I had an idea of perhaps a 1946 Pacific map maybe say on the Okinawa map

We could have the Me262 as the Ki-201 Karyū (basically japanese 262) against P-51's, corsairs, lightnings and B-29s maybe P-80's?

Im not a map maker anyone else fancy giving this a go at making and trialing?

I understand your intention, I like the Ki-201 too but the western europe late war maps are very close to your idea... do we need another 'Me262 kills em all map'???

Unfortunately we can't simulate spontaneous engine fire or structural failure :D

it sounds interesting indeed, might be hard to build though because it is so special.

Do you have any more info on that idea?

Well we have a mpa on UK2 I think it was Iron Curtain where it as 1964 and it was essentially West Germany and Allied forces against russian forces.

I was thinking something similar on the Okinawa Map a bit like Dortmund/Kyushu scenario. Keep it mainly Prop late war with the Ki 201 (262) intercepting the B-29s perhaps a limit on the 262 so that 2 or 3 are only allowed to fly at once. From what i have read the Ki201 was only made into prototypes so never made it to fight so its a kind of "what if?" and Im sure we could make it so its not a "262 kill em all map" to be honest I have no idea where Falc got that from as all the maps we have 262's on they are either bombing targets or spend all day running away from props after missing them with cannon. Thinking of this as a bomber intercept for the 262 like it was made for. We could give the B-29 a nice high air start at something like 18,000 ft or similar?

I'd say the P-80 would belong in that, mostly because those more or less were on the way to the Pacific when the war ended, but if it was included I'd definitely see Falc's point of the map becoming redundant, since Rhineland already features that particular duel.
In other news I always thought the airstart altitude was a fixed constant and couldn't be altered.

well, there are skins to disguise the 262 as a IJA plane ;)

You could add the Me163 as Mitsubishi J8M (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_J8M)?

The 163 on a map is close to unstoppable for the 7 minutes that it has fuel. Acceleration is in a totally different league and handling is good enough to really put a damper on anything up against it.

The 262 is at least in the same general area as say a Mustang.

A 1946 map would be neat.... sounds a bit more like a single player campaign rather than anything else. I'm not sure how well it would go in multiplayer.

it'd be neat if we could have such a map for ukd3 as well :D

P.S.

have a look at this campaign, lots of fun & awesome skins for the do334, me 262 and me 163 http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3357
