Hi everyone About a year ago or so I ran across a little simple mod someone had made where the fighters moved more realistic when in a battle with one another. In other words they didn't clutter up on one another and would fly more opened. I've looked all over for this mod and I'm unable to find it anymore, so I've been taking a look at squad files and fighter files. (changing numbers here and there as needed) I am still unable to get them to move in this way, so I was wondering if anyone out there knew which lines were in control of how they move about in fights? I'd love to get the fighters flying out there like this small mod did back then. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

[COLOR=black]There was the A Taste of Rebellion Mod from here

[/COLOR]Compiled List of EAW-Demo Mods [Update 02:18:06]

The SpaceUnitsFighters XML had several changes that made fighters moved a bit more realistic in battle you can spot these when comparing the original and the modded files together.

Though it only works for EAW not FOC.

That can easily be changed.

I thought I got the mod from here, just unable to remember the name of it, sorry. Wish I could tho. It was pretty fun. Thats all it changed that I can remember, just the fighters and how they would react to one another once in a fight with another set of fighters.

Rather than the small cluster of the groups flying around and shooting at one another, they would fly out in a bigger area while fighting. Made the dog fights look way better. Also seems that it made the fights last longer between fighters too, due to them flying out and around.

Sad thing is I found the mod here on the filefront place, and I have looked many times of late and just cannot seem to find any trace of it again. Thats why I've been messing around with the fighter squad and fighters xml files, trying to find out what was changed to make them fly in this way. No luck so far :(

I'm sure its in those two files tho. If I remember right, it was the two files that came with the simple mod. oh and yeah it was for EAW not FOC, tho I'm sure it could be done for it as well.

Lets keep looking around, if I found it one time before I'm sure its out there some where.

Back to messing with the files myself as well.

Going to check out that site linked above. See what their files do.
