    We are aware of planes sinking into the carrier and is being investigated .
  4. Hi all, I am Saul. I saw what Topas has done with his templete and wanted to follow the example and create NATO and eventually OPFOR and Independant base templates for all the textures available in the Alpha thus far. Each template consists of the base original diffuse (color or .co) texture for reference, a normal map (.nohq) as well as a height map, ambient occlusion, and cavity map. All the things any texture artist will need to create a new reskin of any existing Arma 3 character. Really all you will need to do is add your own camo, some base color, throw in some dirt and your good to go. Left is default arma3, middle is da pinky, and right is a simple retexture. Current Package contains various .psd files. Each template has two groups for Normal and Diffuse maps with a few layers in diffuse group for the base, height, AO, Cavity and an empty layer. Also color coded so you don't get mixed up which group you are working in.

    1) Is the 'throttle % indicator' in the UI ever coming to helicopters? Not likely. 3) Is there a chance that the wheelbrakes for planes will be separated from the 'decrease throttle' input just like they were for helicopters in AFM? Yes, they already have been. We have dedicated key for wheel/air brake, throttle is separate with new system 4) Was the keybinding for collision lights left out intentionally or was this an oversight? Can't comment/don't have such information. 5) Is there a chance that the 'open/close ramp' action might also be added as a keybinding? Can't comment/don't have such information. 6) Is there a chance of control profiles being implemented, so that you can save and load your keybindings? Most likely no but it's not a bad idea :D

  8. Version 0.1 by John_Spartan and Saul INTRODUCTION The F/A-18X Black Wasp is a twin-engine carrier-based multi-role fighter aircraft variant based on the Boing F/A-18E Advanced Super Hornet. The aircraft features many advanced technologies and systems including semi- stealth capability, conformal fuel tanks, and enclosed weapons pods. PROLOGUE This project started as an upgrade to our previous project the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet. We wanted to rebuild the aircraft from our ported Arma 2 version and give it a look befitting of Arma 3. John and I joined in on the Make Arma not War contest to test what we can do and decided that we should push the limits even more with the F/A-18's and thus came the F/A-18X Black Wasp. We have many great ideas and features planned for this aircraft and much to do. No matter the outcome we will deliver the best addon that we can deliver to the community. FEATURES - Upgraded model based on the Boeing F/A-18E Advanced Super Hornet - New first person cockpit - Improved flight model - New animations for many items to include landing gear and canopy - Upgraded Service Menu including Low and High profile configurations - 150+ possible configurations including the new EWP and GBU-39D Small Diameter Bomb - New Bomb, the GBU-39D Small Diameter Bomb or SDB - Master Modes for Navigation, Air to Air, Air to Ground and Dogfighting (WIP) - Upgraded EGI (Embedded GPS/ INS) system for GPS guided ordinance FUTURE PLANS - Service Menu Paint Scheme upgrades using Arma 3 VAS - Ordinance Menu upgrades using Arma 3 VAS - Independant missile box and upgrades to increase authenticity of weapon systems - Upgraded HUD - Modular semi- stealth capability SIDE PROJECT - U.S.S.

  9. NATO Replacement Pack- More Multicam! Hey all. Here is my iteration of multicam for the NATO characters for Arma3. The big emphasis for me was to darken the uniforms and replace much of the sage/ ranger green pouches and gear with multicam as well. The default uniforms annoy the dickens out of me as they are very bright and do not blend into the surrounding natural environments. Special thanks go to Alex Vestin for his amazing multicam texture (Linky). I used his multicam with some tweaks, replaced much of the color information, darkened everything up, and also added in details to parts like the helmet camera and MS2000 for examples. Pack contains just the NATO character_f.pbo and a readme for instructions on how to replace the original texture. You can download here: Download Enjoy!!! Edit: Download link updated with new pbo replacement pack, special thanks goes to Brainbug for the help.

    Ya, we aren't dead. Just REALLY REALLY REALLY busy. ;)

    @All - Currently John and I are still undecided one which units may be protrayed. Our current project is taking up a lot of our time and unfortunately the F18X is suffering because of this. This does not mean that work has stopped, just slowed. We will keep you all up to date as things progress. @devil - As of the most recent update (0.99) I have not been able to reproduce the spawning issue on a hosted server via scripts or Zeus. John and I will do another test run to varify our findings but it is entirely possible that another mod or script that you or your community is using is conflicting with the F18X spawn.

  13. John and I would also like to congratulate our fellow winners in the competition, to the finalists as well as our fellow competitors for all of the great addons and missions. Together we have raised the bar for the mod community of Arma and have set the examples of what to work up to. I see a bright future of the mod community so lets keep’em coming.

    First off John and I would like to say thank you all for the wonderful support. For over two years now John and I have worked tirelessly to bring the best quality aircraft mods that we can make. We know however that without the community we would not be where we are today. John and I would also like to congratulate our fellow winners in the competition, to the finalists as well as our fellow competitors for all of the great addons and missions. Together we have raised the bar for the mod community of Arma and have set the examples of what to work up to. I see a bright future of the mod community so lets keep’em coming. With all that said, thank you all again for the wonderful support and good hunting gents.
  15. F/a-18x black wasp

    @Rlex - pretty sure that is a mission maker issue and not the mods.
  16. F/a-18x black wasp

    Keep'em coming :D
  17. F/a-18x black wasp

    @Dragon - The odds of a two seater variant of the Black Wasp is extremely low mostly due to our current projects (John and I haven't even reached our goals with the F18X as is) and also due the wasp would require extensive remodeling, texturing, and scripting. It's not to say it may never happen but as things stand right now with John and myself we have no plans for a two seater. @All - Here is a small preview of what is to come with future update 1.0 of the Black Wasp. We are currently in the process of upgrading most of the textures for the Wasp with (as you can see in the image) the introduction of a modern U.S. Navy color scheme. Unfortunately I can't say when update 1.0 will be released as 1.0 will be a big update but we are setting a goal of early summer at the earliest. One thing though I would love to ask from the community is this. What squadrons do you think should be represented in a 2035 U.S. Navy? Post your answers below and we will take the best ones (probably no more then 3 or 4) and will add them to the mod.

    @Eran - Read the first post :)
  19. F/a-18x black wasp

    @All - An update is coming which will fix most if not all errors with the black wasp and 1.38. Please be patient, this is not the only thing we are working on.

    @Sjaba = JDAM Process 1] Open GPS/INS via action menu/ or keybind 2] Click SET TARGET and then click on map to mark your target location 3] Fly towards target area and press your lock target key (Tab, T, R or whatever you set it to). You should have a square box on the target, if you have this you can release a bomb depending on altitude/ airspeed or you can wait for the diamond lock to get ideal conditions.
  21. F/a-18x black wasp

    @All - Yes there is a TGP in the works, all in due time.
  22. F/a-18x black wasp

    @Devil = We will look into this, probably just a small bug. Can you elaborate on this though? Though it is respawning in the wrong direction, is it random? Is it a 180? etc, etc. @All = The choice for using the custom user actions was that the Master modes system will also be using custom user actions and these keys can be bound to whatever the player is comfortable with. It is a slight inconvenience but who doesn't like to change things up every now and again :D.
