My contribution from the mod-site: "Updated In-Flight Map Mod"

-------------------------------------------------------------------


Hallo JJJ65:
Thank you for the tip with multimod 1.9.1.

But I mean it not only because of the aeroplane-colour.
Let me explain: Please look at ICAO-Cards or other maps for VFR-Flight. Forrests are in lime / pale green. That's no coincidence. It has sense, because you can see all other symbols on forrest-markings better than on the intensive / dark green background (try to imagine the small black line of a railroad on a dark green background and that you have only time for a fast look on your kneeboard in reality).

I hope it is more clear now, what I wanted to say (no Problem for me, if OvS can't change it. It's a great work!).

You can easily change it yourself by editing a value in the view.xml file, I believe. I would give you more detailed instructions, but I am currently away from my computer and haven't edited any files for awhile, so I can't be absolutely sure just based on memory.

I had a little trouble at first but with help it was solved. I just realized I never reported back. I'm using this map regularly and I love the extra detail it contains. Thanks for this great little mod!


Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done

Hiya fellas... just make sure you download the version from the Mod page. It is the most updated and recent. I added a lot to the map compared to the version I gave out to test with.

As for the green.... it was part of the original artwork. That was not my intent to change the map into something totally different. I just wanted to add many of the missing towns and villages for depth and atmosphere while you're flying over them.
Now you can have a better idea where you are, and use that info for your Victory claims... who knows.. maybe more will be confirmed. LOL

Best,

OvS

OvStachel, thanks for your hard work. Looks excellent. Just used it for the first time, its nice to see what river you're over and what that little grey dot is called. Victory was confirmed so maybe you created not only a fine map update but a pair of scissors that will cut red tape as well. biggrin
