PLEASE NOTE: Please note: There will be at least one more beta version before all of the features are finalized. Thank you all for your patience over the last two years that it has taken to get v7 out.

- Fixed the SCAR-H, Glock 18, AK74su, and FN FAL not having particle effects when fired

A new testing version of Elite Force (Beta 5) is available now!

This will be the last testing version before v7 release. In two weeks, provided there are no major issues, the mod will release. That means that v7 will officially release on Sunday, June 7th, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: Please note: There will be at least one more beta version before all of the features are finalized. Thank you all for your patience over the last two years that it has taken to get v7 out.

CHANGES:


MAJOR FEATURES v7

New and altered equipment!
o   Added new weapons: SCAR-H (+3 variants), AKs-74u, MP5K PDW (+suppressed), Colt 9mm SMG (+suppressed), Glock 18 and Glock 19.
o   Added Brettzie's M4A1 as a replacement for the original M4A1! It also has suppressed and Aimpoint variants, for a total of 4 varieties of M4A1.
o   Added two new armor variants.
o   Added the ability to take no weapon!
o   Weapons have received visual tweaks: G36K, MP5 (silenced), UMP (silenced), Desert Eagle
o   Gas and pepperballs are now less effective.

New commands: Sharing is caring!
o   You can now order your AI-controlled officers to share a piece of equipment with you. These are located in a new submenu, called SHARE >>
o   You can now give your teammate a piece of tactical equipment (lightstick/grenade/wedge/optiwand/pepper spray) by pressing melee at your teammate while you have that item equipped.
o   The INVESTIGATE menu has been spruced up. You can now order your team to either MIRROR FOR TRAPS (replaces CHECK FOR TRAPS), MIRROR FOR CONTACTS, or MIRROR FOR ALL, which combines the two commands, but is slower.

New AI behavior!
o   SWAT AI can now be affected by less lethals! There's now a very clear reason why you want to grab a gas mask over helmets for your AI.
o   SWAT AI can now use grenade launcher! When issuing any order which uses grenades, they will use the grenade launcher instead, if it has ammo.
o   SWAT AI, when deploying a wedge, will no longer move out of the way when bumped by a door.
o   SWAT AI will better cover each others' backs when moving to locations (or falling in) and will continue movement actions when distracted by civilians or suspects.
o   SWAT AI will utilize the pepperball gun and beanbag shotguns automatically against uncompliant, running suspects (only while following a FALL IN or MOVE TO order)
o   Suspects will now try to escape when they are compliant, and the player is not watching. Now it's not only weapons that you need to worry about...
o   Suspects now have a random chance to either investigate or barricade, instead of it being based solely on where the suspect spawns.

Upgraded Quick Mission Maker!
o   Have you ever wanted to create your own campaign path? Perhaps with custom levels? Now you can!
o   You can now use custom maps and write your own briefings for the Quick Mission Maker.
o   The Quick Mission Maker now has finer control over suspects and hostages through an ADVANCED MODE.
o   Additionally, you can create a progression and unlock system for your custom campaign.
o   Refer to the section titled QUICK MISSION MAKER CHANGES for more details.

SEF mod updated to V7 Full release
07 June 2020

By eezstreet



The final V7 release is available now!

Download (285.55mb): here


v7 has finally been released, after nearly two years of being in alpha and beta testing. Much of the delay was due to real life issues, and also from my time being taken up by working at VOID Interactive. (Since I no longer work for them, a lot of my time has been freed up) But one of the greatest hurdles was a hard-to-resolve issue surrounding the signature feature of v7:

Sharing

The single greatest step forward in v7 is the ability to share equipment between squad members. To keep things simple, only items from the TACTICAL tab can be shared between team members - this includes grenades, wedges, pepper spray, the optiwand, and C2. It also includes lightsticks. (Do note that officers can only have one optiwand at a time, and that you cannot share something with someone if they are carrying too much weight.)

A piece of equipment can be shared by pressing the B key (default) while holding the item and looking at a team member. Both the giver and the receiver will get a message notifying them of the transfer. If you don't want this to be the same key as the Melee and Check Lock buttons, you can now bind those on alternate keys. (You can now bind Shout and Interact to different keys too, in case you find yourself shouting a lot by accident)



This also works with the AI-controlled officers. A new menu just above the DEPLOY >> menu (called the REQUEST>>) menu allows you to order your AI officers to give you a piece of equipment. Speaking of the AIs and commanding them...

AI and Commands

One of the most common complaints about SEF is that the default command for doors is changed from "OPEN AND CLEAR" to "TRY LOCK." I changed this because OPEN AND CLEAR places more of an emphasis on speed, while stacking up on the door makes the game a bit slower. However, it definitely becomes annoying that you can't quickly issue an OPEN AND CLEAR if you know that the door is locked. Therefore, I compromised. When a door is encountered for the first time, the default command will be "TRY LOCK":



But, once the lock status of the door is known, the default command will change to OPEN AND CLEAR:

OPEN AND CLEAR shows as the default command once the lock status is known.



