HMS Iron Duke is a Type 23 frigate of the Royal Navy, and the third ship to bear the name. Iron Duke was launched on 2 March 1991 by Lady King in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Wellington. Her affiliated town is Kingston upon Hull, and she is named after Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington (the "Iron Duke"). She was the fifth Duke-class Type 23 frigate to be launched for the Royal Navy, at a cost of £140 million.

The third ship in a series of enhanced AI Ships with a Weather responsive Roll/Pitch/Heave motion which is calibrated to the size of the vessel. You can also spawn on the Heli pad. Challenging rough sea landing can be simulated.



How to install:-

Unzip the package, you will find 2 folders:-

AI and Models.

Merge the AI folder with your FlightGear install/data/AI folder.

Merge the models folder with your FlightGear install/data/Models folder.

Run FG and you should have a scenario available called Type-45_Demo. This is the ship.

The Default start position for the ship is South West of EGOD. The ship will automatically respond to the current weather or any changes in the weather.



How to change its start position:-

In your Data/AI folder, edit the file HMS_IronDuke_demo.xml with a text editor.

Edit fhe following section:-

<latitude>52.762</latitude>

<longitude>-4.217119</longitude>

<speed>10</speed>

<heading>200</heading>

Save the file and it will start at the new location.



How to start on the ship:-

The AI Scenario must be set to run at the start.

You need to specify an Aircraft Carrier in your launcher + Parking position:-

Carrier:- F234

Parking:- Heli1

Start FG from an airfield within 100 miles of the ship and your start position should be the Heli pad.



Bugs:-

No ship lighting yet.

We need a way of securing the Helicopter to the deck yet.

Just regarding the discussion on TS:

tested on 2017.1.2 on macOS Sierra, get errors loading dds textures, can't see the bow wave/noise etc around the ship, otherwise fine including movement

tested on 2017.1.2 on Ubuntu 16.10 with PPA, no errors, no crashes - graphics is Intel HD4000 (Ivy Bridge) - warns about dds textures, but loads them

I tried yesterday with Windows 10 and 2017.2.0 and didn't see those problems. I do have a MacBook Pro as well so I can have a look if 2017.2.0 would work any better on that...

Yup, been jaunting out to work on the AR, big black square.
Incidentally, have new deck texture in cloud for testing. In AI/Ark_Royal-R07/data/Models/Geometry/ar07/
Hard to test - requires a flight out to it every time and only sections viewed at a time to get a look at the deck. FOV is maxed at 120. Crazy.

Fixed the ambient values in the model .ac ,
in ALS she's not really dark grey.



The bow wave texture is the square bit to me, but it may be FG 2.3

Thanks!

Still a WIP, but it's looking good so far...

Deck V2 up in cloud, same location. Tried to give it a little more texturizing and resized a bit, couple of corrections and detail. Trying to figure out the island next.

I can't seem to be able to even spawn on a ship in Mac OS X. I find myself in water where the helipad is supposed to be and the ship runs over me and continues on it's way while I'm sitting in the water.

It must be loading your chopper before the ship.

By the way, Stuart, I am able to run multiple instances of all the ships again now that others have left the MP environment. I'm not sure and would stop short of making an accusation *but* I pretty sure one of the MP participants that were present yesterday were responsible for the repeated crashing willingly or unknowingly...once that aircraft left the MP Environment I had zero issues running any MP Ships and landing on them in multiple instances.

Except for the stuff we learned like trying to run two MP Carriers of the same name.
