As I said before, there are quite some entries already existing in BAT, but with different values.

As an example, in catapults.ini :

-in BAT/JTW :

Code: [Select]
[RwyCatTrap]
dCatapultOffsetX   1.6
dCatapultOffsetY   -20.0
catapultPower   19
catapultPowerJets   25
bSteamCatapult   1

[TrainingCV]
dCatapultOffsetX   17
dCatapultOffsetY   -35.0
dCatapultOffsetX2   5.2
dCatapultOffsetY2   -35.0
catapultPower   19
catapultPowerJets   25
bSteamCatapult   1

[OspreyCV]
dCatapultOffsetX   17
dCatapultOffsetY   -35.0
dCatapultOffsetX2   5.2
dCatapultOffsetY2   -35.0
catapultPower   19
catapultPowerJets   25
bSteamCatapult   1

and in your pack :

Code: [Select]
[RwyCatTrap]
dCatapultOffsetX 1.6
dCatapultOffsetY -20.0
catapultPower 10
catapultPowerJets 20
bSteamCatapult 1

[TrainingCV]
dCatapultOffsetX 17
dCatapultOffsetY -35.0
dCatapultOffsetX2 5.2
dCatapultOffsetY2 -35.0
catapultPower 10
catapultPowerJets 20
bSteamCatapult 1

[OspreyCV]
dCatapultOffsetX 17
dCatapultOffsetY -35.0
dCatapultOffsetX2 5.2
dCatapultOffsetY2 -35.0
catapultPower 10
catapultPowerJets 20
bSteamCatapult 1

the difference is in the "catapultPower" and the "catapultPowerJets" lines.

Also find some existing objects from the ships.ini file too, in which I found [RwyTrap], [RwyCatTrap], [TargetRange], [Windsock], [TargetBarge], [TargetSub], [TrainingCV] and [OspreyCV] but I did not check for differences, and probably (but did not watch for now) I will find existing things in chief.ini, stationnary.ini and technics.ini too.

So... what to do (it is an evidence that I will backup the existing files before any modification) ? Overwrite existing parts with your new ones ?

Gaston, thank you for taking the time to provide all the detail, very helpful indeed.

[RwyCatTrap], [TrainingCV] and [OspreyCV] originated in Project 85 a few years ago and recent experience with the F7F led to the de-rating of catapult power. Original BAT/JTW values are still OK but give an unrealistic catapult launch for the F7F's.

The new catapult settings in the T-Cats pack also work fine with other era appropriate aircraft such as the F9F's, FJ-3's, etc.

[RwyTrap], [[TargetRange], [Windsock], [TargetBarge] and [TargetSub] also originated in Project 85 and have been rolled into a larger suite of mission objects.

Great to see you always back up your .ini's and .properties files prior to editing.

Recommend you then overwrite your existing entries with the new ones listed in the 'Add_to_.ini_.properties_files' folder in the Project_Beartrap directory.

Thanks, mace. So, I will check every individual entry in the files, and delete the old ones I find to put the new ones.


EDIT


Has made as above mentioned (adding lines where necessary, modified entries in case of already existing ones, etc). Of course, made a backup of inis and properties files... installed, tested (a bit) and approved !

Now, I just hope these birds and complements will find their way in the next BAT updater !

Been waiting for this for a long time!!!
I did some Tigercat firebomber skins here:  http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2223
Don’t know how well they fit this model, but if anyone wants to use/modify them feel free
They don't. I had these skins for quite sometimes. Love them!                                WIP

ecf11 has worked his artistic magic once again and created an outstanding set of Cold War Sub Hunter 2048px paint schemes for the ASW/AEW T-Cats.

These 26 new skins for 8 national navies can be found here: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,61999.0.html
