HPW Full Campaign Damage Model for OFF BHaH HITR
by Herr Prop Wasche
Zip file contents:
HPWDMv2.5\aircraft folder with 477 individual aircraft folders, .xdp files and .bdp files (Fortiesboy, you were right!)
INSTALLATION: Important! This version of the damage mod is intended to be used only in conjunction with Jonesoft's Generic Mod Enabler and should not be installed UNLESS JSGME has already been installed into your CFSWW1 Over Flanders Fields game folder. With JSGME, installation and use of this, or any mod, is very easy. Simply extract the contents of the HPWDMv2.5 zip file into the MODS folder which is created when you install JSGME into OFF. The mod is correctly installed if you see the readme.txt and the following folder structure inside the MODS folder: HPWDMv2.5\aircraft\Alb_DIII_AC1, etc. To load the mod, simply run JSGME, highlight the mod you wish to use, click on the top button, and then start your game. That's it!
NOTE: This mod is intended to be used in QC battles AND the main campaign.
2.5 Major fix and revision! All HPW damage model users are urged to upgrade to this version!
--Fix: Discovered and corrected major error introduced in v2.1 which prevented player pilot from being injured or dying even when "Dead is Dead" pilot outcome option was selected in Workshop. All three outcomes should now work as designed.
--Fix: Corrected error which prevented damage model mod from being applied to Nieuport 11's.
--Hit points for horizontal stabilizers increased slightly to lower chances of "tail-first slides" at low altitude for some aircraft. Note: This problem may also be partly an FM issue and cannot be fully fixed by changes to the damage model.
--Hit points for all control cables increased slightly in all aircraft.
--Important new feature: aircraft .bdp file associated with each matching aircraft .xdp file now included in mod. This has two major effects: game load times are no longer slowed the first time after the mod is applied, AND the original HITR .bdp files will be restored if the mod is disabled or removed. Previous versions of the damage model failed to restore the correct .bdp files, possibly causing certain game anomalies if the mod was disabled.
