Title: New Map - Narvik
Post by: agracier on January 21, 2011, 01:28:50 PM
Here's a map that has been on the burner for some time now, but finally got finished with the help of some autopopping. It is a map of Norway in the region of Narvik.

It makes use of mixx's wonderfully atmospheric textures in the main. There are 2 airfields on the map, but these are in non-historical locations. Historical locations were further inland, but since those areas are not on the map, it was thought best to place them on other locations.

The map mainly uses standard objects, but be advised that you will need the NorthSea objects pack as well. The best solution if you do have the NorthSea objects is to download and install Boomers collection of mod objects

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,12257.0.html

By installing this pack, in either 4.09 or 4.10, you will be assured of having virtually every new object made for use in Il-2.


Here is FMB view of the map.

Another masterpiece ag. Many thanks. :)

One slight bug: The right hand spawn point on the more westerly of the two airfields seems to be a touch off the runway.

Edit: And the dreaded black spikes in the sky, emanating from the buildings overlooking Bogen harbour.

Thank you for the beautiful map. Can I ask for a link to the Northsea pack objects (objects Waggles Nordsee) in a separate package?

I'm sorry but I don't have them as a separate pack. I installed them from Boomer's Objects pack.

If you use the last folder from Boomer's Object pack, that one contains the Northsea Objects, 00_Objects_III.7z ... you will however have to extract the appropriate lines for the static.ini file from Boomer's compiled static.ini as well.

agracier - i installed all the objects from 00_Objects_III.7z. Sorry - still can not save the mission - it's missing some objects. Any idea?
Title: Re: New Map - Narvik
Post by: agracier on January 27, 2011, 04:08:31 PM
OK ... if you are using 4.10 then you will need to install all the objects in Boomer's pack. It is very handy and I would recommend you do so in any case if you have 4.10.

I'd probably guess though that if you have 4.09, you might have missed some entries from the static.ini ...

You can try this out: Carefully, and I cannot stress this enough, carefully backup your working static.ini, and then try using the complete static.ini as supplied by Boomer ...

Or you can always install the complete pack of Objects by Boomer, even in 4.09. This will probably give you some double files of objects, but that does not effect much except possibly loading time for the game.

The map looks really beautiful, but I wonder why you haven't extend the area a few kilometers further to the northeast to include the important airfield of Bardufoss.

It was a question of having the satellite data available. Because of the high latitude, many sites don't have srtm data of polar and antarctic regions. The map however was a small set of satellite downloads that covered just the area now on the map, and nothing else adjacent ... so t was a question of being restricted by available srtm data ...

Tank you I was born and lived in Narvik for 19 years
In 1940 german bombers came from Vaernes Trondheim and was atacked by Blackburn Skua`s and Hurrycanes I belive further south There was a English squadron of Gladiators too. The Royal Navy came in and chased Germans mostly Destroyers in Rombaksfjord and Skjomen They all was lost While the polish lost one Destroyer "Gorm"

Just a thank-you, agracier!  I'd done without object mods since updating to 4.10 and enjoyed the short loading time for the game.  But I missed your beautiful work, as well as that of the other mapmaking geniuses.  Plus, Boomer made upload of all the object mods so dadgum easy that I caved.
Narvik map is a beauty.  Love those realistic airfield textures.
Thank you! :) :) :) :) :)

Yup, Boomer has made installing maps so much easier for everyone - makers and installers. He put a lot of work into compiling them all together. Hats off.

The airfield textures are retinted copies of airfields by compans and mixx ... they should get the credit for them. They are so useful and more realistic to use, especially in conjunction with Zuti's Friction mod ....

Those are NorthSea objects, and you can install them either separately from the North Sea map, or as part of Boomers complete collection of objects as meant for clean 4.10 installs.

I don't have time to look for the links right now unfortunately, but with this info you should be able to find the install packs.

Have you installed Boomer's objects packs? I also run a 410 SAS mod-activated game and have no problem with the map (or with any map...)

I should perhaps have included a French flag on the FMB maps to represent the French contingent that participated in operations at Narvik in 1940.

For those who wish to rectify this oversight, please find here a link for the 2 ed_m01/02 maps containing the French tricolor. Just download and overwrite existing files. Backup the old first, cause you just never know ...

These are from Mixx's Kkalkin-Gol map, the objects pack from that map.

But you are also perhaps better off installing Boomer's full Objects mod pack. This pack includes every object made for Il-2 so far.
