I would like to suggest a WINTER version of the same map, for historical correctness: the Battle for Teruel was fought from December 15th, 1937 to February 20th, 1938, and the weather was horrible, with about 4 feet snow (120 cm) and temperature that fell down to 18 to 20 degrees Celsius UNDER Zero. it was a terrible winter.
So a winter version for your Ebro Map is, IMHO, most needed for Campaign building.

I tried making a map centered around Teruel only, also for the winter fighting of '37-'38. But it appears to be more of a job than at first would seem. Not only because of a dearth of good winter textures, but also because not all the areas would have been covered with snow - for instance going lower down to the coast one doesn't find snow in the winter.

This means the use of 2 sets of texture types : winter and a somewhat less greener landscape type, as well as intermediate textures so as not to make transitions too abrupt. So, this results in either simplified landscapes or awful looking areas where white and green are adjacent to each other.

And to make it a bit more difficult, much of the terrain around Teruel is very mountainous and hilly and sometimes that looks a bit unreal in Il-2 ... like gobs of whipped cream heaped all over the place. The try-out map I did of the area was a bit disappointing in the end, even though I had good hopes.

Teruel in the winter will be a harder map to make than one would think ...

To get a more detailed and useful idea of what the problem is, you should try using the command <shift>+<tab> at the same time, just after your map has failed to load. Somewhere in the multitude of lines, you will see a message-line with ERROR in it ... this will usually better describe what is wrong with the loading ...

You may perhaps wish to turn off the landscape when trying to read the lines ...  (use key F10 to toggle landscape on/off)

ton, could you explain what have you got wrong wiyh the map?, I would very much appreciate your findings.
Regarding the black spots you mention, probably it is due to your runing verssions 4.10 or 4.10.1, if so, please notice that, for the time being, this map is prepared for version 4.9 only (this is explained inthe front message). Thank you in advance.

The image you are showing in your screenshot is not the error message you get when you use the keys <shift>+<tab> when the map fails to load.

When you get the blue screen and the map fails to load, just use <shift>+<tab> and you will get a screen full of white text lines. Among those lines there will be a number of lines containing 'ERROR' (in capitals) ...

Those are the lines that will tell you why the map won't load.

Please disregard the error you have been posting screenshots of. It doesn't give you a clue of what is wrong specifically. You need to use <shift>+<tab> (at the same time).

In the download there are the _tex folder with textures...I just installed it this morning and work flawless!

When in such situation try to open the texture from the folder with any picture viewer program...if not open corrupted d/l and redownload the whole pack!
