Beautiful artwork! Of all the maps available I use just a few, yours are the best. Nice feel down low. Lots of trees. I would rather make a very detailed local missons, and have ten fearful minutes of arse biting action, than worry about the expansivness of bland landscapes. I'll leave that for people who put British roundels on JU-87s and shoot down B-29s with German markings on??!!

In your Norway Summer map, there is a place in the bottom left corner near 'Bamf' (spelling), I use this small place to make lots of Western Front missions, it has beautiful fields, and from watching gun camera footage of airfields being straffed yours looks very similar.

If I can find a nice ridge in the landscape next to the water, I am able to lift ships out of the water and place them on the ridge and expose their hulls and propellers, then use 'destroyed' objects to create a whole ship building yard arround it, also using the small radar towers as ship buiding cranes - looks real, will try to post pics (once I learn how to - I'm new to DBW-SAS) but been playing for the full 11 years.

Anyway, any future maps, please make small ridges and bumps next to water/river inlets to place ships/Uboats on, ....and please make some large grassy fields here and there as they are brilliant for making forward airfields. These two things are hard to find in any map, and frustrating when a nice place is available but I am then unable to destroy objects becuase the destruction is limited to local cities/towns.

Your maps are brilliant!

Playtesters wanted for WESTFRONT40 RAF campaign
« Reply #53 on: May 18, 2012, 04:14:39 AM »

Soon I hope to complete a RAF campaign for this GREAT map, set in May 1940.



It is a 13-mission static campaign, where you got to fly both the earliest variant of the Hurricane (with the two-bladed propellor) and the later, more powerful Mk I (with the three-bladed prop, and armour plating).

If anyone would like to PLAYTEST it, I would be most grateful. If you do, just PM me!

Yes, in the campaign you actually get to see some Gladiators in action - poor sods, against Bf 109:s - and to rescue them.
