But a better name for both of these maps would be "African city"

    Mogadishu 'island'

    The road layout would be easy. Getting the buildings in would be the mind-numbing bit; balancing out the close spaces against lag. Aside from the inconvenience of actually doing it during mission creation, are there any disadavantages to dropping in the buildings as needed? It was quite a city once. what a tragedy.
  5. Nope. Check the goggles on the same model.

I found this map of Mogadishu In my wanderings: The shorline is South South-East. The airfield would be a major problem to do, given the apparent limitiations of textures/ILS.

    How about Smoke/"IR Strobes" that can be used to designate targets?

    the site that offers the best three-view drawings of aircraft I've ever seen anywhere on the web is here. There's a VERY good selection available. Since it's in Cyrillic, second button, top left, then the third button down in the sidebar and you should be able to find what you need

In O2 enter the name of the graphics file by hand (extention.jpg). It will tell you there's an error, but use them anyway. The downside is that it may have a significant effect on performance. I don't know if any other file types can be used.

    Bungie addon ?

    Me, I'd wait until you were on the way down before ripping the helo up with AAA. That way, if the fall don't kill you the remains of a chopper to the back of the neck will.

The napalm bomb and the new rotor downwash effects are (besides the A-4 by Col. Klink) the two things I most desperately wait for to be published!<span id='postcolor'> I have actually finished the downwash script. It is with Tigershark now, although I will ask him about it today. Status of napalm is kind of in limbo while I decide what course to take. At the moment its a good explosion effect. I have held back from developing it into a napalm effect with a spreading and burning effect for now, primarily because there is not, I dont think, (1) a decent vehicle capable of dropping napalm. (2) An actual napalm canister/bomb addon. If anyone has seen the A10 with human missiles addon, we could use the same thing for a plane with napalm bombs. Ideally for the SEB NAM pack this would be a skyraider, but AFAIK there isn't one in the works. At BAS we are concentrating on getting the Deltas/Rangers out ASAP. Maybe after that I can see what is planned from STT for future NAM releases........... TJ<span id='postcolor'> Actually, the aircraft that was responsible for the majority of CAS work south of the DMZ was the F100 Super Sabre: Hopefully soon.
  18. "Apocalypse Now" isn't a good example; that was a special effect, and a botched one at that. The first couple of charges go off fine, then all the rest go off simultaniously. The best (worst) example of a napalm strike caught on film is the real botched drop by the South Vietnamese Air Force on the village of Trang Bang. It may be around on the web, but linking to it if you do find it would probably infringe forum rules.

Its going to be a long and difficult job gathering it all up. edit: At the risk of opening myself up to all sorts of dumbass comments from the peanut gallery: I've been a space buff for as long as I can remember.  A lot of things in my life are just a blurr, but I can remember, like it was yesterday, the launch and landing of STS-01.  I can remember what it was like outside as I watched Columbia blast into space on a pillar of smoke and fire.  I remember the awe, and to this day I feel its echoes every time I watch a Shuttle launch.  For many youger types, the Shuttle is really something workaday.. a common occurance.  And as such not really as awe inspiring as it maybe should be. The 7 men and women of the Columbia crew arent heroes.  They accepted the risks of their chosen professions like any of us do.  They are worth no more than anyone else who might die in an accident.  But they represent the best and brightest.  All highly trained and educated, they are pioneers and explorers in addition to being scientists and pilots.  And because they take the lead into a new frontier, they deserve our respect and thoughts when something like this happens. And so I mourn for these seven people a little more than for the many other folks that may have died the same day... because they were in pursuit of something that makes us all better.

I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue, I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or even eagle flew - And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high unsurpassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

The industrial aspects of the space programme are already with us. People question if the investment in pure research is worth it. Pure research is an investment in the future. Maybe the whole space program will turn out to be a dead end. But just short of 100 hundred years ago by months, in a place called Kittyhawk, something happened which changed the World forever, and I'm sure that any people that watched that totally impractical device stumble into the sky with a man aboard wondered if it would ever be anything more than a very elaborate way to commit suicide. But look where it's taken mankind. S! Apollo 1, Soyuz 11, Challenger, and Columbia. Building bridges to places the rest of us can only dream about.

We all know nothing burns without O2 present, so I'm wondering how long the flames would actually burn before they burnt themselves out.<span id='postcolor'> If it were detonated in a comfined space that would be true, but in the open more air would simply rush in to take its place. if I remember right the air in the area around a naplam blast radius of about 50m) isn't really unbreathable as such, it's just that it's so hot that after the first breath your lungs are in no condition to process it.
