Slot repainted by Whitecat v.1.0
« on: December 04, 2010, 11:28:31 AM »

Hi, this one deserves a special comment. First of all special thanks to the Pacific Team for this amazing map, we all know how much time they dedicated to make it as accurate and historical as possible.

The repaint is one of those quick ones, but IMHO is more lush than the original mod. I know they considered and desestimated the possibility of using JungleKT texture, which gives the wild air to the jungles but it shows uglily at the borders. Well this is possibly how it could have looked if they finally chose that way (and if they had got my tree textures :) ). I could have done it better now, but unluckily I really don't have the time so better I publish it, maybe inspires someone to improve it :D

The Slot retextured by Whitecat 1.0

Credits:

- Oleg & team of course
- Special thanks to the Pacific Team for this amazing map.
- Please excuse me if I forget anyone else, it's completely unintentional.

Instructions to install:

- Delete previous folders of 00_whc_Retextured_Slot
- Copy the folder 00_whc_Retextured_Slot_v1.0 into MODS folder.
- Add the lines in add_to_all_ini.txt to your MODS/Mapmods/maps/all.ini

If you want to use the missions you have already in these maps you have to change the 2nd line
of each .mis file from (I use one of the load ini's as example:

MAP Slot/load_0144.ini

to:

MAP Slot/whc_load_0144.ini

I highly reccomend the following campaign to test it:

Enjoy!

Next Hawaaii and the Slot for me..This MapWorx forum place is something like constant 'Christmas gift alley' lol.

   This may sound like a dumb question , but here goes......
 4.09 with SAS mod act is what I'm running.
I'm new to Il-2 and modding , I've added plenty of aircraft and sounds , and the Mission Pro combo .
So far so good on all that.
I've added a couple maps , and I'm very interested in your beautiful repaints.
I've looked all over for a map of "the slot" but cant find it.
Does this mod include the map or is it different textures for the map ?

"Instructions to install:

- Delete previous folders of 00_whc_Retextured_Slot
- Copy the folder 00_whc_Retextured_Slot_v1.0 into MODS folder.
- Add the lines in add_to_all_ini.txt to your MODS/Mapmods/maps/all.ini"

Does it go straight into the mods folder or does it go to Mapmods folder like the other maps I installed ?
Thanks

The Slot is a legendary and quite old mod, I can't find either now the link but if you install the UP 2.1 http://ultrapack.tuttovola.org/ you'll find it there. My mod doesn't include the map, only the repaint.

You have to copy directly that folder into the mods folder, not the Mapmods.

Cheers :)

Hi WhiteCat,

I just stumbled upon this this week, and I gave it a quick try this morning. You did a good job.

Thanks so much, but I still have a question, I can't open the solomens map in my DBW1.71+4.10, neither could I open the slot maps in my DBW, I don't know whether there is anything wrong with my IL2. Can't these beautiful maps be used in DBW?
