 Title: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on August 25, 2013, 06:44:18 PM I think it's time to create a separate topic devoted to the MP 3.x ;)There are 25 missions prepared at this time.All missions were tuned and adjusted exclusively on the base of NTA mod.

Also I had to create a new unit: T-34/85+infantry, thus this mission will be available only for the next mod NTA1.7. At this moment, I may finish mission only on the balance 3, but I still try to improve my personal result ;)The second favourite one is Hard as a Rock(Pz. VI) To adjust this mission properly I spent for about one week. Now it plays smoothly and player always know what the next step should be done.(http://s5.postimg.org/l2wfhnggj/hard01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/l2wfhnggj/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on August 26, 2013, 11:13:39 AM Started to adjust a new mission devoted to sdkfz. 251. This mission request a very good skill of the vehicle maneuvering :) (http://s5.postimg.org/sids3urkj/sdkfz251.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/sids3urkj/)During mission execution I met one interesting case. Before, I was sure that T-26 armor was a real crap against 37mm gun,  but I was wrong :) At least at the distance ~700m the T-26 armor is quite suitable against 37mm gun  ::)(http://s5.postimg.org/oaizv3q4z/37mm.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/oaizv3q4z/)As u can see - there are no any penetrations.At the next try I was more lucky and managed to shoot a three soviet tanks from the distance ~600m(http://s5.postimg.org/p55jh4xzn/01bt.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/p55jh4xzn/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/yr3pb6ej7/02bt.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/yr3pb6ej7/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/62qr7yccz/03bt.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/62qr7yccz/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/tv02jhedv/04bt.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/tv02jhedv/)At mentioned distance T-26 is quite OK for the 37mm gun, BT-5 also ;)In spite of my great result of scoring, a soviet IL-2 covered me and mission failed :( Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on August 26, 2013, 08:37:14 PM Started adjusting with another mission station Burbin, where player has APC sdkfz 232 (6rad) under his control.(http://s5.postimg.org/yan32hg5v/bel02.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/yan32hg5v/)This unit is a bit stronger to compare with sdkfz 251/10, coz has a MG. The mission itself was a really kind of enigma for me, coz I didn't know - when the combat order completed. That's why, I added two additional triggers for the victory achievement and separated mission on two stages: capture station, capture village. In fact, it was original idea of the author, but as my point - it wasn't quite clear for the user.During mission I've managed to kill KV-2!(http://s5.postimg.org/ym4jf8wlv/bel01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ym4jf8wlv/)Also there was one moment. I knew that deviator liked to change the speed of the weather, but not at this time. Then I decided to continue tradition and changed weather speed. This is responsible file:...data\k42\loc_rus\levels\levels\cm_pack_mission30\mis_ger12.levelentry:Code: weater_speed = 0.010;Suppose, developers made a spelling mistake :) Instead weater_speed there should've been weather_speed ;)Anyway, it works. During experiments, I found out that parameter weater_speed is more reasonable with a value 0.010 , coz even 0.050 effects the weather cycle more faster.Some screenies from the mission: (http://s5.postimg.org/lkiupe87n/bel03.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/lkiupe87n/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/dt24qu42b/bel04.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/dt24qu42b/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/tfxzhy783/bel05.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/tfxzhy783/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/6siqbsro3/bel06.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/6siqbsro3/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: fabianfred on August 26, 2013, 09:12:50 PM From the install list i don't see the SPM 1.6 fix ...is that not needed now then? Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 26, 2013, 09:22:26 PM The T-26 has an arm_str of 2050 in the tech_cfg file that may explain why it's so tough. In my opinion it should be set at 2000.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 27, 2013, 05:01:21 AM I think the T-60 is at 2100.That's why I worked on the tech_cfg files. I checked all tanks/apcs and adjusted some of th exaggerated values down and for the bigger tanks upwards in some cases or lowered the arm_frail.I think some guys were trying to go for balance like they did in T-34 versus Tiger making the 2 tanks equal in strength...

