Recommended Posts

You probably know about this: The Mission Type

I'd like to create a new mission type: Intercept. Yeah I love to pursue the gigant bombers :blum: .

How I can create one or is there one yet made?

In the data.ini file for each aircraft under [MissionData] is the entry called "PrimaryRoles=" just add the word "INTERCEPT" to the roles listed and you should be fly intercept missions.

Wings over Vietnam / SF2: Vietnam does not have Intercept available in stock, as such - above option will not work.

You will need to enable it. Go to VietnamSEA.ini - it is found in the Terrains folder.

 

Find this line

 

[AllowedMissionTypes]

 

There is a list that should look like this.

FriendlyMissionTypes=SWEEP,CAP,ESCORT,INTERCEPT,STRIKE,SEAD,RECON,ANTI_SHIP

EnemyMissionTypes=SWEEP,CAP,ESCORT,INTERCEPT,STRIKE,SEAD,RECON,ANTI_SHIP

 

Add ,INTERCEPT to both in the same manner as the other missions.

 

Done.

Copy and past the entry below into the the VietnamSEA.ini file.

 

 

[AllowedMissionTypes]

FriendlyMissionTypes=SWEEP,ESCORT,STRIKE,SEAD,ARMED_RECON,RECON,ANTI_SHIP

EnemyMissionTypes=SWEEP,CAP,ESCORT,RECON,ANTI_SHIP

 

Then add INTERCEPT to the "FriendlyMissionTypes" line followed by, as specified above, to the aircraft you want to fly intercept in and then see if it works.

allowed mission types is SF2 only

 

the only way to get Intercept missions is to NOT use WoV as the base game install. It does not contain the dlls necessary to generate them.

OTH, SF1, WoE and WoI DO

I did not realize that WoV was different from SF1 & WoE with regard to Intercept missions. Something new to remember.

Is any possibility to convert from SP2 to SP1 (using the ANSI to UNICODE) for using intercept mission type?

No...it is part of the core files.

 

Your best option is to buy Wings Over Europe.

 

Second best (ie more expensive) is to buy SF2 Vietnam.

OK, sorry for being too insistent, do you think I can use the INTERCEPT "feature" creating msn missions?
