  1. Rio de la Plata terrain

    Rio de la Plata terrain
    *****************************************************
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2E or SF2I.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I. Short description:
    This terrain covers the Bay of the river Rio de la Plata. South of this bay we find Argentina, north of it Urugay and Brazil. East of it is the Atlantic Ocean.
    The timeframe of the terrain is from 1980 to 2020.
    It is made as a NavalMap with carrier vs carrier operations in mind.
    The scenario is, that in 1982, the Royal Navy answered the argentinian invasion on the Falkland islands with sending a Naval Task Force toward Buenos Aires and landing troops on the shores of Argentina.
    Thatswhy you find a big british beachhead on the map.
    You can fly following missions for the British and their allies, the Brazilians:
    SWEEP,CAP,ESCORT,INTERCEPT,STRIKE,SEAD,ANTI_SHIP,RECON,CAS,Armed_Recon
    For the Argentinians you can fly this missions:
    SWEEP,CAP,ESCORT,INTERCEPT,STRIKE,SEAD,ANTI_SHIP,CAS,RECON

  2. Southern Ukraine and Crimean Peninsula Terrain

    Donbass Beta 0.40
    *****************************************************
    Southern Ukraine and Crimean Peninsula Terrain

    THIS IS STILL  A BETA VERSION!!!!
    ============================
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    This terrain is written for SF2E. It works well with SF2NA.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I. Short description:
    The south and the east of the Ukraine are battlegrounds in mid 2022. At the moment nobody knows how the war will end.
    This terrain covers the most parts of the Ukraine and some parts of the Russian Federation. But only the southern war theater and the crimean peninsula are included in this terrain so far. Airfields and some other target areas are placed on the map. Further improvements will come.
    I made the airfields in their shape as realistic as possible. Only 3 airfields are more or less freestyle.
    At the moment the terrain is made for scenarios around the Crimean peninsula. Offensive operations are more focused for the ukrainian side. In ukrainian strike missions you can fly against airfields, factories, depots, Sewastopol harbour and support facilities and a dense SAM network.
    For the russian side you can only fly against enemy airfields.
    At the moment possible mission types are:  Sweep, CAP, Escort, Intercept, Recon, Strike and SEAD missions.
    The terrain is set as NavalMap=FALSE, but it is prepared for NavalMap=TRUE. If you use SF2NA as basic game you may change the setting, so that carrier vs carrier operations will be possible.
     
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    II. INSTALLATION:
    To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic or SF2 Israel or SF2 Europe.

    Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2XXXX

  3. Italy, Southern Europe (1993-2006)

    Italy, Southern Europe (1993-2006) Terrain
    September 13th, 2022 (1st Release)
    by Menrva and tiopilotos

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    I am very proud to release a long awaited, brand new terrain made from scratch! The result of many years of dedication and sweat starting in 2017, it features thousands of manually placed tiles reproducing Real World river courses and lakes, not to mention tons of cities all accurately placed in their correct locations. This terrain portrays a pretty complex area, no wonder it never got made properly in two decades of Strike Fighters modding. It is my hope you realize the amount of time and hard effort that I have put to reproduce it with much care and detail.
    The terrain completely covers Italy (with the exception of Sicily, which is included in my Libya terrain), Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, Corsica (France), Liechtenstein and nice portions of Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Macedonia, Greece and even a bit of Romania. The tileset, based on one of Stary's GermanyCE tilesets, has been recoloured and expanded with needed transition tiles and features beautiful, unique tiles by tiopilotos which reproduce real islands. Expect long and very accurate river courses, all major and some minor lakes, and tons of islands in the Adriatic Sea. Numerous target areas have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range; those include more than 140 airports, more than 100 SAM sites and more than 70 EW-GCI sites, all placed accurately in their correct locations as shown by well-made SAM site datasets for Google Earth.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from April 12, 1993 (the beginning of Operation Deny Flight) to June 2, 2006 (the day before Montenegro declared its independence). This terrain is adapt for the Yugoslav Wars and for what-if scenarios pitting Serbia against NATO. For gameplay purposes, Bosnia is set to Red Side alongside Serbia and Montenegro. Slovenia, Croatia and Macedonia are set to Blue Side. Airfields in Austria, Switzerland and Romania have been set to Neutral, so the AI and the player will never spawn on those by default.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible. Having SF2NA is a must, as I have enabled naval ops; if your mod folder contains American, French and Italian aircraft carriers, sometimes you'll see fleets being generated in single missions.
    NOTE: The terrain is not fully finished. It currently misses targets for cities, such as bridges, warehouses, factories etc. If time will allow, maybe someday it will be completed properly.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -tiopilotos, for working on very well done island tiles which offer more unique sights in the Adriatic Sea.
    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
    -JSF_Aggie, for his Hi-Res Runway Textures package which I have included and slightly reworked.
    -Coupi, for his Soviet style repaint of the stock Runway3 airfield.
    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -Stary, for an old version of his GermanyCE tileset included in the Anatolia v1 terrain by PureBlue.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.

