Upgrade/Update for Lybia Terrain -- For Use With Polak's New Desert Tiles =ONLY=
This is mostly a 'fix' of the targets, types, and movements inis.
I've peaked and tweeked the targets, mostly to try to remove of 'floating' objects in the Gulf of Sidra, and to add more things for everyone to blow up. I've added the Factory Place, Truck Depot, a Patrol Boat (stock object, but I'm including all the extracted parts anyway), a Lybian flag to wave in the breeze, and a few other things that'll be surprises.
It should be noted, the water mod is NOT included in this pak...the oceans are just plain water, no wave action. This is fixed by the use of Polak's New Desert Tile Set, which includes modified water tgas. This package was designed for using JUST Polak's Desert tiles, so you'll have to go and get them from the CombatAce SF/WoV/WoE Terrain downloads section. The data ini included with this set is already set up for use with his tiles, and the water effects are activated. Vista users should read the note section below, as they are a 'special' case.
This has been tested in SF & WoE; It should also work in WoV, but I've not tested it in there.
There is, for some reason, a bit of strangness with the Anti-Ship missions. You seem be get given target areas that are NOT listed, far off from the routes I've defined in the movements ini. Also, there is NO provision for CAS missions, as this was originally set up for air strikes, recon, sweeps, etc. SO DON'T TRY ANY CAS MISSIONS - I'm not sure what would happen; you just might be sitting in the cockpit, and get a 'mission accomplished' or it may crash. Don't know.
If anyone is so inclined, and wants to build a 'fix' for the shipping routes, please do so, and post it so all and sundry can have it!
I've also fiddled with target area placements to give some kind of a front line, right across the Gulf.
There are further, highly detailed instructions, especially for Vista users, in the enclosed readme -- so for your own sake, read the cursed thing!!!!
