Seaplane Missions - In Progress

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a naval terrain so I can fly single missions with seaplanes. The entire terrain is water. All the airfields are seaplane tenders (they didn't have a flight deck, they used cranes to transfer the planes in and out of the water.) All the targets are warships. All the trucks are cargo ships. All the tanks are torpedo boats. All the balloons are airships. All the ships have AA guns so flights should be challenging.

 

I've made about a dozen ships, I'm still working on skins and data files. I also have more seaplanes started - a Rumpler 6B1 is almost finished, a Sopwith Baby is about half done, and a Hanriot HD2 is started. It will be a while before everything is ready to fly.

 

I figured out how to make a wake for ship that is parked, you can see it in some of the pics. I modified the wake emitter from First Eagles. I put a fake engine in the ship and assigned the new wake emitter as the exhaust. So instead of spewing smoke from the funnel, it spews wake from the back of the ship. It looks pretty good from the air, but it starts to break up when you get down to sea level.

Wow! This looks great - First Eagles 'carrier' ops - who'd have believed it! Love the Rumpler; it was always one of the most elegant of WW1 seaplanes and a great choice for this mod. :drinks:

Outstanding job!Why don't create something like your models also for Italy, the famous Regia Marina and patrol boats like the famous MAS used by Gabriele D'Annunzio and Luigi Rizzo.Don't forget also the war between the German U-boot and merchant ships in the Atlantic Ocean.

I think the SF2 people seem to forget that we only have one person at the moment making 3D models for FE/FE2 where SF2 has quite a few people making 3D models for SF2.

 

As a result, the SF2 people need to go pester the other SF2 3D modelers and let Stephen1918 continue to make the FE/FE2 3D models for this community.
