Ugly Ducklings Mod

Postby ace_Ad » Mon 4 May 2015 21:16

Hello Wargamers!

Today I want to show and share my work with you and I hope that some of you will have fun with these little changes.

At first I have to thank a lot of people:

Eugen for this great game
Mikeboy for his magnificent and inspiring "plane redo"
COMThing for his Wargame Plane Modding Tutorial
Vasto for his beautiful skins
enohka for his moddingSuite which made all this possible
and last but not least Flieger who always tried to keep the spirits high in the German community

So what do I want to achieve with this mod?

Wargame is a good game but there are units that are in the wrong place. There are even some units/countries that are unhistorical crippled. THAT needs to be changed. The other factors are the limitations included in the game which I just don't like. ;) Please don't call me biased or so. I know that the balance might not be perfect within this mod but:
1st: this mod is for single player purpose only (or playing with friends using the mod)
2nd: with the number of activation points you should be able to form challenging opfor decks :twisted:
3rd: being in the last phase of my mechanical engineering studies I just lack the time for beeing perfect :cry:

UPDATE 1:

F16 Block 15
Mesh changed

Image

A7 Corsair II

Loadout changed to 4x MK83

Image

Unfortunately 4 bombs are the maximum loadout due to the bugged pylon. But I am thinking about adding a single Shrike missile for self defence...

Believe me I tried a LOT of things. The problem is that you never know when the bombs start to form double or tripple racks. I also had a A7 loadout like:
2-2-3-O-3-2-0 :evil: instead of 2-2-2-O-2-2-2
Until now I never came out of the process with something usefull. :(

Update 3:

The slogan for today: "everyone can into multirole" :mrgreen:

A-4K KAHU
+2x AIM 9B
Image

F-100D
+2x AIM 9B

F-16C PEACE BRIDGE
-4x AIM 9M
+4x Rockeye II
Image

KF-16C
-6x AIM120
+2x AIM9M
+4x AIM7M
Image

The loss of the AMRAAMs may seem hard, but the Sparrows aren't that bad and it seems like the plane perfoms a bit better.
1st hit - Sparrow
2nd hit Sidewinder
=kill 8-)

The next underperforming ducklings I have identified are:
Jaguar A (France)
F5A (Norway)
A4K (Anzac)
MIG 21 MF (Poland)
SU25K (NK)

But this may take a while due a lack of time. I am also not sure about the loadout they will get. So feel free to come up with (realistic) ideas.

KF-16C
-4x AIM7
+4x AIM120
Image

F-16 Fighting Falcon
switched sides - belongs now to Denmark ;) (was just useless due to redundance in the USAF)
-Rockeyes
+2x AIM 7M
Image

Harrier GR.1
+2x MK 77 for a bigger CAS capability :twisted:
Image

F/A-18A
....well it is now redundance free ;)
-2x Maveric
+4x Paveway II
Image

Jaguar A
is now a multirole plane
+2x R.550 Magic
