Hi Squashman great map however I initially had a [MAP2D] error due to your map folder having the wrong name??

It should be sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon_sea and not sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea

Cheers

Thanks Mick - grateful you spotted it

Really sorry - very careless of me - in fact it's a typo in the all.ini entry.
My standard naming convention is to hyphenate within the same phrase and underscore to connect phrases.

So the all.ini entry should be
 
 sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea       sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea/load.in

However, the way you suggest obviously works just as well.


Apologies again  :-[

Squashman,

I thought I followed all the install instructions but when I try to load this map I get the following message " section [MAP2D] not found in 'maps/sq_Coral-Sea_Solomon-Sea/load.ini " and nothing loads. Any thoughts/suggestions on where to find this item?

I'm in BAT 3.2 SP3.

Thanks.
Mechanic


Hi Mechanic - see the previous post, and change the all-ini entry accordingly.

Really sorry guys - I'm correcting the readme in the download asap

Edit. readme in download now corrected

NOTE ALSO - in BAT you may have missing objects or, more likely, missing static.ini entries - see these threads to get them

Awesome job Squashman  ;D :D ;)

Can't wait to download this on Sunday when I get back From Laos.

Looking forward to flying on it.

Cheers,
Kirby



Thanks Kirby - see above posts and note the typo in the all.ini  ;D

No worries squashman as you say it would have been easier for me to change the all.ini entry

Hi ! Thank for your great work.
But I could not help myself for checking Barakoma area:


Laipari Island appears to be missing/..rather fused in. It is separated from Vella Navella by a narrow strait.
Hope you don't mind this observation, but I have always been interested in this area.
( ag New Georgia map for 409 ).
 https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,8484.msg105096.html#msg105096
best shape view:
                                                                                                              Here the coral reefs must be filtered to view the actual shape of the Island, but becomes then very accurate.

Is this feature feasible ?  ... on such large scale map ... I understand if work is done and final.

Hi Hubberaranz

Thanks for pointing out that detail. Always grateful for topographical information.
It will be fixed at next update in a few weeks.

Nice work on the Vella Lavella map by the way  ;D

Squashman,

A thing of beauty! The revised all.ini entry did the trick - and the static.ini additions made the missions for this map (and for your Eastern Borneo-Java map) now savable for me. Thanks for this(these) terrific map efforts.

Had a look at it yesterday.

Awesome work Squashman.  :D ;)

any typo can be really annoying for a mapper anywhere in the load.ini with textures,  texture tga names and all.ini etc.

You go crazy one day looking for the problem. You usually find it the day after.  ;D

Cheers,
Kirby

That's some big water!  It's great to see Rabaul added with the Solomons.  Thanks for doing that.  I would have been OK seeing Rabaul with just the top half of the Solomons but this is so much more  ;D  good work.
