Formosa Strait Terrain version 1.0

Formosa Strait Terrain version 1.0


FORMOSA STRAIT TERRAIN

=====================

 

I.

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.)

==============================================

 

II.

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.

 

Formosa Terrian has 233 target areas

this are

14 waypointdefinitions for panzer battles

2 missile bases (PRC)

6 coast defence missile batteries(PRC)

15 Bridges (PRC)

10 Bridges (Taiwan)

19 SAM sites (PRC)

14 SAM sites (Taiwan)

7 airfields (PRC)

15 airfields (Taiwan)

41 industrial targets in towns (PRC)

44 industrial targets in towns (Taiwan)

1 powerplant complex with 3 industrial areas (PRC)

1 power plant complex(Taiwan)

2 ports (PRC)

9 ports (Taiwan)

4 EWR (PRC)

5 EWR (Taiwan)

3 PRC Warship groups

4 taiwanese Warship groups

3 Carrier Battle stations

etc

 

To use Formosa Strait Terrain you should have installed a WeaponPack and western SAM.

You can fins HAWK SAM and WeaponPack at www.combatace.com

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

III.

INSTALLATION

 

1.)unzip all files into your Wings over Europe/Terrain folder

 

2.)unzip Groundobject.zip into your Objects folder.

(this file install modified versions of the SumnerFram2 destroyer and the Cargoship. It also install a Silkwork Anti Ship missiles launcher and chinese Panzers of the Types 59, 63, 69 and 80)

 

Thats it.

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

IV.

I want to say thank you to Darreck for the Coolingtowers and Enrico Gennari for the files which i used to create the ports, which were originaly made for individual airbases which are available for SFP1 Deutschland terrain and WOE.

 

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

 

V.

Formosa Strait Terrain IS FREEWARE. COMMERCIAL USE IS NOT ALLOWED.

If you find bugs please post them in StrikeFighters section of Combatace.com forum.

Hope you enjoy it.

Q: How i can get Formosa Strait Terrain running in WOV, WOI or SFP1

 

A:

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.

The terrain is great! Real fun to fly around in. I have noticed very few SAM threats as I fly around dropping JDAMs on heads. It would also be cool to have carrier stations, complete with fleet support ships.

There are 14 taiwanese SAM sites and 19 PRC SAM sites. If you have no or few SAM activity you should select "Heavy Air Defence" in the Single Mission selection screen. The other reason for few SAM activity is, that you fly in a year that is outside of the service time of SAM systems.

There are 3 carrier stations. One in the north, one in the middle of Formosa Strait, near Makung and the third carrier station is south west of Taiwan. All carrier station have one carrier, one cargoship and some destroyers as escord vessels. If you has other ships than the WOE standard you can included them easiely in the carrier groups.

I have version 1.0, and there are no carrier stations anywhere in the terrain, until I added them. Is there a higher version out there?
