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.

Just gotta say, the length of this carrier is the same exact size (333 meters) like the real life. It really is 1:1 scale.

Was just curious because the Vanilla aircraft carrier (USS Freedom) was 10-15% bigger, and they should be almost the same exact size because the Ford class is only 4 meters longer, but it ended up to be 377 meters long.

This mod have my respect for its sharp details and functions.

There's some kind of script errors with this AND beta version. 1 about the loop script I think, and trying to land ITC F-181 doesn't catch the wire - maybe needs to be done manually? I'm pretty sure I didn't miss twice.
2nd, something makes editor placed E and F hornets have a buddy pod on the center line no matter what's selected (tank or FIR pod for commanding missiles). The only ones that don't have buddy pods on the centerline are the ones that...wait for it...have the buddy pod selected. Maybe Super Hornet Beta error?
Another SUPER ANNOYING one is constant spamming of AIM-9X not found. I think it's the deprecated missile from the Super Hornet Pack, but I don't know if it's related to Super Hornet pack or a Nimitz object. It pops up in the editor, starting a mission, ending a mission and going back into the editor, starting again, etc. And it's one you have to click to go away.
IDK what changed, but thanks in advance.

@Pumas340 search in yellow properties for Nimitz and set the Nimitz aligner first for changing direction.
@Ryan that's strange, do you use any framework like exile that may block the remoteExec part? If so, you need to explicitly allow the actions.

question, the ship is working very well in solo, but in MP i dont have access to the catapul action for the plane ? any idea to fix that ?

@Marie, I just spawned two Nimitz in Zeus and they worked okish, one lost an Anti Air asset in the pond, the other spawned nicely. Not sure what the problem you face is, maybe you can record a video or describe it in other words?

@Barrongo, will fix the F-14 placement in the experimental build next weekend. The problem were the wings unfolded (fixed via a check for the classname) and that the space in the fore of the carrier is not sufficient for the F-14, even with wings swept. Not sure when this fix will make it to this release here though.

@TeTeTe3 okay thank you ㅠ.ㅠ

@Marie, will look into Zeus as well, but have little hope for a fix.

@TeTeTe3 I really appreciate the reply and information, I will be in my best patience to wait for the patch, Take your time and I hope your having fun improving & developing the mod.
