USS Missouri

  • Hi All,


    I was just wondering if there is a scenery object for this ship? I could not see it when using the Oahu scenery and cultivation.

    We used the USS Iowa, I think, as the Big Mo when we did the Oahu scenery a couple of years ago. Mostly just a number difference for sister ships. I will check the archives tomorrow if no one steps up with the files. We have a great member with the user name of ussiowa. Does that give you any ideas? :/8o

  • Yep you can use the Iowa we have, except of course the location has to be changed. They are sister ships, so indeed mostly a number difference (63 for the Missouri, 61 for the Iowa). There are others small differences, but I doubt anyone will spot them as they are little details really, and very hard to spot from a fly over.

    The Iowa model we have however is a 1940's version, which would not be realistic for either ship (or the other two for that matter) as their museum shape is more of the 1980 configuration. But again unless you're a specialist, not easy to know the difference, although that one is more prevalent in a fly over if one knows what to look for. Just nitpicking because I can ^^


    Another interesting story is that when I first got FS2 I was looking for the Iowa of course on the ortho photos, and I couldn't find it in Suisun bay where it was mothballed for many years, nor could I find it in San Pedro where it was a museum.

    Finally I happened to find it in Richmond where it was parked a few months for refurbishment, which gives me a very close date as for when the ortho photos were taken (early 2012).

  • Call me ignorant but I cannot see a link that will get me to files relating to the Missouri placed at Ford Island. I fired up my FSXSE to check it out in the Megascenery Hawaii and found this which is quite bizarre! I am thinking a missing ship in AFS2 is better than this result!!

    There is no such link indeed. There is a link to a 3D object that can be used to be placed there if you know how to place it. That is all that is available I'm afraid, unless someone wants to do it for you (I don't know how to). The link will place the Iowa in San Pedro.

  • Hi All,

    Good on you for just getting the scenery up and running! Its one of the ones with absolutely no instructions, so I never did figure out quite how to install it.

  • Hey Ray ;) just from my WIP files.

    I remember those things very well. I have found a bunch of old jpgs but, not the scenery files for AFS2. I think they may be in a closet someplace on one of those old 1TB disks. I have 4 of them and have to hook up the usb box etc. Maybe tomorrow.


    I do have the tmb files and associated other files for adding some nice ships to FS2. You gotta know how to do it and how to use orientation and elevation to get them just right. Patuxent, Intrepid, Nimitz, Iowa, Arizona Memorial, Nimitz fleet.


    I added a lot of navy ships around Pearl City and the main docks. Also added the Nimitz Attack Group offshore with wakes (remember when DaveW added that?)

  • No I don't remember. Memory is not my strong suit anyway, I didn't even remembered I had done all this work, just rediscovered it on my computer. This is WIP that never went anywhere AFAIK, I don't think any of it was ever implemented, it was just in design stage.

    The SBX was implemented by DaveW but there were a lot of texture, hidden faces issues at the time, that I remember and we just gave up.


    Yes I remember the naval group off of Pt Mugu (not the wake though), still have it.
