[MISC] Ekranoplan (Caspian sea monster)

[mod=Ekranoplan (Caspian sea monster)][previmg]Image[/previmg]
[moddesc=http://www.mediafire.com/file/1kc9n3l3p ... noplan.zip]DESCRIPTION OF MOD

Behold the legend that is...The Ekranoplan. Nicknamed the Caspian sea monster, this was a Ground Effect Vehicle which used the ground effect principle to operate. Now you can "fly" this legend yourself on ysflight! This mod features a low lag base, panel lines, Water spray/wake and a detailed cockpit. Acheiving a ground effect in the dat proved a tough task so please do not critique me that it has no altitude constraints. For more infomation on how to fly the Ekranoplan read the "read me" notepad in the file. Have fun flying this as much as i did creating it! :D

P.s Credit me if you wish to re-paint this.[/moddesc]
[instmod]1. open the "aircraft" file.
2. copy the files from the "aircraft" file into the main ysflight "aircraft" file.
3. open the "User" file.
4. copy the files from the "User" file into the main ysflight "User" file.[/instmod][/mod]

AWSOME!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Obviously you haven't seen this in the game yet Alfa.
It is in dire need of assembly as in the engines are not even close to being where they are suppose to be this is some vary shabby work man did you even review it before you posted it.

Edit:Sorry for coming off so hard on you man.Its late and I am tired and hurting.I am sorry.But it seems your .dnm got corrupted some how.

This is the aircraft as Gunny and I downloaded it. The entire body is off center by around 3 meters, and the forward engine pods are mounted at an angle. There are other curiosities, but these are by far the most significant. These discrepancies were noted in the current version of fsmaindx, and in the English language version of dnm viewer.

Saw a documentary about this monster in it a while back. If you can get those engines in place it will be an awesome plane...ship...hovercraft thingie.
