FABULOUS! Simply Fantastic looking new retexturing !
THANK YOU So much good friend! *Big Applause*  8)
I have been flying all over the place and checking out the cool artsy things you did. Looks and feels exciting.
I also like the new jungle trees. Groovy looking trees!

I notice that the road texture I sent you, does not blend too well with the ground dirt you have chosen for this
map . Seems a little out of place in this Vietnam. Perhaps it should be on an European forest map somewhere else.
I will make some changes to the dirt coloring and try to blend in the proper color into it, so that this road can be
more part of the overall landscape of your Vietnam map. That way , you can still have that look of almost "invisibility"
to the roads you wanted (or you could say, more blending of the textures),
but we can also notice it when flying over them.

Just ran some of the QMB missions I made for this using your repaint, have to say it looks outstanding, superb job you did there Alex. 8)

I did not last long as the USN hit Cahm Rahn Bay. :'(



The Avengers caused havoc, everything was sunk.



Getting home was an ordeal for anyone in the circuit.



Glad to see it finally got a paint job that does it proud, makes all the hard work that was put in to it by everyone worth all that effort . ;)

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Awesome!
Thanks WhiteCat, love the repaint!

Hope one day Uufflakke returns and adds even more magic to Southeast asia..he once started with a technique to make wet rice paddies, that was something I had never seen in any sim before.
Since a kid I always loved the sections where water mixes up with land or "transition" areas in nature. ;)
 :)

BTW I tried a few nights in FMB+ to add a 2 coloured water in this map as a test in general and I have to say this is very tricky.
I recall it required a big deal of map_c and map_t fiddling and a proper shallows texture...but so far no one has made it and I am no exception lol. :-[
So IMHO the default water used in this map by all modders is the best compromise.
Boy, time to hit it...the heat over here makes my skull vapor. ;)

Pete, many thanks! I'm glad you like it, because repainting sometimes it's a matter of personal taste and I did it the way I like it but it's cool to see I'm not alone! It's a good map, hope more mission builders go for it. So far only Cracken and Istvan, and Istvan ones I can't load because I had a bit of a mess with my mods now :)

Thorsten, thanks a lot man! Yes, Uufflakke is legend. I remember he was a pioneer and an artist. First really cool autopop trees I saw came from him. There were true legend things like the sandstorm he once did. Not to talk about the marvellous population of cities. No idea about the paddies, wow that would be AMAZING. You're right about the balance of water, I thought also about that. We could potentially do a 'interior only' Vietnam map without coast, and then unleash the muddy rivers, like Ramone in Burma repaint :)

Thanks Kirby!! Your opinion counts for me a lot, living where you live ;)  bear in mind I follow my intuition and pictures, I haven't been in Asia ever! And always between the boundaries of IL2 graphics engine but trying to be 'water' with it, making the engine work for me and not the opposite :)

It's a pleasure to share as always! Please don't hesitate in reuse the textures or the autopop trees for other maps of course!!

Ok guys :) I think that, as soon as I get installed in my new job and apartment (give me a month or so), I'll start to work on a second version with 2048 textures, and I think, I'll try to develop Uufflakke's idea about real water rice paddies. I'll need to learn map_c for that, but I think it's worth it. Only thing, I hope my PC can cope with it, it struggles already a bit :P

 :(Hello
When clicking on the Mediafire link I get the following error message :

Do I have to wait or anyone could post another valid link ?

Thanks

Hi Ansons I'm traveling and no access to the file but maybe somebody can upload it again and I'll modify initial post?
