Downlaoding F14s now. The link for the Nimitz Carrier, the post above, is broken...  Can you supply another please?

Just got to www.warfaregames.com and either search for the USS Nimitz or look for it in the recent OFP addons on the homepage.

it comes with the same F14s you downloaded then but has reworked to add an afterburn funtion (Minimum speed of 1100) and is basically used for the Nimitz addon.

Landing on the carrier is bloody hard though, Top Gun is gonna be interesting, but it is shaping up nicely!

I've got my priorities right, 'Danger Zone' starts pumping as you engage the catapault!

No its coming along nicely...

You have the after party of Top Gun Graduation, in a small cutscene at the start, and then Maverick and Goose (Goose is alive because I'm using sounds from the movie) head out to the carrier.

First objective is to escort two C130s through a flight path that gets ambushed by Su25 fighter bombers. They then land and objective complete!

Then you head back to the carrier (optional rearmament) and receive new orders - fly air superiority for some A-10s as they investigate illegal fishing vessels. The whole scene gets gnarky and they lay waste to the surface vessels as maverick, goose, hollywood and merlin engage some more Su25's.

I'm spawning enemies as i go so the AI doesn't get trigger happy, but it's hard if i want to spawn addons (don't know there names) which is why I'm only able to createvehicle Su25's. But I'm rigging up some missiles for them so they don't try to chase you with their guns...gets too easy after awhile.

If you wan to get other vehicle class names, de-pbo the addon
And open up the config.cpp file
And it something like
Code: [Select]
Displayname="My Shiney New Plane";

And the class name is MyNewPlane :)
(Stuff like A10 in that code will chage, and there might be more/less lines etc)

Gd luck
Just about to watch that trailer/video thing :)
