Schleswig Holstein - Predreadnought Kriegsmarine Battleship
« on: October 06, 2017, 04:08:10 AM »

Schleswig-Holstein was one of two Deutschland-class Pre-Dreadnought battleships commisioned in 1908 which remained in service in the Kreigsmarine during WWII. The other of the class was the Schlesien.

Schleswig-Holstein fired the first shots of World War II when she bombarded the Polish base at Danzig's Westerplatte in the early morning hours of 1 September 1939. Both ships served as shore bombardment vessels and convoy escorts in the Baltic and as anti-aircraft support in harbours. The ship was sunk by British bombers in Gotenhafen in December 1944. Schleswig-Holstein was subsequently salvaged by the Soviet Navy for use as a target. She was scuttled near Osmussaar Island near Tallinn in the Baltic Sea in 1948. Her hull was used as a target ship until the 1960s. The wreck of Schleswig-Holstein is now protected by the Estonian National Heritage Board as a historic shipwreck.

Installation Instructions:

Checked with SASModActv6.1  -  v4.12 compatible.  Should work fine in other versions except v4.09.

Extract the contents of the download to a temporary folder on Desktop.
Copy the ShipKM folder into your #SAS folder.
Check the game still runs ok.
You will find the required text entries in txt files within the Schleswig Holstein Instructions folder.
Make text entries in chief.ini and ships.ini and check game runs and Schleswig Holstein appears.
Make remaining text entries.

Folder structure should be: game root\#SAS\ShipKM\3do\Ships\SchleswigHolstein\

Notes:  The model includes "placeholder" damage meshes and textures only. Further work will be required to produce a visually detailed damage model. Collision boxes are simplified.

The existing textures would benefit from more skilled artistic attention.

Whoa..awesome.. excellent detail.. obviously a lot of work and research.
Has anybody here ever set up a naval battle in a mission?
You could probably re-enact a small version of the Battle of Jutland in a mission with enough ships. but that's a LOT of modeling.
And of course you'd have to have flares and searchlights on the ships for the night action.
