Arulco Vacations v1.10 is ready for download at the usual place! A lot of work has gone into all aspects of the mod - 110 new items, another new M.E.R.C. character (using voice files from another SirTech game of an original JA2 voice actor), another new in-country recruitable character (Doreen Harrows), 74 map sectors tweaked, Merc starting gear tweaked, major tweaks to the combat system, Arulcan Army loadouts modified, Arulcan Army patrols and garrisons modified, new Facilities, a new female I.M.P. portrait, and a whole lot more! You can find it on the download page of the blog, along with install instructions and notes on this release.

Enjoy!

Can't enjoy. The exe provided requests runtime to end in unusual way. The original 7609 exe doesn't run either, game doesn't start with either of them. Deleting install.

Well! That sounds like something got corrupted in the download, or, if you were using the inieditor to start the game possibly the vfs_config.JA2ArulcoVacations.ini wasn't specified (just a guess). Sorry, but that has not not happened here so I'm not sure what the problem is. Perhaps one of the coders has a better idea.

Oops! There is a missing Profiles folder in the v1.10-Complete download. I will upload a new complete package - and also upload a Fix download so those who have already downloaded the complete package won't have to re-download the entire thing. My apologies for this. There's always something . . .

Thanks to DanielS for letting me know.

You can create a "UserProfile_ArulcoVacations" folder (without the quotation marks) in your Profiles folder to correct the error. The only missing file is the JA2_sp.ini - which only holds the beginning game options, and will be created when you select those options yourself at the start of a game.

EDIT: The Complete download is fixed and is ready to go.

Yeah, sometimes I get carried away with the descriptions. As I find them I'll shorten them.

Great job with the new maps, the northern part of the country looks awesome with those farms and creeks. Hunting for cows now up from San Mona with my low strength IMP sniper. A reason to explore, those parts are seldom visited.

Only problem I've seen so far is the fact militia doesn't have weapons, "uses harsh language instead". I'll do a search to see some workaround.

As CareBear says, it's the .ini option to use sector equipment -- meaning you have to supply the militia with equipment (which is one of the reasons "Drop All" is on so you can scrounge enemy weapons for your nilitia).

Glad you like the maps! happy

Very Cool !

Congrats on another release and thanks for all your efforts. Will DL v1.10 and get it going.
I had to step back from playing 1.09 and refired up Arulco Revisited and playing some Urban Chaos. The complexity, sophistication and intensity of your mod, Arulco Vacations, was kicking my ass in a good way. At times I definitely felt overwhelmed and realized that playing a simpler, older 1.13 mod would give me some playtime to wrap my head around gameplay nuances and learn parts of the game better before diving into your mod.

JA2, the 1.13 constant upgrades over the years (improvements), and the details of Arulco Vacations are pretty astounding. There truly is no other "game" like it... aww - requiring attention, logistics, strategy, skill and hopefully luck at the right shot or miss at the wrong swing!

Thanks again and kudos to the Bears Pit community at large.

Thank you. I agree that there is no other game like JA2, and no other modding platform than v1.13. The only way Arulco Vacations could come about is through v1.13 and all the work done by the modders who had that vision - and keep breaking new ground all the time. As well, without Sevenfm's Experimental 7609 Executable AV would be much less enjoyable than it is. That Executable provides so much depth to the AI that it elevates game play to higher level. And as for overwhelming - it is for me also! I find that as the campaign progresses I must use every option available -- mines, heavy weapons, hit-&-run tactics, raids not occupations, hiring only for specific missions, hiring for garrison duty, etc..

Update 1 to Arulco Vacations v1.10 is now available. It fixes a couple typos in Items.XML, fixes (shortens) a lot of item descriptions in Bobby Ray's, adds 19 new items (and enhances a few older ones), tweaks 13 map sectors and fixes a couple missing wall sections in 2 of them, adds balloon text to 2 more civilian factions, adds more variety to the militia and enemy profiles, and includes Sevenfm's latest available executable (r657). It probably includes a few more things/fixes I've forgotten at the moment as I never have gotten into the habit of listing everything I do.


