I tried to make water tiles for the muddy part of the Rio de la Plata Bay. But i'm not satisfied. In game it looks rather like desert than as muddy water.

The screenshot shows in foreground the new water tile, in the middle the blue watertiles, which i have used in the terrain before. And in the background you see the tiles of Buenos Aires.

Not too bad. Should be darker and more desaturated.

Here is quick mock up in case it's helpful and I can always tweak it...maybe make it more murky and less clear? 

You know the deal Gep, PM me as needed.

A mid term between yours and Gepard should be the best.

Punto Indio, next development step: placing the parked aircrafts. So it looks now:

I repainted the village houses which are connected with the terrain tiles.

I have done it yesterday evening.

Then i have colored the roofs of some stock buildings, which i use to build the airbases. So it looks now:

Some days ago i found the old Leopard 2A1 made by Kesselbrut on my HD. I thought, why not using this old LOD to make a Leo 2A4, which we will see in the Ukraine in some weeks. So i gave it an other skin. So it looks:

img00187.thumb.JPG.401dc2349b27b432614803a3ebd5e2ae.JPG

But i was not satisfied. Thatswhy today i made an other skin:

img00191.thumb.JPG.892ba6e0972e8762b86c080ecd039646.JPG

img00192.thumb.JPG.46a08ead2bd40b2db2477648ee6636f5.JPG

It's astonishing what a skin can do for such a very simple LOD.

I also reworked the data.ini. I changed the armour values to make them more accurate. For this i divided the hull into two parts, because in a real tank the upper frontal armour plate has a different thickness than the lower armour plate. For the Leo 2 A4 i gave the upper plate 300 mm steele and the lower plate 200 mm. Then i made similar changes for the russian T-72B and the ukrainian T-72M1.

I will test this panzer pack for the Ukraine for some days and then i will release them.

And tomorrow i will go back to Rio de la Plata Bay terrain and will start to build the argentinan air base Mar del Plata.

As promised Basa Aerea Mar del Plata.

Its a first attempt. I'm not happy with the terminal building. It is to big and the shape is wrong. I will check my folders to find a better fitting building.

And dont worry about wrong parked planes. This comes later.

Basa Aerea Mar del Plata second attempt with an other terminal building, which is closer to reality.

Very impressive!!!!! Could you make the border of airbase tile more subtle like the example I did below? It´s a crude photoshopped image just to show what I mean.

Would be difficult. It would require a complete new tile. This is the best, i can offer at the moment.
