Description


This is an add-in mod pack for FotRSU v1.8 mod. These have been converted, but not fully tested. If you find something amiss, be sure and let us know. Most of the mods have jsgme text, such that if you put the mod in the MODS folder and hover your mouse over the title in the JSGME application box, you will get a short text display of what it is or does. Most also have a Support folder with a ReadMe file - not all of them do though. This updated version includes flaminus' TMO torpedoes texture, with matching menu textures and torpedo textures. What you see is what you shoot.

The package is a JSGME set, and will place the add-in mod folders in Game / Extras / AddInModzPak_17h folder - You will then have to copy or drag the desired mod out of that folder and into your MODS folder for activation. It would not be nice of us to pollute your MODS folder with 30+ additional mods... - this ReadMe is in with the Add-In Mods.

Contents Listing
 
File Descriptions
-----------------

1 - 301_MoreDifficultAI00 = Alters a few settings in Sim.cfg for faster AI response
2 - 302_MoreDifficultAI001 = Alters AI_Sensors.dat for more AI aggression
3 - 303_MoreDifficultAI_Air = Alters AirStrike.cfg and IJN plane sns files
4 - 304_NoJapaneseRadar, which removes radar from most of the Japanese aircraft, but does leave it on the Kamikaze type airplanes, since they do need some help there.
5 - 305_LessJapaneseAirRadar, will have the various radars set to enter the game later, and alters some of the models used on several to where they aren't as strong when they do come online. Most of the H6 is not active until after January 1945 at the earliest.
6 - 306_StrongJapaneseRadar is the set of radars from v1.46 of the mod, where a date issue had them coming early to the airplanes, mid 1942. You will almost always have to crash dive and might encounter airplanes in the middle of the night in some areas from that time on. Very difficult to keep up with in some areas, and a definite battery killer...

Pak_AddInMods_ReadMe.txt


Read the ReadMe file:
 
Pak_AddInMods_ReadMe.txt

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++
***** ATTENTION: ALL 399 MODS ALTER THE menu_1024_768.ini FILE *****
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++

AddInModzPak_ReadMe.txt
------------------------

NOTE: These mods are for the v1.7 of the mod. Also note that none of vickers03's mods nor flaminus's mods have been thoroughly tested in this version. There should not be a problem with using Nippon Maru nor Nihon Kaigun. If you do encounter issues with the use of any of these AddInModzPak modlets, please let us know soon as possible.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++
***** ATTENTION: ALL 399 MODS ALTER THE menu_1024_768.ini FILE *****
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++

The add-in mods were removed from the MODS folder since there can be issues with a players MODS folder not "cleaning" itself properly with the use of JSGME if any one of a number of events might occur on the user's computer. They are now found in the Extras folder. You will have to pull or copy the mods in this folder into your MODS folder yourself in order to be able to activate them with JSGME. To reduce confusion later, it would be best to only copy over that which you will use, to help reduce the clutter that can occur in your JSGME mods list, whether activated or not.

Notice also that several files have the same number, such as "399_NoScrollNavMap" and "399_Same-Sized_HUD_Dials", while "399c1_NoScrollNavMap - Same Sized Dials" has a letter and number "c1" after the 3-digit number. The number signifies that only ONE of the mods should be used at a time. All three of the mods alter the "menu_1024_768.ini" file, and over-writing one with another will result in undesirable behavior, usually just resulting in the loss of one of the mods' changes, but sometimes can result in crashes if there are other components in the over-written mod that rely on that menu ini file. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! The letter "c" designates that the mod is a "combination" mod of one or more of the others in the package, but the numbering still designates it as the only one of that number that should be activated with JSGME. Be very careful with this.

- There are currently thirty (30) files in this "Pak", but you should never have more than eighteen (18) of them activated at any one given time (dependent) - yes, I did run out of fingers while counting. You can combine the 301-305 "AI" modifying mods to increase or decrease the various aspects of the AI response. The 306 Radar mod will overwrite 304 & 305. Read their documentation or JSGME notes for info on what they modify.

Rockin Robbins put quite a bit of thought into the numbering scheme, and we have further "refined" it. Refer to the "RR_NumberingProposal.txt" file in the Support Extra_Info folder for the early proposal, if you are interested. THE "399" NUMBER will now be used for ALL mods that alter the menu ini file henceforth forthwith, forward and all that other legal mumbo-jumbo... excepting the main FotRSU mod, of course... That is all!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++
***** ATTENTION: ALL 399 MODS ALTER THE menu_1024_768.ini FILE *****
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++

This applies whether there are other components to the mod or not


Also included in the pak is the "Research" folder, and another text file.
