As the title suggests this has every BAS addon made to date such as the Tonal mod and their outstanding Blackhawks. It even includes all necessary addons that the BAS stuff needs to run. In addition are several missions that demonstrate the features of their US Special Forces Helicopters and Special Forces Troops as well as the Insurgency campaign for Tonal. What more can I say? BAS are legends in OFP modding: download now!

Set on the south east coast Africa, and combined with BAS OPFOR, it offers a wide variety of environments and battlefields for OFP, and a scenario / theme to open up new missions in the Tonal world. The Tonal project has taken a very long time make, with countless hours poured into it over this year (2003) and before. But it is not perfect, so future versions will finalize things like urban models and vegetation (see below). Being larger than the standard BIS islands, the Tonal isle can be very demanding for a PC, so the more powerful machine the better, especially for mission editors. Use of fog in places like the jungle does make the lag much more playable, the jungle was always intended to be used with weather fog limiting the view distance. The Tonali 1 isle is a extra bonus peripheral island, small and fairly rough, it is a lower-end isle for smoother editing and gameplay, a bonus for lower end PC players. There is a lot of space on the Tonal isles, so explore ;) ========================================================== BAS OPFOR: ========================================================== The bas isle is intended to be used with the BAS OPFOR African units. The rebel and government soldiers and vehicles can be used for all sorts of african based conflicts on the isles. See the included BAS Tonal File for detailed information on the Tonal Background. The islands have been built around government, rebel, civilian and militia areas, the OPFOR addon provides units who fit and fight well in each area. ========================================================== Texture Notes: ========================================================== The island land textures are custom made, with transtions generated in Visitor 2, then hand placed in wrpedit and wrptool. The jungle land texture was taken from a google search, then edited. I haved tried to find its orginal source but have not so far. 2 other textures are edited versions of royalty free textures found online. Some base base Textures are from original BIS resistance textures. The runway textures at the main desert airport were made by Leone, some edited by nagual. So special thanks to Leone for going to the trouble of sending a CD full of textures through the mail. A small number of jungle plant textures were orginally edits from textures in the Deadly Dozen : Pacific Theater game, they have been edited since then and mixed with totally new textures. Aside from the above, the majority of custom textures were hand made by BAS texturer Ebud, who put countless hours into the island textures, many based from reference pictures of real african places. ========================================================== Known Issues: ========================================================== Map lag: due to the size of the map, and detail of the terrain in the central and western area, the editor and ingame map is sluggish. When zoomed in to around medium it can be hard to click / double click on depending on the power of your PC. Zooming out further or all the way in often helps when mission editing. Setting land textures to 512x512 in OFP prefrences can also help. General Lag / system intensive: As said earlier, the Tonal mainland is resource hungry. It best to find a good balance between veiw distance, terrain and other video settings. Misc Model bugs: with lots of custom models, many are some of the first models by nagual, expect some anomalies somewhere, there's sure to be something missed. ========================================================== Mission Notes: ========================================================== All missions are considered bonus items, so enjoy them for what they are worth. In the Insurgency campaign, sometimes you are granted CAS (untested in mp). To call in an AREA or PRECISION strike you need to select it, then click on the map where you want the Area or strike point to be. The CAS mission will begin after clicking the map. ========================================================== Future Versions: ========================================================== The first version of Tonal isle will be improved upon sometime in the future. More work will be done on jungle objects, city objects and details, general lods, bug fixes and more scripts and sounds. Grasses and trees will also still be added and improved. This will take time, but with 1.0 out it can be done at its own pace (better than releasing 1.0 next year) The general layout will remain the same. Potentially more terrain in the future, like a seperate island somewhere out in the ocean, depending on map lag. The main airport will also get some more attention after the models are finished. The main focus of future updates will be improving performance, work on the Tonali's, and continuation of the ongoing Insurgency campaign. More information, updates and mission packs can be found on the Ballistic main site and: http://ballistic-studios.com/nagual/isle/ ========================================================== Scripts: ========================================================== ************************************* Mist To activate TJ's excellent ground mist script (good for jungle swamps), exec the following line in an game logics init field: [this,.7,500,1] exec "\bas_o\s\mist.sqs" [Object,Delay,Lifetime,Velocity] exec "\bas_o\s\bas_mist.sqs" [Object,Delay,Lifetime] exec "\bas_o\s\bas_sand.sqs" [Object,Delay,Lifetime] exec "\bas_o\s\bas_mist2.sqs" The higher the delay, the less strain the mists puts on the PC, but makes the mist thinner. Really thick mist looks good but needs a strong PC. ************************************* MP Video Options To include a dialog in MP missions for setting terrain detail and view distance, the following can be used: Description.ext: #include <bas_i1\s\bas_MPvideo.hpp> Init.sqs:  exec "\bas_i1\s\vidoptions.sqs" Ingame Radio Trigger:  exec "\bas_i1\s\dlg_video.sqs" ************************************* River Crossing: To prevent AI from going prone in jungle swamps, you can use a river crossing script by Rom: Triggers (any amount of trigger covering watery areas) setup like: Size Anybody Present Repeated Then exec in a gamelogic or unit init: [trigger1,trigger2,...] exec "\bas_o\s\BASrivercrossing.sqs" Any unit that steps into the trigger area will be checked, and when they go near water they will enter "stand up" mode and not go prone, saving them from drowning in combat. The units will be set back to AUTO mode after leaving the water. ************************************* BAS Blackhawk Map: The main Tonal island is already setup to use the map in the BAS blackhawks. The blackhawk addons will automatically load the island map, you need to add this line to the init field to setup the crosshair (due to larger island size): bas_60mapsize = 512 ************************************* ========================================================== Music: ========================================================== Classname - Title bas_islemuse1 bas_islemuse2 - Survival bas_islemuse3 - Theme bas_islemuse4 - Horizon bas_islemuse5 - Resting bas_islemuse6 - Warp bas_islemuse7 - Home Special thanks to Cassandra G for 6 excellent original music tracks custom made for the project.

Sources included: Spec Ops II Ghost Recon Delta Force Games Under Empty > Sounds > in the Mission Editor there are some new sound objects for missions (can also be used in the “trigger” section of Trigger Effects): * Ambient -Aircraft * Ambient -AK Fire * Ambient -Birds * Ambient -Combat * Ambient -Insects * Ambient -MG Fire * Ambient -Swamp * Ambient -Thunder * Ambient -Wind Other sounds that can be used in “Voice” and “Anonymous” section of Trigger Effects, or with the unit say “sound” command, are: class name // description bas_briefgear = Briefing gear sound, add line *onBriefingGear "bas_briefgear"* without the * to init.sqs for it to play when player check briefing weapons. bas_dooropen = door opening sound bas_doorclose = door closing sound bas_Tvloop1 = ambient radio / tv sounds bas_Radioloop1 = ambient radio sounds bas_Radioloop2 = ambient radio sounds bas_Radioloop3 = ambient radio sounds bas_nature1 = ambient bird/nature sounds bas_swamp1 to 4 bas_jungleS1, bas_jungles2, bas_bugs1 to 4 ========================================================== Unit Faces: ========================================================== Faces for mission editing : BAShostage1 BAShostage2 BASAfrican1 BASAfrican2 BASAfrican3 BASAfrican4 BASAfrican5 BASAfrican6 ========================================================== Group Names: ========================================================== Some new group names have been added for mission editors. They can be used with this line in leaders init field (or in a script): this SetGroupId ["Primary", "Secondary"] or this SetGroupId ["Primary", "groupcolor0"] (to use only first name) Some names are doubled up to allow for more combinations, and with the default BIS names there is lots of options, eg.