    >Trivia:
    Some statistics of the amount of work that went into it, gathered thanks to gerwin's TFDtool. I placed manually one by one: more than 8600 rivers tiles, more than 1100 road tiles, more than 2000 city related tiles! This is just the tip of the iceberg, not counting other thousands of tiles that have been placed manually on the tilemap to better reproduce coastlines, islands and lakes, and not counting the endless hours of research since 2017 into adding all possible airports with much accuracy.

  5. NovaLogic Terrains

    NovaLogic Terrains
    July 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
    by Menrva and gerwin

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This package was born after the discovery of similarities between the terrain engine of Strike Fighters and that of NovaLogic's flight sims from the late nineties. Upon my initial idea, gerwin helped make it true with his incredible programming skills; without him, these terrains wouldn't even exist for use on Strike Fighters. This package features not one, not two, but all thirteen terrains converted from all NovaLogic's flight sims. Due to differences between game engines, these terrains are smaller in scale in Strike Fighters compared to how they are in NovaLogic's games. Here below a summary of what's included:
    NL01_IslandGreen (Region: Meadow) from F-22 Lightning II
    NL02_IslandSnowy (Region: Tundra) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor
    NL03_Desert1 (Region: Arid) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor
    NL04_Jungle1 (Region: Forest) from F-22 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor
    NL04_Jungle2 (Region: Jungle) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum
    NL05_Savannah1 (Region: Woodland) from F-22 Raptor
    NL05_Savannah2 (Region: Savanna) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3
    NL06_Desert2A (Region: Brush) from F-22 Raptor
    NL06_Desert2B (Region: Desert) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum
    NL07_Steppe (Region: Steppe) from F-16 Multirole Fighter and MiG-29 Fulcrum
    NL08_Scrub (Region: Scrub) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3
    NL09_Glacial (Region: Glacial) from F-16 Multirole Fighter, MiG-29 Fulcrum and F-22 Lightning 3
    NL10_IslandJungle (Region: Tropical) from F-22 Lightning 3
    These terrains feature 500m resolution heightmaps and original low-res tilesets (tweaked for the Strike Fighters engine). Each terrain is meant to represent a generic region of the world. Nations are properly limited to ones coherent with each setting, and island terrains enable the use of naval fleets and aircraft carriers. As such, these terrains are meant to be used in a full-5 merged mod folder of all SF2 titles. At this stage very few target areas have been added to each terrain, providing basic support for all mission types, so just enjoy quick missions against the enemy; hopefully these terrains will be completed with more details one day.
    About development, gerwin took care of reverse engineering NovaLogic's files and converting them to SF2 format, plus writing the tools for that. Me and him manually fixed most water alpha channels and adjusted colors in few tiles. Design choices such as target areas, routes, terrain height and surroundings, are mine; if you have any suggestions about this package, contact me.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -gerwin, for converting these terrains to the Strike Fighters game engine and for expanding his awesome tools with new features. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -Wrench, for permission to upload this package which is based on outdated assets from old games.

  6. Outer Space Terrains

    Outer Space Terrains
    July 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
    by Menrva and nuni

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This package was born out of fun while working on the realSKY Environment enhancement mod. It features two experimental terrains, Moon and Mars, each with own environment data files which allow different gravity acceleration values and custom skies. Due to various hardcoded factors of the stock game, the Moon terrain shows contrail effects at very high altitude like any other terrain, as well as overcast/inclement weather layers which cannot be disabled in any way; enjoy these custom environments by taking such and other game engine limitations into account. It is suggested to install the realSKY Environment mod, since the custom environment data references extra details from that package.
    Both terrains feature fresh new 250m resolution heightmaps (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall they provide each terrain with a better look. Given that these are extraterrestrial terrains, different types of source data had to be used in their creation; for this and other limitations, altitudes of geographical features are inaccurate.
    The Moon terrain spans from 2040 to 2070, while Mars is available from 2060 to 2090; both are designed for fictional clashes between Red forces (Russian Space Forces and People's Liberation Army Strategic Support Force) and Blue forces (United States Space Force and French Space Force). Both terrains contain only two bases, one for Friendly forces and one for Enemy forces, fully populated with custom objects created by nuni. Few target areas have been added so that users can easily discover features such as craters, plateaus and valleys. At this stage, only the Recon mission type is available, so just have fun by flying over these barren terrains. Off Map bases have been added to both terrains and long range AI flights could be generated from them.
    An Orion MPCV created by nuni in three different variants has been added as a flyable aircraft as well as a terrain object in points of interest. In addition, custom skins have been created for it so that all AI-only space forces spawn with at least one terrain-specific aircraft; I would have liked to include other feasible and realistic spacecraft, but none are available at this stage. If you wish to contribute to this end, just contact me. The idea is to create plausible space warfare and exploration scenarios, so alien and sci-fi stuff should not be involved. Of course, you're free to alter the original scenario for your own personal use.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -nuni, for creating the Orion MPCV and all featured space terrain objects.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.

