SEAD, but barely anyone is shooting at me?!(Vanilla SF2:V)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

am flying a stock vanilla install of SF2:Vietnam and enjoying it a lot. However one issue I noticed is, when I fly single missions and select SEAD as mission type,

hardly anyone is ever really shooting at me.That goes for SAMs as well as AAA. Even though  general enemy skill level is set to hard and the enemy ground activity

within the mission parameters set to heavy, I can still leisurely coast in between 5000-8000ft fly straight over the target area and no one seems to be really making an

effort to shoot me down. I'm very very rarely if at all locked up by ground radar, despite my efforts to make to it easier for them by flying at medium altitude.

Very very seldom do I ever see a SAM coming up and then its usually targeted at another aircraft  and some times even flying at low altittude straight at the AAA batteries

results in no tracers coming up .


Am I doing something wrong , or is there another setting to tweak?


I also tried a later date  in the 70s , to see if more heavy defense is now built up, but no.

 

 

Kind regards,


Snappy

North Vietnam 1966 to 1972 was usually okay regarding SAMs but depends what you want to compare it with.

You can have the skies filled with tracer if you like but requires a bit of modding - example you can easily create a separate install so you dont mess up your current one and try this out because I think it has levels of defence - but there is about 6 parts. Failing that see if there are any separate Mods that up the defence level.

This is quite strange... Stock Vietnam terrain seems to have more effective air defenses than other terrains. I had made a similar topic some years ago:

In Vietnam the SA-2F Guideline performs much better than others terrains.

indeed, there's PLENTY of AAA/SAMs in the stock game.

Agreed as if I run a modern setting I got so many SAMs and AAA that I don't know what to do but pray I survive. It's not that bad but it's something to worry about though.

Hey Everyone,

 

thank you for your answers. Its strange. I tested it some more . There seems to be some variation. I flew a few missions where I at least got locked up by radar a couple

of times and even got the occasional SAM fired at me  and even hit me once or twice, then again,  I didn't really maneuver  for evasion.

Maybe my expectattions were simply off a bit , as I was somehow anticipating lots of SAMS in the air and curtains 

of AAA tracers lower down during SEAD missions.

 

So far I did not encounter that intensity.But  its  not a huge problem for me, I like the sim for what it is enough already.

@ MigBuster: Thanks a lot for the link to the expansion Pack! I might give that try once I  have better understanding of the modding folder process , with various installs of 

the different titles.

 It still a bit unclear to me, but I found a sticky topic on it and even a Ytube tutorial , so  sooner or later will likely dive into it.

 

 

Thanks again all & Kind regards,


Flapsfull

@Wrench,

read your comment in the other topic regarding incomplete / out of date non-offical , illegal game versions  missing key components.

Just for info , this is not the case here, it's a full buy and download from the official 3rd Wire Website.


Kind regards,


Snappy
