Hi Fatty Finn,

A highly detailed and impressive map  ;D
It really looks great. ;D :)
Did you hand paint the textures area by area and tile by tile?
It sure looks like it.  ;D :)
If so, I know what major effort and time went in to this map.
Excellent job  :D :)

Cheers
Kirby

Maybe something to help enjoy the art of MR. Finn? Loaded to M4T.



Thanks again for sharing your talent with us.

Very cool looking map! It has actually inspired me to start research on my next DCG Campaign Project - The Afrika Korps Air Force. I am finishing up testing and tweaking my Kanal Front '41 - '43 Campaign using GilB57's Western Front 39-45 Maps (...which I plan to release when I feel it won't get laughed it too much).

Question - does anyone know how to add this map manually to CUP or would it be best to be patient and wait?

I have not added it to CUP but I added it to the Vp Media pack. The install was straight forward following Fatty Finns instructions and the CUP install should be the same. I tried to do a DCG campaign myself but had to abandon it due to AI crashing into the ground constantly.  I hope you have better luck!  It is a fun map.

Thanks vonofterdingen! I saw Fatty Finns instructions but I didn't see the _Tex folder in #WAW so that is where I was stumped. I will take another look at it.

I am at work right now but I will check it when I get home. I think the texture folder goes in mapmods/maps.

Yes, the folder goes directly under maps: \[IL-2 CUP directory]\#WAW\MAPMODS\Maps\_Tex

You'd be safer creating a JSGME install into #WAW - as you 'll prob need to delete a direct entry under MAPMODS when the new update arrives!

hi Magot
you asked: "have you in plan any next MTO map? ...."
yes- I am thinking of another map. But where?
I do love obscure places-  but I would also like the next map to be more useful to mission builders.
In that vein:  suggestions will be duly considered!  Is there any place we still lack?

Otherwise: thanks to this thread [above] for instructions on getting new maps into WAW.
I'm becoming a CUP newb myself - & just amazed at the fantastic world all our brilliant modders have created, in the CUP.
Being a sim pilot is hard work, though.    Much harder than my usual occupation here, as "sim plane-spotter" !
