Re Nimitz ...........................

Recommended Posts

G'day George,The Avisim server wouldn't allow me to upload any pics in my reply to your post so I've started a new thread.Thanks for the update re Nimitz. I have been looking for this for a while and had finally convinced myself that it was only in the original Fly! :-) Thankfully I was wrong.A new addition for the carrier.Cheers,Roger

I love that plane Roger :9 Just finished a "FIX" for the ship.http://www.wrexhamspace.org/avsim/fs007.jpg Though I have to add, I cant land on it! Brakes full on, I just fall of the other end :-badteeth Went through 10 Cessnas...

G'day Steve,Great work with the carrier! Looks better than the original :-)Just remove the Teflon coating off the deck :-lolORfit arrester wires.The Gannet is only a static model. Just adds a bit of colour to the drab liveries of the default aircraft on the carrier.Cheers,Roger

Hi Roger,thanks you love the AircraftCarrier (ACC), too. Steve made one big step into the right direction, we can try some landings and starts (without steam cat). Is difficult, as we have no optical landing help as from a real world ACC.Do make it more realistic, we can select some wind to help us. It is not unrealistic as the carrier moves against the wind.I think 30 knots might be a good value (???), virtual ACC speed + windspeed. Then also a Cessna with bad brakes might be able to stop on the flight-deck.We could also make the ACC to a moving object as my friend Cord did for me with some of Bibers ships several times. BUT!!! I noticed that objects when they are converted to MOVING objects aren't hardened anymore. What a pity?Might be there is a solution for that over the time, ROTW???And I like your Gannet very much, I saw one in a local museum as the German navy used them in the past. When you let us download your static model I will ask Steve to make a German livery for it.And Roger, let your aircraft FLY! at last. Take the time, at last you'll be satisfied. There is much help in this forum. I am struggling for nearly a year with my Landsat7 program for FLY! though there are other methods available now. People might thing I am a fool. But if something found your interest, nothing is better than doing it yourself.And nobody thinks your first aircraft should have ROTW or F2FDesign quality - just do it for yourself and we all have the profit, at last.RegardsGeorg HeliFLYer EDDW

Hi Steve,can't wait until this evening. But my wife is very satisfied about the time as I NOW have to do some REAL work in the house after posting so much.But one question left - isn't it a new model which we can place with the FLY! editor anywhere?RegardsGeorg

Hi Georg :-wave Check your email!Sadly, this fix is only " a fix" as, you have to add the new deck yourself, or myself in different areas people want the new Nimitz at.There is no way to attach this to the current model that I know of without the original makers files. I have sent you the test for the Nimitz with Hard Deck and a few extras on it ;-) If anyone wants the Nimitz in an area they like to Fly I will gladly do it for them. As some who are not familiar with the editor may find it hard to apply correctly. My best bet is to make a few different pods were the Nimitz could be. I have placed the first one at KSFO like you did :-) Its simple installation of one pod in the scenery/shared folder.PS. I will be uploading a Nimitz fix and extra models pack for those who can do it themselves. Im making more crew for the Deck :-) All the best, Steve.My Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orgF2FDesign Websitehttp://www.f2fdesign.com/ My Fileshttp://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+View http://www.wrexhamspace.org/sig.jpg

G'day Steve,< where else would you like to see the Nimitz 3 ? > Mine's in the middle of Botany Bay just off the end of 34L YSSY, but I plan to move it to Sydney Harbour. We have had a visit from the "big E" in Sydney Harbour so I'm on safe grounds placing the Nimitz there.Botany Bay has an average depth of only 9 ft !! Great for flathead but lousy for manouvering a ship the size of a carrier :-)Cheers,Roger

Hi.By coinsidence I made a "test carrier" last year.It don't look as great as the other one,but it's solid as a rock.No sink through. But hard to land on if you'r not using a copter :) Not sure if I will continue developing it though.To busy with the S61,and other "projects".Take care.Janhttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannerjh.jpg

Hi Jan,for the sake I am so impertinent to ask you for either uploading it as a n early BETA or giving the files free for Steve or other to put on some aircraft and other details. Your ACC looks really usable and as you can read there are at least a few people (Roger, Steve, Me) very interested in that stuff.It could solve all problems we have now (no free placing/ only a runway hardened, not the whole flightdeck/no sources available for further development).I really beg you for that because you have no time now to develop and it could be the basis for different aircraft carriers!Thanks a lot in advanceGeorg HeliFLYer EDDW

Hi Georg.The carrier was made with Abacus FSDS.Not sure if anyone can use the files without having that program.The carrier is so ugly I can't upload it,even as an Alpha.But I can send it to you by mail,and then you can do whatever you like with it.Is that OK?So longJanhttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannerjh.jpg

Jan,you are great and understating... as ever! I enjoy your Ldw hospital nearly every day. Thank you very much for this noble act. Now back to the helo-front. :-beerchugAnd as I can do with it, whatever I like I will mail it to Steve, Roger and other people interested, just drop me a mail or post here! I check the forum regularly.And is there anyone out there who knows Abacus FSDS or what to do with the files so that they can used for further development?Thank you once againRegardsGeorg HeliFLYer EDDW

