[ACKNOWLEDGED] RAF Akrotiri


Recommended Posts

Apparently no. There's comments in FB saying it's a bit far away and out of the map's scope.

Cyprus Should have been a Priority !!!

Been an Air Traffic Controller at Nicosia Area Control Center I can see every day Eurofighters plus an A332 Tanker get airborne from Akrotiri and going into Syria for a Mission ( Patrol , bombing etc...) !!

P.s. Last year RAF used to use Tornados !!

I hope that Someday they will add Cyprus in Syria Map .

Yep, hope in the end even if it's out of the map's detailed area they put it in there, but…

I lived in Cyprus for a number years and guarded RAF Akrotiri because the RAF were not capable of doing it themselves ( this is an Army joke poking fun at the RAF :) )

 

Sadly Cyprus is not in the scope for this terrain, but if there was a chance I would be right behind it.

 

thanks

Ah I see the PONGO in you strikes again.......don't forget your own knife fork spoon and plate and don't let the door hit you on the way out LOL :megalol:

 

The only good thing about that duty was all the duty meals you could go for - breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, the RAF lived like kings lol :megalol:

Sad but expected. I would have to say, "i'd pay for Cyprus"

 

How could we go about still championing the idea of getting Cyprus added if we are likely to buy the Syria map on it's existing features?

 

I think it's a bit of a shady marketing move to say that "it's not planned, but might come, if it sells well".

Honestly, that's not treating the potential customers with the respect they deserve. Better to make absolutely clear, that there won't be cyprus, no matter what. Make sure people buy it for what it is.

If you later decide, for whatever reasons, that you want to include cyprus, it would come as a pleasant surprise.

I will make it absolutely clear for you.

 

Cyprus is not planned.

 

But who knows what the future can hold? if plans change we would let you know.

 

thanks

Thanks, that's better. But also sad.

 

It's difficult.

 

There's a time and cost involved in making these maps. If the sales are strong, then adding extra features is justified. If sales are not strong, then the developers need to move on to something else.

 

I'm glad it is no longer an outright "no" and they are opening the door, just a crack, to the potential of doing this at some point in the future.

No Cyprus is an unfulfilled map...

But I will be one of the first to buy the map of Syria

Please re-think the Cyprus case, RAF Akrotiri would make so much sense! The airbase would need to be high detail, but other things of Cyprus wouldn't need to be super detailed, since we'd really only depart and come back. So no need for a highly detailed city of Larnaca if that's not feasible.

But RAF Akrotiri is a must :)

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

It would make sense to have Cyprus in...at least the airport (could be the only detailed thing of the island)...let’s hope for the future, would be nice with the Ef2000 and hopefully the Tornado

The RAF were not stupid enough to do it themselves, i believe is the customary come-back :lol:
