Hi, karla :)
A better carrier can be found here - http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=37026.0 It's USS Hancock CVA 19 with much more detail.
Please tell me whether it is possible to use 3D model CVA-19 to replace its model of CVA-34? Thx.

Hey I got a really stupid question but... Does this need the angled deck pack or is it stand alone. If it needs the mod can you please make a standalone. My Dads Dad served on this ship and I and him would really appreciate it if there was a stand alone that I could easily install so my dad could play. Thanks
P.S  Also could you kinda make it not need ship extensions (Or at least make me a version without the torpedo stuff.) cause that the thing that makes me not want to go through all that searching in files.
Thanks, Again from Hayden Creede Oberrick Stalnaker.

Hey Hayden, I think you can make a stand-alone for your Dad. A method that should work is to download CVA-31 Bon Homme Richard and use a couple of CVA-34 Oriskany textures to make a really good looking Mighty O. CVA-31 is stand-alone - and much better quality - and should be quite easy to install on your Dad's PC with a modded IL-2 installation. You replace the '31' markings on Bon Homme Richard with '34' from Oriskany.

Go here http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,46424.0.html and follow downloads and installation instructions. Test that BHR actually works first. Then, in your new IL-2 mods folder ...\USSBonHommeRichardCVA31_1965\3do\Ships\USSBonHommeRichardCVA31_1965 find these seven flight deck and island texture files: deckL2048.tga, deckL1024.tga, deckL512.tga, deckL4096.tga, skin1o.tga, skin1p.tga, skin1q.tga. Replace these CVA-31 files with the identical files from your CVA-34 Oriskany downloaded and extracted files (you don't have to install CVA-34). Also, you have to rename a copy of your CVA-34 'deckL2048.tga' to 'deckL4096.tga' and replace the equivalent file in the CVA-31 installation.

It's best to leave the CVA-31 folder names as they are. It's not so neat but if you rename BHR to Oriskany I think the game will crash.

An alternative method is to install BHR CVA-31 and edit the seven .tga texture files with a graphics package, say GIMP, and change the '31's to '34's.

I think you need to install western's Ship Extensions and Engine MOD for full catapult and arrestor actions and you will definitely need to install High Resolution / True Color Textures Mod package by Carsmaster and Storebror to see the boat in all its glory.

The method I have suggested hasn't been tested but should work; the '34' on deck may change to '31' at extra long distances but I don't think it will be so noticeable. The downside to getting things for FREE is that it usually involves a little work on your part.

Good Luck to you and your Dad; karla
