This thread will consolidate release information for Game Remod X (GRX), the current (and hopefully last) version of the ancient Game Remod LIB series. Personally, I don't love the name anymore but I couldn't possibly think of anything else to call it and the title is pretty self-explanatory for what it does. I know I was super original way back then when I named this LIB series. Regardless, to not get sidetracked, I have started a new thread to declutter GRX releases from the now aptly named Game Remod Help & Discussion Thread. The purpose of that thread will be to discuss issues, report bugs, and ask questions concerning GRX. I will keep this thread just for release information.

Beginning with this thread, I have updated how I will deliver GRX. Rather than provide individual files, I am going to provide the entire package as a whole. It's a zipped file that you can unzip wherever you please. It will make its own folders, which further organize each category and release into their appropriate folder. It isn't 1999 anymore and we don't have 56K internet so there isn't much of a need for small releases that have to be updated individually with each change. Within the directory, you will find subfolders for each category (Main LIBs, Custom Campaigns, Default Campaigns, SP Missions, et cetera). Each of these folders will have the individual releases. Future updates will add to and/or update these folders. Within each one you will find the specific project's build data, the LIB files, a README file, and other ancillary files that I might add. There aren't README files for everything just yet but they will come in time.

In addition to the LIBs, I am making available the FATK project folders. Janes Fighters Anthology is 25+ years old and I don't see any reason to "keep secrets" anymore. There's like 10 people still playing this game (including myself) so there's really no reason to prove anything to anyone anymore. Those days are long since past. Maybe if we ever get a Fighters Anthology II that isn't a money suck like DCS (who's excited for F-15E, F-4E, Typhoon, et cetera -- I know I am) we can revisit the mentality but for now, it's here for you to use and enjoy as you see fit. You can find this on my Google Drive, which is linked below.

I am also including a master Excel sheet that I have, which contains a significant amount of information for not only GRX but other stuff as well. It is broken into 5 sections: GRX, Ship Data, Utilities, Future, and Flight Envelopes. GRX contains working notes and information specific to the GRX package. Ship Data is a master repository for how I have been updating carriers in GRX, specific to their weapons and configuration changes and other assorted data. Utilities contains 3 tabs (as of this moment), a calculator that is used to determine a lot of things, information on CMDS systems, and information on RL weaponry. Future is for future enhancements to GRX but nothing "actionable" yet. Flight Envelopes is a repository of flight envelope modifications I have made or may make or just want to save. I know very little about flight envelopes so take everything you see there with a grain of salt. However, in the actual Flight Envelopes tab is a very accurate chart I copied from the SR-71 flight manual showing Mach 1 speeds at every altitude in increments of 1,000 feet from 0 to 100,000 feet and then 10,000-foot increments to 150,000 feet, and finally for 200,000 feet. This chart converts from ft/s to mph, kn, km/h, and m/s rounded to 1 decimal place. This should help anyone doing anything in flight envelopes as the flight envelope speeds in FA are in ft/sec.

Lastly, as a disclaimer for credits, I will make a general statement as it is impossible to provide the most accurate credits possible. Many of the players who contributed to Game Remod X did so over two decades ago and have long since moved onto other things. In many cases, we don't even know who contributed what anymore because of lost knowledge and data. That being said, please understand that I - in no way, shape, or form - have intended to steal anyone's work or take credit for anything that is not mine. Individuals who have contributed to Janes Fighters Anthology and, by proxy, Game Remod X include but are in no way limited to and in alphabetical order: the 77th Squadron, the 369th Squadron, the 714th Squadron, CAG Hotshot, Eagle_114th, ELH (Vietnam map), Gadget, Hawk, JKPete aka Zephyr, Just Mob, Kaptor, Pappy, and USNRaptor. If I missed anyone, it is likely because I simply forgot or do not remember, the omission was hardly intentional. Shoot me a note and remind me please. I will close with saying that any "graphics" (i.e. camos, icons, and shapes) are likely borrowed from other LIBs or the old Shapes & Skins Repository from so many years ago. I claim no credit for any graphical work (it's something I never did or did well).

    Yet another update to the Vietnam LIB because of the MIG21D error and then just because this is how it goes, the LIB was unstable so I added some things. Download the main file for v.1.007.
