New to editing weapons loads in campaigns

Recommended Posts

Ok so I been messing around with Suez Crisis 1956, I started by replacing aircraft with newer models of the vampire, meteor, and even added the missing torpedo loadout to the Wyvern and I was successful in that.

So just to mess round I added the Sea Vixen to the campaign to see if it would work, I know it wasn't around at the time but Im just learning how to mod things.

 

The jet does show up on HMS OCEAN which is where I put it and it works in campaign, but it has no loadouts at all in arming. I did add the weapons loads to the SuezN_data.ini here,

[AirUnit054]
AircraftType=SeaVixen
Squadron=892Sq
ForceID=1
Nation=RoyalNavy
DefaultTexture=Suez
StartNumber=0
CarrierBased=TRUE
NavalUnitID=2
ShipID=1
BaseMoveChance=0
RandomChance=100
MaxAircraft=12
StartAircraft=12
MaxPilots=12
StartPilots=12

Morale=100

MissionChance[NAVAL_ATTACK]=20
MissionChance[ESCORT_JAMMER]=0

Supply[001].WeaponType=UK250LB

Supply[002].WeaponType=UK500LB
Supply[002].Quantity=320
Supply[003].WeaponType=UK1000LB
Supply[003].Quantity=240
Supply[004].WeaponType=Matra_Typ155

Supply[006].WeaponType=RedTopIR
Supply[006].Quantity=320
Supply[007].WeaponType=FirestreakIR
Supply[007].Quantity=320

and Suez.ini here

[RoyalNavyUnit015]
UnitName=892Sq
ForceID=1
UnitID=53
StartDate=10/29/1956
AircraftType=SeaVixen
AlternateType=SeaVenom21
DescFile=CampaignI5Start.txt
StartText=CampaignI5Start.txt
StartScreen=CampaignStart7.jpg
CampaignBaseScreen=CampaignStart7.jpg

 

Thanks for any help in advance....Witchy

noticed it on a seperate question some time ago. typing this

strike.jpg.cd55759f2796cd4a2670c07e89b8d462.jpg

directly into the forum strikes through all the words that follow.

found that out since i was posting a question and my examples were and [Strike_61]

Might be just a service date things maybe or if you have just downloaded it there were a few reasons why things didn't show

I sorted it out, and thanks for info.

 

It was because the unit Id didn't match in both ini's. I had to set both to 053, so you can see above that one was labeled "54".

I love the fact that there are Girls/Ladies, who love flight sims, and get stuck in with modding, I wish more gals would join in, as it is great when they do. As with the modelling community, there are some superb scale moddelers who are Female, and I love to see it. Keep up the great work !!!  :pilotfly:

I have loved aviation most of my life, We are out here even if we are a rarity in the combat flight sim genre. I used to be a member of hovercontrol.com back in the day and I flew with several other gals who were using FSX to train for helicopter licenses on the flight servers. I have been finding it fun to add planes that were missing in some campaigns here. So far I have made the halifax, mentor, beaufighter, a-26, b-17g, sterling, and lancasters flyable in the campaign suez crisis of course with the help of skillful people who made the planes to begin with here

 

If I find the time, I may attempt a campaign of my own here. The hard thing would be the time needed to place ground units all over and what not. Making squadrons, things flyable, editing loadouts, adding weapon inventories, and designating their bases has proven fast and easy.
