Banff-Narvik Map
« on: January 15, 2019, 06:42:13 PM »

After MANY years this map is finally ready for download. This map was passed down through many different hands until it came to Ragnathor who shared it with me. We decided to work on it and get it released so others may enjoy it. It's been sitting too long.

This map is based on an original by agracier for a clean and current BAT install with expansion packs up to 3.5 Musketeers.
 It is a very large map featuring the Nordland and Lofoten regions of Norway and the Northeast region of Scotland.

 From the original this map has been expanded 350km West of Norway and now includes a small area of Scotland, the whole landscape and coastlines have been remodelled, re- textured and re-populated to create what is now a huge map.

 It is not historically, geographically or geologically correct but the important areas such as Narvik, the docks at Peterhead, RAF Banff, RAF Peterhead and FAA Rattray have been faithfully constructed as far as possible from period photos.
 The roads have been laid by hand and all vehicle waypoints must be set manually.

Please be aware that this is a very large and very detailed map using 2048 x 2048 textures and will play with different results on different machines and different graphics cards etc.

This map was made using BAT. If you don't have BAT, I can't help you with missing objects or textures. You will have to use the tools here on the SAS to locate the objects or textures you may be missing with older versions.
It's not impossible to do so.

So, without further delay...….

 



















The credits are in the download.

Any negative comments of whom may have worked on this map before Ragnathor and I came to work on it will be deleted.

Our only hope is that everyone will accept this map as a gift that many people have worked on and took so many hours, days, weeks and months out of their lives to give something to the community.

Ragnathor sent me a link to some of the objects that some may be missing.

Thanks very much for this, I look forward to using it.  I visited Banff after reading the book "Banff Strike Wing" about the RAF attacks across the North Sea.

The real artist is Ragnathor. The thanks goes to him. :)
