I uh, sure! I'll post some pictures.

As I said, it's not perfect, but she works, and I'll probably work on her some more.

I just need some help with the nitty gritty bits, I'm not a 3d modeller, but I did manage to edit the model a little without trouble.

I mostly need textures done.

That, ZenoGuy, is awesome! welldone. You can only improve on it and you can never go backwards.

Sry mate, I sincerely have no knowledge on that subject.

I'm sure one of the skilled modders will pick up this thread and be able to assist you.

Darn!

Curious, could you please download it, and point out any issues? I'd love to have some feedback with some actual testing.

As far as I am aware of, it should have a working hitbox, periscope depth, etc.

I uh, doubt it will there. XD

I'm planning on doing a revamp of the model, and properly learn how to texture and such, to make it look nicer. ^_^

Okay, so a productive day has resulted in a perfected texture of the I-400!

I finally learned how to unwrap/wrap, and apply the vanilla texture properly.

Now there's some drawbacks, in making the wrapping more complex (Proper shadows and such), I needed a larger texture size, so you might experience it taking a little while to load in to start, but I did not notice any performance loss at all.

The link is the same, but I'll post it again anyway.

This new version also comes with more flotilla starts (all vanilla ones).

I need to texture the rudder, propellers, and try making the rear diveplane and fore diveplanes animated (Jurying rigging the vanilla ones to them, sorry, I am not an animator!)

I would greatly appreciate any feedback and advice!

Amy screens hits of the new I-400?

Also, does this mod change the German torpedoes to Japanese ones?

This is more of a "What if America decided to refit their captured I-400's which they captured in 1941 for some reason" mod, it adds the I-400 on the US side. Sorry!

I could easily make a variant for the Germans.

It does not change any vanilla torpedo.

I'll post some screenshots in a sec!
