An update on work... compare to the above pic and upper-corner map/plan.. ;)


Now I know what Ferdinand de Lesseps felt when digging out the Suez canal... the heat, the thirst and the flies notwithstanding; but
a whole lot of cold beers instead !!!

V2.34 is now up, with updated link Picture above also updated.

A small addition: expanded Jeep mission version.
Big addition: ...the photos and maps that were used...  historical context details...

Changes in the patch itself: The "Rovumbun" passage announced above is done; big Island of Laipari thus created;
the Biloa Anchorage Bay redesigned to match maps bit more; two small Islands added at the bay's mouth;
Mission, Plantation and their associated HQ's; plus the small up-coast village of Maravari.
Some more details up or down the coast; minor corrections.

Of course the PBY base (..been an issue..) and Vonunu's buildings (..more and more an issue..) were displaced.

New to this version map_c and map_c_table patch ( gray scale "water/surf/land" definitions ).
Please save your originals before patching..

WIP.  ::)

V2.35 is now up, with updated link.   Pictures above are also updated.

New Jeep mission versions; phony bridges effects ; better narrow road effects; imminent danger and traffic... 
Couple of new photos showing messy roads and vehicles, plus bridge construction...

Changes in the patch itself:
- Biloa Anchorage Bay further redesigned to match maps bit more;
- western seashore lake was added beyond Biloa bay. ( see in pic above );
- better define Islands that were previously looking like peninsulas; thus overall Vella Levella coast redesign to fit bit more
  accurately satellite imagery here and there;
- a hole lot of new small coastal communities of the 1943 era, all around Vella Lavella;
- authentic WWII names of locations in text; ( see comments in in the pack );
- correction to one of Barakoma's back road;
- Vonunu township now fully relocated and downsized towards north-eastern point of Laipari Island.
- Maravari village becomes official US/NZ main supply base (historical);
- Biloa's mission downgraded to the status of simple ruins (historical).
- Machine Gun Gully.
- did I mention Kimbolia Radar Station installations, uphill north-west of Munda Munda cove PT boat base ?
- WIP work on some rivers..
- well, been a long month since the last update !!!!


In this version, ( like in v2.34 previously ), there is more of  the map_c and map_c_table patch "changes"
( gray scale "water/surf/land/rivers" definitions ).
Please save your originals before patching..

WIP.   :)
