    Changing The Time of Day During A Mission

    Post by woofiedog on Fri Sep 18, 2015 2:41 am

    Have been playing the "Budapest Offensive" missions of STA SF, Jan 45. And overall these are some excellent and challenging missions, but would like to try changing the time of a few of the missions to a night time mission instead of a day time mission for my own use.

    But have not been able to change the time of day with a mission and save it to the mission?  Wouldn't you just have to change this clock... to say 22, as in military time or a 24 hour clock?

    STA_GMP_3.3\data\k42\loc_rus\levels\LEVELS\cm_pack_mission30

    start_hours = 12;
    start_minutes = 0;

    Thank's for any help with this matter.

    A screenshot after change the "start_hours = 21" from "start_hours = 12". It is still daylight?

    Have you tried doing it with the Mission Editor?

    No, did it manually. Will try using the Mission Editor instead.

    Have been trying to use the Mission Editor to turn the daytime Budapest Offensive mission into a night mission, but still with no luck.  

    I know that it is something simple that I am missing when using the ME, but can not find a way of saving the mission after making the changes from daytime to nighttime for the mission.  scratch

    Here are some screens of the changes I made with the ME.







    Any help with this matter would be welcomed... thank's.

    Woofie, after moving the weather slider to the appropriate place to make the screen dark and clicking on the small tab night below did you click on the blue arrow that points to the left on the left part of the mission editor tab and immediately save? When you highlight that arrow it says "' set parameters of the mission"or something like that.

    Because if you don't then your changes are not saved.

    Yes, that was the winning ticket!  Cool

    Happy night mission and don't get spooked by the ghostly white tigers! Shocked

    Why don't you post your modified mission so we can try it too?

    Yes, there is something out in that vast snow dreamscape battlefield and the big question is... who is doing the hunting! LoL Twisted Evil

    frinik... Why don't you post your modified mission so we can try it too?

    If I had done all of the work that went into making this mission, then I would. But it is not my work, only a modification of someone else's work.
