CALLING ALL MODDERS: YSFHQ PACK NEEDS YOU!

Post by Iceman » Wed May 04, 2011 1:32 am

So I got to thinking. The Oranleed pack and CEP2, all those packs are good and solid, but the creators are hard to reach and the work is slowly getting outdated with each new release. So I had a thought - I want to begin the YSFHQ Pack.

The pack will be called HQP, and the fun part? I want this pack to contain a high-detail scratch-built new model for each aircraft listed in the stock aircraft list. The ultimate goal is to create those aircraft and their variants as almost an alternative to the stock aircraft, making this pack something of a one stop shop for newbies. A lot of aircraft are due for a good make over, and any help is appreciated.

Want to contribute? I'm going to open a special subforum in the WIP section just for this pack, because it's a community effort. If you wish to do an aircraft, simply state the aircraft you would like to do in a new thread (much like the WIP threads here) and start updating and modding. The DATs should be checked over before entering the main pack, but it would be fun to have a whole slew of modders put this together. And I know I got the dream team right here.

Reply here if you're interested. People i want to see: Bombcat, Animal, Vandal, Shutter, Flake, Dragon029, Grigor, Taskforce 58, YSMajor

If you lack the skills to scratch model but you think you can paint, don't hesitate to start painting blanks. The more, the merrier. All work will be included in this pack.

Let's see, I have the 747, F-104, BAe Hawk, C-130, MiG-15 and MiG-21 that can be used, and maybe I can give the HD makeover to some of the DIF models (similar to what I did to the Tempest) for the WW2 entries in the stock a/c list.

Hell yes.

Also, if you could update them with lights and new weapons hardpoints, that would be awesome. And perhaps an inst panel too.

What kind of paint job you have in mind? Simple generic ones like the stock stuff?

That's up to you. You can make as many or as little repaints as you like, but I want to make them look realistic. The whole shebang.

As long as they include blanks.

Good stuff Ice. When this gets released I'm definitely adding it to the starter pack.

You seem to have mistaken me for someone who does high detail scratch modelling....

? I figured if they are stock aircraft replacements you'd want to re-use stock dats

This should be like INSPEP on steroids. That was the most fun YS modding I ever did. (Speaking of which, where did that go??)

In a way I carried on with the various GAC repaints in my main a/c pack, and now the Down In Flames pack is sort of the spiritual descendant.

Just tossing this out there, but maps? I know the 171st did a revamp of all stock maps at one point, but do we want a medium detail medium sized demo?

The INSPEP pack practically began the current Birdfarm/GAC wave we have going on right now. And I must say, it's awesome.
