Just a little heads up...we'll hopefully soon have this new map to work with. Complete with "a little too close" Scottland airbase.

Good to see they are making progress. Hope to see it in IL2 and not in BoB as mentioned by someone in the thread overthere.

How it looked in summer 1943:

Err it won't be in BoB...definately not. It was developed using the IL-2 Map Tools...BoB doesn't even use the same system.

Ok, so the possibilitys are: Patch after 4.08 or never. :(

Something like that. Oleg long ago said that there would be support for the IL-2 series upto or just after BoB. I wouldn't expect much after the pay addons but there may be a surprise patch somewhere here or there.

Is this going to be so enormous it's only any use for offline campaigns? or is it online freindly?

I'd say it'll be of little use to us, cause there were only a few airfields in that area and these were rather far apart form eachother.

Air starts just like on the Kyushu map. Its quite doable and could be very fun. Particularly with a new Tirpitz scenario...FAA Corsairs, Hellcats, and Seafires plus Mosquitos and Beaufighters have to try and sink the Tirpitz with FW190s and Bf109s in defense. Tirpitz Mark 2 :)