If u remove NTA1.6, then u need fix_05. I just want to note that NTA1.6 was specially designed for the MP3.0. It is not a global mod as so-called SPM2.0 or Ultimate update.Previously, I made a mission-mod with all necessary fixes included.  But after ten missions I started confused which one should be first, second etc. :)Quoteand in the above list missions pack 1.0d is the name of the zip file..but the folder inside is named 1.0c ..!!My mistake :) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: Erich Ederer on August 28, 2013, 12:32:22 PM Please, can someone make campaing for Panzer IV Ausf H? Thanks Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on August 28, 2013, 03:04:56 PM Quote from: Erich Ederer on August 28, 2013, 12:32:22 PMPlease, can someone make campaing for Panzer IV Ausf H? ThanksCampaing? Well, compaing consist of 10 missions :)At this moment, for the whole history of SF existence, there are two campaings: Pz III, Pz 38(t). It takes too mush time and ... why don't u try it by erself? We may help ;) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: Kyth on August 29, 2013, 01:36:12 AM I think Rends was going to do a Panzer IV campaing : Operation Kutuzov (1943). Not sure what is the status presently. But some of those missions were released as a mini-compaing. Some time back. As I recall, the first camaping mission featured the StuG IIIG. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 29, 2013, 06:26:41 AM I think Rends is onto other things.I don't recall him being on the forum since at least Jan 2013. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: Kyth on August 29, 2013, 06:43:47 AM As for myself, the first step before embarking on a campgain is the 'presentability' of the tank, i.e. its exterior appearance. One look at the Panzer IV H with the default camo (goat-vomit green) and Ugh all thoughts of campagining were erased from my brain. I'm a shallow guy, dont you know  ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 29, 2013, 11:24:16 AM If that the only problem Kyth you cna solve it easily by applying Whukid's new late war camo to all models of the Panzer IV H.I will check but technically I am pretty sure it's doable. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on August 29, 2013, 11:40:23 AM Tried to understand what does shallow guy. Is it synonym of narrow-minded? Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 29, 2013, 12:40:59 PM Shallow means superficial, somebody who only cares about appearances not about content. Somebody who likes to "flash' but not necessarily show any depth....Kyth was half-tongue-in-cheek ( figure that one out Lockie  ;D) saying about himself that he is turned off from making Panzer IV H missions because the default camo of that tank looks yukie.... Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on August 29, 2013, 02:10:35 PM Quote from: frinik on August 29, 2013, 12:40:59 PMsomebody who only cares about appearances not about content.So, if I like i.e. WoT then I've a good chance to become a shallow person? ;)BTW there is a yellow-green-brown spots camo for the Pz IVH. Suppose it was made by Whukid.(http://s5.postimg.org/jlityzo5v/pzivh.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/jlityzo5v/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on August 29, 2013, 08:48:56 PM BTW that yukie camo was actually really used by the Germans.I saw a pic of a Panzer IV H in a museum with absolutely the same green and while camo.

Sorry for my english. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 04, 2013, 12:31:49 PM Have you tried pressing the g key to open the gunsight?

Ok I checked you need the BSSR2 ( excellent map) made by Deviator. Can you check your envs folder? The path is data/k42/loc_rus/envs. Open the envs folder and check if you have a BSSR2 folder.

Do you know how to use the Mission Editor to open or edit missions???? If you know then try to open the mission with it.If it crashes before it opens then it's definitely something that has change din the ME. It's not a new sound or  a missing file that's causing the ctds.OK I experiment .OI have the Mod Pack 1.0c in an old Ultimate install from last year. I enabled the pack and tried to open the 2 mission through the ME and both game the 001 screen .I tried opening other missions form the pack and they were all accessible through the ME. Thus something in these 2 missions is no longer compatible with the ME of the Ultimate and NTA 1.6/1.7.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 06, 2013, 03:05:17 PM I think we need to include into current MP3.0 a several missions from the Desert Mod. Of course, I went to the Kyth's topic to pick up some missions. Two were good and one was completely out of triggers, text, tasks. So, I decided to put it out. First mission was excellent - no problem at all, author - Stone2009 (Alex_poly_01),(http://s5.postimg.org/atrlm7rmb/gaz_01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/atrlm7rmb/) but second one - was a terrible mess. I named it as Gazala. Firstly, there were wrong contours and units place completely wrong. Lucky, there were source files, but the polygon didn't want to generate... Holy mother f....d shit!!!  >:(  :-[   :'( I'm talking abt desert1, finally I've managed to fix all mistakes in the source files and now being getting to the mission finishing ;) Anyway, I liked this mission. Author managed to do the hell a lot of work. I've never seen so much detailed area! (http://s5.postimg.org/ym0wxqtn7/gaz_02.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ym0wxqtn7/)PS This polygon and mission was made in 2008 year. Incredible! Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 06, 2013, 04:16:28 PM Oh yeah the Road to Sidi Rezegh as it used to be called. I played that one countless times before I manage to win it at balance 10. Excellent map and mission.

What the desert maps need are palm trees or even some constructions but I suspect they would need to be modelled first. With the small maps in SF the potential to make varied missions is limited. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 08, 2013, 12:47:29 PM And now I put my hands on the missions made by Iceman :) There are couple and one is about to finish.

That was a first mission for SF, which was made by user. The mission is a very hard-coded, even  for this moment. It's just out of my mind how did he manage to create so complicate scenario?  I adjusted mission and simplified it to avoid misunderstanding during action. Also polygon was tweaked and a cosmetic changes added.(http://s5.postimg.org/hys8xl9cj/otradnoye1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/hys8xl9cj/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/96u4c8yoj/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/96u4c8yoj/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/i39htxeoj/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i39htxeoj/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/o5h4kf34j/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/o5h4kf34j/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/5ef7a98k3/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/5ef7a98k3/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/xskmu4w43/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/xskmu4w43/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/vcitgae1f/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/vcitgae1f/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: Steiner on September 14, 2013, 12:43:14 PM I am testing old missions with NTA 1.7 , and I found that the early version Stug III gunsights (Fridericus 1 campaign) didn´t work properly it seems to be bad calibrated or something ??? .

