Chain Home/RDF station 4-mast mod for Wings over the Reich
From the included Readme:What it does
WotR's Chain Home RDF/radar stations have three transmitter towers; and the four smaller receiver towers are placed in front of these. In 1940, Chain Home stations generally had four transmitter towers and the receiver towers were sited off to one side, not in front. This mod adds a fouth transmitter tower and moves the receiver towers to the right (viewed from the front). It also adds an extra building near the latter, to represent the receiver building.
The mod won't replicate all real-life sites as the receiver towers could be on either side of the transmitter towers, and the lie of the land in WotR means the relocated receiver towers may not be on the same level (as happens at Ventnor) or otherwise not ideally placed. In an effort to minimise this, I have placed the receiver towers a bit closer in, than they seem to have been in real life.How to install it
Method 1 - using JSGME: unzip this file into your MODS folder, preserving the folder structure, and then enable the mod listed in JSGME as 'RDF 4-mast mod'.
Method 2 - as a back-up, make and save somewhere a copy of the file OBDWW2 Wings Over The Reich/facilities/Radar_Home_defence. Then extract the file of that name from this .zip file to that folder.
Any issues or comments, you can contact me at SimHQ. There are no conditions attached to use of this mod.Dover (Swingate) Chain Home station with the mod Ventnor Chain Home station with the mod
