A couple other points about this excellent mod:

- The naval comments written onto the map seem out of place to me (explaining the Soviet Black Sea fleet etc.)
- The eastern USSR hasn't been finished with town names, giving the mod an incomplete feel.
- The 'Valdai Hills' label really looks out of place.

This mod is a beautiful piece of work, extremely well done.  Though I find the town names clutter the map too much for my tastes -- however I love the factory, resource, port etc. icons.  Is there any chance of a 'slim' version of the mod with everything but town names?




Hi there. Thanks for the positive remarks.

If there is significant demand for a slim version, that can be produced, but to be honest I haven't heard anyone else asking for one.

Maybe you can run a poll?

It's back-breaking work to enter all the town names and around the time I got to the eastern USSR I started to realize how many annoying game issues there were, so I stopped playing the game and working on the mod.

I have come back recently to test the latest release via PBEM. If I get hooked again I might finish the mod for completeness sake.

PM me your email address and I will send you a small set of files with no Valdai label and no naval info.

Just in case if you decided to start again. I found a few places you may want to know about.
1 Hex X56. Y83. Brody. East of Lvov.
2 Hex X76. Y18. Kotly. South West of Leningrad.
3 Hex X82. Y21. Kukkovo. South of Leningrad.
And good luck in whatever you decide to do.

First, many thanks for the Mod. It is highly appreciated. Also of note is the labor it took to complete.

Now for the semi/low-level bad news: There is an error South of Orel.

"Malo-archangelsk" is one of the three towns/villages labeled on the railroad between Orel and Kursk. The proper name there should be "Ponyri".

This can be easily verified online by entering 52.32°N 36.29°E into Google maps. Note that the major North-South rail line runs through Ponyri, NOT Maloarchangelsk.
Another verification source is David M. Glantz. Any one of his numerous books on the 1941-1945 War in the East - Great Patriotic War - should have at least one map of the Orel-Kursk area.

Hopefully this post reaches the goal of being helpful, not a detraction, to the superb Mod produced.

This is what the new Map 19 gives you (obviously minus the red rectangle!)

Hi. I don't doubt you.

I have labelled the map using the names coded into the game to avoid confusion. There are a number of naming errors in the game but until they are fixed, I propose to use the same names on the maps as those coded in WiTE.

If I didn't do that, then you would see 'Ponyri' on the map, but Maloarchangelsk would pop up when you click on Ponyri.

Perhaps you can post your observation as a bug and it might get fixed?

redmarkus4 -- Thanks again for this mod. It is a real time-saver when building historical scenarios. It really helps in the placement of troops cuz in provides more points of reference.

I am only working on updating the grid version now because 99% of players seem to report that they always play with the grid on.

There is an original non-grid version (it was available via the Wiki) but it almost doubles the effort to support that with updates, so I don't propose to.

See if you can PM Cookie Monster to see if he can get you access to the non-grid files.

On the version I downloaded there is a cross hatching in the sea south of Helsinki that says "Mine Warefare", I believe it should say "Mine Warfare"
