Features For The Battleships Of The Iowa Class from Gart Shetter (requires IOWACLASSBATTLESHIP.ZIP). These American warships had a very long career from WWII until the end of the 20th century. Options: photorealistical quadruple AA-guns and remote fire control which can be rotated for 360 degrees. Photorealistical bridge and foredeck. Included are sounds, special effects and modified camera views for the huge ship. Bitmaps, configuration for all the views, sounds and effects from Erwin Welker.

Features For The Battleships Of The Iowa Class.

1. Install the Iowa class battleship first.
2. Keep the original panel. Copy and overwrite it with my panel.
3. Backup the original sound and copy my sound into the folder of your Iowa class battleship.
4. Backup the aircraft.cfg first, then copy my aircraft.cfg into your Iowa class battleship.
5. Copy Effects, Sound and Gauges into the mainfolder of FSX

(Enjoy my new features)

How to display the bridge, the AA-guns or the fire control gunsight?

1. toggle with S-key to the aircraft-views to display the special views. Allways read the infotext or the instructions in the upper right corner.
2. toggle with A-key until you read : "AA-gun above turret B_Shift 9-rotate 360°"
-- do that and you will insert the AA-gun. Now you can rotate the gun for 360° by using the coolie hat of your joystick
3. toggle with A-key to get the other views and gun-positions


In the panel view mode you will get all sounds
I-key = 16" cannon
Shift E = 2cm AA-gun
G = 4cm AA-gun
F8-F5 = Battlealarm
ZZ = Horn

In the aircraft view mode you can't hear the horn, but the other sounds, but they are very low. Sorry!
To hear the AA-gun I recommend to turn off the engines.


Attention !!! : The sound switches (gauge00=switch13_O!switch,904,305,30,17, antiair.wav[100] might probably cause a hang up of the Flightsimulator, after changing from your battleship to another aircraft, caused by this buttons, which activates the special sounds. After restarting the flightsimulator everthing works fine again.
If it disturbes you, then don't hesitate and delete all those lines or better disable it by setting 2 slashes ahead of the line.

Example: //gauge00=switch13_O!switch,538,493,15,9, antiair.wav[100]


Many thanks to Gart Shetter, who made this detailed huge ship.
A great job was done by R.L. Clark, with his sound buttons and sound effects. Many thanks to him.
Many thanks to all of the other creative persons, who do such a great work.
I am sorry, but I do not know from whom all the gauges, effects and sounds are. I have to many.
