Thread: So, I just discoverd Carriers! CVT-16?

    Just a generic angled deck/cleared deck Essex class carrier would do the job for many!

    AND - others here have found a way to add a "deck park" of aircraft on the deck by making and adding models you can choose to enable/disable in the sim.cfg.

    Thanks Gary for your consideration.

    There are

    Line up your nosewheel with the exact start of the catapult track to engage the launch bar with the catapult

    Thank you so much for doing this, I've been looking for this ship for a few years now. My ground school instructor did his initial CQ on this boat, and I have wanted to see this in the sim for awhile now.

    Recos for best straight-deck WW2/Korea carriers to practice with my Corsair, Helldiver, and F9F?

    (That hopefully work in P3D 4.4.)

    Thanks!

    Have you tried searching right here (FSX ships > Essex)? Most of these are FSX native and work in P3D4. Great for WWII/Korea warbird carrier ops indeed!

    I got it working in P3Dv4.4, did a bunch of traps with it.

    Generic Essex

    No thereís no easy way to remove the buckeyes without recompiling the model. Let me see how long it would take to do a one off special for you with a slightly updated model.





    Hi Gary,


    Just checking back to see if it is possible to recompile the model to remove the trainers without too much time or trouble?

    Thanks and regards,

    Hello Gary,

    I just wanted to give you a quick shout out and THANK YOU for this awesome boat. I personally love the T-2s, and it's become my default USN CQ boat. It spans a few decades' worth of a training vessel, and as is, is perfect for my 70s-90s USN period. For 90s+ period USN CQ, I have Fernandez's T-45 configured Nimitz, so that's all nicely covered.

    Of course, if it could be repurposed into other Essex carriers, with other deck combinations, that's up to your kind graces.

    Just know that it has been, and remains, a very valuable freeware gift.

    Thanks very much!

    Hay Expat - Sorry I totally forgot that I said i'd remove the trainers. Tried a quick and dirty method tonight without much success as the T-2 canopy glass is tied to the bridge and Tilly crane glass so if I remove one I remove them all. I've got some free time on Thursday i'll rebuild the model and drop you a PM when it's ready

    Gary - that is GORGEOUS!

    Is that a whole new model? Whatever you have planned for that, Iíll happily enjoy. All your other USN and RN boats have a special place in my ďportĒ.

    Whole new model. To be clear itís not my mesh but subject to authors approval (and credit) iím dragging it kicking and screaming into fsx and plan to have all the SCB-125s with different deck configurations.

    Most excellent news! I’ll be keeping an eye out.

    Together with Dean’s RF-8 in the works, it’s shaping up to be a great 2019...

    Ready For USS Randolph

    I've got my Stoof ready as soon as you are. We will be able to get empty deck config too?

    Echoing all the other comments (Yay!.... Yay!.... Yay!... )

    Thanks so much!!

    (though I must say I also was happy with the T-2's on the deck )

    Is there any news for that model ? Looking for a good base for CV-12 Hornet. This one would be fantastic

    I have also recently discovered carriers and have been downloading a collection of them created by SWS, FlyingStations, RFN, Yanco and others. One thing I have been looking for is some information on the different carriers typical escorts and the formations they would take while at sea, does anybody know where I could find such information?
