Greetings All,

I have just put together the beta of my Havrincourt Wood mod for those who would like to test it out and provide feedback. Here is the download link

Havrincourt Wood BETA for WOFF UE

Once you have the file downloaded simply unzip it, open the folder, and run the auto-installer and it should place the mod directly into your JSGME "MODS" folder. From there you can activate it via your JSGME control panel, however be sure to deactivate any other mods that are currently modifying the global layer files, such as my Farnborough mod. You will need to fly during the spring or summer of either 1915 or 1916 in order to see "Old Mossy Face" in the sim landscape as this is the beta version and is only meant for testing purposes at this point. Once I know this runs well for you folks under different flying conditions I will finish up the version for No Man's Land and build the tiles for the fall and winter months.

When you have the mod up and running you should see something like this when flying over the area just east of the Bertincourt aerodrome:

Give it a go Gents and let me know how it works for you, in particular with a lot of action over or near the woods.

Thanks!

Lou

Robert, after taking on Farnborough this one is a piece of cake - relatively speaking. biggrin

I'm afraid the FPS hit of so many individual "facility" trees will be quite bad. Even if they look as simple as the autogen ones the game engine has to do much more work for facility objects than for autogenerated ones.

I agree Ankor. I went through that problem working on Roucourt but that was pre WOFF UE. Maybe things are much better now. It's worth the try.

Lou, I've personally been bigger on history than eye candy, so I'll be delighted if there is anything recognizable as a wood down there. Thank you for this!!!

My pleasure Raine, I'm a big fan of the history side of it all as well. Since Havrincourt Wood was one of the most recognizable features from the air in southern Flanders, and as such has been mentioned in many writings of the day, it really needs to be in the WOFF landscape. By the way, have you flown from Farnborough yet?

AnKor and Robert, I am only putting in a random sprinkling of trees in the facilities, actually less than the number you find in most of the aerodrome facilities. In my opinion there only needs to be enough trees to give the place a bit of depth at ground level and low altitude. I am also fitting the woods into the surrounding landscape so that it blends properly with the smaller roads and fields and such.

Mr. Dirt, nice to know I can still amaze. biggrin

Thanks folks.

Is there any difference in the hit on FPS between leafy trees and skeletal remains ?

I imagine it will, and from the looks of it in WOFF, beginning in 1917 and onward, "Old Mossy Face" will be nothing more than a churned-up outline with a few war-torn trunks. This would mean that apart from the eleven textures there will be very little that has to load. Also, from my experience, the textures don't seem to have any impact on performance or FPS so we should be good to go. I have dropped in about 30 or so trees in each of the eleven tiles and again have not seen any hit to FPS or performance, even with an entire jasta flitting about the place.

Greetings All,

Hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas, I know I did. Progress continues on my Havrincourt Wood project and I have it all fitted into the surrounding countryside now. Where there are roads in the landscape I have continued these on through the woods. I've also cleaned up the textures and have been scattering trees throughout and am now placing a few clumps of them here and there to see if they have any impact on FPS. So far so good. Here is a screenie showing how things are looking at this point:

(right-click on image and open in new window to view it full size)



After I'm done adding in as many trees as I estimate it can handle and still run smoothly I will make the beta version available for testing. And if all goes well with that I'll make the winter textures and the version for NML and can release the full mod.

Later folks.

That looks really nice. The shrubbery looks good from the height. I cant detect the trees though probably because of the height.

Great mort Sir!

Cheers!

AirsFuser, I should have mentioned that you will want to deactivate any other mods that are altering the global layers. This would be additional aerodromes such as my Farnborough mod. Thanks for bringing this important point up in the conversation.

Once you are satisfied with it we will need to find a way to compile a global layer that addresses all the mods. This could be an interesting issue.

Maybe a special global laywr mod to address all.

Robert, what I imagine will need to happen is that Havrincourt and other such mods that deal with the Flanders area will have to be grouped into a single mod in order to eliminate the issues of over overwriting altered files that are being loaded by other mods. Shouldn't be that hard to sort out.

I agree it shouldn't be hard to sort out but I was thinking that global layer could be one stand alone mod which could be easily updated as needed and contain ref for all mods. This approach would eliminate need to group all mods together and you could then only load the mod of your choice. All mods grouped would have larger impact on WOFF.

I think this would be possible but require testing.

