About This File
Iceland 2015 v0.1 beta
for Wings Over Europe
with thanks to Gepard for illuminating the path
This is a beta preview of my Iceland 2015 terrain which is in the early stages of development.
Installation is as simple as dropping the Iceland folder into your WoE/Terrain folder, and selecting "Iceland 2015" from the terrain list.
This terrain is usable in SFP1 & WoV, but you will need to edit the CatFile= flag in the Iceland.ini file to point to the correct terrain Catfile for the version of the game you are running. You will also need a Germany_CE replacement tileset. Brain32's is excellent, with treemod by CA_Stary, and you can get it here:-
In fact, I recommend installing Brain32's tileset even if you are running WoE.
Just drop the tileset into your Iceland folder, and go fly.
Please be advised this is an early beta release, for preview and feedback purposes only. Single missions will run, and there are flyable airbases for Red and Blue sides.
But, there are a number of glaringly obvious tiling issues, and be very careful about using Alt+N as you are likely to crash into the side of a fjord somewhere.
For some reason, Blue side anti-ship missions tend not to work properly.
Also, non-airfield target areas are completely unpopulated, so don't go looking for lots of stuff to blow up, as it just ain't there, yet. . .
Now, if someone wants to tell me the easy way to create a new tileset from scratch, I'd be delighted ;-) The topography of Iceland is wonderfully varied, from Glaciers to Volcanic Lava flows, from pure blue crystal springs to beaches of black sand, and from barren craggy rocks to verdant pasture. Just now it all looks a bit, well, green and boring. My early efforts at creating terrain tiles are amateurish to say the least. Ho-hum, back to the drawing board. . .
As ever, feedback, suggestions and requests are most welcome. You can get me at combatace.
Oh yeah, this mod is released as freeware, you can mod it to your heart's content, and re-release for the benefit of the community. Credit should be given to the original developer, i.e. me ;-)
You are NOT permitted to use this in any payware package, OK?
