I'd like to have some of those as well. Without overlay I cannot accurately tell where they are.

If you know the coordinates of each one it's quite easy to create overlay with the Baloogan's modified GMap.NET program.

Tutorial:

Just letting you know for CMANO those are under water - when you try to add structures you will get this:


But don't give up, with some extra work it's still possible. Just place the structure somewhere on land and then simply move it to the desired location based on the overlay - the game won't be checking again if that point is under water.

The map looks supremely detailed. I know Baloogan and his GMap already, but I don't see which map layout has it. Bing?

Bing doesn't show them. That's Google China.

Very cool

that runway looks like its raised, at least on the SE side, is that a shadow or just some weird effect?

Thanks

I have not done China's SCS islands, but do have overlays for their "String or Pearls" bases.

If we stare at those maps for so long we should make them as pretty as possible :D
That's the russian base in Syria that I used in recent scenario.

There are no hangers. I am guessing the planes are stored beneath the runway. There is a featture at the northern end of the runway which migh be a lift or a ramp.

Just the google photos are not up to date enough - there are hangars already.

It's awesome that all South China Sea islands are finally added. Thank you!

I'm not military expert, but I try to guestimate defences in these islands in case of conflict. Can anyone help who know more about Chinese weapons.

1) There are rumors that some islands have Over the Horizon HF/DF (?) radars. What do you think? This could be Low Frequency sub communication arrays too?


2) Typical Air Defence? HQ9 + some point defence. What to use?

3) It seems there is enough hangars/tarmac in Subi Reef for about 20-40 fighters and maybe 4-8 larger planes.

4) Probably ELINT stations and submerged listening posts too

5) What radars should I use for air and surface?

I think that's just dirt or vegetation, but I'm not sure what you're referring to exactly. The photo may have been taken when they just started putting down dirt/grass/whatever to limit erosion.

Agree, some of the other photos clear it up. Its just a dark shadow or you say, fresh dirt.

Did any one else hear that China moved the H-6k bomber to one of the reefs?
I am not sure how much danger it would be to a Carrier Group, but that certainly means they can project some kind of power.
They are following the Japanese World War II model... Island bases... except the Chinese are making their own islands...

China landed few H-6k bombers to Woody Island during the naval exercise.

I have made China South Sea islands facilities, easy to import. Overlays are also available, but pretty big download (160 Mb). Feel free to download.

Download Island imports (RAR)

Download overlays (RAR)

Preview picture, Fiery Cross Reef.

I love the look of what you have done.

I have a propensity of being able to FUBR anything new, so can you explain how I might go about implementing (step-by-step) your most excellent work?

Thanks.

Doug

Because of the projection, the RIMPAC has disinvited China to answer their negligence.
