[1.8+] Fox Defense Contracts (BDAc Addon, Tank Turrets) Update 1.1 American Frontier


Recommended Posts

nIUKWll.png

Fox Defense Contracts is both in itself a mod and an Expansion of BDArmory Continued. The main goal is to add in much more tank turrets for both the ksp war communities and the creative community.

This WIP is soon to have a full official release with a lot of changes coming soon. Mainly QOL and other changes that will bring a bit of freshness to the mod. (I think.) 

I would love to hear suggestions about what to add in and what to change.

Requires: BDAcontinued V1.3.0 or later.


Download Here: SpaceDock Link (1.1) Github Releases Link (1.1) - In case spacedock fails

Installation: Delete any existing FoxDefenseContracts and FDC Armor folders. Then drag and drop the new one into the GameData folder. This is to decrease any incompatibility issues or any parts not found issues!

Yeah but then they'd just be flat textures. I was talking about preserving some detail instead of losing it.

I'll see what I can do. I mainly did these for Penguins and Tapes fall of kerbin series and they were mostly fine with the snow camo on what they needed. Though never really heard of the whole texture switch thing.

Another question: Do you plan to fill in all the new BDAc bullet types and such now that BDA has a new armor and penetration system? (I ask because these turrets are nice and all but they don't do a whole lot of damage to much of anything in my game. I know you made them initially for Tape and Beardy's Youtube series and they use an older BDA and apparently only recently updated which explains why some of their weapons work now and some don't.)

Yeah, I'll look into porting it to there and probably CKAN as well.

Yep. I just gotta look into how some of the bullets configs and see how they did the penetration values for each bullet. But I definitely will make sure they get their respective bullet types.

Will you make a M60A1/A3 (105mm) and even the Modernized M60 Turret of Raytheon's Modernized M60 Patton (120mm)?

Sure, I can do so. Though I didn't know that it had the 120mm However I read things about it. I'll see if I can incorporate that into the turret as well.

Here's proof that the M60 Patton can too be equiped with the Rheinmetall L/44 120mm/M256:

And for the Modernized Hull and Tracks the SLEP M60A3 And the M60-2000 (The same Modernized M60A3 MBT but with a M1 Abrams Turret), I wished there's a update for Both Never Enuff Dakka and Kerbal Founderies or a Mod for it......

It should work in 1.3 just fine, though @SpannerMonkey(smce) hasn't made any fixes for the new BDAc bullet defs yet. If I recall correctly he even made some improvements to a couple turrets.

Also, I wanna know, how do I edit the damage of "weapontype:ballistic" weapons like these? For Example, the Tiger II Turret?

N3FmOE5.png The bullet mass affects how much "heat" it does to a part. Link to BDAc Wiki  here so that you could change the weapon type. If you change it to cannon make sure to add 
cannonShellPower
cannonShellHeat
cannonShellRadius

I know Kerbal founderies has a continued version. Here's the forum post for it

I'll most likely be able to put the turret in sometime soon.

This is a pretty awesome mod, and I appreciate the variety it adds to my KSP arsenal.  I'm know you play world of tanks, but do you remember Gnomefather's sound mod for that game?  There's a great variety of sounds included in that mod, and while it no longer works for WoT, I have adapted a lot of the old sounds to great effect to mods in KSP.  Might be worth looking into if you're interested.

Yeah, feel free to modify the sounds to Gnomefather's WOT sounds. I've used some of the old and new WOT sounds for some of the tanks firing.

Hey I've made a new Update!

Version: 0.2.0: Bullet variety Update!

- Added M60A3 105MM Turret, and 120MM turret (Stat changes)
- Added Bullet Definitions and Penetration values for all tank turrets
- There are now new bullet types for the older turrets resulting adding tons of turrets for variety. AP, APDS, APC, APCBC, HE, HESH, HEAT, HEATFS, APFSDS, etc

I hope to work closely with the developers of BDAc so that I could condense the amount of turrets though. I want to have 1 turret carry the different types of bullets.

This update also works with 1.2.2 as tested!

I'm guessing with a "fuel switch" module you could have different ammo types in the sph, but you likely couldn't switch on the fly in the main scene.
