Palau repainted by Whitecat v.1.0
« on: December 02, 2010, 12:21:10 PM »

Hi, another one, it's almost Christmas  :P

My Palau is an experiment; most of the repaints or mods of the Pacific around (including mine) despise the stock Pacific trees, using instead Italy trees or variations of them. No wonder because the stock Jungle trees give a noticeable ugly effect, especially in flat or extensive forest areas. The downside is that Italy trees (and the textures you have to add to match with them) usually give an 'european', desaturated, gray air to the Pacific islands which has nothing to do with the reality. And it's a pity because the stock Jungle trees are more luminous, colorful and include palm trees.

Palau map_T is different because there aren't big forest areas and the existent ones are mountainous, both good things to avoid ugly effects with trees. So I decided to go 'luminous' with this one and focused in creating high definition jungle textures to match with them and give a good experience flying low.

Have fun!!

Palau retextured by Whitecat 1.0

Credits:

- Oleg & team of course
- All the textures are mine or stock ones (or variations of them) EDIT: I use so often handy's textures that I've forgotten to include him :)

Instructions to install:

- Delete previous folders of 00_whc_Retextured_Palau
- Copy the folder 00_whc_Retextured_Palau_v.1.0 into MODS folder.
- Add the lines in add_to_all_ini.txt to your MODS/Mapmods/maps/all.ini

If you want to use the missions you have already in these maps you have to change the 2nd line
of each .mis file from:

MAP Palau/load.ini

to:

MAP Palau/whc_load.ini

(The same for the Online ones, add whc before the .ini name)

EDIT: The screenshots are from this excellent campaign (objects not included in the map) (LOL this sounds like a toys ad :D )

P51? I thought only the marines were at Palau 8)

Seriously, Palau makes me so sad, one of those operations in which many brave marines lost their lives for nothing, as the base wasn't used by the USAAF later. They could have very well left the island alone to the end of the war.

Cheers!

why have MAB near the runway?   If one wanted to play this as the invasion of the island it would not make much sense..

Otherwise looks great.  I like that people are putting a little darker color green into the pacific jungles.

Good point, but that is only part of a mission, not part of the map :) I'll edit the post to clear that.
