Three more curved road maps
« on: April 05, 2019, 10:57:49 AM »

I mostly play missions with ground attacks on moving convois or single cars or tanks, and the roads make the difference here. So i made tree more maps with curved roads:

SmolenskCR
ProkhorovkaCR
MTOCR

As a base i took modded map versions, i don't know who made them. There seem to be more then one modded map version in some cases, one version better than the other, but finally i had to took one. But its quite easy to extract the roadplates and to use them and the reworked map_h.tga also with an other version, i assume.

For the Prokhorovka map i did not fix road plates hanging over the next lower height field. These can be fixed only using the 3D view of the map builder and this is a very hard task for about 4000 kilometers of roads. But the map is pretty flat and such plates are rare for this and the effect also only visible when flying quite low.

To keep the trains running in did not change the railroads.

The Smolensk and Prokorovka maps need also the enclosed textures with BAT, i think they are allready installed in VPMedia. As i hope, the MTO map doesn't need additional textures, but it needs the additional desert road plates also enclosed. Read the _installation.txt for that.

Add to your all.ini:
SmolenskCR   SmolenskCR/load.ini
ProkhorovkaCR   ProkhorovkaCR/load.ini
MTOCR   MTOCR/load.ini

I hope installation works.

WOW  8) I must test this in my game.
This is a BIG change for this game and a pleasure to view a more realistic landscape with such roads on it.

Thank You!

Good work.   How about giving Kyushu map a try?

It's relatively small and, really, the roads only need to be around the coasts where land is more flat.  Most cities are near the coast which could be connected with the curved roads.

Congratulations, Nowecat. This looks really great!

I hope this becomes a standard in all maps.  :D

Many THX for the MTOCR map, it works OK and missions can be saved with no prob' ...  ;)

Unfortunately, since the actors.static must be based on the stock one, we get European style houses and trees ...  :(

I tried using the more recent one with desert houses and trees, but of course we lose the curved roads in that case ...  :-X
