Default New Britain, New Guinea Map - Kadoka??

I have been working on a new mission on one of the New Britain, New Guinea maps but it is starting to hurt my head! Everytime I see the name “Kadoka” on the map where Kokoda is supposed to be it grates on me.

Now I’d like to say I really appreciate having this excellent set of New Britain, New Guinea maps, so thank you very much to the map makers. But ... as an Australian this brain-stutter spelling of Kokoda on each of them really grates.

The name “Kokoda” is like a sacred place name to Australians because the battle for the Kokoda Track is symbolic of the turning back of the Japanese on their march toward the Australian mainland in 1942, just like Stalingrad is symbolic of the turning back of the German march on the Soviet Union.

So imagine if Stalingrad was spelled as “Stigranlad” on the Stalingrad map. Now how wrong does that feel??

I don’t know how hard it is to change place names on maps, but that’s certainly one fix that would really be appreciated by Australians.

DIY: extract by PAL's SFS extractor a file named "texts" or such, inside a folder named "maps\NGNB_DT", then find the grating "Kadoka" and change it into "Kokoda", save. If the extractor can't find the above mentioned file at the above mentioned path, you must add the file with the complete path to extractor's filelist (maps\NGNB_DT\texts.txt - pls see intruction below). Now you must set your game for mods (if not yet set) and put the file with its proper path into a folder "mapmods" - that's to say:

C:\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\MODS\mapmods\maps\NGNB_DT\texts.txt

et voilà: you'll read "Kokoda"!

Instruction to add filenames to extractor's filelist:
In the SFS Extractor v3.1 you can also add lines.
We use a file "filelist.txt" in the extractor folder and in the program we click:
Tools ... Filelist Import (filelist.txt type) ...
Accept to save the additions by quitting the program!

In the filelist.txt the lines are like:
3do\flat\la-7\damage1o.tga

Thanks for the detailed pointers greybeard1.

I don't usually mod anything other than adding skins, but I'll give it some thought when I finish moving house!

It would still be nice if the Team could fix this for everyone in the official supported version though.

I thought to help you by making the mod. Actually, there were four texts files, and I was lucky enough to find their names already decrypted.

You can download it at the following address (obviously it requires a moddable version of 4.13.4, or the predisposition to modifications already offered by the stock version of 4.14.1):

Sorry for slow reply on this due to my house move. Thanks again greybeard1 for going to this trouble! Hopefully TD will follow suit for the official supported version.