Well, may be he should've taken a nickname as EXtreme :)coz this time a mission was extremely hard codded then before! Imagine it was made in 2007 year! I had to hex-edit a bit even a polygon, but it worth it! ;)The mission is a very hard as erself. I remember that I couldn't finish it originally 5 years ago. Even now with balance choice added, I may win only on the 3 balance and with KV-1(ekran) instead original T-34/76  ;D(http://s5.postimg.org/fabow5oyb/start.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/fabow5oyb/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/653c2aljn/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/653c2aljn/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/rssacqlxv/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/rssacqlxv/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/minblg1oz/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/minblg1oz/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/fgpdz8y37/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/fgpdz8y37/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/5xfp5sakz/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/5xfp5sakz/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/a7ud1dfo3/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/a7ud1dfo3/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 17, 2013, 06:22:19 AM Is this the one that was called Xream5????

The  mission started when a truck with shells came along the road tu u. Originally, the mission had only one balance, but now u may play various variants. Each of the variants is hard, but as usually 10 balance designed for the  diehard player :D I made a lot of changes and greatly simplified mission to get rid off confusing during mission tasks execution. As I told, inspite of all my contrivances the mission is still tough and requests attention. Now balance 3-4 is quite OK for me :) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 17, 2013, 09:19:25 AM Lockie what would be cool would be to have all your mission packs 1.0c, 2.0 and 3.0 merged into a mega pack.This way it would save having to enable/disenable various missions packs and possible file conflicts????---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I like to protect the bricks from those who shoot them....

However, if it is set in 1941 or 1942, the German tanks should use the early war grey painting... I think that for those 1941 and 1942 missions we will need a mod that turns all the German tanks to grey color, like the "return to panzer grey" SPM 2.0...Is the "return to panzer grey" mod of SPM 2.0 compatible with NTA 1.7 ??

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 18, 2013, 07:05:47 AM Easy to do permanently; just go into the texture folders for tanks and either paste over the feldgrau textures.I personally like Lockie, like the camo schemes but I understand that people want authenticity.Whether applying new skins or getting back to the original ones is just a matter of 1 minute of work anyway.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 19, 2013, 04:29:58 PM The campaign Belissa by deviator is about to be finished. There is only one mission with BA-64 left. And now this is the fourth mission devoted to BA-10. Once again I didn't use this vehicle never before. It's has a stronger gun 45 mm, but the sound of it I completely disliked :( I should replace it for something more louder. And a gunsight is out of my mind, too complicate, imho.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 21, 2013, 12:24:07 PM Here's pre-last mission from Belissa campaign, as it appeared there was left one for the tank BT-5 :)This mission was really funny ;D BT-5 is a VERY faster tank, I'd say EXTREMELY faster and has good armor (arm_ strength=2200) and a reasonable 45mm gun. So, it's some kind of rally with a gun ;D(http://s5.postimg.org/ig1cjhdw3/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ig1cjhdw3/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/chnj98uxf/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/chnj98uxf/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/8mk56obrn/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/8mk56obrn/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/vcj9znuz7/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/vcj9znuz7/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/imf1mkn0z/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/imf1mkn0z/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/sl0091wgj/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/sl0091wgj/)But there's one problem. A shell UO240 (high explosive) has a speed of ~350m/s, which makes him completely unuseful :(Here's a picture, a main shell AP has a speed 750m/s and works good, but in case with HE shell at the distance 700m to the target, u've to setup a distance in gunsigt at 2500m!?(http://s5.postimg.org/m8kuz7teb/wrong_01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/m8kuz7teb/) This is completely ridiculous and no fun, and no real.So, I decided to adjust a "bit" the speed of shell and made it as 600m/s and decreased armor penetration.UO240,0x01,%SHELL_HE%,20K,600,46,0.10,0.1,0,1,1,0,2.14,0.25,0.24,8,0.5,0.5,0.1,0,1,1,1,expl_gndm*,expl_techh*,expl_buildm*,expl_water*,expl_human*,fly1,0,1500,1,txt_shell_uo240,he_expl_pat,rico_pat,piece_pat,0,1,1,1,1,0xff40a807,3,1,30,SHELL_MED,SHELLC_MED; It's still hard to hit anything with HE shell, but at least u've such posibility.And here's another complain. This type of gunsight is a real crap.(http://s5.postimg.org/k5afrjtlf/crap.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/k5afrjtlf/)U never know where to the shell will go and what the distance is. I remember, I read somewhere that according to the soviet standard a gunner MUST hit the target from the 3 shots. Well, has being looking at this crappy gunsight I'd have made a standard much wider: 1 hit from 10 shots. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 21, 2013, 04:06:05 PM And finally the last mission from Belissa campaign. It has the name "Bird in the night" and devoted to the tiny soviet scout/apc - BA-64.(http://s5.postimg.org/wmlosge4z/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/wmlosge4z/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/n3bzyzqmr/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/n3bzyzqmr/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/4ca2otw2b/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/4ca2otw2b/) In fact, this mission has a very high status to execute. I think it's the hardest one, coz author thought that infantry was stupid and completely out of firearms. Well, it's not true. To be sure that infantry is a VERY strong and smart in SF, I'd recommend to test my mission "T-38 is a scout tank" from MP1.1(which was made in 2010). U'll see that tank is not a problem for the infantry. Also, the soviet apc BA-64 had a status as a scout unit, but gunner hadn't had a choice to put out erself and looked through the binocular. Now this bug fixed. D/l the last current_update (http://www.4shared.com/rar/LW8JQmkr/fix_spm_nta_17__03.html). Place it the last in line.Anyway, friends, the next portion of the missions is ready and LET'S HAVE IT!Ther're 6 missions added at the current moment.As usually, d/l the current pack to have a look what was done or wait when the final release will be proceed.PSDon't hesitate to send me by PM a quotations or history text to be as add-on for the missions. Of course, if u've any :) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 21, 2013, 11:23:26 PM Perhaps, Rommel will have a reinforcement with an italian pick :) Guess who made this model? ;)(http://s5.postimg.org/5u04e4q6r/f01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/5u04e4q6r/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/7n312gbdf/f02.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/7n312gbdf/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 22, 2013, 05:27:46 AM Nostro Amico Alessandro Locki????? ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 22, 2013, 07:51:28 AM Quote from: frinik on September 22, 2013, 05:27:46 AMNostro Amico Alessandro Locki????? ;DKostadini Maleshkiono  ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: LSM on September 23, 2013, 09:00:15 PM Lokеi decided test_update_02.

