Midway Terrain v 1.0 by Gepard

Recommended Posts

MIDWAY TERRAIN
=====================

I.
Midway terrain is made for "Strike Fighters Project 1" SFP1.

You can use it in Wings over Vietnam and Wings over Europe too.
Wings over Israel can handle this terrain too, but the flight modells of prop driven planes shows anomalies in WOI.

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

II.
Midway terrain covers a part of the Central Pacific Ocean with the atolls of Kure and Midway.
It is the place were in 1942 a big Air-Sea-Battle was fought between the Imperial Japanese Navy and the US Navy. The japanese Navy was superior in numbers of ships, but the US side had some major advantages. No.1, the japanese communication code was broken, so that the US Navy commanders were able to read the enemy commands. No.2, the US had radar coverage, so that enemy surprise attacks were nearly impossible. No.3, the US had the superior number of airplanes which were deciding during the battle.
The battle was fought as a pure air to sea combat. No single gunfire exchange between naval vessels took place.
The result was that the japanese Navy lost 4 carriers and the US Navy lost 1 carrier. It was a impressive victory for the USA in Pacifice war theater. You can compare it with the Battle of Moscow on the Eastern Front or the first british victories in North Africa.


Midway Terrain following target areas
this are

Kure Atoll (Neutral airbase)
Eastern Island (Midway AB USMC)
Sand Island (Midway USMC)

ship formations
Japan
+Midway Occupation Force
+Midway Support Force
+Second Fleet Main Force ( 1 small carrier)
+First Fleet Main Force (1 small carrier)
+First Fleet Carrier Strike Force ( 4 carriers)

USN
+TF-16 (2 carrier)
+TF-17 (1 carrier)

*********************************************
III Known problems

Up today it is impossible to take off and land from carriers while using single missions which are generated by random single mission screen.
Thatswhy i added invisible airfields for taking off and landing in the centre of carrier formations. You will also start from the sea. This is not satisfying. Thatswhy it is the best to start the mission in the air to overcome this problem.

PS

Q: How i can get Midway Terrain running in WOV, WOI or WOE

A:
1. Open file Midway.ini
2. Look for line CatFile=..\Desert\Desert.cat
3. Replace this line with:
for WOV: CatFile=..\VietnamSEA\VietnamSEA.cat
for WOI: CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat
for WOE: CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat

I didn't know this terrain a remake?


 

But didn't you remake several existing terrains yourself. Me thinks Israel, BoB, and ..., and ..., GERMANY! :blink:

 

And did TK, remake your Israel terrain. Dunno?

 

In fact Gephard, you might be the greatest terrain re-maker of ALL TIME.  :biggrin:

 

And why did you remake terrains. To make them better? OIC. :blink:

Who cares if the terrain is a remake. STWA can remake every terrain in out download section if he wants. Its not for ANYONE to say anything. Attitudes like yours stifle creativity. If he wants to  have biplane on Iwo Jima, SO WHAT. It is not for anyone to say. Why? Because it defeats the purpose of this open source sim. While TK has moved on, I would think, that anyone doing anything for the sim would be a good thing. So please leave it be.

Dave, if he would use the search function first, before start a new project, then he would find, that something is already available. If he find, the existing terrain could be better, and he wants to make a new one, then it is okay. But only if he dont use the same name as the already existing terrain. Its confusing to have files with the same designation. If he would call it "Midway made by STWA" or "Battle of Britain 1960 of STWA" then it would be okay. But not with the same names.

And it is also not okay, if he delete his first post here and write something complete different instead. This is fudge.

Gephard,

 

So please do not take offense, but I would like to make a few points here.

 

1. This Midway terrain that I have made resides on my PC at my home in Arizona. It resides no where else on Earth. So considering that fact, is it OK with you if I name the terrain whatever I want. Actually the name of the terrain on my PC is Midway CP.

 

2. Me thinks US Copyright law forbids the copyright of a title. Like a book or movie. Perhaps this law applies to a terrain name as well. :blink:

 

3. I like to make terrains as part of this hobby. It really doesn't matter to me if a similar terrain exists or not. I just like to make them.

 

4. I did not create this topic in this forum, it was moved here ... by someone. Did you move it here?

 

5. It is impossible for an unprivileged user (like moi) to delete the first post in a topic.

First, spell my name correct.

 

Second, the signature under the first post shows, that you has edited it 4 days after my first reply.

 

 

 

Edited by Stwa, 29 December 2014 - 04:54:27 AM.

 

And you has changed it completly. You has removed all screenshots and descriptions of your terrain and included the readme of my Midway terrain from 2009.

 

Third. Using big letters in a forum means shouting.

As the original poster, I get to decide the topic. And that is what I have done. The topic is ... Midway Terrain v 1.0 by Gephard

 

And the topic currently resides in the forum... Sci Fi, Anime, What If

 

So, I will ask you one more time ... Did You move this topic into this forum?

 

Please be aware, that when I use big letters ... I am NOT shouting!

 

And everyone ... Please, lets get back on topic! ...

 

So, do you need some help locating some Anime hangar screens for your terrain mod?

WRONG!

 

That edit was performed to make sure your name was spelled correctly in the topic title!

 

So, did you move this topic to this forum?  DO YOU CONFESS?  :aggressive:

Gepard once again if he wants to name it Midway, then so be it. I understand what you are trying to say but it wasn't necessary. Just let him do his thing.

No. Its not my job. In this forum it is yours.

And it seems to be, that you accept behavior like these:

In my eyes statements like these are a personal affront.

 

Perhaps its time for me to leave this forum.

Well if everyone had just let him be, and not care that there is already a Midway terrain etc, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. STWA is upset because

A. someone moved his topic. 

B. kept bringing up that this terrain existed. 

when all he is doing is modding. So I can understand his situation. 

 

So anyway, this topic is done.
