Many people have been asking to have a game that looks like the game I play to post my youtube videos (youtube.com/jugulator01), so i developed a simple step-by-step method.
IMPORTANT: Do this on A SECOND COPY OF THE GAME [a Retail one]. It WILL prevent you from joining regular servers.
make a SECOND copy of RvS 1.6.
install both expansions - athena sword and iron wrath [this last one is better installed in modern systems using the copy-paste method here :Moddb.com
install the updated 2.0 patch available here: Drive.google.com[ drop all folders over the ones with the same name, inside the directory of the game copy you want to mod. example: the mod's 'texture' folder goes over RvS's 'texture' folder, etc. Overwrite when prompted ]
after doing this, you'll have an updated RvS 2.0 but still won't have all the single player goodies.
So, to have them, you'll need to install Elite Counter Terror (UPDATE - V1.27): Moddb.com
and then, after all this, u'll install the latest version of Supply Drop (UPDATE - Feb 2019 version) : Moddb.com
- Install Twi's Tango AI: Moddb.com
I have tweaked this new AI for a more realistic and enjoyable experience [specially on elite difficulty]. Replace the file in the "system" folder with this one [this step is optional]: Drive.google.com
ok. You're almost set. Now, to play with all the modded stuff AND Supply Drop, u'll need to edit the "supplydrop.mod" file in "mods" folder [make a backup, name it supplydrop.mod.bak and move it to another folder - (important! the game may still read the old 'mod' files)]
Replace the file with this one [open and click the download button to the screen upper right] (UPDATE - compatible with february 19 version of Supply Drop: Drive.google.com
- Replace the file 'RavenShield.mod' in the same folder with this one [open and click the download button to the screen upper right] (UPDATE - compatible with ECT 1.27) : Drive.google.com
you should be good to go! to make a simple test, open the game, go to options /custom game / and activate "supply drop".
open a map, equip any supply drop weapon/optics, etc
go to mission. if you see the goggles texture and your teammates fire single shots, u'll have it all set right.
IMPORTANT: Again, this serves ONLY for single player and multiplayer on 2.1 server.
Follow each individual mod's installation guide.
Keep an unmoodded 1.6 version to play online!
After doing this, the game will very much look like another game altogether. You'll also have all the 2d ironsights of RvS 2.0 too
- an optional step would be to install the HD mod, found here:Moddb.com
It's very much recommended [the game looks gorgeous with it]. I made a preset for it too, included in the package. This one mod is independent. You can install it over your unmodded game too.
Good luck and good shooting!
