Default [REL] Animated Fans (interior)

Animated Fans (version 1.0)

© 2007-2008 skwas. All rights reserved.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Disclaimer: Use at your own risk. Distribution, commercial use and or
(re)selling of this package are prohibited. Developed in 2007-2008 by skwas,

DESCRIPTION

This mod adds animated fans to the interiors of all US submarines. Note that some control rooms have 2/3 fans, and some conning towers have up to 2. I therefor made a selection and didn't animate all of them, to avoid too much CPU load and also because I liked to keep some fans static (turned off).

PREVIEW



DOWNLOAD

Stock SH4 1.5 (UBM) release - http://files.filefront.com/Animated+.../fileinfo.html
TMO compatible release - http://files.filefront.com/Animated+.../fileinfo.html
RFB 1.5x has this mod included.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. Extract to MODS folder.
2. Install with JSGME. With the TMO version, install after TMO.
3. Run game.

COMPATIBILITY

The title of this mod tells you which game version/other mods (if any) it is compatible with. Since I modified the interior files of all US submarines and also the SH.SDL file, conflicts may and will occur when other interior mods are installed on top. This may result in the animations being disabled again. In essense you should not install any mod that also modifies the interiors over this mod as this will disable the animations. Also, sound mods that modify the SH.SDL may cause CTD's if the fan sound entry is removed or vice versa.

Do not install an incorrect version of this mod either on other interior mods. This may lead to yet more CTD's. If in doubt, drop me a line.

If you play the stock SH4 v1.5/UBM game, get that version. If you play with TMO, use the TMO version. An RFB release will not be provided as it will be included in a future RFB patch directly.

MERGING THE ANIMATIONS WITH OTHER INTERIOR/SOUND MODS

See further down the thread.

CHANGELOG

Version 1.1 - 29-09-2008:
  • Some fans had an incorrect material assignment. This didn't cause any
    critical problems, but the affected fans weren't accurately rendered.
  • TMO-version: The Gato CR fan was assigned a material that did not exist.
  • TMO-version: The map on the table in the Salmon CR had incorrect UV-data, causing incorrect rendering of the map. (note: this was the original object from which the static fan was removed)
SPECIAL THANKS

vickers03 = for making the TMO version of this mod.

CREDITS

Ubi = for the original model that I split in two
jrex53 = for the idea.
LukeFF = fan sound file / testing

PERMISSIONS

Apart from the disclaimer in the header (which is directed at commercial use), anyone can use, modify and redistribute this mod, as long as it's free, non-commercial and the original readme is included. Have fun!

It won't be compatible with any of the major mods as of yet (TM/RFB, sound mods, etc). I'll do my best but it would be great if some other modders can help out. I prefer working on S3D again now... :hmm:

Making it compatible would involve doing some exports/imports of chunks, and modifying the SDL file if necessary so if anyone wants to try, let me know.

Great work!

We aimed to put something like this in the game, but wanted to stop them when silent running. No time

Those look awesome. Can't wait to install them, as my laptop gets pretty hot running the game sometimes.

Currently I don't have access to a clean 1.4 install available. I may do it, but only after I made it compatible to some of the supermods.

Yes, that's the only downside which also means the mod may be less interesting for people that go for realism. I am interested to hear from players if they find the extra environmental sounds of the fans too distracting as well. I tried to keep it as subtle as possible.
