***This is a replacement for the previous version 1.0***
This is a modification to the original bombing range to make the home base airfield a likeness of Nellis AFB and take advantage of some of the new Hi-Res Desert textures now available. It also includes some of the objects from the Mescalero Proving Grounds range made By ChampionsVA56.
Nellis AFB is located alot farther South on the map that the original base was. This should eliminate getting aggressor A/C right over Nellis as you take off.
A few drone and aggressor Aircraft are included in this download. You'll see these flying around the range, and parked at the Range Airfield. All weapons have been removed, or they are equiped with training missles
so they won't hurt you.
Only hostile aircraft with a "NationName=RANGE" or "AGRS" will show up on this terrain.
A modified version of the NATIONS.INI file has been included. It is the stock file with the "RANGE" and "AGRS" nations added. You need the "RANGE" nation defined if you want the drone's showing up and need the AGRS nation for the Aggressor A/C.
Provided your other terrains have their "LimitedNations" setup, you won't see the drones's or Aggressor A/C anywhere except the Range. A modified version of the SQUADRONLIST.INI is included with the USAF Thunderbirds squadron added.
The bombing range targets use the layout of the Mescalero Proving Grounds range and the drones and Aggressor A/C use its runway to launch and recover. Note: the target area that was known as the
Warehouse Targets is now Friendly and is a called the Range Control Facility. When you choose to do a Close Support mission, your tanks will be lined up defending it from the enemy tanks.
One thing that is a "feature" not a bug, is that you will have Friendly A/C spawning from Nellis, sometimes right when you are, as Escort or SEAD flights. You cannot collide with them and they will go right thru you as applicable.

HURC'S SF2V AIRFIELD REBUILD MOD 1.1 Patch 1 (Freeware - Not to be used in any Payware mods) 10-9-11
This patch adds a few missing items from the original mod. Additionally, there are new targets and types files with slight changes. Backup your current ones if you have modified them just in case.
Plus: If you have an install of the "Vietnam Air and Ground Expansion Pack 2.x Mod", I've included a set of targets and types files specifically for use in that mod. Make sure you BACKUP first just in case.
Install the original SF2V AB Rebuild Mod 1.1 into your AG-XP mod folder and then copy the included objects, types and targets ini files into the mod folder as well - say yes to overwrite prompts.
HURC'S SF2V AIRFIELD REBUILD MOD 1.1
This mod is was inspired by "Piecemeals Airfield mod to complement Stary's Green Hell3 mod for SF2V". Thanks Piecemeal, Stary and all you other crazy modders! Thanks TK!
I basically rebuilt the airfields on both sides with new objects and layouts. I wanted to make them so that you will not find allied equipment on an enemy airfield, or at least not enough to notice. I didn't think you should see USAF type revetments on a Russian designed and Chinese built airfield such as those in North Vietnam. Many of the same terrain objects that Piecemeal used are still included and along with new ones that were not yet created at the time of his mods release.
