Sahara sands - a H&D Deluxe mission add-on.

Unread post by p.jakub88 » Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:44 pm

Hello everyone,

i would like to share with you my thirtieth-four created mission add-on for Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe, it is called "Sahara sands".

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Unpack the data.rar archive into your H&D Deluxe data folder (i.e.: C:\Program Files\Take2\Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe\data) and replace data.dta with the new one. Due to the mission size i uploaded it on Mediafire as a *.rar archive: http://www.mediafire.com/file/5793vrve5 ... _sands.rar. Unpack it into your H&D Deluxe data folder. The mission add-on is a file with *.add extension. Start the game, choose play add-on and select "Sahara sands" from the menu.

MISSION BRIEFING

LIBYA, 1941. Today we will attack an airfield behind enemy lines. Our objectives are to destroy fuel tanks, all enemy fighter planes inside hangars and escape using jeep through the main airfield entrance. The airfield is heavily defended with bunkers and guard towers. The squadron of enemy fighter planes consists of about 10 planes. Good luck!

CREDITS

To NilsZ for providing info about creating destroyable models in 3ds max.
The new models and related textures were downloaded from www.cadnav.com, except for the destroyable versions which i made myself, the 88 mm ammo shells and desert plain. I also re-textured some already existed default H&D Deluxe objects (i.e boxes, fuel tanks, etc).

IMPORTANT INFO

To destroy the fuel tanks You will need to put a time-bomb near them. To destroy parked planes You could throw a grenade near them, put a time-bomb or shot at them with jeep mounted machine-gun. I created a new inventory item called "time-bomb with amatol" for the purpose of other mission add-ons made earlier, but please choose the default one for this mission. Due to the big size of the map i created checkpoint network (the grid used by AI to navigate) only inside the airfield area (surrounded by a metal fence).

REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK

If you downloaded my mission add-on please give me your feedback. I am waiting your comment. :grin:

IMPORTANT UPDATE

I re-uploaded the data.rar file once again. It seems, that there were some files missing inside the data.dta archive preventing from launching the game. I apologize for that.

Hello Bielow,

i finally managed to fix the collision problem. :grin:

It was probably due to the large map size - i added additional desert volume (collision). The collision problem is one of the most common bugs to encounter when making a new map from scratch.

I re-uploaded the mission on mediafire. Please download it again. It could take a longer time than usual to load this mission in H&D Deluxe due to its big size. This is caused by all that new models that i added.

See pictures below. I hope, that everything now is OK. Please let me know.

So, did You played this mission?

It is important to me to know that, to avoid such situations in future.

I launched the mission two times in a row without problems and i succesfully completed it.

"Sahara sands" add-on was tested on 2 different PCs: on one with Windows XP 32-bit OS and on Windows 10 32-bit OS.
