File Name: Iran-Iraq War Terrain/Campaign

File Submitter: Spudknocker

File Submitted: 29 January 2017

File Category: User Made Campaigns

 

 

Included in this package is a brand new Iran-Iraq/Western Asia Terrain with 4 campaigns.

 

Three of the campaigns compose the three periods of the Iran Iraq War-

 

1st- the initial invasion which spans from 1980 through 81- Lots of CAS and Intercept as well as strike missions.

 

2nd The War of the Cities and Tanker War from 1982-1987-Many interdiction anti-shipping and strike missions similar to Rolling Thunder

 

3rd The Battle For Al-Basrah all of 1988- Lots of CAS, anti-ship and strike missions

 

The 4th campaign is a semi-fictionalized Project Dark Gene/Ibex campaign from 1970-77 with USAF and IIAF units conducting recon missions against Soviet Installations and protecting Iranian borders from Iraqi Incursions. Because the terrain doesn't extend to the Soviet Border the campaign was turned 90 degrees with northern Iraq-Mosul/Tikrit acting as our stand in Soviet area.

 

Includes all the required aircraft and skins including Ravenclaw's Beautiful new IIAF/IRIAF F-4's and Iranian weapons and new F-4D and RF-4E skins to match from Yakarov79!

 

A separate install is not required and will work best if incorporated into a big everything thrown in Mod Folder.

 

This mod package is meant to be an addition to Operation Darius or Operation Desert Storm and NATO Fighters 5 from Eburger68. Ground Objects from Mr Burgers packages are required for example Iranian Destroyers.

 

Here is a link to Op Darius- http://combatace.com/topic/74627-operation-darius-final-part-1-of-4/

 

And Desert Storm- http://combatace.com/topic/84643-operation-desert-storm-for-sf2-redux-part-1-of-3/

 

Nato fighters 5- http://combatace.com/files/file/13332-nato-fighters-5-part-1-of-8/

 

The Aircraft included in this mod are readily available here at CA and the thank you/credits list is too large to name everyone! See the credits list for NATO Fighters 5 that should cover everyone!

 

A HUGE thanks to Blaze for Letting me tinker with his new Western Asia Terrain to make it Perfect for an Iran-Iraq War Campaign!

 

This Mod is a combination of many people's work here at CA thank you everyone who helps contribute to the Community!

 

I am by no means an expert but I have had a blast putting this together over the last few months if someone can add more realism to the campaigns PM me and let know! I hope everyone enjoys this!

Well since I'm on duty tonight, I'll have this to make that time fly. Been looking forward to a new Iran-Iraq campaign for a long time. Thanks Spudknocker!

Great work, Spudknocker!

 

I would like to hear what terrain modders think about the new terrain. It took me a long time, I hope it was worth the wait. Standalone releases will follow for ODS and Operation Darius, but I won't update the campaigns, they need major rework and I'll leave that to eburger and others. But I can help a little in regards to historical accuracy.

it's very great one! thank you very much!

but I think maybe the type of aircraft and groundobject  should to be more , such as the F-7A/B/M, MiG-23MF/ML,Su-22M3/M4,H-6D and so on

maybe add this pack is very good:http://combatace.com/files/file/16303-iranian-air-force-support-aircrafts/

and I think maybe take it as a single pack is better.

the last, I think the map should be a NavalMap , so we can add the fleet to Strike 

 

thanks for you great work!

Unless Spud changed anything, it should be a NavalMap. Better yet, wait for me to release the standalone versions of the terrain, they will contain more things, targets and a greater year span, including ODS and OIF.

 After a test with 1980 campaign :

It seems that I have a loadout issue with the MiG-21 MF for strike missions : no ordinances are selected and AI flights are flying "naked"

- The F-14 is only loaded with Sparrows in A2A missions. Is that correct?

I merged the game with NF5 as advised and put ODS groundobjects in.

Historically, it should only be armed with Phoenix as the Sparrows and Sidewinders they had were USAAF versions : it took some times to adapt them without the help of the US

Note that there should not be ecm as "default" loadouts for iranian F4 as they were used in very limited number (The player can still have one)

 

Unless Spud changed anything, it should be a NavalMap. Better yet, wait for me to release the standalone versions of the terrain, they will contain more things, targets and a greater year span, including ODS and OIF.

Makes me think of a US Navy + French Navy campaign against Iran in 1988

check latest Mig-21F/MF/R pack for Iraqi Air Force...loadouts should work with most of the weaponpacks/instals. plus few new things there.

 

 

edit:

Someone got issue with weird-nontextured trees and some of the buildings ?

Its not realy nontextured its black...as coal..

 

 

 

for F-14 very possible scenario of loadouts should / could  be like this:

Weapons are there and available. They are not in the default loadouts. Only Sparrows or Phoenix.

The same goes for Fishbeds MF in air to ground : only... well nothing. But I can select the weapons and fly with them. This issue obviously is a concern for the AI.

Black means untextured.

Most likely Spudknocker didn't correct the entries in the terrain _data.ini. I prefer .jpg textures over .bmp for space conservation, but Spud converted all .jpg textures to .bmp. The _data.ini may be referencing wrong file extensions, .jpg instead of .bmp or viceversa, depending on what is effectively inside the terrain folder.

Also, I decided to remove various TODs for buildings and trees from my latest terrain versions (Spud's terrain still has the additional old TODs), since I don't like them very much, they are very old and I would love to see Stary or other artists improve the tileset someday.

 

So, wait for my standalone releases (it will take a while), the issues you are encountering are already fixed.

For teh specific station code we have in the F14 data.ini :

AIM54

and in the missile data.ini :

F14IRAN, we need  to change to the same name

 Also, I have strike missions with Iran F14, it never occured

 

My install is based on ODS : no sparrow and no AIM9 available :(

 

But the Mig-21 looks ok

You're right Spud, in fact I am a bit stupid recently, you would have noticed about it after all, during all the campaigns' testing.  Makes me think that the terrain was not unzipped correctly. yakarov, try to unzip the terrain again from the mod package. If the issue shows up again, feel free to post screenshots. I can tell from them which are the tiles affected by the bug.

BTW, IIRC it seems that SF2 does have this bug sometimes; when too many mods and resources are being used, something shows up totally black, it fails to load the textures. It happened to me sometimes with ground object and aircraft alike.
