[REL] Athlonic's MCCD "More Crew Commands by Dialog" MOD

Athlonic's MCCD "More Crew Commands by Dialog" MOD (for Silent Hunter 5 v1.2.0 Ready)


Version : 1.04
Version : 1.04 MFCM (compatible with Heretic's MightyFine Crew mod v1.2.1)
Released : 14 may 2010



Hi,

MCCD is a mod to add some (missing) commands by dialog and animations to our officers.
Like : returning to course, depth under keel, stop batteries rechaging, ...







NEW Installation procedure in 2 steps (JSGME ready):
Quote:

MCCD come in 2 versions, and 6 localizations install only one of each !
Versions, install only one :

- More crew commands dialog vX.XX : The Mod itself, english version by default
- More crew commands dialog vX.XX MFCM v1.2.1 compatible : if you are using the magnificient "Heretic's Mighty Fine Crew mod v1.2.1"

then install a localization if needed :

- MCCD vX.XX FRA : Addon for french version
- MCCD vX.XX GER : Addon for german version
- MCCD vX.XX ITA : Addon for italian version
- MCCD vX.XX POL : Addon for polish version
- MCCD vX.XX SPA : Addon for spanish version


Extract the archive in a folder of your choice,
copy only the desired version (and localization addon if needed) to the MODS folder,
and then activate the main MCCD mod first and then the localization with JSGME (confirm overwriting).
(help for JSGME utilisation here : http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=163447)

For compatibility with Heretic's MFCM : install MFCM v1.2.1 mod first and then the MCCD vX.XX MFCM version of this mod,
then confirm files overwriting.

Warnings:

Quote:
- it seem's you can install this mod while on patrol without problem, but I still recommand to :
* return to port
* quit the game
* install (or uninstall) mods
* relaunch the game
* reload the "back to port autosave"

- if you install a "MFCM compatible" version without MFCM (or another version than v.1.2.1) installed it will result in a CTD.

- on some occasions when loading a "on patrol" savegame, some speech won't play, this happened even without the mod.
workaround : reload your savegame again, or load an hystorical mission first, seem's to fix this.
Note:
Lots of work and testing left to do but it's a start.
Also it's my first try at scripting, so any help or tips would be appreciated.

Thanks to :
- Heretic and Elanaiba for their tips,
- Hansolo78 for german translation,
- Lynx for spanish translation,
- Jaxa for polish translation,
- Mithrandir for italian translation.

To do list (Work In Progress):


Quote:

Commands to add (if possible) :

- Navigator :
* search patterns (causing CTD right now)

- Sonar man :
* Repeat last report
* Report nearest ship (WIP)
* Report nearest warship (WIP)
* Follow nearest ship (report only bearing : annoying)
* Follow nearest warship (report only bearing : annoying)
* Estimated range to contact
* Return to swipping mode (not necessary following is a no go)

- Watch officer :
* Report nearest visual contact (doesn't work)
* Fire at will (command doesn't seem to trigger)
* Hold fire (command doesn't seem to trigger)

- Chief :
* engines controls
* depth controls

- Radio man :
* Radio's controls (doesn't work)

Fine tuning :
- make Navigator "report weather" available at periscope depth too (WIP)
- make Navigator "saying weather going to the worse/is improving" accordingly with actual weather change (WIP)

Superb, like stated earlier, really fit in well with SH5.

Question : Does installing this + TDW UI mods can screw some commands or there is no conflict?

very nice, it works perfectly here in win XP. I like being able to ask the navigator for depth under keel, makes him feel useful.

I presume you will try to add orders for the soundman, I would rate this as a priority, but its your mod.

very impressive.

Very good work Athlonic.
It's nice to ask them to do something useful, rather than how's the wife and kids.

Fantastic work Athlonic (and Heretic) although screenshot 2 illustrates why tabbed panels should probably be used if possible in the future of this mod, it would allow division of general orders/ special abilities/ chit chat and stop the boxes becoming huge in depth as the amount of orders increase. maybe the tabbed management screen could offer some insight into this?
Anyway brilliant work this far, definitely a must have mod which perfectly illustrates the devs original intentions for the game UI.
