Jolly Mods

Post by jolly_giada »

Hi all,

Over the past month, I've been spending some scarce free time that has become available during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays to learn how to mod maps. I am starting this thread to log changes and additions I will introduce as time goes by, as well as to welcome and discuss feedback from all of you on these modified maps. They are all SSM: they require no downloads. I thank you for your patience, open-mindedness, and constructive comments, as I understand they are likely incomplete.

Hope you all have fun :)

Cheers,
Jolly

Changelog:

1. DC Urban Siege CTF (0.8)

blue flag = center of docks
2 humvees, 1 tow, 2 .50s, stryker, MH-6

red flag = temple
2 pickups, 1 technical, 2 .50s, stryker, MH-6

control pts:
tower = *high* strategic importance. once captured, it has all elevated spawns that do not immediately parachute, exactly equidistant btw dock flag and temple flag

downtown = adjacent to temple (like market in Nas)

northwest flag = by NW apartment buildings (like slums in Nas)

highrise = has SA transport helo, and some cool goodies (eg Iraqi tanks that can go on water)

Other features:

-escape boats throughout

-can use boat to access the ladder behind docks

-boats have just a bit of turbo

-weapons walls on both mains, with extra stingers/grails to shoot down helos

-it LOOKS like red and blue mains are close, but only as the crow flies. i added Pickup barriers to two main roads traversing the Temple to Docks route. should encourage would-be flag capturers to take longer routes.

-old red main is still there, but i deleted the SA attack helo. so if you want a scud, go have fun.

DPV's have been added throughout as escape vehicles

2. DC Basrahs Edge CTF (0.8)

mostly a mod of Tona's

Middle flag is particularly strategically important: capture it, and get a BMP2 or M2A3/Brad (IFV)

Blue and Red mains have Black Hawks UH-60

Default anti-tank kit now has a SMAW/Stinger or RPG/Grail due to helo.

3. LV NoPara CQ (0.8)
--noticed how blue really struggles to gain momentum on this map.
changelog:
-only 1 DPV in red main
-2 .50cals in red main
-3 LCVPs in blue main
-2x MH-6, 1x UH-60 in blue main; i had initially changed to 2x UH-60 but this left blue w/ too little ground support, as everyone just wanted to fly high and gun (i cant entirely blame them)
-2 DPVs at Factory spawn ONLY when Blue has captured the Factory, else red gets nothing

likely largest change:
-added 4 random spawns based on MH-53 all over the northwest hills. At each random spawn is a DPV. this confers on blue an additional offense advantage and line of attack
-Red better be vigilant: blue has the village surrounded!

4. Inshallah CTF (0.7)
-added glass bottom fixes and turbo engines to basically all vehicles
-added .50cal snipers to mains
-removed Shilka on lower repair pad
-Increased spawn time of Apache and Hind

Blink: I can write a brief getting started guide. I will get to it at some point soon.

Briefly:
1. download WinRFA
2. download and install Editor42
3. i think Sublime Text is a great text editor for modding maps
4. use http://bfmods.com/tutorial.php for the basics
5. feel free to post in viewtopic.php?f=62&t=5966 with any questions so Tona, HRD, BBOw, or novice me, can help.

LMK how it goes...

I can't game tonight but if anyone is on, feel free to ask HRD/Tona/Trench to play Urban CTF and report back on it how it goes.

Bang -- thx: Spawn in wall is fixed.

Otto -- thx: exploding barriers are fixed.

All: ignore the grey flag icon when approaching the enemy flag. I'll figure out how to get rid of it some time. Until then, just ignore.

Hey Jolly,

Great work.
I wanted to play your CTF (dcf) SSM mod of DC_Urban_Siege the other night but it does not seem to be on the maplist.
Please let me know when I can play-test it.

:D
thanks and a Happy New Year !
