Its a balancing act, trying to bring something that is functional and visually appealing for the community. We are also looking at the possibility of including (maybe at a later date) a map which doesn't have MPA shown. Although I believe you are able to remove scenery from the map through the mission editor. This is the South Atlantic map, which can also be used for the Falkland Conflict however I personally want the map to be visually appealing to the community for the many aspects that DCS offers. Thanks again for the interest. Specter

Specter[/QUOTE] Thanks, yes I know the reason of adding the base for a bigger spectrum of usage, but in the end I think most of the users want to fly Sea Harrier, Pucarà and MB-339 in this map:D By the way, I remember the option for vehicles, ships, and aircraft to indicate the era of usage, I don't know if runways and static objects can be affected too.

Specter[/QUOTE] Many of us want the map for 1982 conflict, I understand your point adding Mount Pleasant, and the more the merrier, but the option to erase it completely should be there, so we can simulate a better 1982 war. Specially with the 1982 AI assets you guys are building as well. Thanks.
I don't understand anything in russian except Davai Davai!

Maybe an option to have two maps? Or make a logic-only Mount pleasant and make a prefab of its objects placeable in the mission editor? Regarding quality, I can clearly see polygons and vertexes of the terrain - no go for 2020, hope this improves. I'm not expecting anything photoreal, just on par with Nevada or Gulf.

Just from a logical standpoint if a big tile could be defined which would included Mount Pleasant AB and the area surrounding it which had post '82 buildings. Then you could use the definition of this tile as the basis for pre- and post-82. Both would have the exact same landscape edges, so one or the other could be dropped in seamlessly without issue, and the devs could put on whatever they wished each tile; the pre- having maybe just a road and a sheep pen or whatever, with post- have the airfield and it's buildings. This would prevent having to have two complete maps to install, but I don't think ED has the technology to do something like this at this time, nor if they are working on or planning to work on this or something similar.

The map is looking great, the continental bases are also planned, because otherwise it would not make much sense. It would be like making a map of only Martin Garcias Island in the Rio de la Plata ... without the coasts of Argentina and Uruguay Saludos.

The new Syria map seems really good, but the Falklands maps will offer so much more content wise. With the very large number of assets being included with the theater we will have the first true comprehensive map to play with. No other DCS map at this time offer a true relevant environment. The South Atlantic map will. This is the project I'm the most interested in for a few months now - excepting DCS core enhancements.

Why does Razbam just keep ignoring requests, from a large portion of the DCS community, to post regular updates on this official ED forum. Is it so much to ask to simply post those FB video's on this forum as well?
