CAT Afghanistan v1.3 beta

Post by Snake Man » 2009-09-08 11:02:19

PMC CAT Afghanistan v1.3 beta

This is CAT Afghanistan terrain ported from OFP. This new version has satellite texture + mask, nothing else is changed. The texturing is now true to the OFP original, source files for the satellite texture are from the OFP version of this terrain. Signature file is not included because hdd crash/backup and this being temporary beta version, sorry.


Install

You must have the CAT Afghanistan v1.2 installed!

Put this pmc_catintro.pbo into the same mod directory as catintro.pbo (v1.2).

Now you should be able to see "PMC catintro (satellite texture + mask)" terrain available in mission editor.

When you start to test, all existing missions which you want to play need to be saved/merged into this temporary beta version terrain naming which is "PMC_catintro". You can do this by taking your existing mission "<name>.catintro" and copying (please don't rename) it to "<name>.PMC_catintro" which is pretty easy.


Beta Testing

This is first version with the satellite texture + mask and we need some beta testing that does it work ok with the ground clutter and everything. Please report feedback about how the new texturing system works, if the clutter ok etc.

When some feedback has come in and I've done additional work for it to tweak it just right, I'll release the final version.


Known issues

Texture is low quality. Original source image was 1600 x 1600 resolution which is not that detailed, it was further resized up to 3200 x 3200 where the most low res poor quality comes from. We lost due accident with BinPBO the original 12800 x 12800 high res image, we apologize.

None of the v1.2 issues have been fixed.


Download

Please do not put this beta release into news sites, as this might get updated quickly and we don't want to get such "unfinished" version to be widely distributed. All news sites will be promptly informed when the final version comes out, don't worry guys :)

PMC CAT Afghanistan v1.4 beta

This is CAT Afghanistan terrain ported from OFP. This new version has 50m object blocks split into individual models to fix the object floating, nothing else is changed. The texturing is now true to the OFP original, source files for the satellite texture are from the OFP version of this terrain. Signature is included.


Install

1) Delete the existing catintro.pbo and pmc_catintro.pbo
2) Put contents of this archive into mod directory of your choosing.
Done.

Now you should be able to see "PMC catintro (satellite texture + mask)" terrain available in mission editor, this is the version to test for (do not run "old" CAT Afghanistan).

When you start to test, all existing missions which you want to play need to be saved/merged into this temporary beta version terrain naming which is "PMC_catintro". You can do this by taking your existing mission "<name>.catintro" and copying (please don't rename) it to "<name>.PMC_catintro" which is pretty easy.


Beta Testing

This is second version with the satellite texture + mask and we need some beta testing that does it work ok with the ground clutter and everything. Its the first version with 50m objects split up. Please report feedback about how the new texturing system works, if the clutter ok and how the objects are aligning to the ground etc.

When some feedback has come in and I've done additional work for it to tweak it just right, I'll release the final version.


Known issues

Texture is low quality. Original source image was 1600 x 1600 resolution which is not that detailed, it was further resized up to 3200 x 3200 where the most low res poor quality comes from. We lost due accident with BinPBO the original 12800 x 12800 high res image, we apologize.

From the v1.2 issues only the floating objects have been now fixed.
