Post Scriptum
1) You can use only one mod at a time ^^
2) Compatibility with my other mods is good. However, slight discrepancies might be observable.
3) If you prefer having all items displayed on the map, or if you would like to zoom, simply remove ui.xml from the mod.

I set it to optimal size. Well, TBH I see no need to zoom-in as there won't be more details coming in, and no need to zoom-out as getting a wide view of the frontline is something that was very unlikely to happen by the time of the war.

Anyway, applying new settings is fairly easy to do. You can edit ui.xml and play with maxRange_met, minRange_met and currRange_met to fit with your needs. smile

Xav.

Hallo @xjouve,

please can you explain it a little bit more concrete: "You can edit ui.xml and play with maxRange_met, minRange_met and currRange_met to fit with your needs."
I have opend the file with GIMP, tested more Zoom-In variations. And a ZoomIn with 2:1 (200%) could be okay. So which numbers I have to use there for such a ZoomIn? Your answer will be very helpful to shorten my try-and-error-phase at the weekend.

Additionally: When do you plan the map with the military-signs (and the other …)?


Thanks and greetings!

Thank you for taking the time to create this. Where is this mod located? I am not seeing a link and I would like to give it a try, please.

@Hellshade,

you find the link in the first contribution "Links".
To get a Zoom-Factor for the map I have deleted the ui.-file, similar to Nibbios Inflight-map, which has no ui.-file. Now it's better.

Greetings

[v2.00 available]

v2.00 Color vs B&W comparison

[Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Main features:

- Used larger layers to increase details
- Used my new frontlines.txt (not included) to improve map placement

This is not an update of v1.00 but a new map, entirely redone, from scratch.

I installed this mod with JGSME into PE version of WOFF (current patch) and for some reason when hitting "M" the map is all black and blank except for the red front line crossing the map. Anyway to correct this?

Witchy Woman- it's possibly something to do with lack of GPU memory. If it's a laptop it may be using the wrong GPU (Intel) and it needs to be force to use the NVidia or whatever dual GPU is in there.

It just keeps getting better. Thanks for this amazing mod. I do have one question, though; why are these not posted on the Downloads link? I have had to join three different groups just today so I could try out various mods.


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
