About This File
This is simple remod, overhaul of Florian's Sea King model.
Model itself is Florian work and all hail to him for his work.
The names of all contributors, modders, suppliers, etc =MUST= be listed in any new readmes.
This package and any part of it may NOT in any way, shape or form be used in any payware additions.
Any persons wishing to make further modfications, MUST remember to put everyone's name in it.
This mod represents SH-3D and some versions of SH-3A used by US Navy for CSAR operations.
Althoug Florian's SH-3 represents something between A-D Generaly it fits here but are not hundred% correct.
There were also two D versions with small differences...but this is different story.
This is version 2 uploadaed with smaler size of skins.
You can also download only skins in seperate rar file.
Model itself is untouched by me. Only in A version ive removed few bits by ini work.
Using Florian's skins ive made templates and new skins.
In this pack SH-3D skins are:
HS-4 'Black Knights' USS Ticonderoga 1971
HS-5 'Night Dippers' USS Wasp 1970
HS-11 'Dragonslayers' USS John F. Kennedy 1976
SH-3A is made for Wings over Vietnam mod.
It represents only one unit:
HS-6 'Indians' USS Kearsarge 1966-1968 at Yankee Station.
Plus additional one skin with shortly used camo paint.
All decals are made by me and are based on available documents and photos. So lets say - historicaly correct.
This helo got new ini work. So if you have old Florian SeaKing - do a backup. Becasue this is new and you might not like it.
new aircraft data ini with new flight model, and few differences
animation keys reassigned.
Sonar and MAD operations are same as before, ANIMATION KEYS 3,4,5
Right side rear slide doors are opened as bomb_bay
left side slide door as ANIMATION KEY 1
Rotor brake ANIMATION KEY 7
Folding rotor ANIMATION KEY 8
Ive put some speed limits for animations up to 30 kts for doors,and rotor animation so you can fold onboard vessel.
Flying is done same way as in my helos. Vector thrust controll, etc.. it is pretty simple.
There is new cockpit. As replacement ive done some simple generic cockpit for SH-3. Since there is lot of versions of SeaKing lot of pits, this is generic and simple build, that should fit here.
Consider it as beta, few things are not working there.
THIS COCKPIT FOR SH-3 SEA KING OR ANY PART OF IT MUST NOT BE HOSTED OR
