Re: how to add units are reinforcements?

I know with squadrons there's a "rienf" field or something like that; put the time delay there (in hours) and check the "inactive" flag. Don't have access to tacedit right now (wrong computer) but I'd assume it's the same for battalions too.

I noticed that the SSD entries don't hold weapons with an index higher than 602 (MIM-72 in RV). Is there a way to expand this data out to 700+, or is there some hard limit as to the number of different weapons availabe?

Re: Can't change the F-16.dat file in SimData.zip!

You could just extract the zip to the directory and then rename it. Then falcon will use the "sim" directory instead of going through the zip (makes it much easier to edit FMs and such; you just save and fly instead of having to unzip, change, rezip...)

By default the nukes are only avalible in TE. If you want them for the campaign, get tacedit and add them to the squadron's stores (I say tacedit because it can have an immediate effect upon a current campaign instead of having to start a new one).