  7. Socotra terrain

    Socotra 1.0
    *****************************************************
    This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2 Israel.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I. Short description:
    Socotra is a relativly big island on the shores of the Horn of Africa. It belongs to Yemen.
    Socotra is an ideal position to control all shipping lines between the Mediterranian Sea and the Indian Ocean.
    The power who controls Socotra can easily block the oil support from the Gulf to Western Europe.
    Socotra is the cork in the bottle neck, like Djibouti, the Suez Canal or Gibraltar.
    From mid 1960th to the fall of the Soviet Union, the soviets had an airbase on Socotra. In the 1980th on the base one regiment (squadron) of Su-24 bombers was active on Socotra.
    This terrain is made for a scenario that the Americans must defeat the soviet forces on Socotra island. They had to operate from carrier positions in the Gulf of Aden. For all guys who love to fly Air Force planes i made a temporary american airfield in Somalia.
    In the timeframe, where the soviets have no own carriers the single missions are focused on Socotra island. When the soviets field carriers the terrain is mostly focused on carrier vs carrier battles. So, if you prefer carrier vs ground battles you must choose missions before 1976. After that date you will have to fight Kiev carrier battle groups.

  8. Ethiopia, African Horn (1993-2028)

    Ethiopia, African Horn (1993-2028) Terrain
    December 13th, 2021 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    I am proud to present a brand new terrain made from scratch! Initially proposed in private by tiopilotos, I later decided to create it in order to offer an accurate playground for different conflicts never recreated in Strike Fighters.
    The terrain completely covers Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti, and a great portion of Somalia and Yemen. The tileset, based on JSF_Aggie's Desert repaint and Centurion-1's Desert 4 add-on, has been greatly expanded with necessary transition tiles. Expect long and very accurate river courses and all major lakes, the reddish deserts of the Horn of Africa and the green highlands of Ethiopia. Numerous target areas, such as civilian airports and airstrips, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from April 27, 1993 (the day Eritrea declared independence from Ethiopia) to December 31, 2028. This terrain is adapt for historical scenarios such as the Eritrean–Ethiopian War and for territorial disputes between Eritrea, Yemen and Djibouti. Somaliland is still considered as Somalia since Somaliland is not officially recognized, though you can spot the Somaliland flag over some of its cities.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields will appear at a given date, cities change their name at a specific year and so on, all according to Real World changes. Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them. Having SF2NA is a must, as I have enabled naval ops; if your mod folder contains American, British and French aircraft carriers, sometimes you'll see fleets being generated in single missions.
    Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain the most needed ones from Wrench's old Eritrea/Ethiopia terrain release.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Wrench, for working on Wingwiner's original Eritrea terrain, producing new target area layouts.
    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -JSF_Aggie, for his great Hi-Res Runway Textures v2.0 which I included, and for the hi-res desert tileset.
    -Centurion-1, for expanding JSF_Aggie's tileset with more variety for the Desert4 terrain by Piecemeal.
    -tiopilotos, for his continuous support in all my terrain modding efforts. Thank you very much!
    -Stary, for old .TOD files which add trees and buildings on some tiles of this terrain.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    Although scratch-made, the terrain makes use of most objects and target layouts from Wrench's Eritrea terrain; because of this, I included the ReadMe file from that package, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

    >Disclaimer:
    This is a freeware; yet it can be redistributed ONLY in other CombatACE mods/mod packages.

  10. Hawaii, Central Pacific (1959-2028)

    Hawaii, Central Pacific (1959-2028) Terrain
    December 13th, 2020 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Vietnam, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the Hawaii terrain. Unlike the original one released by Wrench, which is not in full Real World scale, this new terrain was made and tiled from scratch, and it features all the main Hawaiian islands in full scale, with more cities and pretty accurate elevation details.
    A better looking and more complete tileset has been added. Numerous target areas, such as small civilian airports, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from August 21, 1959 (when Hawaii officially became the 50th American State) to December 31, 2028; it is designed for fictional clashes between Red forces (namely Russia and China) and all of the American services (USAF, USN and USMC). The island of Kauai is added to Red Side for better gameplay; imagine it as the first step of a hostile invasion of Hawaii. All mission types are available, including CAS and Armed Recon.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. If you have SF2NA, naval fleets will spawn in the Pacific Ocean. Also, Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations.
    Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain the most needed from Wrench's original Hawaii terrain release.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Wrench, for his permission to use his target areas from the original, smaller scale Hawaii terrain.
    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs, and for allowing me to include his exclusive Pearl Harbor Memorial 3d model (which you cannot redistribute).
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -JSF_Aggie, for his great Hi-Res Runway Textures v2.0 which I included.
    -Stary, for the hi-res Okinawa tileset he made, which I have reworked and expanded.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    Because this terrain re-uses some of the original target area layouts by Wrench from his previously released Hawaii terrain, I included the ReadMe files from his original package, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

    Timor, North Oceania (1950-2018) Terrain
    August 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Vietnam, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the Modern Darwin terrain made by Wrench.
    A better and more complete tileset has been added, improving the looks of Northern Australia with the introduction of desert and barren valleys. Various rivers and lakes have been hand-tiled and mimic Real World courses. Now the island of Timor has a lot of bases to take-off from. Numerous target areas, such as emergency airstrips and civilian airports, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from August 17, 1950 (when President Sukarno proclaimed a single unitary Republic of Indonesia) to December 31, 2018; it is designed for fictional clashes between ANZUS/SEATO forces (namely Australia and New Zealand) and a random pool of Red Side countries (namely Indonesia and China).
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. If you have SF2NA, naval fleets might spawn in the Timor Sea. Also, Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations.
    Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain the most needed from Wrench's original Modern Darwin terrain release.

