    Hey Stuart,
    Any chance we could convince you to build some British aircraft carriers that are true to length and width to CFS2 aircraft?

    It has always seemed to me that our carriers are too narrow and too short compared to reality of seeing fighters take off from half to 1/3 of the carrier deck in length. They also seem way to low in the water. Carriers flight decks sit extremely high out of the water.

    Here in CFS2 land, we have to mod the ship.cfg just to get planes to use the entire length of the flight deck just to get airborne.
    THAT is not realistic.

    I have had to use stock USS Enterprise and USS Essex as BPF carriers and then rename them to BPF carriers.
    None of the VN_HMS carriers are long enough to get a Corsair off the deck without jacking up the WEP in the air file AND modifying the ship.cfg.

    I know that RN aircraft have a stall speed down in the double digits while US planes are in the triple digit stall speeds.
    That helps, EXCEPT in US built Corsairs and Hellcats in the BPF.

    And More Boats Again!

    Wow! These are really super. I've already got them in the water. Now I can stop substituting US Pacific boats and use the real thing instead. Great work Stuart.

    CFS2 Gmax Models RN Inter-war Destroyers.zip


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Ships Add-Ons

    Description: CFS2 Gmax Models Royal Navy Inter-war Destroyers.

    There are ten separate zip files in this package.

    They are basically the same, in terms of basic design, DP files etc. differing only in armament and some small changes to deck layouts.

    Gmax files are included.

    Cheers,

    Ship DPs.

    Hey Stuart,

    I hope to have my comp fixed real soon. then I can get back to work on CFS2. If you build anymore ships I'd be willing to work on the DPs and CFG files.

    I have checked the stock USS Enterprise and it is close real world size at the flight deck. The info I found says the flight deck is 802 feet long and 109.5 feet wide. When I port the stock MS model back into gMax the size is 798 feet long and 113.5 feet wide.

    The prob with CFS2 is that none of the stock player aircraft but for the P-38 give more lift when you lower the flaps. If the aircraft had the right amout of lift with flaps down the AI would crash when trying to land.

    They could have used you back in the day considering how fast you're laying down these hulls!

    Great work - please, please keep it up.

    Great stuff Stuart! For those with a desire to read about a "VW" in WW2, pick up "A Hard Fought Ship" about the HMS Venomous.

    Stuart277,

    Thank you! The HMS Dido is actually one of the ships used by the British in the waters surrounding Crete! This will be most useful!

    Thanks

    Hi all,

    I would like to thank you for your nice comments.

    It is quite fun doing the ships.

    It is not very difficult, once you get the hang of GMax.

    For comments regarding 'output', I have made 'templates' of a few weapons and a couple of hulls. So, effectively the hulls of the Cruisers are just enlarged versons of the destroyer hulls and this really speeds up the process, cut and paste, so to speak.

    My texturing is only OK, not Colin or Uncltgt quality, but is passable.

    Most of the 'variety' of ships within each class only differ in armament, so too avoid the 100 ship problem, pick one you like.

    Same with the modelling, it ain't Usio, but they are only targets (except for the carriers).

    No DP file skills yet, but I might (only might) get into those.

    I do intend to have a go at a lot of ships over the next year or so, there are a lot of Italian, French and Dutch ships 'missing' as well as few IJN and US ships.

    Cheers,

    Stuart
