jear could be that we replace/delet objects and classnames...I had the same problem with my missions from the older versions to 2.5 but...even if!? the missions are easy to fix...

we've pretty much edited every pbo in the new unsung, and made a big-ass spreadsheet of classnames ready for you to repair/ convert missions with.

what i would say is, where you can, use arrays in the init like

westarmor1 = ["uns_m113", uns_m163"];

then in scripts in your mission that spawn units etc call them like this

_maxA = (count westarmor1)-1;

_tank1 = createVehicle [(westarmor1 select round random _maxA), _pos, [], 0, "NONE"];

instead of say

_tank1 = createVehicle ["uns_m113", _pos, [], 0, "NONE"];

then its really easy to manage your mission content - just open the spreadsheet on release day and replace all your array content with new stuff

i do the same with infantry units like this

EGG_EVO_east1 = ["uns_men_vc_regional_MED","uns_men_vc_regional_COM","uns_men_vc_regional_off","uns_men_vc_regional_nco","uns_men_vc_regional_RF1","uns_men_vc_regional_RF2","uns_men_vc_regional_RF3","uns_men_vc_regional_RF4","uns_men_vc_regional_RF5","uns_men_vc_regional_AS1","uns_men_vc_regional_AS2","uns_men_vc_regional_AS3","uns_men_vc_regional_AS4","uns_men_vc_regional_MRK","uns_men_vc_regional_LMG","uns_men_vc_regional_HMG","uns_men_vc_regional_RTO","uns_men_vc_regional_SAP","uns_men_vc_regional_TRI","uns_men_vc_regional_MGS","uns_men_vc_regional_MTS","uns_men_vc_regional_AT","uns_men_vc_regional_Roff","uns_men_vc_regional_Rmed","uns_men_vc_regional_Ra1","uns_men_vc_regional_Ra2","uns_men_vc_regional_Rmrk","uns_men_vc_regional_Rmg"];

but anyway, we haven't deleted much so you should not get much of this

"cannot load this mission as it relies on downloadable content that has been deleted: uns_tracked"

in this case just open your mission.sqm in notepad++ or wordpad and find requiredaddons list at top entry

"uns_tracked",

and delete it

although, we do have an uns_tracked in uns 2.6 so don't follow this advice prematurely!

it is quite simple to fix this stuff - just post up any probs and we'll sort you out, come the day.

we have scope 1'd some older content so it should still work, but when you click on it in editor it will default to whatever starts the vehicleclass list for that item, so beware editing like that. better to open scripts / mission.sqm and search and replace class by class if you can manage it.

What we might do is release the classnames list and supporting how to documentation a week ahead of release so those mission makers among you can have it ready on release day :)

@eggbeast

thanks for the info. yer I've been trying to make sore the scripts "easily" editable cos i figured some class names would change. idn y i didn't think of deleting the uns_tracked from the mission.sqf

What we might do is release the classnames list and supporting how to documentation a week ahead of release so those mission makers among you can have it ready on release day :)

^^This would be awesome and much appreciated as you said so we can have the missions ready to go release day.

I don't want to discredit your work in any way. I'm glad you're thinking about this item as it has caused problems trying to navigate them but.................

I've been living in Asia for 25 years and never have I seen them made of stone. They will use the soil that is currently present on the spot.

On the other hand, some modern rice fields I've lived near are squared off by roads.

@Kommiekat...i know what u mean man but the problem is to build rice paddies in visitor...the stairs are no problem but to fill with water...and the stonewall object i useed are atm the only good working object i can use...when u have better ideas for an object i can use...tell me...i am everytime open for good ideas...the last month i watch a lot of videos and checked out pictures...the mekong delta area is more flat....so i think we dont need rice field stairs...sry 4 my english...i do my best :-) thank u!

@Sgt.Spoetnik...u can place the bunkers later over the mission editor. I was thinking about to place them in visitor but then u can not change the direction later...better way is the mission editor:-)

While the target tab lock system in jets is used to detect air/ground targets in radar HUD,is it possible to configure freefall Mk82 or FAB-250 to be inaccurate like unguided rockets to make air missions realistic in the mod.

About the hueys would it be possible to have an unarmed version of the uh1C (only door guns)? That was a typical ship for special forces insertions or for small troops transport.
