This massive update concentrates on totally revamping and correcting the turret systems for the large ships, supplying a large visual upgrade for the laser effects, adding lots of new ships and models, providing some much needed balance issues, lots of bug and others fixes, adding new ships, community created missions, and of course a massive slew of corrections and additions.
*Note you do not need Version 1, this is a full standalone version. If you have Version 1 please delete it then install this version. This update changed almost everything, and I took out some unused files, thus the reason for the full release.
Delete the Star Wars OT folder from your main FS2 directory then unzip and place the SW_OT_BV2 in the main FS2 folder. Then simply re-select it with the launcher.
-If FS2 is installed in a long file path (say Program Files/GOG/ect) then two string errors will pop up when the missions load, but just click OK and the mission will still load. The reason is that the music file paths are a bit long, but other than the slight inconvenience of clicking OK, there isn't anything critical with this issue. The best fix is to move your FS2 install to a shorter file path like C:/Games.
-The TIEs have hyper-drives in order to properly exit missions, but this can be fixed in the future with the use of FRED scripting.
-Since I used the Media VP's there are three missions in the mission simulator (Test, Massive Battle 1, and Massive Battle 2) that are not mine and will not work.
-The Falcon's cockpit is on the wrong side (not really a bug, more of an inconsistency).
-If you do not like cockpits, just delete the 'cockpits-shp.tbm' in the table folder.
-The Falcon and SSD are very low quality compared to the other models, so they are acting as a place holder right now and are very much unfinished.
-I would eventually like to procure a good quality B-wing which matches the other craft in detail.
-Dynamic missions and sets of missions are going to take the front burner now that most of the base for the mod and balance is set-up. As always, I am not an expert FREDer so any assistance would make the missions would be better quality. Others (such as MetalDestroyer) are even producing their own missions, which is just as awesome!
