Finnish maps collection - last map
« on: January 09, 2015, 05:25:58 AM »

Hi,

Here is the last of Agracier/Kapteeni’ s maps covering Finland that I have updated – ag_Archangelsk:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/bdbn4s5u68j1rvp/Archangelsk__1.1.zip

This map fills the gap between Murmansk area maps (stock and Mixx) and ag_Karelia.
Unzip and copy-paste to your IL-2 folder (the pack includes the file structure so it should be easy to do).

In case of missing textures you may have to download my _Tex folder:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/abyrr8dcsb9pp53/_Tex.zip

The update includes:
- maps for summer, autumn, winter and winter with frozen waters
- a dogfight mission for all maps

New/edited features:
- rebuilt roads and railroads
- rebuilt and relocated airfields using  Mixx and Compans airfield textures
- edited Mixx and Compans textures for autumn and winter maps
- new villages added and some villages/towns relocated
- added some place names

The above mentioned changes are made according to Russian and Finnish maps from 1939-44 and some other documents I’ve found. A big problem was the differencies between those historical maps when building roads and railroads but I think that they are correct enough for this purpose. There are lots of small roads around that I have not included, only the main and important roads are built. All things considered the map area was (and is) mainly big wilderness. A problem was also the coast line between Soroka and Njutskoye because it doesn’t  fit with the correct ed_m map. Also some lakes are missing: Imandra Lakes in the north and smaller lakes around Rukajärvi and Uikujärvi area in the south.

I have used Finnish place and lake names in the western part of the map and Russian names in the eastern part. This is because most of this map area is part of Karelia and old Karelian place names were in Finnish. Many places have the same name in both languages.

This area was not the most active theatre of war, but many fights took place in the north (Alakurtti-Afrikanda-Louhi-Pontsalenjoki area) and in the south (Tiiksjärvi-Sekehe-Soroka area). Murmansk-Leningrad railroad and the trains were frequently attacked by Luftwaffe and FAF. Even Archangelsk was bombed by Luftwaffe. Many reconnaissance missions were also flown over the area by both sides.
There are dogfight missions included in the zip pack, one for each season. The missions were built by using HSFX 7.0.3 and there are trigged versions that work only with 7.0.3, and “basic” versions for older HSFX/other mods. They are separated by “_trig” in the file names. The front line shows the situation in 1943.

For mission builders:
Add these lines to your all.ini file
ag_Archangelsk_Summer ag_Archangelsk/load_s.ini
ag_Archangelsk_Autumn ag_Archangelsk/load_a.ini
ag_Archangelsk_Winter ag_Archangelsk/load_w.ini
ag_Archangelsk_Winter_Ice ag_Archangelsk/load_wh.ini

Thanks for doing this! I must find time to revisit my old Finnish campaigns, and/or build some new ones!  :)

I don't know if this should be in Missions, but here you are:

Two scramble and head on missions for each side.

Jami!

Again thanks for a GREAT update of this map! Makes it really useful.

I want to include it in next update of "IL-2 SCW" (hopa that is ok) and also build a Winter War campaign for it, with DreamK's Hawker Hart, used by the Swedish Volunteeer unit F19. The area isn't the correct one historically, but geographically it really looks the part!

All the best

I'm very pleased to hear that and of course you may include it there. I'm looking forward to download it in the future.
