  1. View File Socotra terrain Socotra 1.0 ***************************************************** This terrain is written for SF2NA and SF2 Israel. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I. Short description: Socotra is a relativly big island on the shores of the Horn of Africa. It belongs to Yemen. Socotra is an ideal position to control all shipping lines between the Mediterranian Sea and the Indian Ocean. The power who controls Socotra can easily block the oil support from the Gulf to Western Europe. Socotra is the cork in the bottle neck, like Djibouti, the Suez Canal or Gibraltar. From mid 1960th to the fall of the Soviet Union, the soviets had an airbase on Socotra. In the 1980th on the base one regiment (squadron) of Su-24 bombers was active on Socotra. This terrain is made for a scenario that the Americans must defeat the soviet forces on Socotra island. They had to operate from carrier positions in the Gulf of Aden. For all guys who love to fly Air Force planes i made a temporary american airfield in Somalia. In the timeframe, where the soviets have no own carriers the single missions are focused on Socotra island. When the soviets field carriers the terrain is mostly focused on carrier vs carrier battles. So, if you prefer carrier vs ground battles you must choose missions before 1976. After that date you will have to fight Kiev carrier battle groups. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ II. INSTALLATION: To run this terrain you need SF2NorthAtlantic and SF2 Israel or SF2 Europe. Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2XXXX Thats it. If you have SF2Israel installed you must do nothing more.

  3. View File Battle of Britain 2 Terrain Operation Seelöwe Battle of Britain 2 Terrain Operation Seelöwe ***************************************************** This mod is made for SF2E. ---------------------------------------------------------- I. Battle of Britain 2 terrain Operation Seelöwe is a complete rework of my Battle of Britain terrain from 2009. It is completly new tiled, to give it a much better look. Each tile has now a size of 1024x1024 pixel, what is 4 times higher than in the old terrain. The terrain is made with "Operation Seelöwe" in mind. This operation was a german military plan from 1940 to land with strong forces on english soil. This operation was planed in a timeframe from summer till early autumn 1940. Thatswhy i made no seasoned tileset. To simulate the ground battles after the german invasion i set some german beachheads on the map, so that now CAS missions can be flown. The area of Londow along the river Themse is new tiled by using satellite images. To hold the frame rate of the game as high as possible, i made the rivertiles not as tga files, but as ordinary jpg files. Thatswhy you will not find waves and reflexions on the river Themse and the most other rivers in this terrain. The City of London is populated with house blocks. So is is destroyable by bomb raids. The airfields in Britain are made by using old air footages from WW2. The design of the german bases is fiction. I was not able to find air footages from 1940 for this airfields. Please make sure, that your bombers have the setting MinBaseSize=MEDIUM in their data.ini of the plane. Otherwise the bombers will also use fighter bases. At the moment Battle of Britain 2 terrain contains 312 target areas. Some target areas are named PQsomething. PQ comes from the german word "Planquadrat", which is in english "grid". I decided to use the term PQ to simulate german planningmaps. The terrain comes with two new nations. First the Luftwaffe of the Third Reich and the fictionary Deutsche Luftstreitkräfte of the Republic of Germany. Both nations have own insiginas, which you can select for single missions. The swastika i made only in a "camouflaged" version, because in Germany it is not allowed to handle this symbol in a game. I have also moded the missioncontrol.ini file. Now the planes are closer to their base when they start a landing approach. The terrain comes with 3 campaigns. No.1 is Operation Seelöwe, the german invasion in Britain in late summer 1940 No.2 is the so called Nonstop Offensive, the british air strikes over the Channel in 1941 No.3 is Operation Seelöwe in 1956 with a fiction Republic of Germany as invader. For the campaigns you need following planes: BF109E-4 by RussoUK https://combatace.com/files/file/14035-bf109e-47z/ Ju-88A-1 by Veltro2k https://combatace.com/files/file/15445-junkers-ju-88-a1/ Do-17P by Veltro2k https://combatace.com/files/file/15196-dornier-do-17p/ Spitfire Mk.1 by TMF https://combatace.com/files/file/13510-sf2-ww2-spitfire-mk1a-by-mod-mafiatmf/ Hurricane IA by Raven https://combatace.com/files/file/13646-sf2-ww2-hawker-hurricane-ia-etobob-by-raven/ WW2 RAF Bombers pack by Wrench https://combatace.com/files/file/13795-sf2-ww2-raf-bombers-pak/ For the german 1956 campaign you need a MiG-17 cockpit The best is made by Stary https://combatace.com/files/file/12684-mig-15-mig-15-bis-mig-17-cockpit/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- II. CREDITS: While making Battle of Britain 2 terrain i used a lot of files made by other modders. Thanks for this files! The tileset is basing on Jan Tumas tileset for First Eagles The most tod files are made by me, but i also used files made by Stary. The white cliffs objects are made by GKABS. The airfield objects are made by Geezer. Some hangars are taken from AirfieldDevKit_v1.1 The Robinson hangars are made by RussoUK2004 The industrial factories are made by Geezer. The fortification objects are made by Geezer. The cargoships which you find in London Docks are made by Nils 'Julhelm' Dücker I hope that have nobody forgotten. ---------------------------------------------------------- III.

