UPDATE - v1.0 Ready! - Upgrade WOV Ground War Enhancement to SF2:V...

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to know if/how much interest there is in upgrading the WOV Ground War Enhancement to SF2:V compatibility. Is there any interest in an upgraded version?

 

The upgrade would entail:

- Using SF2:V aircraft naming convention (different versions of aircraft depending on the year).

- Utilizing a 3rd party A-6A

- Making sure all the ground objects are SF2 compatible

- Using the stock A-1's and including some loadout updates (and hopefully wrech's pit)

 

I don't have SF2:V yet, but if there is enough interest, I'll make sure this is on my list of things to do when I get it. Or, if anyone with SF2:V wants to help me get a head start with making some of the changes, that would be great as well!

 

Lastly, if I do upgrade, I'm thinking of making it more of a NF type of add on. Ideally, it could be one download to get terrain, environment, weapons, aircraft, and upgraded campaigns for SF2:V. We have NF for WOE/SF2:E as an essentail add-on, but there is no free equivalent for WOV/SF2:V. Of course, I'm not going to claim for a second that I could produce anything like NF with regards to comprehensiveness and accuracy, but I think it would be a good starting point for any SF2:V installation. Maybe even coordinate with KillerBee and make it sort of a base pack for the mission pack project he's heading up...

 

Would there be any interest in this? It's a lot of work if only a few are interested, so please let me know. Also, anyone interested in helping out?

Gets my vote. Your Ground War enhancement really made WoV for me, so I say go for it :yes:

Alright,

 

Sounds like there's interest. Any suggestions for the "NF" style mod that I didn't already mention above?

Yeah definitely interested in this Malibu, the one for the classic series was a must-install IMHO :)

So I still don't have SF2:V. It'll be a couple weeks until I do, at the least, I think.

 

I'll post some updates in this thread whenever there are any. :good:

OK, so a couple weeks was a little bit of an over estimate... :biggrin:

 

Beta is uploaded an awaiting approval...

Check it out and post any feedback here or in the file announcement thread!

 

PS - If you get any good screenshots, post 'em here, and I'll use them to create a better looking image for the download. Also "Strike Fighters 2 Vietnam All-In-One Mod" is probably the worst name ever. If anyone has suggestions for a better name for the mod, let me know!

OK, the first fixes for those with the beta:

 

Open the loadout.ini file for the F-4J, find the ATTACK section, and make the bold addition below:

 

[Attack]

Loadout[01].WeaponType=BLU-1

Loadout[01].Quantity=1

Loadout[02].WeaponType=BLU-1

Loadout[02].Quantity=1

Loadout[03].WeaponType=CBU-24B

Loadout[03].Quantity=3

Loadout[03].RackType=TER

Loadout[04].WeaponType=CBU-24B

Loadout[04].Quantity=3

Loadout[04].RackType=TER

Loadout[05].WeaponType=Tank600_F4

Loadout[05].Quantity=1

Loadout[06].WeaponType=AIM-7E-2

Loadout[06].Quantity=1

Loadout[07].WeaponType=AIM-7E-2

Loadout[07].Quantity=1

Loadout[08].WeaponType=AIM-7E-2

Loadout[08].Quantity=1

Loadout[09].WeaponType=AIM-7E-2

Loadout[09].Quantity=1

Loadout[10].WeaponType=AIM-9H

Loadout[10].Quantity=1

Loadout[11].WeaponType=AIM-9H

Loadout[11].Quantity=1

Loadout[12].WeaponType=AIM-9H

Loadout[12].Quantity=1

Loadout[13].WeaponType=AIM-9H

Loadout[13].Quantity=1

 

Also, Wrench's A-1 cockpit folders didn't make it into the .rar. So please download them from the cockpits section here at CA, and drop them in your A-1H and A-1J folders! Gotta fly them skyraiders...

 

Thanks to porterjr for pointing these out.

Hi malibu43

 

Brilliant mod really enjoying Steel Tiger thanks a lot for all the work. :good:

 

One little idea I had, that I will try later, was changing the weapons system target type for the NVA and VC squads from Ground to Air and Ground. This should stop me flying so low and straight. :biggrin:

 

Cheers

Go for it! Let me know if it works.

 

I want to say I tried it before, but I really don't remember...

OK, so the beta's been out for a bit, and I've only gotten some minor feedback so far.

 

What I'd like to know is if there is anything that could be added that would either:

 

a) enhance the experience for those that downloaded it, or

b) convince those that didn't download to give it a try!

 

I'm talking about things like additional aircraft or units, ground objects, campaign tweaks, environmental mods, etc...

 

I am planning on adding the F-105F/G once that's SF2 ready, but other than that, I don't really have any additional major changes planned.

 

Any feedback would be great! Thanks!

Also, I really need a better name. I was thinking "Comprehensive SF2V Upgrade Pack", but that's still not as good as Nato Fighters or Yankee Air Pirate. I know we can do better...

Wow! I really really can't wait for this 1! I always wanted to do some CAS & ground pounding in South Vietnam! Thanks to all those taking part in this creation!

 

Sidenote:The last screenie of the A-1 with the toilet strapped to it is also in Osprey's US Navy A-1 Skyraider Units of the Vietnam War. I just picked it up and saw that picture.

 

Great work!
