wolf_howl15 SH5 Liberty Ship for SH3

Hello,

After many hours of work and tests, I'm pleased to release this Liberty ship converted from SH5. It replaces the one you already have in your stock game files, so they will appear in your campaign !

Features :

- Very nice and detailed model from SH5 ! Strange light reflections corrected by the_frog.

- The ship can break in two parts.

- All guns' and searchlights' nodes fixed, traverse parameters all corrected.

- Reworked cargos : tanks and trucks correctly scaled, reworked textures, new aircrafts (Wildcats), biggest load of crates and oil barrels. The ship's deck is now fully loaded with special nodes. To change the cargo type, you have to change the "loadout definition", the "external storage" is no more working. By default, the deck is loaded with crates.

- Textures reworked by me.

- Detailed flag (by Testpilot).

Hahahaha ! I wanted to start conversion of KGV ! And it's already done !

Did you convert these units yourself, or did you "find" them, and where ? I badly want the SH5 KGV for years !

The V&W I would love to do that ship. They filled an important role in the early war destroyer shortage as escort leaders for convoys. rowi58 and the_frog gave me permissions for the SHV import Flower Class Corvette, and they were attached at the hip in the early years to V&Ws as in "The Cruel Sea" Movie. ( I apologize for shameless promotion screenshot since I have yet to start several wip threads )

Was Kovall the one who did the conversions or Rowi?

OK. Solved this. It appears that the M01 is not allowed for merchant ships. I have to write S01 instead. Good to know.

... the V&Ws had much in common with the Leader destroyers ...

Meaning: I am thinking from time to time to prepare an all new V&W model. Unfortunately, there a plenty of options what to do: only the original V&Ws or also the modified 4.7" version, the WAIRs, the LREs, the SREs ... the ones I like best are the WAIRs ... so, probably only those ...

Let's see.

Kovall converted the SH5 model. It is basically an upgraded SH3 model, with still not fully correct hull and superstructures. And the camouflage on the AO map is an USN Ms. 31/32 scheme ...

Most merchant ships have M01 nodes and they work well. Just check the equipment files ...

You use a rather vanilla version of SH3, right? Consider that the original gun library used textures of the ships (the "normal"--"complete" thing). That caused plenty of problems and has been eliminated in the modded versions of the gun libraries.

P.S.: The imported Liberty cargo looks fine. You did it
