It depends...

The 1st link is the full mod.
The 2nd link is a light version of his mod, in case you experience screen freezes, or other troubles...

I tried the fix altered by vpmedia and it worked in the 1968 map version. Better IMHO, much reduced pop-up trees.
Thanks!

Hello all, I've just made some long overdue changes to the rivers at the bottom of the map to elimainate the ugly tiling effect that results from there position on the map.

The link to the fix is in the first post and is set up for DBW users to just paste the IL-2 Sturmovik folder into their install.  For other mod set ups you will have to re-name the DBW folder to whatever you use.  There are folders for each of the South Vietnam maps done so far.

The areas of river shadowed in red are what has been removed.



The textures beyond the remaining river are now wood effect.




Unfortunately I haven't been able to find what causes this effect on the coast so it remains.



The rivers still remain on the ed maps though.

I personally think this improves the look of that part of the map, if you set weather to poor in
QMB it also helps mask the remaining eyesore that I can't remove.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Good to see your keeping this map going Pete. I remember when you started her back in the old AAA days. Some members about had a cow over putting Vietnam stuff in IL2. :) I'm glad those days are over. Keep on keeping on Pete. Great map and thank you. :)

Hello Mark, it seems we never quite leave them alone eh, this particular part of the river system was long overdue for alteration but it took working on another map to remind me it needed doing. ;)

I keep meaning to have a look at the colonial map of the North that Agracier and I think CzechTexan made, could do with Lang Son adding to it, would give me the chance to update my old Vietnam Vichy campaign.

Bye the way did you sort out you're problem with your map_c problem, I sent some images that I thought may help.

Hello Gianluca glad the map is still up there with your favourites, hopefully this small change will allow you to enjoy it a little more. :)

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

No, I think I'm map_c illiterate. :) I did get it to open but the areas that I want to get rid of were not showing. Only the reef areas. I want to get rid of almost the entire middle of the shallows that the map has because in real life its not there.

MB, unless I've misunderstood part of the dialogue, the repeat tiling effect is simply the tiling effect as you fly off the edge of the map. The game repeats the last several pixels at the edge ad infinitum. You don't notice it if it's land quite so much.

Hello Mark, send me your map_c and an image of what you want removing, I'll have a look for you. ;)

Hello Mandrill, yes the effect is as you say, with the rivers my removing the ones I did sorted out the particular problem they caused as the effect only starts so far from the edge of the map, however, there doesn't appear to be anything I can do with the bit on the coast.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Wow, thank you Pete, that reminds me to test this map again-a great map and one of the few post war maps..especially in its 68 version.

Hello Pete

My first post here, after many hours of reading post..... :)

Many tanks for this map, it's very nice.
In readme file you say "The map uses objects by Cannon and Fabianfred along with KevinP's roads so you need to have those installed."

Any link for this? I tried to find it, but unsuccessfully...

Many tanks again to you and to all modder here  ;D
