Yes, it would be.
But i think i need to ask permissions to "copy" this solution from author. Who was original lights' modder? Maybe Anvart?

ps please nothe that this unit will be "neutral" ingame for a short time, with war, she'll be converted in a gray, darkened auxiliary cruiser (using library and dates):





Best regards,
Vd

Hello,

in case of problems with strange light reflections, I might be able to help.

Consider using a better catapult model and probably a deck texture with higher resolution. Otherwise a really nice ship

Cheers

Hello,

I am amusing myself with another model(s). So, send the model when you think it is (almost) ready.

Cheers

.. all models have submodels

Seriously, I decided I do not want to see the new model of the Shiny Sheff heading for the Barents Sea in company of an original SH3 model of the Fighting J ...

Excellent jon VonDos!

I have still a few remarks based on the comparison of your 3D model with the scale pictures you have posted a few post back:

- the big air vents are absent from the AMC version of the liner. In their place you should add a number of smaller vents and gun turrets, together with what seem to be observation posts (?). The new structures include an island on the flight deck, abaft the catapult.

- Also note that promenade decks afetr, are mostly replaced by closed compartments, though there seem to be some discrepancies between the original '42 picture and the picture of the scale model you are using as reference.

- The deck configuration seem to have changed slightly after the AMC conversion. Most notably, a cylindrical structure (a conning tower, or maybe a RADAR, no idea) was added on top of the deck, extending in height over the first funnel stack (its profile can be clearly seen in the 1942 picture).

- Last, though I have no evidence for that, I would replace the wooden decks with metal ones.

That's all I can say for now. Gap off

Just another wip image, more works needed (island on the flight deck, abaft the catapult, iss next step) =)
Note, with library i can now change unit colors changing museum's year! Different hull and funnels colors, but also, for example, removed walls for make place for side main guns...

I've also added red and green light in command deck's wings (only into the night)...

Best regards,
Vd

This has probably become the most complex and most "experimental" of your ships, VonDos. Can't wait to see the troopship version

Yet another of my notes: I see the AMC version is still manning the red ensign. I don't remember if civil ensigns are used by default in game for type 13 - Auxiliary Cruiser units (in case you already switched to that type for the early-mid war version of the ship). In any case, after commissioning in the RN, the ship should sail under the white ensign... if the game doesn't switch to it automatically, you can force it manually by replacing the FLG node with a regular equipment node, and by assigning cloned versions of the two flags (stored in the library folder, as usual) through eqp file

At moment unit type is one for all times... how can i change unit type during war?
Flag idea is really interesting, must try it!

BTW, Voilà the island:

Hello,

Great work here !

Could you just replace the wood deck texture with a better one ? (I think The_Frog has already proposed his help). And I agree with Gap for a metal deck during the war.

All the best !
