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.

  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
