Corrected Helicopter dipping-sonar doctrine file (HeloDipping.txt)

Note: Although the above file fixes problems with how AI-helicopters use their dipping sonar, it can also interfere with the player's control of his helo when playing as a FFG-7. If you intend to use this file, keep a copy of the original just in case! Hopefully, Sonalysts will give us an official, updated file soon.

Clive Bradbury's playable Ohio-class SSBN mod
Complete with launchable nuclear missiles!

The playable Ohio is based on the stock 688i platform and involves considerable
changes to the 'database' files in order to provide the correct speeds, crush depth,
sonar suite, and weapons. Please follow the installation instructions very carefully.

What it is - SCX is a community-created mod for Sub Command. It adds new subs, ships, aircraft, weapons and sensors, as well as 'tweaking' the originals for added realism. SCU (Sub Changer Utility) is an add-on to SCX II that allows the player to control other sub classes in addition to the 'stock' Los Angeles, Seawolf and Akula subs.

SCX/SCU (Simple Installer Version)
(42 MBytes)

This installer combines the SCX II and SCX IIc update packages as well as the ESM Fix so you don't need to install any of them again. Furthermore all changes for the SCU are done as well, so all you have to do is select your Submarine of choice (don't try to use the InstallPlayableSub.exe - you don't have to). Same goes for the batch files which are still in some of the directories ... simply ignore them. The only optional thing you can do is use the SC SoundEdit Tool (which is included in this installer) and add the buoy sound which is mentioned in one of the ReadMe's.

After installing the SCX Package there is no going back to stock Sub Command unless you deinstall and install it again. There is no JSGME Tool or other such thing included in this installer.

Big Thanks to the SCX Team - you guys did a great job. I just put a new wrapping on the gift package.
