File Description

This is fix for PDA map/minimap for Military warehouses level. Contains NO additions, just adjustments of the map so it matches the "reality" in the level.

Please - post comments so I know what else to fix for version 1.0!

Rest of info is in the readme and pictures provided below..

P.S. Btw, I will continue with map-mods (with added point names) only when I finish and adjust this map, as this is really bothering me, and I can't make modded maps from original files that are so badly placed..

Mod name: PDA map fix for Military warehouses - v0.8
Author: Lux aka LuxZg
Version: 0.8
Date: 18.10.2008.
STALKER CS: 1.5.0.5

Description/Changelog:
--v0.8--

This is a fix for a major map mismatch that occurs in the level of Military warehouses.
To describe it in short, I think it's better to look at the pictures. But in original game when you're inside house, map will be showin you 10-15 meters away.
My map fixes this problem, and is better than I've expected.
THIS MAP HAS NO POINT NAMES! THIS IS JUST A MISMATCH FIX OF ORIGINAL FILE!

Still, another problem occurs, where my new map doesn't match the global_map texture. So I've done a half-makeover to ui_global_map.dds as well. But this was just a rough fix, and it is the reason why this wasn't v1.0 but I've named it v0.8. It's still first public version of this fix, but I had a hundered internal revisions non the less :P :)

Preview:
First and second picture show the same position, but in minimap you can clearly see the difference. Same thing goes for PDA map, but haven't made a comparision as it's not that obvious due to HUGE actor/player icon in the PDA map:

Next a comparision of globalmaps. First is the original map+original global map

And than you have my properly positined map but a problematic only half-adjusted global map:

To make it more clear, highlited in red are parts which should be fixed in next version:

Since I believe that map/minimap is more important than this small error with global map, I am posting this online.

Please report any problems or further mismatches, either in map or global map, so I can make a better finalised maps..

Also, once I finish this fix I will make my map-mod with point names from this fixed map.

Tested:
Tested in 1.5.05, works fine, and no problems except that one with global map mismatch which I believe is a minor thing.

Credits:
me - ofcourse, for making this fix
original developer - for making such a stupid mistake, so I can fix it :P :D
