[MOD] BoBP East - career MOD

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Update v8d - 14/10/19:

 

Another small update:

If you select III./JG 52 in the BoK career, you can fly Bf109-G14 or -K4 right from the beginning and don´t have to use the trusty old Bf109-G6 against the allied planes.

 

Update v8c - 14/10/19:

 

Small update:

Fixed some undesired unit behaviour with II./St.G 2 in BoK by deleting the Fw190-A5 from this unit. II./St.G 2 now only has Ju87 planes available. Thanks to eastriverman  for catching that. Additionally increased the number of units flying the B25D bomber in BoK.

 

Update v8 - 06/10/19:

 

Now you can fly all the new planes, Tempest, P51 Mustang and P38 Lightning on all career maps, BoM, BoS and BoK. I also edited in the B25-D whenever possible and changed some unit assignments. Maybe I´ll increase the B25 presence over the A20B presence in a future release. However this already should give you a good mix. Additionally all allied planes, except the Tempest, are also available in a dedicated groundpounder role (ex-IL-2 unit - ShAP or GShAP) for best possible options. Have fun with the new planes and your career over soviet skies!

 

Update v7 - 01/10/19:

 

Added Tempest, P51 Mustang and P38 Lightning to BoK career mode to give you something to play in the next weeks. BoS and BoM will be updated when I get time, which is presently a little bit limited due to real live issues. Due to some changes with the 3.201 update all allied BoBP planes are only selectable by clicking directly on the unit symbol on the map. This does not affect the german side. Flying the career on either side is however unaffected. Have fun with the new planes!

 

Update v4 - 13/07/19:

 

Some minor fixes and updates.

 

Update v2 - 05/07/19:

 

BoS is now integrated in the Mod. You can now fly BoBP planes on all three maps (BoM,BoS,BoK) and use the career mode. P51, P38 and Tempest will get integrated on arrival. Enjoy!

 

Update v1 - 05/07/19:

 

I have now expanded the BoBP plane career universe to BoM. So you can now fly the BoBP planes also in career mode over the BoM map and the BoK map. Hope to have BoS finished in the next days also, so that you only Need to load one Mod and can fly BoBP planes on all maps.

 

If flying over BoM, I suggest to also use Maybugs excellent Moscow_F map mod (summer) and Moscow_W (winter) which enhances the feeling to fly above NWE skies. Get the mod here:

 

 

-----------------------------

Hi guys and gals,

 

in case someone is interested to fly careers in SP with the BoBP planes over the Kuban map. You now can do that. crigby46 was so kind to show me how to swap planes into an existing career and I thought it might be a good idea to prepare this little MOD for you.

 

Prerequisites: BoS and BoK, 109 G6 and Spit V necessary, I think you also need La5 (not sure). I have everything released by 777, so everyone else with full install should do fine.

 

Swapped into the careers were: 190A8, 190D9, 109G6, 109G14, 109K4, Me262A, SpitV, SpitIXe, P47D28, Pe2s35

Eliminated from careers were: 109G2 and G4 except AI unit (hardcoded), Hs129, 190A5, IL2M42 and 43 except hardcoded units, Yak1s69, Yak7Bs36, La5s8

 

So, if you are tired of using the BoBP planes only in QB, with this MOD you should be able to have some career with them going. I´ll add the Mustang, Tempest and P38 as soon as they are made available.

 

Installation: I suggest you use JSGME to enable the MOD. Simply extract the files into your MOD Folder. File structure will be (data/scg/15 and data/scg/scripts)

 

Have fun!

Bloody nice job!

 If I remember rightly, you can replace a collector plane in campaign (for example the Spit.V in BoK) with a non-collector aircraft, but that squadron will remain locked unless you have the license for the collector plane that the authorisation server thinks that squadron will fly.

 

 My first attempt to put the Dora into a career was over Stalingrad, and I popped it into the place of the 190A3, which I did not yet own. Because the career is online only, the server checked my account and knew I shouldn't have access to that squadron, regardless of which aircraft I was using. 

 

 You'll still be able to fly everything without the collector planes in there as far as I'm aware, just not from the collector plane squadrons, so if you seem to be stuck, try a few different squadrons with the BoBP aircraft of your choice and you should be able to get into one!

Hi,

I started the campaign on P-47 and when I arrived to the destination (river crossing defense) the word "Mission failed" appeared and I do not know why, maybe the reason was that the 2 Bf-109 had come too close to the crossing? I also started campaigns on the Fw-190A-8 in the bomber cover, in this role Me-262 (flew without bombs), over the target attacked artillery positions and then flew off a few kilometers from the target into the empty space and circled completely senseless. Spitfire appeared which was shot down. After a few minutes I decided to return to the base myself because Me-262 still behaved unintelligible, unfortunately also this mission ended in failure. I wonder what the problem may be?

Hi 8ELT_Grzesiek,

 

that plane behaviour is indeed hard to explain for me, because all I did was replacing the Fw190A5 with the Me262A and replacing the La5s8 with the P47D24. So unit path scripting and AI behaviour was untouched. Could well be, that the AI for the Me262 is yet incapable of doing Jabo work. I try to put the 262 in another "fighter only" squad and see what happens. 

 

Ok, I switched over the 262s from II./SG1 (Jabo) to 13./JG52 for a more fighter centric role. I guess that is all I can do. V2_Mod is attached.

Well I thought: WTH why not have the Me262 in both roles just for the fun of it?

