OK multiple apologies if Im asking this as a newb but I have just returned to IL2 1946 after many years and am frankly amazed at the work modders have done..

I have so far added quickly VP and IL2 selector and have had no issue adding skins etc but when it comes to map I thought this would be an excellent starting point..

So I downloaded this  and tried to follow the instructions in the thread "how to install maps mods"

But as an example I simply can not find this map when I try to run a quick mission  (or anything else)

Structure wise I placed the textures in #SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS/_Tex

I placed the main folder ag_Makin in #SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS/

I then added the line ag_Makin ag_Makin/load.ini to the load ini in #SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS

but Im not seeing it - have I missed a blatant issue??

ighten, did you save the Load.ini file?  You probably did but we have to cover all bases ;)
Are you able to load the map in the Full Mission Builder aka FMB?
if so, if you are trying to find quick missions for the map... then it's possible there are not any Quick missions for that map.

ah yes slight schoolboy error I forgot there has to be a Quick mission  - however even though I can actually see the maps description/title in Full Mission builder lists I get the following Java error when I select it.

Java lang Runtime Exception Landscape ag_Makin/load.ini loading error

Just dawned on me - does this log mean I need to install a texture mod?

That's great that you fixed your own problem!  You have now graduated from being a schoolboy to a pro.
