Title: Request - Hot Dirty Love for BAT
Post by: crazyrock773 on August 03, 2021, 11:09:46 PM
I don't know if this is the right place to post this but I would appreciate it if someone would adapt PhilK's Hot Dirty Love for B.A.T.

Here's the link for the campaign if anyone's interested: https://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=46

the title of this thread is clickbait, okay?

I converted the "original" campaigns by Phil, so I might have a look, but that may take considerable time for me. Maybe someone else is faster.

How is it clickbait?  That's literally the title of the campaign.

I had a go at updating this for BAT:

changed:
-map from LAL_Okinawa to OkinawaLAL because that's what's in the mapmod folder of Bat. (I'm assuming these are essentially the same and the first is just the 'old fashioned' circa 2008 spelling?). I didn't fly around too much to be honest just made sure the missions loaded without sinking or exploding planes

-In the chiefs section, the syntax for some ships including the CV's was wrong (was ShipPack instead of Ships)

-Weapons loadouts for Corsairs in Mission 7 and B6N2 in Mission 17 needed updating

-removed _ru file extensions

Note - the missions all load extremely slowly for some reason, but they do load.

Cool, but please note, there are a couple of static ships amiss, most prominently

###Stationary ships.Ship$USSBBGeneric not found!

You should replace this with an appropriate late US BB, since the ships are doing shooting action.

#the other one is
###Stationary ships.Ship$HospitalShip not found!

I think that one exists under a different name.

missing static objects do not prevent mission loading, they just are not present.

These missions on Okinawa are the densest in ground action I have ever seen. No idea how they played over ten years ago but this is about the upper limit possible...

Phil must have animated every manhole and fire pit on that island.

He sure does appear to have liked to pack things in there. You didn't feel cheated by a PhilK campaign, full value for money

Here is version 2, please check:

I just noticed there are some missing skins files. Would this also affect the loading times?

No, you just don't see the skins then. The loading time is defined by the insane amount of content to load.
