Looks good Zorin. A great start for sure...there's definitely some holes to plug with other maps later on but this should be a great start.

Definitely, especially the Pacific is underrepresented within this cycle, but that is due to the fact that the earlier scenarios need reworking, as they are worn out.

You guys could make a wish list of the favorite maps from the old cycle that should be included in the next weeks so we get up to our old standard soon.

I also would like to add that I only made the initial cycle to help out the undermanned server team, but its not likely that I will do any prolonged maintenance besides consolidation now and then. Organizing the DMs will keep me busy enough.

Sonko will hopefully remain the server supervisor as he has done a fine job pulling UKd2 together after its latest time of suffering.

Thank you Zorin.

Request: that winter map with VVS vs Luftwaffe... The frontline is dividing the map horizontally and reds have the Hurricane Mk.IIb field mod. Blue have the fockewool so i guess its mid-war. Reds are on the upper side of the frontline. I always liked that map, but i dont know its name!!! :o

I'd like to ask you to re-include Midway to the cycle, risking that it's one of those maps that are great fun with equal (both in numbers and skill) teams but also a bit nightmarish otherwise.

Any chance of seeing the maplist in playorder? Or does it now jump to a different map depending on who won?

As soon as I can, I'll check on its current setup and see what can be done to turn it into a more enjoyable map for both parties involved.

I thought the midway as firelok left it worked pretty well on ukded2. Airstarts for the naval bombers majority of fighter coming from the carrier fleets and all that.

My wish list includes:
Krasnodar
Citadel or Orel
Bocage or bulge
Apennines2

I haven't played in quite a bit, that is why I said I need to take a close look as to where Midway stands now. If it has proven itself the way it is now, I have no objections to having it in the cycle.

As for your wishlist, does any of the maps require further restrictions in terms of planes available in the air or the addition of AI planes? The Hs129 comes to my mind when I think of Orel for example.

Algorex
23-03-2009, 14:16
A hs 129 to the kursk scenarios would be spot on. Maybe some me 210s to apennines and bulge with B Mk IV mossies on bulge.

Is it just me or are there awful lot of restrictions on the maps? Especially those planes in the air-restrictions. It would be great to have them all documented on the forums (ideally on the Mission Gazetteer). I know it's a bit of a pain but sooner or later they'll all be brought in to discussion.

The only in air limitations are on Ladoga (F4 as before), Totila (Fw190 + I-16type24), Ruhr (K4C3 + Me262, MustangIII + SpitfireMkIX25lbs) and Dday2 (G6AS + Tempest).

That is four out of sixteen maps.

Yes, that is cofusing, but not representative of the actual setup.

About Gazala: when you type <obj<red, the targets listed are not the same as in briefings. I think briefing targets are correct.

Zorin you sent me Orel, so I stuck it after Kasserine. All done, now when is someone gonna take the reins for UK2??????.

Belgrade seems like a nice server emptier.

We had 8 chaps leave in the first minutes the map loaded just now. Could it be revised or possible replaced with a 1941 PTO scenario/some other possibility?

I always find BElgrade to be very enjoyable and besides the weekend crowd, most pilots appear to be rather fond of it.

But we could throw in a early 1942 AVG scenario. How does that sound?

Kang

I'm also a bit surprised about Belgrade being a server cleaner. The only thing I noticed about it is, that it's technically impossible for red to win the map:
According to briefing (and the map idea) red should be winning if there still are targets standing when the time limit is reached, but FBDj always counts that as a draw. Is there a way to rectify that in general?

Fergi
10-04-2009, 17:57
I like Belgrade too.
There's no Barbarossa map, by the way.

NS-IceFire
10-04-2009, 21:34
None? Hrmmm...we used to. Maybe its time for a new one.

Played Kauen yesterday so its still in the loop. Its actually one of the less exciting maps for me. Probably because the ones before it were incredibly awesome.

I'm pretty sure you did not intend it to be a pun against me, but the two maps before Kauen in the cycle are both yours... and Kauen is one of my maps.

NS-IceFire
13-04-2009, 01:13
Actually no I didn't mean it that way. I was pretty sure...although the brain has been acting up...that the one previous to that was the Kuban map up in the north with Yak-1Bs and La-5Fs against FW190A-4s. Great fun that map! Definitely not mine.

Thats what I was thinking of...so no it was definitely not against you.

Algorex
22-04-2009, 15:36
The server seems to be running on a 25 and a half hour cycle, which means very few different maps are played during the peak hours (8 PM to 2 AM uk time) during the week.

NS-IceFire
23-04-2009, 01:02
I'm sure as soon as a few more are added to the mix it'll start to diverge.

I'm working on one right now I'll show off later and see if Zorin is interested or not.

Fergi
23-04-2009, 10:39
You could place here some great dogfight maps form UKD1, such as:

Ardennes
Rome
Shibushi

Especially the first two, they are the best dogfight maps available in my opinion.

I just wanted to remind all and everyone that I am not the last stance when it comes to the point of including a map or not. :confused:

We always appreciate new maps being submitted and they will usually all get aired for testing and if the results are positive, will be included in the cycle permanently. :)
