Greetings all,

Apologies if this HAS been asked before (I have had a good 'trawl', honest - even searched), but I'm really mystified by the file maps.zip on the "Forgotten Battles" CD...

Obviously it has to be a collection of additional maps (indeed, it contains a folder structure containing loads of them)...

The trouble is, I can't seem to find anywhere in the FB installation to unpack them - and all I've got available to me in the game are the std 3 (Smolensk, Moscow & Crimea) that I had in the original Il2-Sturmovik...

Help?

Thanks in advance for any info/guidance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Be fragging you...

if i recall correctly.............big if

you know when you hit M ingame to bring up the map, i think its a bunch of those in bmp format for printing out.

and try winzip or winrar.

Since you name Smolensk, Crimea and Moscow1 - I assume you are talking about the QMB (Quick mission builder) maps.

You cannot add maps here.

AEP will add a pacific islands map, and PF will add Okinawa and Coral Sea maps.

These are printable maps of "in game" maps for different purposes, such as flying without map icons and map path , using compass, landmarks and dead reckoning for navigation.

Like Cow said, the Maps.zip file contains viewable (or printable) files of the maps included in FB. They do not add anything to the game (other than immersion).

If you want to use more maps in the QMB then download UberD's UQMG...... he also has a forum on Aorwarfare.com to get help on using it. Both can be found in the Sturmovik Essentials thread in my sig.
