HPW's Halberstadts for AI Weight Mod
For Use with BHaH HITR Full Campaign and QC Battle Modes
by Herr Prop Wasche and 33Lima
INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: Important! This mod is ONLY
intended to be used 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!
To install, simply open the archive and extract the HPW Halberstadts for AI Weight
Mod folder to the MODS folder created inside your CFSWW1 Over Flanders Fields folder when you installed JSGME into OFF.
In order to activate the mod, simply start JSGME and first
confirm that 33Lima's AI Empty Weight Mod has already been activated
(33Lima's mod will already be listed as activated in the JSGME right
window). Next, highlight the HPW Halberstadts AI Weight Mod and click the top
button. Because this mod will overwrite some of the files in the AI Empty
Weight Mod, JSGME will open a message box warning you that "Enabling this
mod 'may' have adverse effects on your game," and asking if you "Are sure
you wish to enable this mod?" This is normal. Click okay and the mod
will become activated. Later, if you decide to deactivate any of my FM mods or
33Lima's weight mod, simply deactivate the mods in reverse order. Enjoy
the mod and 33Lima's AI Empty Weight Mod!
Important note: As in previous versions of my FM mod,
and any other mod which modifies any of OFF's .cfg files, using this
mod will result in the user not being able to see any of the ace
skins, either those already included in the game or that the user has
created on his own or downloaded for use with HITR. Fortunately, a
workaround for this problem has been identified by Panama Red. Basically,
in order to use this mod and also to see all of the ace skins
available in the game, first activate the FM mod and start the game.
Begin your campaign as usual, but instead of flying your mission, click
on end mission as soon as you find yourself on the field. Exit completely
out of the game and then restart your campaign. Then, on the
campaign screen, click "Replay Mission." This will take you back to the
beginning of your mission but with the advantage of allowing you to see
all of the fantastic skins which have been lovingly created by members
of the OBD team and by many others for use with this wonderful simulation
of WWI aerial combat. OBD has already assured us that this problem has
been eliminated in the next version of Over Flanders Fields. Huzzah!
DESCRIPTION OF MOD: This mod revises the FM of the Halberstadt DII and
changes the empty weight settings for both the human controlled and AI
controlled aircraft so that Halbs will not crash into trees at the end of certain
runways when using Lima's Empty Weight mod. The FM changes are generally
small, but you should notice that the Halb is no longer quite as nose heavy and
is now 2 or 3 mph faster at sea level than in the official OFF version.