Oh yeah . . . it also makes headway into the transition from NAS to (N)CAF for weapon attachments.

It is a zip file. Simply unzip into your main game folder overwriting all files.

Hello Ed, let me 1st say Thank you!

While i adjusted some stuff to my personal preferences,
i noticed the value [ap_reload_loose = 2] in \apbpConstants.ini,
since it appears quite low i thought better ask here whether its a typo etc or intended.

p.s.
text message and voice of Jane Shepard on 1st click at AIM roster dont fit together
(audio: "Do i know you?"; edt: "lets hear it. Who are you and what do you want?")

It is not a typo. It might indeed be low, but is in line with reload values in Weapons.XML (which, I think, supersede the apbpConstants.XML). The reload system is one I have been continually tweaking and testing, as I thought the vanilla factors too high. I am happy to take into consideration all discussion on this matter - or any other aspect of the mod, as well.

The shopping part of Franks Heukermes appears to be buggy,
If i talk to him with r657 exe and hit the [Buy/Sell] button, the game freeze-locks,
i.e. even ALt+X will not allow to shut it down, only the taskmanager(win xp).
Doing that with stock 7609 exe results in: Assertion failure [line 990 in file shopkeeper interface.cpp].

Stack_trace.log is empty, vfs.log shows only the following errors:
[1.37109]: error: could not find section [] in container
[1.38736]: warning: could not ectract key value pair : :update_patrol_admins
[1.39426]: warning: could not ectract key value pair : reduce_bullet_impact - true
[12.3266]: error: could not find section [] in container
[12.3787]: warning: could not ectract key value pair : :update_patrol_admins
[12.3923]: warning: could not ectract key value pair : reduce_bullet_impact - true



Entirely cosmetic map issue:
Some roof tiles dont disappear after the inside of a building is explored, iirc already noticed some in Omerta,
the roof part over the entrances of Franks bar in San Mona definitely dont disappear.


Balance:
Playing @normal item progress speed(instead of minimum, and of course as always no "drop all";)
most mercs came with the Browning pistol and btw an excellet assortment of items, thanks;),
but e.g. a Stoner lmg and a C7ct for machinegunner/marksmann apppeared quite OP to me,
also the impact of low profile costs on JA2s financial aspect, add to that all the equipment for free.
(e.g.: running out of money? create an imp to sell his stuff)
I should mention that BR quality is at default although i always play at 1 or sometimes 2
as i thought it was intededly set to that lvl so we can see all new items in the shop,
would it affect item progress to go down if i lower BR quality?

The hiring fee of some mercs appears not to line up with their expertise,
e.g. compare Gasket or Juan to Static,
or low fee for Henning as the iirc most outstanding example that does ot line up with others.
(well, i wouldnt even hire him if he gave me money;)


may also want to check my last message as the "p.s." section was added after your reply.



p.s.
another thing i am not sure about whether intended or flaw:
3 new mercs met 4 bandits in a hut in B7(i guess placed there as they didnt want to change place)
and Guido could not withstand in sight of the loot they carried ;)
Expected that killing them would turn all members of bandit faction in Arulco hostile and checked in San Mona C6,
it did not, even fired a shot which called "bandit"s to cluster around the tile where the noise originated
(AI behaviour offers exploit opportunity;), with the shooter still standing there.

It's a 'vacation' - it is intended that you have plenty of money (no excuses for failure). As for Bobby Ray's, in line with the 'vacation' aspect it is intended that you have access to whatever you want - again, no excuses for failure. As you lower the Quality you will get closer to the actual in-game progress level.

I used a formula for every Merc's salary (except in-country RPCs). Static and Henning have lower salaries than expected because of their age and slower evolution (it's harder for them to learn). I may have to lessen the age penalty in the salary formula.

