OHKA prototype

Recommended Posts

I forgot this, I hope you don't mind when I keep pointing out R/S issues on 3D models, I mean it's not like pointing out "buggy" 3D shadows in EAWPRO for not liking them but a real bug.  It's not an attack on anyone in particular either but merely intended to maintain a high standard, and I for one do care about it. I don't feel it's particularly attractive to new players to see such porblems in screenshots. Any progress with the cunningtower?

Doesn't matter to me what you post.

In fact, it makes my case.

Players do not care one whit if there is an occasional, minor R/S issue.

They do care about having a huge number of aircraft to chose from, multiple scenarios with well over 2000 different ground targets in those scenarios, different payload packages for their aircraft with all sorts of additional weapons and most importantly, when something is posted it is already available, NOT some time in the distant future.

An Ideologue, OTOH, posts picture after picture of "perfect" models that will never see the light of day and brag about a dubious  expertise to an ever shrinking group of followers.

See the difference?

Relax and have some fun or adhere to a strict protocol and suffer within the constraints of a smothering ideology.

I know which one I prefer.

Brag? I think you mistake the word with dedication and strive for improvement. And where did you get the notice from that my group of followers is shrinking? EAW's following is definately shrinking but my group is fine, taken into account I have little aspirations.

I wouldn't worry much about my perfect models, I know who my followers are and they will get them.

Dizzy Dean, one of our great baseball players, once said "It ain't bragging if you can do it".

My contention is that since it's rare that one of your models ever sees the light of day, indeed you are bragging, not doing.

Yes, I've become VERY carefull in picking my friends and handing out my creations, I think the reasons for that are pretty obvious. Hope you don't mind me keeping control over my own work, it's all too easy for others to pretend that they were it's creators. Think this thread will be locked soon too, hope the moderators understand that I'm just defending my work. I'm done with this guy anyway.

No offense, but perhaps you paint with too broad a brush re your comment on what Players prefer.  There is a wide spectrum of Player tastes and preferences, and to say that Players care about one thing to the exclusion of others goes too far, I think.

As for myself, I am visually-oriented, and can usually see details in aircraft that some others might gloss over, or perhaps not detect at all.  It is a niggling bother--to me, at least-- when the depiction of an A/C contains visual errors.  The presence of such errors often causes me to question whether the Modder has done due diligence to other, unseen, aspects of the A/C, such as Flight Model, and so forth.

I know that some issues are not easily corrected, but that does not reduce the responsibility of the Modder to do his/her very best to "get it right".  I understand that others will have different preferences.

I prefer to not discuss your other remarks.

      Thx to Erik and Stratos a special EAWPRO club was erected where further devellopment of my work can take place without unnecessary interruptions. Anyone is welcome to read it's contents which remains uncensored, but discussions are limited to members only and admittance to the club is exclusively under my control. Ofcourse crticism about EAWPRO can still be posted in the General EAW forum and when possible will be taken to heart. I'm sorry that there is no other way to present my work but it will not hamper further devellopment in any way.
      You can find the club through the forum's main page or by selecting CLUBS in the top from any page in the CA forum or by clicking the picture below:

      8 hours to unravel it's R/S secrets and 8 more to tweak the model into a light fleet/escort cariier. From here the model can be turned into any carrier class or split up into a multipart model. As a single 3DZ it can be a moving interdiction target (not landable) as well as a static target in harbours or alongside the coast. This is just a start as the model will be turned into a 100% model and It's texture will be upgraded soon.

      This picture shows the R/S check of a beached carrier with a few additions already :) The model will be added to PTIV as the new EAWPRO exe has freed a slot for an extra ship.

      The Reichenberg was the first and last plane I created in 2010, but with some recently acquired knowledge I felt the model should benefit from it, hence II. The initial model had it's cockpit more integrated into the fuselage but pictures show it was more of a small cubicle on top of the body. The old version also only used 6 sides and now 10. It may be further improved someday but for now this is where it stands. Weapons wil be added later too.
      As usual a rock solid R/S, new skin, semi 3D pilot (as in the Ohka) and dashboard (not visible yet in this picture but it's already there).

      In line with the latest weapons loadout expansion, which adds some 7 or 8 new selectable weapons to EAWPRO the FritzX guided bomb was created. The bomb with an 800 KG warhead was used in anti shipping raids and carried by the JU 88 amongst others. The plan is to use every available weapon slot and hopefully make em work too. The FritzX for now is a selfpropelled weapon with a high drop ratio since human control of guided missiles or bombs is not yet programmed in EAW, so it'll have to do for now.

      Using a very old texture design which used to be UHR (= 512 x 256) redesigned for standard texture size 256 x 256 in 8 bit. 3D model may still change as it was selected from my base library of models. Another one may be more impressive, you never know.
