Post subject: USNF E2C Hawkeye Shape imported to FA Futures... Reply with quote
I received some USNF Shapes from eburger68 and have looked them over for possible use in FA Futures. The one promising shape is the E2C Hawkeye shape and skin. However there are some issues. See my post below from Zephyrnet...

Ok I overcame the XP-SP2 error and got the USNF E2C shape/skin to work in FA Futures...

That is the good news, but the bad news is no animations on the shape, no landing gear, no hook, no flaps...

So essentially its only useful as an inflight shape. I can still use it as a model for altering the FA E2C to match it, and I can even use the existing skin if I want to.

But overall its not much more then airborne eye candy...

Screenshots below...










There is also a skin stretching issue that I will have to fix if I use this shape. See how the national insignia gets stretched below...

I like the USNF A6E Intruder and the EA-6B Prowler shapes as well and will be importing them to FAF as well...

They seem to have SOME working animations, like landing gear and landing hooks. I will post images of them tomorrow...

That is a great looking Hawkeye CAG! Will we be using it in your latest version of FA Futures?

A similiar version will be in FAF, based on the existing E-2C shape (a much improved version of course) as this older shape has no landing gear or other animations other then the props...

And its distance for the lower resoultion LODs of the shape is way to short and the shape loses its detailed LOD much to soon compared to current FAF shapes...
