Well the link to U-56 intercepting Churchill in the HMS Nelson borked – just like Wilhelm Zahn’s 3 torpedoes! Apt! Will try again :
I could indulge in a little shadenfreude and rip into what’s become of Naval Action, but in all honesty..I cannot be bothered. Shame…nice sail engine and little else – mile wide, inch deep? So, cajones to that!
What I’ve been ploughing loads of time into the past year is ye old Silent Hunter 3 with GMX gold mod. Wow! Absolutely love it! Along…[Read more]
Trust me on the textures…the model name is 84, but opening the model, it actually uses texture name 54
A-ha! That explains why a different texture was showing. Cheers
why would I want to torture myself with another problem child? LOL
NA’s gone full release in the last few weeks. I think it’s ‘ship has sailed’ (insert water-based pun of c…[Read more]
Dear MK & Jeffrey – How do I steal the source code for “Naval Action” from those scuzzy devs and give it to you to play with…without getting caught?
Just kidding! Do you have a copy of the model and texture for the Salamanca broadsword (in-game)? My texture file is borked – well, i’ve overwritten it accidentally and whats produced now in-game…[Read more]
BTW – apologies for typo’s with missing “A” letters – my A key on keyboard is becoming increasingly fickle!
Wow! I’ve never seen the Hondo Dean Pauls before. That’s a cracking budget guitar there. I’ve got a neglected Les Paul copy, that was bought from a pawnshop purely becuase it had double EMGs on it. ONE of which was worth more than the whole price of the guitar-! But like I said it’s sat there neglected for years due to missing pegs and the…[Read more]
Do you reckon Edgar Alan Poe was inspired by The Hunchback of Notra Dame, and the plight of Quasimodo?
The “bells, bells, bells…” bit specifically?
Semi-seriously, I originally read this thread back in January. The name LHookins instantly rang a bell, but I couldn’t think exactly what then, so I just carried on and read the steam link. Got…[Read more]
Still got some Robert E Howard books for sale, if you’e interested. Near-mint condition, Can’t remember what I did with the receipts though…..hang on a sec…..
If it comes down to it, I’d rather people stole books than burn them.
Now, Millenials constantly staring and tapping their smart phones. I take that as an open invitation to throw…[Read more]
And I had you tagged as a Schecter man! Jackson make some fine guitars, as do Ibanez. Absolutely love EMG pickups, though Seymour Duncan will do just fine as well. I’m not popular with my neighbours/ friends/ partners when I plug in either. Dont let them grind you down. Buy them earplugs.
Nothing like playing a blistering guitar riff,…[Read more]
Ah, ok – I hear what you’re saying. Some ‘exploits’ are appreciated considering the Questline imbalance. I should really ask Jeffrey to mark those files as “Experimental” to avoid any misconceptions in the future. Appreciate the feedback though – and I will be needing more in near future in regards to some user mods I’m hoping to put…[Read more]
Funnily enough, I grew up shoplifting Robert E. Howard books. As you do…you know…
Ended up actually reading the one’s that I didn’t have to hand back to the Grampian police. They got all the L Spraque du Camp ghost-written stuff, plus all the Stephen King and James Herbert lesser efforts. Chuck in a few crap Sven Hassle ones as well. Never…[Read more]
We’ll that’s kind of wierd! I realised yesterday that I uploaded the wrong files to Jeffrey (- sorry Chief!) and I think they were the default ERAS ones, from the 2.6.7 build. I’ve just checked with winmerge and the Beatrice Devlin animation was an earlier modded version, but with very little done to it. NO modifications were done to…[Read more]
@ Jeffrey: I new all that – honest!
Nah, I didn’t. Thank you Jeffrey for explaining so concisely and eloquently for dummies like me.
And again…another post gets lost in edit.
Merchant Lugger: SHIP_LUGGERVML
Cornish Lugger: SHIP_LUGGER
Petite Lugger: SHIP_PINK
Heavy Lugger: SHIP_LUGGER_H
Armed French Lugger: SHIP_ChasseMaree
Bermuda Sloop: SHIP_BERMSLOOP
Veinhard sloop: SHIP_VEINARD
I think you’re on the right track with: if (sti(PChar.rank) >= 1)
I wasn’t sure about just putting an ” = ” – Jeffrey can explain the logic far more articulately than myself.
IF you try substituting the ” >= ” command AND YOU STILL RECEIVE a “can’t initialise program” message, then fall back on ” > ” i.e. the GREATER THAN symbol, which…[Read more]
Find this line in ERASProgramscriptsShipsUtilites.c
FillShipParamShipyard(NPChar, GenerateStoreShip(SHIP_TARTANE), “ship1”);
…and change to:
FillShipParamShipyard(NPChar, GenerateStoreShip(SHIP_PINK), “ship1”);
Your ‘petite lugger’ will ALWAYS spawn in shipyards now.
NEXT, go to the line under it:
iTest_ship =…[Read more]
Schiavonna replied to the topic New features and changes I'd like to see added in future updates in the forum GOF Eras Module 2 download & discussion board 2 years, 5 months ago
Dugout Canoes with 20-30 man capacity, bought as 1 ship but with 5-6 models displayed when in 3D world. So then its possible for a player to board and take ships with 100-150 men from the harbour or nearby the shore.
Are you up to the challenge Jeffrey and Orazio? (Maybe a little too ambitious? (Cue Orazio fainting at the propect of modelling…[Read more]
You’re more than welcome. Sorry if it comes across a little intimidating regarding adding many items. It will be like the first time you try to open the interface when you first install ERAS. You re more likely to experience “lag” than an exploding CPU – LOL! The “lost edit” that strangley dissappeared after editing put it alot more succinctly and…[Read more]
BACK UP ANY FILE BEFORE YOU CHANGE IT – OR YOU WILL REGRET IT!
Good tips: get notepad ++ (not default windows notepad … its too basic)
Use a zip program to keep a clean/unmodded copy of the file(s) you are messing about with. Reason? You’ve now got a good visual indicator of whats been changed in your game folder, and can now tell in…[Read more]
WordPress blows dead rats in hell!
Its just gobbled my response to above. So Im going to post it again. But probably/maybe/most definately in 4-16 hours the original will sudenly appear and make me look like a right double posting thickie!
Reprint following this – no apologies for typos, bad spacing, etc – BLAME Turdpress for that!
