V 3.9

There 2 folders in this download -  So don't forget you need to go down a level to paste them.

In the separate folder I've added the arrestor wires from the Touching Cloud mod to these carriers. Why separate? Some of us (me) might be far too lazy to aim properly and just want to smack into the deck and stop.

Other than that I've cleaned up some mistakes, realigned the ILS, improved a few deck textures and details and added some WW2 Japanese carriers that'll show up in Volume 2 at some point soon. 

 

 

It's  aircraft carrier time. This is a carrier group placed in locations around the world. 

Volume 2 with new locations is available here - https://flightsim.to/file/18058/aircraft-carrier-group-volume-2

You need this download to use as a library for volume 2. 

 

Google Map of current locations - Google Map of Carrier Locations

Volume 2 locations are in yellow. Newest locations are at the bottom of the side bar. 

 


For proper carrier operations there is a freeware third party program that will give you arrestor and catapult functions at the link below. It works great. 

https://msfs.touching.cloud/mods/cloud-assistant/

 

This mod by TouchingCloud will give the F/A-18 its own carrier functionality which means you don't need to run a separate app - https://flightsim.to/file/23760/f-a-18-super-warrior

For a physical catapult and carrier crew you need to download this by PhotosbyKev which is a package with the relevant times - https://flightsim.to/file/24323/carrier-ops-uss-enterprise

 

Also the Indiafoxtecho T45 has its own functions too now so worth a try if you have it.


These carriers are nothing more than lumps of terraformed and dried out sea with a model on top. The irritations are down to making them usable airports that'll show up in the map. A dumb surface to land on would look better and be easier to do but would be less usable. 

You need to turn off crashes to use these. 

For helicopter fans every single ship, carrier or not, has landable helipads but I may have forgotten a few. 

In many locations there are the same three carriers. To make things clearer each ship has the same runway number at each location. If the ships are different the runway numbers start with 04 onwards. 

Runway 01 - A HMS Queen Elizabeth at 280 metres. 

Runway 02 - A Nimitez-esque carrier at around 340 metres. 

Runway 03 - An Admiral Kuznetsov at 304 metres. 

Why would Russians be trundling around with Americans and Brits? Kaiju of course. 

Runway 10 - Is always a helipad on a non carrier such as a frigate or replenishment ship. If there's a helipad on any other ship you can land on it, but this is one you can spawn on. 

ATC is present. ILS appears in the guts of the file but probably doesn't work. It never does for me. I really need to figure that one out.

 

Compromises

There is no pushback and no fuel apart from the oceans carriers. It won't place items outside official terrain, so once you're parked up you might be there for good if you're on the large side. 

With the way the runway starts are placed if you're in an airliner you may well be sunk before you start. I'll try to fine tune their location. 

These seem to often run a bit choppily for me. This actually starts before I even install a model so there's something going on with the sim either with open water or terraforming in it. Not sure why.

Most of the models do have a hard surface to land on, but the rest of them is not a collision object. Making an entire model collidable is very, very hit and miss so I gave up for now. 

The ATC often seems to be rather confused, can't blame them.

 All names begin with 'carrier' so type that in the map screen and a list of them will appear. 


Americas

San Francisco in the bay near Alcatraz. ICAO - ACSF. Coordinates -      37.853931, -122.403854

New York in Manhattan. ICAO - ACNY. Coordinates - 40.602660, -74.043143  

Carribbean somewhere between the Britsh and American Virgin Islands. ICAO - ACVI. Coordinates -    18.08908, -65.0524

Rio de Janeiro outside the bay but not too far away if you want to pop in to town. ICAO - ACRJ. Coordinates -    -23.029428, -43.002231

Norfolk Virginia  Out to sea a few miles from Virginia Beach. ICAO - ACNV. Coordinates -    36.858646,    -75.814215. Mindless carrier models that aren't runways have been left in the dockyard.  

San Diego  Close to town and the naval yard. Three carriers are landable but without runways as this is partially on photogrammetry terrain which really, really doesn't like being terraformed. ICAO - ACSD.  Coordinates -     32.652786, -117.194432

Falklands This is a full blown extravaganza. One regular carrier group . ICAO - ACFM. Coordinates -    -51.467110, -61.036887.  One HMS Hermes in San Carlos Water. ICAO - ACSC. Coordinates -      -51.523275, -59.076374

There are also three ships to find East and North East of Stanley, another HMS Hermes - how odd, HMS Invincible and the, or a, Atlantic Conveyor type thing. They are not airports but they are landable. The models and textures aren't A1. Can't be bothered to correct that right now. I would love to have stuck in a ARA 25 de Mayo and proper period escort ships but there's not much out there.

Anyone know when this will be available again?

Mods no longer workin?

Shows up in content manager but doesn't in game.

le mod ne fonctionne pas, j'ai bien mis le fichier dans l'onglet community comme tous les autres, mais au lancement du jeu, aucun des porte avions n'est présent sur la map. avez-vous une solution ?

is it SU9 compatible? please tag it if it is so. thanks

Some beautiful ships Rear Sir Admiral Spud...I used your LHD and O.H.Perry Class in a 'Captain Phillips / Maersk Alabama / Somalia / Seal Team 6' video which mostly featured Henrik's Global AI ships (his channel won't accept comments sadly but I did credit him of course in the video). However as I brazenly borrowed 2 of your excellent ships in the same video I felt obliged to give thanks for your works of perfection too in the following YouTube video https://youtu.be/t8Y-8N1Dd6Y

PS thanks for the Old Man of Hoy.

it does not work for me,both folders are in the community folder, when i type in carrier it doesnt show up, i tried it a couple of times and it still doesnt work, i even reinstalled msflight sim

For me, it unfortunately doesn't work (since WU8). For ex., starting at LXBG, flight loads 40%, than stops. I have to kill MSFS via taskmanager.

Volume 2 seems to work.

Hi, for whatever reason my aircraft carriers are pink nodes. Any reason why this happened?

It says its not compatible with sim update 8

Great Add On. Thank you! Why do your aircraft carriers take over and dominate my list of airports in the drop down window? I would like to see the normal airports here and NOT just carriers. Please give us back our airport menu. Thank you.

should i put it in communty or something else?

I enter 'carrier' in the search box and the listing comes up with names like 'carrier Yokohama', 'carrier San Francisco', etc. Is that correct? I don't see the names of carriers. When I click Fly, there is a carrier there with my plane on it, but the location marker is named as on the list. I see no real ship's name.

i cant even find it in msfs2020

Is it possible to edit the location of carriers?

When i spawn and push the throttle my speed suddently decreases and i barely get off the deck just to fall in to the water, why is this

hi. is this SU8 compatible?

Why do they look like lumps in the water?

How do you install ??? i have it in my community folder along with my other mods but this mod isnt loaded when i start up the game

Great MOD, thank you. Can I create a carrier at any location that I wish? If so, then how do I do it? Thank you.

    Deals with a few oddities created by SU6.

    Also resized parking spots and the odd runway to try and stop the SH/UH60 from disappearing into the water.

    Moved VASI lights to the edges of the runways.

    Some models replaced. Some new deck textures.
