The 555th gets a new home.

 

Build from scratch with stock and custom objects that seemed to fit.

 

A great help were the runway / taxiway objects from Gepard

other objects from POLAK, wingwiner,Grumpapotamus, DBS objects and others.

The stock base just didn't do justice to the real one.

Started out after being impressed by the DaNang Mod and some pics from YAP.

Groundwork was done using Flight simulator Scenery creator and Polaks Tutorial on conversion to useable Thrid wire format.

 

Hope it will be impressive once everything is sorted out.

 

Populating it with statics isn't really planned but should be doable, we will see.

 

Working on the lights right now.

 

And nope it's not Aviano AB.

 

UBon RTAFB is the place, 1969 the timeframe, more or less.

 

 

Anyone knows of a small mast, height 10-15 meters, painted red/white without any Antennas cables and preferably in LOD format?

Would be usefull for the Floodlights.

And anybody has a vertical surface LOD roughly 20x2 meters that can be textured with a tga.

In dire need for the special writing. ;-)

There's a microware tower in the Factory place; that could be usable, but I think it's on the rather tall side, probably on the order of 20-30 meters in height. It's taller than the GuardTower1 by about 1/3rd. Look for 'satantenne'

 

I, too, am looking for a large signpost/billboard..... Fracture had one started. Look for the Thread "A Call for 3D Action" by Major Lee

Wrench thanks for the tip with the factory place, that one's up next for catalogizing it's objects.

 

Another question what color did the base street lights in NAM have? Slightly orange or flat white Sorry don't have a clue there?

 

And settig taxi lights in a arc is a royal pain in the a$$.

 

;-)

the 'factory5' object is a small cylindrical tank laying on it's side, with a support structure (like a propane tank). It also as an emitter for a small smoke stream... I renamed it 'cryo-storage tank', like for LOX or LNitogen, kinda thing. Had a picture of it, but can't seem to find right now

Let there be lights!

 

Anyone knows how to get a light that actually illuminates the surrounding?

 

I've been unsuccessfull so far.

Another one:

 

Tower and Pedro pad / Spectre ramp

 

with Capuns UH-1DS static by the tower and the C-130 Static on the ramp.

 

Getting the lights position on the tower was frustrating to put it mildly.

I'd watch out for that runway postioning....those hills are a little too high and a little too close. The AI has problems when landing near 'mountains'. Ran into this several times too many in SoCal, ASW, Modern Darwin, the WW2 map rebuilds, and now in the Libya rebuild.

 

when they 'stack up' on their landing approach, they'll may fly right into them. Might want to 'lower' them somehow (perhaps by extending the 'flatten airfield' area by 3-5 km). Even in not geographacily accurate, it'll keep them from crashing on landing.

Thanks for the insight wrench,

so I think it's time to learn the Terrain editor. ;-).

and if I'm into it I could add another airfield or the like....

THose fuel tanks look a bit exposed there with the streetlights aound them, but hey, who an I to criticise? I ain't got the patience for a project like that. I tend to go a bit 'David Banner-ish' when things go wrong. It's looking great. Gonna be great eye candy when coming in to land.... :welcome:

Some things still bother me

 

- the wrong Hangars on the ramp, should be a small two storey high peaked roof type, YAP might have them

 

- no adequate revetments for the Spectres and no static model for them too

- missing H-type barack for USAF base area

 

As for the fuel tanks: no i didn't erect the at that place ;-)

Browsing through the ages old Factory Place objects found this Hangar.

Still not the right type but closer in shape and size than stock Hangar1 or Hangar2.

 

 

Did i already thank Gepard for his terrain work and the airfield objects. If you haven't already downloaded his new airbases, do yourself a favor and grab them.

Without these and his insight into airfield layout Ubon wouldn't be possible.

(slaps self on forehead)!!!DoH!!!

 

The "halle" the open one is halle3, IIRC. I spend so much time laying them out, I never stop to look at what they are. With a little tweeking of the targets ini, you could place parked aircraft inside them. I think I put some trucks in one, somwhere...

And if you're really industrious, you could have internal lights suspened from the ceilings (like comprt's lit shelters)

Some more work done.

 

- Base properly orientated

- Hangars lit interior

- a poor mans atemp at a Spectre skin for Capuns C130 Static

- Some more buildings added

 

If time permits will pack things up for a "beta" release today.
