G'day all, as it stands I've noticed a lack of love for one of my favourite birds the Kiowa Warrior of course. Due to this i decided to start a project replicating the aircraft for all to enjoy, as it stands its a heavily Work In Progress considering I am only one man and due to life commits (school) i haven't been able to put as much time into it as hoped. besides the fact this will be the place where all my progress is logged. The addon currently will only be focused around the last active duty variant of the 58, the OH 58D with future plans for the F and potentially the older birds A/C models. Currently i don't have much to show besides a cockpit. (forgive me i'm re hauling the exterior model expect progress soon!) Planned Features: Interactable cockpit with proper startup procedure. Proper weapon simulation (modes, range, etc) Shooting from the air frame All available weapons Dependant on aircraft Realistic sounds and rotor effects. Custom service menu to swap out Doors, weapons, paint schemes. Current WIP Pictures:
Hello, So, I announced this add-on a few years back and quickly had to postpone it due to some employment related reasons. The issues that led me to postpone it originally are no longer a factor, I have started the project back up and have been working tirelessly on these models for the past few months. Here are some pic links... 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 I apologize for the hasty, low quality pics, I will try to make future preview pics higher resolution. *Pics have been updated to high resolution renders I have fashioned the model to be a representation of the systems upgrades that Bell-Textron introduced in 2012. I do not think that a model currently exists of this helo that represents this particular version. Here is how the model(s) are progressing... Geometry is about 95% complete. UV unwrapping is about 80% complete. Texturing is about 10% complete, so far the textures are just an ambient occlusion layer and color layer, with more detail in the instrument panel textures. Integration into ArmA 3 has not started yet but will as soon as all modeling and texturing is completed. So far I only have plans to create several versions of the Delta variant but would love to do the newer Foxtrot variant as well, we will see what happens. I am doing all of the work in Blender and Photoshop. I will post updates regularly as I reach certain milestones. Thanks for your feedback! - ADuke
