"Then a golden mystery upheaved itself on the horizon - a beautiful, winking wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome nor Hindu temple spire...the golden dome said:  This is Burma, and it will be quite unlike any land you know about."
- Rudyard Kipling, Letters From the East (1898)

"...and as they descended into Burma for the first time they were struck by the colour of the Burmese foliage - the red and orange tints of the flowering trees which, in due course, we learnt to identify as the flame trees of the forest and the golden mohurs."
- a Beaufighter pilot

Two new maps:  BurmaLower_1942 & BurmaLower_1944
Made by using static objects found in SAS's Dark Blue World, plus the "oil well" object. 
Many objects were copy/pasted using other maps such as the new Khalkin Gol, Borneo, and Vietnam maps...thanks to the makers of all objects and maps.

Update August 4, 2016
Main changes:
Smoother runways, fixed some runway plate colors, new edmaps, changed Trees to Whitecat trees, added Nakhon Sawan airfield in Thailand.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Update August 20, 2016
Changes:
Added bumpH textures made by Battlin Bastard.
Added new CBI Trees made by Battlin Bastard.
Changed the large city texture (for Rangoon and other cities) so that the colors look a little better & streets complementary of vpmedia texture.
Fixed runway stay points for Mingaladon north/south runway - aircraft were disappearing and not parking after landings.
Fixed a few other small details that users may never notice ;)

------------------------------------------------------------

copy/paste the following lines into your "all.ini" file:

cztx_BurmaLower_1942 cztx_BurmaLower_1942/load.ini
cztx_BurmaLower_1944 cztx_BurmaLower_1944/load.ini

-------------------------------------------------------------

Place the two map folders "BurmaLower_1942 and BurmaLower_1944" into your Mapmods/Maps/... folder.

Textures are found in the _Tex folder.  Put "cztx" and "trees" inside your Mod's _Tex folder...mapmods/maps/_Tex/...
NOTE:  The trees textures included in this download are sized 2048.  If you do not want to use the 2048 visual MOD then you have the option to change the trees - see reply #104 here:  http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,31616.msg624282.html#msg624282

Many thanks to all modders in the community, especially map builders and texture makers.  Special thanks to Fabianfred who got this all started with the Thailand/Burma map.  ENJOY!

Hey CT

Have not heard from you for awhile

Looks like you have really been busy.

Always a pleasure to receive a work of art from you.  :D

and pretty damn close to home territory.

Looking forward to checking these out  ;D :D

We need a Spitfire boxed up in a crate in honor of these two beauties  ;D

That's a great idea but I am not fond of city textures.
Other parts look good

Thanks for the comments.  I've been working on this for the last 9 months!  haha!  It has taken up all my IL2 time...no mission building and no flying.  IMO this is much more impressive than the earlier versions of BurmaLower (DBW still has a very early version of this map!  which I was surprised to see.  Version 2.1 was the last).

I'd like to know if there are any major errors or unsightly object or road errors.  I've checked over the maps extensively but you just never know if you've overlooked something.  I know about some of the rivers that may still be on the sides of hills.  I've corrected most of of those already.

I debated with myself over city textures.  I decided to go with something that looks more like 3D representaion of buildings on the ground textures.  My reasoning is so that there won't have to be so many static objects... this is a very large map and already uses too much computer memory for some people.

I tried 3 different village textures for the smaller towns.  This final one (self-made) looks and works the best.  Agricultural fields/rice paddies were either self-made or copies of other's works but edited by myself.
I know it's not all that great looking but I'm pretty proud of this  ;D

edit:  Any conflicts with players using UP3 rc4?  any saving problems?

Unfortunately unloadable...do I have to put in the #DBW/MapMods folder? or Inside the jsgme-Mapmods folder? Tried both but it doesn´t seem to work...

Cheers Elmar
