Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded

Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod v1.01

Description: This file contains modified bitmap files for Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy which adds a grid to the 3D terrain.

Contents: This file contains a preview picture of the mod, “Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod Preview V101.jpg”, this readme file “Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod Readme V101.txt” and the modded bitmap files in “Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod V101.brz”.

The mod file “Rocket Man-Default Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod V101.brz” contains modified bitmaps for all ground files and roads for both the near and far bitmaps. The far bitmaps have a grid line every 10 meters, with a darker gridline every 50 meters. The near bitmaps are based on a nominal 2m grid, but since the terrain files aren’t a uniform size (see for actual tile sizes), the grids vary from 1.81m to 2.56m as shown in the following table:

Terrain File-grid spacing
Ground grass – 2m
Ground grass yellow -2m
Ground dirt – 2.064m
Ground dirt red – 2.064m
Ground forest floor – 2.036m
Ground hard – 2.036m
Ground rocky – 2.036m
Ground rocky red – 2.036m
Ground sand – 2.036m
Ground brush – 2m
Ground brush hard – 2m
Ground mud – 1.87m
Ground marsh – 1.87m
Ground dirt ploughed ew – 2m
Ground dirt ploughed ns – 2m
Ground highway – 2m
Ground railroad – 2m
Ground paved – 2m
Ground paved 2 – 2m
Ground cliff – 2.13m
Ground cobblestone – 1.93m
Ground pavement – 1.81m
Ground gravel – 2.25m
Ground dirt road – 2.25m
Ground pavement 2 – 2.22m
Ground ford – 2m
Ground green crop – 2.56m
Ground grain – 2.56m

Additionally, some of the files have a thicker and darker grid every 10m nominally, with the actual spacing as shown below. Note some tiles have an odd number of grid lines and thus two spacings for this grid. The spacings in this case are shown with a slash between them.

Terrain File – Grid Spacing
Ground grass – 10m
Ground grass yellow -10m
Ground dirt – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground dirt red – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground forest floor – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground hard – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground rocky – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground rocky red – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground sand – 10.32m/12.216m
Ground mud –11.2m
Ground marsh – 11.2m
Ground dirt ploughed ew – 10m
Ground dirt ploughed ns – 10m
Ground ford – 8m
Ground highway – 8m
Ground railroad – 8m
Ground paved – 8m
Ground paved 2 – 8m

Finally, the base ground files, “ground grass” and “ground grass yellow”, have an even thicker, darker grid every 50m.

Note: There is a version of this mod that uses the Aris Terrain Mods as the underlying artwork called “Rocket Man-Aris Terrain CMBN Gridded Terrain Mod v1.02” if you don’t like the default CMBN terrain look.
