BAT MAP Regions sorting report
« on: November 19, 2018, 12:57:12 AM »

Regions sorting recommends about Maps composed in B.A.T.
(Not about maps' own contents inside. Only about Sorting in MAPMODS/all.ini and i18n/MAPS.properties)


--- B.A.T. v3.5 , on 19th/Nov./2018 ---

Map name (i18n): Africa-Magallanes - MrOblongo
Map index (all.ini): Magallanes  Magallanes/load.ini
Current region: THE_AFRICAN_CONTINENT
Recommend New region: THE_SOUTHERN_OCEANS


Map name (i18n): The Aleutians - agracier
Map index (all.ini): Aleutians  Aleutians/load.ini
Current region: OTHER_REGIONS
Recommend New region: PACIFIC_AND_ASIA


---

No real maps, But fictional stock maps and their modded ones ..... no region information from the first but .....

Map name (i18n): The Western Desert -1C/Maddox
Map index (all.ini): Western_Desert  desert/load.ini

Map name (i18n): The Western Desert -Redko
Map index (all.ini): R_desert(redko)  redko_desert/load.ini

Map name (i18n): The Sands Of Time - 1C/Maddox
Map index (all.ini): Sands_of_Time   SandsOfTime/load.ini

Map name (i18n): The Sands Of Time - Redko
Map index (all.ini): redko_SandsOfTime   redko_SandsOfTime/load.ini

Current region: THE_MIDDLE_EAST
Recommend New region: THE_AFRICAN_CONTINENT

Those 4 maps ground - sea positions look like North Africa and Mediterranean like Libya or Algeria.

---

Duplicated entry of the same map in different regions

Map name (i18n) - in the correct region: Africa-Madagascar - agracier
Map index (all.ini) - in the correct region: ag_Madagascar ag_Madagascar/load.ini
Correct region: THE_AFRICAN_CONTINENT

Map name (i18n) - duplicated in the wrong region: No Entry
Map index (all.ini) - duplicated in the wrong region: Madagascar(ag) ag_Madagascar/load.ini
Duplicated wrong region: PACIFIC_AND_ASIA

---

--- i18n/MAPS.properties entry Naming bug --- on 22th/Nov./2018

Map name (i18n) - wrong: Southeast India - BB
Map index (all.ini): SouthEastIndia(BB)   BB_South-East-India/load.ini
Current region: PACIFIC_AND_ASIA

Map name (i18n) - correct: Southeast Indonesia - BB
---

--- i18n/MAPS.properties entry Naming bug (Author's name correction) --- on 26th/Nov./2018

Map name (i18n) - wrong:
Hokkaido North Japan Summer - 1C/Maddox
Hokkaido North Japan Winter - 1C/Maddox
Map index (all.ini):
HB_Hokkaido_Summer  HB_Hokkaido/load.ini
HB_Hokkaido_Winter  HB_Hokkaido/wload.ini
Current region: PACIFIC_AND_ASIA

Map name (i18n) - correct:
Hokkaido North Japan Summer - Hispano-Belgian
Hokkaido North Japan Winter - Hispano-Belgian
---

--- i18n/MAPS.properties entry Name for more detailed area information --- on 26th/Nov./2018

Map name (i18n) - current: Australia Darwin 1942 - farang65
Map index (all.ini): Darwin_42  Darwin_Dili_Ambon_42/load.ini
Current region: PACIFIC_AND_ASIA

Map name (i18n) - recommend: Australia Darwin, East Timor, Ambon 1942 - farang65
---

--- i18n/MAPS.properties entry line "&" special character trouble ---

In i18n/MAPS.properties entry , the character "&" means a special function displaying an under-bar with the next alphabet on menu trees.
So, in using "&" character as meaning of the word "and", the displayed result of the menu doesn't show the first hope.

Code: [Select]
ag_uf_Madrid Madrid - agracier&UF

Manchuria(TAM) Manchuria(TAM) - 1C/Maddox&TAM

Okinawa_Japan_Korea Okinawa Japan & Korea - Unknown

Korea_Summer(Whc)               Korean Theatre Summer(whc) - 3BG&Whitecat

Ankoria                         Ankoria & Pagadona - farang65

Those lines are shown like here in the game.


Better to replace by another character like "," or "/" , or using alphabetical word "and" for the purpose.

One map is mis-named. It appears in the FMB drop-down list "Southeast India" but is actually South Indonesia.

Thanks, vonofterdingen.
I've checked only a half amounts of maps composed in BAT v3.5 .
That's a great great map accumulation.

So, I added vonofterdingen's report in my 1st post with a Google map screenshot.
My recommend as a new i18n/MAPS.properties entry text is "Southeast Indonesia - BB".

Another question.

all.ini
Code: [Select]
HB_Hokkaido_Summer HB_Hokkaido/load.ini
HB_Hokkaido_Winter HB_Hokkaido/wload.ini
i18n/MAPS.properties
Code: [Select]
HB_Hokkaido_Summer Hokkaido North Japan Summer - 1C/Maddox
HB_Hokkaido_Winter Hokkaido North Japan Winter - 1C/Maddox
These Hokkaido maps might not be made by "1C/Maddox".
Any of stock games of "1946" from ver 4.07m to ver 4.13.4m don't contain the maps.

I don't have information about its true author.
..... Mr. "HB" ?


When its author information will be given, i18n/MAPS.properties' lines can be fixed.

Hi ! I think HB is for Hispano-Belgian team, and the original link might very well be this one.

Helpful information, Gatrasz.
Thank you.  ;D

How about new i18n/MAPS.properties lines for ?
My idea:
Code: [Select]
HB_Hokkaido_Summer Hokkaido North Japan Summer - Hispano-Belgian
HB_Hokkaido_Winter Hokkaido North Japan Winter - Hispano-Belgian

Or something better ?

Next topic about "Darwin" maps' i18n/MAPS.properties .

Even not wrong region / wrong name or description , but not strict information given , I think.

all.ini
Code: [Select]
Darwin_42(NTL)                  NTL_Darwin_1942_43/NTL_Darwin_1942_43_load.ini
Darwin_42                       Darwin_Dili_Ambon_42/load.ini

i18n/MAPS.properties
Code: [Select]
Darwin_42(NTL)                  Australia Darwin 1942-43 - Neil Lowe
Darwin_42                       Australia Darwin 1942 - farang65

Current i18n/MAPS.properties text may give players an image as "2 maps will cover almost same area" .

But much different areas they do ......


My recommend: change farang65's version map name text to show players its covering area.

plan 1
Code: [Select]
Darwin_42                       Australia Darwin, Timor Dili, Ambon 1942 - farang65

plan 2
Code: [Select]
Darwin_42                       Australia Darwin, Timor Sea, Banda Sea 1942 - farang65

Which plan do you like ? or some other recommends ?

Hi.

DarwinTimor-LesteAmbon_42

There you go

Cheers,
Kirby (Farang65)

Thanks your comment.

I think ....
"Timor-Leste" is current country name from 2002y , so not so fit to map's name in 1942y.
Finally vampire_pilot's decision ..... in English, in showing Geography of Islands = Eastern Timor / in showing Territory name of 1942 = East Timor.
Temporary I wrote the recommend of i18n/MAPS.properties line:
Australia Darwin, East Timor, Ambon 1942 - farang65


 --- ---

All updated recommends are pasted in my 1st post.

I've looked into almost all maps in B.A.T. v3.5 .
No more bug name or category are found in my sight.

(Besides small taste difference around fictional maps or JetEra maps' categorizing treatment.)
