I gotta wonder, if this is a power-plant, where are the electricity poles/towers, and why don't the facilities of Norway 2 and 3 go dark? :)
Well, there are many electricity poles on the Norway 1 map (see examples shown on the picture below)... :roll:

As for the Norway 2 and 3 - maybe they have an independent power supply from another power-plant. Who knows.

I dunno if that's a good idea; they can already see, (and identify), us from a long way away, it's snowing, which hampers visibility, and we're wearing the Arctic-camo.

I'm not sure what you mean by that, but it might have solved the problem I am going to show you in a picture.

To justify why it's not covered in frost and snow from the cold, you should add that huffing-and-puffing sound that one locomotive of Italy 3 had. smile01 After all, the Germans wouldn't want the Engine to freeze. Possibly a bit of smoke coming from the chimney as well.

In the briefing, the instructor confuses me and others; "if the enemy succeeds" , so if you can and are willing, I suggest adding arrows from the buildings to the inner towers.
As for the increased visibility range - i checked this during the Norway 1 mission testing and i didn't notice any advantage for the enemy as a direct result of the change. I didn't want to remove the fog, but only to slightly increase the visibility. That is all.

I re-checked again all static collisions of the buildings and other large objects and now no bullets should pass through them.

I will try to add a "steam noise sound effect" and escaping steam fumes to both locomotives.

Obviously the instructor meant enemy reinforcements that will come from the buildings highlighted in red. He mentioned earlier, that the inner towers are not manned at the moment. He cannot know how many enemy soldiers will came out of those buildings and where they will go (to which particular guard tower).

Further changes that i implemented in the Norway 1 mission:

-> added "steam noises" to both locomotives - these sounds will disappear after you blow up the locomotives; :cool:

-> added the effect of escaping steam to the locomotives - the effect will disappear after you blow up the locomotives (see picture below). :cool:


Below i uploaded my newest Norway 1 mission update will all the changes listed in this post and in the previous ones.

OK Myron. So now i will look again into the Norway 2 mission.

Changes that i implemented in the Norway 2 mission so far:

-> endurance skill of all enemies set to 50%;

-> to reach the mission extraction point by truck you will need now to blow up the road barrier placed at the entrance to the complex;

-> i decreased the visibility range from 350 meters to 250 meters;

-> i strengthened the metal staircase structure leading to the antenna mast (see attached picture); :cool:

-> optimized some patrol routes of enemy soldiers;

-> changed behavior of some enemy soldiers - some of them will guard assigned areas, while others will spawn when certain events occurs;

-> now blowing up the laboratory first will result in mission failure - you will need to blow up the antenna mast first to cut-off communications, so Germans in the complex won't call for help. Other method will be to kill an enemy officer in his room or to destroy only functional radio (see picture below). :cool:

OK Myron. So now i will look again into the Norway 3 mission.

Changes that i implemented in the Norway 2 mission so far:

-> endurance skill of all enemies set to 50%;

-> the default locomotive model replaced with the edited one used first in the Italy 3 mission;

-> added steam visual and sound effects to the locomotive (just like i did in the Norway 1 mission) - see picture below;

-> restored the default patrol route of an enemy soldier like shown in the mission video briefing.

After your latest PM i implemented further changes / bug fixes into the Norway 2 mission:

-> fixed problems with the searchlight - it could be now manipulated by the player; :cool:

-> added a box with explosives and detonator to one of the buildings in the complex (see picture below);

-> replaced the default bookshelves models (archives) in the laboratory building rooms with destroyable versions;

-> now blowing up all the bookshelves (archives) located in the laboratory building rooms is also mandatory to complete the mission (see pictures below);

-> entering the laboratory building before blowing up the antenna mast (to cut off communications) will result in a mission failure.

Further changes that i implemented in the Norway 2 mission:

-> now the barrels in the laboratory are destroyable (i created a destroyable model) - the barrels will explode upon destruction; :cool:

-> i edited the default German soldier model wearing winter uniform (see picture below) - i made this modifications, because enemy soldiers that are "dressed" in that uniform will be alerted upon receiving a signal (destroyed antenna mast), so they dressed up in a hurry to get outside the building as fast as possible (without carrying additional ammo pouches and gear like the default model had).


Below i uploaded the models.mod.rar archive that contains the new models. Please download it.

Further changes that i implemented in the Norway 3 mission:

-> i made the equipment in the "heavy water production hall" destroyable - including the barrels shown on the mission briefing; :cool:

-> replaced some guards in the heavy water production hall with the engineer/mechanic model;

-> added missing light sources in some rooms of the complex;

-> added a single lamp at the entrance to the corridor that leads to the heavy water production hall (see picture below);

-> re-organized the armory / guards room near the heavy water production hall (see picture below);

-> now the doors leading to the corridor are locked (the entrance to the heavy water production hall) - the key to unlock them is in possession of one the guards inside the complex (see picture below);

-> changed behavior of enemy soldiers - some of them will guard assigned areas, while others will spawn when certain events occurs;

-> i made the heavy water production hall brighter, because it was too dark by default. I replaced most of the small wall lamps with bigger ones (like those used in the Germany 3 mission).

OK Myron. So now i will look again into the Norway 4 mission.

Changes that i implemented in the Norway 4 mission so far:

-> endurance skill of all enemies set to 50%;

-> now opening fire in the vicinity of the bunker will result in a mission failure;

-> now opening fire close to the commander's office will result in a mission failure - killing the commander first will prevent this.

-> turning on the alarm by the bunker's commander in his office results now in a mission failure (the nearby submarine base will be alerted to our presence). Killing the commander silently using knife will prevent the alarm from being raised.

Further changes that i implemented into the Norway 4 mission:

-> tactical map updated - now more objects are visible on the map (see attached picture below);

-> tactical map edited - i made it slightly less bright than the default map;

-> previous patrol boat model replaced with "winter model" (see attached picture below) - now it fits better with the surroundings; :cool:

-> edited the default mooring pin model (optimized its static collision - now it is more precisely matched to the model);

-> i created a new inventory item - the German winter uniform that could by used by the player to dress up as a German soldier (see picture below). Now the remaining 2 members of the SAS team could use them as disguise. :cool:
