  1. WW4 Extended - Changelog
  2.  
  3. v.1.1.1
  4.  
  5. Logics and scripts
  6. NEW: Optional logic "Delete dead bodies". Deletes dead infantry units after a default time of 5 minutes. Time can be changed through the WW4EXT_dbtime global variable. Vehicles can also be deleted by setting the WW4EXT_deleteVeh variable to true
  7. FIX: Changed the way MAP rucksacks checks for mag types so it works after loading a saved game
  8. FIX: Fixed not being able to unpack rucksacks after you unpack anything but a magazine (bandages, food, etc)
  9. FIX: Viper wasn't able to properly deploy countermeasures
  10.  
  11. Infantry
  12. FIX: Added missing entry for multicam crew and pilot to cfgModels. Updated binarized models
  13.  
  14. Vehicles
  15. FIX: Corrected position of Stryker MEV driver
  16.  
  17. Other
  18. FIX: Further fixing and revising of the included missions
  19.  
  20. v.1.1
  21.  
  22. Logics and scripts
  23. NEW: (untested in MP) Optional logic to enable dust effects (infantry steps, weapon fire, bullet hit, AT launcher fire, etc)
  24. NEW: Game logics that automatically replace infantry ammo with HD variants (both normal and ruck ammo), found in Unit Scripts logic group. It's my old script to replace HD WW4 mags, updated to ext and with added ruck mag support. The script can also be accessed directly to only assign HD to a given unit or group (found in \ww4ext_scripts\hdammoww4ext.sqs)
  25. NEW: (untested in MP) Game Logic "Enable fixed speed limit for vehicles" (in Unit Scripts logics), which limits the speed of vehicles to a fixed maximum when their group speed is set to "LIMITED" (it uses a new script: limitedspeed.sqs, the idea is to enhance the chances vehicles -particularly helos- have to engage enemies while on patrol)
  26. NEW: (untested in MP) Auto-smoke script that emulates a smoke grenade throw without locking the unit in the "the stars are so beautiful today" mode. This script replaces the old smoke throwing one.
  27. NEW: (untested in MP) Auto-flares script that emulates a unit shooting a flare without locking the unit in the "the stars are so beautiful today" mode. This script replaces the old flare shooting one.
  28. NEW: Ability to easily change the faces used by a group through the new changefaces.sqs script
  29. FIX: Fixed dropping two ruck mags instead of one when unit starts assigned to a vehicle
  30. FIX: Fixed some harmless (but annoying) errors related to the init scripts of units that either die or are deleted after spawn
  31. FIX: Face count for tropical faces in ww4ext_faces scripts should be correct now
  32. FIX: Fixed "Self heal" action menu spam when respawning in MP
  33. CHANGE: Updated face scripts to support: army white, specop white, army black and camo black
  34. CHANGE: Smoke grenade scripts now don't replace BIS smk gr with a WW4 one (so the BIS one is used all the way)
  35. CHANGE: bulletcracks.sqs is now deprecated. There's a new shoteffects.sqs script that deals both with bullet cracks and dust effects
  36. CHANGE: Chance to throw a smoke grenade on hit reduced from 80 to 60%
  37. CHANGE: Significantly reduced chance of going for a little sprint and then lie down when shot at while crawling
  38. CHANGE: Significantly reduced chance for harmless (but annoying) error when unit tries to throw smoke towards a unit that is either dead or deleted
  39. CHANGE: You'll be warned of how many calls for support missions are left when they are not unlimited (for CAS, fire and transport support)
  40.

  51. FIX: ASSISTTL_556B_GL_MAGS loadout renamed to ASSISTTL_556_GL_MAGS in 556loadout.hpp
  52. FIX: Changed prefix for guerrilla grenadier (flares) from WW4EXT_GUER to WW4EXT_GUE. Added legacy classes to not break existing missions
  53. CHANGE: All infantry units have been revised to reduce section count to the minimum possible. This should give some performance boost
  54. CHANGE: New models for russian motorized rifle desert and flora, as well as pilots and crew flora and digiflora
  55. CHANGE: New models and textures for russian VDV flora (rifle and crew) and crew digiflora
  56. CHANGE: Replaced a couple 9x39 mags with a couple smoke grenades for CT Russian Assistant TL

  75. CHANGE: Several changes and fixes to Toyotas, including increasing passenger capacity for transport version to 10 (it was 7), with a total crew of 11, and for dshk version to 3 (it was 1), with a total crew of 5
  76. CHANGE: Disabled being able to turn out for the shilka driver (same as in vanilla shilka)