  5. Firstly, thanks for your help throughout the last days, I asked way too much questions. So, I am sorry for that lol, just trying to learn. Now, I wonder if there a toturial for making maps as i Didn't find anything in the knowledge base or maybe I missed something, but I looked there many times. I was planning to learn making some tanks or ships/carrier and jets, but I found everything covered even fantasy planes are here. Thanks for that too lol. I found many maps here, but they haven't covered everything yet and from that I understand that they must be taking a huge load of time and they seems to be the hardest. However, if anyone has any link/file for any tutorial for maps making. I would appreciate it. I used to make some maps and mod other games, but I am not really familiar with this game files except ini files as they are pretty simple, but I try to learn lol.
  6. Hello. I have just reinstalled the SF2 and put all addons I have already used. It is all working. However, after I downloaded new terrains (Iraq03 and Libya), my SF2 cannot recognize these maps in Mission Map sections. However, other maps I have used before work. What is the solution, please?
  7. 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.

    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.

  9. With the all that's transpired in Venezuela over the past few months and the arrival of roughly 100 soldiers from the Russian Federation this week, this South American country has grabbed even more of my attention. I was always under the impression that they had an unusual collection of aircraft and were aware that even my countries' RCAF sold them 2nd hand CF-5As at one point. That said, I was surprised to find that their current air force is comprised of Sukhoi Su-30Ms (35) and F-16As (16.) That leads me to think a war of air supremacy between them and any likely adversaries, probably wouldn't be a stowing-fighters-in-revetments engagement that we've seen in some recent Middle East wars. They also have Mil Mi-17 (10) and Eurocopter Cougar (6) helos and a Boeing 707 tanker. All the aircraft are currently available for SF2 with the exception of the Cougar helo and I didn't check for the 707. Correct me if I'm wrong in my assumption though, that the Mi-17 is more or less the same helo as the Mi-8M which has already been modded? Unfortunately the terrain doesn't exist - closest to the theater is Central America and coastal Ecuador. Knowing nothing about how terrains are created for this game, I'm imagining a country the size of Venezuela (roughly 900-800 miles if your place a rectangle around it) with 3 significant mountain ranges, some deep basins and highly varied coastline would be one heckuva challenge. Not to mention that some part of Brazil or Columbia containing air bases would have to be created too. Without any skill to make it happen, I'll just dream about it. ;) I'm curious though if any other fans of this game think Venezuela would be an interesting theater to run some SF2 missions in? [Edit] I hope I'm not coming across as callous or insensitive, with suggesting a theater in which countless civilians are currently suffering. Like the handful of other conflicts raging around the globe, hardly a day goes by where I don't thing about those people - especially the children. But maybe it isn't cool to consider gaming in a theater where events are currently unfolding?

Short description: 2013, five years ago i decided to start work on a Korea terrain, especially for Korea War. As usual for me i wanted to creat a more or less 100% scaled terrain, in contrast to the 66% scales which the TerrainEditor is usually made for us. It was a slow progress work. Now, five years later, i release the first version of Korea MiG-Alley terrain. Korea MiG-Alley terrain does not cover entire korean peninsula. It is focused on the so called MiG-Alley. The MiG-Alley was an area in north west Korea which was controlled and patroled by MiG-15 planes, which were based on airfields in China. The chinese airbases were out of "reach" for the UN Air Forces. Out of reach meant, it was not allowed to bomb or straff this bases. MiG-Alley terrain is made for simulating the air warfare of the Air Forces, not the Navy, during the Korea War from 1949 to 1953. The terrains timeframe is set from 1949 to 1955. Active airfields you will find in China and in South Korea. Airfields in North Korea are in building stage, what means they cant be used by the red side. But they are targets for the blue guys. You will find a lot of ground targets in the MiG-Alley. Bridges, factories, railway stations etc. All are heavily defended by Flak artillery. You will find some ship traffic along the west coast and some truck convois in the MiG-Alley. There are also targets of opportunities, like fuel depots consists of fuel barrels. If you find one, bomb it! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ II. INSTALLATION: Unzip all files into your saved game mod folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2 .

