Attack Ground Targets Order Range Increase v 1.0
« on: February 23, 2011, 04:37:24 PM »

This mod (inspired by Slikk), will increase the range at which your wingmen will "see" ground targets when you give the "Attack Ground Targets" order.

They will now pick up targets at 8000m, rather than 3000m, which should lead to less "Unable to comply" messages, and make torpedo runs, dive bombing, etc, easier.

This mod does not affect "Attack Bombers" or "Attack Fighters" commands. It should work in 4.10. It should be compatible with Frog's Formation Mod.

===============================================

Download (v 1.0): http://www.mediafire.com/?7c9u1lcb7ekc9ee

Thanks to Slikk for coming up with the idea and for testing.

CY6.

Dude, your my hero. I hated the "Unable to comply" crap. Thank you VERY much. :)

Great idea! Thx a lot again!

Edit: And it doesn't conflict with Zuti, at least at a class file level. Awesome for coops in my squad.

Great work as always CY6. Is there any way to make the range dependent upon the mission weather? ie range 8,000m in clear weather but 3,000m (or less) in rain or snow?

Thanks!  It's always been frustrating to have EVERY member of your squadron extremely nearsighted!

I don't think that's really necessary, since if you can see the ground units to give the order then presumably you would be able to tell your squadmates where they are as well.

Thanks! No more cycling through commands while I'm already halfway into the bomb run.

Thanks for the great improvement you are giving at the more diseregarded aspect of the game....the AI behaviour and all it's surround environment!

Finally after many years of modding the game begin to look more 'human'!!!!

All the best!
