    Oil Storage Tanks UT


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Scenery - Library objects

    Description: Oil Storage Tanks for CFS2 by UncleTgt


    These are 2 sets of bulk oil storage tank objects for use in CFS 2. They are multi-LOD & have destroyed models & textures. One set is painted Olive Drab, the other in a neutral grey.


    I struggled to find definite information on tank dimensions, so ended up with 4 different sizes, mainly matching the information about the remotely located bulk oil stores that were constructed across Australia during 1942/43. This range may need adding to ...


    5m diam x 9m high nominal capacity 1000 USG The AF B1 & G1 tank is larger than this


    9m diam x 9m high nominal capacity 2500 USG The AF B1 & G1 tank is smaller than this


    18m diam x 9m high nominal capacity 7000 USG A squat, larger diameter storage vessel


    21m daim x 11m high nominal capacity 15000 USG This object closely matches the AF_B2 & G2 tanks for size




    To install, unzip the download to a temporary location & move/ copy files to the matching folder names inside your chosen CFS 2 install.


    Thanks to

    Arno Gerretsen for ModelconverterX & FXeditor, such clever & versatile tools

    Thanks a lot John - I hope they burn really well.

    Wow! Great work UT. The collateral damage to nearby structures is massive when you torch one of these.

    Yup they are objects you add to missions via Mission Builder.

    Or... "be vewy, vewy careful..." You can always install them and hand edit them into a mission file in place of a similar fuel/oil tank. Not recommended for the faint of heart.

    Wow, Unc! You really have been busy recently. Many thanks (sorry Allen - tanks ) for these and all the other eye candy and fixes you've been posting. Much appreciated and yet more handy tools in the box.

    Cheers

    Shadow Wolf I have hand edited a/c and ships in missions that were incorredtly "typed". I might be "vewy vewy" careful and give it a try.
    Haven't been able to do any CFS 2 "stuff" since 87 days except check out and look at all the items being added! Wow
