSHornetCV8_42D 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat

and left just these two text line entries:

USSYorktownCV5_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSYorktownCV5_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat
USSHornetCV8_42 ships.ShipAshe$USSHornetCV8_42 1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat

The game loads and I can see the USS Yorktown CV5_42 & USS Hornet CV8_42 in the FMB and I have created simple test missions and both work.

Can you point me in the right direction where to look for the problem that is causing the CTD at 70% when these text lines get added.

I will look into it and respond.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on February 17, 2013, 10:23:29 AM
I presume from your notes that you have downloaded the latest version, with Plowshares skins and have no other ShipAshe ships installed.

Are you using HSFX6,with a MODS folder, or another type of installation?

In MODS\ShipAshe do you have 8 class files, with the names like DAA4672C61146340 ?

If you have two of the versions working ok and tested running in missions then the basic setup must be ok.

Install the other three one at a time, testing after each one.
Only make the text entries in chief.ini and in ships.ini.
Start with EnterpriseCV6_42
If it does not run then post the error message from your logfile
If it works then add the other text entries for stationary.ini etc

Ashes,

I don't know what is going on. I installed these ships using option 1 in my ModAct 3.06 and The game loads up fine but I lost the Use of my FMB. Before I installed these ships I had the FMB Functionality.

Please Help.

"Are you using HSFX6,with a MODS folder, or another type of installation?"  HSFX 6 latest version and I have a Mods folder.

"In MODS\ShipAshe do you have 8 class files, with the names like DAA4672C61146340 ?"  I only have seven class files which are listed below.

Mailman - with only a few other added mods memory should not be a problem.

Many others have already installed this successfully and all my testing is done on HSFX6.0.17
Its very strange that you have two working but not the others.

Ensure that you only make the text entries in two places in chief.ini and in ships.ini
Only add one ship at a time.
Only add the other text entries when you have it working.

If you still have problems then post your logfile here.

  Could you please post your full inis here?

  I cannot make the catapuls of the Vallery Forge and Boxer to work.

  Eventhough if anybody has the chance of preparing a full package of carriers and other ships including a complete and not 20 different folders of all Western's and others Carriers / Ships that could be easily applied to HSFX6, it would be just great!

I haven't been on the basement computer the last two day, been sick.

I will check both chief.ini and ships.ini for duplicate entries first.

If I understand you correctly I should completely uninstall your mod and its text lines and add only one ship and only its text lines?  I assume all of the class files need to be in the AsheShip folder even though there will only be a single ship installed?

I will copy the log file after each install.

All the class files need to be in the ShipAshe folder regardless of how many carriers are enabled.

You have two working?  -- Thats fine. Leave them installed.
All of the text entries can be put into ships.ini -- Game should still work fine with your two carriers.

Then add the remaining carriers to chief.ini one at a time, check the game runs after each one.

The Yorktown Class can all be installed in HSFX6 using the instructions in the first post.

Korea Carriers and Colossus is not something I have been involved in.

First off, catapults are not enabled on these ships. Not intentionally anyway.

The "visual fix" was a first step, but the coding for cats would have to be done by others.

It should be simple, and the same procedure in any version.

Cat01.msh is a new mesh, two rectangles.
Cat.tga and Cat.mat are the files which provide the texture.

Put the 3 files in the model folder with all the other msh/tga/mat files. They will not overwrite anything.

Backup the existing hier.him and replace with the new one. Thats it.

Okay I went through and removed the text files for:

USSEnterpriseCV6_42
USSEnterpriseCV6_44
USSHornetCV8_42D - Doolittle Raid

I also renamed and placed a - in front of the three folders for these three carriers in the ShipAshe folder.

I left USSYorktownCV5_42 & USSHornetCV8_42 alone and left all the text files in place.  I started the game and it successfully loads and I can see these two carriers in the FMB.

