Want to fly your bomb laden P-47 off a carrier? Well, now you can.

In the mission file, find the ship. In this case, its 0_chief.

By changing the last value, you can alter the ships speed to whatever you want.

0_Chief Ships.USSLexingtonCV2 1 0 2 9.0
12204.17 20853.93 333.00 0 2 17.61944580078125
12122.01 38934.14 333.00

In this case, the value is 17.6, which is equivalent to 63km/h. Changing this value to 100 would make the carrier go 357km/h.

It is the next best thing to a working catapult.

Note that if you open the mission again in FMB, the speed will automatically be reset to the maximum.

I'd like to see a track of someone trying to land on TAHT!

I tried this with a Japanese cruiser ( DD3 ? ) in a FMB I use for bomb/torp practice, compared to the other ships ( submerged sub and a liquid cargo ship) it bolted off rather fast, but it did seem to stop after about 15 mins ( ran out of fuel ? )

Would this work with Carriers in a DF mission ?

DF carriers have to be stationary ships, so no.
