Original black and white reference images of Darwin, Pahrap Civil Drome and RAAF Station Darwin.

I obviously couldn't do the hills so much in such a small area.

Darwin in the thirties



You can see the sports oval in the photo so I made it into a cricket pitch/grounds

Darwin tanks and train tracks etc.



Doctor's Gully PBY cats moaring/maintenance area



Pahrap with military build up in Darwin. I noticed that with most references Pahrap, RAAF Station Darwin and Batchelor were always referenced as X double runways.

Pahrap Civil Drome military build up


RAAF Station Darwin in progress


You can easily see Neil's hangers are just like the ones in the photos including the water tank/control tower as well  ;D :D

Please add the castle gun to East Point Gun Battery in single/campaign missions. This addition and already provided will make East Point more realistic even though a shot was never fired in anger. There are supporting bunkers and observation bunkers along with an h.q there to support it  ;D

Cheers,
Kirby

 :)    ;D 
Thanks dear Farang I'm also downloading now ...    hey friend, from the screenshots you posted I seem to understand you have some problems with the video card .. the sea waves  seem to be in 2D ... completely missing the 3D effect and that foam! You should reinstall the game with Windows 2000 compatibility or something similar , Waves in 3D are fundamental to the realism of the scenes!
I understand you, I struggled for a long time to get 3D back after computer changes, but I'm sure you can fix it.... ;)

I have been using that old animation water mod in my standard modact 4.12
I may revert back to just water 4.
Water is a personal taste for everyone.  ;D

I know I need to update my Nividia card driver but don't want to switch to win 2000 cause my computer internals wont support it anymore.
I asked for XP Pro and no go so sad  ::(

Farang,

Well done.  I'm standing out by the seaplane base, down on the south bay.  Thank you so much.

Cheers and prost...

They were flying Catalinas out of there, for as long as they could.  I stayed behind, just to wander around your wonderful map of Ambon.

Again...cheers and well done...

Don't forget to walk down Lover's Lane the winding path very close to Doctor's Gully.

Cheers,

Yeah, I know.  The hospital was just back over my shoulder...out towards the hills, to the south.

Man, I'm getting old.  The hospital was almost due east of here, up on the rise...  I was facing the wrong direction.  Old cats tend to do that.

Excuse me for being thick guys, but where do i put the two folders included in the zip "MAPMODS" & "MODS", please.

I have BAT Exp12 installed and there is more than one location that includes the folder MAPMODS.

Thank you,
Mike.

I don't mod my BAT am not familiar with installing a mod at all with BAT.

I am sure someone will come around and help.  :D ;)

It was tested in BAT by Dennis and is perfect in BAT.  :) ;)
