Fellow subsimmers,

here is the beta version of the Soviet Campaign.

Here is the main information:

Soviet Campaigns (North Atlantic Red 1984 and North Atlantic Red 1968)

The mod is an attempt at making 1984 and 1968 campaign playable from the soviet perspective.

Playable submarines:

* wp_ssgn_charlie1

Each US unit has its own sensors, but no claim is made on sensors realism.

* Charlie II

Playable submarines in the 1968 campaign are:

Current mission types for enemy units are SSN_Patrol, Resupply_Convoy, ASW_Patrol

Credits: CaptainX3 for original model of Typhoon, Oscar and Los Angeles Improved with VLS, P500 and P700 missiles, Mk50 torpedo and soviet weapon sprites.

changelog:
ver 1.0 first release
ver 1.01 second release

- Merged files changed with version 1.05b.
- Temporary fix for asroc bug, with ship firing asroc but torpedo not dropping and missile circling over drop point.

- Slight adjustment to sonar parameters for US surface ships and helicopter
- Fixed ownship invulnerability bug

ver 1.01b hotfix1

- Fixed unsinkability of Perry and Knox frigates

ver 1.01c hotfix2

- Fixed Charlie2 bug that cause the game to crash upon selecting it

ver 1.02 third release

- fixed several errors in 1984 campaign and added 1968 campaign

ver 1.03 fourth release

- Reduced height of ownship icon on Condition display. Now bottom of ownship indicates depth of your boat
- Fixed problem with Charlie 1 and Charlie 2 damage control panels not showing
- Added missions to locate and sink Carrier group in both 1984 and 1968 campaigns

ver 1.03a hotfix

- created distinct models for early ASROC, firing Mk46 mod1 torpedoes and late ASROC, firing Mk46 mod5 torpedoes
- early ASROC associated to Farragut, Garcia and Charles F. Adams class destroyers, late ASROC associated to Spruance and Knox class escorts
- created late Essex class ASW carrier model for 1984 campaign, identical to Essex class ASW carrier but equipped with SH-60 helicopters instead of SH-3D
- adjusted warhead weight of light weight torpedoes.It will require more hits from Mk46, Mk50 and UGMT-1 to kill a submarine. Adjusted warhead weight of Soviet torpedoes and missiles
In case you want to let me know about bugs, please post here or send me a PM.

Some symbols are missing in the sonar screen and everytime I fire a torpedo, the wire breaks instantly.
And the US sensors seem a bit too good IMO.
Also, you can't die, your hull reaches a negative amount and you just spawn outside the mission area. (Was using a Victor III)

Thanks for feedback.
I'm merging files with 1.05b (which also happened yesterday) and fixing a few things.
I've kept the wirebreak as per original (only test-71 is wireguided though).
Which symbols are missing? I'll try to kill me in a campaign (which is not too hard ) and check the zombie issue.

Regards,
Aaken

The arrow symols and the check box in the sonar screen was missing. Now it's there.
I also don't like the damage controll scematic of the Victor III.
http://www.naval-encyclopedia.com/co...rine.id.ru.jpg this one is better imo, the colours confuse me in game.
And how weak did you make the soviet torpedos?
I've put 4 into a Knox and it's still floating.

I did not change vanilla torpedoes or missiles (except the ss-n-14, since I had to use it to mimick ASROC). Please note that patch 1.05 has generally increased torpedo and missile warheads with respect to 1.04.
Cheers,

Aaken

The Knox is unsinkable, I've put 5 in it as test, it will sink to a certain degree, but it will still move and shoot at you.
Radar does not seem to work, put the radar mast up and I got no contact updates.

Cannot replicate radar not working. Tried victor3 radar in a training mission and it seems to work

Updated with fix for unsinkable Perry and Knox.
Sorry, I had made a mistake. I gave to both classes the CIWS but the 3D model used (Kashin) does not have them and this created the problem.
