Default [REL] Run Silent, Run Deep - The Campaign V4xx

Run Silent, Run Deep
The Campaign
V5xx


Run Silent, Run Deep, the Campaign (RSRDC) is a major rewrite of the campaign layers of SH4 and is designed to overcome the following major stock campaign problems:

The various stock battle layers (i.e. BurmaJawa.mis, BattleOfMidway.mis, BattleofGuadalcanal.mis, etc) are sub-standard, not only from a ship content point of view but also from a track generation point of view and in my view completely un-reliable from a game play point of view. The reason for this is that these layers are written in a Scripted format that is completely unreliable when playing in Career mode.

The various Taskforce, Convoy, and Merchant layers that are total devoid of reality.

The mission objectives are sub-standard and need a major rewrite

The Special missions are also sub-standard and need work.

RSRDC solves all these problems


Installation / Compatibility

WARNING

I do not look at very possible mod that is out there. If you load a mod up, after RSRDC or OM and JSGME generates a conflict warning and you go ahead and loaded it anyway and RSRDC / OM no longer works correctly, It is NOT my problem, so don't ask me to fix it, because I won't.

RSRDC V5XX Readme



Item1: All battle layers have been rewritten from scratch, using Pseudo Random track' generation. A Pseudo Random tracks is a random generated track file that is generates only once and along with hand edited changes that are not supported by the SH4MissionEditor, will ensure no matter when you start a campaign, the tracks will generate where and when they are supposes to.

Items2: Using the Senji Yuso Sendan Shi (Wartime Transportation Convoys History), by Shinshichiro Komamiya, RSRDC has recreated 1055 convoys from early 1942 to the end of war. (A copy of this document can be found in the support section of RSDRC)

Item3: Using the SH4 Batch Mission Editor v0.4' and custom script files, ships within the various layers have been recreated and the routes they travel have been change to have zigzags and various speeds. One of the key item is there is virtually nothing left of the stock layers The recreation of the ships within each layer is more realistic for that time of the war, i.e. your not going to see 4 Yamato in the same TF in 1943.

Item4: Every Patrol and Sink Objective file has been rewritten from scratch and now provides more detail information to execute the mission.

Item5: All Stock Special Ops missions have been disabled. New special operations missions are based of actual patrol logs.

Item6: ALL the Japanese Single Merchant / Convoy Layers using the random radius approach that I developed for OM.

Major Changes in V5x

- To ensure compatibility with TMO 18x/19x and RFB 2.x

- Since I haven't changed the spawn rate in awhile, there are major changes to the single ship campaign layer. This should make life a little more interesting.

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


Special Notes/Known Problems:

(a) For those of you who enjoy reverse engineering, if you use the SH4MissionEditor on the Battle or Task Forces layers, under no circumstances make changes or select ok in the Group Properties window. If you do, you will cause All the tracks within the layer to longer generate correctly. The reason is that I'm making hand edits to these files to ensure that the tracks generate on time

(b)Because of a design feature that prevents ships from spawning within 20km of ownship, you may see cases were historical events do not correctly generate. So therefore, as an example, if you are 15 to 17nm from the Shortland Islands during the Battle of Guadalcanal, some of the Tokyo Express missions may not generate.

Default WOW lot's of work there from the looks of all I read

Glad you got a lot of people together on it and managed to put out a larger package than you originaly talked about in the [WIP] thread for this!

Now let's hope patch 1.4 dosn't tear it appart on you.

Got an error that shows each time I load my current save game { also was present when the game laoded in base }
Current career started on 6th Dec 41 at Manila, when the game loads to 3d at the please wait screen I hear a windows error sound, alt tab out and there are two errors to clear

File not found: data\menu\gui\recmanual\covflagshoredefenses.dds

I clear both and the game loads and runs fine. Just a heads up to have a look...if it isn't your mod I'll try and track down which one it is, but I never had this until I loaded RSRDC

Installation

RSRDC is designed to be installed using JSGME, hand installation is not recommended. You will need to start a new career after installation and old save games will not be compatible with RSRDC.

Just one question. This mod has changed 41-42 shipping traffic. Once I'm into 42 and beyond, does the game revert back to the original vanilla version of traffic?


Sorry, second question: You have it as campaign meaning this is just for the campaign feature in the game or this is for the career function in the game?

BTW, this is just a great mod idea! Just beautiful!!!!!

This is very promising for sure. Nice work. I like the new orders typed out and a couple of mission objectives to cover. You're on to something here and it is good Off I go for more missions

#2 You know it is going to be a nightmare to make all of the new stuff ROW compatable right LMAO :rotfl:

I just added it to the end of my mod enabler list. It overwrote two ROW files. I believe reflections for two DD. Nothing else. ROW and this mod work just find together.

The new messages/orders are much more immersive. Really good stuff here. Nice kickoff to this mod. Hats off sir!

This looks really interesting, I will give this a try tonight some time. Just curious, were any re-writes of the abnormal DD activity changed from the 1.3 patch. Translation, will we still get sighted or detected by sonar ar very long ranges when we're approaching a convoy or task force? One other quick question. Are there mods compatible with the RSRD mod?
