Recycling elements in other terrains

Recommended Posts

In a full merged install, could you get buildings from other titles in the Desert terrain to make it more rich as an environment?

 

Like the Berlin TV tower, the french style buildings around the Paul Doumer bridge in Hanoi, the industrial buildings, et cetera, being placed in the Desert terrain? Would it only take a the correct reference in INIs, or extracting and placing it in the appropiate folder, either being targetable in Strike missions or not?

 

If i can get to learn enough about terrain editing, i would like to fill Desert with those items a bit. Desert is a bit light of stuff, and it would be a great improvement to include factories near cities, the presidential palace from Israel as the evil guy lair, or a TV tower in the modern capital of Dhimar. Maybe even a couple of bridges in the border mirroring cities area.

Sure.

But you have to copy the specific files (textures+inis) into the terrain folder you would

like to implement them. Add them to the types.ini and place them.

bmps, tgas, lods (which are no longer accessable) MUST be in the destination terrain folder, IF said "additonal" terrains does NOT reference the original (3W) terrain cat where said items reside.

But yes, if one knows the stock terrain cats inside and out (like someone I could name) it WAS doable at a time

 

to be honest, the Desert terrain only exists are a 'testing ground' for objects ...it's truely a worthless piece of (un)real estate

Or you could use Piecemeals very excellent Desert v1.3 which is heavily populated and contains most of the items you want. As Soulfreak says if you want to put your own spin your own version of desert you can copy and paste some of target enteries such as piecemeals border posts etc and checkout the types enteries to see if you have every thing you need or would like to change to some other ground object. There are a lot of bits and pieces in other terrains you can borrow along with the type enteries.There are some odds and ends

in the SF1 downloads that you can probably use too.
