New actors file has helped.

And now General Staff can resume inspections of the fortifications around Perekop Trench.
So... where did they bury taxpayers monies?

From the air.



From the ground.

Thanks foe actors v3. I can confirm what Dimlee says : no objects missing now (static.ini checker) in BAT. Perfect !

This is a harbor scene I added to Ochakov for missions (but not part of static map objects).

..oh, men.. Ochakov harbor never looks like your vers in-real at 1941-1944..That was very little because of 2-3 m depths of the sea near the shore..
Here is a historical photo of Ochakov seaport  after the retreat of torpedo boats brigade in 1941:

And how it looks now:

Thanks for the photo.  On the map the harbor is blank.  I added harbor objects in the missions and I tried to make it look like the modern harbor as seen in Google maps.

Toobone is Black Sea expert, his advise is valid always.

Overall, common issue, isn't it.
For example, "infamous" Sevastopol's breakwaters copied by OM team from modern maps still remain on all Crimea maps as a sore in the eye... Completed maps, I mean.

In the photo, it seems like it is focused on the far-eastern-end of the harbor.  Look in the background - it seems there is more of the main harbor - but it's difficult to see.  Can this be verified?

Anyhow, I left the map's harbor empty of objects so users can populate it any way they want.

...and placing the river names along the rivers would be even better. I know I know it is a bit tedious, but it is the accepted practice in kartography, I think.