It's little things like this that can have a big impact on the gameplay itself. But how the AI behaves is something else entirely. Some major complaints about the AI have been addressed, and they've been made smarter:

   SWAT officers will no longer stop to engage suspects. Instead, if you have issued a FALL IN or MOVE TO command, they will continue carrying out the order while also engaging the target. This makes playing on custom maps a lot easier.
   SWAT officers will better cover each others' backs while carrying out a FALL IN or MOVE TO action. They'll actively search for things like blind spots, corners, and doors while moving, and tend to avoid looking in the same areas if they can.
   Suspects are a lot more dangerous. They can now flee if they are compliant but unrestrained (kneeling) and they are much more prone to investigating loud noises, making surprise encounters much more common. Gas and pepperballs are much less effective now, as suspects will flee when affected by them. Keeping the situation under control is now a fairly integral part of the game, rather than something that isn't a concern.

New Equipment
Lots of equipment has been added, including:
   Colt Model 635 9mm SMG
   H&K MP5K PDW
   AK74su
   FN SCAR (with aimpoint, suppressor, and aimpoint + suppressor variants)
   FN FAL
   Springfield Armory XDM Pistol
   Glock 18
   Glock 19
   "No Weapon" option (at least one weapon must be taken)



And some equipment has been improved:

   The Desert Eagle has received a remodel.
   The M4A1 now uses Brettzie's popular M4A1 model. This includes aimpoint, and aimpoint + suppressor variants.
   Several vanilla models have received reskins to correct mistakes.


The FN FAL in action.



If you want to give all of this new equipment a try, there are now Weapon Lockers at the beginning of the training mission which allow you to change weapons.

Quick Mission Maker

The first thing you'll notice when booting up the mod for the first time however is that the main menu is completely different:

The new main menu.



The "Play Quick Mission" option has been removed. Why? Because Quick Missions are now accessed through either the Career option, or through multiplayer. Quick Missions can now have unlocks, progression, and custom maps. They appear as a new career path option, meaning you can now use Permadeath and stat tracking for Quick Missions. And as a bonus, there's a new mode available: Hardcore Mode. Hardcore Mode is a bit like Player Permadeath in that your career ends once you die, but your career ends once you have any kind of mission failure, such as civilians being killed, bombs exploding, etc.

The Quick Mission Maker in general is a cool concept, and one which I want to expand upon further. Unfortunately in the vanilla game, the tool is very underbaked - you couldn't even rearrange the missions in a pack. I've also added the ability to write custom briefings, to disable certain tabs (such as Civilians, Suspects, etc), to have traps and mission scripts appear, and I've also added an ADVANCED MODE for civilians and suspects, to allow serious fine-grained control over the spawning of them.

Closing Thoughts

This has been only a small snippet of the numerous changes that v7 provides. If you want to see the full changelog (please do, it's pretty massive), you can view it in the downloads section, or by going to the mod's GitHub page. You can also view the full source code for the project there, but it is provided as a ZIP download as well with this release due to popular demand.



Thank you everyone for the support in developing this mod. I have received hundreds of emails and private messages with nothing but kind words and ideas for where to take the mod further. I kind of consider the mod to be in a complete state, but I still have my own ideas for where to go next. As always, the mod is open source under the GNU GPL license, and anyone can contribute to the development of the mod.

Recently, the North America server has been shut down due to a lack of funding. PayPal has put my account in collections for the server funds, and I can't get it out due to their staff being unavailable because of COVID-19. The server will be restarted once PayPal is up again, and I can use previous donations to get things sorted out. In the meantime, if you are interested in donating to the cause, I would recommend using Patreon for monthly and one-time donations. https://www.patreon.com/eezstreet

Once again, THANK YOU!

   SWAT AI now uses grenade launchers correctly.
   SWAT AI can no longer do direct impact damage with grenade launchers.
   SWAT AI no longer moves out of the way when bumped by a door, if they are deploying a wedge. Note, if they are moving into position to deploy the wedge, they will still move out of the way.

   Optimized SWAT AI pathfinding for Close Door, Deploy Pepper Spray, Deploy Taser, and Mark With Lightstick commands.
   You can now issue a DEPLOY WEDGE command on an open door. When used, officers will close the door and then deploy the wedge, instead of having to issue two separate commands. (note, it was possible to have officers wedge doors open when using the Speech Command Interface. This has been fixed.)
   TOC now responds to SWAT AI reports.
   CHECK FOR TRAPS has been renamed to MIRROR FOR TRAPS and requires an optiwand to be equipped on an officer to use.
   MIRROR/SCAN DOOR has been renamed to MIRROR FOR CONTACTS

   After checking a lock, the default command context option will be "Open and Clear"
   When aiming at an uncompliant civilian or suspect, the default command will change to a DEPLOY command which suits the situation.

