AnatoliaProject_Version1.7z


Anatolia v1 (03/26/2011) for SF2 Series by PureBlue (Umut Destan)

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

This project has been in development for 3 years and is the fruit of long hours of

research, design and implementation work. I've met great people along the way and

they made many contributions to the project. I thank every one of them, my special

appreciations go to, Steve "Swambast" who worked countless hours with me and developed

STT (Swambast's Target Translator) which let me lay the foundation of this project;

Stary, a great artist from Poland who is behind all the beautiful looks of the terrain;

Dave and the CombatAce team for providing us the platform to meet and have fun.

 

The project includes a large map covering Anatolia (Turkiye), Greece, Aegean, Black Sea, and eastern Med.

The download also includes many ground and terrain objects, contributed by the talented modders in our

community. It's essential to install all these components to get the complete experience.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

INFO & INSTALLATION

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

This project is designed for 2nd Gen SF2 series.

Succesfully tested in SF2:Europe and above. (A merged EXP2 install is recommended but not a requirement.)

 

There are 2 ways/methods to install this Mod.

#1 An exclusive install just for this Mod.

#2 Installing on top of the mod folder you already are using. (meaning, merging with your own install)

 

*** The preferred method of install is the (1) exclusive install. Since there are many groundobjects,

ships and air defense systems placed in handpicked locations, it's better to only use the objects that

come with this projects' files. The included ones are the makes/models that Turkish and Greek sides have

in their inventory. (As best as I could research and find appropriate mods for)

 

 

INSTALL METHOD #1

1. Copy and Rename a set of your "game.exe and game.ini" files to "Anatolia.exe and Anatolia.INI"

(eg. StrikeFighters2 Europe.exe and StrikeFighters2 Europe.INI)

Run the newly renamed Anatolia.exe once, so you have a new Mod Folder.

Check this link if you don't know what a ModFolder is. http://combatace.com/topic/62302-what-is-the-mod-folder/

 

2. Now go into your new ModFolder and delete the "Objects\GroundObject" folder.

 

3. Time to copy the project files. Use Winrar or 7zip to extract the AnatoliaProject_Version1.7z to a temporary folder.

Copy all included folders (Eg. Terrains, Objects, Flight etc.) into your ModFolder, overwrite if necessary.

With this project, a terrain folder, groundobjects and their respective guns/weapons are included.

 

 

INSTALL METHOD #2

With this method, you copy all included files to your already existing ModFolder.

Use Winrar or 7zip to extract the AnatoliaProject_Version1.7z to a temporary folder.

Copy all included folders (Eg. Terrains, Objects, Flight etc.) into your ModFolder, overwrite if necessary.

With this project, a terrain folder, groundobjects and their respective guns/weapons are included.

 

 

IMPORTANT RECOMMENDATIONS

1. Everytime you load up the game. Run a quick single mission and quit without flying.

All the successive SingleMission/Campaign games will work as designed and expected.

(Why do this? Because the project includes many ground objects, seldomly the game engine has problems loading

everything, so the first mission you load up will have many objects/ships missing from the map.

The game does some kind of caching so after that first mission, everything will show!)

 

2. If you don't have a powerfull computer, lower your settings to avoid crashes.

If your game crashes or locks up at %100 LOAD, try running your first mission with Settings:

-Enemy Air Activiy: LIGHT, Enemy Air Defense: LIGHT

 

3. Two airfields are close to the MissionEditor edge limits of the map. Aktion and Diyarbakir airfields. If you

are set to take off from these, the game will drop your cockpit in the stratosphere! and you won't be able to fly.

Please reset your base or start in the air, if this happens. There wasn't much I can do fix this other than

cancel their status.

 

4. The Terrain has LimitedNations set the TRUE. So you'll only get aircraft with only Turkish and Greek markings.

 

5. A specific Anatolia_EnvironmentSystem.INI is included and you can edit it to your liking.

Take note that in the Environment file the clouds are set to a specific MinBaseAltitude to overcome the cloud bug.

 

6. All included Guns/Weapons/Sounds are for the necessary ground objects. Nothing extra is included here.

Without the GroundObjects and their respective files, the map will not look as designed.

(For example, naval traffic in the Aegean, historical sam sites and navy/army bases)

 

7. Most naval traffic in the Aegean Sea is classified as NEUTRAL. You can attack them but you can't order your

wingman to do so. If you want, edit & classify the target areas as "Alignment=ENEMY" in the Anatolia_TARGETS.INI

 

 

OTHER MODS TO ADD from 3rd Party Sites

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- OH_Perry FFG standing in for Turkish Gabya Class. Download from: http://cplengineeringllc.com/SFP1/

Copy the 4 LOD files into all three GroundObjects/GabyaClass* folders.

This ship is used at various locations in the map, and it would be wise to it to your install.

 

- Stary's Unified Effects Pack is strongly recommended.

Thank you everyone :salute:

 

(and thanks for assistance on the map, Nick)

 

Two notes for this first release, although there are plenty of ground & surface targets; there's only very few definitions in the MOVEMENT.ini for Anti_Ship, CAS, and Armed recon.

I'd like to improve on these soon but if anybody feels like giving it a shot, please feel free.

 

Also make sure to read the Recommendations #1 in the readme.

You are welcome Umut, glad to be of any help. Wish i had found out about the project earlier, i could maybe have helped more. This is a very promising and with great potential project with a great deal of work implemented.

mine just dropped right in ..!!! how odd!!! Even without installing all the /GroundObjects, it worked fine, albeit missing a few things.

(the only reason I said 'for sf2 only', is cause you said 'installed to WoE'.)

This will need a decent computer to run, for sure.

The map is pretty large, with many target areas and many groundobjects. So yes, it might have the longest load times yet! :grin:

 

So I suggest, lowering graphics settings, if you don't have the latest technology. I did my tests on the highest settings and frame rates were pretty good. (35 at the most populated areas, and usually 50-60 the rest.)

 

dsawan, i never got grey aicraft. Just sometimes a few aaa objects came out black. and this was 1 out of 10 loadings.. something to do with gfx cards texture memory, me thinks..

Go right ahead my friend :good:

 

About the map edges issue. It's not a "The Wall" issue I'm afraid. You can fly perfectly past these airfields and right to the defined edge. It's just that the Mission Generator will not plot waypoints inside the first %10 of map edges.

So what happens is, the mission generator will set you to take off from this airfield, but the coordinates will be a few km to the east/west of it.. you end up in earth's orbit, so to say.. i had brought it up to TK, but he didn't seem enthusiastic about it..

Please don't clown me, but could this map be used in SF1? I've already got a Greece vs Turkey install based on WOE and would rather convert 1 mod to 1st Gen than a whole dedicated install to SF2 if possible.

 

What would I need to do to use the terrain in 1st Gen?

 

Thanks.
