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.

Ed some of the descriptions in bobby ray overflow the textboxes, overlapping with the text of another weapon.

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.

Maybe AV uses "Militia use sector equipment" option in .ini?

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..
