Boreas,

From your worrying message above. I sincerely hope none of us have offended you in any way. You have done some amazing work improving the countryside, compared to what it was. I hope I can speak for everybody in the group and say that it is more than well appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks PV, Prem and all. The community thread is not restored as yet and the guide-lines were changed even though they had always been like that but then you can see otherwise. I don’t see how closing down on people would be thinkable but I can see how one might go about it and don’t like that trend. Anyway after quite a few months I’ve nearly completed templates for the ground textures to enable point and click colour editing. This should be ready within few weeks for anyone interested in using them to mod the ground scenery. With the slog taken out of the process, playing around with the colours for different fields is pretty easy and should make for quite a big improvement. Also this means I can't really withhold any files so my previous message above can be disregarded and BDG can use any of the files I have uploaded here, which can shortly be improved on by anyone anyway :) .

Boreas,

The Battle of Britain Development Group does not have my permission to include any files that I have made available since 2.13 was released in any further BDG update of BoBII Wings of Victory.


OK. Understood.
However, you still remain a member of the BDG. As you actually make things better around here.
We will heretofore not use your creativity anymore.

Thank you for your many, many, many, many, many previous contributions that are much appreciated.

I Love Your Work!

This why I am hesitant to send my Stukas to bomb London!

Image

I want Ultimate Destruction laid upon the Enemy, but I'll try not to slaughter my men doing so.

This was when I sent 1 Gruppe of Stukas (very well escorted) to bomb Woolwich Arsenal, which is arguably THE MOST IMPORTANT "Target" that the British Empire possesses.
The smoke is rising from initial destruction upon Woolwich after the Stukas hit it.

"But.. Sir! There are shitloads of Barrage Balloons all around London!"

"Damn the Torpedoes! Full speed ahead! Just this one time, OK? It is kind of important that your men do this."

"very well Sir. Wir will gehen!"

I only lost one Stuka to the Barrage Balloons, but it was kind of a close thing, on Target Egress, for this Staffel.

Here's an interesting fact (!) - My Dad worked for the UK Ministry of Defence at the Woolwich Arsenal from the 1970's until he retired in the 1980's. I also had a couple of vacation jobs there during non-term time when I was a student. The old place is very different now - its basically a housing estate, although I believe there is a small museum on the site.

If you drop bombs on the Arsenal, I may take it personally!!! :D :D :D

As with most of our mapping projects, I spent quite a few weeks
- in 2015 for this one - buried in the details of the Woolwich Arsenal
while honing the terrain geography, then passed it to Stickman to
have it landscaped with object placements.

By the time I'm finished, for a lot of these places, I feel like I've
actually visited it. Now that google's little yellow man has captured
most roadways, that is especially true.

I'm just about finished the heightmapping of East Kent, and I
have travelled all sorts of side roads in order to get a proper idea of
how the land slopes. The limited number of available ground textures,
and the limited density of allowable height points, make the result
rather less accurate than I could and would like to achieve, which is
a bit frustrating, as it obscures the amount of work that has gone into
it, but whatever.

I used this 1931 map primarily to reproduce Woolwich Arsenal.
Excellent map. With my (old) Paint Shop pro 7 program I can zoom in and see what the titles are over most all the buildings. :D Lovely.

Later Google showed this 1945 New Years aerial photo. Thanks!
Apparently the Nazi Germans never managed to blow this place away. Morons!

After I fell in love with The Arsenal, PV made the Canal, and straightened out some other terrain here, making Rowan's old terrain better. Thank you, PV.
I rebuilt some of the Arsenal to mate well with his better new terrain. With v2.13 it now looks like this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/in0xfkxjsm55c ... G.jpg?dl=0

Not all buildings are Target elements.
I confess that I got a bit carried away with my love of Woolwich Arsenal and made it with a whopping 63 target elements! Most of them factory "sections" making up larger factory buildings.
Hey! It's a big place. Kind of important too, as per RAF production. So be it.
The LW cannot destroy this place with a single Raid of 90 Stukas. Testing two LW Campaigns it takes me 4 or 5 more Raids with 90 level bombers each Raid, to destroy it to 85%.
And then, I have to line up Raid approaches in all kind of different directions to do so. Not easy.

It has always been my policy to make it harder for the LW to 100% destroy aircraft and armaments factories,
than it was since old Rowan year 2000 days, and when others later re-made factories, when it was way too damned easy to do so.

These aircraft and armaments factories are just as important as the aircraft that they make and supply, if not more so...
because without them, there will be no aircraft or guns & ammo. :wink:

Seems like drop-box is denying access to those images.
A change in policy? Access only to members who're signed in.
