Saw what you were using as your black box and thought this texture might be of use. When wrapped the "Black Box" is on the top of the model which shows as the face in the parts list. and is the correct way up. as a png of course.

Will it support JNSQ?

I'm building it to be modular. So the location points I'm plugging in for KSR could be easily substituted for JNSQ locations.

It might be a little "too ambitious" for it to be a single mod, but it could definitely be a JNSQ follow on mod as I did with the aircraft pack. And... JNSQ has has some really nice harbour statics under development. :happy:

I enjoy the irony of the black box being orange :happy:

Yes. I always thought so myself. But in the real world the "Black Box" is bright orange so that it can be found when a plane's debris is spread over a large area.

For some reason, I decided to add to this in my spare time, so here's the result:

Sorry to intrude on this thread, I might download this mod when it's released (and when SunkWorks boat parts are released too)

Wow. does that wrap properly? I had to put markers on the original and follow the clues to find where and which way up to put my writing.

It should,

I imported the model into Blender and applied the texture, it looks OK:

(viewport rendering was set to Diffuse Color, so no specularity or directional lighting here)

But I haven't tested it ingame yet

I wish I could do that. I only just installed the latest Blender, but the .mu plugin doesn't seem to work in it and I haven't worked out to how to get an older version yet.

Your model is excellent. @Caerfinon. feel very free to use @OrdinaryKerman's texture instead.

This looks like fun - I've never tried underwater exploration - although recently I had a very small science cube sat land at sea - it sank to 512m deep before I could succesfully recover it and I got awarded a "500m Underwater Reached" award or something similar. Unintended bonus!

Took me a little research to work out that the submarine pictured in the original post is the "Otter Submersible", which is now in a combination USI Exploration pack:

Noticed this isn't in the list of recommended mods though - might want to add that too!

Thought: one of the contracts has to be "Find the Sea Kraken" - supposedly there's a location 1300m deep - I'd imagine it'd live there, in a large sea shell.

"Otter Submersible"

The Otter is one of my favourite subs and I recommend all the USI mods. The mod recommendation list is a WIP and after rethinking a few things I may remove the KSRGAP mod (mine) as it doesn't contribute substantially to underwater game play. The other mods add harbours, underwater anomalies, and two separate methods of maneuvering underwater. The otter may make the final cut.

In his house at Ker'lyeh dead Kerthulhu waits dreaming... (But no spoilers)
