Greetings All,

Glad to see things are staying lively around camp. Work has kept me travelling, as usual, and when I have been home these last couple of weeks I've been puttering away at another WOFF project. It started a while back when I mentioned to Winding Man that it would help increase immersion if we could have bombed out factories in No Man's Land rather than the pristine facilities we've always seen there. He promptly provided us with just such bombed out factories at which point I offered my time to go through and adjust placement of not only these factories but all the factories in the WOFF landscape. I painted up a generic texture for the intact factories so that I could more easily place the facilities in the landscape and now am about midway through that placement process, which requires that I fly to each facility and set its elevation as well as tweak its coordinates and orientation.

Here are a few screenshots of how the factories will now appear in the WOFF UE landscape:










Once I have everything sorted out with this Winding Man plans on including it in an upcoming WOFF update. And, when it is done I can then return to my Farnborough and CFS project.

Cheers!

Lou

Lou, you're the best. Immersion King!
May I suggest black smoke from the chimney, or dark grey and more of it. If possible can these become targets? I seem to bomb airfields and railyards only. If those are targets already then my bad. I'm probably in the "factories off limits" squadron. And thank you for your dedication. salute

Would it be too much to ask for black smoke from Hun factories, white from Crumpets ?

Actually WM, you already have smoke at the factories however it is the same wispy white as the house smoke. It would be nice if the factory smoke was darker and denser looking.
