USN = Iowa BB61 v1.2 ( Also tested in HSF6, it works)
« on: August 18, 2012, 02:34:05 AM »

S!
Version 1.2( Optimized Version + New colours)



Image from Bravo. Why can I never create such a good one?

UPDATED 09-04-2013 , Painted the Hull and superstructure surfaces to bring the ship closer to it's historical colours. I'm not the best texturer in the world, so I hope it is better now

UPDATED 31-03-2013 , FIXED A BUG CAUSING DAMAGE MODEL TO HAVE WRONG POSITION!!

//12-03 --> fixed a tga file that had compression and could make ship not show in FMB. if you had this prob plz redownload.
Sorry for any inconvinience//

Instructions:
1)Download
2)Extract and copy the 2 folders to il2/#UP# or #DBW# , etc
3)The instructions to add the entries correctly are in "AddThis.txt" files you will get upon extracting.
4) If you do not want the dead sailors chk the instructions for that also contained in the pack

Thanks To:
*Asheshouse for his usual top quality help
*Western for helping me solve a hook issue
*GoFo for spotting a texture back early in the works and great suggestions on colours
*Unknown modder that made the moving flag in Essex class since I used his work and animated texture to see what I need for my moving flag

And let's not forget:
*1C for this great sim
*TD for their work on the sim

WIP thread is here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,24858.0.html

[Changes from v1]
* Proper Shadow meshes/ shadow mesh probs fixed
* fixed 2 collision meshes and altered quite a few
* Fixed wrong smoothness issue in many parts
* Fixed most bad reflections
* Optimized the whole thing, size is cut down to 41.7MB from 60.1MB in previous version without loss in quality
* Added dead crew to 40mm stations for those that select that option

EDIT: It should also work in 4.12

A great addition for late war and jet war scenarios.
Thanks for doing it.

Another great work mate!

It's a really hard target for a blue pilot....but I bet that they'll do their best....to test her!

Thanks a lot!

I think the first time that appeared was on the PT Boat mod. SAS_Malone was involved but maybe was not the originator? Before that there were moving flags created for static flagpole objects? Who did that? -- Anyway, its great that these little visual improvements get re-used again and again.

The absence of a 'post Pearl Harbour' US battleship has always been a large hole in the game. Not any more - thank you, Diving Hawk.
