Enhanced Arming Gui - updated for 4.13.2/ 4.13.3
« on: July 29, 2016, 03:48:24 AM »

Not sure where to put this post but as I use to upload the bomb/ torpedo/mines packs here, let's put it here too.
The initial version of this mod has been uploaded with the US WW2 Air-ground exhaustive collection, but it deserves a post by itself.
4.13 had introduced a "Barometric fuze" which is in fact working only for flares and not suited for other air ground ordnance. Moreover they found "clever" to display the arming delay in kilometers (!) on the arming gui. So I decided to push things a little further.
Now we have:
1) Barometric fuzes - with arming delays in meters and feet above sea level (not above ground)



2) Hydrostatic fuzes -  with arming delay in seconds and feet depth under sea level (these bombs won't explode on land,a s the fuze is activated by water entrance)



3) proximity fuzes with arming delay in feet and meters above ground (not above sea level)




1) New Fuzes (Barometric, Hydrostatic, Proximity) and New Fuze Arming GUI (meters and feet) v1.02:
4.12.2:
https://www.mediafire.com/download/6kwmx7p4x7d7yiu/%21%21_NewBarometric_HydrostaticFuzes+4.12.2.7z
4.13.1:
https://www.mediafire.com/download/qb2x0bp95q2mugx/%21%21_A_NewFuzes_Barometric_Hydrostatic_Proximity+413.1+v1.02.7z

Update
To cope with TD usual anti-modder practices, if you use 4.13.2 or 4.13.3,  you'll need to copy the following files into the folder !!_A_NewFuzes_Barometric_Hydrostatic_Proximity v1.02 directory:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/w1h0hs7m738xul6/NewFuzes_Barometric_Hydrostatic_Proximity+New+Files+for+4.13.3.7z

Remark: It is advisable to copy the gui.properties file from inside the !!_NewBarometric_HydrostaticFuzes/ gui_additions/i18n folder to the STD/i18n folder (instead of the same name file present there), as some installations of the game seem to load this file only when it is is this folder.

The proximity fuzes armed bombs are the ones used in 1945 and in ww2 aftermath:
Bomb220lbFrag_AN_M88
Bomb260lbFrag_AN_M81
Bomb100lbGP_AN_M30
Bomb250lbGP_AN_M57
Bomb500lbGP_AN_M64
Bomb1000lbGP_AN_M65
Bomb2000lbGP_AN_M66
The GP bombs among them being also equipped with hydrostatic fuzes,a s they were to become the "polyvalent" uniform standard equipment of the US air forces.

The 412 version includes also a suitable versions of the SAB3m, SAB 15 and SAB55 flares introduced in 4.13


You need of course to activate the "Bombs Fuzes" button in "weapons and stores" section of the "difficulty settings" to see these appear.

(The cod files of the US WW2 Air-ground exhaustive collection enable to see these fuzes in action.)

Links updated in first post: Updated, corrected folders include the correct path for the i18n/gui.properties, minor corrections in some java files, added 100lb and 260lbFrag bombs to the proximity fuze enabled bombs, as they appear as such in 1945 documents, and added some files that will be useful with the upcoming UK Air Ground ordnance pack

This looks awsome Dreamk! Good on you!

Sorry for the noob question but I know close to nothing in ordnance... Do you use imperial only for Hydrostatic fuzes depth because it only applies to US/UK ordnance?

To tell the truth...I could have added a window in m to the one in ft for hydrostatic fuzes. (although the data for these bombs are generally in ft or seconds). There is room for that on the right side of the current window. I'll probably do that in the next update.

You are so forgiven, one of the reason I fly Soviet planes is because they are in metric!

It got tricky when I went for a flight initiation this weekend in a Piper Warrior and the instructor said "We'll just go up to 3000 feet"... At least "rpm" are unit-less.

Does not help either that in my Air Force days (as an armourer -  shame on me! But it was National Service) we were loading 30mm canons and 80mm rockets! Ok I know a tiny bit about ordnance but actually very little considering how much we had to handle the stuff then.

A friendly *Bump* for a very cool addition to this game!
I have been using it with the other US_Arms + Planes package you posted before  ;)
Thank you for all the New Fuzes (Barometric, Hydrostatic, and Proximity goodies)

Thank you once again DreamK!

This mod has apparently hurt the misplaced feelings of the emascxxxxxxx bastxxxx at TD (and I am awfully polite in writing that!!!!!) and they have found fit to "slightly" modify the order of the frames in the arming gui - nothing revolutionary, just enough to make a mess of this mod, without any other aim (and I tried hard to understand why they did it before reaching the present conclusion) - I had always had a lot of patience and tried to attribute their behaviour to cultural patterns or bad manners due to faulty education  - but I have reached the point where the diagnosis is obvious....
So if you use 4.13.2 or 4.13.3, here are the files you need to copy into the folder !!_A_NewFuzes_Barometric_Hydrostatic_Proximity v1.02 directory:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/w1h0hs7m738xul6/NewFuzes_Barometric_Hydrostatic_Proximity+New+Files+for+4.13.3.7z
Enjoy - and keep modding :))

Clicking on a download link is too much?
