Glad to know you guys are liking this resurrection of a very old mod, I enjoyed making the changes to make it fully compatible with user skins, thanks to Herb who set me on the path to fixing it and to those who created it in the first place. 8)


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Swordfish MkI_Beta3 by 6°Stormo "Diavoli Rossi"
6Sc.Tamat - 3D model
6S.Maraz - import, java classes, coding and FM
CanonUK - new default skins
Ranwers - new cockpit

From original readme:
"This beta version has not finished original cockpits: the pilot's cockpit is taken from I-16, while
the gunner's cockpit is a very rough version of the original Swordfish gunner's cockpit. The skin of
this aircraft is a beta version too.

For the rest, the model is completed and playable. It has full ordnance, including torpedoes, various
types of bombs and illuminating flares (these are dropped using the weapons3 key).

The rear gun has two positions: stowed and deployed (ready to fire). The gun automatically deploys when
there are enemy aircraft, ships or vehicles around, and stowes again when the threat is away. Can also
be deployed/stowed by the player using the airbrake key.

The aircraft has arrestor hook, folding wings and automatically deployed wing slats."

Note:
Beowulf did the original float Swordfish for 410 but did add a 409 FM for it.

Thank you very much for the updated information Bwf, really appreciated. 8)

I could not actually find a readme in the versions I had in my 4.12 or 4.10 installs so all I knew was that Beowulf had done something with the float version, made it or updated was unclear.

I will add your information to the first page for all to see who might want to add the update I posted. ;)


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Really good, thank you. Perhaps one small addition might be possible, in the shape of the torpedo sighting bar which ran horizontally in front of the pilot.

Hello oldschoolie, sorry to say my work on this is done, any further updates are down to others. ;)

My remit was to try and bring the aircraft and floats together on one skin to make things much more user friendly for the skin artists, that is done as best I could manage, if we look deeper into the mod I am sure there will be much found that needs work, I did toy with the thought of actually making a full set of actual Swordfish floats but left well alone in the end, from previous experience it usually means you getting bogged down for weeks/months trying to sort things so I will leave it for others out there.

I was actually retired from all this madness but off I went again on a mission, back to my truck model now. :D

Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hi,

The mediafire download for this mod says "Generating new download key" and goes in a loop.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Glibble media-fire has been doing that for the past week.
Dont know what the problem is.
All I can say is keep checking back and try to down load it later.....

Have a good day and be safe... ;)

Here is a photo of the Swordfish Iron Sight



Don't know if this is too long after the horse has left the barn , but if someone wants to attend this it would be great.
