[MOD] DCS Caucasus Terrain Texture Switcher Mod

Recommended Posts

Motivated by many stunning Caucasus Texture mods, I made this Caucasus Terrain Texture Switcher Mod.

 

It allows players to keep all his/her favorite texture mods under different seasons, but enable preferred ones on-the-fly without tedious deleting/copying/pasting operations

 

It's JSGME ready!

It works similar to my previous Customized Cockpit Texture Mod. You need to put a proper description.lua file in each customized terrain texture folder (those folders can only contain dds files)

.

 

Download from Here

 

update

v1.5: for ob 1.5.5 fix

v1.4: for ob 1.5.4 with caucasus icon captured in Wags video

v1.3: restore land_texture, and building texture options

v1.2: fix missing texture issue (temporarily disabled land_texture, building, and maptexture options)

v1.1: quick fix for missiong options folder

 

 

Install Mod:

1. download the attachment, and unzip it

2. move the 'Caucasus Terrain Texture Switcher' folder to your JSGME mod folder

3. enable the mod via JSGME

 

** below steps are critical as well **

4. enter '\Mods\terrains\CaucasusBase\vfstextures' folder

 

5. put customized texture folder here, e.g. autumn_by_xxx, springother_by_xxx (you can give whatever name to the folder)

 

6. unzip the 'tex_description_lua_pack.zip' in the attachment, you will get 11 lua files (e.g. LandTexture.lua, LandTextureSpring.lua etc)

 

7. copy/paste desired lua file to corresponding customized texture folder, and rename it to 'description.lua'

e.g., 'autumn_by_xxx' is for LandTexturesAutumn, so you should copy/paste 'LandTexturesAutumn.lua' to 'autumn_by_xxx', and rename it to 'description.lua'

'xxxaaaxx' is for Buildings_textures, then you should copy/paste 'Buildings_textures.lua' to 'xxxaaaxx', and rename it to 'description.lua'

 

8. Start game, and in Options->Special->Caucasus, you can decide which texture to load in game, respectively

When I start the game screen remains black:(

 

I hope I'm doing everything right

 

you should unzip all starways zip file, those folders should only contain dds files

 

fixed in v1.1 for missing script :(

v1.3: restore land_texture, and building texture options

 

the texture id are numbers, so all customized must be appended from the end of default.

I inserted some customized from middle which caused missing texture issue

Hi,

 

I used version 1.3 for your mod but I still only get "default" textures to select (see screenshots).

 

Any idea what I did wrong?

 

First, those must be folders, so please unzip starway's texture zip files

 

Did you put proper lua file to each folder? You can find lua files in the zip, also read instruction again

Wont the folders we have placed in the vfstextures folder be removed after an update to DCS world? If so this will mean recopying the folders back into the folder after the update.

 

Cheers

SD

 

if folder, no

 

repair/update only 'fix' files that originally exist and modified/deleted
