    Is it possible to regroup missions?

    Post by Technopiper on Sat Aug 15, 2015 11:10 am

    I would like to regroup all desert missions into a single campaign "folder", so that I don't have to look for them after enabling Weather Africa Mod. Is it possible to do so without affecting file integrity? For example, would the game fail to find certain resource if I move the mission files?

    This is an interesting idea. Are u going to compile all missions? I mean for GER, GBR, USA? (or even for USR, if any). As my point would be better to make a separate Campaign, ie "African Corps".
    Is it possible to do so without affecting file integrity?
    No.
    ..would the game fail to find certain resource if I move the mission files?
    Yes.
    If u want to make compilation ie "Desrt missionas", then u have to do the next:
    1. open file:
    data\k42\loc_rus\levels\levels\camp\camp_list.engcfg
    2. add the entry:
    //Desert missions, compiled by Technopiper
    camp\desert_missions.engcfg, cm_desert,txt_cm_camp_desert,true,img_user7;
    3. create file:
    data\k42\loc_rus\levels\levels\camp\desert_missions.engcfg
    4. add entry:
    cm_desert()
    {
    desert_01, Rezegh_missn, 1, 0, rezegh.jpg,cit_rezegh, 22, txt_Rezegh_hist,dak01, levels\levels\cm_pack_desert\Rezegh.level,,,,,rommel.ogg;
    }
    5. create folder:
    data\k42\loc_rus\levels\levels\cm_pack_desert
    6. copy here file: Rezegh.level
    7. create folder:
    data\k42\loc_rus\levels\levels\SCRIPTS\cm_pack_desert
    8. copy here files:
    Rezegh_loc_data.text
    Rezegh_scripts.engscr
    Rezegh_zones.engcfg

    Yes, it is an interesting idea!

    I think that at least, in the name of the mission, together with the name of the player tank, there should be an indication about if it is recommended to activate a weather mod to play the mission. Perhaps a short code could be used like:

    W - winter
    WnS - winter no snow
    S - scorching summer
    A - autum
    AL - autum late
    ES - early spring
    D - Africa , desert

    Something like that would be very useful!

    It's already done. Many missions has recommendations, ie Across from Pyrgos:
    Before dawn on 18 November 1942, British Eighth Army launched a surprise attack, advancing west from its base at Mersa Matruh and crossing the Libyan border near Fort Maddalena, some 50 miles (80 km) south of Sidi Omar, and then pushing to the northwest. Eighth
    Army were relying on the Desert Air Force to provide them with two clear days without serious air opposition but torrential rain and storms the night before the offensive resulted in the cancellation of all the air-raids planned to interdict the Axis airfields and destroy their aircraft on the ground.

    Recommended:
    - balance is "5", max balance is "6"
    - install "Africa weather" mod

    Thank you for the very detailed steps, lockie. That's helpful for someone with no knowledge of mission editing. Desert missions are the only ones that specifically require a weather mod, so that idea came up.

    And what about the polygons data: they are located in 3 different GMPs.
    What do you think about GMP #4 for all African and Western Front missions?

    Each GMP has polygons as a base for the missions. It does that all GMP's are independent. U may install only GMP1.x and it'll be fully functional without polygons from GMP2.x and GMP3.x

    What do you think about GMP #4 for all African and Western Front missions?
    I don't think it's a good idea. Why we should join together desert and western missions? There are some missions where GER vs USR (Austria, Checkoslovakia), should we join them also as western?  From the very beginning GMP was made as a compilation pack with a missions without any common sign.
    Speaking frankly, I'm still hesitating to make GMP4.x The game is getting older and popularity goes down. At this moment GMP's has ~150 missions. It's more than enough for the newcomer. As for missions. The speed of the mission creating is no more than one per month. The main idea is make missions on the already prepared polygon, coz creating a new polygon takes ~three months. I'm working with a new polygon with mission Fury, but I don't know when it'll be ready. There should be the main object - building, where the final battle took place. It does we've to make this house and of course, it'll take a time. It would be easy for me, just place a new mission with polygon in GMP2.x
