Default Need Map of Western Pacific Region (Guam)

Ahoy, all fellow DW designers!

I am trying to find a user created map of the Western Pacific Region, specifically including Guam without success (so far). I have a work-in-progress for a campaign that will be using triggered scripts beginning with a US SSN leaving its berth alongside the submarine tender USS Frank Cable at Apra Harbor, Guam (JRM Naval Base Guam), transiting the Philippine channels, reconnaissance-in-depth of the Chinese artificial constructs in the Spratly Islands, and returning to Guam.

Background: Given the much shorter distance than from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, I share the opinion of the USN (and others) that, of necessity, the Joint Region Marianas continue to serve as a Naval Forward Operating Base (NFOB) for future missions (overt and covert) as a counter to Chinese expansion near the Philippines. It would likely also be used as a staging ground to oppose future Chinese aggression with Taiwan. Submarine Squadron 15 continues to be a valuable and available asset.

Any help in finding a DW usable map of the Western Pacific Region, specifically Guam, would be greatly appreciated.

What is your problem? You wanna make campaign but you can't find correct map in editor?

Change GUAM.txt to GUAM.mu and put it into scenario folder

Yeah, you can pick pretty much any place in the Pacific in the editor. Except you are restricted in the size of it.

Thanks p7p8 and Pisces for responding. The text map p7p8 provided works great after changing it to the .mu extension (as advised).

If you want to give me a couple days, I could 'spruce it up' with some bathymetric features and EEZ markings (and exercise areas, if I can find them)

Shameless Plug - I've also made maps of the South China Sea, East China Sea and Spratly Islands in my 'Map Packs', which you're welcome to use for your missions (in the download section of DW - Missions and Maps).

I haven't done the Philippines properly yet.

Cheers!
Stew

And, with a flash of inspiration, here it is!

https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=5951

This was actually a cool map to make - HUGE exercise areas, plenty of ocean and the Marianas Trench and Challenger Deep as well (a little over 35,000 feet on the DW map!)

Sadly, the Farallon de Medinilla bombing and naval gunfire range (the donut on the map) wasn't above sea level), maybe the sparsely populated Anatahan Island will do as a substitute?

It's in the Downloads Section now.



Cheers,
Stew
