The hell is empty. All devils are working now on the B-52 project, under command of Master Ranwers.

Fanboy alert..
I like the approach to create new jungle/tree forests and if it's not too much to demand, I would respectfully request a link to the version for the Hawaiian Islands map if you can share it, Uufflakke, I take it the concept is a fileset for the texture folder + new entries in the load.ini?

Anyway, looks better IMHO. The forests are the only thing I don't like on most Pacific/tropical maps. Keep it up!

Cheers

Tom

I redid the random tree files so now colours match better with jungle.
(Everything still WIP)





@Tom2: Actually I haven't spent time anymore on the forest textures for the Hawaiian Islands. On the screenshots they look quite okay but from a higher altitude or seen from another angle the repetitive pattern is very noticible. The woods.tga's covers just a small area and with extensive jungles the pattern gets annoying. First need to solve that before possible release.
Yes, new woods.tga's goes into _Tex/forest folder + new entries in load.ini.

Suberb Uufflakke, I originally used a dark texture for the jungle but later settled for the wood effect as it appeared more realistic to me than the texture.  You've now managed to capture that darker moody look I originally wanted for the map. ;)

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Thank you Mission_bug!

Great map!

It is possibly a version with less houses on main citys for online games?

Hello Balker, glad you like the map.  As for adapting the map for online play I'm sorry to say as I only play offline I haven't a clue as to how to do that. ;)  The only thing I could do is remove all the smaller buildings from Saigon and Hue and send you a static for that and you could copy and paste it into your existing map folder.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello all, Uufflakke has been working on some tree files for the last week or so specially for this map, they alter both the wood effect and the random trees.

I for one think they look outstanding and send my sincerest thanks to Uufflakke for the time and effort he has put into these, I'm sure you will also be as impressed as I was with the effect. 8)

The link to the new tree files has been moved to the first post with the map link. ;)

Here are some images:

Privateer skin Anatoli.











I haven't added these to the map update as I feel users of the map should decide if they want to add them or not, altough I can't imagine anyone wouldn't. ;)

A comparison of the old and new:

Original.



New.



The new effect is much darker and I think better reflects jungle trees than the original files.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D