  79. CHANGE: Woodland US Army vehicles mostly manned by multicam units now
  80. CHANGE: Moved zamerny points to the turret ring area for the T-72, T-90 and M1 series tanks. This should help the aiming of AI units attacking them

  90. FIX: Revised weapon dexterity values (some were wrong, such as the SMG GL having better dexterity than the normal version)
  91. FIX: Removed reduced zeroing for SD versions of some weapons (that was a leftover from a previous version where SD weapons had lower zero)
  92. CHANGE: Revised some bullet damage values
  93. CHANGE: Revised recoil values for all infantry mags. Created new versions of recoils for HD mags, some of them based on the old recoils for non HD (such as those of 7.62 mags). Non HD mag recoils will now always autocenter the weapon, even if the recoil is heavy
  94. CHANGE: Homogenized damage values of east RPGs. RPG-75 is now equivalent to RPG-18. RPG-22 is now equivalent to M136 (now RPG-22 can one-shot a stryker). RPG-26 is a bit superior to RPG-22. RPG-7(PG-7VL) is a bit superior to RPG-26
  95. CHANGE: Javelin is now "fire & forget". Removed manual control from the javelin, so the missile hits the locked target no matter where the player moves the javelin launcher sight after firing
  96. CHANGE: Damage for top down javelin missile buffed to be able to kill any current armored vehicle
  97. CHANGE: Removed BIS tracers from all vehicle weapons, so now BIS tracers and EXT tracers can be enabled without any problems (and you can now see the dot of laser designators if you enable the OFP tracers)
  98. CHANGE: Tripods now have lower dispersion (previously they were using HMG_AA, which has a ridiculous amount of dispersion so aircraft isn't destroyed in one burst, now they have HMG_INF, as they should have from the start)
  99. CHANGE: Added ruck mags to MAP_rucksack for new 556BASD and HD variant mags. Updated ruck related scripts to support the new 556BASD ruck mags
  100. CHANGE: M136 AT4 buffed to be able to kill a russian BMP-3 (as that vehicle's armor was buffed to withstand 50 cal)
  101. CHANGE: A bit less dispersion for suppressed rifles
  102.  
  103. Other
  104. NEW: EXT versions of most (all?) OFP enterable buildings, plus some other vanilla buildings and objects

  112. FIX: Removed geometry from geo LOD for howitzer camo nets to allow AI units to move below them without problems
  113. FIX: Doors of guard house can now be opened and closed
  114. FIX: Removed line "sounds[] = {};" in cfgsounds in ww4ext_helper config, which was causing the sounds defined in this config to not be loaded into the engine in some cases
  115. FIX: Fixed, revised and updated all EXT missions
  116. CHANGE: Bullet crack sounds lowered, so they are just a tiny bit higher than a normal shot (so they now don't always override other sounds)
  117. CHANGE: Tweaked invisible targets and related scripts (all of them are Target type now, previously the infantry ones where derivatives of soldierwb; changed the cost values to make sure AI units will engage them more consistently; increased size of fire geometry by A LOT, so it's even more visible to the AI; all targets are now actually objects and not infantry, so there's now no limit to the amount that can be spawned, and all the complicated stuff I had to do in their spawning script -on hit suppression- is not needed anymore)
  118. CHANGE: Moved most objects from the "WW4 EXT/Objects (W)" category to the "WW4 EXT/Objects" one (they can be used regardless of the terrain type after all)
  119. CHANGE: Updated material definitions with the textures of the new objects
  120.

  140. FIX: Added null and alive checks before applying tracers to units in bn_tracer_red.pbo. This should stop the annoying (but harmless) script errors displayed sometimes when dynamically spawning vehicles.

  301. CHANGE: MBTs with ballistic fire control systems now fire high speed rounds so no extra gun elevation is needed for in-range shots (human gunner still needs to compensate horizontally if enemy vehicle is moving that way). Gunner is also able to see radar in these vehicles.
  302. CHANGE: Zil trucks now use LODs with lower poly count than before
  303.  
  304. Weapons
  305. NEW: IEDs. Possible to detonate them remotely or by damaging them.

  425. - FIX: Vehicles that transport ammo now carry the new EXT rocket launchers and ammo

  462.

  505. - CHANGE: Rifle units should now reserve burst and full mode for engagements under 200m, while having a slower rate of fire the more distant the target is, in general. This should help AI better conserve their ammo, and slow down/balance the dynamics of long distance engagements (ww4ext_magazines)
  506.  
  507. Other:
  508. - NEW: 15 new music tracks by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) which fall under the Creative Commons 3.0 license.