I then renamed only the folder  USSEnterpriseCV6_42, removing the - .
I then added ship text lines in ships and the game loaded successfully.  Below is the log.lst file:

The error message refers to "speed".

Check that in ships.ini the text for Enterprise includes these lines at the beginning.

Code: [Select]
[USSEnterpriseCV6_42]
Description  Yorktown Class Carrier

Icon         shipDestroyer

// Model

// Motion Parameters

Speed          50.0 // 32.5 knots (60.2km/h) max)
SoundMove      models.Ship

This is the only place where "speed" unique to Enterprise is entered.
All the text for Enterprise should be the same as Yorktown except for the change of ship name.

It does not matter what order the ships texts are entered into ships.ini

I think it something goofy with mediafire.  Some links work and others don't.  I just saw a P-47 skin file that wouldn't download either.

benitomuso -- What you refer to is not anything to do with the Yorktown Class Carriers.
The Yorktown Class can all be installed in HSFX6 using the instructions in the first post.

Korea Carriers and Colossus is not something I have been involved in.
Better to post a question in the threads for those mods.

Ashe

Ashe,
               not to go against your answer, but my original question clearly says this (for your MOD) plus the Korean and blablabla MODs. So I would say the word "this" speaks about "this" let's say your MOD.

  I have not asked you Ashe to provide me a solution but All (just read my text) if someone had all the stuff together (including your ones, because I want to achieve all the carriers together) and could share that.

  Obviously your MOD following the instructions can be installed as obviously any of the others too, so if you have something against making life of people easier by taking the benefits of the troubles and efforts other did to make all work together: sorry, it wasn't my intention to disturb you.

  Regards,
                         Pablo

When I looked in my Mediafire Files the original Yorktown files had been tagged as blocked.
No idea why. I did not get any notification.
It seemed to be the only one affected.
I deleted the file and replaced it with a new rar file with a different file name and file size.
All ok so far.
I can also download all of your test 7z files ok.

This may not mean anything, but ....

I have noticed that in the FMB for both USSYorktownCV5_42 and USSHornetCV8_42 that I can put values for speed in much higher than 60.2 km/h and it gets accepted.  If I try to input a higher value than the maximum allowed for any other ship in the FMB its speed reverts to the maximum for that ship.

Post by: asheshouse on February 25, 2013, 02:55:51 AM
Mailman - In FMB I can load a selection of Yorktown types, set speed to 100 km/h and run mission.
Speed does not revert back to max 

In the line
Code: [Select]
Speed          50.0 // 32.5 knots (60.2km/h) max)
I had thought that the game engine did not read any of the figures after // but maybe I am wrong?

If I use stock ships the speed reverts back to the max speed figure are you describe.
I've never noticed this before and don't know what causes it.

I still dont know why you are only able to see two of the Yorktown types?
Are you using Ship Extension Mod?
Are you using HSFX6 Expert mode?

I am not normally using those.

Ashe,

The program takes what ever speed value that you enter in the ships ini entry
and doubles it for max speed for that ship or boat.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on February 25, 2013, 12:31:46 PM
Thanks. I never realised or even thought about that before.
It now makes sense.
But for the Yorktown Class I set the default speed high to facilitate takeoffs, so the max speed can now be set unrealistically high.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on February 26, 2013, 01:51:50 AM
Mailman -- I've looked over the files in JSGME which are loaded when you enable Expert mode. Can't see anything which would affect the Yorktown ships.

Is it possible that you have overwritten the class files with an earlier version at some point?
The correct files are those in this link http://www.mediafire.com/?1v8kztpku2tzi1y

As far as I am aware you are unique in having this problem, so maybe some file or files are corrupted?
All I can suggest is to remove the Yorktown mod completely and re-install from scratch using a fresh download.

I just tried the link and this is the message I got:

Archive Download Blocked

The file you attempted to download is an archive that is damaged or possibly encrypted. MediaFire does not support unlimited downloads of broken or encrypted archives and the limit for this file has been reached. This file may only be distributed from a premium account.

