Map of Iran-Soviet Border Area
« on: December 06, 2011, 03:15:07 PM »

Here is a map I never quite finished. It is of the Iran-Soviet border area and was primarily meant to be used for scenarios involving a hypothetical conflict between the two countries, either during WWII or afterwards. Or prior for that matter I guess. Whatever.

Except for the airfields, which still use the old groundplate system instead of the much better suited Friction Mod by Zuti, the map is finished though. It is moderately, but adequately populated and along the border areas it has extensive fortifications or defensive works set up astride the main roads. There are also oilfields to bomb, strafe and destroy should anyone feel the need to drive up oil prices.

I mainly made it to have something different to see regarding textures. The look I hope is distinctive, though I doubt it is accurate.

In any case, since I have little time to finish new maps now, I thought it could better be posted. But please remember - airfields are still somewhat rudimentary.

Depending on your install, you might or might not need these tree textures by Uuflakke. Should you need them, they go in .../Mapmods/maps/_Tex/Trees

Hi Ag,

Is an interesting area to flew around in.

Your use of objects are pretty interesting for the area too.

As you say purely what if

I downloaded mainly to see the oil fields ( hoping that you may have discovered any objects for use for such installations)

Recently Epevier put up some new objects Beacons. One would definitely suit an oil well without the building

This map is very cool with endless mission possibilities

Cheers Kirby

Those error messages when it says 'section [MAP2D] not found' are not always straightforward to figure out. I would first of all check and see if the tree files are what is missing. I am not certain if they are included in all the setups like UP3.0 or DBW1.6.

Agracier, thank you for this map and your continued hard work. In real life, the Soviets and British invaded Iran in August 1941 to gain control over the oil fields and get there before the Germans. The Iranians didnt stand much of a chance ,but they did put up a fight and had aerial dogfights and ground attacks against the Allies.
In IL-2 Iran is a blue country and this map seems like a perfect excuse to pit the He 45 vs. the I-15 bis and /or the I-16 series5. These planes match up good for nice dogfights although the stock skin for the He45 wont take the Iranian green roundells. But the Hs-123 does and that leads into my next mission with this map.
Keep up the good work, and I know you will improve this map when you have some time---OH RIGHT!!! Finland first!!!---looking forward to that one too.

Could you tell me which version of the game you have installed? The error message you got does not really say much directly in terms of what is missing, in any case such messages do not have anything to do with the ed_maps ... but often with one of the parameters in the load.ini ....

From what I can see it may be this line in the load.ini:

Tree0 = Trees\Ifni_DesertTree.tga

I would first try a solution like this. Either take a tree0 line from any other map you have and insert it in your Iran_Soviet load.ini in place of the above line.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/swpfn3

and place them in your trees folder which can be found here:

...#DBW/mapmods/maps_Tex/trees/ ...

See if this helps.

Sendspace retires files after a long period of non-downloads. Anyway, here is another link. This should be the correct files.
