Vanilla planes & helicopters do work to a certain extent with the carrier, but in general they act bumpy and tend to get damaged when taxiing or landing on the carrier.

update please

Placing the ship in the Eden editor then starting the mission gives me little microbursts of lag every 3-5 seconds. The original Nimitz (non-experimental) version has this same issue but a little worse, with more severe lagbursts. What's causing this? I've used the non-experimental Nimitz mod for a few years and I don't ever recall having this issue.

Hey, the Firewill F-14 does not seem to catch on the arresting wires on landing, any idea why?

Hello, I really like your mod. Is there any way you could make a video on how to use the IFLOLS, please? I'm having trouble figuring out how to get it working.

Hey Me”o. Can I get a copy of your fix?

Whenever I place it down it says that the flightdeck is too high and some scripts may not work. The entire tailhook system isn't working anymore. Does anyone happen to know how to fix this?

Hi, can I upload a version of this mod to Steam (only) that'll be used only for my community?
Telling everyone to move the acecompact files would be a hassle and having a version with it already done would make it easier and appealing for all.
Obviously, all credits will still be yours. :)