It was not liberated it was occupied by the Soviets who promptly deported the inhabitants who hadn't be evacuated and who had survived the last month of the war and the exactions of the Red Army.

I''ll keep doing it! ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: Txema on September 29, 2013, 03:25:26 AM Of course I do agree with Frinik: those areas were occupied by the Soviets with terrible consequences for a lot of people. It is also true that the brutal Nazi regime was removed from there.In any case, I just made a literal translation of the original text for the mission that was in Russian.I also think that those texts are there to create atmosphere for the missions, and in that sense I think that while playing one side it is OK to use its terminology and point of view to increase the inmersion factor for the player...Txema Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 29, 2013, 06:26:36 AM It is also true that the brutal Nazi regime was removed from there.

Yeah! What a relief it must have been for the people being "liberated"! ;DOk I thought we were differentiating between general background texts which describe the current military situation at the time the mission takes place and should remain factual and the mission text proper which of course includes the propaganda or terminology used by weither side the "Fascists Hitlerites" versus the " Bolschevik Asiatic Hordes".... ;)and point of view to increase the inmersion factor for the player...Personally it only increases by blood pressure when I see history re-written.... ;) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 29, 2013, 07:18:41 AM I may confess that Txema translated original text. I'm pretty sure that author deviator just picked up first suitable text and put it in the game. Of course, I may change it to avoid misunderstanding. (To say the truth, it doesn't make me bother too much :)) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 29, 2013, 11:18:24 AM No I am not suggesting we change it.I just wanted to make a point about perceptions that's all.... ;DOk let's draft the mission text: the glorious and peace-loving Red Army, defensor of the oppressed workers and peasants, liberated the enslaved masses of proletarians kept in bondage by the vile Hitlerites and their masters; the imperialist bourgeoisie of Wall Street and their lackeys the British and French colonalists. Spontaneously, the liberated masses took the streets showering their handsome, uniformed proletarian heroes with petal roses, bread and salt all the time vituperating the Fascists-Capitalists who had deprived them of their rightful place under the bright sun of the Socialist Paradise led by benevolent and kind-hearted Comrade Stalin, the Father of All the People. Our T34s, full of love for our Socialist Motherland and full of hatred for the Hitlerite Militarists, will belch copious amounts of black exhaust smoke to foul for ever the lair of the fascist Beast!

So, if somebody has smth. more suitable than already prepared - don't hesitate and put it on this topic to discus. The campaign Turen has 4 missions (two for german and two for soviet).

It was a bit complicated issue, but I got it :) As it appeared, a polygon Turen was generated on the base SPM2.0, where common_res has a bug as aditional non-informative entry bush4. From the very beginning, when I firstly applied a sunflowers in the mission defend faterland, I also placed a haystack(all models made by Maleshkin). Unfortunately, haystack had only 1LOD and wasn't correctly converted into the game. So, I commented it. Everything worked, but for some reason, it was un-commented in SPM2.0 (though this entry doesn't has description nor model) and finally a bug created :)Each piece(bush, trees) of flora has his unique number. When polygon turen was generated(on the base of spm2.0) a sunflowers got a number 17, because of additional bugged entry bush4. In may case this number was a palm, because bush4 was commented. Anyway, I got over this issue - adding additional spm2.0 compatibility sunflowers :)(http://s5.postimg.org/bc2dcsh3n/sunflowers.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/bc2dcsh3n/)Of course, I had to regenerate a desert maps, cos instead palms they had sunflowers  ::) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: frinik on September 30, 2013, 08:32:40 AM in SF for very simple problem there's a complicated solution! ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.0 Post by: lockie on September 30, 2013, 03:01:58 PM Two missions for the soviet side are already prepared.

