  1. Hey, just tried Cam Lao Nam version in SP with just Prairie Fire loaded to see if it progresses to the next mission and it went fine, although I just used "abort mission". It's always best to try without any unrequired mods first to rule that possibility out, there could have been some mod update etc, so I recommend that first. This is SP right, not MP? The last log on your rpt is weird because there's no error message and there's nothing too special going on before the next logs that should happen.
  2. Small update Version 1.07.03 - ADDED: VN mission versions: Incorporated some Prairie Fire v1.3 vehicles, weapons and music - FIXED: Map placed LZs sometimes not cleared of terrain objects properly - FIXED: Enemy vehicle and ammo box custom cargo items related error - CHANGED: Heli flyby script has max heli count tied to each heli type independently
  3. Tiny hotfix Version 1.07.02 - FIXED: AI teammates dying without falling unconscious with ACE medical loaded
  4. Thanks, but I don't understand. The CUP mods have always been mandatory. I only removed the RHS mods as mandatory mods by making alternate class libraries for CUP only, otherwise it's CUP+RHS if you have RHS mods loaded. Also, CUP is only required in the US and RU versions. NA versions don't require any mods so I recommend those to avoid any unnecessary dl hassle. If you guys have Prairie Fire you could also try the VN versions by only loading that CDLC.
  5. I've never had that kind of problem myself. Are you using some mod that could be the culprit? Sometimes the starting point is a bit far away, that's true. Something like 1km closer would be more reasonable in your case. The starting point algorithm might have some room for adjustment. In general, the algorithm calculates a center of a sector far enough from the coast to keep distance to possible enemy patrol boats. By starting further away the time it takes to execute the insertion is also better in line with the other insertion methods.
  6. Small hotfix for few loadout issues. Version 1.07.01 - FIXED: Loadout speciality didn't update properly if it was reset after changing the primary weapon - FIXED: RU mission versions: Some friendly troops spawning without primary weapon
  7. Thanks for the reports, I'll check the loadout issues. About the artillery issue, like I've stated before, sometimes the AI is not firing for unknown reasons. Could be purely an AI issue or bad configuration or whatever but despite having ammo and within range and meeting all the conditions to fire, sometimes it just won't. There are artillery types that doesn't seem to be affected by this problem at all and for some types this seems to happen often.
  8. Thanks for the report. I'll take a look. Were you using only CUP mods, not RHS? And which player faction, VDV or GRU?
  9. New major update released. This update includes most of the remaining features and improvements I've kept on my to-do/ideas list and this may be my last bigger update for this mission.

  10. Can't really tell, only AI mods came to mind as the cuplrit. I don't think there's anything in the scripts that could cause this. I haven't experienced what your describing, other than the AI being what it is all the time. The next update has some minor changes and improvements regarding insertion and extaction, let's hope that helps at least a bit.
  11. Hello, no plans on porting on that map yet. The spawn radius depends on terrain but on average for infantry it's around 2000m, for vehicles it's higher as their patrol area is large. Lowering the ambient enemy saturation helps at least. Next update also improves the way the ambient enemy level affects the actual enemy amount on map, at the moment the effect is a bit inaccurate.
  12. It should work but hard to say what the problem is without seeing the rpt. Next bigger update is just around the corner and it has some changes/improvements for the generation processes.
  13. Thanks, and great to hear that you made your mod compatible with the mission! I haven't tried your mod yet but I will definitely do that at some point, looks very handy for better AI control. Good job!
  14. Thanks for the report, I'll have a look. Are you using any other mods that those required?
  15. I have no plans to do much about the gear selection and methods. Having primary and speciality gear selections is balanced by design and it's easy to quickly select gear for both squads, especially with the presets drop-down menu. Virtual arsenal is a completely different system and it doesn't let you choose gear for the AI as far as I know, only for yourself. You can try to find a mod for your needs or try to edit this mission to enable Virtual arsenal.