Jan, you underestimate your wonderful talent. To me it looks fantastic. Look at the Steves models pod if you want to see ugly ships :-lol Your right on your files though, I only use 3ds max, I do have FSDS but cannot get my head around it. So sadly I wouldnt be able to add anything. But honestly you are a very good modeller.. dont pull yourself down. Take a look at some default FS9 models close up.... shame on them :9 SteveMy Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orgF2FDesign Websitehttp://www.f2fdesign.com/ My Fileshttp://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+View http://www.wrexhamspace.org/sig.jpg

G'day George,I will NEVER, NEVER buy or attempt to buy online again. Full stop; period. A couple of months ago I went to an online shop ( one of Avsims advertisers I might add ) and placed an order for the FSDS modeling software. I would have used the Aussie branch of the company but they didn't have the product. The American branch did have the product ( at least it was listed as available ) so I went ahead and gave all the credit card details etc and ordered a copy. Within 24 hours I received an email with order referrence number and an email address to contact if I had problems. I anxiously waited the two weeks waiting for my new software but nothing arrived so I emailed back quoting the order referrence number asking if there were any problems. Waited another week and still no software and no response to the email I sent. I decided to ring the Aussie branch of this company and explained my predicament. They took all my particulars. They were mystified as to what the problem was and said that they would contact the American branch on my behalf and see what the problem was. Well that was over a month ago and still I have no response from either the Aussie or American branch.I just give up. This is totally unacceptable to me. The upside is that my Visa hasn't been debited. I no longer want the product so I've given up chasing but the experience has turned me off online purchasing for good.I just don't appreciate giving out my personal Visa details for the fun of it.Cheers,Roger

Hi Roger,interesting story, the problem might be that a company far away from you established in another country is envolved. Lucky they didn't take your money too, bad for me they didn't send the software, otherwise we could count on you. ;)But you can use Jan's carrier without improving anything. Just drop me an eMail so that I reply with that file added, only 300 kB big, small enough even if you have a dial-up connection.RegardsGeorg HeliFLYer EDDW

Georg and Roger... And JanI have the Software, FSDS. Sadly its totaly different from the software I use.I just have that much on my plate now, Liverpool Airport, Steves Models V2, Autogen Scenery and I have a few private bits of Fly2 work to do. So sadly I dont want to start more work for myself... Toooooo much learning to do :-eek Sorry I cant go any further with this, but If Jan allows this to be uploaded, I will add people to be able to be used on deck. They have been made and are ready :-) SteveMy Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orgF2FDesign Websitehttp://www.f2fdesign.com/ My Fileshttp://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+View http://www.wrexhamspace.org/sig.jpg

Hi Steve,I think Jan did not want his carrier to be uploaded as it does not fit his very high quality stardards. But he wrote ".. do with it what you want". That means, if anyone improves it, gives credit to Jan like "idea and basic work by Jan M Herigstad, improvements by ..." this should be possible to upload under the name of the follower.Jan has his credit and the follower is the aim of all that shame over him (just joking, you all know how my real opinion about this wonderful object is, contrary to the creator :-) ).This could be the begin of a long and wonderful story ...Thanks to all giving new power to FLY!RegardsGeorg CessnaOnACCLander KSFO, EDXH

Hi Georg and Steve.Not sure if I want any credit ;)If anyone want to modify it,they need the original textures,or even better,make new one's.And it's too big,it need some scaling.It's too easy for you guys to land.And Georg,here is a screenshot from one helo addict to another.The helo is a bit bigger than what you are used to,but you'r gona love it some day.Take care.Janhttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannerjh.jpg

Hi Jan,than kyou for the reply!First:If it is too complicated to improve, doesn't matter, I have much (!) fun with your carrier and it is good enough for me as you might have noticed , many posts from me here at the AVSIM forum.But there is absolutely no interest at a FLY! carrier, I sent the files only to Steve and another German FLY!er. So I don't think we should get gray hairs about polishing it up, it is not worth the time and energy. For me its just pure fun for and rather childisch satisfaction when having mastered a landing in a way a can accept. (By the way, the scale is pretty good for amateur fixed wing pilots like me :-) ).Second:I thought you were working at a new project. The Sikorsky S61N is REALLY a big helicopter, I can only say that by imagination because I never saw one in real life. The screenshot demonstrates your (F2FD?) thoroughly work like with the Dauphin :-) . This is worth waiting for a long time and (as I told you already when you made the Dauphin) it is like Christmas for a helo-addict!Thank you (and all F2FD people) for the work and time you put into that project.See youGeorg

G'day Alex,> Do you believe in Santa? >:-lol I found out the truth about Santa when I was about 9 or 10. My elder sisters burst my bubble. I'm now 61 so you're just a wee bit late. :-) I have never forgiven them. :-lolCheers Alex,Roger