It sometimes work.If it doesn't work open you game main data folder. Go to data/k42/loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/ once past that check to see if you see a cm_pack_mision folder present right under cm_final.  If it I present jut open it to make sure you have levels files in there. Then open the camp folder the one on top of your page. Open it and then opne the camp_lisst folder with notepad.Check to see if you have an entry that say something like ://Mission_pack_3.2 compiled lockie   camp\mission_pack_20.engcfg, mission_pack20,   txt_mission_pack_20,    false, img_user6;   } Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on October 06, 2013, 03:32:51 PM Quote from: frinik on October 06, 2013, 02:15:12 PMCheck to see if you have an entry that say something like ://Mission_pack_3.2 compiled lockie   camp\mission_pack_20.engcfg, mission_pack20,   txt_mission_pack_20,    false, img_user6;Actually, it should look like this :)Code://Mission_pack_3.0 compiled lockie camp\mission_pack_30.engcfg, mission_pack30, txt_mission_pack_30,    false, img_user9; Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on October 06, 2013, 03:35:19 PM I don't have the mission pack yet so I was taking an educated guess ;D Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on October 06, 2013, 03:54:34 PM OK to continue educated guess I have a hint how to change the name of the Mission Pack 3.2Open the next file by notepad:...\data\k42\loc_rus\text\Mission_pack_3.2.textfind entry:loc_rus(){//Name Mission Pack 3.0   txt_mission_pack_30() {Missions pack 3.2;}replace Missions pack 3.2 on MY SUPER-PUPER MISSION PACK 1000.5000!!!!!!!!!!!and saveThe final entry will look like this:Code:{//Name Mission Pack 3.0 txt_mission_pack_30() {MY SUPER-PUPER MISSION PACK 1000.5000!!!!!!!!!!!;}Start the game ;) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on October 06, 2013, 04:49:56 PM Started the fourth mission from Turen (once ugly day).

To provide MP to work properly the user must install fix_04. At this moment mentioned fix contains a non-finished lenin monument and I want to include a new tank Pz-IF also (which will take a part in the new mission Save general Frinikenko!). When it'll will be ready I don't know. May be to the end of October, may be later.So, the question - should I release MP3.3 right now with current fix_04 or wait until I'll finish all necessary adjustments?I think, would be better to release MP3.3 as it is at the current moment, but of course in the future a new objects and model will request a new fix_05. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on October 07, 2013, 08:47:46 PM Lockie you're both asking the questions and giving the answers????? ;)I personally think it would be best to wait a couple of weeks more to have the full pack rather than release it incomplete....

Better wait and suffer bigger losses now but then pounce on the Hitlerites when we are truly ready, crush them and thus reduce our losses in the long run.Remember Comrades " Maskirovka" is our best weapon!"Excerpt from Yarik Vernerov's  " Frinikenko's War Strategy 1943-1945" Thus wait for the full mod....But up to you Lockie! Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: Czarny_PLone on October 08, 2013, 10:10:10 AM Quote from: lockie on October 07, 2013, 08:31:41 PMBut there's one question. To provide MP to work properly the user must install fix_04. At this moment mentioned fix contains a non-finished lenin monument and I want to include a new tank Pz-IF also (which will take a part in the new mission Save general Frinikenko!). When it'll will be ready I don't know. May be to the end of October, may be later.So, the question - should I release MP3.3 right now with current fix_04 or wait until I'll finish all necessary adjustments?I think, would be better to release MP3.3 as it is at the current moment, but of course in the future a new objects and model will request a new fix_05.Hello veterans steel fury  :DI am impressed by installing the latest mods views  ;DSo the game is amazing and alive thanks to you modders for which I thank  :DYou can ask for a link to the latest fix MP3.3 + 0.4 for download ?Lockie _ In a week I drive to work on a ship in the sea, and therefore depends on me as soon as possible Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on October 08, 2013, 11:38:12 AM Unfortunately, monument lenin doesn't want to be imported in the game. Each time I see on the polygon three(!?) figures of lenin instead one  ::)  ???  :o This is the big stupid puzzle for me at the current moment ;D So, I'll put it out temporally. As for the new tank Pz-IF - it'll take me at least two weeks to import it to the game, thus it suspended.  So, I'll release MP3.3 + fix_04, but first I'll try to put in the game a field of corn. It looks quite acceptable and reasonable.(http://i44.tinypic.com/210y9n8.jpg)Hi, Czarny_PLoneI'll try to upload MP3.3+fix_04 during next two days.