  12. Ecuador, Northwest South America (1981-1998)

    Ecuador, Northwest South America (1981-1998) Terrain
    August 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva, tiopilotos and Stratos

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    I am proud to present a new scratch-made terrain, the result of a joint effort of modders! Initially conceived by Centurion-1, the terrain was later salvaged by Stratos, who offered to help in its development together with tiopilotos. Stratos helped by hand-tiling most if not all the incredibly long rivers in the Amazon rainforest. The terrain later received an impressive tileset produced by tiopilotos! You guys have my deepest gratitude!
    The terrain completely covers Ecuador, a great portion of Peru, and even touches Colombia and Brasil. However, only Peru and Ecuador have been targetized at this stage. Numerous target areas, such as civilian airports and airstrips, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from January 28, 1981 (the beginning of the Paquisha Incident) to October 26, 1998 (when a resolution of the Ecuadorian-Peruvian territorial dispute was agreed upon through the Brasilia Presidential Act); it is designed for the Paquisha War of 1981 and the Cenepa War of 1995. Most air-to-ground missions (armed recon, close air support, etc.) take place at the border between Peru and Ecuador, to provide an even more realistic scenario. As in reality, there are few SAM sites placed at their precise Real World locations.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some border outposts will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them, if you have SF2NA.
    Ground Objects are not included. It's up to the user to find and obtain anything that can be useful for the proposed terrain's scenarios.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Centurion-1, for his interest in recreating such scenario in the Strike Fighters world. I heard RL got in your way, so... best of luck, mate!
    -tiopilotos, for the massive tileset he produced, and for his continuous support in all my terrain modding efforts. Thank you very much!
    -Stratos, for he brought to attention Centurion-1's unfinished terrain and offered to help realize it.
    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.

    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -MigBuster, I have included some of his great hi-res textures for runways.
    -Stary, for the various hi-res tilesets and TODs he made, which have been re-used in this tileset.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    Although scratch-made, the terrain makes use of most objects and target layouts from Wrench's Panama terrain; because of this, I included the ReadMe file from that package, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

  13. Texas, American South Central (1968-2018)

    Texas, American South Central (1968-2018) Terrain
    August 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a new, scratch-made terrain inspired by the original, smaller ASW terrain made by krfrge and reworked by Wrench.
    The terrain covers to a good extent the American State of Texas, as well as some Mexican States. Major rivers and a number of lakes have been hand-tiled and mimic Real World courses. Numerous target areas, such as civilian airports and onshore and offshore oil fields, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from October 3, 1968 to December 31, 2018; it is designed for a fictional scenario where Mexico is invaded by an alliance of Central American countries (namely Cuba, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala) supported by the Russians; the remnant of the Mexican military flees to the U.S. and fights alongside North American forces. However, users are encouraged to recreate whatever scenario they like, even outside the given time frame.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields and Mexican oil platforms will appear only after a certain year, according to historic changes. If you have SF2NA, American naval fleets can spawn in the Gulf of Mexico. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations.
    Ground Objects are not included. It's up to the user to find and obtain anything that can be useful for the proposed terrain's scenarios.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -krfrge, for creating the ASW terrain from which I drew inspiration; he also produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!

    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -MigBuster, I have included some of his great hi-res textures for runways.
    -Stary, for the hi-res tileset he made for the original ASW terrain.
    -Polak, for a few tiles I borrowed and reworked from his old PRDesert2 tileset.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!

  14. Sweden, Baltic Rim (2004-2018)

    Sweden, Baltic Rim (2004-2018) Terrain
    March 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Europe, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the Sweden terrain made by gillg, but set after the Cold War era.
    What began as a simple tiling bugfix, for JonathanRL's The Scandinavian Front mod, turned out to be a huge overhaul upon noticing a number of inaccuracies. The terrain has been retargetized and hand-tiled to a good extent; major changes have been done to the Baltic states, which were pretty inaccurate in terms of target locations. Some rivers have been added and/or retiled to mimic Real World courses. Numerous target areas, including airports and highway strips, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from March 30, 2004 (the beginning of NATO's Baltic Air Policing) to December 31, 2018; it is designed for The Scandinavian Front's scenarios by JonathanRL, taking place after the Cold War era.
    This terrain is a standalone version of the one which will be included in the last iteration of the TSF mod package by JonathanRL. The terrain that will be included in the TSF mod package will likely differ slightly from this one, so users are advised to keep that in mind. Also, this terrain uses only a single tileset. The TSF's version will use different tilesets according to the season, as originally designed by our fellow modder, Stary.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields won't be available after a certain date and/or will change name according to historic changes. Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them, if you have SF2NA. Most of the main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations. Due to the complexity of the area, some inaccuracies are to be expected, but I did my best!
    Ground Objects are not included. Download JonathanRL's The Scandinavian Front mod package to have all that you need for this scenario.

