Default [REL] Targor's SH5 Wooden Lifeboats

Good day all,

Please allow me to present my first fully fledged mod.

This mod is based on Rongel's, TDW's and stoianm's SH5Lifeboats with their permission, for which they deserve my great gratitude and appreciation.

This mod provides you with brand new model of a wooden lifeboat. It's pretty (well, that is my say and it is prejudges, as I made the model from scratch in 3ds Max 2012), so I'll just leave it to you to decide.

Hope all of you enjoy it!

It is completely compatible as for stock (should be), as for OHII (activate after OHII).
It is also compatible either on its own or with Rongel's SH5 lifeboats. If you activate this mod right after Rongel's, you will have 2 different types of lifeboats spawning.

Please note, this mod only adds wooden lifeboat; in no way am I intending to completely replace Rongel's, stoianm's and others work on the SH5 Lifeboat mod. If you want the mix of barcas and wooden boats: you will need both mods.

Unfortunately, at this time there is no way to determine from which ship which lifeboat will spawn, so that is something for future to discover.

Here are some screenshots:




Changelog:


ver. 0.4:
Corrected lifeboats sinking. Bug that took a while to discover and fix. Sorry about that.
ver. 0.3:
The number of sailors in the boat was increased to 9 total. Now it's a bit crowded! "В тесноте да не в обиде", как говоритсяю
ver. 0.2:
Adjusted settings in .sim file - mass, displacement, drag coefficients, drought. The boat no longer looks like it's jumping up just on it's keel, sitting properly in the water. Also, updated textures, switching them to .tga files (for some reason .dds kept making all textures a lot lighter, haven't figured out wth is going on); also re-done AO map for the internal part of the lifeboat (benches, floor, etc).
ver. 0.1:
Initial release. Brand new mesh from scratch created; GR2 file updated with new mesh and textures.

Download link for ver. 0.4: Targor's SH5 Wooden Lifeboats ver. 0.4
p.s. if Steve can upload it on subsim, I would greatly appreciate it.

a small remark, if you don't mind: I think you should increase a bit boat's draft. I didn't test them in game yet, but judging from your screenshots they seem to levitate over the water. This is obviously not a detriment to your wanderful mod, but just a tiny suggestion for its future improvement

gap, will see what I can do

Will be interesting to test if it's possible to do with just .sim file or i'll have to re-import the 3d model. Thanks for the advice

I think adjusting sim file properties could be enough, but finding the right settings could demonstrate a bit tricky. Probably the best way to do it, is by moving model coordinates so to make boats waterline closer to the horizontal plane (y=0), and then to fine tune the draft through sim file

that is pretty much how it is already. Will have to play with the sim file.

If you used gunboat's sim file settings as base for your wooden boats, the "problem" is likely that

P.S: try using the same settings as iambecomelife's wooden boats mod. I hope he won't mind if you steal his numbers

I'll see what is the difference.

I have adjusted the original numbers, so it's not exactly a rubber-boat, believe me :P

Nice Good to see someone putting the GR2 Editor/Viewer through it's paces I do believe that this is the first new GR2 unit in the game.