 

1.) 262 fighter role = 13./JG_52 (262 replaced 109)

2.) 262 bomber role = II./St.G.2 (262 replaced Stuka)

 

Have fun!

The problem is probably something other than Me-262. Yesterday, flying on D-9, I escorted the group Fw-190A-5, after reaching the target they flew around the circle without attacking ground enemy units and of course they did not have suspended bombs. I decided to destroy all AAA but that did not help, Fw-190 still circled without a goal.

I see. That leads me to believe that the behaviour you mentioned is either AI or scripting related. Neither AI nor scripting was touched in any way by swapping in/out planes, as that is the only thing the mod does. If you can observe/reproduce such behaviour, even in the unmodded game, that would certainly be of interest for the devs.

This is awesome. I have two careers going in Kuban and Moscow. More fun than I've had in a long time. Thanks for this, sevenless.

Wow! Works like a charm & so easy to install! May I ask one question:  does this also install the newer planes in opposing forces? The reason I ask is that I have been playing a 109 campaign in Kuban theater of operations- after the install and in the first mission played after it  I saw Spitfire V’s ,and P-47’s for the first time,making my life in the Luftwaffe much more dangerous...

Maybe they would have showed up late in the campaign anyway,I don’t know, but here they are...I’m just saying....

Hi mate, glad you like it. Yes it installs both german and allied planes of BoBP on all three maps, so as a german you fly against Spitfire Vs and IXs, P47s and A20s. Mustangs, Tempests and Lightnings will be edited in the MOD once they become available.

I look forward to the newer version of the mod and the new aircraft come along but I think I’ll wait for British & American voices before flying Campaigns /Careers with them....RAF & American slang would be a real bonus!🤭

It is superb to be able to fly any plane in almost any scenario in a campaign. Realistic or not, sometimes, I want to be the hero and this enables me to do so. +1

I've observed A-20s on the Kuban map with this mod installed performing tasks other than level bombing, i.e. strafing attacks. Is this intended or are these flights finally able to do things other than level bombing now? Doubtful if they had bombs on; they were only attacking with guns. 

 

I'm not entirely sure if this is a product of the Career or the mod. But it is certainly nice to see these planes in roles besides level bombing.

 

Example as attached.

Hi, this is intended. I assigned A20s to some ground attack units which formerly were equipped with IL-2s. The A20 is a very versatile plane and is performing excellently in the groundpounder role.

 

In Kuban (in this mod) you will also find P51s, P38s, P47s and Spitfires doing CAS attacks on ground targets. This is also intentional and due to the fact that I assigned those planes to former IL2 units. Have fun!

This is wonderful. I'm really glad to see A20s finally doing their thing past level bombing. Watching some eight of these birds swoop in tight and down low is really something.This is great stuff!

Only works with Mods on. You can install without jsgme, but I don´t recommend it, because deinstalling the stuff by hand might become tedious. So you are warned.

 

If you unzip the file it generates a sub-folder called data. Simply drop this subfolder with all its content into your game directory and it´ll integrate its files into the data folder of the game. To reverse this, without jgsme, you need to search for every and all files and folders this mod copied into your data folder. Folderstructure here and content of the folder called "scripts" below. The folders "13", "14" and "15" also contain two/three files each.:

No.. No wait my stupidity is boundless. Ive gotten jsgme to work before..wont work now. I dropped the entire zip into my data folder... It did nothing lol. I think ill leave well enough alone the careers arent that far off.

JSGME is pretty easy. Install it in the root directory of your game and create a folder called MODS. Within this MODS folder place all mods you are using. Important point to have the mod working is that the subfolder of the mod is the data folder like in the pic shown below.

 

What JSGME does, and all it does, is take the contents of the mod folder and copy paste them to the games root folder according to the folder structure in that mod folder.

Thats where I may have rlly messed up thx lemme retry. Id really like to fly career mode (as sad as that is..) just for some.. I like berloga and online flying but sometimes Idk it doesnt do it for me.

Question.....

Would this method allow..... substitution of say FC aircraft? i know Id be facing WW2 aircraft but it coud be useful Way behind to lines or for low risk missions to look for bugs

Yes you could replace every available plane with something else. I replaced the WW2 planes with all FC planes here:

 

You could even replace all german ww2 planes and let the US and RAF slug it out over Kuban with the VVS. All that ist possible. But you need to keep in mind. You only replace the planes, the mission structure remains the same.

Ok followedi nstructions didnt work. Im gonna extract the actual contents of ALL OF BOBP EAST and drop into mods if not I give up! LOL

thanks

P.S> I REALLY dont get it ! I got All the GWX stuff working in SH3.  Its not like Im new

dude thanks so much unfortunately I cant even replace the soviet with a p51 or 38. I really just want a p38 career.. lol

Yea no dice

actually seven maybe u can help me

I had to enable mods

derp

all my settings got reset pita

So I start up

ONLY 3 planes avail Po2 A20 and Spit 5

I check germans and ALL BOBP planes ARE available... so somethings going right and something isnt!

ya Seven how coculd I do the option of US vs VVS? That fascinates me. If I was better at mission editor I wanted to make a camapign based on Glantz' essay on 'how the axis could have won ww2' about a ww3 scenario where the east and west fight for a few weeks. I was thinking first campaign in rhineland would be P51 at first -escorting B25s hitting marshalling yards, switching to p38s to strike more and more red army tanks etc. 2nd campaign VVS LA5FN and Yak1Bs

Option 2 was studying some of the real life engagements over VIenna etc where P51s vs VVS mis ID.d and dogfought

my editor skills ARENT there though
