Regards, LGN1
Speaking of the River Class. I would use his river class haha but I'm seeing it as FFRiver so would I make it unit type 2. Also those are interwar US destroyers so they wouldn't match up too well with the US DDs maybe a US DDE though

LGN1,
no, better do not replace the original (stock) SH3 US destroyers. In case you feel for replacing stock NDE_River, I suggest using either A or B class DDs.

Scout614,
in case you have a FFRiver, you do not refer to stock SH3. In stock SH3, there's no FFRiver. Some big mods renamed the NDE_River to NDD_A&B.

This has to be one of the most detailed models for SH3 .

Just adapted it to my SH4 installation. I really love it.

Hello JapLance,

I am not surprised you adapted the model to SH4

Pictures?

Since the idea was to do (almost) everything from scratch, I finally did my own version of the French AA weapons. Hope you like them.

I don't run SH4 too much lately, other than checking ships in the museum. But for these magnificent ships I did a quick test mission.

Here is a "Division de contre-torpilleurs" in the Mediterranean under Vichy flag:



And this is a view in the Museum of the Le Terrible in 1944.



Soon, a pic of one of your new Scott-class in Spanish neutrality livery .

SH4 graphics can be rather smashing ...

I didn't do the Spanish neutrality liveries, with the huge flags painted on the hull sides. Argentine, RN, or RAN vessels sporting Spanish colours on the hull would have been a rather awkward view. The texture system of SH3 has its merits but also some serious drawbacks

Well, I could have created an equipment file, holding the hull flags, plus extra nodes for those flags in the *.dat., plus additional equipment layouts ... I didn't ...

Hello the_frog !

I'm searching for british destroyers which are better looking as in SH3 stock game. Did you model one or two of them ?

There is a destroyer I would like to see well modeled : it is the german 1936A-class destroyer, or Narvik-class destroyer. I find her very graceful, and it would be so great that you could model her with as accuracy as you did for Le Fantasque class !!!!



Best regards

F.

Hello Fahnenbohn,

I am no more using my old signature, which, as Scout614 pointed out, links to a blog. There you find most things I did the last years:

https://unionunabhaengigerwerften.wordpress.com/

... and remember, always install the newest version of the library files last.

There is a pretty good model of the Typ 1936A destoyers in the Soviet Waterways SH4 mod. Nobody converted it to SH3 so far.

Cheers -- the Frog

Thank you for your link, the_frog !
I have not SH4. Is it hard to convert a model from SH4 to SH3 ? That would be so great if you could do that for me ! ...

Fahnenbohn,

usually, converting models from SH4 to SH3 no big thing. However, some of the 3D models that come with the SW mod do cause trouble. That's why I gave up converting SW models.

In Operation Monsoon for SH4 there is a Narvik destroyer:



Since I'm not really familiar with German destroyers, I'm not completely sure if it's the one Fahnenbohn is looking for, but it looks quite similar to the one in his pic.

JapLance, that seems to be the model that is also in Soviet Waterways for SH4. I just realised, it actually depicts the Typ 1936A (mob) subclass.
