Hello to all those who have followed the progress of my South Vietnam map WIP both here and at SAS.

The map has been a long on going project that I've now decided to finally bring to a conclusion with this last download.

Due to the nature of the project information was always difficult to find for the time period it was aimed at and continues to be so, unless further detailed information appears for the airfields added to the map so far then essentially the map is now finished as I've done what I set out to do.

I'd just like to take this oportunity to say thank you very much to all those who have contributed to the project in any way either with information or with adding detail, without the help of the IL-2 community the map may never have got this far.

I will be forever gratefull to Anatoli for the tremendous contribution he has made to this map, his detailing has been a constant source of encouragement and inspiration. Thank you very much Anatoli for the tremendous amount of work you have put into this project.

Also to Dixiecapt who put a tremendous amount of effort into detailing the city of Hue, he has my sincerest thanks for this outstanding contribution to project.

I mustn't forget our texture Master Bombsaway who did so much to help me get the look of the map just right, thank you very much Mark it is much appreciated.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. Big Grin
O :OO Very cool looks GREAT am sure many will enjoy this map Smile
Thank you. Big Grin



Hello all, Uufflakke at SAS has been working on some tree files for the last week or so specially for this map, they alter both the wood effect and the random trees.

I for one think they look outstanding and send my sincerest thanks to Uufflakke for the time and effort he has put into these, I'm sure you will also be as impressed as I was with the effect.

The link to the tree files is now in the first post with the map link. :wink:

Here are some images:

I haven't added these to the map update as I feel users of the map should decide if they want to add them or not, altough I can't imagine anyone wouldn't. :wink:

A comparison of the old and new:

The new effect is much darker and I think better reflects jungle trees than the original files.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. Big Grin

Hello... Big Grin

Here is a screen taken from Na Thrang. 1951 : a Navy PB4Y "Privateer" is being loaded. In the background, french paratroopers are boarding into Ju-52 "Toucan" for an airborne assault...

Looks great! Smile




Here is a link where you could find interesting things for the Mission_Bug's South_Vietnam map (Indochina colonial era - 1945 / 1954)... Big Grin :wink:

- Skins
- Populated mission template

Hi Anatoli, welcome to the site.
Very nice skins Big Grin thank you.
The only thing is they may get lost here in this thread as it grows
Maybe you should post them in the IL2 Skins & Textures Download
Here; viewforum.php?f=50
As this is where people look for skins on this site and put a link from
Here to there for them in this thread.



Thank you Deutschmark ; I wrote a link in the "Skins" section...

Hi Anatoli, I took care to it, this forum is for IL-2 MAP MODS Downloads only,
and the IL2 Skins & Textures Downloads forum is for skins only.



Hello... Smile

Here is a set of modifications (they can be used independently or together...) made on the terrific South_Vietnam_Colonial_Map (Thank you Pete for having made and released such a great map !!), in order to :

1 - modify auto-pop trees (good for people experiencing freezes on this map - It modifies trees generation and their placement on ground) ;
2 - release an alternative briefing map and mini-map (see screenshots) ;
3 - resolve some few very minor issues concerning some roads near the coast (vehicles blocked in one or two locations in the map, due to a problem of separation between coast and sea areas in those one or two locations).

People installing these files will not experience any trouble in multiplayer games with those flying on the original map, as these modifications are only "cosmetic" ones...