  15. Sweden, Baltic Rim (1952-1994)

    Sweden, Baltic Rim (1952-1994) Terrain
    March 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Europe, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the Sweden terrain made by gillg.
    What began as a simple tiling bugfix, for JonathanRL's The Scandinavian Front mod, turned out to be a huge overhaul upon noticing a number of inaccuracies. The terrain has been retargetized and hand-tiled to a good extent; major changes have been done to the Baltic states, which were pretty inaccurate in terms of target locations. Some rivers have been added and/or retiled to mimic Real World courses. Numerous target areas, including airports and highway strips, have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from June 13, 1952 (the beginning of the Catalina Affair) to September 1, 1994 (the main withdrawal of Russian forces from the Baltic states); it is designed for The Scandinavian Front's scenarios by JonathanRL, taking place in the Cold War era.

  16. Libya, Central Mediterranean (1980-2011)

    Libya, Central Mediterranean (1980-2011) Terrain
    February 13th, 2018 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the Libya terrain made by Dave and further tweaked by Wrench during the years.
    The entire terrain has been retargetized and hand-tiled to a great extent using a different, more complete tileset; Sicily, Greece and Tunisia no longer are barren, deserted lands as seen in the original. Major rivers have been added and mimic Real World courses as accurately as possible. Numerous target areas have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from June 28, 1980 to October 31, 2011 (the official end of NATO's Operation Unified Protector); it is designed for Operation El Dorado Canyon, the Gulf of Sidra incidents of 1981 and 1989, Operation Odyssey Dawn and the subsequent Operation Unified Protector. Also, a specific Red Side target has been added inside Tunisia (Blue Side) territory, meant for Operation Wooden Leg.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, some airfields won't be available after a certain date and/or will change name according to historic changes. Off Map Airbases have been added and long range AI flights can be generated from them, if you have SF2NA. All main targets have been placed accurately in their Real World locations. Expect to see temples at historic sites!
    Ground Objects are not included. It's up to the user to find and obtain anything that can be useful for the proposed terrain's scenarios.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Dave, who had the idea of recreating such an important scenario in the Strike Fighters world.
    -Wrench, who kindly allowed me to improve upon his work by giving me a blank cheque and trusting my capabilities. Thank you, sir!
    -swambast, who provided me with invaluable help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.

    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    Because the original terrain was born from Dave and was tweaked numerous times by Wrench, I included the ReadMe files from the original packages, to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

  17. Madagascar, Southeast Africa (1977-2018)

    Madagascar, Southeast Africa (1977-2018) Terrain
    December 13th, 2017 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Europe, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the AE terrain made by Deuces and Dave, further tweaked by Wrench.
    The entire map has been retargetized and extensively retiled; Mozambique is now a lush green jungle, not a barren desert as seen in the original. The Comoros and Mayotte islands now properly exist and are carefully populated by towns and airports. Numerous target areas have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from May 30, 1977 (the beginning of the Mozambican Civil War) to December 31, 2018. Despite the given time frame, this terrain is not right for reproducing the Mozambican Civil War. Instead, the terrain is meant to pit the French Navy against the combined forces of Mozambique and Madagascar in a what if scenario where the Comoros and Mayotte islands are being threatened by the two Soviet-aligned countries.
    The French (Blue Side) only have four flyable airfields. Don't even try to fly Blue Side long-range bombers from said small airfields; I am providing a rather realistic representation of the area, where the French are tasked with the defence and patrol of the skies above the Comoros and Mayotte islands.
    Having SF2NA is a must, as I have enabled naval ops. If your mod's folder contains French ships and carriers, you'll see fleets being generated during single missions.
    Ground Objects are not included. It's up to the user to find and obtain anything that can be useful for the proposed terrain's scenario.

  18. Iraq, Western Asia (2003-2018)

    Iraq, Western Asia (2003-2018) Terrain
    August 13th, 2017 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the IR2003 terrain released long time ago by Wrench.
    The entire map has been retargetized and retiled using a whole new tileset, combining tiles from JSF_Aggie, Stary, Centurion-1 and my bad transition tiles. All major water bodies, lakes and some minor rivers have been hand-tiled. The Caspian Sea coast had to be hand-tiled as well. Numerous target areas have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from May 2, 2003 (the day following the end of major combat operations of Operation Iraqi Freedom) to December 31, 2018; it is designed for fictional clashes between US-backed Iraq and Iran. It's the perfect playground for the fictive Operation Darius scenario created by the CombatACE community. Iran is Enemy, Iraq is Friendly, other countries are Friendly as well.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, certain Iraqi airbases will be abandoned by 2004 or by other dates (some airports were converted to simple U.S. Army FOBs), etc. Some airfields won't be available after a certain date and/or will change name according to historic changes.
    All main targets are in their Real World locations (I tried to be as accurate as possible, to such a level that even surpasses ThirdWire's stock terrains). Shiraz Int'l Airport and Prince Sultan Airbase are beyond the Wall. However, if you have SF2NA, long range AI flights can be generated from such airbases.
    Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain most of them from Wrench's original Iran-Iraq terrains, or from other mod packages.

