So my technical woes continue. Random lockups, CTDs, BSOD, audio and video glitches noises and general witchcraft and vodoo are common now so some of the larger projects are being dramatically slowed since I cant get to my Storage array. Apologies to those wanting Part 3 of the Tut or the incredibly long over due and much promised Tornado update but they are all on my main workstation which is currently un-servicable.
Recently, WLD427 and I have been discussing common areas of interest for ArmA3. WLD427 has some areas of PRACS he would like to modernise for both ArmA2 and eventually ArmA3 and I have some things I would like to use for IAP and ArmA3. So I've dragged out my old laptop and I've been adding to the IAP library and my own Portfolio of models. Right now Eddie is doing the research and I'm cherry picking from his wishlist. This has led to some interesting possibilities, mostly Naval this week though.
I've come across a few ships and watercraft that I would like to include in IAP and WLD427 would like to co-opt for PRACS. Quite a few of them seem to share common weapon systems and equipment so while I cant access my projects drive I've been gainfully employed making common parts.
Mk49 GMLS and RIM-116
The plan is to build up a library of these common component to fit to future RKSL, IAP and Partner projects. This week's out put is a Mk 49 Guided Missile Launching System (GMLS) for the RIM-116 missile system.
Phalanx CIWS and SeaGnat are next.
Its currently used by Egypt which is an ASA (OPFOR) nation within the IAP-verse so will see use in a number of their ships etc. I've also given the model show above to WLD427 for use in PRACS so it might be worth keeping an eye on the PRACS website too.
Thats all I have this week. I'm going swap out my motherboard tomorrow with a borrowed one to see if I can resolve the problem so hopefully next we'll be back on plan.
