Checkyerflak! + Arty Barrage! v 1.2
« on: February 03, 2011, 01:50:17 AM »



This mod will add four new "superflak" guns and one "arty barrage" gun to your game. They look like normal flak guns, but fire at many times the rate and with greatly reduced accuracy.

For example, all the flak in the picture above was fired by just two of these guns  ;D

Why would you want this? Because as it is to get decent flak on a mission you have to set up dozens of flak guns. To get flak over a whole map, you have to set up hundreds.

Each of these flak guns represents an entire battery of 10-20 guns. Adding one or two to every city on a map can give you realistic, unpredictable flak coverage with minimal object placement. Great for large-scale bombing missions or far-ranging fighter sweeps.

The low accuracy will also reduce the "sniper flak" problem, making hits more a matter of luck than aim. In the picture above, only one bomber was downed by flak out of a formation of sixty.

*New to 1.2*

Now works properly (ie, with smoke) in 4.10. Will no longer work in 4.09.

*New To 1.1*

The WWI Flak gun, or "Archie Barrage", fires more slowly and with less accuracy, and the explosions are relatively harmless. This will give you a good thick cloud of flak without posing much of a threat, just like in WWI.

The "Arty Barrage" is a 75mm fast firing artillery piece that is nearly indestructible. If you place them carefully (they have to be aiming right at their targets) they will simulate an entire artillery barrage. Two guns firing at each other (or one gun firing at another turned the other way) can simulate a barrage for hours, great for those WWI artillery duels or just plain atmospheric artillery!

Old version (4.09 compatible): http://www.mediafire.com/?5wgmw70p9tjya6g

Unzip to your mods folder. Installation notes in the readme. Please delete previous versions, including .ini entries.

Thanks to Beo for testing and for the arty barrage and WWI Flak ideas.

awesome! i was getting just a tad frustrated at continually having to set up tons of flak guns to get anything near a decent-looking result.
very innovative, thanks CY6.  ;D 8)
lol, you could just as easily have called this mod 'crazyflak!'  ;D ;D