    >Credits (in no particular order):
    -Wrench, who reworked the original terrain and provided the CombatACE community with plenty of mods and scenarios to play with. He gave me invaluable advise, the tools I needed and introduced me to the beautiful, exhausting world of terrain modding/making. Thank you, sir!
    -swambast, who offered to build two high quality 3D models (Mosul Dam and Mosul Grand Mosque), featured for the first time in this terrain, it's an honor! He also provided major help in tracking and fixing common and uncommon bugs. If the terrain is stable (no CTDs), it's his merit!
    -Nyghtfall, for creating 3d models of the Kuwait Water Towers and Kuwait Freedom Towers.
    -tiopilotos, for providing reworked .tga tiles with new alpha channels. Much appreciated!
    -Spudknocker, who helped me complete the 1980-2003 beta version of the terrain, providing additional target areas.
    -gerwin, whose TFDtool has proved to be essential in today's terrain making. If the terrain is pretty accurate to RL it's also because of him. I included his very nice Airfield 7+8 Addon Pack, too.
    -MigBuster, I have included some of his great hi-res textures for runways.
    -mue, for the improved shaders he made, which I have included and reworked for the terrain, and for the tools he made for SF2 modding.
    -luk1978, for the waternormal bitmap he shared at the SF2 screenshots thread. Your mods are very interesting!
    -Crusader, who provided me with the info I needed about ODS and other stuff related to targets.
    -JSF_Aggie, for his high quality DS tileset, which I have expanded with my horrible transition tiles.
    -7eleven, who directed me to a website filled with Desert Storm related info.
    -Centurion-1, since I used some tiles from his Desert 4 Mountain Regions+ Addon. I tried to contact you for permission, but it seems RL got in your way. Your WIP mod about the Iran/Iraq war gave me the motivation to complete this terrain. The least I can say is thank you. Best of luck, mate!
    -Stary, because his tilesets are pure art. I borrowed a few TODs and tiles from his excellent IsraelME tileset.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -Stratos, who supported me support during the terrain's development.
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    I am totally sure I missed someone, especially because the terrain was born from Wrench's original ones. So I also included Wrench's original readme files from his IR and IR2003 terrains to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

  19. Alaska, Bering Strait (1955-2018)

    Alaska, Bering Strait (1955-2018) Terrain
    April 13th, 2017 (1st Release)
    by Menrva

    >For Strike Fighters 2: Europe, Recommended Full-5 Merged
    This is a complete remake of the DBS terrain made by Major Lee and further tweaked by Wrench.
    Wrench kindly allowed me to improve upon his work; the entire map has been retargetized and retiled using a whole new tileset, combining tiles from Brain32 and Stary. Some water bodies, lakes and rivers have been hand-tiled. Most of the terrain has been hand-tiled to a great extent. Numerous target areas have been added in order to expand playability, targets of opportunity and year range.
    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from June 22, 1955 (the date of the first known Cold War incident in the Bering Straits between the U.S. and the Soviets) to December 31, 2018.
    I didn't bother to add all of the possible RL airports. However, when compared to the original DBS terrain, this one has a lot more to offer, especially on the Blue Side. The Soviets (Red Side) only have two flyable airfields. Don't even try to fly Red Side long-range bombers from said small airfields. Reason for this is that the original DBS terrain was rather fictional and included airbases which in reality didn't and don't exist. I made major researches and what I am providing here is a realistic representation of the area, given the terrain engine limitations. Anyway, I added some Off Map Airbases for both Blue Side and Red Side; if you have SF2NA, you can benefit from this addition, as long range AI flights can be generated from such airbases.
    The area in reality is pretty barren, so don't expect a terrain with much targets. Still, you can enjoy CAS missions at St. Lawrence Island and Lopp Lagoon being invaded by Soviet forces, and the usual dogfights over the Bering Straits.
    Ground Objects are not included. You can obtain them from Wrench's original DBS terrain release. Only very few of them should be needed anyway.

    This is a complete remake of the DS/IR terrain released long time ago by Wrench.
    The entire map has been retargetized and retiled using a whole new tileset, combining tiles from JSF_Aggie, Stary, Centurion-1 and my bad transition tiles. All major water bodies, lakes and some minor rivers have been hand-tiled. The Caspian Sea coast had to be hand-tiled as well.

    This terrain features a fresh new 250m resolution heightmap (instead of the stock 500m resolution), allowing for greater details and precision in elevation changes; overall it provides the whole terrain with a better look.
    The terrain spans from September 22, 1980 (the beginning of the Iran/Iraq War) to May 1, 2003 (the end of major combat operations of Operation Iraqi Freedom); it is designed for the Iran/Iraq War, Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Desert Fox and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Iraq is Enemy, Iran is Friendly, other countries are Friendly as well. Due to limitations in the terrain engine, and not wanting to make three different terrains, I opted to set Iran as Friendly together with other countries such as Saudi Arabia. While you might see US planes spawn in Iran during Single Missions even if the 1979 Iranian Revolution already happened, it's up to the users to play with missions in the editor to fix any historical oddities.
    Targets reflect Real World events as accurately as possible; for instance, after the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, Kuwaiti airfields are set as Neutral, enemy targets appear inside Kuwait, etc. Some airfields won't be available after a certain date and/or will change name according to historic changes. Various Operation Desert Storm expeditionary bases and FOBs have been added, and will appear only during Operation Desert Storm dates.
    All main targets are in their Real World locations (I tried to be as accurate as possible, to such a level that even surpasses ThirdWire's stock terrains). Shiraz Int'l Airport and Prince Sultan Airbase are beyond the Wall. However, if you have SF2NA, long range AI flights can be generated from such airbases.

