Always Overcast in Independance Campaign

Recommended Posts

I'm playing the War of Independence campaign addon for SF2:I. Every single mission I've played so far has overcast skies.

 

Is that deliberate?

I have noticed same issue. Only in this campaign. And i don't think it's chance value setting. Any other ideas?

Its terrain specific, but if one sets the overcast or inclement chance too high coniciding with the set time & duration of a campaign, then you'll wind up with those results.

 

If I were to redo it, I'd google "Tel Aviv, average sunshine by month", or something along those lines, to get an idea of what to set the values to.

Very cool. I didn't realize it could set based upon a time as well. What value in the terrain files do I need to look at? Is this in <terrain name>.ini?

IIRC the campaign is set in the winter months isn't it? And Israel doesn't always have clear blue skies at that time of year anyway.

It's set in october. I'm playing through that campaign now and I've been getting mostly broken or scattered clouds if any at all.

Okay, this is everything that's in my IsraelME.ini file...

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Israel, Middle East

DataFile=IsraelME_data.ini

TargetFile=IsraelME_targets.ini

TargetTypeFile=IsraelME_types.ini

MovementFile=IsraelME_movement.ini

NationsFile=IsraelME_nations.ini

BriefingText=IsraelME_briefing.ini

DogfightFile=IsraelME_dogfight.ini

DogfightOnly=FALSE

Longitude=34.80

Latitude=32.08

LimitedNations=TRUE

GroundObjectTexture=tan

 

[Map]

FilenameFormat=IsraelME_Map%d.bmp

Width=1000000.0

Height=1000000.0

NumZoomLevels=3

 

[WeatherChance]

ScatteredChance=45

BrokenChance=30

OvercastChance=10

InclementChance=5

 

[AllowedDates]

StartDate=1947

EndDate=2050

 

I changed the WeatherChance values to what you see from this in the original...

 

[WeatherChance]

ScatteredChance=25

BrokenChance=25

OvercastChance=4

InclementChance=2

 

Why am I still only seeing Overcast in the campaign? Any ideas?
