We have many maps and few people work on them. To avoid situation when 3 guys working on same map we shouls type what map you want to change and second mapmaker can focus on other.

I update:

BobRed
Tunis
Kursk
Warszawa
Kotka
Novogrod
Channel44

Soon i will post what i change.

I wonder if we consider to remove bonus planes and red,blue versions of map.
This bonus map are same as orginal only bonus planes. And sometimes thanks to that we have loop of 3-4 maps. I didint play BoB missions since 2 months
Also insted of this bonus map we can have more new maps(even old once)

I don't think anyone else is doing these, anyway good idea this thread Kaster.
Posting what changes have happened, one thread for each map, seems like a good idea too.

If u agree u can take Western map(Normandy maps Africa nad Pacific) and I Russian front.

Second idea airbase AAA cover 4x Flak guns 6x low caliber.
Targets 1 AAA per 10 targets.

You won't get far with this AAA idea Kaster. Just think of a regular four base map with 60 targets for each side. That would make 28 AAA guns total, not taking into count what you describe as "low caliber". That would make it one hell of a laggy mess.

Maybe to far with AAA over target area.

I would suggest not working on huge lists and do one at a time. Announce it here and do your work and we'll collectively work through things. I have yet to download the package but I'll be looking at stuff.

AutumnStorm has already been upgraded...I haven't seen it but Zorrin has and I haven't heard any complaints yet.

New autumn storm is very good, new target placements excellent the airspace between the target airfields for both sides is alive with fighters/bombers you name it :)

(Its always on)

Are we planning to keep the Red and Blue maps? Or ditch those?

I've done some work on the Singapore map. Its more detailed and more lively but without going over the top. Also the same treatment to the Solomons map. Better target spacing and some attention to detail. Otherwise the same.

Currently we are discussing the bonus plane system in the admin/supporter section but it's looking like the consensus is to dispose of them, so please do not bother with red/blue parts for now ... just the main maps chaps :)

Main maps chaps it is :)

I heard that there may be a move to dispense with it. It may be the cause for some maps never getting any play while others get shown constantly.

We've got a double booking here^^^^ It's a Singapore shootout...
I'm interested to see what we've done different from same starting conditions...

Also it makes working out the rotation some what easier :)

Cheers for all the work so far chaps

My apologies. I hadn't seen that on your list.

I've mostly just fixed some things up. I've added the Buffalo Mark I as a flyable aircraft (it was the primary fighter in the theater, Hurricane II's came later) by default. I've fixed up the target areas a bit as well. Also I've added some small details to two fields that I commonly see being used as emergency landing areas for Hurricanes and Ki-43's.

Its not a bad map for placement so I didn't want to screw around with the balance too much. I just want it to look a little better and fix up the plane choices to be a little more historical. I don't think the Buffalo Mark I is any great hit to the balance...its a pretty underpowered aircraft in comparison to the B-239.

Firelok and guys i update my list of maps i want to do. I decide to make list shorter becouse i will not have days off soon.

Lol spent most of yesterday afternoon having fun altering Kursk and then discovered in the evening it's on your list, must pay closer attention before starting another update. :o

Right, I'm going to have a look at Birma43. Think I'll start with spelling Burma correctly and go from there. :)
Might do Belgorod too if noone else is.

Shouldn't you wait for the new Burma map, anything else would be pointless, IMO.

Firelok

A couple of hours servicing a venerable and very popular map is worth the effort I think. New Burma maps can always provide new scenarios when they show up, something involving the Royal Indian Air Forces perhaps. :)

S!

I just end upgrading maps. I must say that i just change few things:
move targets bit left or right.
On Moscow map i remove Mig 3 with shavaks and Am-38.
And all that little things.
