Bombsaway's Midway Late War. 44-45
« on: February 17, 2013, 01:44:08 PM »

This is a version of Midway around late 44 early 45. Now, I understand that after the battle of Midway nothing really happened there but this was more a way for me to get back into mapping. I had lost my interest in maps for a bit but have been trying to get back to it.

With permission from 242 Cat I used his Cat_Midway as a base because I loved the way he populated the map and his map_c work. So due credit goes to him.
I added land to try to match what the island looked like at this point in time. I also added the runways but Blumax jumped in  and made them work where I had failed.  So, thanks to him as well.

Credit for most textures go the their original makers. If any belong to you please let me know so I can add your name to the credits.

Also, thanks to  SAS~Epervier for sending me KLP's concrete plates so I could edit them for color so credit for the runway plates go to Kevin P for those.

I also used Jones' Runway Numbers so a big thanks to him.

I know there were no more battles of Midway but I added a "secret" listening post to one of the atolls for you bombing pleasure and it has a water runway for enemy planes to defend the post with. This map could also be used for those who want to train as bomber pilots. The runways are long enough for B-29s fully loaded to take off.

The blast pens are big enough for B-17s but each of the large ones are actualy parking spots for the AI planes so if you make a mission only place static planes on runways where you dont think your mission planes will want to park.

I left the Eastern island almost untouched except for texuring so it is still the work of 242 Cat and is great for fighter planes.

I also know the land is not exact but in IL2 mapping its hard to get any map exact.

There are two mods to add to your DBW folder but they are easy to install. Please let me know if anyone needs help.
I hope you all like it.  8)

Thank you Eleni. :)

For those who had problems with the spain texture, I fixed the problem and updated the link in the first post. All should be good now.
