I'm sure this map will be a surprise to all  ;)

The Credits

The same credits as per NorthernBorneo_PreWar_42

New Credit

Dak Pilot   for giving a new suggestion of wood for the map

This map is a final version as everything was used from the previous Northern Borneo_PreWar_42 map works

NorthernBorneo_43_45 NorthernBorneo_43_45/load.ini


Hey There, Here is a Sas ModAct version. I included the little bug fix from the DBW version.
The wood loads up no problem and RA_imphal_airfield.tga is not a problem.
I've left in The Slot wood textures incase you want to change around.

You will need the sfs objects pack created by UP_boomer if this is a virgin install.

Allied Airfield Outer Island Bug Fix DBW/UP3

http://www.mediafire.com/?y8u0dbrw20z444r (http://www.mediafire.com/?y8u0dbrw20z444r)

So Sorry SAS peoples , I missed a re levelling and a clearing of some jungle.
B-24's will now just make a take off after going some metres off the runway. Twin engined bombers suit it moreso.
Also cleared some hills and jungle down at the Pontianak occupied IJN base so the 4 engined IJN flying boats can take off.
small sea planes at the moment no problems

Sorry about that I lost my head

Overwrite map_h and map_T then Bob's your Uncle  :D




The Japanese Occupation of Borneo

Once the Japanese had conquered all of the island of Borneo it was administered very differently as compared to the Western methods of administration.
The Dutch territory was governed by the Imperial Japanese Navy
Sarawak and British North Borneo was governed by the Imperial Japanese Army

The two governing bodies the IJA and IJN completely changed the Borneo map to suit the Japanese. The Japanese re named everything in Borneo including Labuan Island.

I am still seeking the Japanese name of Tarakan Island. If anyone knows please advice

The Map

New items to the map have been added such as three extra airfields which were built by the Japanese and POW's
POW/ Internment camps stationed at Sandakan and Labuan Island.
Labuan Island was a major stronghold base and this has been replicated.
Tarakan Island was also a major stronghold base and this has been replicated.
Other established towns important to the Japanese has been built up signaling thier occupation and further fortified.
The main POW/Internment camp at Kuching was a massive complex with 8 miles of barbed wire around it.
The two Dutch secret airfields were not officially used by the Japanese but each had a garrison to guard them.


The Load.ini

From Dak Pilots wood suggestion the only thing that has been changed to the map is the wood as seen below as an example.
The woods are in game textures and I had no problems loading up this load.ini

[WOOD]
Wood0 = forest/summer/Jungle0.tga
Wood1 = forest/summer/sk_Wood1.tga
Wood2 = forest/summer/sk_Wood2.tga
Wood3 = Italy_DF/forest/summer/itawood4.tga
Wood4 = Italy_DF/forest/summer/itawood4.tga

WoodMask2  = forest/summer/JForestMask.tga
WoodMask3  = forest/summer/JForestMask2.tga
WoodMiniMasks = forest/summer/MiniMask.tga
SideWood = forest/summer/ForestSide.tga

For the DBW/UP3 version I have included the Tree folder and land/pacific/BorneoNorth folder

Hi Thanks Bombs,

Just letting you and others know you will get some low frame rates flying over the huge Internment/POW camp near Kuching.
I used a number of TOW objects including the 8 miles of barbed wire.

Thanks for this, lovely detail and atmosphere, not sure I should say an interment camp looks great  ;) but detail is really good, the FPS drop is only over a very small area at certain views, so no biggie.

I cannot take credit for the wood I merely copy pasted from another map ( I think a mod map by Avala..sorry if that is wrong) to test and thought it looked good

I also notice that since the Japanese occupation a small amount of tree cutting took place around the airfield at Brunei  :) this fixes up a small bug from the pre 42 map that has AI aircraft hitting the treeline on final landing approach, anything larger than very light singles will crash on landing under AI control, this may be a problem for campaign builders in the 42 map

You can see a lot of hard work went into this, QMB's for pre42 map obviously work on this with a very little editting to the names and .mis files

Still seeking some info on Japanese air units info for Borneo

I know there were some recon units on Labuan Island flying Ki-49's

Can be difficult to find

There is alot more info on the Allied landings.

The Allies practically levelled Labuan island including the Japanese built airstrip which they did not want. However the Allies gave priority to the main airstrip near Victoria Town.

Another thing with this map is I changed the outer island airfield as a twin airfield Allied base to represent Morotai.

Bombers flew from Morotai to bomb Tarakan Island, Brunei or Labuan Island then flew down to Kuching across Borneo and back to Morotai.

I'll upload a link to a good book called 'The Occupation of Borneo'

The airstrips between Miri and Kuching were only used by the Japanese as emergency strips so they were left as is.

Don't worry Dakpilot your idea for the map  ;)

Cheers Kirby

Hi spdr,

Thought I'd give people the basis for populating.
I have to give mission builders something to do too  ;D

The objects are a good idea and am sure someone will put them to good use in missions.

If anyone wants to make some extra templates for missions Feel Free  ;D don't forget to provide a download  ;D

allied Airfield Bug Fix available.

So sorry SaS dudes and dudettes  :-[

Just overwrite map_h and map_T into your NorthernBorneo_43_45 map folder.

Cheers

Thanks for the update,  :)

would this patch be possible to be applied to the 42 map, to solve the landing aircraft hitting the last row of trees when landing at Brunei airfield? or would it have adverse effects to that map?

If your using DBW then make a folder called NorthernBorneo_43_45 and put it in your QuickQMBPro folder in the missions folder  "IL2Sturmovik/Missions/QuickQMBPro"  Then go make a quick mission for it such as a None00 and when you save the mission, save it to the NorthernBorneo folder and then when you go to you QMB you will see it in the list.

...and this:

This way you can make for all new maps easily..Quick Missions. :D
I use 00_PALMissionProCombo with 4.09m installs.

Good Luck with this map, IIRC I also had issues and could not engage it in 4.09m. ;)

Thank you so much for this map. I'm wondering how much more info could you get about allied-japan encounter over Brunei. Unfortunately even when living here I can't extract much information beyond hazy recollection of the elderly.

Labuan Island was an eventual base for the RAAF I think the famous Grey Nurse sharks teeth squadron spitfires were stationed there and they performed numerous missions around the surrounding island.
When making this map I did find a great pdf style book on the invasion of Borneo pre invasion, invasion, and occupation. I think I have it on another computer somewhere. It was really interesting how the Japanese split up the country under Navy and Army control.

Kirby, I hate to flop my ignorance out here for the world to see...
But there's an island off in the top right of this map that has a dirt airfield in the early version, a more developed one in the later.
I've been unable to establish exactly what island this is?
I know you mentioned airfields for playability.
Was this one?
Thank you, to any and all, who shed light on this.
EDIT: After wandering all over the internet, it appears the island in question is Mapun, aka Cagayan de Tawi-Tawi, aka Cagayan de Sulu. And while I find mention of American use of its harbor, and a wireless tower, I could find no mention of an airfield. Hmmm...
