Uzin;
there aren't specific objects like your picture but I think there are enough objects that you can combine to create a decent looking refinery.
This took me about 10 minutes in FMB (BAT) combining various objects then Alt-drag to Select All/Copy/Paste to double it...

Thank you very much for your really inspiring picture, you are true artist, indeed.
Perhaps some distillation columns with stairs around them would be useful, nevertheless. See the post above - that by Flieger.

... maybe useful pics showing Ploesti oil refineries and oil fields in 1943 ...  ;)

If my memory serves me right, we do have oil rigs and other oil fields objects in the game ...  ;)

Simply google Leuna Plant, there are several US recon pictures of Leuna,
Buna and L├╝tzkendorf plants in the vicinity where I live.
Altogether a freakingly large industrial complex.

Was one of the most vital Targets in War.

Or take Ploiesti, it really doesn't matter, lot's of Pipes and not just brick Chimneys.
They had tubular narrow Chimneys with Flames burning.
Still active in 80s when I was a kid visiting Leuna.





These are pictures from the 40s an actual recon Pictures after Attack,
and the same Building rebuilt in 50s, the Brick structures are from pre wartime, re used.
They essentially had to rebuild everything but Bricks. The only thing the Russian
didn't took home.

We need more Pipes at raffineries.

If I'm not mistaken you could also raise one of the stationary fire objects to the top of one of the chimneys to represent one of the burn-off towers usually seen at refineries.

There are plenty of oil pipe objects in BAT so I'll play with this some more using the photos here and see if I can do a better job.  I'll note the object numbers so people can duplicate easily.

UPDATE: It looks like someone already did this...     
It looks like a combination of a chimney object with a radar tower object duplicates an oil rig tower.  Not bad at all.

Cool, exactly, I think it'll add lots of immersion.

I do not think there are any objects in Il-2 specifically designated as components of a refinery, most have always just used existing objects in
useful and interesting ways to populate missions and campaigns. ;)

Where do those objects you show in the image come from Ivan?

If they are available in certain file types and within polygon limits (we can overcome polygon issues using specific classfiles), it might be possible
to convert them for Il-2 instead of actually doing what players do now using the existing stuff in the FMB to create their refinery buildings. 8)


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hi, Pete,
the picture is from Oil Refinery Sketchup 3D Warehouse, can be displayed by Google.

NOTE:
There is another object missing in our beloved Il-2, namely, a "hammerlike" oil well, see pic below:



Correction: it is called "pumpjack", see here:

This took a bit longer and I used one of the Ploesti photos as a guide.  All objects available in BAT.

Hi, Pete,
the picture is from Oil Refinery Sketchup 3D Warehouse, can be displayed by Google.

Hello Ivan, the refinery can be downloaded as a Collada file, this can be opened in Blender:



Sorry to say I have no experience with Blender, usually though I am able to create a file that will
load in gmax, unfortunately not this time.

I was able to save one file that could be opened up in Meshconverter, however, taking it from there
I am not sure.


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D
