BF1942 Weapons Modification (by Recruit Snyder/Schuetze Schneider)

HANOMAG ANTI AIRCRAFT & MEDIC & SUPPLY VEHICLE


I've added a second top mounted MG 42 (500 rounds, but since the Hanomag still is
the supply vehicle in-game -> unlimited ammo). (After German intelligence had received reports that
the Allied forces have introduced a new APC halftrack with a 10.5 howitzer ...) :-)))
No, seriously ... this Hanomag is a valuable support vehicle for the Wespe and P IV and Tiger tanks.
Placed near a tank, the new Hanomag supplies ammo and protection against Allied dive bombers. The armor
still is weak, so don't be a hero :-)

In order to have enough space for the additional MG and ammo supplies, seats # 4-6 had to go :-)
So this new Hanomag is a 3 seater (keys 1, 2, 3)
Two new skins (Africa camouflage and Europe) were necessary to match the new weapon. The top was modified
and some decals (red cross) added - to remind players that this vehicle can heal wounded soldiers like a medic.


INSTALLATION

This package contains:
- Readme
- Objects.con
- hanomag_f.dds.AFRICA
- hanomag_f.dds.GREY


Copy the new "Objects.con" to the folder "objects/vehicles/land/hanomag" in the main directory of BF1942.
Thus your Hanomag will get the second MG (seat # 3). Unfortunately, seat # 3 will not show up in the little 
vehicle icon in the lower part of the screen when you're inside the Hanomag. But seat # 3 is fully functional.

Copy "hanomag_f.dds.AFRICA" to the folder "texture/Africa" in the main directory of BF1942.
Then rename the file to "hanomag_f.dds".
Thus your Hanomag gets the new skin in the Africa maps.

Copy "hanomag_f.dds.GREY" to the "texture" folder in the main directory of BF1942.
Rename to "hanomag_f.dds".
So the vehicle gets the new top and decals in the European maps.

Done.
______________________________________________________


Save/rename your original files before you make changes. The old textures for Africa and Europe have identical file 
names (in different folders), if you save them in one folder, they need to have DIFFERENT names (like 
"hanomag_f-Africa.dds.BAK" and "hanomag_f-EUROPE.dds.BAK")

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to have your changes take effect immediately, 
PLEASE rename your old files AND move them to another place on your 
machine (e.g. create a new folder "backup"). In some cases the game
still reads your old renamed files instead of the new ones although the
new files have the proper file name.



This Mod is Single Player only, doesn't work on MP servers (unless the same Mod is installed there).
You need to have your "Objects.rfa" extracted to modify the .con files. Use Moseley'S RFA Extractor and
read his instructions.

If you just want the new textures ... this doesn't affect MP mode.



If you wish to "uninstall" this little tweak or connect to a MP server, just place your original "Objects.rfa" 
back in the "Archives" folder. All the "technical" changes disappear, you still keep your modified textures. :-)
