Help adding an extra aircraft to NATO fighters 4 1986 campaign

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I have NATO fighters 4 installed and am trying to add my RNZAF A-4K_Kahu to the NATO fighters 4 1986 Red Storm campaign. I have made the following INI edits:

 

In SQUADRONLIST.INI

 

[squadron305] <<<<<<added the following on to the list of squadrons.

 

Name=75sqn

 

DisplayName=No. 75 Squadron

 

Nation=NewZealand

 

 

In campaigne4.ini

 

[CampaignData]

 

CampaignName=861019 Red Storm

 

DataFile=campaigne4_data.ini

 

CampaignMap=GermanyCE

 

Service001=USAF

 

Service002=RAF

 

Service003=WGermany

 

Service004=Belgium

 

Service005=Canada

 

Service006=Denmark

 

Service007=Netherlands

 

Service008=Spain

 

Service009=USMC

 

Service010=NewZealand <<<<<<<< added this

 

 

Also in campaigne4.ini

 

[NewZealandUnit001] <<<<<<<added the following at bottom of list of units

 

UnitName=No. 75 Squadron

 

ForceID=1

 

UnitID=128

 

StartDate=10/19/1986

 

DescFile=woe4Start.txt

 

StartText=woe4Start1.txt

 

AircraftType=A-4K_Kahu

 

 

In campaigne4_DATA.INI

 

[AirUnit128] <<<<<<<<added the following to list of air units

 

AircraftType=A-4K_Kahu

 

Squadron=75sqn

 

UnitName=No. 75 Squadron

 

ForceID=1

 

Nation=NewZealand

 

DefaultTexture=RNZAF EURO

 

BaseArea=Söllingen Airbase

 

BaseMoveChance=25

 

RandomChance=100

 

StartNumber=16

 

MaxAircraft=16

 

StartAircraft=16

 

MaxPilots=16

 

StartPilots=16

 

Experience=100

 

Morale=100

 

Supply=50

 

MissionChance[sWEEP]=15

 

MissionChance[CAP]=15

 

MissionChance[iNTERCEPT]=15

 

MissionChance[ESCORT]=10

 

MissionChance=20

 

MissionChance[CAS]=30

 

MissionChance[sEAD]=30

 

MissionChance[ARMED_RECON]=30

 

MissionChance[ANTI_SHIP]=10

 

MissionChance[RECON]=20

 

UpgradeType=NEVER

 

 

Everything works except on the loadout screen after starting a campaign in the “SERVICE MARKINGS” box is “UNITED STATES AIRFORCE” instead of ‘ROYAL NEW ZEALAND AIRFORCE’ which is what shows up on a single mission. Does anyone know how to fix this?

 

In case you need to know here is the information in TEXTURESET.INI from the RNZAF EURO texture/skin file

Change the userlist to start ay 1985 and let us know if that works.

That made no difference unfortunately. For the life of me I can’t figure out what piece of incorrect or missing data is causing the issue! When I look at the way other addon aircraft are set up to work in the campaign I have done exactly the same!???

 

Cheers for the help,

 

Dan.

When I add extra aircrafts to campaigns I sort out the aircrafts blue side with the other blue units. and red with the red units. I t gives a lot of renumbering in the INI's but it always works afterwards.
