I was thinking about the fact most people don't seem to like night time maps... but that night time offers alternative planesets.. plus the aparant popularity of MD's new map.. Do people think that a map containing ( for instance ) :-

He111/Ju88 escorted by Bf110

Attacked by Mossies/Beau's

Would go down well?

Obviously variations on the theme.

Pe3's, Bf110's, Mossies, Beaus - could be used. Sadly no Japanese twins available though. Just did a test with a Pe3 and it did fine against a He111.

Simulating night time attacks but in daylight.

Night maps are no problem if you change the settings on your graphics card.

Pilots who flew night missions were on strict lock-down.....shades drawn, blackened rooms, heavy duty sun glasses until sun-down

Problem is they are VERY unpopular. The hardcore guys can cope with them, even love them, but we need the more casual pilots to make up numbers. A map that is constantly voted off or disliked is no good.

HOWEVER the planesets add variaty. Night plane sets can be 100% twins (or bigger) and as such add variaty.

Istra type "night" map in the winter is quite dark but you still can locate stuff.

Yeah I think Istra works cause everything is so close packed and because of the searchlight respawn the light often pick out bandits. I didn't think it would last out a month after me suggesting it. Yhe contrast between the snow and darker sky helps and it becomes noticably lighter after half an hour. Really it's not nighttime. Try it out in quick missions on the Moscow map there a big difference between 12.00 midnight and 5.30 am (Istra time) so it's pre-dawn really.