   Added new admin permission, "View IPs". When a role has this permission, it can see player IPs in the WebAdmin interface.
   Added new admin permission, "Toggle Voting". When this is used, voting can be temporarily disabled.
   Added new admin permission, "Toggle Player Voting". When this is used, a player's voting rights can be temporarily taken away.

   Renamed "Zoom" in Controls to "Aim Down Sights/Zoom"
   Renamed "Melee" in Controls to "Melee/Check Lock/Give Item".
   Added an entrance selection box to the debriefing menu, so you don't have to sit through an extra loading screen to change the entrance.
   Added ability for actors to be hidden based on system time/date. Currently only used in one place (there is a Jack-o-Lantern in the Training mission that shows up on Halloween)
   Added console command: "swapweapon" which opens the weapon cabinet screen
   All reserved keys are now editable. The "RESERVED" category has been renamed to "NUMBER ROW"

   Added new keybind, "Check Lock"
   Added new keybind, "Give Item"
   Added new keybind, "Drop Lightstick". Added by popular request, it lets you drop lightsticks like the original game did (instead of throwing)

   Added new keybind, "Shout For Compliance" (only shouts, doesn't interact with things)
   Added new keybind, "Interact" (only interacts, doesn't shout)
   Added 21:9 resolution options to the menus (2560x1080, 3440x1440, 3840x1600)
   Removed "Instant Action" from the main menu.
   Removed "Play Quick Mission" from the main menu.
   Added option to make a Quick Mission Maker career in the Career menu.
   Removed gametype selector on Host Game menu. Replaced it with a selector for Quick Mission Maker missions or Missions.
   Removed CO-OP QMM gamemode (you can still play Quick Missions in CO-OP but the interface makes much more sense and doesn't use a separate gamemode)
   The chatlog now uses a minimum of 2 digits when showing the day, month, hour, minute, and second.
   The effects of each grenade are now based on the distance to the affected individual.
   The suspects loadouts and equipment for each mission has been revised and updated to be more in line with the descriptions of the briefing, as well as featuring some of the new weapons.
   CS Gas now has a somewhat random effect. Sometimes it might fail to gas someone immediately if they are right next to the grenade. Generally, it works better as the grenade is closer to the person.
   Pepperball gas cloud radius reduced by 50%. You need to aim closer to the face to get an effect.
   Pepperball gas cloud update rate changed from 0.6s to 1.0s, so there is sometimes some random lag in the effect occurring.
   Pepperball effect is random. Sometimes it will take multiple shots to affect someone.
   Pepperspray cone reduced by 50%, you need to aim closer to people's faces now.
   Recoil is now affected by arm injuries.
   Added a unique GUI icon for the Less Lethal M870
   Auto-Downloads are now enabled by default.
   Fixed SEF bug: Taunts would sometimes not elicit a response, now they do it at a consistent 10% rate.
   Fixed SEF bug: Shooting a bomb trap now causes it to detonate, instead of silently becoming disarmed. It will trigger the "Tripped Trap" penalty when you do so.
   Fixed SEF bug: SHOTGUN AND CLEAR and associated actions would not work very well, and sometimes lead to bumping and fighting at entrances.
   Fixed SEF bug: Melee was not punching people, instead it was checking locks when near a door (you now must always aim at a door in order to trigger the check lock dialogue)
   Fixed SEF bug: G36K, Suppressed G36K, Silenced MP5, and Silenced UMP were using the wrong texture set
   Fixed SEF bug: MP5SD6 didn't have an animation for firing in full auto or reloading from empty
   Fixed SEF bug: Some voting types (ie voting for map) used the team count instead of the total client count
   Fixed SEF bug: In WebAdmin, all admins had the same name (it now shows the correct alias)
   Fixed SEF bug: In WebAdmin, when room names are turned on, the chat color turned white
   Fixed SEF bug: Flashbang grenade launcher rounds did less direct damage than other round types
   Fixed SEF bug: Officers would look away from the door when ordered to Mirror Under Door.
   Fixed SEF bug: Typo in AP ammo description
   Fixed SEF bug: Wrong tooltip on entry selection on All Missions campaign
   Fixed SEF bug: Frequent crashes when using the mod in conjunction with the Frosty's Playhouse Snitch mod
   Fixed SEF bug: Tasing officers with the Cobra Stun Gun melee did not trigger "Tased a fellow officer" penalty.
   Fixed SEF bug: The Server Setup panel, when used to restart the game, would set the game to be Barricaded Suspects.
   Fixed SEF bug: Lowready was triggering when the flashlight was on (the vanilla game disables this)
   Fixed SEF bug: M4super90 and Nova Pump had wrong ironsight positions
   Fixed SEF bug: Sometimes the player can be seen wearing a gas mask and M4A1 carbine that they don't have.
   Fixed SEF/TSS bug: If the Graphic Command Interface is used, and the EXIT MENU button is disabled, and aiming at a door, nothing would be highlighted (the menu would be broken). This is triggered by bad logic in TSS code but only visible if SEF or another mod is used.
   Fixed TSS bug: Some buttons and other things have missing text in 1600x900 resolution
   Fixed TSS bug: The gunshots that play on Northside Vending and Amusements from the laundromat wouldn't play. (They worked in the vanilla game, broken in the expansion)
   Fixed TSS bug: The gunshots that play on the A-Bomb Nightclub near the entrance wouldn't play. (They worked in the vanilla game, broken in the expansion)
   Fixed TSS bug: Grenade launchers would do maximum damage at all times, even when fired across long distances, as long as it didn't bounce. It uses new mechanics now to determine the damage.
   Fixed TSS bug: You can now swap between sniper viewports after a sniper has reported a contact (If "Press Page Up to view sniper viewport" appears), instead of there being a cooldown.
   Fixed TSS bug: The map list, map name, and map author on the Host Game and Server Setup menus did not display HTML color codes properly.
   Fixed TSS bug: Highground volumes now work correctly on Victory Imports Auto Center and Meat Barn Restaurant. (config bug not map bug)
   Fixed TSS bug: Pepperspray cone was reduced when standing still, which made you less likely to hit your target. It's now a constant amount.
   Fixed TSS bug: Various typos in Food Wall briefing docs refer to Jimenez as "Columbian" and not "Colombian" (thanks to JalapenoPepsi for pointing this out)
   Fixed TSS bug: Some custom maps in the SWAT 4 base game (non-expansion) did not have objectives in TSS (thanks to SS for the fix)
   Fixed TSS bug: The player was able to melee people while spraying with pepper spray or firing.
   Fixed TSS bug: The player could control the officer viewport while reloading, switching weapons, or using an item. This allowed for an exploit where players could move while placing C2, arresting people, or picking a lock.

