This should be the official WW II Airforce and Navy mod for ARMA 3. All other WW II  teams should simply send what they've got so far torwards you and support you. 

 

big thx and keep it up

Thanks - this is surely meant as a compliment but I am quite certain they would disagree and like to hold on to their stuff and I want to hold on to mine : )

Modders and players often have a very different view on things. At least for me it's the building that is the fun and I am not so much interested in the results. After all there is nothing to win really-

There is also no reason why there shouldn't be 20 different versions of the same thing from my point of view.

 

That being said I am open to support other mods with script stuff or some assets (flak/searchlights/damage scripts etc)

Ju 52, maybe someday. It's on my personal list but that does not mean much. Best to check my sketchfab page to see what may happen.

Thanks for you answer! ok I do 😉

Hey DSabre,

 

Love the planes and all the new ones especially the Stuka with the cannon pods but the recoil when you shoot them is too strong. Any way you could tone it down a bit so it makes it easier to use them?

 

thanks again!

Forgot to update this thread:

last actions were the release of v 3.5.1.  (7 July)

- which added surface launchable torpedos and sort of working depth charges (both mods of TeTeTs genius torpedo).

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

 

 

Currently working on:

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Generic Freighter (originally for my WWI mod)

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Desert Camos

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

finally continued work on the He 162

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Ju 88A, added glass nose and belly gunner

Navy Update incoming:

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true   ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Thanks to TeTs awesome aerial torpedo I managed to add depth charges, mines and surface to surface torpedos.

(I tested the vanilla naval mines but did not like them so much, or something didn't work. Can't remember)

Added commander turret to ships.

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true   ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Finally figured out how to map the gun elevation to page up/down while keeping the view locked to the horizon.

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true   ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

Battlecruiser update: medium artillery now functional, uv map updates for battlecruiser, battleship and torpedo boat,

 

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true  ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

submarine crew can now turn in, new axis speedboat,

Got some questions/requests/comments

 

1. Nice work
2. Hope to see the new american bombers interior

3. Got issue with submarine i can dive but i can't surface

4. Why have you change the model of the b25 for the turret on the rear back and not with the turret on the front back ? that leave a weird texture hole on it ? can you make multiple variant of b-25 ?

5. B29 Planned ?

6. They're is no way to know exactly aim correctly with ship ?

1. Thank you

2. Maybe I lost track - What new bomber? Currently it is still more likely that I remove interiors than add any. Highest probability for a new interior is on Ju 88, Tu SB or M6a.

3. Have you mapped your keys correctly? Are you locked to periscope depth? Are you on driver seat?

The fastest way to dive is to sit on commander seat and command periscope depth.

Diving manually will take a few seconds from driver seat. To surface you have to sit on driver seat and make sure you are not locked to periscope depth.

4. That was the plan, I may someday.

5. No.

6. No and that is completely intended. Same discussion as with bomb sights on bombers... just no. Everything is still waaay to accurate for my taste.

What I will do is add this gunsight to turrets. That shows the guns elevation which will make aiming a little easier.

Ships are fun. I have decided to make a few more.

The next project that's going to be in the mod soon:

 

WWI Submarine Chaser, my 2nd attempt at shipx physX after the E-boat.

Depth Charges are a modification of TeTeTs awesome torpedo script.

 

8MS9rwH.pngB8963E7FC77E60EF25D25BB7475B918D22F7AA5F 

First version                                                                            Ingame

 

 

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true   ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true   ?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

After adding a few details and the rigging

Very nice looking little ship! I was hoping for a few smaller ships  🙂

Torpedo update in progress:

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

I managed to add a pitch control to TeTeTs script (by forcing a rotation on the torpedo if the pitch gets out of line).

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

better visibility of wake (simply had to switch the vehicle simulations to shipX).

These two simple additions help a lot in spotting the torpedo and making it look a bit nicer.

 

?imw=1024&imh=576&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=true

better chance of evading?

 

Surface and Aerial torpedos now have different speed and runtime.

I am also experimenting with submarine launched torpedos (while submerged). To balance the latter I may reduce range and speed.

3.6.4.1

- added elevation info to gunsights of naval guns (which now elevate with page up and page down)
- tweaks to Ju88 and P61
- added shadowlods for the smaller boats (thx for suggestion Eaglke)

Ola,

If you don't mind me asking:

 

1. Do you have any plans on updating/improving the machine gun sound effects for the planes? 

 

2. Do you have any plans on giving the search lights some light rays? (I don't know if it's possible, but having search lights without the ominous light rays sort of make them pointless, i love seeing the rays coming out from the search lights in ww2 movies or video games) 

 

3. Any plans on updating the uniforms for the crews? (Though there are sub mods for it, i am interested as to how you would interpret their look, especially the navy ones. If you have the time to design them, that is)

 

4. Any plans on having variants for the Flak guns? 

 

Thanks a bunch!

Keep up the AMAZING work. To be honest, i've been checking up on this mod ever since it came out, and i thought at first "ah, you're just one of those casual modders who makes mods just for the hell of it, and then just leave them and never do an update. Too bad". But then you continued your work and made it into something awesome. Good luck comrade. I hope to see you improve your mod even more and still have fun while doing it. 👍

What could be possible is attaching a transparent object to the searchlight. It would probably look quite silly but I may try someday.

The current uniforms in the mod are vanilla A3 with some different color. Uniforms is not my thing. Would take months to learn and years to master.

I like the sound effects. Same applies to learning and mastering that topic as well. Free sound effects don't grow on trees.

You and everyone else are free and invited to make custom mods modifying my mods to change whatever you feel like as well.

 

Glad to hear. Thanks for the feedback.

Well tbh the fun with a popular topic as WW2 is very much so so. If there was a way to disable steam comments section I would do it : )

This is an amazing mod especially with the ships you have done. Love the whole WW2 theme, question: What is the best persistent Server Mission to use for your mod? I would think Liberation or Antistasi but not sure if anyone has done one that's current with your mod? 

 

Well Done!

By selecting them. Same as any other aircraft. If it does not work disable sound mods. They are known to break stuff
