Okay, I have finally found the discussion that I was telling you about. I didn't re-read it all (yet), but it might contain the key to your problem:

If memory serves me well those files were inherited from OHII, and they are the remains of an attempt to import a more realistic Catalina model in SH5. IIRC the model used was the one contained in GWX, but after some failed attempts to make it damageable by other units, it was finally discarded.
After many years, I think that problems wasn't insurmontable, but I don't think that retrying to import the same plane again is worth it: I seem to remember that some later supermod for SHIII or SHIV has a better Catalina model, and some even better models are on my HD

I know this thread :-) That's where I've learned how to make main model accept multiple textures. The problem is, LOD file for any gr2 plane in my game, even when I change its main material from "skin" to "cfg#TXRskin", keeps using only default texture.

Okay, from the day after tomorrow I won't be at home and probably I won't have time to test anything, but maybe tomorrow I will; I want to see if the same problem happens on my rig and with vanilla game...

Default Test mission

For Gap or anyone who'd like to help test it: I've put a simple single mission on file sharing website:

https://ufile.io/c5i2m7up

Unpack into "Single Missions" folder. It puts British Catalina right above player's boat, if you go to external camera and look up you should see it.

Speaking of LOD models, I was suprised to find that FloatingPlane_LOD.gr2 is actually.... the same model as FloatingPlane.gr2. At least, its number of vertices is the same and I don't see any visual difference either. And its not just this plane - half the GR2 format planes have LOD models with equal or higher number of vertices than the "detailed" model: US Heavy Bomber, Beaufort, Fulmar, Me 109, Arado, FW200, Savoia, C200 fighter...

Ok, I'm not a game designer or 3D modeler but I don't get what is the point of having a LOD model that is more complicated than regular model?

This mod is a great idea. I'd like to contribute a little. Let me present to you one of the less known plane from WWII era, Grumman J2F "Duck". For me the most badass plane ever build. Let's just enjoy the video:









Found this forgotten legend somewhere on subsim long time ago. The model creator is Testpilot1978. It was created for SH3 with GWX. I just converted it for SH5 very quick and unpolished.


If there is interest I can provide files for implementing it in this mod.

Hi Oby!

Sorry for belated reply, I've not been very active on forums recently but I plan to find more time for SH5 modding this month. Lovely plane! Provided Testpilot1798 gives his permission as well, sure, it would be a great addition. And, since quick Wiki check tells me it was also used by Argentinian Navy, it would (after making a second paint scheme) allow to add one more airforce that is not currently represented in game.
