Let's all take a deep breath and move on.

RAZBAM - more maps pronto, make them suckers work for their money
Actually they didn‘t really and if you cared to take a look at the mass of reported and unanswered or not even acknowledged bug reports in the mirage section alone, you’d see that its not lame by now.
And dont even talk about the bug tracker on their homepage please.


Yes the map developers are separate from the aircraft coders, but still razbam doesn‘t give a too good impression of managing and supporting multiple products simultaneously.
Therefore asking for the next map after the Falklands/malvinas is in my opinion well premature, but each to their own.

Snappy

Curious that you refer to Scotland as part of the UK instead of the politically neutral name of "Scotland"

Not really as Scotland is part of the UK. There is a reason though RB have called it South Atlantic though as calling it the Falklands or Malvinas is likely to spark a large political argument they don't overly need/want. (Also probably what this thread is at risk of becoming anyway).

I wouldn't expect to see another map until this one has been flashed out. SHAR and Pucara have been confirmed as being worked on and we've seen some base images for the SHAR (very long way off for both).

I'm not sure if it would be worth RB doing a GR3 as well, but a Mirage 3 seemed to be very much on the cards a couple of years ago but seems to have disappeared off the planned list.

Hopefully we'll get more information over all of this over the coming year.

Yeah, I'm glad their artists are busy doing something, making maps and assets seems like good use of their time while the coders try to play catch up on the various modules.

The one other thing on that note that I wonder about is why the pilot bodies are taking so long to get re-done, is it an art issue or is there some coding stuff on that that I'm unaware of.

Snappy is right. The modules are unfinished and buggy. Nothing is being done, bugs linger for months. I am not buying those maps to fly their buggy modules on them.

Snappy is going off topic and you are taking it further. This thread is not for whinging about razbam. Please cease & desist

Ok so,

A - You are still calling Scotland part of the UK at the same time as worrying about the thread becoming too politically heated. We're way past that point already mate! Clearly not from around here (UK)

B - As was mentioned before on several threads, whatever modules they are working on don't really impact the map making as the map guys are a different team/person/persons according to razbam who's job is to make maps for DCS. So i doubt it is beyond the scope of imagination that they may already be looking at another map.

C - GR3 would be kind of awesome, though i really like the idea of twin prop like the Pucara in DCS too. After the mozzie of course

Yeah, agreed.

Not sure about the pilot bods, i only got the mirage recently so haven't experienced it with the pilot body so not missing anything but would be nice to see a harrier pilot soon. I am sure they will come as RB seem to have alot planned for this year/quarter.

To elaborate, i studied the war alot when at secondary school (age 15) and have alot of respect for all the men who fought in the conflict on both sides. I don't have a problem calling it by it's English name or it's Argentine name.

Without going into detail i'm not a fan of Margaret Thatcher either...