What do you think

I think I don't know what you mean precisely. Are you suggesting a global layer mod that includes all the line entries for all the other mods but nothing else? If so I don't believe that will work because, IIRC, when the global layer files call out for a certain item and that item is not found in the sim files you will get an error message.

You are essentially correct on my intention. I would like to test this.

Just curious if anyone here has had an opportunity to try out Havrincout Wood and if so how it ran in the sim for them. Any and all feedback will be much appreciated.

Thanks folks.

Lou...I'll check it out and have feedback within the next few hours. I'm excited to try it.

Thanks Adger, it certainly looks to be displaying properly. Have you tried setting up a massive furball above it to see how it may affect your FPS and overall smoothness?

Many thanks Adger, that is very helpful information. Out of curiosity, what are your system specs.

Lou, tested your mod in an RiR Campaign mission, while loitering over Bertincourt to lure some Eindeckers into combat. The trick did not work, but the old mossy face, Havrincourt Wood looked very good! No fps or other issues whatsoever.
Well done, I like such unique landmarks!
Keep up the good work, Sir!

Thanks again Adger. You are running a hotter CPU than mine and larger monitor resolution, but the rest of your system looks relatively close in terms of what it should be capable of. Here are my specs for comparison:

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core, OC'd to 4.2GHz
CPU Fan: Arctic Super Cooler
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16gb (4 x 4gb) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth P67
Hard Drives: 2 Western Digital 640 GB Caviar Black SATA
Opti Drive: LG 22X DVD+/RW Dual Layer SATA Rewrite
Video Card: 2 EVGA GTX 970 SSC 4gb cards in SLI configuration
PS: Corsair HX 850 Watt
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
LG 27" flat screen LCD monitor, 1920 x 1080 native resolution
Four large case fans, plus the PS, CPU, mobo, and card fans
Saitek AV8R joystick
Saitek Pro Flight rudder pedals
Track IR4 camera with latest IR5 software


LowDrag, thanks to you as well for taking the time to test out the mod, it is much appreciated. Same question when you have time to answer it: What are your system specs?


I have finished up Old Mossy Face for 1917 and you can see how the front has crept onto its eastern edges. Still very recognizable though.

By 1918 No Man's Land will have spread much farther west and Havrincourt Wood will be nothing but a faint outline in the mud. Ah well, c'est la guerre.

Hey folks, just a quick update on Havrincourt Wood. Work continues as I am now building the various seasonal tiles. Here is a screenie showing "Old Mossy Face" in the dead of winter

(right-click on image and open in new window to view it full size)


Putting together all the different landscape tiles for these mods is incredibly tedious and every time I am in the middle of it I marvel, yet again, at how much time and effort the devs put into this amazing mod. I wonder just how many hundreds of thousands of hours they've ticked up over the years - boggles the mind it does.

It does boggle the mind when you think about the amount of time they spent. Thanks for their dedication. We also thank you Lou for your talents and dedication also. Your hard work is the topping on a well baked cake. Have a drink on my tab.

I like to preserve the surprise so when I load new scenery like this, or like Lou's amazing aerodromes, I try not to visit each one right away. Otherwise it's like shaking your Christmas present a week before the day. But now that my DiD character has moved to Vert Galant, I'm really looking forward to the first offensive patrol on a clear day. Thanks, Lou!

Thanks as always folks for the encouragement and the kudos, much appreciated.

Raine, keep in mind this is still the beta test version of Old Mossy Face. As noted in the first post, it will only show in 1915 and/or 1916 and has no winter textures yet. So, with that said, if you are flying during the spring or summer of the two aforementioned years, you should see this most recognizable landmark in the sim.

Greetings All,

My Havrincourt Wood Mod is at long last done. This one turned into a much bigger project than I imagined going in as I ended up having to create three versions of “Old Mossy Face” to deal with the front lines sweeping across it in 1917. End result involved having to build 240 texture files to deal with all 11 tiles in all seasons and periods of the war. But it’s done! I've just zipped up and sent the completed mod to Sandbagger for hosting on his User Mods Page but for those of you who just can't wait here is a temporary download link:

WOFF UE Havrincourt Wood Mod by RAF_Louvert

Please take note that as this mod changes the global layer files in the sim it should not be used at the same time as other mods which do the same thing, such as the aerodrome mods. Hopefully Robert will find the time in the near future to add this to the consolidated mod.

Let me know what you think, and happy flights!

Lou
