Thanks Dave.

 

If you guys haven't tried the single missions made by comrpnt, you really need to. There are many new ones added with this patch.

 

Also note, campaigns you're currently flying won't continue to behave after this patch. You'll need to start them over.

 

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

*** Object Fixes & Upgrades

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

 

- Fixed RF-4C AB emitter issue

 

- Fixed deploy/retract problem with Su-17 wings

 

- Added some missing destroyed .lod's for some groundobjects

 

- Updated all F-111's to the current standard, and added the wingtip

vortex emitters

 

- Fixed F-111 fuel tank data

 

- Added bobrock's new Tornado F3, updated FM and ODS specific skin

 

- Created a CF-18 with littlesmoke's skins

 

- Added Veltro's and lindr's Su-24MK

- Slight F-15C cockpit repaint by Brain32

 

- Tweaked A-10A and OA-10A flight model

will drop on targets

 

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

in a more historical time frame. Recommend that you play with

- Increased store amounts to make sure they last through the campaign

 

- Fixed a typo that was keeping the A-4F from showing up

in the campaign

Posts, to help keep them from being assigned as targets

during the campaign

- Added two squadrons of Canadian CF-18's

 

- Added one RAF squadron of Tornado F3's

I did, and it was incredible how quick the headaches went away, but it only lasted about 12 hours before they came back.

No issues at all.Found it nice to wait my turn for take off on the FAC mission.There were 8 A-10A's in front of me.Give me time to look around and discover the sites and sounds of Desert Storm.This should've been boxed up and sold.On the other hand,glad all of you didn't on a selfish thought.

I absolutely agree on the "waiting to takeoff" thing.

 

it's damn nice to look at those aircrafts. For an exeample, at the E-8C that lands on the first FAC mission on the OV-10A

Looks great!

Saddly, my comp starts to show its age and is barely able to run ODS. I guess I'll have to wait for a new one to fully enjoy that awesome mod.

anyone else finding that theyre being awarded medals without really doing much?

I started a new career and got the MOH on my first mission and the Silver Star on my second. Everythings set to hard so it seems kind of strange.

PS. I dont want anyone thinking I'm complaining, as its fairly trivial, just wondering if its happening to anyone else.

I have not seen it. We didn't do anything to intentionally change the requirements for receiving medals.

 

I'm not sure what the game looks at for giving out medals. My guess would the sum of points for the targets destroyed, as defined in the terrain's _types.ini.

 

If it keeps repeating, post some of your mission results, i.e. how many targets were destroyed and what type, etc.

what campaign/mission did u fly? what mods do u have? I had a similiar experience only recieving medal of honor on 1st mission,but no medals on second mission after more tgt kills than first!(btw...i'm flyin' on ODS and NATO1,2,3,4)...Maybe you just rocked the enemy beyond the call to rtb?.....I think u should just accept and go on!
