Just open any terrain_types.ini and search for TargetType=TOWER

tower1 and tower2 are include in all stock cats I think.

Cheers guys ...sorted thnx

also Im assuming that the view from tower is what I need to look at to edit camera view for tower,in the viewlist.ini ,there isnt a seperate ini that I can see.?

ahh I can see that if I add a new tower I can set it as default over the stock one.and change the one game looks for in towerview F11

i forgot the mention, the stock SFP objects image shows the 'footprint' in meters. IIRC, Polack generated that image. I, unfortunatley, can't remember who did the WoV one (and it dosen't have all the VNSEA newer objects, just the more important ones)

Russ check out Wrench´s topic here "@ Soulfreak"

I had the similar question a few days ago! :grin:

 

BTW, couldn´t we put some Buildings etc. together, for more differences in Terrain population?

The airfield development kit is nice, but only Hangars and those Stuff...

it all depends on how much time one wishes to spend on building/adding stuff. You should see the dispersal area I built for Bandar Abbas Int'l ..... that was eye crosser!!

I think ive sorted it,the offset values for the camera in tower is the co-ord from the objscts centre at gound level it seems.So ive found the camera view point in 3ds max and applied to the tower viewlist entry and it works,you now look from the new tower in F11 mode,now to set the camera to have yaw and pitch as per cockpit views etc etc.
