feel free to make your own improvements and share them with us. ;)
WC is finished with this map, and i doubt he will be re-doing it.

You are not talking about improvements here CW, you are asking him to do the map all over again. And you are telling him a big pacific island is a better option.
And the light what do you expect him to do about that.
This game has its limitations, and you might think you got a better idea of things. what exactly do you want the author to do, and do you think the majority would agree on what you suggest? Shall we make the game render light in a better away, or in the way you like it.
You are really not helping here, you are very subjective with this critique of yours. You may or  may not have the majority with you in your opinion, but your request for improvement is basically saying to the author , can you please work for a week or two or tree and redo this map for me

I didn't ask for a remake of the map Leone, I'm just saying what things that could been improved. Nothing else. If some of the improvements I've listed above require a complete re make of the map, then forget it of course.

As I said above, I'm not a map maker, so I don't know.

I'm just giving my opinion about this map.

Regards,

C.W.

well, let's all just leave our opinions out of it, and rather focus on constructive criticism.
your points, CW, are in essence, asking for a major rework of the map, which is highly unlikely, unless perhaps you decide to learn some map-making skills and do it yourself.
it's really not that hard, just takes a little effort from your side.
like you, i knew nothing about maps, but decided to follow the available info, and managed to do some decent re-textures, for starters.
the only skill required for that is text editing, and a bit of reading up on the process.
let's rather have some more input form members,  as no modder should be expected to cater to each individual's opinion.

Playing with this map constantly, hope to upload a final version of my for fun mod today, first to WHiteCat..























If I upload it there will be 3 version options for forest (normal IL-2, random trees as forest and mixxed-thanks to CY6) and water-flooded with bigs vs default no water/rice field effects.

I like very much the landscape of Vietnam :-*.

Here is the mod, readme included.

This includes all possible options and backups. You can go back to default forest and water if you wish. The default water flood Vietnam mod was very painfully redesigned to not pork airbases on the coasts and still have water holes around bases as well and look like humid time is there.

If you experience FPS drops there is a trick I can provide in case someone this issue:

If you have lower FPS and still want to keep the whc forest version instead the backup provided default forest version:

Open the load.ini:
Change..


Water1   = whc/land/pacific/VietnamTrees3_fields.tga

to

Water1   = whc/land/pacific/VietnamTrees1_fields.tga


I provided 3 different possible tree carrying textures along their tree.tga extra greyscale tex.


Screens...









































Have fun chaps

This looks REALLY good Tom!

I'm loving it! Some of your pictures capture the Vietnam type of landscape.
I hope the team will include these variations in C.U.P soon.
Keep it up, I love what you do!

Cheers  ;)