It works with some bugs, coz I don't know how to superpose the center of object with s_root, thus there is a deviation when u track the corn.(http://i43.tinypic.com/dyt2me.jpg) Anyway, it works somehow. Corn has ~1000 triangles, which is too much, but 3LOD's compensate it. If somebody want to improve the corn model, then feel free to ask me for the source file. I would be glad to help and share my humble knowledge.

The main activity will take place in the village Polunino, July 1942. First mission devoted to the AA apc sdkfz 7. It was a big surprise for me, coz I never used this unit. The reason is simple - sdkfz 7 was designed against aircraft, but in SF it's almost impossible to hit any airplane.(http://s5.postimg.org/kt2c16q37/rzhev.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/kt2c16q37/)There will be a short video before mission start:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xuq1h7mppnw Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: Tanker on November 28, 2013, 01:26:36 AM These are in the current 3.3 map pack?

All missions needs to be adjusted:- translatedThere must be added:- briefings- backimage- mapimage (as I've already done above)- quotations- video- tasks in the cs_main() block- history text (already done)Apply all necessary fixes etc. Also I want to add on the polygon/map an additional symbols, monument lenin, corn.Hope after two weeks all missions will be included and we get a new MP3.4.Quote from: norm on November 28, 2013, 02:24:17 AMDo you drive the Sd.Kfz. 7?Already :)It's a very uncomfortable vehicle. Commander doesn't has a choice to put himself out and have a look through the binoculars, the shoots goes with abnormal speed and shells goes everywhere. After a couple times pressing on the space(fire)- u're out of ammo. Driver doesn't want to obey. He looks as a he has a paralysis on both hands :) The crew absolutely naked against the bullets. In short, it's awful.There are screens after gun of sdkfz 7 was applied.(http://s5.postimg.org/u6qwlsbo3/s71.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/u6qwlsbo3/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/i65gl249f/s72.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i65gl249f/)   (http://s5.postimg.org/cw0htrk0j/s73.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/cw0htrk0j/)\After a second mission was for the german side, I may say that StugIII/CD is not designed to fight against tanks.Well, I was sure abt it a couple years ago. May be more.

Just decreased the time of the shell reloading.It has a side effect - shell icon flickering in the right down corner, but there is effective way how to get it off. Simply press 1(select other shell type).This decision is more easy, then sitting before monitor and thinking What the hell???

So, install updated MP3.3c and then a new FebrUpd_2014 consequently.A couple words abt missions. Save general Frinikenko! (M26 Pershing) it's completely fantastic mission, which was made just for fun and for those who likes shoot the bricks :)Polunino, 12 August 1942, 12:30 (Sd.Kfz 7/1) based on the real battle "Rzhev meat grinder". It's interesting to test a new unit. Same misson for the StugIII(C/D) is a VERY VERY hard mission. It's playable, but lack of the MG makes this mission almost impossible to pass over. First, I wanted to change Stug on PzIII, but deviator(author) told me, that those types of the tanks didn't use in the battle. So, I decided to leave the original author's idea as it was.Sieg oder Tod (Pz.V ausf. G "Panther") a completely new experience for the user ;) You must taste this mission without any words saying! :)Polunino, 30 June 1942, 12:30 (Mk.III "Valentine") This is interesting and a very smooth playable mission, coz it has a small quantity of the units. There is a well-known tank Valentine under user's control. The combat task is capturing the hill. I'd say, this is a classic mission for the SF. Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on February 16, 2014, 06:32:45 PM Suppose, we shall see a new MP3.4 soon ;)At this moment my favorite mission from Polunino campaign is "Polunino T-60". It is a very hard and variable mission!I'm playing at the balance "3", allies "4", enemy "0"(3-4-0) and still got the loose ;D(http://s5.postimg.org/ij5mmvwur/t60_pol.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ij5mmvwur/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on February 23, 2014, 09:24:58 AM I have played a few missions of Mission Pack 3.3 and kudos they are well done and the new maps are very impressive.Both Comrade Deviator and Lockie seem to have been very busy! ;) I am very impressed by the touch up done on the desert maps; the addition of grass, bushes and palm trees really give a much better and genuine flavour than the vanilla ones. One little remark when you compare how sluggishly the tanks move on the sandy areas in game compared to how swiflty they were moving as you can see it in the intro ww2 docu reels you wonder why can't we make the terrain easier on the tanks?I really hope those new mission packs attract more players to SF because that game really deserves to be known better. I saw daskal who also plays or used to play SF, posting youtube vids of his missions on Panzer Elite on the SIMHQ Forum with all the latest mods ( Ostpak etc) and I couldn't stop commenting that while PE undeniably deserves respect as the dean of all WW2 tank sims, SF is better in almost very area .Just my own opinion....

