    Papua New Guinea Redux

    Been working on the nuts and bolts that require to be done to get a theater to run.

    Map with airfields so I can figure out a frontline and splash screen to fit the time frame.

    Excellent news Bob! If I can be of any assistance with the airfields etc let me know.

    Love that RAAF poster!

    The recruiting poster these days would be considered highly offensive to the ladies.

    Thanks Clive for the generous offer. Of course I can use the help in the airfield area. I have maps, sketches, and data on most of the airfields. A lot of the airfields were marsten mat, coral and or just dirt, some were even swamps. So pick your poison,let me know by private message and I will send you the data. Right now I am concentrating on 1941 to 1943 action.

    Looks like a great map Bob! The one thing about Rabaul in PTO was that it was near the edge of the map and the elevation data was missing in that area. Looking forward to seeing some proper Rabaul action here!

    Yes should be able to get some great bomber runs on Simpson Harbor, also battle of Bismarck Sea, some of battle of coral sea, and definately the 45 days of defending Port Moresby by the RAAF.

    The battle of the Bismarck Sea and the RAAF defense of Port Morseby was done in CFS3 Rising Sun by Talon many years ago.He also did Carrier strikes on Rabaul for PTO,my son(his nephew)still flies them.

    Yes, Al contributed a considerable amount of quality and very accurate work to all the pacific theaters that we worked on. Sorry that a lot of Al's work did not get into an update to RS before everyone scattered back to the ETO.

    Still making progress, have finished up the rivers portion of the theater. Started work on the lakes, however, it will be a slow go as the world shapefiles include the swamps as lakes which is not going to fly. So I will have to do the lakes on PNG island point by point using the topos.

    Started removing some of the rs aircraft not part of the PNG. Also been working on the uimusic, I think I got it right now. Have to relearn all these ins and out of the game. Took me 2 days to figure out how to do an alpha and process the splashscreen in DTX 555-1. geez. I have just forgotten so much.

    Wow, that's a lot of water, and great progress Bob! Another thing I have wondered about is the possibility of creating a hi-res in game map based on the theater creation files. Is it possible to put those shape files into some sort of very large bitmap or jpg?

    Also, an interesting challenge with the jungle is how the trees overhang and cover everything. Having spent some time in PNG and flown over some of those jungles, there's a lot of those streams you'd never know were there.

    Yes it is a lot of water. You should see all the amount of swamp areas. I have been using a map generated by gm to create the theater map. Did it for all the theaters in RS. I have used tiff, and png exported maps of the PNG islands and then flood fill the 2 colors in corel. Very difficult to get a high resolution map after processing to extended bmp 555-1.

    Hi Bob,

    On that list, are the co-ords correct for the new map? Am assuming they are but just wanted to check!

    The coordinates are from 2 different sources, Pacific Wrecks and Airdromes Guide of Southwest Pacific published by FEAF 1944.

    Now the map will be needing tweaking once all the bits and pieces are put into a theater. The present coastline of the map was produced by using 1945 US Army army topos. Some of the scanned topos were skewed some so there will be some problems that will require tweaking.
    Right now I have 3 different sets of alt_xxx.bmp maps ready to see which ones are best.

    Clive you have now been drafted into the FEAF.
