- update of P-51 exterior and interior

- update of Ju 88

 

Last week work started on the Hawker Hurricane and De Havilland DH.98 Mosquito models (lets see how far I get).

 

 

 

My Secret Weapons mod got too large and is no longer fun to work on.

I have decided to start a new project, clear some clutter and focus on a smaller selection of aircraft (=my own models).

 


Right now I plan to update/include the following:

 

P-51 B, P-51 C, P-51 D,

Hawker Hurricane,

 

Bf 109 D, E, F, G, K,

Fw 190 A,

Ju 88 A,

Ju 86,

 

Yak-3 (75%),

 

Spitfire Mk XIV (65%),

Spitfire Mk I (65%),

DH. 98 (35%),

B-26 (15%),

F4U (0%),

SBD Dauntless (0%),

A6M Zero (0%),

Update: Hawker Hurricane,


1A5F5267B6697FA533D55092028BBEBB2F31FC89  4F6FE3B23E5ADDCF8EBBB1B74C9AFF227FFBF0EF  C010C0095396C6AD6A6EB012A28C20ED35AE324B

first flight                                                  basic uv map/texture                            added some decals

 

worked better than expected.

 

now comes the boring stuff

- cut out and animate control surfaces and gear

- add an interior : (

Hi @DSabre will you be making a B-25 Attack Bomber by any chance? 

 

You may want to read his signature, and look for the red colored text. Thanks for your attention.

 

Cheers,

He probably had signatures disabled. I may have to add it to every post . D

The mod is already awesome, loving the smoke trails on the rounds, similarly with the Naval Legends mod. It looks aesthetically satisfying like it does in games such as War Thunder or WoWS. Keep up your awesome work as always!

Working on my own model of a Bf 109 F. Surprise, it looks just like the other one since I use the same texture and normal map.  

Bf 109 E - early stage (WIP) and Spitfire Mk XIV / XVIII (WIP).

P-51 B reboot and Fw 190 A reboot

(mesh update, new two sided UV layout, normal map updated)

Awesome work Sabre !!  ,  the details on the models just get better and better. Great job thank you for your efforts.

 

Will we see any Japanese "Zero" getting a similar treatment ?

There is a list of what I am working on and what is planned for this addon in the second post. It may change daily. No A6M zero for now. Maybe someday, maybe not.

Hey DSabre are you going to add the Jericho Siren to the Stuka, that would seriously add a bit of immersion and detail to what that plane was known for.

I have the sound on my website if you want to check it out Jericho Siren

Thanks for the offer but have no plans for it. This mod does not contain a Ju87. My other mod that does have one is not being worked on anymore.

The Ju87 there is intended to be used as Kanonenvogel (cannonbird) and thus does not have the sirens. I think IFA had plans to add a siren to theirs or maybe they did already.

And why are you not working on Secret Weapons anymore? Sorry if its been asked already,

dont recall seeing your answer from what i've read so far.

 

Wouldn't it be easier to update already built, aircraft then

to rebuild one from scratch or port, or is there something wrong with the secret weapons planes/ships?

Ya they have the option in there for it in the editor, but the siren needs work.

Simply was no fun anymore. Technically it had some issues as I never intended for it to become so large, class-names had no proper system, got lost in useless details (too many different armaments).

That made changes or adding things a nuisance. It got too popular as well.

 

Since my motivation for modding is fun it was time to move on.

That's exactly what I am doing. I took some of my aircraft from Secret Weapons and gave them an update, some are new (Hurricane, Bf 109). All aircraft are my own.

I had planned to continue with the Hurricane and the Mk XIV but ended up with this instead.

Fuselage, canopy and wings are completely new, the rest is copy/paste from the F version.

Thank you. There is a list in 2nd post of what is currently planned. Had the plan to make my own B-17. May or may not happen.

Thanks guys.

Spitfire update: When I started this a long time ago I never got past the initial shape.

The experience gained on the Hurricane and the 109s helped to revive this.

Originally intended to make a Mk XVIII - but let's call it Mk XIV so it fits into the mod better.

Hurricane interior is not making much progress.

Got stuck with the Spitfires interior and canopy as well.

Why not start a new project...

 

*A few hours later* Tried working on the DH.98 again. It may work after all.

The better your mesh is in the beginning the less work you have later on.

Sometimes hard to get past that first step. Think I got past it for the Mossie finally.

Further refinements on the P-51 (normal map, texture, smdi).

*A few days later* Another plane that may find its way into the mod
