That's unfortunate indeed!

Provide more details if that doesn't do it.

Something tells me you spent 5 seconds in that topic... What is it you don't understand?

Go to controls, scroll down to "HOTAS CONTROL", is the mouse wheel assigned (probably by mistake) to any control there? Yes? - Remove it!

I mean no disrespect but: try harder. You can do it.

Review the last few posts, make sure to understand it all, search the boards if you don't know what HOTAS is. Take your time before coming back for more. Explain what you tried in more than one sentence. I am 99% sure the solution to your problem has already been provided.

Your map is great
I was just curious about a solution
If you are impatient then don't answer!  :P
I was polite
Otherwise, the problem is caused by (# JTW_00-PALsVisualMOD9-v4122) mod
I inactivated and the problem resolved!

Next Generation MAP (NG-MAP) Mod v3.0

There is something for everyone in this update. Most of the changes went under the hood for NG-MAP to be more "multiplayer friendly" but offliners will also find some of the new features useful, I hope!



The mod now (truly) complies with mission/campaign difficulty settings.

To have access to in-game icon features deactivate "Map & Icons" difficulty settings at will (cannot be changed during a mission/campaign):

• Icons & Map > No Map Icons (A)
• Icons & Map > No Player Map Icon
• Icons & Map > No Minimap Path

(A) Enabled? Radars will also get disabled


To have access to the different sections of the Actor Viewer deactivate at will settings from the "Views" difficulty window (cannot be changed during a mission/campaign):

• Views > No External Views
• Views > No Player's Own View
• Views > No Enemy Views (A)
• Views > No Friendly Views (A & B)
• Views > No Aircraft Views
• Views > No Carrier Views (C)

(A) Enabled? The NEUTRAL menu will also get disabled since some actors can spoil the surroundings
(B) Enabled? You can "pin" a location but you will not get to see the landscape
(C) Enabled? Applies to any ship, Aircraft Carrier or not


OFFLINE PLAY

By default, Hostile icons are hidden in the map every time you start a new mission. It is up to you to enable Hostile icons using the in-game NG-MAP menu. Knowing enemy positions spoils all offline fun, in my humble opinion.

MULTIPLAYER

By default, Hostile icons are visible in the map every time you start a new mission (unless the "Icons & Map > No Map Icons" difficulty setting is enabled). That way users with and without NG-MAP will play under the same conditions.

Online Squadrons can employ NG-MAP if they wish to do so. While there isn't a foolproof method to prevent friendly (or hostile) cheating we can certainly make it a little more challenging and in v3.0 I tried my best to prevent players from taking any advantage on their own.

A true cheat is when a player takes advantage of a 'feature' others don't have. If all members of the squadron use NG-MAP none will be cheating: all of you will be having access to the exact same set of tools. Online play among friends is about respect and honesty. That's the only way to have good fun.

For online play I highly recommend to at least enable/activate "Views > No Enemy Views" and "Views > No Friendly Views". This move will not only disable most of the external views but it will also deactivate NG-MAP "Targeting System" (View pinned location and lock onto hostile icons).


INTELLIGENCE SERVICES

The Static Camera object can be used by mission creators to mark key locations: Open FMB, load or create a mission, insert a Static Camera and set it to the same color of an army. Use this method to mark relevant locations in the map.

When playing the mission, users will see X marks wherever you placed the cameras. As the mission creator, it is up to you to give spot marks a meaning. You can use the briefing to explain what a X mark means. Use grid coordinates to reference a sport mark. Players will only see spot marks of their same army/color. The spot marks will be displayed in both the briefing and during the mission (as Targets).



"Intel Services" will work in any game mode, offline or online. You can use this feature as long as you have access to the mission file. In order to maintain compatibility with any other missions and users with or without NG-MAP, if the Camera army is set to "none" (game default), nothing will happen.

This is as much as I can do to provide new and (hopefully) useful features compatible with any version of the game or modpack. New objects would require dealing with *.ini entries and I want to keep this mod as little intrusive and as easy to use as possible.


SMALL MAP

Since v3.0 you can make the Standard Map and the Combat Mode grid a tad smaller by enabling the "Small Map" option. This parameter is permanent and it is saved to the [game] section of the conf.ini file as MapPadSmall.




MAP TRANSPARENCY

Map transparency can be adjusted from the map menu. You can change transparency for both the Minimap (follow mode) and the fullscreen map independently. The transparency setting is permanent and it is saved to the [game] section of the conf.ini file as MapPadAlpha and MapAlpha respectively. The previous Mouse right click + Mouse wheel method from v2.0 is now obsolete and therefore no longer available.

Hi Arquillos,

I know my friend. Stock IL-2 map shows enemies by default. Why? I have no idea. You are forced to play either with all or with no icons. Middle-ground anyone? What this game needs is a "Map & Icons > No Enemy Icons" option. Why was this never implemented? I have no idea. Why nobody ever complained? I have no idea either, but most games I play or played hide my enemies on maps for a simple reason: excitement! I am happy to have my squad mates on the map and target points but enemies? Why would I want that? Sorry but my brain does not process it :D

I explained before I try to offer something new, different, better if I can. I understand you want all icons and I have nothing against it. You are one click away from unveiling enemy icons. You play 2, 3, 5 missions a day? That's 5 clicks. Not much asking for in my opinion. In any case, your persistence has been noted ;)

To zoom in and out of the mini map and the fullscreen map you must use the mouse wheel.

If that doesn't work, it is because the mouse wheel is assigned to an axis in the HOTAS CONTROL section of the Controls window.