We have informed the owner that sharing of this file has been limited and how they can resolve this issue.

Still have questions, or think we've made a mistake? Please contact support for further assistance.

Seems that Mediafire is continuing to be a PITA.
I have sent them an enquiry to try to resolve the problem.
Meanwhile try the 4shared link on the first post.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting MediaFire.

The owner of this file is a free user and only has a limited number of shares for this file type each week, they have already met their max for this week. That is the reason it is blocked.

We appreciate you choosing MediaFire.

Robert

I've been using Mediafire since 2008 and have never had this problem before!

asheshouse:

Is the .7z file for this the same as the one I posted a few pages back? If so, could I re-upload it to Mediafire for folks to get it from MediaFire?

On a related note: If the corporate f@cking honchos in their f@cking glass offices are trying to find a way to make more profit how about everyone start having everyone else upload copies of files to MediaFire? As an example, I just looked through the first four pages of this thread and found about two dozen different responders. What if each one uploaded a copy of the Yorktown file on MediaFire and posted a link for that file? Multiply that by each and every mod that comes into SAS and maybe we could swamp their storage?

Or, we could make it public that we're taking our business elsewhere.

The last file I uploaded is your 7z file but I renamed it to rar (still works the same).
I thought the name change might fix things but it didn't.

I still would prefer if Mediafire get their act together since it has been generally reliable, but if their policy is to discourage long term free users then there is not much which can be done.
After all its their business model not mine.

I am still waiting for a response from Robert at Mediafire to specific questions, like exactly how many shares a week are permitted, when does the week start, exactly what file types are affected, stuff like that. In the mean time the 4shared link seems to be working.

Thank you for contacting MediaFire. I'm sorry to hear you are having problems sharing files. Split Archive, .zip/.rar for example, files are limited to being shared 10 times per week from Free accounts.  The week resets on the same day as you started your Free account, meaning that if you started your account on a Wedneday in 2008, your Split Archive counter will reset every Wednesday.  Premium users do not have the same limitations as Free users for the distribution of these types of files as long as they have the available bandwidth.  We currently offer Premium plans as low as $18 per year that would both increase the maximum file size that you could share and eliminate the weekly limit on Split Archive sharing.

We appreciate you choosing MediaFire.

The limit of 10 downloads a week is clearly a new policy.
Previous file downloads have greatly exceeded that figure.
Looks like I need to find a new home for my files.

I feel that the hosts files have too much work ... and they are all disgusting for users by forcing them to take paid accounts!  >:( >:( >:(

Took a clean 4.11.1 installation.  Started Game No Issues
Installed HSFX 6.  Started Game no issues only HistoryHSFX Mod enabled, no mods installed.
Used HSFX updater and let it update my installation to HSFX 6.0.17.  Started Game no issues only HistoryHSFX Mod enabled, no mods installed.
Created a Mods folder.
Installed the Yorktown Class Carriers Mod that I downloaded a couple of nights ago from your link.
I copied the text files for USSEnterpriseCV6_42 into ships.ini, chief.ini (both top and bottom), stationary.ini, technics_ru.
Only enabled ShipAshe folder and Files folder and no other mods.
Started game. CTD 70%.
Removed this line from chief.ini     USSEnterpriseCV6_42   ships.ShipAsheUSS$USSEnterpriseCV6_42     1 icons/shipDestroyer.mat  Started game and no issues.  I can see USS Yorktown and USS Hornet.

Just to check I downloaded again from the link three posts up and pasted the downloaded class files into my install (after backing up the existing). All still worked ok and can see all of the carriers.

What happens if you just load Enterprise?

Some problems which may be related to memory issues can be solved by using the SAS Selector
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,16403.0.html
The stock game, as far as I understand it, is limited regarding the memory it can access.
SAS Selector overcomes this.  I have it installed.

