TOPIC: Olustee Map - Released

Olustee Map - Released 2 years, 8 months ago #1

I'm pleased to announce the first release from our special mod map team.

Download Link

Scourge Of War: Gettysburg
Olustee Mod
Version 1.0
Author: Crikey

Important: You must have patch 1.4 or later to use this mod. Download it at www.scourgeofwar.com/downloads.shtml

The map portion of the mod works in multiplayer, but the USCT Troop mod does not.

This pack includes the Olustee Map, Olustee Sandbox OOB, and the USCT Troops Mod. Once the installer is finished, simply start the game, go to your Modifications menu, and enable the "Olustee" and "SoW - USCT mod". The map and OOB with the USCT Troops will be available in your Sandbox menu.

Please note - The USCT mod includes a mod specific loading screen. This is disabled when the USCT mod is de-selected in the mod selection screen

Credit is due to Louie Raider, Jolly, Davinci and 2nd_Tx for the various sprites, 3D files and textures used in this mod.

Crikey - You have made the NSD History list - being the first modder to have a map released.

Congratulations - and excellent map!

I'll also add that Little Powell worked hard on getting this map tested, and onto the forums!

I have been in woods just like this and it seemed so real to be moving around in them. What great maps.

This map is so great I'll have to make a Blondie scenario for it!

Re: Olustee Map - Released 2 years, 8 months ago #14

How did that last post not get put on the other map release thread? Could someone move it (Blondie one)?

The original Olustee map was beautiful in itself, but with the new engine the whole environment comes to life. It's a beautiful piece of work, and the introduction of the USCT sprites are a welcomed addition to the SOW database.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.

Re: Olustee Map - Released 2 years, 8 months ago #16

The more I play this map the more I like it, very nice addition to my small collection of maps.

A curious thing happened yesterday while playing a game. I was playing of course this excellent map, with my own, custom Black regiments oob.

At one point in the battle I was being bombarded by arty so I gave the orders to one particular regiment to lay down, and cover their heads. Once I gave that order the regiment simply vanished right before my eyes. They no longer existed...

Very weird but I am pretty sure that it's the oob, and has nothing to do with the game. I'm still trying to figure out the oob's which for some reason or other just really confuses me, I just can't grasp this...

The same happened to me, in the game with the invincible captured gun. Which I've posted to Support.

It is, indeed, a great looking map, but unfortunately it would not work in MP. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, or maybe I just missed a notice that said it is only for SP. A great pity I won't be using it much since my play is almost all MP.....but it is very well done. Congratulations.

Hmmmm, just now tried the Olustee OOB on the Olustee map and it crashed upon startup, four straight times. Other OOBs work just fine on the Olustee map. And yes, I have the USCT and Olustee OOB selected on the Modifications page.

The MP issue is being looked at. Similar issues to those reported on Valverde.

Oob issue .....if you're sure the USCTS mod is enabled but it still crashes then you'll need to post your Error log (sow log) entries so we can see why.

Thanks.

Just a reminder that the map portion of the mod works in multiplayer, but the USCT Troops mod does not.

Hate to be the party spoiler, but Mr.Norton tells me the file is unsafe? Is this possible?

Re: Olustee Map - Released 3 months, 2 weeks ago #25

Mr. Norton is wrong. It's safe.

Yes,

Mr. Norton is wrong. I get that almost every time I download something for SOWGB> I just end up saving it and then take the comp offline, disable the anti-virus and then install it. Works every time.
