What I mean has anyone found a map with a good sweet spot and marked off an accurate carrier length with fires or something to practice???

Like a dummy I had this great idea that I tried and it failed. I took a nice section of the bridge and put this up against the small atol in the pacific map, with the ramped section of the bridge touching the atol. Of course all map objects explode your planes on direct contact, including bridges http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Well it looks real cool at least and I used it for approach landing tests and it feels carrrier like, just dont land on it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

So if someone created a map that they are willing to share that would be cool-e-o

heres what ive been doing. set up a map with lots of water. ive used the online island map. not the one with the palms but the one with the huge airbases and the scattered islands throughout. the place a large ship tirpitz worked for me. place it on the corner of the map and set its next waypoint on the other corner. run it as close to shore as possible but keep it moving straight. then along side of ships path place campfield fires at every grid juction parallel to the ships path, keep it close enough that it looks like you will almost hit the ship if you fly down this line.
this is your flight path. now load up the zero and practice bringing your plane in right over this dotted line, useing the ship as a refrence point. drop gear and landing flaps and fly your self to the level of the deck of the ship. when you are satisfied with you aproach throttle up fly around and try it agian. you cant really land on the ship. but you can practice hitting a moving target.
i have a mission with this set up but dont know how to post it.

We've got one for Iron Skies Malta that's to scale with the Illustrious. You have to catch a bit of the shoreline that works as the cable.

I'd upload it or a pic but I don't see how to do that on this forum.

Why dont you just use a normal airstrip, put fires to make the right size of the carrier deck and practise with it? record the track, then use the non-cockpit non-crosshairs view to see how you did.

O, how I want to hold you,
To feel your breath
And hear your laughter in my ears.
To look into your eyes
And see myself in there.
Caress you with my lips.
To hold your hands in mine
And find the hidden smile in your dimple
That makes you irresistible
And stops the breathing in my chest.
To be with you when you are weeping,
To wipe away the tears and take away the sorrow.
To watch you while you are sleeping
Like there is no tomorrow.

And with a tender kiss to wake you up.
