    Tall Boy Bomb

    Hi Folks,

    Is there an authentic looking Tall Boy bomb available? I have one which drops vertically but looks nothing like the real thing and is invisible until released. If not, I can downsize the realistic Grand Slam bomb which is available.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    WEP.ZIP

    Take a side trip to Martin Wright's website and look for wep.zip:

    wep_5000lb_bomb

    This is an enlarged and stretched version of the CFS1 Bomb
    object allied to a DP that gives over twice the destruction
    of a 2000lb Bomb


    If this is the one you're already using, that's the only one out there.... So be creative !

    If you can get hold of Just Flight's Dambusters, it has a very nice Tallboy and Grand Slam in it. I know that's not freeware, but if you were tempted there's a couple on UK Ebay, one at $8 plus PP.

    Cheers

    Kdriver,

    There are these: http://simviation.com/1/browse-Aircraft-83-8

    Back when Netwings was around, I could have sworn there was a British bomb pack in the CFS2 utilities/other section. However, I'll be damned if I can remember where to find it now.

    Question Maybe This ?

    Nearest I could find in my archives was Brit_Bombs.zip, which included the following:

    "wep_bb"=RAF 2,000lb Blockbuster Bomb
    "wep_bb_ap"=RAF 2,000lb Anti-Personnel Bomb
    "wep_mc500"=RAF 500lb Bomb
    "wep_mc1000"=RAF 1,000lb Bomb

    I hate to ask a fellow Basement Dweller to start an unexpected project, but I wonder if Old_Wheat could whip something up with his magic GMax Weapons generator...?

    Kdriver,

    Here is the link to the "Grand slam" bomb: http://www.geocities.ws/kg200hangar/ruhrstahl.html

    Now, all we need is a "Tall boy" and a bouncing bomb.

    Just wait a little bit for the Tall Boy, I will post the bomb here first.

    Oh- and by the way, I need someone for the texture.

    Tall boy bomb, free to use, unpainted with free to useFSDS2.4 source file and texture template.
    As I said you are free to use the source file and upload your own modificationwithout permission.

    Maybe someone can do a better DP file. I made a test run and sunk a battle shipwith just one hit.

    Sorry for using the wrong aircraft in the picture, but Ihaven't a correct flyable aircraft on my current installation

    Sorry, I recognized that I upload the "grand slam bomb" as "tall boy bomb". I will correct this tomorrow

    Thanks very much for your help everyone - much appreciated!

    In the meantime I also played around with the Grand Slam and reduced its size by 20% which is near enough to the size of a Tall Boy. I don't know who was the original author of the weapon and if I have permission to upload any changes, but here's what it looks like.

    Is this what you're after

    Thanks Wolfi and OW. I've got a Lancaster that it just might fit into.

    Thanks to Worthless too. Nice of you to upload those Brit weapons.

    Wolfi, two of your Tallboys were needed to sink the Tirpitz - just as it was in 1944 - well done!

    Thankyou Oldwheat for the paint job.

    I also used your dp for the converted Grand Slam. I think that may be the most powerful explosion possible without changing things in the EFFECTS folder.
