About This File
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?
To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic.
Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2NorthAtlantic /terrain folder.
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.
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.
