  1. Guess you're going to love this - New tiles (mix of Caporetto, old Flanders from Edward, etc.) - More tiles - Corrected locations of the towns, cities, etc. - Frontline +/- 1917 ..stay tuned, will take ages!!
  2. New Flanders

    Yes, slow but steady progress...sorry but currently holiday time. - Coastline finished, major rivers outlined - Major cities 'marked' on the German side - without Holland - Majority of tiles done - but still missing: railroad tracks, train stations, special tiles (like landmarks, special features, etc.) rgds gt

  5. View File Vosges Vosges Terrain (inkl. 1916 campaign) 1.2 Re-worked Vosges terrain V2.0 ***************************** New: V2.0 - Including winter season INTRODUCTION The Vosges Front is a mountainous area ranging from the Donon in the north and the Grand Ballon in the south. The old border between the German Empire and France from 1871 to 1918, now in Alsace and the Lorraine, was the only area of the Western Front to see mountain fighting during the Great War With transportation infrastructure and technology, impacts on the landscape and strategic challenges related to climate and geographic constraints, the Vosges mountains were the scene of numerous battlefields. DETAILS - This version of the Vosges front is 'based' on the work of Stephen1918 and Gepard. But virtually everything was modified (height-map to a massive degree, towns, front line, rivers, etc.) - Existing versions of this map will NOT be overwritten with this version, since the folder is named 'wwiVosges'. - You'll find a new map within FE called 'Vosges, France'. - I've tried to include as much as possible into the terrain folder. This means certain object were made 'static'. - Certain targets are at the very edge of the terrain. This might cause certain issues when flying into the virtual 'wall', e.g. edge of the map. - To minimize the repetitive feeling of flying over tiles I've added a lot of green fields (fields without trees). - The included campaign is just a small one with the possibility to fly recon and bombing missions (France/Germany). NEW STUFF - Train lines and trainstations (major cities and minor towns) - 'Waterfalls' and shipping locks - Small airfields and very large airfields - Zeppelin airfield - A rather busy frontline (make sure you've the needed objects) - Switzerland as neutral country, altough it doesn't work 100% but that's an issue based on the game-engine. Including two Swiss airfields and a border with various gates, flags, bunkers, etc. INCLUDED - Vosges terrain/front WW1 (incl. two seasons) - Ground objects - German/French reconnaissance campaign set in 1916 FAQs Q: Is it based on the already existing 'Vogesen' map? A: Yes, but actually only as a basis. Everything was changed/adapted (heightmap, tilemap, targets, etc.). Q: Does it include more than one season? A: No, currently not. Q: Is the frontline correct? A: Yes as good as it gets, representing late 1916/early 1917 with certain omissions. Q: Are all the named towns and cities correct (placement and naming)? A: Yes as good as it gets. French denominations and German denominations. INSTALLATION 1. Make a backup copy of your First Eagles folder (just in case) 2. Extract the file into a temporary folder (like c:\temp\) 3. Copy all the relevant folders into the respective First Eagles game folders (example: c:\temp\Vosges\Terrain\Vosges into your c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Terrain folder) PREREQUISITES - FE Gold (might work also with FE2, sorry guys don't know), with the latest patch - Aircraft for the included campaign: CaudronG4 RumplerC1 Nieuport10 Nieuport11 Nieuport12 Voisin3_150 Voisin5 AlbatrosC3 AviatikC2 FokkerEIIIa FokkerD2 AviatikC2 Dfwci Walfisch LloydC2 CREDITS As usual I want to say thank you to all guys who helped me to create the Vosges terrain: TK, Jan Tuma, Stephen1918 (for the improved Vogesen version from Gepard), Geezer (great ground objects), ojcar, Gepard (for the initial Vogesen version), Heck, geo, quack74, Edward, A-Team (airplanes not included), Guitarclassic55 (for the wonderful menu) and a lot of others. Of course Gerwin's TFD Tool was instrumental in the making of this terrain. Sorry if I've forgotten someone. Please contact me if you want to be named at this place. Thanks for files, suggestions, testing, bug findings etc. DISCLAIMER The Vosges terrain is freeware. You are free to modify and share it, BUT Commercial use is prohibited.

