+1 Awesome map proposal

Yup. The main issue I think would be picking a "date" for the map, what the cities in Taiwan/Taipei looked like in the 50's are rather different than the 2000's. Korea has the same "problem". Same for China or what parts that one decides to model.

Such and effort went into your post that at a first glance in thought you were a third party making this map.
C'mon, tell us that you are!
Nice one.
Instant buy for me.

Wow. I love this idea and what a thorough case for it! +1

The proximity of the mainland also allows more feasible red / blue areas. I like the South Atlantic project, but would I actually fly from Rio Grande to Port Stanley and back if I'm going to the office the next morning?

In a modern (2000s) incarnation, is this possible from a performance viewpoint? An honest question on my part. There's plenty of water yes, but also tons of trees and urban areas. Even more so if you try to grab big chunks of the mainland coast.

That's an excellent suggestion. I wish there were more 3rd parties for map development so we have a chance to see something like this soon.
This region is certainly is really hot spot for the 21st century and the Taiwan island is certainly an awesome place for Chopper ops as far as I am concerned.
Also, after watching those pictures, I want to go to Taiwan now.

Its funny, I've thought the same thing after flying around the PG and Caucus. Maybe DCS could get new maps sponsored by tourism bureaus.

I believe they already have. Just look at the Las Vegas and Dubai ma... sorry, Nevada and Persian Gulf maps. Where have they seemingly put most resources during development? On what locations are the marketing of those maps fokused on? When it comes to PG, is it really the area (and timeframe) where most action in the region have taken place? not a bit more to the NW may be? Added to that, both cities are well-known for extraordinary and creative ways of promoting themselves.

With that (conspiracy-ish) said, Taiwan map would be very welcome indeed.
