(re)birth of a carrier

Recommended Posts

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.

How "Configurable"--by you, not a user-- will this be?  For instance, most all WW II carriers were not of modern slant-deck configuration.  Also, toward the end of WW II, Fleet carriers had LOADS of AA armament installed, making them a very tough target to attack, at least if the pilot wanted to survive.  Presumably such AA armament would come into play once an enemy (or unlucky friendly) aircraft came into range.

What are the structures on the deck?  Test device of some sort?

I wonder if this vessel will be "scalable" in that the basic model can be used (with some minor changes) as an escort carrier, light carrier, and/or full-sized Fleet carrier?  

Looking forward to your creations, as always.

Update! Slanted lines were replaced with a straight line, 2 canon positions with 4 canons and radar tower  were added. Users have no control over 3D models unless they learn how to create them. All intermediate stages in the build were saved so other models can easily be derived from them .One thing is certain these new models will not suffer from any R/S anomalies like some other carriers do.

Some other carriers actually look like WW2 carriers.

Pretty condscending and hostile remark but I have those carriers too, they came from Fleet Defender, but I don't know what this is supposed to represent. If it's a WWII carrier then it needs a lot of fixing, some antenae and canons may also be an improvement:

Anyway, what I have can be turned into any shape as the pictures show, and I'm not finished by a long way but it's getting there:

I don't think that comment was necessary, particularly in view of a work in progress.  VBH has access to all the relevant pix of various WW Ii carriers, and I am sure his final product(s) will differ considerably from these initial pix.

"One thing is certain these new models will not suffer from any R/S anomalies like some other carriers do."

Leave off the "like some other carriers do" comment and then it would be a true statement with no condescension.

vs

"Some other carriers actually look like WW2 carriers."

This statement did not say that the posted carrier looked bad, only that it didn't look like a WWII carrier. Which, at this point it doesn't.

I hope the moderator can see the difference.

It is this sort of bickering that causes me, and certainly others, to move away from any sort of EAW-based game, and onto other, newer, platforms, where the modders do not try to crucify one another.

You people are poisoning your own well.

That trick was used on me before in SimHQ and it's intentions seems clear enough to me. In Rotton's own words "some constructive criticismcan should be tolerated", so let's just carrier on. Debating which carrier looks like a WWII carrier or not is futile, especially within EAW's limitations. If someone thinks there's something wrong then I'm willing to change it, that is when I agree ofcourse. As I said it can be turned into ANY shape. Added some more detail, :)

My original post was made because VBH chose to post a snide comment re- "other carriers", which was completely unnecessary.
As usual he fired the first shot that provoked a response. Had he not made that choice I would have not posted my comment.

At the time of my post his pictures showed carriers with angled flight decks, so my comment was accurate.
When I visited the Yorktown it had an angled flight deck, but that was added in 1960
That may well change, all for the better :smile:

Well it looks solid to me the quad guns are a nice touch anything you modders publish are welcome But We could do without the sniping..I fly things from both camps and enjoy them for their own charms

      Told ya it can be any shape. This is what the 100% 3D models are all about. Call it a super tweak, but one that's really working. It's about fixing other 3D models which have R/S issues, which is about 99% of what's out there. You have to take my word for it that it's 100 working and when finished I'll proof it too. But I guess those who're working with 3D models don't really need that proof, right?

      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).

      Derived from my Reichenberg and still carrying some of it's details but with a fully working Rendering Sequence. There is a pilot inside too but I couldn't use the Reichenberg's tranparency file but he's in there. The skin is largely from the Reichenberg with a white overlay and all colors removed from the plane and a quick Nippon dot replacing the German insignia. Later a proper skin with proper shading will be added but first the model needs to be tweaked so all V1 details are properly adapted to get the model as it should be. Notice that the model has 8 sides, like my Reichenberg, giving it a rounder shape then the stock V1. Couldn't squeeze more out of it due to the model's small size which limits the circumference of a circle polygon. However large planes can use this technique too and may be able to use 10 or 12 sides.

      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.
