For a new map I would expect something like Ruhr, Rhein, Holland (Arnhem) and perhaps the Ardennes.



In my mind I see a new map with flyable Mosquitos, P-47s, the new German fighters (Me 262 and FW190A), perhaps long term plans for a Bf110 nightfighter, plus Spitfires, Doras. Mustangs etc and and a somewhat clear plan could begin to from: Market Garden, Battle of the Bulge. That would mean the map is mostly Belgium.

Battle of the Bulge would be a poor choice IMO considering the competition. Some portion of Germany would be the best fit considering the a/c we have are all 1945 aircraft (or last month or 2 of 44) except the spit. Personally I'd like either Berlin or something with the alps the best.

Yeah, they're basically the same pictures, but I saw them in the Newsletter first, which is from where I copied the link.

In the WWII forum, they're talking about a map including the Ruhr valley in the south-center and Hamburg in the north-east: DCS WWII Map Discussion . This covers all of the Market-Garden area.

Adding the Ardennes would add about another 50% to a map, which is probably already too large for DCS, and Berlin again another 50% to an already too fat cow.

Anyway, I always have to question the necessity to have a single map stretching all the way from eastern England to Berlin and beyond. IMHO the calling for flying 6-8 hour missions from England to eastern Germany is going to be fairly minimal. If you want to escort a raid into Berlin, airstart at the western edge of the map.

That may be, but I thought of battle of the bulge, because it was eventually decided by air power and also the last air offensive of Germany https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Bodenplatte In the months before the Luftwaffe stayed passive on the West Front, which makes the whole Normandy theater a bit uninteresting imo.

Berlin would be awesome but pretty ambitious considering it involves a huge populated area. But I would enjoy something that involves bomber interception, especially nightfighters.

The Med would be the most logical choice.
Specially North Africa.

1 They can continue to develop ETO planes that would fit in NA.

2 Most of the ground units are the same but different liveries.

3 They can introduce British carriers and Hellcats In preparation for Pacific. Even the Corsair would have a suitable map in UK colors.

4 Maps are simpler: SAND and Water! a few Odd towns here and there and you can even use PG buildings and structures.

???

North Africa was over before any of the aircraft we have now were deployed.

I would love to see a good set of early war aircraft and some North African maps --would one ever be enough -- but honestly ... I should live so long.

Its definitely interesting, and basically a perfect fit for our aircraft (except the Mustangs we have which are maybe a tad too late for it, but they aren't significantly different from the ones used there), but its being done by another sim. I think if there is that much overlap alot of people who currently buy and fly both because they offer different things they are interested in will end up just choosing one instead. And Im pretty sure what most will choose will not end up being DCS. As someone who wants to see DCS WWII continue to be developed, as well as have some people flying it online I think it would be a bad idea.
