Ok, where to begin???

I see you are here (At SAS) for almost a year. Welcome aboard!

P.S.: Capital letter are not a problem in and of themselves, but try to avoid yelling in the forums. (ALL CAPS, and angry emotes?) While I understand you were trying to impart urgency because you are stuck, it can be taken as rude. Many of us are more than willing to help with these small issues, but it takes time. Describe a problem in depth, and perhaps someone will come along and see it who may have an answer.

- - - - - - On to your problem - - - - - -



I assume from what i can tell in your description that you can't get Cyberolas' Smolensk to load at all. I will operate from this assumption. Please forgive if i misunderstood you.

If you need help with the WINTER update seen just before, i have not attempted it myself. 

Please also forgive me if I go a bit in-depth. It is only to be clear since I am not adding pics. However, a basic understanding of how the game's folder and file structures work would be very beneficial if you plan to add a lot of mods.

- - - - - - - - - -

So, this map is one of the easiest installs you will ever do. It is a re-texture of the stock, with no new stationary items needed. This means it will run on ANY game install! Which is epic.

This mod comes conveniently packed, ready to install as is.

- - - - - - - - - -

When you first download the original file from post #1, you will receive an RAR zipped file, with a folder inside named MODS.

This folder MODS is representative of ANY mod folder in ANY game type. In my game, the MODS folder is #SAS, in UltraPack type games it would be #UP#, etc. etc.

Open the MODS folder that came with your Download, it will contain a folder named MAPMODS.

Do not open this MAPMODS folder.

Now, open your games main folder, at its home location. My game lives on my desktop in a folder named "IL-2_Korea".

Inside of this is the primary IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 folder which houses my game.

Open your IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 folder, so that you can see all of its folders and files inside. The very first folder on top should be your MODS folder, again, #SAS in my case. Do not open your games MODS folder.


Now, this is the crucial part:


DRAG the MAPMODS folder from the downloaded RAR file onto your games MODS folder.

Allow to overwrite all when prompted. If you are NOT prompted, then you did it wrong. It will place all of the files, and folders in their proper places. This is because Cyberolas has done all the hard work and packed it just right for you!

Run your game and open the FMB, to view and use Cyberolas' EPIC handiwork!



Have fun!



P.P.S.: I will try to add the Winter version ASAP, maybe tomorrow. It will be more complicated.

@cheech420: If you want this Winter version also, please PM me. I'll help you if I'm able.

Take care.

No need to appologize, good luck with your install!

Cyberolas' maps are among the finest repaints available, and every one of them is well worth the headache. Stalingrad day version and Burma are perhaps my favorites.

If you need help further please feel welcome to ask.

His repaints are the easiest map installs there are. No headache.  ;)
No hassle around with dropping new objects in subfolders and no new entries in static.ini file since he uses stock objects from default V4.09.
And all his textures per map are collected in one folder.


@cheech420,
-Drop the downloaded folder 'East' in your modded installation in a folder named '_Tex'.
(_Tex is located: the mods folder in your modded install/mapmods/maps/_Tex)

-Drop the downloaded folder 'Smolensk' in your modded installation in a folder named 'maps'.
(maps is located: the mods folder in your modded install/mapmods/maps)

-Start up game and... play!  :)