    -Centurion-1, since I used some tiles from his Desert 4 Mountain Regions+ Addon. I tried to contact you for permission, but it seems RL got in your way. Your WIP mod about the Iran/Iraq war gave me the motivation to complete this terrain. The least I can say is thank you. Best of luck, mate!
    -Stary, because his tilesets are pure art. I borrowed a few TODs and tiles from his excellent IsraelME tileset.
    -Gepard, for his great tutorials about terrain making, in the SF1 Knowledge Base at CombatACE. It's a gold mine!
    -Stratos, who supported me support during the terrain's development.
    -krfrge, who has produced a tutorial for recreating SF2-like planning maps, which prompted me to work on templates and my own high quality planning maps. Thank you very much!
    -comrpnt, for his Approach and Airfield Lighting Pack mod packages for SF1 series, which I reworked and included.
    I am totally sure I missed someone, especially because the terrain was born from Wrench's original ones. So I also included Wrench's original readme files from his IR and IR2003 terrains to the end of giving proper credit to everyone involved directly or not.

  21. Battle of Britain 2 Terrain Operation Seelöwe

    Battle of Britain 2 Terrain Operation Seelöwe
    *****************************************************
    This mod is made for SF2E.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    I.
    Battle of Britain 2 terrain Operation Seelöwe is a complete rework of my Battle of Britain terrain from 2009. It is completly new tiled, to give it a much better look. Each tile has now a size of 1024x1024 pixel, what is 4 times higher than in the old terrain.
    The terrain is made with "Operation Seelöwe" in mind. This operation was a german military plan from 1940 to land with strong forces on english soil. This operation was planed in a timeframe from summer till early autumn 1940. Thatswhy i made no seasoned tileset. To simulate the ground battles after the german invasion i set some german beachheads on the map, so that now CAS missions can be flown.  
    The area of Londow along the river Themse is new tiled by using satellite images. To hold the frame rate of the game as high as possible, i made the rivertiles not as tga files, but as ordinary jpg files. Thatswhy you will not find waves and reflexions on the river Themse and the most other rivers in this terrain.
    The City of London is populated with house blocks. So is is destroyable by bomb raids.
    The airfields in Britain are made by using old air footages from WW2. The design of the german bases is fiction. I was not able to find air footages from 1940 for this airfields. Please make sure, that your bombers have the setting
    MinBaseSize=MEDIUM    
    in their data.ini of the plane. Otherwise the bombers will also use fighter bases.
    At the moment Battle of Britain 2 terrain contains 312 target areas. Some target areas are named PQsomething. PQ comes from the german word "Planquadrat", which is in english "grid". I decided to use the term PQ to simulate german planningmaps.
    The terrain comes with two new nations. First the Luftwaffe of the Third Reich and the fictionary Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte of the Republic of Germany. Both nations have own insiginas, which you can select for single missions. The swastika i made only in a "camouflaged" version, because in Germany it is not allowed to handle this symbol in a game.
    I have also moded the missioncontrol.ini file. Now the planes are closer to their base when they start a landing approach.
    The terrain comes with 3 campaigns.
    No.1 is Operation Seelöwe, the german invasion in Britain in late summer 1940
    No.2 is the so called Nonstop Offensive, the british air strikes over the Channel in 1941
    No.3 is Operation Seelöwe in 1956 with a fiction Republic of Germany as invader.
    For the campaigns you need following planes:
    BF109E-4 by RussoUK         https://combatace.com/files/file/14035-bf109e-47z/
    Ju-88A-1 by Veltro2k   https://combatace.com/files/file/15445-junkers-ju-88-a1/

    WW2 RAF Bombers pack by Wrench   https://combatace.com/files/file/13795-sf2-ww2-raf-bombers-pak/
    For the german 1956 campaign you need a MiG-17 cockpit

  22. South East Europe BETA

    This is a Beta mod, anyone who wants to help and finish it, thank you in advance. Also for campaigns that I failed to activate due to strategic nodes, ground troops are therefore inactive. I hope that someone will not resent me because I used some elements from other mods, all with the best intention to bring the best possible atmosphere to everyone on the forum here. Thank you for your understanding. I also thank my development team, first of all Stratos, Tiopilotos and others.

  23. SF2 Hawaii/Northern Pacific Terrain, Modern (v.2)

    SF2 Hawaii/Northern Pacific Terrain, Modern (v.2)        9/5/2020
    - For SF2, Any & All (Full-5 Merged, + Expansion Paks REQUIRED!!!)
    This is a rebuild of the WW2 Hawaiian Islands terrain into a more "modern" version (1950s and later). This is NOT a WW2 version; it is for post-war into modern times. Do NOT use this in your WW2 PTO mods folder!! You must also have SF2NA are part of you merged installs. This was built and tested in the NA environment.
    You may experience longer than normal loading times due to the number of terrain objects. It should be noted, due to the inherent scaling issue in the SF series, objects placed herein are, for the most part, representative of their Real World counterparts. See "Notes" for more information. 
    When in game, on the Terrain Selection drop-down, you'll see:
    Hawaii (Modern)
    Even though the folder remains in it's original name of just "Hawaii".
    As is recommended, unzip this archive to a temp folder or your desktop, and you'll have access to the rest of the readme for it's instructions. It's recommended you -read- the document through after unzipping, but =BEFORE= installing.
     
