Shreckie-Woodpecker Islands, atolls, shoals PICS

Post by Wudpecker » Tue Jul 26, 2005 8:53 am

Looks like all are done except Wake Island.
Are we using that?
Will add if so.

On the the way to Shreck's for checking.
Moggy: they can be downloaded in about eight hours on Tues. 26th July at Wudpecker@gmail.com
Screen name: Wudpecker
Password: Wudpecker


Treat it as you would any email and click on the " Shreck-Wudpecker Midway files to get a download screen.

Question---should I add skies as in my "Weather mods"?

Shreck did 50 (not counting Wake Island) satellite photo retouches.
50x4=200 retouches for me. I'm actually lying for both of us, since half of them are LR tile files.

The new tiles in four colors (two very dark as requested by poll on SimHQ and two medium for my sanity---turn down your brightness, fellas and gals! Found why most people consider my seas too light :roll: )

Some examples:

Okay, Erik. Use the same Gmail addy as above for your own download.
The first set is up, the the rest should be done in about an hour.

Will begin another slavery session :cry: on Wake Island, the toughest of the bunch. Whine, whine.

Boy, if they only knew what we go through for our flight simmers. (They probably don't notice---unless something is wrong :roll:

But this undoubtedly is the most authentic mid-Pacific Ocean terrain of ANY flight sim, thanks to your satellite acumen

You busy little rascal, Erik. Good luck on KAW to you and Ade Kelly. Sounds like a fruitful combo.

Would you send me your "view" file on the Midway set? I can't view Wake Island in the usual way by renaming tiles (too many tiles), so I don't know if the joins are off or no.

Hello Chaps,

New terrain looks very good indeed Wudy :yes:

Now I have jelly's new terrain editor, doing the Midway target files should be a lot easier.

Just doing a quick and rough run through the ME world with it so that I can get out another Iraq beta, then I'm on to Midway2