TotalModder is a further development of this, but so far I've not been able to get it to work with my HSFX6 install.  http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,17645.0.html

I finally found the issue.  All five ships show up and work.   There was nothing wrong with the text files, but rather four of the ships class files were duplicated and placed into the wrong folder.  As soon as I removed the four out of place files everything worked

Somehow four of the below files (don't remember exactly which four they were) ended up inside the MODS/Files folder and these four were duplicated with the other three in the MODS/ShipAshe folder.

So I want to thank you for your patience and help trying to figure this out.

Mailman - Thanks for explaining that. I never thought of the possibility of the class files having been duplicated.
That explains it. May have been an earlier set of class files which did not define all of the current versions of the class. The game engine uses the first one it finds and ignores any subsequent copies.

I have been trying to figure out why I am having such a frame rate hit when using the following ships in missions:

USS Colorado_41 & USS Tennessee_41 (included as part of HSFX 6.0.17)

Also after I added the below ships:
 
USS YorktownCV-5_42
USS EnterpriseCV-6_42
USS EnterpriseCV-6_44
USS HornetCV-8_42D
USS Hornet CV-8_42

I just added:

USS Arizona_41  (GoFo)

Same results.

So I opened up the FMB; chose to open map;  selected Coral Sea and then one at a time I placed the above listed objects on the map one at a time.  When I depressed ctrl + enter and the view was at eye level I zoomed in the view and  I noticed that there were gunners manning the AA guns on each of these ships.

I then verified that in my config.ini I had chosen the setting 3dgunners=0

Can these gunners be prevented from being drawn with these ships (temporarily until I can upgrade the graphics card and system ram)?  Is there a file, text line that can be renamed/edited/remarked to prevent them from being drawn.

Thanks

I have no idea how to create the model in such a way that  3dgunners=0 would have any effect.

If anyone knows please post.

However they only appear as full models when LOD0 is displayed. From LOD1 outwards, that is from about 250m, the gunner model become simple sprites textured on flat planes. Beyond LOD3 they disappear.

The ship models themselves are quite high poly, viewed in LOD0.
What spec PC and graphics card are you running the game on.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on March 13, 2013, 07:04:19 AM
3dgunners=0 works for stock ships the same as for artillery etc.
It is just not working in my new ship models.
Maybe something to do with the *.mat file naming, or some other part naming convention.

Its never bothered me because I always use 3dgunners=1 but it would be nice to correct this.

After a little investigation I've found this in the ships java code

Code: [Select]
    private void initMeshMats()
    {
        if(Config.cur.b3dgunners)
        {
            return;
        } else
        {
            hierMesh().materialReplaceToNull("Sailor");
            hierMesh().materialReplaceToNull("Sailor1o");
            hierMesh().materialReplaceToNull("Sailor2p");
            return;
        }
    }

Which I guess means that 3dgunners=0 will make null any textures linked to Sailor.mat, Sailor1o.mat or Sailor2p.mat

In Artillery or Tank models the equivalent is Pilot1.mat

Have I got that right?

But Yorktown Class uses Sailor1o.mat and Sailor2p.mat so why does it not work?
The answer is that it does work, exactly as it should.

Set 3dgunners=0 then look at a ship in FMB -- The gunners are still there.
But switch to Play Mission -- the gunners are gone.

Works the same for stock or mod ships, provided the naming convention for the *.mat files is followed.

Thanks Mailman. I've learnt something new.

Ashe

Now Gofo's ships on the other hand use a different mat name, SailorUSo.mat
That will not work for 3dgunners=0
To fix  rename to Sailor1o.mat
and in every Head*.msh file search for SailorUSo and change to Sailor1o
This will appear multiple times in each Head* file.

What spec PC and graphics card are you running the game on.