Of course, it's possible to repair sand to enable more faster and smooth moving of the tanks, but I did it deliberately. I mean, I forced such kind of the ground(sand) to slow down the tank's movement.In fact, the original ground was exactly for the fast movement. Anyway, if there will be another complain to change the ground to provide more faster movement, then I'll do it.And here's a new campaign from Deviator Herrenhaus Pettend. There are four missions for the next units:- Pz V (Panther G)- SU-100- Pz VI (Tiger II)- T-34/85The main feature of the campaign is a winter mod, which is really need to be adjusted. And I will try to make all necessary adjustment to provide more reality. First of all fix all trees (third lod), add snow to all houses, ice instead water(by Stone2009) and shapka-ushanka/fur hat (by Maleshkin) for the soviet artillerist ;)All missions will be included into MP3.5. At this moment one mission is ready.(http://i62.tinypic.com/atoh83.jpg)   (http://s5.postimg.org/3ur20t4wj/image.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/3ur20t4wj/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: Tanker on February 25, 2014, 03:05:55 AM Lockie, I think it would make more sense for mud or deep snow to slow tanks down.  Why did you wish to slow them down? Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on February 25, 2014, 09:31:09 AM Quote from: Tanker on February 25, 2014, 03:05:55 AMLockie, I think it would make more sense for mud or deep snow to slow tanks down.Agree.QuoteWhy did you wish to slow them down?There are two reasons:1. This is a feature of the sand to slow down the units.2. Sand placed only out of the road. Means if u go along the road then it goes smoothly without sluggish, but if u out of the road - there will be slow down.OK, I see another complain and I'll re-done the polygon to provide more faster movement for the tanks.

It's almost impossible to kill them  :oThat's why I decided to add a couple SU-100 depends on the balance. So, I played on the balance "3" and had 3 T-34/85, 2 ATG 76mm and 2 SU-100. I've managed to destroy two APC(one from ~900m) and 2 KT,  but I missed the third one and got a shell in my turret :)  Mission failed, but I hope to complete it soon successfully :) Mission is quite interesting, coz u've to see where KT's locating and pick up a better position to hit them in the side.(http://s5.postimg.org/qnj9846j7/t34_pet.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/qnj9846j7/) (http://s5.postimg.org/qot71j8cz/p004.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/qot71j8cz/) (http://s5.postimg.org/c6vztjh1v/p006.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/c6vztjh1v/) (http://s5.postimg.org/v0hsqjf9v/p007.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/v0hsqjf9v/) (http://s5.postimg.org/bjx340k5v/p009.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/bjx340k5v/) (http://s5.postimg.org/4hz5htgk3/p010.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/4hz5htgk3/) (http://s5.postimg.org/ex5bqqdqr/p003.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ex5bqqdqr/)  Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on March 01, 2014, 06:22:18 AM This winter mod is really looking great.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on March 20, 2014, 07:56:18 AM U're welcome! Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on April 11, 2014, 05:05:03 PM Soon MP3.x will be added with four new missions(under common name"Tes") from Deviator. This is history text:As a result of the impetuous offensive, the Soviet troops, with a rush, captured the village of Tes on the afternoon of March 21, 1945. Trying to rectify the situation, the command of the 1st SS Panzer Corps hastily developed a counterattack plan, wherein the main purpose was to recover Tes and to check the enemy's offensive. This task was given to the 12th SS division "Hitlerjugend". On this basis, it was structured as a battlegroup (Kampfgruppe). The group consisted of 4 Jagdpanthers, 10 armored personnel carriers from the 3rd Battalion, 26th Regiment SS divisional maintenance company, security company of the Corps and one company of grenadiers. The Kampfgruppe executed counterattacks on Tes at 17.00, 19.00 and 20.30. All counterattacks have failed and during one of them 3 Jagdpanthers were lost due to the fire-portable anti-tank means ("Molotov cocktails") of the soviet infantry. On the night of March 22nd soviet troops, with a small force, attacked the positions of the 3rd Battalion, 26th Regiment of the SS and the divisional maintenance company to the west of Tes. The attack was repelled. At 8:00 the attack was repeated with a much larger force and after a furious melee, the SS men were pushed to the Bakonynana area.(http://s5.postimg.org/8t32yzh8z/01t.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/8t32yzh8z/) (http://s5.postimg.org/tr98x2h3n/02t.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/tr98x2h3n/) (http://s5.postimg.org/ui6kgl8ur/03t.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ui6kgl8ur/)There are:- two missions for the Jagdpanther- one for the SU-76- one for the SdKfz 251/9(early) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: lockie on April 12, 2014, 10:37:49 AM All four missions are extremely hard, except first, which I gave status as hard. And first mission for the Jagdpanther is more enjoyable, coz user take part in attack to capture the village. There are many targets: guns/spg and infantry, which should be avoided or prepare to "mission failed". The weather is absolutely amazing! I highly recommend to install mod "Winter no snow"(it's author default mod for the missions).All other missions are interesting also, but I don't like to play in the darkness and prefer SPG with MG ;) SdKfz 251/9 (early) is completely un-useful, mostly "thanks" to the "drum-gunsight" and MG absence :) I'd say this mission is for the real "die-hard" players ;DMission with SU-76 is a very dramatic, coz SU-76 a really weak unit to compare with Jagdpanter. Also there is only revolver instead MG. Second mission for the Jagdpanther has defensive character and not so dynamic. Personally, I'd change script for the units and quantity of them, but let's give this possibility to the users  8)To summarize, my choice is mission number one!(http://s5.postimg.org/upu7d3jtf/sc_01.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/upu7d3jtf/) (http://s5.postimg.org/65i82ddlf/sc_02.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/65i82ddlf/) (http://s5.postimg.org/fekechmhf/sc_03.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/fekechmhf/) (http://s5.postimg.org/7zv2k40lv/sc_04.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/7zv2k40lv/) Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: Tsohg76 on April 13, 2014, 06:08:26 AM Looks great cant wait!

