***BATTLEFIELD VIETNAM AI ENHANCEMENT MOD by GRENADEMAN*** Creator: Grenademan Version: v1.1 Game: Battlefield Vietnam Description: This version of AIEV aims to greatly improve the bots, aswell as to make the game feel more polished. It also aims to make the game more realistic and challenging for single player and COOP. This version gives the bots a massive amplification of their abilities, making them more psychotic yet intelligent on the field of battle. And of course, modifications have been made to other things in the game, bringing a relatively new feature to BFV; Ironsights. Prepare for war. *****WARNING****** - THIS IS STRICTLY A SINGLE PLAYER MOD ONLY. ANY ATTEMPT TO PLAY MULTIPLAYER WITH THIS MOD ACTIVE WILL PROBABLY RESULT IN SOME WIERD EVENTS.

Refer to the bottom of this readme to see what's new in this version. Tools used: Battlefield Mod Development Toolkit 2.75. WinRFA Lexicon converter thingy. Having problems? Or just want to comment? Contact: operationterranio[at]hotmail[dot]com Issues/Bugs: - When using the iron sights on certain weapons, don't expect to hit your target in the first few shots. This is to simulate the real thing, such as compensating for breathing, wind, target distance and pose. I have experience in firing weapons, such as the F88 Steyr, and its not easy to hit a target over 100 metres away, even with the scope. This isn't an issue, but I thought I'd let you know before you head out there. - When bots fly the OH-6, instead of going from A to B like normal, they will rise up into the stratosphere and move very slowly. When they see an enemy, they'll usually speed up to engage. - Players or bots are unable to reload in the new BTR-6O passenger positions. - To get music on the loading screens, simply copy all the files (except "menumusic.bik") from %:\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\Music into the %:\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\AIEV\Music. LEGAL: Please refrain from editing my files and going and throwing them into a mod of your own, then pass them off as your own creation. I put my bloody heart and soul into this so I deserve some respect at least!! If you find that there is something that you are just ITCHING to change, then send me an e-mail letting me know what you wanna change and I'll give you your answer. ************************************************************************** Now, onto the good stuff.
