I'd also like to see what the official stance is, and if possible have the ME map limits greatly increased.

Am I losing my mind? I think the PG map has actually gotten bigger... I honestly do not remember it extending all the way to the North West like it is currently when was initially released.. Looks like we have parts of Kuwait and Iraq as well as Bahrain and Qatar. Hopefully they will go ahead and develop those areas with airfields and such!

The issue is not the size of the map itself, but how far you can zoom out, or pan across the map in the ME.


In some older versions of the sim on the Caucuses map you could actually go hundreds of miles outside of the intended map area in the ME and place units, which was extremely useful. Now the maps try to keep you focused very tightly on the intended areas.


Now I do understand that their might be reasons for map limits of some kind, but I don't know why these are so restrictive. I've flow about 1000 miles north of the map border in the ME before my game crashed so it doesn't seem like expanding the ME limit even by a few hundred miles will cause an issue.


And yes, two airfields were added to the north of the map. No more expansion is planned except possibly slightly south in the UAE.

I confirm this. It's really anoying I cant reach some units I did put far-east in my missions such as a carrier group to make distances closer to real life ROE. It's a pity. I hope ED will take a look at this problem.

Looks like it's corrected in the latest openbeta patch. I'll have to try it out.

I've been away from DCS for the past couple of weeks so I haven't had a chance to update, but glad to see this addressed and thanks.
