Do we know anything, has anything been mentioned or hinted, what area this or these maps would cover? Or would it be pure speculation? Im guessing west Germany (Rhine area) with a chunk of France and Belgium or Belgium and Holland, since we already have the 44-45 period aircraft, and that would be the next area of operations in the air war?

Just basing it on this, since that area had a large concentration of USAAF / Allied airfields (last page in this doc)

The only thing said so far was that they wanted to create maps that fit for the current planeset. If you think about how late in the war the K-4 and D-9 came that doesn't leave a whole lot.

Personally I think southern Germany/Austria would be great. Northern Germany would be cool as well. Berlin would fit but then one would technically need soviet fighters as well if you want to have everything covered.

IMO Rhein/Ruhr/Belgium/France would be a bit of a mistake. As much as that was the biggest industrial region and got bombed alot it's exactly the Bodenplatte area that is being covered by the "other sim".

But who knows. If it's true and it really does fit with the late war western front planeset we have I'm sure it will be interesting.

The current planeset was decide by a old company on a KS, now that can be expanded with new aircraft by the WW2 Team (Mosquito can be incoming) to fit better with 1944/45 western front.

Maybe in 10 years but at the moment we have what we have and if they want to build maps for that then there are limited options.

The maps never was centred on "planesets" on the previously 6 years from DCS World release, and ED and 3rd parties not have plans change them. Example, RAZBAM has working on a Falklands / Malvinas map and no "pilot-able" module to match with them time era (they talk about the map expande from 82 conflict to today) and only a "far future" Pucara, similarly to Normandy (except the Spitfire MkXI). A Vietnam maps has not "match timeline" modules with proper era, the future Afganistan map has not centred only on "Soviet invasion", Syria has not only centred on 73 or actual civil war and the Caucasus map never was Russia-NATO air wars over there.

We continue use the modules as usual, the maps continue coming and they have adapted to the community to build missions with propel "licenses". To a "realistic" WW2 maps on 44/45, they need put a allied air superiority and a demoled day / night bomber campaign without opposition to a demarcated Luftwaffe short to pilots, fuel and air-planes.

well...if u would like it realistic, then in most mission we would need a couple of hundred allied bombers and a couple of hundred fighters escorting them....we all know, that this isnt going to happen with the current performance issues. i would say, thats out of EDs power. but to choose a map fitting the current plane set is not. they can create a map historically accurate for the planes we have right now...so thats two different things imo, and creating "realistic" scenarios, would then be in the hands of the mission designers, given that they have a historical accurate map to begin with....apples and oranges i think.

besides, creating a map not historical accurate for our planes is just as time intensive and work intensive as a map that is. so why not choose the latter one?


anyway, i opened this thread to get confirmation by some ED member, if the weekend news are accurate, and that there is indeed more than 1 ww2 map currently in development.

From the Q&A with Chizh

Quote:
Q any russian regions planned (maps)

A Not right now, there are what we have now- caucasus and persian gulf, there will be a new WW2 map in europe and later some syrian stuff and probably afghanistan etc. no further details will be revealed right now because plans could change. Right now we are interested in regions that would be interesting to have “War” in with the planes we have. War with iran has kinda been in the news so we definitely plan something in that region. So in short, not right now (russian maps) but we’ll see
