CVN "Infinity"(Realistic Catapults)

CVN "Infinity"-Intro

Finally, after months of building, modification and test, now it's complete-A nuclear powered aircraft carrier with 3 realistic catapults and 3 different kinds of full-featured carrier-based aircrafts.

I named it "Infinity",that's because its main hull and superstructure are modeled after the carrier in the game Sky Gamblers:Infinite Jets.

About a year ago,I tried to design a catapult with springs and magnets.Despite it performed poorly,my attempt to DIY catapult-assisted take-off finally made progress.It was version 1.8 at that time,there was no Funky Trees back then,so I couldn't think out any better design.Gradually I gave up this project.

But what I didn't expect was that the magical Funky Trees appeared a few months later.I redesigned the catapult with springs and magnets that separates automatically.After hundreds of experiments and adjustments,it finally became reliable.

So I started to looking for a carrier for my catapult.As soon as the carrier in Sky Gamblers came into my view,I knew that is it.Then this aircraft carrier project was decided.


Controls

There are many functional equipments available on Infinity.I will introduce the methods of use of them one by one.

Elevator

Activate Group1,nothing special.

Catapults and Aircrafts

These are the most important parts of Infinity.Let's take a look at carrier-based aircrafts first.

Fighter-1
Fighter-1,based on F/A-18.
(Modified by Jundroo's Wasp)

Fighter-2
Fighter-2,based on J-15/Su-33.
(Modified by FinnRiChie's J-11 fighter)

AEW
AEW,based on KJ-600 and E-2C

All 3 aircrafts are equipped with Ground Shifting System(GSS)(Well,don't mind that name.I don't know how to call it either XD).Just use Pitch,Roll and Yaw to move them on deck.

Group4 for Activating Fighter-1
Group5 for Activating Fighter-2
Group6 for Activating AEW
FireGuns(Space) for guns
By the way,I've reserved some pylons on the 2 Fighters,use FireWeapons(LAlt) to release the payloads.You can add more weapons to the pylons if you want.

Next,the catapults.I'll demonstrate with Fighter-2 and starboard catapult.

Step1:Use the GSS to move the aircraft in front of the baffle

Step2:Activate Group2,let the catapult get ready and raise the baffle.Then move the aircraft to connect to catapult slider.

Step3:Activate Group3 for flaps,set throttle to about 50%.

Step4:Take a deep breathe.Deactivate Group2,DO NOT PRESS PITCH,ROLL OR YAW UNTIL YOU LEAVE THE FLIGHT DECK.Now you're airborne,enjoy you flight,pilot!

Self-Defense Weapons

CIWS(Close-In Weapon System) x1 (Pitch & Roll)
AAM(Anti-Air missiles) x2 (VTOL&Trim) (Modified by the HHQ-10s on FinnReignSUPREME's Type 056 frigate)
ASR(Anti-Submarine Rockets) x1 (Trim)
Flare Projector x1
Just selected the weapon that you want to use at the weapon selection menu.

Night Navigation Lights

Activate Group7


Q&A

Q:Where is the barrier? How can I land?
A:You mean landing on this carrier? These planes are disposable, so are pilots. How can they land?(x),Actually I don't know how to do that either.As you can see,I didn't install functional barriers and ILS.I'm working with a friend to design barriers,maybe you'll see them in my next project.

Q:(Waiting for your questions!)

    I am playing on mobile and the ship is large and it might crash my game and I think you should probably make it smaller but the same ship and mobile friendly

    Hey guys I found out how to land back on the carrier, with no modifications! Step one: get close. Step two: press restart here.

    @Zarya
    First,thank you sincerely for your test and feedback.
    I don't know if you're the only one, but I've never experienced that.
    Maybe it's not about the superstructure.Pistons were used to build catapults and elevators.Unfortunately,according to my test,the elevator pistons have a probability to be damaged after every load,but I haven't find the solution to this problem.It may be the reason.

    @FinnZachary also by the way it's a nice carrier but when you play it for too long it will show you piston damage and then the superstructure will blow up for unknown reasons damaging the whole carrier and god the sound when it explodes hurt my ear, am I the only one experiencing this????

    @FinnZachary when I downloaded it it works, btw nice carrier I've tried it noice, but when I run it, it consumes 4gb of my ram, but at least it runs smooth in high quality settings
