    Unless it's in official patches those other planes are useless. Bf109E-3 and E-1 included. TD won't do the BoB era aircraft because that's what Storm of War will be about. I'm sure we'll have a full year of Battle of Britain only so I'd like to enjoy that time period when it comes

    Iraq was an ok map. Try my new Slovakia-Hungary map... see what you think. It's very similar in planeset but the scenery is more interesting

    Some ideas bouncing around in my head right now...

    - A 1946 alternate history map with jets and high performance prop fighters on the Eastern Front.
    - Tarawa
    - A carrier vs carrier battle of some kind
    - A Crete based map (using a portion of the MTO map) with Hurricanes versus 109Es and some early Italian types. Surely the Fulmar is flyable with MODs as well so we could drop that in there too.
    - A alternate 1942 channel map using the Norway map with the British bases on it as a substitute (so we don't have to use Normandy for everything)
    - A new Normandy post D-Day invasion scenario of some kind.
    - Rhur2 which is not an idea... I'm almost done with that one. It's a straight up West Front late war battle with the best of the Luftwaffe, RAF, and USAAF. Tweaking everything to bring this one back.

    Any of those resonate with anyone?

    Hi, there is problem with map "South east europe 1944"(?) in Hungaria, axis target is airfield in O-11 (brief), but pressing Ctrl+F2 i can see airfield in Q-12, destroyed all aircrafts there, but only 50% of "mission of objectives" was completed.

    You mean the "Ploesti" map?

    If I remember right there are targets in 2 airfields, the concrete one and another north from it. Maybe it's just not in the briefing, so it should be updated then.

    We don't have enough Tempest maps I've decided

    Is there any chance of ressurecting the Ardennes / Boddenplatte mission or was that map too badly screwed up by mods in everyones opinion to use? Perhaps we can create a new Boddenplatte mission based on one of the winter dogfight maps?

    Do what you want.

    I focus my ideads on 42-43 scenarios. Mainly Eastern front.
    Murmansk
    Leningrad(or New Novogorod)
    Crimea
    Tunis
    Maybe Channel 43.

    We need also Pearl Harbor map P-40 vs Zero its nice scenario and even plane set.I wish we could have BoB map.

    I wanted to put tempest on Hill112 but nobody said it was there so we dont have it.

    Pearl Harbour has always been an excellent dogfight scenario but Pearl harbour becomes a problem when it get's to the issues of ground attack.

    Some thoughts for discussion.

    • Reds shouldn't have a ground attack option.(I don't think they ever have.)
    • Blues flyable D3A 'Val' cannot really sink appropriate shipping easily enough to make a ground attack victory feasible against ships.
    • With blue static carriers the 'Kate' couldn't take off with any adequate bombload compounding issue 2 here.
    • Pearl Air to Air fighter combat has always been it's greatest asset.


    Taking the above onboard, possible solutions include either.

    1. Using Moving Carriers and headwinds to allow the 'Kate' to take off with torpedoes allowing effective shipping attacks. The IJN torpedos are still very difficult to use in the confines of Pearl Harbour so this might not improve blues ground attack chances very much. I still can't conceive of a possible Red ground attack option, it just makes no sense without really bending history out of shape.

    2. Focus Blues ground attack mission on the 'Attack the Airfields' part of the Pearl Harbour engagement. Leaving AI attack waves to engage shipping.This allows Red and Blue to keep to the same 'destroy aircraft' objective but blues get to attack 'static aircraft' as part of their tally. Reds get to add AI plane kills to theirs. The Pearl Harbour airfields can be the blue targets, with Red team spawning from the airfields away from Pearl.

    Reds can sink 4 ships in diffrent location then carriers.

    We can add B5N2(has 800kg? bomb) and you can sink Destroyers easy, also Zero can have 250kg bomb.

    Bombers can have air start.

    Many of maps are not correct with history. On western front after 44 year we should have 4 time more players on red side then on blue.

    I do not unterstand why a ground target for each side? One side attack and the other side defends should work too.

    (offtopic) Did anyone note Luthier asking for suggestions as to maps for online play? He mentioned specifically the realistic maps that you chaps enjoy, however he was concerned the plane-set might not work for many areas.

    The limited plane set is the major problem here. There is no point to have maps of other areas of France, Norway or even Poland because of the very limited Allied plane set.

    There aren't very many scenarios we can do... I agree. It'll have to be some creativity in placement and maybe trying to replicate some sort of historical scenario down to the specific squadrons. Might even base the scenarios around the phases of the battle (Dunkirk evacuation, convoy battles, airbase raids, and then bombing of London).

    Of course I'll end up doing what I want to do but that doesn't mean I can't (or shouldn't) solicit advice. I'm one guy... a variety of opinions is what makes the maps ultimately good.

    Murmansk is definitely under utilized and I'd love to see some historically based scenarios there. You may want to look at Kuban as the Crimean aspects are somewhat played out but the massive air battles with lend lease aircraft in the Kuban is sorely lacking and it's still the same front just different time periods. Channel 43 sounds good!

    Hill 112 was definitely not the best scenario for the Tempest to show up in. It was used a couple of times immediately after D-Day with sweeps over Normandy but at that time the Tempest was really quite far ahead of the Axis opposition and it wouldn't be great for balance.

    Curious if anyone is resurrecting any of our Kyushu maps? Shibushi was one I think that JtD did which might be nice to have back. I was thinking about building a new one or bringing one of my old ones out of retirement as well...

    A dusk map with low flying B29's to intercept would be pretty cool I guess.

    Yes. I have made one. Don't know where it ended up. It used the Slovakia summer map, south western region, with a good mix of French and British planes for the Allies and the usuall early stuff for the Germans. Was called Lille if I am not completely mistaken.

    Any chance for the benefit of all the map cycle could be sorted, there are clutches of the same front grouped together. It used to be something like EF WF PF Med and repeat , where possible of course.