  6. View File Caporetto V2 (Terrain & Campaign) Caporetto Terrain WW1 V2.0 ******************************* INTRODUCTION The Italian Front during WW1 refers to a series of battles fought between 1915 and 1918 in northern Italy between the armies of Austria-Hungary and Germany against Italy. Italy hoped that by joining the countries of the Triple Entente against the Central Powers it would gain Cisalpine Tyrol (today's provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol), the Austrian Littoral, northern Dalmatia and some areas of western Carniola. Italy had hoped to begin the war with a surprise offensive intended to move quickly and capture several Austrian cities. Well, the war soon bogged down into trench warfare similar to the Western Front fought in France. The included terrain represents the situation around September/October 1917, just before the battle of Caporetto. The Battle of Caporetto (also known as the Twelfth Battle of the Isonzo, the Battle of Kobarid or the Battle of Karfreit) was the greatest defeat in Italian military history. The battle was fought between the Entente and the Central Powers and took place from 24 October to 19 November 1917, near the town of Kobarid (now in north-western Slovenia, then part of the Austrian Littoral). The battle was named after the Italian name of the town (also known as Karfreit in German). Austro-Hungarian forces, reinforced by German units, were able to break into the Italian front line and rout the Italian forces opposing them. The battle was a demonstration of the effectiveness of the use of stormtroopers and the infiltration tactics developed in part by Oskar von Hutier. The use of poison gas by the Germans also played a key role in the collapse of the Italian Second Army. INCLUDED - Italian terrain/front WW1, situaton around summer/late summer 1917 - 544 unique tiles - 10798 targets and 589 target areas - Terrain represents the most important battlegrounds on the Italian front (Monfalcone, Mt. Hermada, Doberdo and Doberdo Lake, Mt. Fajiti Hrib, Gorizia, Mt. Sabotino, Bainsizza plateau, Caporetto, Mt. Krn, Mt. Tre Cime, Mt. Cristallo, Mt. Lagazuoi, Mt. Col di Lana, Mt. Marmolada, Mt. Ortigara, Mt. Pasubio...and many other historical places) - Needed ground objects are also included - Important mountains where done via satellite images (the tiles), like Marmolada, Mount Krn, Monte Cristallo, etc. all unique - All historical fortifications are included (mountain bunkers, etc.) and locations/naming correct (as good as it gets) - Major railroad lines included - Port of Triest acts as port of Pola with all the major Austro-Hungarian Dreadnoughts stationed there - Flying boat stations included with stationary Lohners and Macchi aircrafts PREREQUISITES - FE Gold or FE2 - Very strong PC and GPU INSTALLATION 1. PRELIMINARY WORK 1.1 Extract file into a temporary folder like 'c:\temp' 1.2 You'll find a new folder called 'caporettoV20' within 'c:\temp' 1.3 For the campaign to work properly you'll need the following aircraft (you'll find them at the usual places) --- AlbatrosC3 --- AlbatrosD3OAW --- AviatikC2 --- AviatikD1 --- Ca3 --- Dfwci --- Hanriot_HD1_CAM --- Hansa_BrandenburgDI --- LloydC2 --- Nieuport12 --- Nieuport17 --- oefD3_ba53a --- oefD3_ba153a --- oefD3_ba253 --- PhoenixD2a --- PomilioPE --- RumplerC1 --- SAMLS2 --- SP3 --- SPAD7_150 --- SPAD7_180 --- SPAD13 --- SVA5 2. TERRAIN INSTALLATION 2.1 FIRST EAGLES 2 - This terrain uses the stock wwiCambrai.CAT file, You must have the "wwiCambrai" terrain from First Eagles for the wwiCaporetto terrain to work properly. - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS Folder - create the folder 'terrains' within if not already there - Move the 'wwiCaporetto' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Terrain\wwiCaporetto') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\terrains\', e.g. your MODS Folder - Move the folders within 'GroundObject' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\GroundObject') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\Objects\GroundObjects', e.g. your MODS Folder 2.2 FIRST EAGLES GOLD - This terrain uses the stock wwiCambrai.CAT file, You must have the "wwiCambrai" terrain from First Eagles for the wwiCaporetto terrain to work properly. - Move the 'wwiCaporetto' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Terrain\wwiCaporetto') into your FirstEagles installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Terrain') - Move the folders within 'GroundObject' from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\GroundObject') into your FirstEagles installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Objects\GroundObject') - If you've already my previous Italian WWI terrain, then you probably don't need these objects. In any case if asked to 'owerwrite', click NO. 3. CAMPAIGN INSTALLATION 3.1 FIRST EAGLES 2 - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS folder - create the folder 'Campaigns' within if not already there - Move the 'wwiCaporetto01' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Campaings') to C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\Campaigns\', e.g. your MODS Folder - Move the files (bmp's) from your your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Menu') to your FirstEagles2 installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles2\Menu') Aircraft Skins - All needed aircraft skins are included. Look for them into your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\Aircraft') add them like any other FE2 aircraft skins. You'll already have the majority probably. 3.2 FIRST EAGLES GOLD - Move the 'wwiCaporetto01' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Campaings') into your FirstEagles installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Campaigns') - Move the files (bmp's) from your your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Menu') into your FirstEagles installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Menu') Aircraft Skins - All needed aircraft skins are included.

EXTRAS - You'll find several ZIP files within the temporary 'Extras' folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Extras') Description: Terrain_wwiCaporettoFolder_oldCarst.zip - I've repainted the carst region tiles to make them look more like limestone in this new version. If you like more the previous look, then just extract this file and overwrite the tiles within the wwiCaporetto folder. Terrain_wwiCaporettoFolder_oldIsonzo_trench_dry.zip - I've added wet fields and water filled shell holes in this new version. If you like more the previous look, then just extract this file and overwrite the tiles within the wwiCaporetto folder. MenuFolder_Music_MainScreen.zip - If you like a bit more exciting musing in the main menue. Just drop this file into your 'Menue' folder. PilotDataFolder_Additional_PilotImages.zip - These are all the portraits of all aces on the Italian front during 1915-1918. Quite a lot of work went into this. If you like a more historical approach then use these and drop them into your 'PilotData' folder.

    To all of those that follow this topic.....help is needed pls. I'm looking for LOD's for the terrain, e.g. static ones. I've searched here in the download sections and within the various terrains...couldn't find something suitable - Terraced houses, esp. for south England - Dover Castle - Heavy mortars. I know we have field guns...how about mortars? - Angled harbor walls (like the one in Dover) If you've something I would be most grateful. I know it's a bit early in the development stage...but who knows thx gt
  15. New Flanders

    Yes seaplane bases are a real option/possibility In the meantime...added little lakes and 'wet' fields (shimmering in the distance)
