A 12-mission campaign based on historical events in which you will fly an I-16 Type28 in the battles for Crimea and Sevastopol from September-December 1941.

By September 1941 the Germans had control of Kiev and were pushing further eastward toward Kharkov. The Soviets still had control of the Crimea and used it as an air base to bomb the oil fields in Romania. Hitler decided that he must control the Crimea in order to control the Black Sea and protect the oil fields. Fierce fighting erupted as the Germans tried to enter the Crimea through the Perekop Isthmus.

Fight for the Perekop Isthmus in September through December 1941 with the Soviet amphibious landings at Kerch and Feodosiya.

***Must have the I-16type28 aircraft***

This campaign uses the stock Crimea and stock 4.13.1 Black Sea maps.
This campaign was made using the VP MODPACK which has an excellent retexture of the Crimea map by vpmedia.

You must have the retexture for the 4.13.1 Black Sea map found here:

Good job!
Maybe you need it. From January to June 1942, the cruiser Krasny Krym delivered military cargoes and reinforcements to Sevastopol, completing a total of 98 flights with the other ships of the Black Sea Fleet. The same type cruiser Chervona Ukraine was sunk on November 12, 1941 at the Count's pier in the harbor of Sevastopol.

Gratitude for your New Company. You did an amazing lot for the Il-2 game.
You have many completed maps (Caucasus, Burma, Vietnam ... .. The last map of the Carpathians), the companys. Volume of your work is impressive

Thank you again for your update of the map of the Black Sea.
Good luck!

Thank you Mixx!  Your acknowledgement is much appreciated.  Although, the new Carpathians map is not made by me.  It is made by Uzin by my request  ;D

Dimlee, sorry but I do not know if this is compatible with BAT.  However, it should work with any setup that includes the Black Sea map in its list of maps.  If your setup does not have that map, then it can always be downloaded and installed by using the link in my first post. 

Good luck to all and thanks to all for the kind words.

No, you haven't got I-16 type 28 in BAT.

I managed to mod my BAT install (first time ever!) and got the type 28 running.
I really like the missions but sadly I got stuck down South West where the I-16's line up and takes off straight into buildings.
But the missions are very well made and quick into action.
Love it! The missions I got that is :)
Top Notch.

First time I got airkills in an I-16 against 109's, you could have seen me land with a surpriced face haha.
(I'm the kind of dogfighter that would lose against an I-16 when flying an F-16, just saying)

If anyone knows if this line-up is fixable, please let me know (mainwhile I will fly that winter version up at Leningrad).

Hi theOden,
I looked at all the missions and could not see the error you are talking about.  Maybe I overlooked it  :-X
Can you tell me which mission it is?
Title: Re: Battle for Crimea 1941
Post by: theOden on February 02, 2018, 02:50:15 PM
I would guess it's a BAT issue, maybe they have another version of the map?
(I'm pretty new to this so I'm just shooting assumptions here)

pictures reduced but I hope needed info can be seen.

The pictures are not showing and I still don't know which mission it is.  Can you give more details?

I'm guessing it's an airfield on the Black Sea map.  I do not believe airfields on the map have ever been altered so it should be the same in B.A.T.

I checked the missions and they all lineup in "pairs" to takeoff.

Tried to make the links into attachements but I think I failed that too.

Missions is first one from Sevastopol of November 5, 1941.
But if my pictures don't show I don't think there's much we can do, and please, don't put too much time into this since I think it's a BAT issue and I already have fun up north east of Leningrad in your other creation :)

Well, if there really is a problem with the missions then other users could have the same problem.  I'll have another look.

Hi community. CzechTexan, there is a problem here. The missions I've had issue with are 7, 8. As theOden mentioned, the planes are not lined up on the runway on that map, and fly straight into the pens. I had a look at the mis files in FMB, and it seems all the aircraft, static included, are in the wrong positions. the orientation of the map is not aligned with them. I'm playing it: 4.12  with vpmodpack , 5.30, etc. I thought maybe we had to taxi to take-off . that was mission 7 but its the same for 8

Hi all.  I found the Problem!
It seems you may be using a different version of the BlackSea map (pre-4.13) see below...

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4747/26782995628_6b19e98c1e_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/GNHRuG)BlackSea_Other (https://flic.kr/p/GNHRuG) by CzechTexan (https://www.flickr.com/photos/152232688@N03/), on Flickr
Notice the industrialized area by the airfield?  Well, that is not there in the 4.13 version and also notice one of the airfield icons is actually inside the village - see below...

This is what it looks like in my stock 4.13 game:
(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4617/40612380002_86672d3976_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/24SM4Ej)BlackSea_413 (https://flic.kr/p/24SM4Ej) by CzechTexan (https://www.flickr.com/photos/152232688@N03/), on Flickr

And this is what it looks like with new textures:
(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4747/26782996188_276787da00_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/GNHREm)BlackSea 4.13 (https://flic.kr/p/GNHREm) by CzechTexan (https://www.flickr.com/photos/152232688@N03/), on Flickr
...Compare this screenshot with theOden's above.

How to Fix this...

Go to this link... https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,54063.0.html

1. Download the map files from the Mediafire link there.

2. Unzip the files and copy/paste the Textures (BlackSea & BlackSea_winter folders) into this sequence...
#SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS/_TEX/land/summer/

3. Copy/paste the map files (BlackSea folder)(the one that includes "actors" file) into this sequence...
#SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS/

4. Add the following lines to your All.ini file:

BlackSea BlackSea/load.ini
BlackSea_winter BlackSea/load_w.ini

(You may already have one line already if you are able to load the OLD version but you will have to add the line for the Winter map to have that one).
________________________________________________________
That will give you a summer and winter map that is updated to 4.13.1 standard but with new textures that can be used in a 4.12 setup like the VPmodpack.

I apologize for any inconveniences.  I must have forgotten or was unaware that the older version was in the VPmodpack and did not know that it was in B.A.T.

So, in order for the campaign to work, the 4.13.1 map version must be installed.