Map-Specific Changes
   Fairfax Residence
   The front door/garage door may be randomly locked or unlocked.
   Various doors around the house can be randomly locked/unlocked/open.

Quick Mission Maker Changes
   IMPORTANT NOTICE: Quick Mission Maker missions are no longer played through the special menu. Instead, you need to make a career for them, through the Career menu.
   This means that you can use the Permadeath, Career CO-OP, and stat tracking features present for regular campaigns!
   Quick Missions are now saved in SEF/Content/Scenarios. You can share them with your friends!
   You can now rearrange the order of the missions within a Quick Mission Maker pack.
   You can now choose to have missions unlocked one-at-a-time for a Quick Mission Maker pack, or have them all unlocked at the start. (Enable Progression)
   You can now assign an unlocks system within a Quick Mission Maker pack. (If unlocks are not available for the pack, the New Equipment tab will be disabled)
   You can now use custom maps in a Quick Mission Maker pack. Custom maps force you to use a custom briefing, and all "Use Campaign Settings" options are disabled, as well as the briefing audio.
   You can now disable equipment in a pack. For instance, you can have a pack of missions which only has non-lethal weapons.
   You can now disable the mission briefing audio in a Quick Mission.
   You can now write custom briefing text for Quick Missions.
   You can now force level scripts to function like they would in a campaign (note, this may cause instability)
   You can now allow traps to spawn in the level.
   You can now allow dispatch audio to work in a Quick Mission.
   The hostages and suspects that spawn on a level can be more finely controlled through an "Advanced Mode" that allows editing details such as individual character morale, weapons used, and even what voice they have.
   Removed the per-map limits on suspect/civilian counts. (You can now have up to 999 suspects and/or civilians on a map)
   Added a new objective type: "Rescue as many civilians as possible." This is similar to Rescue All Civilians, but if a suspect downs a hostage, it does not fail the mission.
   In the Host Game menu, you can now choose to create a Quick Mission Maker rotation as opposed to a regular Mission rotation.
   NOTE: Any pack-specific properties (progression, unlocks, disabled equipment) do not function unless used in a Career CO-OP game.
   Notes entry field size increased from 500 to 4000.
   NOTES tab renamed to TEXT.
   You can now choose to disable the Timeline, Suspects, and Hostages tabs on the briefing.
   The level loading screenshot and text will display if you have "Use Campaign Objectives" marked.
   The INVALID stamp over the briefing will no longer display if you have "Use Campaign Objectives" marked.
   The INVALID stamp over the timeline will no longer display if you have "Use Campaign Objectives" marked.
   The INVALID stamp over the Civilians and Suspects portion will no longer display if you have "Use Campaign Settings" for Hostages or Suspects, respectively, checked.
