@Morpheus....I don't think I have the right 'civil_objects' ......the one I have (and doesn't show loading properly) is Civil_Objects_JR_1.95.zip.

Is there an updated one required for this mission?

 

Thanks

You have the good version, the mod has not/will not be updated 🙄 The only thing you can do is to edit the mission to disable mod needed:

1-after saving original mission open the .miz with WinRAR

2-open the file "mission" with Notepad++

3-edit/delete the section "[requieredModules]" to "--end of [requiredModules] you can now open it in ME

4-edit your mission, then save it

I downloaded the mission and I saw police car on screenshot (I don't have Syria map) the only thing you have to do (I thiink) is to replace police cars with another vehicle unarmed

@Morpheus.....thanks very much for your help and extensive instructions for a fix.  I learned a lot about missions, MIZ and LUAs in this little exercise. Really appreciate the schooling.

Hi hope someone can point my in the right direction here I have just downloaded the A-4E-C mod and put it into the saved games folder. When I start DCS the theme icon is grey with the word DCS in it, is there anyway of changing it to the right picture of the aircraft.

 

Please see attached pic.

 

Thanks Daz.

You probably are using version 1.4 of the Mod ... the beta of version 2.0 does include an Icon, like this:

You could modify your version 1.4 to have the same icon, but it is easier if you just upgrade to the version 2.0 ... get it on the project Discord:

you could employ the "User Theme" feature of DCS, to customize the desktop with your own images and music, like this:

 

 

looks complex, but it’s actually pretty easy to do.

im tryining to install a custom object but it wont let me do it from savedgames/ mods and dcs gives warning from main game folder , anyone have an ideas?  the install lua for the file is this ;  am i supposed to put paths  where it says current mod path?

 

Name of your Mod inside DCS
declare_plugin("Static Object Example",
{
    installed      = true,
    dirName           = current_mod_path,
    version         = "2.5.6 Open Beta",         
    state         = "installed",
    developerName= "Grajo",
    info         =_("Basic Static Object Example "),    
    
}
)
        
---Mounts relative path to EDM models
mount_vfs_model_path    (current_mod_path.."/Shapes")
---Mounts relative path to Textures
mount_vfs_texture_path (current_mod_path.."/Textures/")


--List of models/props to be loaded. Loads .lua in root of this entry file which contains each objet properties
dofile(current_mod_path..'/SO_Example.lua')

How is the folder structure laid out??

 

If you want I can have a look?

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
