Map of Serbia (part of former Yugoslavia) Unfinished.
« on: March 12, 2011, 10:32:16 AM »




I want to present you a map of Serbia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbia

More precise central part of Serbia, that is some 2/3 of its territory. I started with the whole Yugoslavia, but it was too big. Serbia was part of Yugoslavia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SFRJ

Which was till WW2 known as Kingdom of Yugoslavia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Yugoslavia

Germany and the Axis countries attacked Yugoslavia on 6th of april in 1941.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_Yugoslavia

As a part of their Balkans Campaing against Yugoslavia and Greece.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balkans_Campaign

Capital city Belgrade, was heavily bombed by Luftwaffe

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_Belgrade_in_World_War_II

Also later in war by the Allies

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_bombing_during_World_War_II

The Yugoslav royal army and Yugoslav air force gave heroic efforts with defense in so called "April War"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Yugoslav_Air_Force

but of course that was in vain against mighty Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht

Later, there was people uprise with Comrade Tito as a leader

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josip_Broz_Tito

What opened so called Yugoslav front

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugoslav_Front_(World_War_II)

With well known Tito's partisans

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugoslav_Partisans

Later in the war they even took part in some aerial operations

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balkan_Air_Force



Enough about history now map  :D

I labeled it "unfinished" because it is not sure that I will manage to finish it. So, that is "Unfinished" instead "beta".

Map uses only Slovakia objects, so you need only 4.09 version for it (works under 4.10 also), no other mod building packs needed.
Majority of the textures are new, and everyone of them have corresponding tree and bump map. Map makers feel free to use them at your own will. It uses Zuti's friction mod (if you want your take offs and landings to be smooth).

There is also nice effect on the ground thanks to Bump maps so I suggest to try the map in various "time and weather" settings. Looks beautifully in 4.10.

In it is not finished, so some textures are missing, like airport texture. But in texture folder you will find more of them that are not used. Objects are on little village and smaller town textures, but not on big cities. No roads, railways and bridges, and there are glitches and errors, but consider thats why it is "unfinished".

But, after all, its flyable and what was most important to me, looks little bit different than other IL2 maps.

- Map:

http://www.mediafire.com/?u385cwq5y50g35k

- Textures version 2. Brighter, green is brighter and more yellow. If you didnt like original textures, think that they are too dark or too blue, just replace them with these.

http://www.mediafire.com/?9u628u2c356eale


- If someone wants it just brighter, use this. Just drop it in texture folder (MODS\MAPMODS\Maps\_Tex\Avala\serbia)

http://www.mediafire.com/?uiab4h22c00ig7p

On page 3 of this thread is also explanation how to make ground brighter or darker, according to your likings.

- Uufflakke's version of textures. For those who prefer more brighter land and different shades.

http://www.mediafire.com/?2ew7x0psnwo37o4

- Also, for the ones who run simulation in "excelent" mode do the folowing:

Open "load.ini" file, find this line:

Quote
Tree0 = Avala/serbia/SrbijaDrvo.tga

And change it to:

Quote
Tree0 = Avala/serbia/SrbijaDrvoTL.tga

(Mixx's fix  ;) )



BIG THANKS TO THE WHOLE OF SAS COMUNITY(for all the knowledge that I stole here  :D ), ESPECIALLY AGRACIER FOR HIS AUTOPOP TUTORIAL. ALSO 102ND-YU SQUADRON FOR THEIR HELP AND TESTING, AND ESPECIALLY 102ND-YU BOGIDA FOR HIS TECHNICAL AND HISTORICAL HELP. (thanks also to Oleg, DT and everyone whom ideas I might have inadvertently stole).

I don't have copyright or any other claims on this map, in a part or as a whole. You can use textures made by me on your own will.


Enjoy boys (and girls too  :) )

I have checked my correct installation 2 times.
I have the map correctly installed. and it is working perfect in my UP201 4.09.

I have checked the Tex_ and objects files 2 times and I still have the following issues seen below.

Trees and Houses in rivers - can anyone tell what I did wrong on my install?

I think you didn't do anything wrong. As this is still an unfinished map these things are inevitable. Avala must be aware of this issue.
If you take a closer look at two of his screenshots, you can see houses and trees in the river also.

Thanks a lot, it looks great, Avala.. When I read "Avala", "new map" -I always must think of Benghalli, my favourite island in IL-2 (with Hawaii)- and those gorgeous Benghalli textures. ;D. :)

I'm not sure what are you writing about...But
You have messed your all.ini file.
All the .ini files should have a word load.
Check that.
Do you have a backup?
+maybe you have too many maps. They can't fit to screen...

It is unfortunate reallity fact... that this part of world is notorious for spring time flooding, especially rivers Sava and Danube.

Even in 21 century it is still a huge spring problem:

Flooding is part of life at rivers Sava and Danube:


70-80 years ago it was even worse...
For example one huge river island "Veliko ratno ostrvo" at capital Belgrade would simply disappear under Danube river:




Capital Belgrade (where river Sava meets Danube) was frequently flooded:






Even king Aleksandar spent some time visiting flooded willages prior to WW2:


So if you want realistic spring map of Serbia 80 years ago... there it is!

Great work Avala, great mountains model... ;)

I think you mean maps don't show up ingame in FMB? I used to have the same after I added some more map entries in my all.ini. For whatever reason after a few start ups of the game I got a new blue row with the new mapnames in FMB. So maybe it will appear also in your modded IL2.
If not then there is another solution: open the all.ini and disable the maps you never use by adding two slashes in front of the mapname.
For instance: Kiev Kiev/load.ini becomes //Kiev Kiev/load.ini. So the mapname won't show up anymore in FMB.
By doing this to the maps you hardly play you make space for the latest entries. If you want to play let's say the Kiev map again, just delete the two slashes.  ;)
