Any luck with the scripts?  quite many I guess....?

Hey John, thanks for your interest! We are using Firewills ejector seat. As for scripting, its eh. We started EW script but haven't worked on it in awhile as we have been concentrating on the air frame itself. We made new low poly gear,  animations for wing folding, landing gear, and arresting bar, and have made a few textures. I am a complete rookie when it comes to modding this game and I am happy with the progress we have made so far as these have been things I have never done before. Granted my team did some of those things I listed above.

Notice the arresting bar, when the gear is added ill upload pictures of that with the wings folded.. and maybe just maybe a video. Gear and animations are done, they just need to be implemented.

Will it use Firewills pilots? They're excellent models

I think all jets spawn without this pilot, but you can change your gear when spawn

Doesn't make sense, The Growler wasn't made for that, it can defend itself in an emergency but that may never happen.

Not so much for the aircraft itself, i was thinking more along the line of this

 

- Ground troops notice an approaching attack helicopter, however they are running low on AA missiles, the Growler pilot would enable EW and jam the countermeasures for a period of time, giving ground units a chance to destroy the approaching helo.

Considering the dispensing of physical countermeasures like flares is completely unaffected by external signals, again, this makes no sense.

Of course, but some of the IRL benefits won't translate into arma (such as disabling radar to some extent) so surely you have to come up with your own interesting dynamics? It could also jam missile locks or remove the map temporarily, disable mines.even.

 

Give it some interesting benefits so you'd want to chose the Growler over a F16

Yes it will, a replacement script will spawn his pilots inside.

SEAD missions, jamming enemy radars and comm are enough to be interested in the addon, don't you think? Nimitz compatibility and great look can be added to it as well. It will be the first addon that can do such things in A3, if doable.

I like ideas that can bring interesting gameplay dynamic but within realistic environment in my case.

-Tail hook as been implemented and working

-Gear+animations have been implemented, working

-2 new textures have been made

-Fixed drop tanks texture issues

-Wings fold script added

-Compatible with Nimitz

 

 

A BIG issue for us is getting the prop on the ALQ-99 to spinwhen it gets in the air or at all, so if you have any ideas please let us know, anyway here are some new shots

Reg ALQ-99 spin - I would create animation in model.cfg with proper axis attached, like this example that was working with different source.

class CfgSkeletons
{
	class grow_Skeleton
	{
		isDiscrete=1;
		skeletonInherit="";
		skeletonBones[]=
		{
			"alqspin",""
		};
	};
};
class cfgModels
{
	class grow
	{
		skeletonName="grow_Skeleton";
		sectionsInherit="";
		sections[]=
		{
		
		};
		class Animations
		{					
			class grow_alqspin_slow
			{
				type = "rotation";
                                source = "speed"; 
				selection="alqspin";
				axis="axis_alqspin"; 
				memory = true; 
				sourceAddress = "loop";
				animPeriod=0;
				minValue=1.0;		//min value in meters per second 
				maxValue=2.0;          //max value in meters per second 
				angle0 = 0;
				angle1 = 4 * 3.1415;   //number of revolutions per second
				initPhase=0;
			};
			class grow_alqspin_med: grow_alqspin_slow
			{
				minValue=2.01;		
				maxValue=5.0;      
				angle0 = 0;
				angle1 = 8 * 3.1415;
			};
			class grow_alqspin_fast: grow_alqspin_slow
			{
				minValue=5.01;		
				maxValue=400.0;      
				angle0 = 0;
				angle1 = 16 * 3.1415;
			};
		};
	};
};

Hey everyone I have some updates!

The Growler is now:

-Fully compatible with Nimitz

-Fully compatible with KC-130

-High Frequency Jammer has been added

-Fuel tanks have been reworked (not in these screen shots)

-Flaps go down to 45 degress (looks extremely sexy in my opinion)

-Firewills SEAD has been added

-Aim 120s and AGM 88s are now functional

-Cockpit panels and buttons have been reworked

-A few more textures

-Firewills ECM has been added but NOT functioning for some reason. Is being worked on.

-Animations for refueling probe are basically complete. 

Anyway, still lots of work to do. I am hoping by this week we will have some sort of EW script ,animated ALQ-99s, and shadows, and then a simple loadout menu by next week. 

IMPORTANT: I am looking for more testers, so message me if you want to help out on testing.
