Default [REL] SH 5 Lifeboats



SH5 Lifeboats 2.11

This mod adds Sh 5 lifeboats to destroyed ships. They spawn using the same system as in SH 4. Most ships spawn 0-1 boats, larger 1-3, but some rare ships may spawn even 15 lifeboats.

This mod will create lifeboat entrys to the roster for all nations and adds two new ships to the data/Sea folder. SH 5 Spec ops boat simulates both small and large lifeboats. TDW's additional animations are stored in scripts folder.


Note:

Mod contains lifeboat sounds. There are two wav-files included, one is made by Rubini (only used 30 sec to get smaller file), and other by me.
This mod uses OHII 1.4 sh.sdl-sound file for maximum compatability.

Installation:

Install with JSGME.
To get the new roster changes to appear, you must probably restart your campaign, or advance to the next campaign chapter.

Changelog:

2.11

-fixed the faulty entry in roster "New Zealand" to "NewZealand".

2.1

-added lifeboats to all new OH II nations.
-changed the lifeboat crew appereance to represent regular sailors (no more German Spec Ops commandoes!)

2.0

-further stabilization by TDW and Stoainm
-additional animations by TDW

1.0

-added optional soundmod
-stabilization by stoainm

Installing:

Install with JSGME

Credits & Thanks:

Rongel - base mod
TDW - additional animations, lifeboat stabilization
Stoainm - adjusting the lifeboat floating effect
Rubini - creator of LifeBoatM1.wav (permission asked and granted, thanks again!)

Download version 2.11

Happy sailing to all!

Like I said, I think they skiped these because they bounce too much on high waves. Anyway, nice finding.. fresh meat for gun practice

Here is the lifeboats using stock 1.2. :



As you can see they do bounce, but it might be adjustable by editing the sim-file.

Is not much you can do, they are too small for the waves. A solution would be to scale them, but I dont think you can do this with the tools we have for editing.

Hi! Because I have to go soon away, I think I'll post the WIP public, so people can test it and comment it. I tried to adjust the sim-file to match Webster's SH 4 life boat fix, but it didn't looked too good, so go ahead and if you have better results please let me know!

And this might not be for every one, the bouncing may be too much for some, but I really like the lifeboats already! It's a small detail, but it's nice see when you sink a passanger liner, that there are some survivors too! High quality survivors!

Let's just hope that this doesn't crash your game....

good find, the old SH3 Liveboat mod have texture problems in SH5, and these are looking awesome, they give a important detail back, maybe we could also add high negative score points if you sink one ?

At last.... Good work.

Been waiting for someone to make these spawn. I looked myself, but had no clue how to achieve this.

Gratz

Posted a download link. I have to go now, so customer care is disabled for sometime. Please let me know what you think, and use at your own risk.