You'll find Kingpin's men in a few other sectors also. I can't control their behaviour, but have noticed you can fight the ones outside of San Mona without getting the ones in San mona hostile. Consider that they don't know you did it. However, once you get the ones in San Mona hostile then they will be hostile everywhere. Why this is different than the behaviour of Tony's gun smugglers . . . I can only guess it has something to do with the coding of the Fight Club and the Chalice quests. The same behaviour will be seen with the Hicks outside the farm -- killing those outside the farm won't turn the farm ones hostile, but killing the farm ones will turn the outside ones hostile. Again, I can only guess it has something to do with the coding of the marriage quest.

That's odd. I just tried that in my game and had no problem. Can you think of any modifications you made to JA2_Options or otherwise that might affect this situation?

I should mention that this first occured with enemies in sector,
which were not yet alerted at that time, probably even still unaware of our presence in sector at all.
Just in case there is a chance it carries over.

Cant imagine any of my changes causing it,
bytewise compare shows these changes in my \data-av\ja2Options.ini:
Toggle Spoiler

and as usual just in case, the changes in \data-AV\cthConstants.ini:
Toggle Spoiler



Probably a local issue if no other player experiences the same,
so dont worry too much about it unless its confirmed by others.

more feedback on stuff experienced during gameplay, unsorted:

"Runtime error [assertion failure line 5879 in file items.cpp blabla
a default attachment could not be attached after merging, this should not be possible"
Happens if i try to extend a retracted stock that is attached to a M25 EBR.
Sidenote: depending on feedback from attachment slots,
the m25 ebr appears to accept more attachments(grip pod, m203pi, ism-v-ir) than the m21 ebr,
although both share the m14 ebr stock.
Btw Trigger Groups 2&3 can not be attached to weapons which are highlighted with cursor over trigger group.
Think there is another item but cant remember which one right now, in case will report it.

The roof tiles at Franks Bar now miraculously disappeared, no changes in game files or ram etc by me,
think i left the sector and returned before it occured but i not sure about that.
New "not disppearing roof tiles" in D5, house with 2 fridges inside&close to mine entrance,
affected tiles IDs: 17205, 17208, 17209, 17368, 17369, 17685, 17845, 17848-17852, 18008, 18009, 18011, 18012

"Gangster" faction turned hostile after some time(~1 day?)

An already running athlete needs 5 AP to cross 1 tile diaogonal, but only 2+2 if he runs "around" the tile,
i.e. athlets need less AP to run in zigzag instead of a straight line, which also partially negates the limited fov caused by running.

There is no option to split the ".30-06 Box, AP match" into mags or single rounds,
click on a Garand with said ammo box on cursor causes crash:
"assertion failure [line 859 in file item.cpp blabla.."

Enemies with 2 mercs standing/crouching/prone on an adjecent tile become invisible when e.g. dropped by attack effect,
(not sure if they can enter that state by simply going prone)
and stay that way until they decide to stand up and move/attack, usually killing at least one of my team(sounds like d&d;)
Other enemy in D5 stayed invisible until my spy entered an adjacent tile, the disguise dropped, spy dead :D
(i noticed enemy presence from spy name turning its color)
tried to spot her with 10xscope, even at 7 tiles she did not become visble(closer was too dangerous;)
Perhaps caused by camo settings values? I noticed the camo folder but didnt take a peek.
I know i can shoot at the tile to kill them before they recover and attack out of invisibility,
but i refuse to shoot at invisible targets in general, or glue tubes to barrels ...

Guido Grimaldi (btw great adddition to the roster):
The 5th skill covers and blocks access to his background on Laptop -> Personnel page.


p.s.
I can switch on/off an isolated Rifle Lam-Flashlight,
but if it is attached to the M25 ebr(and i guess weapons in general)
i get "assertion failure [line 6052 in file items.cpp blabla

p.p.s.
Cant load Beretta Silver Pigeon from within weapon properties window,
only the default way by dropping ammo on the weapon in mercs inventory.
Unload ammo works fine both ways(i.e. click on ammo counter of shift+r-click).
Also the silver pigeon shows up with no base sound volume,
there is not even a zero in the 1st column, only a +1 modifier.
Despite that the weapon appears to have correct <ubAttackVolume> entry in weapons.xml.

