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.

*addition to last* I actually did discover that it is multiple sections of the ship both at the flight deck and below decks as well.

I have tested the carrier on Stratis, Altis, and Isla Duala. Fresh placement in editor, and i have also tested it with no assets, automatically placed assets, and manually placed assets.

The carrier height issue was taken into account and adjusted for during placement, and no other part of the carrier seems affected, so i dont believe it is a terrain height issue. Its always the same two portions of the carrier that are affected; The better portion of starboard bow from the #1 catapult back to the point, and the portside aft section from the #4 elevator back to the fantail.

The assets placed on the flight deck will kinda just hang there where the level of the flight deck should be, but if you walk on it the dude just falls down about 1-3 meters

I have nothing on the carrier except for an ambiance module, how do I get it so that the automatic flight operations actually launches other types of FA18s besides the blank/tanker presets?

How does the automatic carrier operations work and why does it require mods that aren't mentioned on the workshop page?

@Blitz, this should only happen on an old version. not the current one. Can you try to update?
@Maestroshake, you must not change the height of the carrier when moving it, otherwise the error will remind you. Some of the scripts are hardcoded with the deck at 17.5 meters roughly.
@Limousin, @Maestroshake, can you share a mission where the problem happens? Is it only on Isla Duala or are other maps affected as well?

@Maestroshake I have the same problem on the map isla duala

I am also having an issue with parts of the carrier appearing sunk. I have troubleshooted by removing and replacing the carrier with fresh assets, but the same portion of the starboard bow still clips into the rest of the ship, rendering the flight deck unusable. I also see a frequent error pop up where any time i move the carrier it spams the error field on the editor and says the flight deck is either too high or too low.

I got an error upon landing with the tailhook in the Black Wasp, as well as Firewill's F-14.

Line 126 of "ttt_nimitzfunctions\fn_arrest\fn_usetailhook.sqf"\
"{_plane getvariable "nimitztailhook"} |#|or _despawn) exitwith();"
"Error or: type object, expected bool,code"
is what A3 spat out at me, don't know what needs to be fixed, if anything, but, I hope it's fixed soon if possible. :selike:

@silver, best to place the Nimitz afresh, then inspect it for those problems. I'm not aware of a smart/programmatic approach to the problem right now.

Having an issue on a dedicated server with the nimitz where the parts of the flight deck are empty, or sunk in. having it on the bow and stern on the carrier. Any fixes? could it be modules? or too many mods?
