About This File
FORMOSA STRAIT TERRAIN
Formosa Strait terrain is made for "Wings Over Europe" WOE.
With certain limitations you can use it in WOV, WOI and SFP1 too.
(See PS on bottom of this file.)
Formosa Strait Terrain covers the island of Taiwan, a part of the coastline of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) and the Strait between which has different names like Formosa Strait, Taiwan Strait or Taiwanhaixia. All names i use are taken from an old german atlas and it seems to be that there are a lot of different transcriptions of chinese names in german or english language.
Formosa Strait Terrain is a nearly 100% terrain, what means, that the distances are not cut down to 60% as in the GermanyCE standard terrain.Certain differences are caused by warp while converting GOTOPO30 satellite height data into WOE format.
The position of the runways should be more or less correct, their direction is not always as in reality. The airfields themself are made by using variations of WOE standard airfileds and by using the 9 airfileds i made for Deutschland terrain.

14 waypointdefinitions for panzer battles

Q: How i can get Formosa Strait Terrain running in WOV, WOI or SFP1
1. Open file Formosa.ini
2. Look for line CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat
3. Replace this line with:
for WOV: CatFile=..\VietnamSEA\VietnamSEA.cat
for WOI: CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat
for SFP1: CatFile=..\Desert\Desert.cat
4. Download a WOE capable terrain replacement tileset via Internet. Such tilesets you can find at www.combatace.com
Limitations are caused by the fact, that certain objects which are standard in WOE (power plants, bridges) are not always included in WOV, WOI or SFP1.
