Hi Ship_Rek. This is a great map, and runs fine in BAT, but you need to know the structure to get it to run.

1. Currently only four maps available.

2. Ignore the #SAS folder.

3. BAT is modular, there are four historical eras, each with their own folder: DOF3, TGA3, WAW3, JTW3. To install Aug_42 map in WAW3, see below. If you want the map(s) in all the eras, you need to repeat the process below for each era folder in turn, and for each of the four maps. I ALWAYS use the jgsme BATMODS folder to add items such as this so that I can roll back if needed, but that is up to you.

4. When you unzip the map download you should have a parent folder called 'sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea_Aug-42' containing a folder named 'MODS' and three text files. You do not need the HSFX static entries.

5. Rename the MODS folder to #WAW3. You can go into the folder and delete the 'extra 3do for HSFX' folder - not required.

6. Copy the main folder you have unzipped i.e. 'sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea_Aug-42' into the BATMODS folder in your game.

7. Find the WAW static.ini. Path is: #WAW3/STD/com/maddox/il2/objects/.

8. Make the required changes to static.ini as detailed in the downloaded text files (back up static.ini first).

9. Add the appropriate entries to the all.ini file (inside the #WAW3/MAPMODS/MAPS folder). In this case: sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea_Aug-42         sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea_Aug-42/load.ini

9. Enable  'sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea_Aug-42' in the BATMODS folder. Hopefully the map should now work.

I'm running IL-2 1946 4.12 with BAT 4.1

I'm trying to get this installed and am "stuck at the beginning". The install instructions at the start of the thread have me confused:

1. The thread says that there are six versions of the map, but only give links to download the first four. Are the last two maps not released yet?

2. My brand new BAT 4.1 install has both #SAS and #WAW3 folders. Which one do I install these maps in? What is the difference between these two folders?

3. The instructions say to edit your static.ini file but don't tell you where it's located. I don't see a static.ini file either included with the downloads, or already existing within the /#SAS/MAPMODS/

Sorry, I'm new to modding 1946 and nothing in my DCS modding skill set seems to be translating to this sim.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hello!
I have a backup for BAT 4.0 - 4.1, I installed it in my own way, maybe it will be useful.
If you do not have other cards installed, then simply unpack the BAT to the root with replacement.

G'day Guys

A question for Squashman or anyone with the knowledge.

The taxiways at Piva and other airfields at Bougainville, do they have sand or crushed coral taxiways?

Good Question
I believe Torokina and Piva were Marsden Matting over sand
The Japanese used a variety of materials e.g. at Buin (Kahili) coral and bitumen was used

I finally added IL2ge and have to say that this map is one of the best to use it with. Absolutely breathtaking and highly enjoyable. Thank you for these.
