Bombsaway's LS_Marcus Map Retextured.
« on: June 27, 2012, 11:22:14 AM »

This is a retexture of the LS_Marcus map for DBW.

LoneStar67 gave us this cool map and its one of my pacific favorites. I was reading up on it and here is a quote from Wiki.....

"The United States Navy bombed it repeatedly in 1942 and in 1943 but never attempted to capture it."

With that I thought of what it "may" have looked like in late 43 early 44.New grass is starting grow, bombcraters are still visable and some green is starting to come back after the fires of the bombs burnt or browned everything. Really there are only a few textures for this map. The land,runway and shallows. Two I made. The shallows, the crushed coral runway and the third with the bomb crators I did not make but adjusted with a photo program.
I dont know who made it originaly but I want to give him credit for it.


Credit to LoneStar67 for his cool map.

Credit to the person who made the vere2_craters texture which I edited a bit.

Credit to UP~Boomer for his bombcraters that were added to the verde teture.

This retexture is just for fun. It was pointed out that with the "bombing" the palm trees would be
less and damaged but I just did the retexture. If someone wants to help out and remove some of the
palms and add broken ones that would be great.

Install= You must download and install the Variable tempature mod from

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20264.0.html

Go inside its maps folder and place a - in front of the LS_Marcus folder and any other maps you
will want to change textures on in the future.

Then place the LS_Marcus folder in your maps folder. Place the BA_LS_Marcus folder in your _tex folder and thats it.

I also inculded  a different coral runway texture. If you want to change it go into the LS_Marcus folder and open the load.ini, scroll to the bottom where you will see this...

Water3   = BA_LS_Marcus/BA_CrushedCoral_E.tga,4

Change the E to C and save.

I hope you enjoy it

I'm glad you guys like it. The texture with the craters I did not make. I just edited the color to make it match the coral. I wish I knew the maker so I could give them credit by name.

After looking, it was in Agracier's Chaco folder in my old 4.09 folder. I'm not sure if he made it or did as me and edited it from someone else. I pm'ed him the other day and he said he is out of town but when he gets back I'll ask him.

Ok cool, I'll add you to the credits. If some are from Bee hopefully he will read this and let me know so I can give him proper credit as well.
