Formosa - WW2 PTO Terrain for SF2 8/6/2014
- For SF2, Any & All (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)
= For Adventures in the Far Western Pacific =
This terrain is a rebuild of a very old 1stGen "Cold War" version. There was no readme with it, and I've not been able to find who originally created it.
It has been converted to a WW2 terrain, representing the situation from November, 1944 through the War's End (although, in Real Life, the air campaing didn't start until January, 1945). For gaming purposes, northern Luzon is considered "secure", and USAAF units will be flying from airfields there. For the USN/BPF, there are SF2NA style "CV Stations" (hence the need for a Full-5 merged install, and the PTO mods folder built FROM the SF2NA exe) in the Eastern Pacific, and South China Sea. There is no station for Japanese Naval units as the Imperial Navy, for the most part, had ceased to exist.
There many new GroundObject and Terrain Objects included in this terrain mod. All (if not most of) the other Ground Objects you should already have.
The LimitedNations statement is set to TRUE, allowing only for 'regional powers'. The AllowedMission= statement is active, as there are =NO= Ground Attack routes (ie: CAs missions) The terrain also makes use of the 'AllowedDates" statement, preventing use BEFORE November, 1944. But there are plenty of truck and shipping routes, and LOTS of places for STRIKE missions.
*Geophysical Disclaimer: some rivers and other water features may not follow their Real Life courses, or be placed in their Real Life locations, or exist at all. Several cities and other physical features may also fall into that classification. Some cities exist only as 'named places'. Where possible (and discoverable), original Japanese style city/place names are used, with the more modern Chinese as well in parenthesis. While the correct types of targets are placed within the various cities, they may not match their Real Life positions due to Height Field and Tile constraints. Also, this terrain is =NOT= full scale. *
As is ALWAYS 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.
Please also read the New Standard Usage Discalimer, as it's been changed slightly to reflect a change in my policy. It's listed at the bottom, in the Legal Statement Section, with the URL back to the CA post.
