USS Iowa BB-61

This addon brings the mighty USS Iowa in its post 1984 condition to Arma 3. At 270 metres long and weighing 45,000 tons the Iowa is one of the largest moving objects to be seen in Arma 3.

Known Issues:
- Passenger Positions are in the wrong place
- Internal views can see through the ship
- Characters standing on the ship stay in the same place in the world when the ship moves this is an Engine issue
- Behaviour in multiplayer is untested and collisions will probably be unreliable this is largely due to the ship being larger than what can be comfortably handled by the Engine
- Bullet collisions (Fire Geometry) may not work properly on some parts of the hull
- Characters can become a bit stuck on some of the stairs
- Detection for the entry points on the ladders is unreliable
- Setting an initial azimuth (turning the ship) when placing it in the editor WILL cause parts of the ship to become misaligned
- When calling in artillery gunfire particle effects are in the wrong place

Does this work with WMO?

This is cool. But nothing makes me angrier than the fact that you cannot turn the ship once it is down in the ditor. Does anyone know of any other WW2 navy ships that are not aircraft carriers? Iwould like to build a pearl harbor mission.

Do you think you could make her sister ships? ( USS New Jersey BB-62, USS Missouri BB-63, and USS Wisconsin BB-64)