    As always, the "Notes and Other Nonsense" section may make for entertaining reading. Down in that section is a list of required ships that you're going to need!! I've supplied SOME items, but you End Users (tm) are responsible for all the rest. !!PLEASE!!! read the "Notes" section for more more detailed explainations of this terrain, and it's limitations. 
    Good Hunting!

  24. SF2 The Forest Bowl Terrain, V.2

    SF2 Forest Bowl Terrain, V.2                4/5/2020
    - For SF2, Any & All (Full-4/5 Merged, + Expansion Packs Reccomended)
    This is a (mostly) complete revamp of "The Forest Bowl" terrain that was included in the (uncompleted) SF2 Civil/Firefighter Mod. It has been completely retargeted to make it a useful 'combat' terrain. All new movement inis, targets, types, etc. Also, now all 4 seasons are working. This terrain takes place in the fictional world of the Alliance vs the Global Sedition. The map is fully functional for ALL mission types with year spans from the 1940s through the far future (well, at least 2050) ie: There are NO mission type or time limitations.
    Many and Lots (tm) of new terrain objects have been added, all cities are now valid targets. Shipping, Ground Attack and Armed Recon missions have a good number of routes for both sides to utlize. As is my habit, the terrain is covered with Easter Eggs; you shouldn't have any problems finding them. In short, the terrain is a myth-mash.
    You may experience longer than normal loading times due to the number of terrain objects and seasonal tiles. 
    As is reccomended, unzip this archive to a temp folder or your desktop, and you'll have access to the rest of the readme for it's instructions. It's reccomended you -read- the document through after unzipping, but =BEFORE= installing.
     
    As always, the Notes and Other Nonesense section may make for entertaining reading.

  25. Faroe Islands terrain

    Faroe islands 1.0
    *****************************************************
    This terrain is written for SF2NA.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I. Short description:
    North of Scotland you will find small groups of islands, the Shetlands and the Faroe. They are nothing more than tiny rocks, surrounded by the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. On the first view completly unimportant rocks somewhere in the nowhere. But a second view shows high economical values. The islands sitting in the middle of rich fishing grounds, and then, even more, there is oil. North Sea oil.
    But not enough. A powerfull nation, that is able to install a base at the Faroe, rules all the waters between Iceland and the british islands. A hostile nation might be even able to raise a blockade over Great Britain.
    This makes some scenarios possible:
    First the classical what if the Soviets would had captured the Faroe and the US Navy starts an attempt to push them out.
    Second, what if America sends the Marines?
    Third, what if Britain tries to defeat the Soviets with own power?
    Forth, what if Hitler-Germany would have captured the Faroe?
    Fifth, what if the EU raise a blockade over a Brexit UK?
    Sixth, what if Britain was bought by President Trump instead Greenland and John Bull stand up to fight fort the british independence?
     
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    II. INSTALLATION:
    To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic.

    Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2NorthAtlantic /terrain folder.

    Thats it.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    III. Modifications
    Faroe islands terrain is made so, that you can play it out of the box. You will find a classic Cold war scenario US Navy vs Soviet forces.
    Other possible scenarios are prepared.
    Open the folder Goodies and you will find the folder Nation ini
    In this folder you find 6 subfolders, one for each scenarios i have descriped above.
    Choose the one you like.
    In this subfolders you find the file FAEROER_NATION.ini.
    Copy this file to the Faeroer folder and let overwrite the existing file and enjoy the other scenario. (BTW personaly i prefer Brexit scenario. Flying Hunters vs Hunters is really fun.)
     
    Faroe islands terrain is made so, that you has 2 fixed carrer stations. For the red side a station north of the Shetlands. For the blue side south of the Faroes.
    If you want to have multible carrier stations, than you must open the Subfolder "multible carrier stations" and copy the file FAROE_WATER.bmp to the Faroe folder.

    When i started to make Faroe islands terrain i used TOD files made by M.Broers for the IcelandNA HFD terrain. Later i found out, that on the Faroes no trees exist. So i decided to remove the TOD files. If you want trees and TOD buildings, the copy the tod files in the Faroe folder. But be aware, there are not all tiles fitted with tods. It looks a little bit strange.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    IV. Credits.
    The basic Tileset i took from M.Breors terrain IcelandNA HFD.
    The basic files for the emergency runways, parking areas and quais are made by ErikGen.
    The OilRig was made by RussoUK for my PersianGulf terrain.
    I hope i have not forgotten someone.
    .
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    V. This Terrain is Freeware. Commercial use is not allowed.
    And i say it again for the YAP, YankeeAirPirates file thiefs, the use of this terrain and parts of  the terrain for commercial use is not allowed.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    VI.
    For remarks, comments, bugs, etc please use CombatAce forum or send me a PM.
    Hope you enjoy it.
