    KANTTORIN KONE Throttle Console

    New color coded (Luftwaffe) knobs to switches and pots. Red knob is propeller manual pitch. Brown knobs are oil radiators and green are water radiators. Some radiators needs switch type (as Bf 110) adjustment and some needs potentiometer axes. In the front end of console black knob is gears up/down and white knob is flaps up/down. You can change knobs as you wish depending on your mapping. I can supply console also with default black knobs if you don't need color codes. Just tell me!

    KANTTORIN KONE Throttle Console

    I have wrote new Joystick Gremlin configuration software's QUICK START instructions to my Setting Up Pages: https://www.kanttorinkone.com/setup.html Joystick Gremlin is an awesome application and I really recommend to use it with my Throttle Console! "Joystick Gremlin is a program that allows the configuration of joystick like devices, similar to what CH Control Manager and Thrustmaster's T.A.R.G.E.T. do for their respectively supported joysticks. However, Joystick Gremlin works with any device be it from different manufacturers or custom devices that appear as a joystick to Windows. Joystick Gremlin uses the virtual joysticks provided by vJoy to map physical to virtual inputs and apply various other transformations such as response curves to analogue axes. In addition to customizing joysticks, Joystick Gremlin also provides powerful macro functionalities, a flexible mode system, scripting using Python, and many other features."

    Project page is removed. The main purpose of that page was attract attention to developers and some Russian and Ukrainia map makers but now it is done. It was also better tell to community something about our map plans that there are not coming any overlapping map projects with this. We continue our work and everything is fine but we can not tell anything more of the map production just now!

    KANTTORIN KONE Throttle Console

    Here are the new console pictures with the new 3D printed handles and extra three buttons assigned to the throttle handle. After two weeks testing I must say that they feels good and the extra buttons are very usable. I fly mostly bombers and I have mapped to those buttons briefing map, toggle to pilot/bomb sight (to same middle button) and toggle turret positions. The end cap button has TrackIR centering (up) Zoom in/out (left/right) and conventional (Russian) wheel brakes (down).

    Yes, Cathina and also southern Tyrkovo (Toroschkowitshi) airfield near Luga is planned to be in the south of this map. Tyrkovo was the Rudel's airbase during attack against battleship Marat in Kronstadt. There is one of our reference map when finding Luftwaffe and Russian airfields south of Leningrad. We are pinning all the airfields to Google Earth exactly to their right locations. 90% is ready...

    Our mosly Finnish team is big (10 members) and we have any hustle or pressure with this Finnish-Russian maps. We are mostly adult 40-65 years old men who have very much professional experience with the map tools (mostly Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and several 3D softwares) and we have also huge amount of knowledge and interest of Finnish-Russian war time history. Most of us are also "hard core" IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles players and we really want to create this big map to this game. It is at the same time also us nice history project, not only a gaming pleasure... I have personally made several maps to other games and I know the quantity of the work what it requires, but with this team I know we can do it. Most of all we Finns have so called "sisu" which means willpower or stamina. We don't give up very easily!

    Our map making team is working with the "Battle of Leningrad" map all the time. Anyway here is our first 100 km x 100km Kotka-Lavansaari map which is under work at first and just now. It is at the same time our "testing map" that we are learning the terrain making methods to this game. In beginnig of next year that Kotka-Lavansaari map above is contained to our main work which we had named as a "Battle of Leningrad" because it describes it very good. We have incereased the map much more to south and east - We have noticed that it is much more better and versatile cropping even the map is growing to huge dimesions to 400km x 350km. Thanks God there are about 30 % sea and big lakes... Leningrad and Vyborg cities 3D-buildings are combleted all the time by our 3D-modellers while the other crew is building that smaller map. We also just got our national Finnish Environment Institute to co-operate with us. Our professsional contact person there delivers us all the necessary data as elevations, water and ground cover data. it helps our huge job really much and now the map progression looks very good! I guess (and hope) that we can show the first screenshots from that small map very soon after Xmas...
  13. Thank You, I needed just this!

    IL-2 Battle of Finland

    Thank you Dietrich, but your suspection was right, I have had those maps in my hard drive almost 15 years. My grandfather was a refugee from the Viena Karelia (Repola village) and that is the one reason why this map project is so important to me. I have all my father's papers, photos, blueprints and maps from my grandfather's home in small village near the main Repola village. I live myself in the North Karelia (Joensuu town) and my grandmother's place was in Ilomantsi very near the current Finnish-Russian border. I visit there many times every summer. Repola is now Russian territory and it is from Joensuu only 150 kilometers "as the crow flies". Be still free to offer us every reference material you find, you never know what you have!

    IL-2 Battle of Finland

    Our team has cropped the map once more and is becoming more interesting:The map has a size of 350 x 350 kilometers and it covers most of the Finnish Fighter Squadrons. Luftwaffe and VVS operating areas around Leningrad from summer 1941 to autumn 1944. Undoubtedly the most important city of the area are Viipuri and Kotka and of course Leningrad. The blue dots are Finnish air bases, Soviet bases are red and German bases are green. Bigger roundels are historical bomber airfields or their working bases.NOTICE: The Kotka-Lavansaari area is higlighted and it is the first testing 'dogfight' map what we are going to build. It is 80km x 80km and mostly sea so it is our small exercise work to learn the map making to this great game! . We are going to open later in this Autumn a new thread for this map project as soon as we have something new and interesting to show you!
