This is volume 2 of aircraft carrierness. Why a separate upload? I couldn't figure out how to add more airports to the other one. By the time I did I'd done too much work to integrate it into the old version. It'll also be easier to keep track of updates with this a separate file.
There are two separate folders in this version so don't forget you need to go down a level to paste both of them. The second folder holds the settings for the arrestor cables from the Enterprise mod.
For newcomers these are a bunch of static aircraft carriers, or carrier groups, that are operational airports spread across the world. Since they're airports you can start from them and locate them.
You need version 3.9 of this - https://flightsim.to/file/4930/aircraft-carrier-uss-msfs-uk-mooring to use as a library.
Google map here Aircraft Carrier Group Locations The newest locations are at the bottom of the side bar.
Volume 2 locations are yellow. Blue is Volume 1. There's a txt file inside the download with the same coordinates and descriptions.
If you didn't obtain it from the main file description, then this freeware program gives you catapult and arrestor functions - https://msfs.touching.cloud/mods/cloud-assistant/
This mod by TouchingCloud will give the F/A-18 its own carrier functionality which means you don't need to run a separate app - https://flightsim.to/file/23760/f-a-18-super-warrior
To go with the above mod for a physical catapult, arrestor wires and carrier crew you need to download this by PhotosbyKev which is a package with the relevant items - https://flightsim.to/file/24323/carrier-ops-uss-enterprise
As with the other version, runway 10, which is present at most modern locations, is always a helipad on a ship to start on. All ships with helipads are landable.
There are two different versions. The second download does not star the airports if you don't want a map filled with them.
You need to turn off crashes and turn off takeoff and landing assistance.
I'm certainly looking forward to the Top Gun addon but not even Xenu will offer you this much choice.
I decided to make more of a virtue of being able to place an airport anywhere, so in addition to crowdpleasers like a US carrier near Naval Air Stations, there are locations such as Point Nemo, the furthest point from land on Earth for unusualtons who enjoy flying for hours over the sea, to the Kerguelen Islands and it was also time to install a HMS Prince of Wales in the depths of the Grand Canyon.
I've also added more World War Two themes at various locations. I gave up trying to figure out the exact locations for carriers at events like the Battle of Midway and put them in more accessible places. If you know stuff like this then please inform me.
The WW2 centrepiece is ACOK Scapa Flow so that's where I'd go first if that's your thing.
Enter 'WW2' in the search box on the flight planning screen and all these locations will appear.
Is for the WW2ists.
I spent the afternoon drooling at my screen with a ruler trying to figure out the locations for the carriers at the Battle of Midway. I think I got it sort of right. There are four locations to start from which are sort of their correct positions at the key moments.
The other location is the Akagi off Kyoto having a much more peaceful time.
