New ships in DCG
« on: January 05, 2012, 08:16:05 AM »

Hi,
Perhaps interesting for ship builders:

Some types of ships can be used in DCG to transport ground forces or oil!
These are in IL-2 the following standard ships:

Tramp                   columns, armor
Tral                      columns, armor
MFP                      columns
DaihatsuLC             columns
LVT_2                   columns
LCVP                     columns
LVT_2WAT             columns
Tanker                  Oil supply

DCG use the name of the ship, that is displayed in the "chief.ini"! The generator looks then for the ID within the whole name of the ship.

If you name a new ship for example: HMSLibertyTramp44, DCG will see the "Tramp" and assume it's a transport. Same is with the other IDs!

So if you want, that a new oil tanker works in DCG to supply oil for the troops, than use the ID "Tanker" in the name of the new ship!

The same here:

CV                     Fleet Carrier
CVE                   Escort Carrier/Light Carrier
BB                     Battleship/Super Battleship
CA                     Cruiser/Light Cruiser
DD                     Destroyer/Destroyer Escort or similar

Important is, that the ID is included in the name:

Example for a light cruiser: IJNCLJintsuCA
Example for a Destroyer Escort: USSEvartsDDE

The IDs for all these ships are also important, that DCG can recognizes the new ship in the right category, to end a campaign (endcampaign.dcg) and to spawn the ship without problems during the campaign!

Thanks for your support!

Hi,
I'm new to modding, and perhaps someone could hint me in the right direction.

As Lonestar wrote, DCG identifies naval and ground unit types by IDs in the name like "Tramp" and "CV".

Now the problem is that many new HSFX units don't follow this old naming convention. The Bismarck doesn't have a "BB" in its name, the HMSEagle doesn't have the "CV" tag, etc, etc.

To ask Paul to hard-code dozens of such exceptions is a no-go IMHO.

An alternative would be to create a small DCG mod for HSFX with DCG-compliant unit names. I have something like this in mind:

Bismarck -> BismarckBB
HMSEagle -> HMSEagleCV
Carrier1 -> Carrier1CVL.

Is it possible? Which files should I fiddle with? Ships.ini and Technics.properties?

Thanks

This requires a change to the class files.
Not a big job to do but unfortunately would result in an incompatibility with previously made missions and campaigns which use these ships. --- unless the old version of the ship class was also retained.

Oh, really :( . . . then I think DCG will handle all those ships like DDs! So when one of the bigger ships are sunk then you must manually "sunk" these ships also in the"Ground Objects Editor" of DCG before the next mission will be created!

Yep, this cannot be avoided, so far as I can judge. But if the modification were made in the form of a small mod, it would be the user's responsibility to activate it before, and deactivate it after using DCG as a campaign generator. In the long run, a better solution would be if HSFX ship designations themselves were adjusted to the old naming convention with the next version, but this also would result in incompatibility with previously created mission stuff.*

BTW, which class files do you mean? As I mentioned, I'm new to modding. Thanks

(* Still, it wouldn't be that difficult to make a small utility converting all occurencies of HMSEagle and the likes to HMSEagleCV and the likes in all previously created .mis files.)

This is the lesser part of the problem (I mostly use the "ships remain sunk" option). But many new units (predominantly transports and carriers) won't be identified AS SUCH by DCG. Pretended destroyers don't carry supply and troops, and no planes can be stationed aboard of them. That is, they are useless.

Here is the complete ship list from the HSFX7 chief.ini
Seems that there are many more than the ones that you listed that would need to be changed.
This would include a number of stock ships, Tirpitz for one.
Perhaps it would be more effective to amend DCG to accept a user editable list of ships and designations.
That way we would not be creating more incompatibilities with previous missions.

Yes, what I mentioned were only a few examples. Indeed there are dozens of problematic designations.

Perhaps it would be more effective to amend DCG to accept a user editable list of ships and designations.

Yep, but all this depends on Paul who's got very limited time for DCG nowadays. I was just exploring the alternatives, less effective and more controversial for sure, but not dependent on the time and work of someone else...  ;)

To change it using a mod would I guess involve re-doing one class files and editing chief.ini and stationary.ini
The mod would have to be based on a clean HSFX installation.
If any users had additional objects added, like ships or vehicles, then they would have to add these to the ini files themselves to keep them working.

The first step would be to edit the chief.ini file I posted above to show the names required by DCG.

But many new units (predominantly transports and carriers) won't be identified AS SUCH by DCG. Pretended destroyers don't carry supply and troops, and no planes can be stationed aboard of them. That is, they are useless.

Right . . . at least the IL-2 standard transports have the right ID after asheshouse list . . . better then nothing! :(

Thanks Ashe and Lonestar, I'll give it a try.

I presume that stock units not conforming to the naming convention (e.g. Tirpitz or Kirov) are identified individually by DCG.

Just for the record, these are the problematic units among the main warship types (I haven't listed gunboats, submarines, transports and civilian ships):

Some of them follow a pattern like "carrier", "destroyer" or "corvette", but the rest is pretty chaotic. The same applies to the other ships (not listed here): there's a "tankerX" and a "transportX" type, but the rest doesn't follow any clear pattern.
