Kuriles tweak version 1 ready

Post by toonces » 2009-07-03 14:25:00

I tweaked the Kuriles theater. Unfortunately, because of the troubles opening up modded kuriles .cam folders with tacedit, I can no longer remember which version was my "latest" version- it shows up as the center campaign in the campaign theater selection screen.

The tweak alters the blue air OOB to use mostly JASDF aircraft (F-4EJ, F-1, F-104J, F-15J) and some U.S. reinforcements, plus the CVN groups SM put in there.

I think I edited the red OOB some, but not heavily. Added some MiG-23/27s and I'm not sure what else anymore :oops: .

I included ccc's terrain tweaks that enhance ground movement in FF4.

I have not tested the tweaked campaign files in FF4, but they should work in FF5. No ground movement though.

For best results, with hitiles installed, run terrain switcher to create winter tiles, then install Kuriles, then install the mod. Crank the ceiling down to overcast at 5,000 ft and it is quite immersive.

No manual, no support, I did this a while ago and it's just been languishing on my HD. Maybe someone can take a look and see if it's worth releasing as an update to Kuriles. I tested it some and it was pretty fun.

Included files:
savex.cam
savex.tri

when using new terrain files, be sure to run htti and lxnormalfix exe...

Code: Select all

C:\MicroProse\Falcon4\Utilities\htti.exe -auto C:\MicroProse\Falcon4\theaters\Kurile\terrdata

C:\MicroProse\Falcon4\Utilities\LxNormalFix.exe @Nevada @C:\MicroProse\Falcon4\Theaters\Kurile\terrdata

Before we release these "public" somebody needs to write up a manual/notes. I'm just not going to get to it this month fellas; my family is finally coming down after 4 months away. No more Falcon for me until August.

Any chance to get this theater to work in AF? Used to live in this part of the world, would love to fly this.

Will do, sir. Didn't think I'd even be able to load this theater in AF, but it loaded up fine.
