Iceland 02 Full-Scale Terrain v2.0

 

by Baltika

 

***********************************

 

This is a major upgrade to my little Iceland terrain.

 

 

 

New features:-

 

Forest tiles and trees - yup, there are now some forests on Iceland, just as in reality.

 

Extensive targetisation upgrade, with many newly targetised areas.

 

Several new terrain tile types.

 

Network of NATO radar stations, with accurate operational dates.

 

Re-tiling of some coastal areas to fix tsunamis.

 

Some terrain HFD work for greater accuracy.

 

Custom environment file to create snowstorm conditions for inclement weather. Cheers to Stary for that one ;-)

 

 

No substitute for SF2:NA, I know, but Merry Christmas everybody ;-)

 

 

This will likely be the final version of this terrain. But, if anybody spots any show-stopping bugs, please drop me a line at Combatace and I'll try to sort them out.

 

 

 

Slainthe!

***********************************

 

 

Thanks to:-

 

Gepard for his terrain tutorials, which started this adventure off all those years ago. Also for his WoE European style runways which are included here.

 

JSFAggie for his Highway runway Mod, which has been altered and modded for use as glacier-based FARPs.

 

Brain32 for sound advice on creating terrain tiles. Cheers mate;-) Your hi-res lava tile has not been used here, but may see the light of day if I ever manage a hi-res set for this little terrain.

 

CA_Stary for being terrain guru extraordinaire. Also, thanks to Stary for his Heavy Snowfall mod for WoX series. I have included this for Iceland terrain and updated it for SF2 shaders, so you will get near-whiteout blizzard conditions for inclement weather setting. Happy flying ;-)

 

Thanks also to Brain32 and CA_Stary for their forest tiles and trees, which I have adapted for use as Iceland's sparse forests. Cheers guys ;-)

 

GrimViper, for pointing out that Iceland does actually have trees and forests. . . Cheers mate, hope you like it ;-)

 

Wrench, Dave & all the gang at CA for invaluable advice on how to make things work, garnered over the years and hopefully put to good effect here.

 

MajorLee, Deuces, Edward and anyone else who made a terrain mod and posted about how to do it. Thanks!

 

TK for making the whole bag of bolts hang together.

 

 

***********************************

 

 

Installation instructions:-

 

Delete your old "ICELAND02" folder. This version is a complete replacement for any previous version.

 

Unzip the package to your desktop, or wherever is convenient.

 

Drop the "ICELAND02" folder into your Username\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighters2\Terrains folder.

 

If there is no terrains folder in your mod folder, create one and drop the ICELAND02 folder into it.

 

Drop the "Effects" folder into your Username\Saved Games\Thirdwire\StrikeFighters2\ folder.

 

That's it! Go fly, and fight for the liberation of Iceland.

 

This terrain has been completed using SF2 November 2011 patch. It is not supported on WoX series or earlier patch levels. But, if you really must try, use the files included in the "Use_in_WoX" folder for SF1 series. Your mileage may vary.

 

 

If you use a custom environmental mod, bear in mind that any changes must be made to the ICELAND02_ENVIRONMENTSYSTEM.INI file included here. Just make sure your new file includes the following line:-

 

InclementEffect=BlizzardEffect

 

Or else, you will lose the snowfall weather conditions. It is set up this way so as not to interfere with any other environmental mod you may use.
