About This File
This terrain is Starys Water-Only terrain, adjusted to be a Carrier duelling ground. It has two Carrier Stations and a few
waypoints, as well as movement data to attack Convoys. There is no interference by ground based aircraft whatsoever, both Carriers
has to rely on what they have available on their decks and is thus perfect for single missions. The Terrain can however also
be used for Sea-Based Campaigns.
Simply unzip into the Mod Folder of your choice.
This Terrain requires Strike Fighters 2: North Atlantic
This Terrain may require some management of your Ground Objects. The key to this Terrain is the Ocean_NATIONS.INI. This needs to be adjusted to create the scenario you wish.
As of right now, it is set to USN vs Soviet. It is imperative that you choose a year where both nations have a Carrier; regardless of the nations chosen. Do note that
it does not have to be a Red vs Blue Scenario. Brazilian Navy vs Indian Navy, Indian Navy vs US Navy, Soviet Navy vs Brazilian Navy and onwards are all fun combinations
in their own way. Not to mention the classic "Argentine Navy vs Royal Navy" ;-)
To spawn a Carrier Group, there needs to be a Carrier and Escorts. Make sure the Carrier can house the intended aircraft!
There are a few issues that may arise with this terrain, and all of them are based on your Ground Objects:
My Nations/Enemy Carrier is not spawning:
Check that you added the correct nation in the Nations.ini
Check that the Carrier can carry the size of your aircraft (Some carriers can only house "Small" Aircraft and will not spawn if you chosen a "Medium" aircraft)
Make sure the Carrier has a Name List.
My Carrier has no Escorts:
Make sure you have nation-appropriate Escorts. Escorts are ships designated as Crusiers, Destroyers and Frigates. This is done in the vessels Data file (WarshipClass=FRIGATE)
For some nations, you can download Escorts but for others, you need to edit them for the nation you wish to use.
Recommended Mods for use with this Terrain:
Recommend you look in the Add-On Ships Section for anything else you may need. Paulopanz has also uploaded several Airplane + Carrier Packages that are worth checking out.
