[SCENERY] Helgoland

Post by waspe414 » Sat Nov 19, 2011 6:18 am

[mod=Helgoland][previmg]http://i942.photobucket.com/albums/ad26 ... _total.png[/previmg]
[moddesc=http://www.mediafire.com/?p887tmau2gii2wl]I started this way back in April 2010, but it sat around until I took it back up and finished it just after Christmas. It was originally released on YSP, but I decided to put it here as well, just cause.

Helgoland is a little island off the coast of Germany, primarily rock. Difficult to make anything detailed that isn't flat in YS, but I spent a week or so working on the elevation grids to get them to work properly. Like seriously, everything (with the exception of the VOR and Burke) is elevation grids. That was back before I'd figured Gepoly out. (Nostalgia here we go!)

Best used with helicopters or some nice Cessna models.[/moddesc]

EDIT: Mediafire died, the topic copied from YSP is here.

I have always admired the amount of detail in such a small map and fly my sightseeing around it every once in a while. Definitely worth re-posting here. Well done waspe!

Actually, that map did appeared in a Ysflight vid. It's a faceoff between a CVW-171 Superhornet against a Flanker.

Superb job on this Waspe, I must have missed it the first time round. These small island maps are great fun on servers. 8-)

Really Impressive Waspe, the work on the sandstone cliff is excellent.

You can fly a Lightning over the scenery just about.

The white one? It was actually a lot of fun to make, had to invert one of the grids.

That ship throught me off at first, I thought it was meant to move till I got close and realised it had a texture XD

A very definite Down-Load for me; after I get my internet connection
back that is. I refuse to Down-Load anything via this work computer.
A superior piece of work from what I can see. Especially when you
compare it to the actual location, WOW!

It was exactly a VFA-131 F/A-18E Super Hornet against a Su-27 from the 49th. It was a bit polemic, though. Anyways, that's great! (the map)
