LHD JUAN CARLOS I (L61) MOD


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Thanks for this superb Mod.

I encountered a problem when trying to activate an existing mission that was using the L61 and F105 frigates from a preceding version of the Mod.

However, the new version 3.2, which includes very interesting new ships, cannot recognize the "old" L61 and F105 ships in my existing missions.

 

The Mission Editor, says it needs the "F105" and the "L61", after I uninstalled the old L61 pack, and subsequently installed the new 3.2 pack.

 

 

Which means that I have to modify in the ME every mission that uses older versions of the ships , i.e., deleteing the ships individually, then replacing them one by one.

I have several missions with huge armadas in the Persian Gulf, involving over 50 ships, that include several instances of the superb F100, F105 and L61.

 

Would it be possible to update the installer of 3.2 so that the ME editor recognizes the new versions of the ships, without modifying each mission individually ?

 

Thanks for your superb work.

If you have uninstalled the previous version and then installed the new 3.2, the folder will have the following name
"desdemicabina-simulation 3.2" just change the name of the folder to the old version. "desdemicabina-simulation 3.1". After your change, I recommend deleting the ship group and deleting the version number from the folder completely and then creating the group again. With the next update you only need to delete the version number from the folder.

Nice to see the Australian ships.

 

Will donate if and when a non-exe OVGME or zip package is released. Some of my squadron mates refuse to install exe mods, so I can't use this in my missions.

Then just upload the folder desdemicabina from your mods folder to Mega or Google Drive and share the link to the extracted folder with your friends.

 

Mega is giving for free 50 Gb of space to share.

 

No reason to not enjoy this mod, apart from beeing 100% safe, but thats another thing.

That's true.
I'm not complaining, the developers have taken the their stand, and that's their prerogative, (and I do have donated).
But IMHO a better solution would be either to make it mod manager compatible, or at least use a (better) common install shield that will let you extract the files directly from the exe. The current install shield, I've never even heard about. It's free though, but even if you install the free one, you can not use it to re-stract packages made with it.

Just do like@Esac_mirmidon suggests, and make a mod manager capable package, either through OVGME, or its successor Open Mod Manager, (same developer,@sedenion) . OMM's latest version was released yesterday with Web repository functionality. So if you're part of a group you can host all your mods for easy access to all members. Of course you might be doing this already with OvGME.
Cheers!

I can understand some doubts about unknown .exe files sources but this Team is around us for some time now and its not only me saying is 100% safe and trusted.

 

Literally hundreds of users have extracted the files from the .exe flawlessly. So just enjoy the mod. Dont worry.

Yes, I agree with that. And I was never worried.
If you can directly extract the files with an "unpacking" program now, that's supercool, and that's news to me as you couldn't do that in the previous version. As far as I know. I tried several "unpackers".
For me it's a little pain to run the installer, copy the files, uninstall and make package for my mod manager. One need that if ones gonna report bugs or issues without having the moderators reminding you "No mods".
So I currently don't use it.
But it is what is, and the developers have taken a stand. No problem for me!
Cheers!

This is not the point of the objection to having the file as an exe file. Files on web sites are sometimes tampered with and the web site owner doesn't know about it. Also, files can be tampered with "in-flight" when downloaded. This is computer security 101 type stuff.

 

We all totally trust the makers of the mod - that is not the issue. The issue is that the mod is being distributed as an exe file that if tampered with can deploy a malware payload to the executing computer without the knowledge of the operator.

 

I have no issues with the exe as a distribution method. Providing a hash for comparison would go a long way to quell the worries of some of the people in this thread. I posted how to do that earlier in the thread.

 

I don't expect this exe to be a big threat vector but that doesn't mean a little "best practice" would hurt - especially on an inherently broken platform like Windows.

I've tried to but the team said No for their reasons.

Don't insist cause it won't happen.
The team appreciates every donation , and will be very pleased to receive yours if you are happy with the content and want more.

Not because you agree with the way its packed ✌️

I've packed that mod several times and is nothing bad related in the process.

The EULA you accepted  during  the install process will not agree so much with that statement!✌️

I have made an edited version of the moose.lua that includes the L61 Juan Carlos as an Airboss capable carrier, along with the new USS America LHA-6.

Short video of it in use, setup at the moment to use spot 5 for landing, but this can be changed if needed. The videos I have seen has them using spot 5.

I know that this is not an important point, and probably it's because I'm not a native english speaker, but I used the word "ask" in the sense that on the Webpage there is a Donation button with the label "Give support with a donation" ... of course, the Mod is free and the visitor can donate or not .. else I would have used the word "request" instead of "ask"  🙂

Hi I've downloaded this file but I don't know how to install ity?
