    Dave,
    Good news. The self propelled guns imported into MCX without issue. I've exported them into 3ds models and will look at them in Gmax. They will need atleast 2 LODs and a destroyed model. should be easy enough.

    Allen,
    Do we have a texture for a blown up tank in either CFS1 or 2?

    Peeing in my pants dude, I think that you may be able to skip a destroyed model and just have the original on Fire ??
    Does that make it easier ?

    Lat Lon map discovery

    Hello All mud pushers, mission writers or any one interested.

    I found this great site that will give you lat and long anywhere in the world

    Ignore that the link is to the Mekong River, a project I am working on to create the river,
    in order to set up scenery for mission writers.

    Just drag the map to any where you want to see.

    CFS1 used a bomb crater and I do have the CFS2 vehicle destoyed model in gMax fourm. I'm attaching it.

    got it Allen, TY. That will save a step or two.

    They import into Gmax just fine. I've got one in and activate the textures. They look good for EOD models. They will need atleast 3 LODs. maybe 4 if we use them as vehicles.

    Allen,
    If you'd like I can send you a copy. You're better at the mapping then I am.

    DV,
    Its up to you. Without Allen's help I'd never have done what I have. So no problem on my end.

    Allen,
    I have an idea for the Zuni's. So if you do take it up, let me know.
    Alrighty, So then. Allen? Would you be able to create a zuni similar to the one in the picture?
    If you need real world dimensions...I can get them.

    Dosen't look to be too hard but I have been wrong. Wiki has the dimeter and length. The only thing I'm not sure about is if length is for with fins out or fins folded.

    EDIT:
    What Mk and warhead are you wanting? Each seem to have a deffent length. The Alpha F-8 seem to have Mk-71s with Mk-32 Anti Tank HE warheads.

    A Mk-24 would be great. General purpose warhead. This Link has some good info. Dimensions included for warhead length. Overall length would be 1.752 meters from my guesstimate.

    You would have creative license of course. :-)

    Thanks Allen,

    Allen,

    I can't get the damage model to export. I'm using the FS2002 SDK. Should I make it as a MDL or a bgl. right now I'm trying to make it a BGL.

    Why won't it export? One things is your nomal model and damaged/destryed model must have matching lods. So if your tank uses 100 50 and 25 you must have destryed models that use LOD 100 50 and 25.

    Every one.
    Here is the Zuni Mk-16 GP. Something looks off to me but I'm not sure why. Includes CFS2 ready and gMax model and related files.

    Whoa, that was fast. She looks really good!
    I try to never look a gift horse in the mouth but I see what you mean about "Something looks off". Would it be possible to do some, um-mm, how would one say, tweaking?

    The length looks perfect. But the diameter is large. Proportional maybe? I'm no gmax whiz so don't know how much work is involved.

    Here's a pic with zuni and aim-9 next to each other. The aim-9 also has a 5" diameter body, the same as the FFAR.
    Just to give an idea...

    Thanks, Dv

    Allen,

    Half your Dia. In Gmax dia is measured from the center. So if your dia is .025m and you used .025m. Then use .0125m and you will have the correct dia.

    So in this case the dia is 5" or 0.127m; make it 2.5" or 0.0635m. Other wise you end up with 10" across. I found that out while making my WWI bombs.


    As far as the damage model goes... They are both currently at LOD_100. The undamage model will export fine. I haven't been able to compile yet because of that.

    I don't know why they did it like that. It has bitten me more than once.

    Radus should be half of Dia. but it looks like a few people get this confused and post the info wrong and we follow that info and also get it wrong!

    Vietnam for CFS2 Beta Release

    Fellas, before we jump into the deep end, I had a thought. (Yes, it does happen to me infrequently.) I loaded up my Flight sim archive HDD and did a little checking. Has anyone else got the Alpha sim modern weapons pack? I do, and before we re-invent the wheel, could someone take a look and seee if any are Vietnam era?

    There's amother pack that has evn more, I just have to remember what it's named and I'll dig it out and check it too.

    P. S. Dratted spelling errors, must be the keyboard, couldn't be the cider.

    I believe that one is more from the 80's and 90's. Not that some of them couldn't be used.

    We would have to check the scale. Also many early weapon packs that were made with FSDS have their scale either too big or too small. Something to think about.

    Roger that BH. The other modern pack was done by Bononzie and Chris Coarse, looks like it has everything from about 1960 on. Useable... maybe.

    I'm slogging through the manuals, but they all seem to be pre-1967 with addenda through 1970, which means that the realistic, useful data ends about 1968. I'fe isolated the Mk 20 and Rockeye dispensers, so far, continuing from there.

    Beautiful Allen. The tube section looks perfect now. But, I just placed her on a pylon in the dp and guess what...the warhead faces to the rear. (heading)
    Sorry, I should have done this before.
    Instead it was just opened in mcx to have a look.
    Could you please flip 'er.

    Allen,
    Can you check that damage model. I may have to make a new one.

    I checked it before I sent it to you. It open just fine. I used it for many of the CFS1 Vehs as they didn't have damage models when I rebuild the whole CFS1 Library for CFS2.

    Not sure what happened to it.

    I ended up making a new one. Basicly took the botton of the M107 and made a damage texture. It looks ok.

    Here is the model in game.


    M107 175mm Self propelled gun (static).

    Not sure I like the barrel. Other then that it looks good.
