Winter MAP Camouflage and crazy bomb craters
« on: October 25, 2009, 03:03:24 PM »

Hi all.

CirX, hope you don't mind me opening this thread here... Can be deleted once I update my Slovenia map thread. In the meantine, you map makers are probably aware of the Winter camo and bomb craters being visible on the winter maps. With this new MDS that will be out with UP1.8, this problem might not exist any more. What I have done is simple. I have introduced new variable in WORLD section of your map ini file called WATER_STATE. Two options there: LIQUID and ICE. Don't have to be a brain surgeon to figure what they do :) From now on, you will be able to have winter camo on your maps, temp at 0 degrees and no bomb craters visible on water (and also, planes won't be landing on water too :D). Also, if your map does not have WATER_STATE variable set, behaviour is as it was before, so there should be no problem at all with old maps.

Once i have some more time, I'll try to extract it from MDS and insert it in the friction mods. I know you SAS folk are picky about your MODs and you should be!

This is from my updated Slovenia map ini file:

Quote
[WORLDPOS]
CAMOUFLAGE = WINTER
WATER_STATE = LIQUID -> can be LIQUID or ICE
MONTH=12
DECLIN = 46
PRESSURE    = 840
TEMPERATURE =  0

Cheers!

UPDATE:
New friction mod is ready. It includes above mentioned updates

Download STAND ALONE version:
http://www.352ndfg.com/zuti/Zuti_AirfieldsFriction_STD_v0.4.exe

Download CTO version:
http://www.352ndfg.com/zuti/Zuti_AirfieldsFriction_CTO_v0.4.exe

IMPORTANT
DELETE ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THIS MOD FROM YOUR MODS FOLDER!

Just to have this clear in my mind: all that needs to be done for this mod to have affect in a map is to add that line to a load.ini?

No additional files are needed? Nothing in the way of files to be added to the mods folder?

agracier: well, you'll have to have MDS installed :) I'm currently working on porting it to my friction mods... I hope I'll be done soon, I'm working on several areas just to catch UP release date.

Malone: I just hope It'll be useful :)

Cheers.
