10 new airbases for SFP1/WOE

10 new airbases for SFP1/WOE


New Airbases for SFP1 / WOE

v. 3.0

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

1: This is an update of version 2.0 to make the airfields compatible with the October 08 patch.

The other rason to make a new version is that Capun requested to remove his files from this mod. Thats pity, because his static aircrafts were a nice feature of my airfields.

 

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

2. This is the release of the 10 new airbases for WOE.

The bases are:

GDR (East Germany) Drewitz

Holzdorf

Marxwalde

Preschen

Trollenhagen

Zerbst

FRG (West Germany) Ahlhorn

Büchel

Hopsten

Pferdsfeld

 

All bases i made by using satellite pictures to place the groundobjects to become a look that is similar to the original airbases.

 

 

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

3. INSTALLATION instruction:

 

Be carefull! Backup of your _targets.ini and _types first!

 

1. Unzip all files into your Terrain/GermanyCE folder.

 

Thats all

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

4. A word to modders

In the folder "Airfields raw files" you find 10 txt files.

Each file containes the lines of one airbase. So it is easier for you to copy this unique airbases for use in other terrains target_data.ini file..

 

 

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

5. Final words.

I want to say thank you to Enrico Gennari who made the runway, parking areas and taxiway files. I also want to say thank you to the unkown guy who made the basic file for the GFD-12 shelters which i have taken from EuroWW2 terrain.

 

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

 

This airbases are freeware and are not allowed for commercial use.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

Hoo-yeah!

 

This looks GREAT!

 

I've only ever been to one of these bases IRL, Alhorn, which was a FOL for the 81st TFW out of RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge.

 

It will be cool to see it in game.

 

I hope the other 3 FOL's get your attention in future work. Sembach, Leipheim, and Norvenich.

 

___EDIT___

 

Swapped out Alhorn and Norvenich, as I realized which one you had done. I interchange them, as they were both Woodbridges WAFOLS, not

Bentwaters, which is where I was stationed.

Hey guys,

 

I found a minor error in the GERMANYCE_TARGETS.INI file.

 

I kept wondering why I would blow up as soon as I started if I was at Ahlhorn or Büchel airbases. I did some investigating, and noticed that if I went single ship, I was okay....but showed up dead center of the runway facing totally the wrong direction. 2 ship or more...blowed up.

 

Found the references where guys 'show up' for taxi are in the specific ini files for the airfield. Those looked correct...

 

Finally, went to the GERMANYCE_TARGETS.INI file, and noticed that for Ahlhorn and Büchel airbases, the referenced ini was listed as airbase_*.ini...NOT airfield_*.ini. Corrected and now all is well...

 

Posting this just to help anyone else having the same issue with these airbases. Very nice work dude! Thanks for your efforts.

good find, a 3rd airfield has the same error :

This lines below are the first attempt to make the new base Zerbst in the GDR (East Germany). It is not complete. The runways and taxiways are correct, the other things are only placeholders which must still get their correct positions. There are also no Tower, Hangars, parked airplanes etc. As said, only the first attempt.

 

Copy the lines into your Deutschland_targets.ini and replace all lines of the already existing Zerbst GSSD AFB.

Hey Gepard, any chance you could in corporate JSF Aggies roadside airbases with tour airbases? I want to install yours but I have his and really not sure how to have both. If I am making any sense at all.

I second that, right now it's either the roadside bases or the 8 airfields.

Would be great to have the both.

Especially in the former DDR, a couple of airbases (Laage, Preschen) had taxiways connecting them to nearby Autobahnen with runways, though I can imagine that it could be a very complicated job to model a combination like that......

 

Aju,

Actually, I have both bases installed Dave, I could send you the ini files if you like.

Is there any way I could get that as well? I've been holding off in fear of screwing one up.

I dont know the roadside airbases, but i guess, that there should be no problems while using my and Aggies parallel. But this is only a guess. Where can i find Aggies airbases? It seems to be, that im to stupid to use the search button.

Okay, heres a description of what I did to combine JSF_Aggie's roadbase install and Gepards 8 new airbases install.

 

The 2 files you have to concern yourself with are the GERMANYCE_TYPES.INI and GERMANYCE_TARGETS.INI files in the GermanyCE terrain directory.

 

First, the GERMANYCE_TYPES.INI file (here after referered to as the types file).

 

All the types file does is give characteristics to the various objects of the terrain - as an example:

 

[TargetType002]

Name=barrack2

FullName=Barrack

ModelName=barrack2.lod

TargetType=MISC

ActiveYear=0

TargetValue=20

UseGroundObject=FALSE

DamagePoint=10.0

ArmorValue=0.0

ArmorType=0

RepairRate=0.150

StartDetectChance=0

StartIdentifiedChance=0

IncreaseDetectChanceKey=0

MaxVisibleDist=8000.0

DamagedModel=

DestroyedEffect=MediumShortStructureCollapse

DestroyedModel=barrack2_destroyed

SecondaryChance=25

SecondaryEffect=SmallExplosionEffect

 

Anyway, as far as I can tell, both guys simply put new object types at the tail end of the stock WOE file (which ends after the [TargetType098] entry). If they did any substitutions, they didn't mention it in the readme or I couldn't tell. Simply take your original types file (assuming you haven't added other mods already) and add all the items from Gepards and JSF_Aggies types files after [TargetType098]. Renumber as appropriate...you should be at [TargetType116] by the time you are done.

 

Onto the GERMANYCE_TARGETS.INI file (hereafter known as the targets file).

 

Now, this file is a little more intensive. Both guys did substitutions here...so be ready for lots of cut and paste.

 

First, for JSF_Aggie's file, what he did was add lots of detail to already existing 'hooks' in the stock targets file. As an example, here is a stock targets roadbase entry:

 

[TargetArea242]

Name=Bakum Highway Strip

Position=341000.000000,651000.000000

Radius=8485.281250

ActiveYear=0

Location=1

Alignment=FRIENDLY

 

and here is what JSF_Aggie did to make it useable (snipped for room):

 

[TargetArea242]

Name=Bakum Highway Strip

Position=341000.000000,651000.000000

Radius=8485.281250

ActiveYear=0

Location=1

AirfieldDataFile=ROAD_AIRFIELD1.ini

NumSquadrons=1

Alignment=FRIENDLY

Target[001].Type=Road_Runway

Target[001].Offset=0.00,0.00

Target[001].Heading=0.0

Target[002].Type=Shelter4

Target[002].Offset=60.00,635.00

Target[002].Heading=270.0

Target[003].Type=Shelter4

Target[003].Offset=60.00,670.00

Target[003].Heading=270.0

Target[004].Type=Shelter4

Target[004].Offset=60.00,705.00

Target[004].Heading=270.0

Target[005].Type=Shelter4

Target[005].Offset=60.00,740.00

Target[005].Heading=270.0

Target[006].Type=Shelter4

Target[006].Offset=60.00,775.00

Target[006].Heading=270.0

etc, etc, etc.....

 

Gepard did something similar in terms of changes, but added much more detail to already usable airfields.

 

The nice thing is that both authors of their respective mods is that they listed the airfields they were making changes on. So all you have to do is cut and paste the new entries from their respective mods over the original entries in your current targets file.

 

As far as I could tell, otherwise, the mods did not have any common files...or the files were exactly the same (date, time stamp, etc). So other than the types and targets ini files, you shouldn't have any problem combining them.

 

I'm going to PM both you guys, and if you approve, I'll post my target and type files for anyone interested.

Gepard,

 

Superb work as always. You inspired me to create the "Blue Airfields". I have learned much from your work.

 

I greatly appreciate your efforts.

 

Happy Holidays