When mods first came out I had been running perfect settings and had 3D gunners turned on.  When we were basically forced to install the all inclusive mod packs with their embedded mods (you don't always know all of the mods that were included) I gradually had to start turning off features eventually this included the 3D Gunners.  I never had a problem with ships only until I installed the latest HSFX and the Colorado Class & Tennessee class were included.  When I put these two ships in a test mission with a stock carrier the frame rates dropped.  Removed the ships and frame rates went up.  I next added the Yorktown Class mod of yours and when I tested each ship there was a frame rate loss.  I will run my carrier landing test mission to see if the gunners show up while running the mission instead of the FMB.  I can let you know if the gunners are on the ships or not after I run the test mission in a little while (husband duty watching home improvement shows with my wife at the moment.)

:-X

By the way, what is high poly and what is LOD0?
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on March 14, 2013, 02:21:45 AM
The major influence on FPS is the number of graphics objects drawn on the screen at a time.
Swing your viewpoint around a scene and you will see FPS changing depending on what is in view.
The Berlin map is good to demonstrate this.

Each model has anything up to 6 LODs (Levels of Detail)
As you zoom out the detailed model is replaced by a less detailed version to maintain a better FPS.
LOD0 is the most detailed model, only seen when you zoom in close.

The models are constructed with triangular planes, usually termed polys (polygons).
So a cube will have 12 polys.

All of the models in IL-2 would in modelling terms be classed as Low Poly, to maximise FPS.
But some are not so low as others.

A stock battleship model has about 15000-20000 polys.
My Yorktown class has about 24000. Not sure about Colorado and Tennessee, but probably similar.

I have found by experimentation that the size of textures used is generally more critical than poly count, but these things are all a balance.

I consider that my PC/Graphics Card is sort of mid range in computer terms, so if it works for me it will work for most people, but maybe not if you have a lower spec machine.

I have the Lexington and Lexington_42 working together.

Its still there, just re-skinned.
Its exactly the same model and same object name so your missions should not be affected.
Only the skin will be different.

If you want to keep the old skin for some reason then just copy the old tga files into the USSYorktownCV5_42 folder.

I have no plans to add flight deck crew to any of these ships.

THX ashe, only one question, not only about these carriers, but for stock carriers too.
I'm working on creating a mission simulating Doolittle's raid on Tokyo, but found that the maximum B-25s the USS Hornet could carry is 3, the other stock US carriers showed the same problem.
So if there's no way of adding spawn points over a carrier, how should I do to make the mission like the history, I mean, there were 16 planes that took off from the Hornet, right?

I have serious doubts that the game engine is capable of packing in B-25s as tightly as the Doolittle Raiders did.
Title: Re: USS Yorktown CV-5 1942
Post by: asheshouse on February 18, 2014, 01:23:44 AM
There would need to be some new java coding done to pack B-25's tighter.
I don't know how to do it, but suspect it would be possible.

At present all you can do is to start with your 3 on the carrier.
The excess numbers will air start above the carrier.

yeah, that's what I'm doing currently.
I have also tried to make the other B-25s spawn on the carrier some minutes later. That's to say, My squad takes off at 7:00, the second squad at 7:03, the third 7:06, etc. However it turned out all the other planes would not start from the deck, they just spawn in the sky, don't know why.

That's why I say "feeling", :) I think the fact is that the way the game engine arrange planes on deck makes the carrier looks smaller. In fact all the 16 B-25 were placed on deck of Hornet and they all successfully took off.

Are you using the Yorktown only download or the one with Plowshares new skins?
My install has the latter. - though I don't think there was any difference in the meshes.

Your fps generally seem quite low. What are your system specs?

I use Plowshare skins, but a bit modified. My system specs is pretty low, so here I think it hapens because of the too high "mass" of the shadown - too many polygons... IL-2 has its limitation around 3000 poly per mesh...

You could try and copy/paste the LOD1 shadow meshes and overwrite the LOD0 shadows to solve your problem.

Maybe you would only need to do this for the Hull1, Hull2 and Hull3 meshes.

Well, I think some day it will be fixed.