The Jagdpanther is just about my fav german afv. Its combo of firepower (L/71 88mm) armour and speed make it a formidable opponent. I know it is a assault gun but I still wouldn't like to be moving forward over the battlefield against it. I'm really looking forward to these missions and many more. Steel Fury just saved my sanity after being cooped up with my two sons for two days during a Tropical Cyclone.                                       Thanks again and you and the Ukrainian people have my best wishes for your country and its borders.

Mostly this error does the absence of the file. Note that February Upd already included in the MarchUpd.I'd like to suggest:1. re-d/l MarchUpd 20142. enable mods in the next order- unofficial patch - widescreen- sound mod (NTA)1.1- SPM (NTA) 1.8 full(beta)- missions pack 3.6- marchupd 2014 3. Start the mission with Jagdpanther.BTWI'd be pleased if someone suggest the name for the missions, coz my fantasy is almost exhausted :)I've to say, that errors will be always, if there will be new updates/missions. Only in case, if the mod NTA will be finished and has no longer progress, then it will be stable and dead.

Once I seen that everytime I would see it again in the sights it would get very odd graphically. till I looked away then looking back it would come again until finally I couldnt see anything and couldnt finish the mission.

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on April 16, 2014, 05:57:03 AM I know; neither Raptor nor Geforce experience( Nvidia's counterpart to Raptor) have Steel Fury in their data banks.(I think the game is too obscure or not popular enough to figure).However the fact that the Catalyst Control Centre doesn't work for you is not normal.Have you tried uninstalling (through your computer' control pannel option " uninstall programs ")?)  and re-installing it? Alternately you could uninstall both your driver and the ccc and make a new installation as both are connected anyway.What ccc version do you have?

Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: frinik on April 18, 2014, 06:22:00 AM I have an ATI HD 7750 with Win 7 Home Premium Edition 64 bits on my desktop and CCC 13.12 with display driver 13.251 like yours and everything works well.MMMM did you do a clean installation|? That is did you uninstall the previous driver or simply installed the one you have on top of the old one?I guess you ATIlib is the ATI Library that you are missing or which is corrupt. I would venture that your ccc is corrupted/missing some files which is why it's not starting. Nothing short of a clean uninstall and re-install will probably solve it. Or you could try a partial Windows restore back to a time when your ccc last worked correctly. You may have installed new programs/software which may have affected your ccc registry.On a forum I found the following suggestion. You want to try perhaps:I just got an answer from AMD for a known problem with Catalyst Control Center and Windows 7.  Here you go.  It worked for me the first time after a lot of troubleshooting. How to resolve CCC not loading/opening when initializing it. Scenario: The user attempts to open/load the CCC through various methods, but it fails to load. The issue may happen with no changes to the system or a Catalyst driver update or reinstall. This is issue mainly affects Windows 7 machines.  Cause: Possible corruption of the Windows Global Assembly Cache (GAC). This usually requires the user to format and reinstall Windows. Resolution: This solution has been tested - reproduced and resolved.  Remove all ATI through programs and features in the Control Panel using the Catalyst Install Manager (CIM). Reboot the system in safemode and do the following: -          Delete all ATI folders in C:\programs files and C:\programs files (x86)-          Go to C:\Windows\assembly and sort by "Public Key Token". Locate the following Public Key Token "90ba9c70f846762e" that is -          associated with ATI. Usually only 2 entries. Delete the 2 entries. Note: the entries should be deleted (right click and choose uninstall) in safemode since regular -          mode may result in a permissions error. The 2 entries only show up in systems affected by this issue. This means that searching for the 2 entries on systems where CCC loads, the entries are not there. -      Shut down and re-start normally.-          Reinstall the ATI Catalyst package with driver/ccc bundle from here:  http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx Hopefully this will get you back in working order! Title: Re: Mission Pack 3.x Post by: Tsohg76 on April 20, 2014, 05:40:47 AM did that to the letter and still same problems. Shelving it for right now till I have more time to work on it.
