EDI UCAV Request

Post by Lightning » Mon Oct 10, 2011 9:03 am

Hello there,
After the "Stealth" movie project I have been doing, I have started to mod EDI UCAV, but after 100 tries i have gave it up due to my crappyness on modding such planes.
I wonder if anyone here would help me to create it. I will be really thankful for that >.<

That IS a good request. Also you should post pics of it.

This has been on my to-do list for years, but it is a tough project.

I do have the 1337 skills to do it now I think, but it'd be a long project, so don't expect me to take it up any time soon.

The main issue is that the plane manoeuvres by bending its wings, not with flaps, etc.

So to make it, you need to make at the very least, a dozen moving parts for each wing.

Getting them to move in synch (as the wing bends down laterally and longitudinally) will be tough and without doing tons of parts per wing, you'll end up having a very blocky looking wing (as each part, when it moves, is going to reflect light in a different direction - to make the change of reflection seem smooth, you need to make a lot of parts / surfaces.

You could always make it a GAC or Birdfarm plane and not have moving surfaces, but that takes away the awe of the plane imo.

You could also have separate states of the wing appear when each surface is triggered (when neutral, wings appear 'flat' when you roll left, the 'flat' wing disappears and a bent one appears in its place), but that wouldn't work well if you were trying to pitch and roll.

There is an EDI in YSF already.
I found this model during my search for any "unknown" planes.

Not many moving parts. Just the gears, bomb bays, flaps and hover mode for all I know.

Found it on this site: http://happinesssymphony.web.fc2.com/
I have to say, this site has a lot of cool and very, very large models.

This might have not answered the modding question, but I hope this answers the addon request question.

Note: The pack has a lot of models that shouldn't be on most servers. So if you're going to put them in a server, modify the weapons and autogunners first, or at least remove all the autogunners.
Currently semi-active.

:O!! Thank you for that, and now I should be able to modify it and test it so i could get a balance and a thrill of it

and holy Sheet, all the models there are op in some ways. The EDI is unbalancely too fast and the take off speed is unrealistic

the motherships and cruisers also mid air aircraft carriers has unbalancely too powerful in terms of HP and turrets, I even recall they have 40 turrets or more with gun strength of 50 and their craft hp of 500+ at least.

I also have another question, what is a good number of turrets for cruisers, carriers and motherships?

And maybe dragon could do it for me instead :P

You may wanna rethink your last sentence.
Remaking this pack is a hard one for one person and takes time.
Theres a huge possibility of NO than YES, unless youre really lucky.
