New Blue US Marines ( Postwar ) country for AV-8
« on: August 28, 2017, 10:16:59 PM »

Step ONE:

Read this post for "how to do it" first:

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,54848.msg595203.html#msg595203      Read/do part 1 and 2 ; the rest of it, below right here, already done.

                         ( You need the most recent top PaintSchemes\regiments.ini files of any game setup: that is the very purpose of the extraction ).



 ---------- This mod adds 6 x blue VMA squadrons.... in form of a full new country. ----------

Step TWO: download  http://www.mediafire.com/file/dqm4da5c7ahqq4o/CountryMA.7z
                Install that as per readme: ... has lines for step four and behond.

Step THREE: paste given file(s) to PaintSchemes file extracted/obtained in step one. I had it placed in XTD long time ago. STD will do also, as I did it in my DBW.
                   Tested in 412.2 SAS modact 5.3 . Note  that , within PaintSchemes, are regiments.ini, Cache and Blue files. U need only modded items in the last two files; same for Red and decals files. ).

Step FOUR:  add this single line to STD\ i18n \ country.properties, (   cosmetic in nature  >, does activate US Marines (Postwar) ).

( The new country Blue is called ma. )
Code: [Select]
//New BLUE


ni Nicaragua
el El Salvador
my Malaysia
si Singapore
as RAAF (Postwar)
nz RNZAF (Postwar)
gp Germany (Postwar)

vn Vietnam (South)
cv Costa-Verde
bi Biafra
bd Borduria

ad Ireland
pm Panama
gl Guatemala
mr Morocco
et Eritrea

ma US Marines (Postwar)                                     <-------------------  this is the new line to add     

Step FIVE:  add lines to regiments.ini, just after the USAF ( POSTWAR ) regiments, way down below in the blue section.

Code: [Select]
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

ma01


Blue_USMC_VMA_211z
Blue_USMC_VMA_214z
Blue_USMC_VMA_231z
Blue_USMC_VMA_311z
Blue_USMC_VMA_542z

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Step SIX: I recommend you add these lines to XTD\ i18n \ regShort.properties to fix name appearances in QBM and such.

Code: [Select]
ma01        <none>

Blue_USMC_VMA_211z      Marines VMA_211 "Wake Island Avengers"
Blue_USMC_VMA_214z      Marines VMA_214 "The Black Sheep"
Blue_USMC_VMA_231z      Marines VMA_231 "Ace of Spades"
Blue_USMC_VMA_311z      Marines VMA_311 "Tomcats"
Blue_USMC_VMA_542z      Marines VMA_542 "Tigers"







OK The above pics have nothing to do with AV-8B thus far... unless some squad logos are implemented in future... but...

Step SEVEN ( optional ): add the lines to XTD\ i18n \ regInfo.properties:

Code: [Select]
ma01        <none>

Blue_USMC_VMA_211z      Marines VMA_211 "Wake Island Avengers": AD-4N 1952-57; A-4 1957-89; AV-8B 1985-16-> VMFA_211, F-35B 2016+
Blue_USMC_VMA_214z      Marines VMA_214 "The Black Sheep": A-4 1962-89; AV-8B 1989+
Blue_USMC_VMA_231z      Marines VMA_231 "Ace of Spades": AV-8A 1973-85; AV-8B 1985+
Blue_USMC_VMA_311z      Marines VMA_311 "Tomcats": A-4 1958-88; AV-8B 1988+
Blue_USMC_VMA_542z      Marines VMA_542 "Tigers": AV-8A 1962-86; AV-8B 1986+

...here is what I am up to:

RTB

..now I've got a lot of rides programmed: a lot to choose from.
Leave A4 which will stay there for 10hrs + !
                                                                                                                          ... yes it will ( = taxi wait ).

OK Here it is: I select this AV-8B and in I go... ( note the skin pre-selected and top of the wings are clean... )
                     
   ..I hopped in, then BUG ! Marks are now turned on !
 
   I tried every conceivable trick in the book. Eventually the only trick that worked: select a nation that has no marks:  "Marine nation" was born.

PS: this MA country does not branch; so it can eventually have it's own speech file variant, or it's own menu sample music for Single missions. (Check Post 3)

OK  Din't think much of it, but then again take a look at this:

Single Missions \  Brief  \  ...  \  Arming Screen   

Insigna and RegInfo.Properties line information do appear in single mission briefings !

Hi everyone,
a few new countries just for fun, they are not perfect but if anyone is interested, here is the link:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ngVtdK6jyzfGarlVxucYhYDXl83RxQqV/view?usp=sharing
national markings works only if you place them in GenericRed or GenericBlue files.
I wish to extend special thanks to Alex840 and Hubberranz,
//New RED
Gabon, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Oman, Rhodesia, Tristan da Cunha :P



I hope Hubberranz will not mind that I put my post here.
Regards,
Piotrek

GenericRed or GenericBlue files.  o_O Will have to give this a try.

Active markings ! I never got to do that and I am with it since Gaston start it 10 years ago !

The hole idea of my Marines was to have no markings. Hé Hé.

Hi Hubberranz,  I think explained that in a bad way :-[, these countries work like yours mod , without any visible nationality signs, but using Generic Red, Generic Bleu files, they have become visible in the game.
I use this mod :
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38235.0.html
I don't know how in #SAS_Forgotten Countries but in this mod the files Generic Red, Generic Blue they are:
BU file -   Generic Blue       BlueRoundel, BlueTail,  BlueWing
RD file -  Generic Red        RedRoundel, RedTail, RedWing

Best regards,
Piotrek
