Hi all !
Nice ,there always something to do or upgrade in this game on different places and domains
To applies the process more away in the part I know, I've started a big project ... ,the fourth in the list after the truk lagoon challenge,Gibraltar strait and Oran-Mers el Kebir
(these last are in fact two parts of the same ).
France Manche ,as I've called it,is a long way,Cotentin to Pas de Calais passing by the Seine and Normandy beaches ,but in this kind of scenery work if you make directly the right things the time consuming is more productive,you make every things one time and that's all....the g2k work, at the begining ,need a adaptation time where you draw.....remove.....erase....time consuming to
test....etc....but at the start the right position ,the coords of the background bmp is the most important
Time consuming also to known the limitation of g2k ,its bugs and how organize the LWM files and their folders,cause at the end each project can have severals LWMfiles,so now I make folder in g2k for each with their own files .
the first pic is the background bmp for the Le Havre area made with a three psp layers ,a height bmp,a swdb bmp and a old fifty us army map from perry castaneda site ,these map
have good coords.
I scale the three bmps in psp and by decreasing their opacity as I want ,for the road i increase the old map to the top,for
the coast and stream the swdb etc...
2nd pic ,the area covered by the FM project and the work done, land and water mask ,the vtp1 lines,coast, beach ,road ,railways etc...
the result on the ground ,Cotentin pics, even a begin of a work of the other side of the channel...a test on the cliffs of dovers ,last pic...
This project is like a great pullover to make ,this will be done for the next year ,I've some to finish before.....I finish in fact to learn the g2k tool
,I'm at the land and water class values chapter,raw files etc .... how to work with,and also a screenshot inventory for each value was needed ,the renderind is completly different between a pactex and a euro tex set..
this is the work part I'm finishing in the Gib Oran project to have the sceneries completly done ,I could already upload them but they are not completed and i don't want upload fix to upgrade them....
Dombral work also on the gsl aspect of these Med sceneries ,he wait for them
