Nordic theater
« on: October 02, 2017, 01:34:54 AM »
Hey Vyrtuoz

have you planned to add this theater map in Tacview ?
That would be great  :winner

I've tried to follow the instructions of that topic : http://dogsofwarvu.com/forum/index.php/topic,5032.0.html
But I can't find the theater in the Data-Falcon4Theaters.xml file

(here is the link of that theater just in case you need it : https://www.bmsforum.org/forum/showthread.php?31858-Nordic-V2 )

Hi Foxy,

Added to my todo list! Because I have a lot of work, I cannot guaranty the terrain will be available in Tacview 1.6.4 final. More likely in Tacview 1.7.

I may also add an entry in the CustomTextureList if there is a map (like jpg or png texture) provided for it.

cool !!!  :thumbsup

Here are some maps I've found inside the theater folder !
I don't know if it will be useful for you ... if not could we simply use google earth for now ?

Because of differences in the way maps are projected between real-world and this theater, it will be difficult to make the ONC C-2 match the BMS terrain displayed in Tacview.

However, the first map (with the air spaces) looks good. Can you give me its exact path? I will do some tests with it and let you know if it works fine.

I understand, I was looking for a jpg or png picture :)

I have added the theater terrain in Tacview 1.6.4 beta 4. Unfortunately, none of the pictures provided are matching well enough the terrain coordinates to be easily added to the custom texture file. It would take too much time for me to find the perfect coordinates.

When Tacview 1.6.4 will be published, feel free to copy/past the coordinates from Data-Falcon4Theaters.xml in CustomTextureList.xml to see if you can find a good match. (I do not give you the new xml file here, because I had to improve my code to load the Nordic theater despite incorrect metadata)
