Thread: Vietnam for CFS2 Beta Release

    WatchDog,

    The upcoming beach scenery is just a guess at best, All I have is a very small side view pic that may show some structures of some sort
    at the far end of the pic...I have no idea if they are military or local type buildings, even the location is a guess at this point.

    Also I read a small blurb that the base itself had a drive inn movie theater...true ??

    Any input you may have is more than welcomed. please feel free to contact me direct:

    I know every one is tired of updates...But these will be required for the next Phan Rang release
    plus can be a lot of fun otherwise.

    From memory there was a large beaching facility with a jet fuel pumping station, warehouses and a mess (Great food!). There was a fuel pipe from the pump station all the way to the airbase. The rec beach was in a separate compound to the north with a couple of buildings and a watchtower.

    If by chance anyone has a link to a page or old map, or layout etc.... of the beach or pumping station
    I have one original quick side polaroid pic of the beach and that is it.
    I sure would love to see "anything", I have searched the internet to no avail.....
    So for now I will just deliver my made up from imagination beach with no pumping station.

    Which beach guys?

    Sorry, looking back through the posts I didn't see the name of the beach.

    I have some photos packed away of China Beach at DaNang.

    Sorry D Dog,
    I was responding to WatchDogs post about the Beach at Phan Rang,

    no mention of the fuel docks.....or location.

    Thank you CK,
    I had not seen or found the pic of the pipes...so they had to be on an inlet or lagoon....Not on the front beach ??

    Much appreciated sir.

    Hi All, loved the pictures! Unfortunately I lost all my color slides in the Brisbane floods in 1973. I had been posted interstate and my stuff was in a container that went under, I was pretty upset as I was a keen photographer. I'll have a poke through my few black and white negatives and see what I come up with.

    That 'bunker' at the beach was replaced when I pulled duty there. The new one was much more GI and effective with an aluminum plate roof with several layers of sandbags.

    Phan Rang Bay was a big half moon shape and I checked on google maps to jog my memory. The pumping facility was on the front beach about two thirds of the way north. The shipping was large landing craft that beached hull first then sand was bulldozed to form a spit and the ramps were lowered. I don't remember any piers there.

    Google maps also helped me find the airbase and I identified where our barracks were. The RAAF compound was a separate facility.

    Hi No Dice, I'm steadily plowing through the install and had a problem with the self extractor for the 'Brown Navy' to the CFS2 folder. In the end I successfully extracted it to a different folder and manually installed. Just a heads up for anyone else building a VN install,
    Cheers,

    I just noticed and wanted to thank everyone for all your support and contributions to the project.
    On our way to making 300,000 hits, all because of Ya'll and Rami of Course, where would the SOH
    or the CFS2 forums be without Rami ?? I do not even want to think about the day he gives up on us....

    Thank all of Ya'll

    G'day, I've downloaded and installed all the required files but when I ran the sim I get the dreaded corrupt message. I'm now going to do another clean install and just add one file at a time like I should have from the start. I'm not going to give up as the pics of the base at Phan Rang look superb. Back to the drawing board and more rum!!

    I should have also stated that applies to anyone,
    until I can figure out a way to combine the project download
    to a point that most can download the project in 2 or three or four downloads..............

    Your ideas and or input are more than welcomed,

    Dave, for making large, combined uploads available to the public, you should investigate the use of 'torrenting'. Just google "how to make a torrent file" and do the home work. A lot can be said about the legalities of torrenting, but that only gets "touchy" when dealing in copyrighted material that you don't own or have distribution rights for.

    Several flight sim designers and publishers have used torrents over the years to distribute mega installation files. The Over Flanders Fields mod for CFS3 or "OFF" is a good example, as well as some of the free IL2 updates for modding whole installs.
