The most happening carrier deck since Digital Integration's 1999 Superhornet sim.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

The dev team have already cleared the Nimitz for release and the first test results are positive. The page will go live by Tuesday and barring something unforeseen, Nimitz Class Vol. 1 will be released this Friday, May 24th as well -Ike's crew already approves as can be seen in the photo.

They must be busy getting ready for the release... which explains my unanswered query about my prior purchase from 2017 not being added/updated on their new website.

Hi Beef

They are a small dev team and they are probably slower on the weekends.

They also have 2 updates and a new release this week also.

I am sure you will get a reply today. :)

SWS Nimitz - Dynamic deck configuration reveal video



About Nimitz Class Vol.1

Nimitz Class Vol. 1 allows you to immerse yourself in carrier ops, giving you the first two ships of the Nimitz class which are modelled in stunning detail. From the shooter launching you off the catapult to catching the 3-wire on a pitching deck, from walking through the hangar to arranging aircraft like a deck handler, the SWS Nimitz & Ike allow you to experience carrier ops with a level of immersion hitherto unavailable!


OVERVIEW

The next chapter in SWS’ carrier ops technology features two carriers of the Nimitz class modelled in stunning detail. SWS' CVN-68 USS Nimitz and CVN-69 USS Dwight D. Eisenhower are the most detailed carriers created to date for any simulator. Highlights include:

•   High quality models of CVN-68 (2017) and CVN-69 (2016)
•   Complete air wing for each carrier, which can be placed using the Deck Configuration Gauge
•   Fully animated carriers: raise the catapult bubbles, LSO platform and control the elevators and doors -or leave them to the AI
•   Animated arrestor cables
•   Animated catappult JBDs, shuttles and steam
•   AI MH-60R plane guard helicopter which launches and lands on deck
•   Automatic or manual control over nine separate ship lighting systems
•   Shore-based IFLOLS at NAS Key West and NAS Whidbey Island
  o   NAS Fallon
  o   NAS Key West
  o   NAS Kingsville
  o   NAS Lemoore
  o   NAS Meridian
  o   NAS Norfolk

•   Carriers Extended v2.0 features:

  o   Create any deck state you want using our Deck Configuration gauge
  o   Animated arrestor cables
  o   Realistic catapult launches
  o   IFLOLS & LRLS: realistic simulation of optical landing aids, including stabilisation and scaling
  o   Weather-based pitching & rolling decks, created using real data
  o   TACAN & ICLS
  o   PALS (Autoland) based on the real SPN-42A
  o   Custom SWS LSO
  o   Independently controlled ship lights


THE CARRIERS

Included in the package are the first two ships of the Nimitz Class, CVN-68 USS Nimitz and CVN-69 Dwight D. Eisenhower. We have implemented new modelling techniques to allow for meticulous intricacy without sacrificing performance.

Both ships feature a highly detailed flight deck. From the anti-skid texture to the crowded catwalks, from marking of water stations to the instructions on the life rafts, no detail has been spared. Furthermore, the carriers come with an accessible hangar deck that you can walk all the way back to the fantail.


THE TECHNOLOGY

The Nimitz class series will serve as the flagship of our Carriers Extended v2.0 technology. Be a pilot or manage the ship! Experience first-hand what CEX brings to the table.

Crowded deck!

Debuting on the Nimitz is our deck configuration technology. Allowing you to get in the shoes of a handler, place crew, vehicles and aircraft from any squadron, anywhere on the ship’s decks in real time, as well as save your custom deck states at will. Experience what it’s like to be a deck handler, trying to squeeze 70+ aircraft in the ship without fouling the decks.

The first carrier-based AI aircraft for P3D

In another first for SWS, an AI guard helicopter is included as a free bonus with the Nimitz!

launch the MH-60 plane guard and watch it take-off, fly out and orbit near the carrier on plane guard duty. After flight ops are finished, call the helicopter back and watch as it guides itself to land on one of the available helipads.

Get a taste of what's coming down the road!

AI ship management

An AI system handles the ship’s systems depending on whether it’s in the launch or recovery state. The AI also controls the ship’s lighting based on time-of-day and prevailing weather conditions.

Of course, you may take over control of the ship’s system at any time and handle things yourself!

Expandable animations

Crew are no longer statues and don't appear out of context! A robust system allows us to spawn animated objects on the ship according to the selected operational state. Shooters & LSOs are the first animated objects finding their way onto the carriers, with more coming as the technology evolves.

Of course, our tow truck system from USS Midway makes a reappearance for those that don’t fancy taxying and prefer to tow their aircraft in place.

Realistic NAVAIDs!

Expanding on our previous implementation of TACAN, CEX carriers now come equipped with an ILS system and SPN-41 ICLS and SPN-42 PALS (requires aircraft-side integration). Furthermore, accurate simulation of the visual landing aids such as IFLOLS and LRLS is now possible, accounting for ship motion and hook-to-eye corrections.

Our visual landing aids (IFLOLS and LRLS) are simulated with a fidelity second to none. The IFLOLS can be set for a glideslope of 3.5, 3.75, or 4.0 degrees, compensates for aircraft size (hook-to-eye) by rolling the light-box just like the real thing, and has three stabilization modes (point, line, and inertial) with realistic lag and limits. To top it off, MOVLAS at three separate stations will be added in service pack 1.

Nimitz installer uploading, manuals updating right now. Almost there.

Midway & Phantom patches will be released tomorrow evening to verify that the new FSX-P3Dv3 installers will work OK before releasing to the public.
