B.A.T. v4.1.3 UPDATE
« on: May 22, 2021, 05:54:57 AM »


NEW UPDATE   BAT v4.1.3

BAT 4.1.3 Update

A smaller update only in file size as it brings you two of the biggest machines yet to fly in the Il-2 skies: the B-36 Peacemaker and the Avro Vulcan heavy bombers! 

Many updates, fixes and enhancements are constantly enhancing the package. Mace's latest Beartrap pacakge contains several new interesting gameplay features.
And let me particularly point out the great variety of WxTechs awesome cockpit update mods. The place where we spend our free time gets better and better.

But there's some more, much more!
SAS~Monty27 is back and he has a bag full of awesome content: missions, missions, missions... Look out for his all new "BAT remastered" posts, coming up soon :)

Play them with BAT v4.1.3!


Requirements:

You need to have a working, clean BAT v4.1.2



Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/k550bdgtqpz6w2h/BAT_4.1.3_Update_v2.exe/file



Bugfixes:


All fixes for bugs detected will be available under this link
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,66634.msg728928.html#msg728928




How do I install an update?

1. download the file into a new folder
2. deactivate all JSGME Mods for safety
3. run the exe and extract into your BAT install
4. enjoy

note: A new set of .ini files will usually be delivered. So any changes you may have made yourself previously will get deleted.




general:


BAT Engine Mod fixes

-Engine Mod Motor.class fix
-LandAux fix
(by SAS~Storebror)


BAT_NG-HUD_v3.6.1 update

Another update by Whistler:
Most notable feature for most people will be the shift of the yellow C&C Ground Control messages to the lower bottom of the screen!





common objects:


Reindeers!
by max_thehitman

No idea why they were missing so long.



Carsmaster Grass v1.0 + Treatment

A set of amazing new objects to make grassy surfaces on your airfield, for avid mission builders!
Chose wisely as it can have effect on the FPS on the ground.

by Carsmaster
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,66444.0.html



maps:


-Reno Nevada - update, including Fallon airbase (Tom)

-BB_North_Vietnam_51st  - different (original?) layout with slightly different airfields and SA-sites, with VPMedia texturing
 comes in additional slot, chose your poison.

-North Vietnam redux (rework WIP beta) by Geschirrspülmaschine19



This map, although not yet completely finished, is already a most amazing upgrade for this big map. It therefore replaces the old one and will be updated along the way.






World at War:

planes:

Consolidated-Vultee B-36



I thought, adding the big bad stick to the Allied "46" lineup might be fun. It comes with a USAAF skin.
Find the full deal in JTW!


various updates and fixes
- Me-264 update (SAS~Storebror)
- Hs-126 full make-over and update (by mission_bug, DreamK)
- Fairey Albacore new FM (Vasya)
- CANT Z.1007 Early update to IES 3.1 model with skinnable tail, retaining the BAT slot
- B-29B made flyable
- Spitfire XIVC loadout fix

cockpits:
- CW21 sight update (by WxTech)
- P-40 early cockpit updates (by WxTech)
- Spitfire cockpit update (by ssn637)
- A6M2 cockpit update (by WxTech)







Other era modules new content      -    only accessible if you previously installed v4.1 Blue Edge and the updates :




DOF:

Farman MF11 Hydro


My own modification: taking gio963tto's Farman 11 and added a pair of swimmers and a new FM, et voila.


-Zeppelins Auto Helmsman update

You can now order the helmsman to keep altitude or keep a heading by using misc #1 and #2 keys.
The automatic heading is very helpful to manage long climbs and long patrols.

Zeppelins also have slightly altered ground position, which makes "take-off" situations possible without crashing a propeller.

These modifications are available in all modules that hold Zeppelins.


TGA:

- DH-68 Express integration, was previously only in WAW
- HP-42/45 new FM + cockpit update
- Hs-126 full make-over and update (by mission_bug, DreamK)


JTW:

Here it is. Magnesium Overcast.

Convair B-36 Peacemaker



Find a detailed manual in BATDOCS: "B36 Mod Manual.pdf"

Along come a few trial missions (Missions: Single (The Jet Age) -> US -> B-36)
  - Atomic Test "Ivy King"
  - Recon over Kamchatka
  - Snarkattack - War Games

Quote
The B-36 "Peacemaker" is a strategic bomber built by Convair (Consolidated and Vultee) and operated by the USAF from 1949 to 1959. The B-36 is the largest mass-produced piston-engined aircraft ever built. It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built, at 230 ft (70.1 m). The B-36 was the first bomber capable of delivering any of the nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal from inside its four bomb bays without aircraft modifications. With a range of 10,000 mi (16,000 km) and a maximum payload of 87,200 lb (39,600 kg), the B-36 was capable of intercontinental flight without refueling. Initially built with six R-4360-41 Wasp Major 3.500hp engines in pusher configuration, it soon became apparent that additional jet power would significantly increase performance. This led to the mounting of four J47 jet engines in double pods outside the main engines from the D version onwards. Earlier B series aircraft were soon retrofitted. The F version introduced a souped-up version of the Wasp Major, R-4360-53 with 3.800hp. Retrofit and change of equipment became an almost yearly routine throughout the ten-year service life of the B-36. While at first, it sported sixteen 20mm guns in eight turrets (some retractable), this now outdated defensive armament was removed in 1954/55 with Project Featherweight, leaving only a radar-controlled tail turret. Its greatest achievement however was, never to be used in combat. A job well done.

This Mod contains:
6 Bomber versions
Convair B-36B Peacemaker, 1948
Convair B-36D Peacemaker, 1951
Convair B-36F Peacemaker, 1951
Convair B-36F-III Peacemaker, 1955
Convair B-36D-III Peacemaker, 1955
Convair B-36H-III Peacemaker, 1955

3 Recon versions
Convair RB-36F, 1951
Convair RB-36F-III, 1955
Convair RB-36H-III, 1955

B-45 updates and family expansion:

The good old "JetBomber" gets company by some of BisonM's 3d variations in their own slot. But with a twist: I modified the cockpits to appear more bomber-like and cleaned of fighter material, updated the FM with corrected engine data and modified the skin graphics (It is a "Franklenplane", it is not completely skinnable by regular means!)

Hi thanks for another expansion. I only have no cockpits for the early il-2's, this was also when I tried it out in 4.12. Adding the 'Opening canopies' mod gave me the cockpits but no gunsight. Any suggestions? (PS no other mod than Opening canopies in #WAW3 this time, logfile gives: WARNING: ****( Unexpected txr reload (tfNoCompress16Bit,tfCompressMajorAlpha): '3DO/Cockpit/Il-2-1940Early/asd2.tga')