I'll check the LAM-Flashlight, the house in D5, the M21/M25 EBR attachments, Retracted Stock, .30-06 Box, & Trigger Groups. Seems like the Trigger Groups will be next to move to the (N)CAF system of attachments. I've got some rl stuff to do atm so will have to check on all that a little later.

I believe the diagonal movement costs more than zig-zag is intentional in the code - there's a thread about that on the forum that I read a while ago. I think it has to do with movement based on square tiles instead of hexagonal tiles.

I reduced the cover system variable a bit for v1.10, and may have to reduce it further. The enemy being invisible in an adjacent tile . . I think started with Sevenfm's improved AI cover and prone additions, but I'm not sure. If so, it's probably because my cover variables are higher than vanilla, and I'll have to reduce them.

Glad you like Guido!

Thank you for the feedback - I'll work on all this for the next update.

The Silver Pigeon . . . displays totally incorrectly in Bobby Ray's, and I have no idea why. All stats seem to be correct, having compared them with other shotguns numerous times. I am at a loss to figure out what's happening with that weapon. I have Leech with it now in my campaign, and will keep working on it.

OK, fixed this one. The problem was that only the boxed ammo was AP Match type. This Magazines.XML fixes it so all the magazines are also AP Match (instead of AP Ball). Unzip and place in your ../Data-AV/TableData/Items folder.

I will move the trigger groups to the (N)CAF system for the next update.

I sync'ed the M14/M21/M25 EBR attachments - you can download the Attachments.XML & Items.XML and install them. Unzip and place in your ../Data-AV/TableData/Items folder

1st thank you for the updates!
However i wouldnt want you to get RL backdraws because of modding,
even if its a gamebreaking bug, so get that stuff done first! :D

Ok, next is only a tiny cosmetic issue of the Tripwire, its mini icon
(aka the one you see e.g. in pop up window when picking up more than 1 kind of item on tactical map)
needs x/y coordinates adjusted and also has transparency issue(wrong color set to appear transparent?)

p.s.
Negative reliability modifier of batteries has impact on Weapons reliability moddifier,
while tritium night sights provides +4

MiA1 Carbine (.30cal): the scope attachment slot lists "Scope+Reflex 4x" as one of the options,
as soon as i attach a Scope+Reflex 4x, it diappears into nothingness.
(checked sector and all mercs inventories in case the program had "teleported" the scope although Skitz had sufficinet inventory space)
Stats of the M1A1 also dont change as to expect on transformation into a "reflex-4xScoped M1A1", or so.


Also, many weapons i find have the current condition value higher than the repair threshold value.
Probably a minor issue as it does not appear to have consequences like crash when usuing such weapons,
(nevertheless i either sell them to Tony or shoot some rounds intil current condition </= repair threshold.


Regarding bug "game locks if pc tries to jump over obstacle and landing tile is occupied":
There are a couple of trees close to the fence in SW corner of Drassen Mine sector,
my sniper noticed 2 soldiers getting stuck there (and happily used the advice from Seven to hit [esc];)
Perhaps move the trees? E.g. put them on the same line as the fence.


Besides, i never got so much repeated attacks on city sectors, 2/h or 5+/day is not unusual, very nice!
Sometimes there is even no enough time to compensate the weapon weardown with Static, imp mechanic and occasional helper.
Plan is to get enough shells commando mortars to P3 so we can flatten the whole palace.
We have 30 shells on day 12 and Biggins(!;) just managed to steal our 3rd mortar from the last attacker in D15,
which he btw defends with Murray "Everybody knows who the best is now, son." McGillicutty :D
