RED WINGS OVER DHIMAR

 

Campaign mod for SFG

 

by Baltika

 

********************************************************************

 

 

 

This is a very simple .ini edit to enable Red-flyable squadrons in the stock Burning Sands campaign for SFG. It is tested only in SFG with the Oct 2008b patch, although it should probably work fine in SFP1 as well, and the level of patch should not really be an issue. It WILL NOT work in WoV/WoE/WoI unless you have the stock desert terrain installed to those games, so be warned.

 

Of course, I spent a day putting this together and then found the old Red Wings campaign lurking on a back-up of my old SFP1 mods. I can't remember where this was d/led from, and it certainly doesn't seem to be available now (maybe at avsim?).

 

Anyway, the art of making Red-side flyable campaigns seems to have fallen by the wayside, so it's probably no bad thing that this version be uploaded for all to use. The campaign files will not write over the stock Burning Sands campaign, so don't worry if you have a modded stock campaign, eg with vinman's Burning Sands upgrades.

 

This is a back-to basics mod.

 

I run it on

 

Stock SFG

Patched to October 2008b

 

No weapons packs or anything else. If you have Bunyap's pack installed, you may beed to edit the supply entries for each flyable air unit (in the campaign_data.ini) to get the correct weapons to show up.

 

You will need to make the stock MiGs flyable - but if you are d/ling this campaign, you've already done that, right ;-)

 

If not, you will need to install these pits:-

I STRONGLY ADVISE that you DO NOT use the modded aircraft_DATA.inis supplied with some of these pits - they do not incorporate all the FM and AI tweaks to the stock FMs included with the new patch, so you will be busting your MiG down to a previous version if you do.

 

Also, I have not included hangar screens or loading screens for the MiGs, but there are such things available if you want to add them in.

 

I have set up the d/l package so it should be obvious where everything has to go. I have included a new mainscreen and title music, and Badger's Red-side Pilot Record Screen which is definitely Red-side orientated, so do not install the items in the SFG/Menu folder if you want to keep your existing mainscreen and title music.

 

For that full-on Soviet experince, you may want to go the whole hog and install one of the Soviet comms mods available at CA.

 

Any questions, give me shout on combatace.

 

Cheers,

 

Baltika
