Pook SAM Pack

by
hcpookie


Description:
This addon provides modern Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS) and countermeasures of most of the major real-world IADS systems. Missile performance and behavior based on real-world data and video footage. Real life sounds used where samples are available.
SAM, AAA systems, and Anti-Radiation Missile (ARM) countermeasures are included.

Parts of the addon depend heavily on the RangeMaster addon for parts of the FRL_missilebox, while other parts of the addon do not depend on anything. Some vehicles reside within the RangeMaster addon; therefore use of the RangeMaster mod is implied in this documentation.


Features:
- S300 system (SA-10)
- 9K331/9K332 Tor (SA-15)
- 9K37 Buk (SA-11)
- 9K317 Buk (SA-17)
- 96K6 Pantsir (SA-22)
- NASAMS (AIM-120)
- C-RAM (CIWS ADS)
- MIM-104 Patriot system and support vehicles
- S-125 static and mobile launchers (SA3)


Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.


Included files:
pook_76n6.pbo
pook_sa10.pbo
pook_sa11.pbo
pook_sa15.pbo
pook_sa22.pbo
pook_sa3.pbo
pook_sam.pbo


Usage:
For usage and information instructionss of how to use Pook SAM Pack please refer to the included documentation.


Known issues:
SAM launchers sometimes engages targets that are behind mountains. This is a limitation of the game engine and cannot be avoided. Some script solutions are being implemented to curb this behavior.
Texture RVMATs could be improved.
Stringtables created via online translator, so they may be somewhat humorous.
Missile performance was tested for effect. Behavior in-game may warrant additional updates in future releases. Manual control on missiles may cause erratic behavior. This may be removed in future releases.
Missile engagement ranges based on real-world data. Game engine limitations restrict the ranges, making long-range engagements incredibly limited.
Russian designations are used in the configuration. If feedback warrants, I will consider adding NATO designations as an option!


Future plans:
- ALARM Loiter mode
- Radar arrays for SAM sites
- Missile variations (different missile performance and ranges)
- Russian SA20 systems?
- Add multi-stage rocket booster discard (SA22)
- MEADS system
- THAADS system
- More "Midlife upgrade" systems (3rd world systems)
- Research anti-cruise missile / anti-guided weapon intercept options for game.
- Reload/support vehicles


Notes:
The pook_SA11 pack requires the Rangemaster mod for the SA-11 texture (part of FRL_Missilebox).
The baseline pook_SAM, pook_SA22 and pook_SA15 do not have any other dependencies.
The "ROW" factions of course require their authors' works to be present. They are in their own standalone PBO files, and can be removed if you do not require them to avoid errors in the editor.

Changelog:
v3.1
FIX: C-RAM shadow bug.
NEW: RWR Incoming Missile alerts for some planes. This feature is WIP and only applies to some planes at present. Scripting instructions added for addon/mission makers to add this new alert feature to any plane in-game (including BIS planes).

v3.0
FIX: Missing C-RAM, NASAMS spare tire and fuel can actions.
IMPROVED: Reverted ARM Detect script to original function (no more auto-fire), and moved the detect-then-auto fire feature to a NEW script. Original 2-action sequence is once again the default.
IMPROVED: NASAMS and CRAM targeting capabilities improved.
IMPROVED: ZSU-23-4 and ZSU site burst fire rates reduced to more realistic levels.
IMPROVED: SAM batteries now equipped with 2x magazines to provide better in-game behavior. Average 10 minute magazine reload time. This may be altered in the future if reload vehicle behaviors can be improved, since the AI drive the reload vehicles like retarded monkeys and currently can’t properly navigate terrain to reach the batteries.
IMPROVED: MAZ 7910 CIV factions updated with unique textures and cargo. This will eliminate confusion vs. military models.
NEW: CRAM airburst now ranges to target height; airburst no longer fixed at 250m altitude.
NEW: Counter-missile battery feature for “point-defense” capable SAM’s: 9K33x SA-15, 96K6 SA-22, MIM-104 Patriot, MEADS, and C-RAM ADS. Engagement against SCUD’s and other SSBM’s is being researched.
