Manama Bahrain - where innocent Coasties go to learn what a sailor's culture is really about......

Wonder if they'll have my old haunt, a Mexican restaurant called El Compadre's, where you could get beefsteak ranchero with eggs and banana margaritas for breakfast!!

Both Abu Musa and Kish would make great targets, given how fortified they've become over the years.

Manama's like the Subic Bay of Southwest Asia, except for the unpermissive atmosphere.

How exactly is the airfield on Abu Musa to small for fighters, sure it won't be able to host Red Flag but it has a ramp and a nearly 3000 m long runway what more do you need?

Yeah, on second look, it will do fine. I must have looked at one of the other islands the first time.

Not enough until Wags or anyone from the devs reveals where the outer "borders" of the map we are getting actually are.

Old screenshot from editor in TBS - a separate product, is irrelevant for us, and any wishful thinking originating from it is still condtradictory to Wags' post a couple of pages ago (which in itself was far from "transparent" it seems).

The Sea is just that, Sea.

But you are right, just wait for some official editor pics.

The only thing unpermissive in Bahrain was pork products, and you could even get that at the British market - they kept them in the back behind a divider, kinda lile how video stores used to do with porno lol.....

Aside from the pork issue there wasn't anything thst a young man couldn't pay to get or do.

After reading the last few pages regarding the size and mission development imagination requirements I felt I should voice my opinion. I'm not very concerned about the size, I'm sure ED will do a fantastic job. I've always wished for the entire planet to be modeled to the level of detail of Nevada however, not only is that a tremendous undertaking but it also just isn't feasible with today's technology. It would require several terabytes of storage to hold a map of the planet. As for the length of a flight in the SOH, I would like to be able to have more options regarding airfields and even more ocean space to place battle groups and carriers. People talk about mission times, and while I agree that the average player won't want to spend all day flying to the coast so they can toss a single JDAM and RTB. But there are those of us out there who would enjoy that. Over the last week, I've been working on a mission for the Caucasus map for a few friends that going to last around five hours. That way we get to stop by a tanker for fuel and get a better taste of real missions. I personally I am the type of person who if I had the option would get into the A-10 and fly across the ocean. Why? Because I can. I would sit there all day pressing buttons maybe I'll get a bit bored. So I'll do a roll or a few sweeping turns just to amuse me. Now before anyone says I should go pick up FSX or X-plane I'll tell you that I'm not interested. I'd rather be dragged across the Atlantic attached to the pylon of an F/A-18 than fly in a civilian simulator.

My dream would be to one day have the Caucasus map and the SOH map be connected and modeled to the same level of detail. It would be a huge map and would expand the horizon of what is capable in the game right now. Not only would we have hundreds of airfields to pick and choose from but we would also get access to the regions of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and even a touch of Syria. Having all of this space and different locations would allow for very realistic scenarios revolving around the gulf war. Much of the current and future modules would be very at home in this region. Honestly, it seems to me that unless there is some unknown political reason for not including Iraq then we should absolutely get that. Just maybe not yet.

I'm happy to discuss this some. However I wont argue. Thanks in advance.
