View Full Version : Combined UK-2 and UK-3 Mission Gazeteer?

I would like to see the mission gazeteer for UK-3 completed.

However, as UK-2 and UK-3 use the same maps, is it worth having a combined gazeteer instead?

It would save a lot of unnecessary duplication, just a thought.

The details on the maps are often quite different between the servers, specifically the plane sets.

Also separate gazetteers make the upkeep much easier as the map lists are managed by two persons. It also strengthens the image of the servers as two different entities (ie ukded3 isn't just ukded2 without externals).

Although i don't see why the relevant information from the ukded2 gazetteer can't be copied to the ukded3 one.

I'm not keen, I put a lot of work into sorting out a Gazetteer for UK2 just as a labour of love. I don't think things can be combined, what happens when maps are altered? i.e. the UK3 copy has been altered to suit the different server settings/player style? or UK2 alters?

Someone has to take a deep breath and decide to put in a similar amount of work for UK3 as I did for UK2, it was only a weekend. I don't think there can be a shortcut.
