Default [REL] MightyFine Crew Mod

New Version 1.2.1
released 22 March 2010.

Confirmed. New version fixes the non-responsive aft hydroplane operator from v1.2.


Added command-based behaviors and sound effects.

Commands currently implemented:
Dive - bridge cleared, engine changeover, tanks flooded, hydroplane orders
Surface - tanks blown, hydroplane orders
Periscope Depth - if on surface, dive sequence, else just hydroplane orders
Snorkel Depth - if on surface, dive sequence, else just hydroplane orders
Emergency Surface- all tanks blown
Crash Dive* - bridge cleared, engine changeover, tanks flooded, hydroplane orders
Set Depth (clicking depth gauge) - just hydroplane orders


***NOTE***
With the addition of command-based actions, the commands matter more now. If you change your depth by clicking on the depth gauge, the commands 'dive, surface' etc, will not be triggered and the new behaviors will not occur. To get the full effect of this mod, use the commands, either by mouse click or hotkeys. You can still use the depth gauge for changes other than dive/surface.

***NOTE 2***
The stock Crash dive command has a problem and does not trigger the crash dive script, so my crash dive behaviors will not trigger. I have included an optional workaround that uses the set depth command to trigger crash dive. Using that option, changing depth via the dive gauge will trigger a crash dive if the boat is on the surface, no matter what depth you click, so use with caution.
The override should be installed after the main mod package and should never be used by itself.


***NOTE 3***
This will conflict with some sound mods, notably those using Das Boot sound clips. Everything will still work, but the sounds may not play or be different than intended.

MightyFine Crew Mod for Silent Hunter 5
================================================
Version: 1.2.1
Author: Heretic
Date: 22 March 2010


Description
===========
This is a mod for the crew AI to make them behave more realistically. Currently, it addresses only the bridge watch and control room crew. Future versions will include changes for other crew members for surface and submerged cruising, surfaced and submerged battle stations, being attacked and/or damaged, and damage control.



This mod is an improvisation using animations that were not made for the uses I'm putting them to. Because of this, there will be occasions where things don't line up perfectly and you'll see more clipping. The game has no collision detection so crewmen will sometimes walk through each other. I've tried to add timing logic to minimize this, but it's still going to happen more often than not.

There are no animations for climbing ladders or going through hatches, crewmen teleport. I have added animations to try to make that transition a little less jarring. It's a workaround. Don't expect too much.

I think some of the stock heads are gamey or just look too old, so I changed them. Some of the changes no longer fit with the storyline, ie the eyepatch. I changed the WO only because his head was too big for a hat. Either ignore the inconsistancies or use the stock version.



You can choose from stock or alternate heads. Beards are provided for each option. You can start out with beards or you can choose the no beards option to start your patrol and switch over to the beard option whenever you think appropriate. I'd eventually like to make the beards 'grow' over time. In the meantime, it's a manual process of swapping out one mod version for another.


Install only one version at a time.
1. MightyFine Crew Mod 1.1 Stock Head - Stock character heads
2. MightyFine Crew Mod 1.1 Alt Heads - Alternate character heads
3. MightyFine Crew Mod 1.1 Stock/Beards - Stock heads with beards
4. MightyFine Crew Mod 1.1 Alt/Beards - Alternate heads with beards


Save game compatible. You can change between versions at any time.


Installation
============
Install and uninstall with JSGME.
Install only one version.


Known Issues or Bugs
====================
Due to a stock bug, the crew sometimes doesn't move inside when submerged.



Incompatibility
===============
The mod is incompatable with any mod that touches the same files as well as any mod that changes the crew body parts or waypoints. Texture replacers are fine.


Contact
=======
Problems issues and comments can be directed to me on the Subsim.com forums release thread: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=163591 or via PM.

Wonderful, thanks!

Just to inquire - any luck with adding crew to the interior? Is that something in the works, or have you run into any difficulties?

I haven't tried yet. I suspect it'll be quite a bit more involved. I used an existing crewman for the bridge watch. He also mans the flak gun.

Aquestion just occurred to me, is your/my character never represented in the game as a 3d character, like when using the external camera trying to look back at yourself?

Which will always make you disappear from the top of the conning tower when using the external camera?

Looks great! it may seem kinda odd to have the crew calling him the "pirate" and having conversations about his eye patch if there is none however. lol

Did you by chance remove his medals? It bugged me that his profile said no medals and I can see them on his chest.

Yeah i was about to say... the crew talk about the "pirate" on board.

Captain: "What do you think of our new XO"

Cook: "Who.. the pirate?"

LOL

There could be other reasons to call him pirate?

There is a conversation with the sound man where he questions having a guy with an eye patch, and you tell them BdU must have had their reasons or something. I have a feeling that there will be more on that topic in the story.. so until the story can be edited or removed, then no eye patch is almost worse then having one! lol

If you want the eye patch back, change "strategy CR_SO_01_NORMAL(wp)" in file Crew_Idle_Actions_CR.aix back to how it is in stock. The XO doubles as the Captain in the tutorial. They just change his appearance.
