Credits go to agracier and realdarko, the original makers of the map and all who worked on it before me.
I dont know all the names of those so please, if you worked on this map let me know and I will add your name to the credits.

Credits for this update are me and Mandrill who worked on the map_h file.

Let me tell you that this map's map_h was a nightmare to work with and Mandrill will attest to that.  :D It is still not perfect so
you may see these issues but there is almost no way to fix it without messing up the surrounding area.

As such, several airfields had to have their runway textures removed due to the issues with map_h. I also add the the missing take off points to the water runways that had everything but them and that kept them from being usable. I did the best I could with what I had to work with so I hope you all will enjoy it. Also, I know that some areas such as Iwo are not historical. I just used what was already there.

I'm just adding to the list of updates to this map and I welcome anyone to take my work and move forward with this map. Especially by removing all those idiotic " row of trees " objects.
They look so fake it's not even funny.
I may remove them in a later update but right now, I'm uploading this as a beta version for you all to test.


I hope you all enjoy it.

Also, I made this update using BAT so if you use another version of the game you will have to find any missing objects here on the SAS.


Update 1.2 I've done some more re texturing at Tokyo and other cities along with adding just bit more snow to Mt. Fuji. I also found a way to change the ugly " Row of Trees " with a less offensive looking one. Granted they are both those " card trees " but the new ones are not as  obvious as the original.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TREES.

Open the MAPMODS folder in this zip and then the 3do folder and take the Tree folder and add it to your 3do folder in your MAPMODS/3do folder.

Then MAKE A BACK UP COPY of your static.ini file and put it somewhere safe for later.

Open your static.ini file and search for " Trees&Plants " without the quotes of course. Copy and paste my text included in this zip over your original entry and save the file. Now you should have the less offensive trees.

Thank you for the update, Bombsaway 8), the map runs smoothly , there is also no problem with saving the mission, and the only missing object is:
buildings.House $ civilian_hangarNWE
which I found in the package with objects for the North Sea 0.5beta map.

Hi Bombsaway, I found few weird airfields:
(https://i.postimg.cc/dV7XNw19/Mar-19-2020-8-55-53-PM.png) (https://postimages.org/)
the first is Inazawa,
next is the airfield between Tsukuba and Namageta, and the airfield between Kanagawa and Yokahama
I'm not sure if this is my old computer or is it a map bug.

Best regards,
Piotrek

I believe it is this entry in your static.ini has this plate texture showing....


[buildings.Plate$Kronstadt7]
Title       Kronstadt7
Mesh        3do/Buildings/Russia/Piter/Kotlin/Kronstadt07/live.sim

I have the Russia folder but not the Piter/Kotlin so I cant find it

Post by: CzechTexan on March 19, 2020, 06:35:29 PM
yes, that's the one.  Apparently, it's not available in vpmodpack.  That's one reason why I did my own version of this map with airfields using only the BlankPlates object while deleting those Kronstadt plates.

Made a few updates to some hangers and made two of them new objects. The large open or closed hanger is from Molva we believe and the two smaller ones were from LaL_ROne. I believe someone after him added the Japanese flags and other decorations.

Original large hanger from Molva...

(https://i.postimg.cc/KYLg1BSZ/2020-03-26-at-19-59-39.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/3y8w6yx6)

Original from LaL_ROne.....

Orignal Japanese modification only the two rust/orange, not the one in the middle I did nothing to the one in the middle.

Great looking map, I am using it make a B-29 night mission over Tokyo.   I have noticed, that when I am at 5k plus altitude, the horizon looks like a dark void.  I understand that sight distance is limited, but it is such a stark difference from the lush green visible area of the map that it looks very unnatural.   I am running the latest BAT mod, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Thank you for the update, Bombsaway 8), the map runs smoothly , there is also no problem with saving the mission, and the only missing object is:
buildings.House $ civilian_hangarNWE
which I found in the package with objects for the North Sea 0.5beta map.

Hi, thank you for the work on this map, superb improvment, altough I still miss this object and have the North sea map installed and working just fine. Still can't save the mission, are there any separate objects to be downloaded?
Missing object:
Code: [Select]
buildings.House$civilian_hangarNWE

Ive been looking forward to trying this but am not having luck installing.

I have tried in UP3 RC4 and DBW no joy. I have also installed the objects mentioned here to 3do and static but cannot get missions to save.

Im not seeing other objects in my log file, but not sure that the mission editor is engaging the log when i run it since i cannot get past the save point.

My i ask, what mod pack are you guys typically running with this with success?

Thanks


EDIT:

I was able to do static checks and narrowed down, this is all i seem to be missing. The map shows in editor, i just cant save

Missing objects in your static.ini:

buildings.Plate$BlankParkingLarge



I have lots of Blank entries in my static.ini , but none suffixed 'large'

Any idea what pack has that? Im using UP3 RC4 right now. I could move this all over to DBW but im missing this there too.

Thanks

Title: Re: Iwo to Kanto Update. Update now to 1.2
Post by: missleman01 on August 16, 2020, 08:27:27 PM
Okay, some success, however im unsure if i have impacted the scenery anywhere since i dont know how the static blank entries are used.

I copied the entry that existed in the file and that did not have the 'large' suffix, and just created an entry for it referencing the same file

[buildings.Plate$BlankParkingLarge]
Title           Parking
Mesh            3do/airfield/Blank/Parking/mono.sim

That allowed me to save the mission and fly among Fujiyama and Kanto.

Using Steam 4.13 install, with UP 3 RC4, plus this fix and the buildings.House $ civilian_hangarNWE fix that was highlighted earlier in the thread finally fixed it for me.

If i notice problems ill note them, otherwise Id appreciate insight if there is any impact to what ive done by duplicating and renaming this entry.
