Rio de la Plata terrain
Gepard, in Thirdwire: Strike Fighters 2 Series - File Announcements
Regularly my terrain editor comes across this coastal situation for which the standard EAW tile set has no solution. It concerns a narrow passage between two land masses. Ofcourse you can simply widen the passage and use two corner tiles but I think this is sometimes more elegant when there's a large number of this situation, like for instance with a large number of islands close together. I think it serves a few more purposes so here's an example of the tile I use in 2 rotational states.
Rio de la Plata terrain version 1.3
This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2E or SF2I.
I. Short description:
This terrain covers the Bay of the river Rio de la Plata. South of this bay we find Argentina, north of it Urugay and Brazil. East of it is the Atlantic Ocean.
The timeframe of the terrain is from 1980 to 2020.
It is made as a NavalMap with carrier vs carrier operations in mind.
The scenario is, that in 1982, the Royal Navy answered the argentinian invasion on the Falkland islands with sending a Naval Task Force toward Buenos Aires and landing troops on the shores of Argentina.
Thatswhy you find a big british beachhead on the map.
You can fly following missions for the British and their allies, the Brazilians:
For the Argentinians you can fly this missions:
New in vesion 1.2:
- number of target area increased from 37 to 47
- all target areas are now fitted with objects. Factories, warehouses, commbuilding etc.
- Airbase Tandil moved 75 km westward. It is not yet at the correct position. I fear, that if the base is placed at the correct position, the AI would not use it, because it is to far in the west.
- At the former position of Tandil Airbase i placed a temporary aifield.
- I added the river Rio Paradana and the neigbour rivers.
- I relocated Montevideo and the Montevideo Airport. The airport is completly new made.
- I reworked all rivermouth tiles, enlarged them to 1024x1024 pixel size.
New in version 1.3
- number of targetareas increades to 82
- a lot of new factory target areas for Argentina
- included uruguayan airbases
- included static Cessna for airfield "population
- included some goodies
To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic and SF2 Israel or SF2 Europe.
Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2XXXX
If you have SF2Europe installed you must do nothing more.
If you miss SF2E and have SF2Israel you must open file
with Notepad editor and look for the lines:
change the entry into:
save the file
I have made a new mainscreen and included a new mainscreensound. Check it out and if you like it then copy the folder Menu to your SF2 mod installation
If you own the TK's DLC28 and SF2Israel, you can use the MirageIIIEA and MirageIIIEBR, which you also find in the goodies folder. Simply copy to your objects folder.
Tileset is basing on Starys Green Hell 3.0 tileset. I converted it to jpg format and
merged the 512x512 tiles to 1024x1024 pixel tiles.
