wow, its been a while

I stopped playing DEFCON a while ago but I noticed that people have been following this thread to my site. I didn't think there was much interest in the mod beyond some friends and the few people who ask me for it directly, but what the hell. You can find a link to it here: http://www.lipstadt.com/n...

I'm away from the house at the moment - Ill try to have a released version by the end of the weekend. Maybe by Friday. If anyone has suggestions for an appropriate font for the NATO theme (as in, something used by NATO or at least the US Military ideally for maps or a threat board) I'd love to hear ...

Huh. No comments whatsoever? Not even to say it sucks?

I guess there's no interest in a realism mod. Oh well.

A better way is to extract main.dat into a Defcon\data directory. Any file found in there will replace the default one in the main.dat archive structure on run time, and you wont damage the default install. Just make sure they are in the same place (i.e. in the \data\graphics directory in the case o...

[MOD] Able Archer - MIL-STD-2525b

I bought DEFCON about a week ago. I have had a blast playing it, but I knew something was missing. It wasn't until I was playing some solitaire TacOps on Wednesday, that it occurred to me what was missing - NATO compliant symbology !

Two simple icon questions

Is it possible to- 1)change the placement of the "small icons" - e.g. fighters and bombers on a carrier? 2)stop the African/Asian/Russian icons from flipping the bitmap? I've made a mil-std-2525b/NATO app-6a symbol mod, but some symbols rely on characters, and i don't want them backwards :...
