The airfields still have problems with the stay points for where to park and also objects are too close to the taxi routes.

agracier, I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of changing the actors file to fix them.  Last night I did a few hours worth of correcting and testing the airfields so that not just fighters but bombers will be able to use these nice looking fields.

Trobiand af now has both runways working with good taxi routes and stays.  This is where I had to move most of the objects that were too close to the routes...but just a short distance.
However, with its setup of two runways, it's best for each runway to only have one end to takeoff and land.

It was also necessary to delete the "woods"/forest in the path of each runway.  Heavy planes were crashing into the trees.  So, map_T was slightly changed...just replaced the woods texture with Lowland0.

Today I'm still testing and correcting.  Still having some problems with Japanese bombers landing and taxi routes.  US bombers have longer landing distances so they work OK.

The Seaplane taxi and stay points were also a problem.  I moved them farther away from the shoreline so that they will park.

agracier, I can zip the actors and Map_T and email it to you if you'd like to have the fixes.  Just say the word.  :-X

Of course ... please do. As I've said before, airfields are a bit of unknown territory for me. I hardly know all the fine points at all ... so please send and I'll incorporate into a new download link ... or post it here on this thread yourself if you like ... either way is fine by me. I much appreciate the help ...

Raptor HSFX doesnt have many Objects, so you need to Search and download a good Bank of Objects to Run some maps. Use the Universal Static ini checker to see what objects your missing, and also you can check your Console Log for errors.

The corrected airfields waypoints have been emailed to agracier so we should see the update soon.

Trobiand Island
North runway...Can now park 9 medium bombers, or 5 Large bombers (B-17), or 20 fighters.
South Runway...Can now park 24 fighters.  It should be used for only fighters.

Woodlark Island
airfield can now park 6 medium bombers, or 6 Large bombers, or 18 fighters.

*If you use more than those amounts or have stationary planes or objects in their path or parking places then the A/I planes will disappear after landing!
If you have stationary planes under camo netting or in hangars then you should be OK.  Be sure to leave all taxi routes clear.

I'm quite sure that with Boomer's Object Pack, you'll have all the necessary objects once the pack is installed in your game version:

The corrected airfields waypoints have been emailed to agracier so we should see the update soon.

Here we are guys. 2 corrected files, one actors and one map_t.tga. Download, unzip and copy into the map folder ag_Woodlark_Island ... overwrite the older files. There are two links to choose from, both will give you the same file.

Thanks again to Czech_Texan for all his help. His airfield expertise is really appreciated.

Now this is one great screenshot. Do you by any chance remember the settings and time of day? I've never been able to get a landscape like this ... looks really nice.
