On the "Aircraft you would like to see in FH2?" thread I showed one of my 3D airplane models and made the suggestion of doing a Sabre vs Mig-15 Korean War map similar to No Fly Zone on DC as a little sideline attraction for FH players. A forum member (who can identify himself if he so wishes) responded to my idea saying he could do the mapping and coding. Since this map will only have jets, that is all we need to do the project is a modeler, mapper and coder. Although I have the modeling skill to do this project, I lack in a lot of other technical areas. So I decided to have my good buddy Alberto who is a professional 3D graphic artist help me out http://manikanimation.com/eng.html
As a request Id like to ask if anyone here can find 3-view drawings for both the Sabre and Mig-15. We found a good 2-view drawing for the Mig, but are missing frontal view, and we havent found anything decent at all for the Sabre. Please send any such drawings to betito (at) manikanimation (dot) com
If you have any questions, we'll be glad to answer. we hope to have a website up soon so we dont take up bandwidth from the FH forums.

Great idea, good luck with it arquebus.

Thanks Anlushac11, but I found that one right away also, and its just too rough a drawing. We want these jets to look really good close up and were going to need a fully accurate 3-view to do that. We will be spending a lot of time making sure the shape is as close as we can get with the alloted poly count.
Gnomey- That is absolutely fantastic! I was really worried we werent going to come up with any decent design drawings, but youve got the whole works. Just fantastic!

Is this mod going to focus 100% on F-86 and Mig dog fighting? If so can you get more detailed as far as bullet drop, changing the engines alt limit, and making an advanced damage model... or am I just wishing on a star:confused:

If this mod turns out to be a success we will add more planes and maps.The Ultimate Drifter;3410070If so can you get more detailed as far as bullet drop, changing the engines alt limit, and making an advanced damage model
Yes we are going to go for more realistic physics. I dont handle the coding but I can tell you that things we want to strive for is more realistic acceleration, so we'll have full runway takeoffs, and speed will have to be built up to manuever aerobatically. More realistic momentum, no more backing off the throtal and hanging in mid air like a leaf. As you may know, the Mig had a greater turning radius and climb than the F-86, so that advantage will be coded in. As far as engine altitude limit, we would like to encourage dogfights to take place at high altitude, so we might throw in a (realistic) speed advantage for higher altitude. As far as damage model, the game engine simply switches from a normal model to a wrecked model, so no, dont expect gradual damage (although it might be possible, Im not ruling it out).

We take requests! Keep your suggestions coming!
Here's an update: Im almost finished modeling both planes. My friend Alberto backed out of the project so now Im going to have a tough time trying to figure out how to do the texturing and animating. So if anyone would like to take over the import process for me once I have the planes finished, Id appreciate it. My email again is [email]arquebus257WeaMag at yahoo dot com[/email]
