Sniper Turret Gunner Fix v 1.1
« on: January 16, 2011, 03:23:03 PM »

This one has been a long time coming ;)

This mod will make AI turret gunners use the same parameters against player aircraft as they do against AI planes.

Long story short, you will no longer find a bulls-eye painted on your face when you approach AI bombers.

Skill levels still apply, but overall AI turret targeting is now much more realistic, with shots hitting your airplane, not you.

NEW VERSION: This version (1.1) combines the Sniper Turret Gunner Fix, Riken's Faster Turrets Fix, and a much reduced turret range at night (21:00 to 5:00).

Download v 1.1: http://www.mediafire.com/?yt1ipw6jncpzpmt

Just unzip to your mods folder.

We are still testing in 4.10, but early trials indicate that this mod is 4.10 compatible as well.

Neither version will interfere with CERT_AI, CTO, Frog's Formation Mod, or Zuti MDS.

Thanks to:

Malone for extensive testing (also thanks to his beta testers).
Beowolff for additional testing.
SAS~Riken for his faster tracking turret mod.

Have fun!

CY6.

The mod part that I did (with alot of Storebror's help) was to change the speed of the turrets when they move around. The stock version took around 25-35 seconds to rotate around from the rear facing position to attack a head oncomming fighter. Now, this part of the mod will light a fire under the arses of those gunners and make them more responsive to a more realistic speed. This also means that if you are flying that fighter plane, you might not want to come in dead on to attack in a straight flight line. ;) You'll have to move around a bit to avoid the incomming rounds. This works on all ai gunners.

Feedback is appriciated! ;)

Nope, the turret code is in the FM classfile, it will not affect any AI mods, or any other mods AFAIK :D

i've had the pleasure of testing this for a few days, and i can just say it's made the world of difference to me.... :D ;D :D ;D :D ;D
i'm now actually experiencing getting shot up by turret gunners, and taking damage, even tumbling from th skies, but at least now, most of the time, i'm still alive to experience it!  :D ;D
the regular sniper headshots from an unrealistic distance, seem to now be a thing of the past...you'll still take a hammering in amongst bomber formations, but no more the instant pilot headshot, or at least, very seldom, as would be much more realistic!
to me, one of the all-time great mods, most-needed and most appreciated!
bloody marvelous, old chap!  8) 8)

i don't normally do things like rate mods, but this one is truly special to me,
and so i am, for the first time in SAS history, awarding this mod with no less than 5 gold stars!
for pure epicness!  :D

I figured Malone would go into orgasmic bliss over this.
I cant wait to try it for myself.
