This is volume 2 of aircraft carrierness.
For newcomers these are a bunch of static aircraft carriers, or carrier groups, that are operational airports spread across the world. Since they're airports you can start from them and locate them.
You need version 3.7 of this - https://flightsim.to/file/4930/aircraft-carrier-uss-msfs-uk-mooring to use as a library.
If you don't have any version of this other file you will see nothing but grey lumps and a few floating lights everywhere.
Why a separate upload? I couldn't figure out how to add more airports to the other one. By the time I did I'd done too much work to integrate it into the old version. It'll also be easier to keep track of updates with this a separate file.
Google map here Aircraft Carrier Group Locations The newest locations are at the bottom of the side bar.
Volume 2 locations are yellow. Blue is the original file.
There's a txt file inside the download with the same coordinates and descriptions.
If you didn't obtain it from the main file description, then this freeware program gives you catapult and arrestor functions - https://msfs.touching.cloud/mods/cloud-assistant/
This mod also by TouchingCloud will give the F/A-18 its own carrier functionality which means you don't need to run a separate app - https://flightsim.to/file/23760/f-a-18-super-warrior
Also the Indiafoxtecho T45 has this too now so worth a try if you have it.
As with the other version, runway 10, which is present at most modern locations, is always a helipad on a ship to start on. All ships with helipads are landable.
There are two different versions. The second download does not star the airports if you don't want a map filled with them.
You need to turn off crashes and turn off takeoff and landing assistance.
This has many new locations across the world. It has the same flaws as the other file of course.
I'm certainly looking forward to the Top Gun addon but not even Xenu will offer you this much choice.
I decided to make more of a virtue of being able to place an airport anywhere, so in addition to crowdpleasers like a US carrier near Naval Air Stations, there are locations such as Point Nemo, the furthest point from land on Earth for unusualtons who enjoy flying for hours over the sea, to the Kerguelen Islands and it was also time to install a HMS Prince of Wales in the depths of the Grand Canyon.
I've also added more World War Two themes at various locations. I gave up trying to figure out the exact locations for carriers at events like the Battle of Midway and put them in more accessible places. If you know stuff like this then please inform me.
The WW2 centrepiece is ACOK Scapa Flow so that's where I'd go first if that's your thing.
Enter 'WW2' in the search box on the flight planning screen and all these locations will appear.
Is largely about two new aircraft.
The obvious one is the F/A-18. The other is the F-35 by Indiafoxtecho that should be coming out in a couple of weeks.
There are two carriers off Patrick Space Force Base in Florida - ACF1 and ACF2. One 100 or so miles west of Miramar - ACF3.
For the F35 there are HMS Queen Elizabi off Cornwall and Norfolk UK - ACQ1 and ACQ2.
For the Japanese there's an Izumo off Nyutabaru base - ACJ1.
Italians get a Cavour off Amendola air base - ACI1.
Marines get a USS Wasp and LPD to helicopter from off MCAS Beaufort South Carolina - ACM1 and off MCAS Iwakuni in Japan - ACM2
