USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

The model is in 3ds format at 1.43 megs. Minus 40mm and 20mm guns as they can be added by coding them. Corsairs on deck with rockets would be tasty.http://battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/673/cve73a.jpg

Re: USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

After importing Dorsetshire I'm working on USS Gambier Bay. I have imported the hull, superstructure. Now we need some textures for the model. I created a texture map with the contures of main part. Who can make the texture?
Blind texture files are here.

Re: USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

I can do it. I just need to install Photoshop and DDS Filters (format C: was done yesterday). However, that would be nice to see my work. Is this possible to create a map where i can see my unit wjen trying to draw it? BTW: Who made Dorsetshire texture? It's really cool.

Re: USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

Ok EST, but can u wait a little bit? There was a probelm with importing, and now we have to modify our 3d model. After that we have to recreate UV map, then u can work on texture.
I didnt do Dorsetshire's texture, we just got it from the creator of 3d modeller.

Yes they would... but it wouldn't be an accurate represenation.  According to one source I found, the only US fighter capable of being used on CVEs were FM-2 Wildcats (not to be confused with F4Fs)

Re: USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

Hi Trivia,
Toward the end of the war, specifically during the invasion of Japan they were onboard escort carriers doing ground attack roles.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vought_F4U_Corsair, for a good brief on the Corsair.

She also was capable of carrying other types.

but perhaps theres a reason why she would be fit for smaller aircraft. But she did!

Re: USS GAMBIER BAY CVE73

For textures, make only contour textures. I'll do the rest. BTW: Who made Dorsetshire texture? It's very good.

  • alantay11 : Is there a way to fill up the empty ship slots when using SurgeonSasha's Yamato? Or is it my game not showing the models?
  • Axis_Crusher : Thanks, but we already implemented both ships in the Advanced Warfare Pack a few months ago...

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