Short description: This terrain covers the Kurils islands, a small group of islands which were conquered by the soviets in September 1945 from Japan. There is also a small part of the japanese island of Hokkaido. This terrain is made for carrier ops in primary. You may fly ground based planes too. There are two small japanese airfields and 3 soviet airfields. The soviets deployed an aray of SAM sites over the islands of Kunashir and Iturup. To run this terrain you need SF2NA and one of these: SF2I or SF2E. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ II. INSTALLATION: Unzip all files into your saved game folder ...ThirdWire\StrikeFighters2NorthAtlantic /terrain folder. Because IcelandNA terrain does not include all neccessary objects to run this terrain properly you need to link it to an other terrains CAT file. From stock the terrain is prepared to link with SF2 Israel If you dont have SF2I you must open the file kurilen.ini with Windows notepad editor. Look for the lines: CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat //CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat //CatFile=..\VIETNAMSEA\VietnamSEA.cat //CatFile=..\Desert\Desert.cat Add // in front of CatFile=..\IsraelME\IsraelME.cat to switch ot off. Then remove // at one of the other lines. Which you should remove depends on which SF2 game you still have installed side by side with SF2 North Atlantic. Save it. Thats it. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ III. Credits. The TOD's, what means the trees and autogenerated houses on the map, are mostly taken from various tilesets made by Stary. The SAM protection walls are taken from Pureblues AirfieldDevKit. They were originaly made by Sundowner. The basic files for the taxiways, parking areas and quais are made by ErikGen. I hope i have not forgotten someone. . ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ IV. This Terrain is Freeware. Commercial use is not allowed. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ V. For remarks, comments, bugs, etc please use CombatAce forum or send me a PM. Hope you enjoy it.

  16. View File DEUCES Euro Desert Terrain Am not sure who created this mod of the desert terrain using Euro Airwar textures other than 'Dueces' but here it is. I call it in a couple missions uploaded in my F-4S_F-4N pack to be uploaded today barring tech difficulties. I modded the 'nations' file, BTW.

  18. Hi there, In one occasion I was en route to a target area named like XYZ Temple (yeah, me too. sounds nonsense right) in Kamchatka terrain mod by Baltika and updated by Wrench (further with Stary's detail 250m mesh...) When I was closing in at the target, there was an unexpected EW Radar installation and all a sudden, jumped by the sightings... see the image below Is that one of the easter eggs for the terrain and if that's true, is there any background info./ local tradition things related to it ??
  19. Hi everybody i have a question: How i can use iceland terrain tiles in vietnam terrain?specially the sea tiles?
  20. I had an off the wall idea a couple of weeks ago. What does everyone think about a Death Star terrain map for SF2? I am thinking a relatively level terrain with various rectangular, circular, and what not geometric patterns for an artificial DEM file plus custom tiles to representing the building like surface structure of the Death Star with a canyon trench running through the middle of it to a target area with the primary target exhaust port below a main port. Create a couple of different turrets for the surface and tower mounted turbo lasers plus some low angle pedestal mounted cannons. I have this image in my mind of F-111's replacing the Y-Wings in the trench run and being able to prove if Wedge was right or not with his "...impossible, even for a computer." remark. Anyone with terrain making experience willing to weigh in on this idea?
  21. Guess what
  22. Hey CA! I have always had trouble with the desert 4 terrain... It's an awesome place to play with all the great airplanes available here on CA but I've always had a lot of crashes and other issues on this particular terrain... While searching for a fix for this issue I found a replacement for the first few entries in the Desert4_Data.ini that were buried wayy back in 2014 forums... All credit goes to Dave for this fix... Just figured i would share it in case anyone else was having this issue! just copy this and replace whats in your desert 4 data ini!

  23. Hey all! I have been messing around with wrenches New Guinea terrain...Im not a huge fan of the Stock TW Vietnam tiles so ive been trying to find a tileset that works...but theres always a hole in the tiles around airbases and small cities with a harbor... Ive tried Stary's Solomons and Green Hell 3 tiles to no avail any ideas?
  24. So I was playing around with the Iranian F-4's on their home turf the Iran/Iraq terrain... and I kept getting HUGE drops in framerates when selecting and or firing any PGM's (LGB's on the F-4D and AGM-65B's on F-4E's) I tried flying an american F-4 with the exact same result, Im surprised there wasnt as CTD. I tried lots of variations of thing but keep getting the same result so i have narrowed the issue down to it being something in the IR terrain... I have never seen this happen on any other terrain i even tried redownloading the IR terrain to no avail... anyone have any ideas?
  25. ​Hey! I saw in a WIP thread awhile ago that there was a South African terrain in the works.... is that still going? Cause I would love to fly in a border war scenario considering I am south African! Haha anyone have any info on that?
