Here it is ! new and latest pack including now 8 maps :

UPDATE 08-07-2013 V2.20:

Quote
What's NEW v. 2.20 ?
This new update mainly includes bug fixes.

1- ALL MAPS:
Tex files: .tree.tga have been updated so that console message  "WARNING: count=xxx" with forest=3 ([OpenGL] section in conf.ini) now no longer appear.
Take-off points slighly moved on some small airfields in order to avoid "off-limit" spawnings (cooperative missions) that could prevent AI planes to take off.
Missing "runaway" points added on Köln-Ostheim airfield.

2-WestFront40 :
-Some rail/road broken have been fixed (Gladbeck-HertogenBosch-Bruxelles).
-Soft hills added on west side of Arnhem town.
-A few trees & houses on sea (east coast of England) have been deleted.

3-WestFront44 :
-Hilversum airfield (north-west of Soesterberg) was activated.
-Eben-Emael area (south of Maastrich) becomes similar to other maps.
-Some rail/road broken have been fixed (Gladbeck-HertogenBosch).

4-WestFront Generics :
-Hilversum airfield (north-west of Soesterberg) was activated.
-Some rail/road broken have been fixed (Gladbeck-HertogenBosch).


ADDITIONS V2.10 :

1-Mini heights-fix merged in WestFront 39-45 maps.
What is fixed:
-Ground flatness on runways at Ursel & Wattisham AF.
-Cliffs Of Dover ;) : Dover castle looks now good and nomore "suspended" on steep slopes.
-WF40& WF44 maps : forest nearby airfields are now on soft hills that renders them more visible for low planes.

2-Dogfight missions with IA activity (HSFX 6,017 compatibilty),
Please check the planes availables in your game, opening the mission in FMB : for example, the « Sedan 1940 » mission recquires  Bloch152, Caudron714, LeO451 & Do17z
Extra work in FMB may be needed to run well missions under DBW/UP3.

WHAT'S NEW (version 2.0) ?

-4 NEW GENERIC MAPS (seasonal pack) ; winter map appears less snowy than historical 1940 & 1944 maps. ( they were previously given to donators only, big thanks to them).
-3 brand new airfields : Florennes (gen & 1944) Wattisham (all) & Poix (all).
-Moorsele airfield added on WF40,
-Soft hills added west of Arnhem on WF44 map,
-Some useful WF40 airbases have been added on WF44 map.
-FIXED :
ANVERS Deurne 1944 has now concrete runways,
URSEL 1944 is now on a correct location with an historical scheme,
VENLO 1944 : forest and trees nearby runways have been deleted,
NIVELLES 1940 : trees that prevented planes to take off & land have been deleted
MARTLESHAM HEATH 1944 : concrete runways added,
Many roads/bridges have also been fixed

Only on GENERIC maps :
-Railway stations and railyards added at Anvers, Bruxelles, Lille, Ipswitch, Luxembourg, Köln & Düsseldorf (already present at Rotterdam &Duisburg)
-Take off points added on some grass airfields to allow 2 or 3 flights to take off simultaneously,
-Forests nearby airfields are now on soft slopes to make them more visible when on the ground or very low,

**************
Each map includes around 60 unic and (as far as possible) historical airfields. Airfields are not the same on every map : some appear, disappear, change their name or their appearence, depending on historical situation.

Basically : the WF40 Blitzkrieg map fits may 10th 1940 situation and WF44 Market Garden map september 1st 1944 situation.
GENERIC SEASONAL MAPS are made for 1941 to 1944 scenarii : most continental airbases have their concrete runways (most of them constructed by germans soon after the blitzkrieg)
