I've been working on an Extended version of the Mideast Map and I think that it will be good to make a beta release of it in order to get your feedback.
You'll find it at www.gamefront.com/file...unette.rar
For those who have already installed v1.03 you'll note that this version has been upgraded to IL2 4.10.1 with HSFX 5.0.1 (previous version was on IL2 4.0.9 with UP 2.01)
The release includes:
1) A geographical extension to the west from Port Said to Alexandria and to the south to include the whole Sinai Peninsula and a part of the Red Sea.
2) Some fixes to the previous release (specially land leveling of some airfields) and a few additional features.
The geographical extension already has:
- Coasts and rivers
- Roads, railways and bridges
- Terrain textures
- A good deal of airfields
- The main cities identified and marked with city textures
New cities are still not populated with buildings -will come in a future release- but this will not prevent you from flying or from giving us your feedback.
Someone from the IAF team is now helping me. He is working in recreating the real layouts of the Israeli airfields (today all airfields have only one runway) but it will take some time before it's done.
I hope you enjoy it and I'll be looking for your feedback.
PS: I've been discussing with some people about possible campaigns and it would be great to have new mods for missing planes (for '48 war and up). If someone is able to develop some of those mods please contact me.
