I love this sim- But c'mon! A real pilot would not know the location and type of every enemy aircraft with the in-flight map. Actually, not even the exact location of the friendlies. (Maybe with current classified technology, though)

 

Has someone made a mod in which only friendlies are shown on the map? Or, maybe just within a certain range of the pilot- Like a general idea of the situation around them for 10 or 20 miles or so?

 

Someone please point this noob in the right direction :)

If my memory serves well, I think there are certain files, .tga's maybe that you can remove in order to make enemies and friendlies not show on the map. You might have to dig a bit further, but I definitely read that on here a week or so ago.

Thanks so much! This game keeps getting better and better...

 

Now, how do I squeeze it back into the .cat file?

you don't.

 

you drop the edited file into the /Flight folder. Create one if one doesn't exist.

Important Safety Tip
NEVER drink and mod!!!

 

The extracted file goes into the MODS FOLDER, /Flight folder -- it doesn't stay in the 'core install'. If it does, it don't do nothing

      Morning - I've been able to deceifer some of the code through trial and error, and used the Knowledge Base here, but no luck with this one. 
      For SF2/Wo*, I've downloaded the terrains CentralPacific and Hawaii (SF1).  The terrains work, look great, and I can fly around, but no enemy aircraft appear.  If I even try to fly an IJN plane, the game crashes to the desktop.  I've messed with the Nations INI, made sure I have a carrier so the IJN has an airfield (Zuiho in Ground Objects - and since I can't find an Akagi, I edited the Targets and Types INI's to change Akagi to Zuiho), but I cant get enemy planes into the terrain.
      Any help much appreciated.  Thanks again!
