Unofficial Patch 1.57ddh

Recommended Posts

I have been playing RT2 on and off for a long time, but only just recently found this site. I hadn't necessarily noticed the errors that remain in the latest official patch, but as an engineer I like things to be correct when possible. Using data from the 'Modding RT2' and 'Historical RT2 Mod' threads, I started a few small projects. And a huge thanks to everyone who contributed on those threads, particularly JeffryFisher and jcco. JeffryFisher created his historically patched exe which corrected the data errors, but also made changes specific for his US History scenario, or for historical accuracy. I could not find anywhere that someone had corrected the errors without additional changes.  I therefore created this patch (replacement exe for RT2_PLAT.exe) to fix the errors without further changes. Since it builds on the official 1.56 patch, I called it 1.57ddh, with the ddh suffix to distinguish it from anyone else's 1.57. The version is changed internal to the file as well and the Main Menu properly reports 1.57ddh. Versions added for GoG.com platinum installations (1.57gog) and Gold CD installations (1.57gld). The content of the readme follows:

Read Me for RT2_PLAT.EXE version 1.57ddh

Corrected 'Auto Plant' input2 (tires) demand by moving the intended value from in2boost to in2demand.
Corrected 'Cannery' input2 (steel, aluminum) demand by moving the intended value from in2boost to in2demand. (x4).
Raised demand of 'Produce Farm' - Fertilizable from 0.5 to 1.0 so that fertilizer demand recovers.
Raised demand of 'Rubber Plantation' - Fertilizable from 0.5 to 1.0 so that fertilizer demand recovers.
Raised demand of 'Sugar Farm' - Fertilizable from 0.5 to 1.0 so that fertilizer demand recovers.
Corrected 'Munitions Factory' input2 (chemicals) demand by moving the intended value from in2boost to in2demand (x2).
Corrected 'Weapons Factory' input2 (rubber) demand by moving the intended value from in2boost to in2demand (x2), and raised rubber demand on entry 2 (x1) from 0.5 to 1.0 so that demand recovers.
Corrected urban demand for milk to match that of lumber and produce, so that demand recovers.
Updated version number to 1.57ddh.
 

Note: From my recent experience, guests can download from the download area, but cannot download files within forum posts. If you then create an account to question or comment on this, you'll notice that you can download from forum posts once you have an account.

Very cool! If you could also change the introduction dates on military factories, loads and cars, then they could appear in time to be used in the Civil War. Then players could use your patch in place of mine (doing without my other meddling).

If you look at my spreadsheets, the red values are things I changed.

I added the zip file to the first post. The zip contains just a replacement exe to put in your RT2 Platinum directory and the readme file whose text is quoted in the first post.

Regarding jeffryfisher's suggestion on changing the military introduction dates, that was one of the things I specifically didn't want in my build for general play, but I can make one, to tentatively call 1.57civ.

Posted to your thread.  https://forum.dune2k.com/topic/23879-historical-rt2-mod/

ps. Unless I missed an update, you never made a sheet for your modified building introduction dates, though I worked them out.
