Default Mount pleasant airbase poll

Recently Razbam mentioned the possibility of adding Mount pleasant Airbase, since this base came after the conflict they want your input.

Now its over to us, simply vote on weather you think the base should or shouldn't be added.

Nah, I think that the map should be as close as possible to the actual era of the conflict. It's a shame there's no way to add or remove an airbase depending on the date used in game.

This! Having the base there would be really awkward when creating historic missions.

Not quite what you mean, but you can use "scenery remove objects zone" and "scenery destruction zone" to get rid off any buildings of the airport. As for the runway itself ... no clue how to get rid of that.

I am really aplit on this... I'm all about authenticity and I really look forward to the 1982 conflict, but the more utility the map has the better. I voted put it in because I can ignore an airbase, but whatever is chosen I won't be upset.

I would much rather have the Island to 1982 spec.
With no Mount Pleasant airbase and with Port Stanley as the only paved runway.


Preferably with the Port Stanley runway the length it was during the war,


Though i would be Ok with the port stanley runway being given the extended post war length (it was extended using aluminium planking soon after the war ended to allow F4 Phantoms to be based there) if the alternative is adding Mount Pleasant as that would still make it so there is a runway able to accept most aircraft without changing the map in a more significant way.

My opinion is that Mount Pleasant allow for more options regarding missions that are not based on the Falklands War.


You can make a Warsaw Pact vs. NATO in the South Atlantic scenario.
