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 ]
- Update the file "Inventory_t.utx", in the game's "textures" folder (RavenShield\textures) with this: Drive.google.com
update "Open RVS" to version 1.3:
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:
Elite Counter Terror (UPDATE - V1.27): Moddb.com
and then, after all this, u'll install the latest version of Supply Drop (UPDATE - JULY 2019 version) : Moddb.com
- Install the patch for this Supply Drop package: Moddb.com
- And, finally replace both files, in Mod folder:
- 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
Goggles | UPDATED 08.05.2019 ! :
We have finally come to an official method to add the optional and, ahem, somewhat debated goggles overlay. We are now releasing V3 of the goggles, taking all the feedback into consideration. We strongly believe this is the best version ever, but you'll also have the option to use v2 if you prefer.
Download the updated GHUD_t.utx file here [paste it, overwriting the original one in "RvS\textures"]:
.Twi graciously added two console commands for them.
overlay GHUD_t.GG to use the updated v3 goggles [type just 'Overlay' to remove them]
overlay GHUD_t.GGv2 to use the earlier v2 goggles [type just 'Overlay' to remove them]
nvoverlay GHUD_t.NVG to use my custom nightvision texture overlay [type just 'nvoverlay' to remove it and use native Supply Drop one]
important: When changing goggles overlays, you may need to restart the mission for the change to take effect.
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 can see the goggles textures after the steps above and your teammates fire single shots, u'll have it all set right.
IMPORTANT: Again, this serves ONLY for single player gaming!
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
Good luck and good shooting!
