So beautiful! What I like best is that they're so clear you don't have to use them spread all over the screen to be able to read them, even with these old man eyes.  :salute

I've got an older system by today's standards that still runs the game well by my standards.

That's because old-man eyes are in the skull of the person who made the blue-line maps!   :cheesy:

FYI, I have other versions of these with notes in "pencil" (i.e. gray graphics) that show bomb runs, deacking runs, ord porking runs, best GV approach into town, etc.  So the version of these blue line maps that I actually have loaded and use are heavily marked up.

Is there a way to put in Longitude and latitude lines? 

Another question, what is a good, not expensive, program for modifying screen shots of locations for tactical and planning purposes?  I kind of like the idea of having a map/photo of a target area like the ack towers of strat targets. 
While flying yesterday, I was able to take out most of the guns int he act tower with bombs.  They were to be down for 73 minutes which would give enough time for a few aircraft to destroy just about everything  :x

Thanks guys.  My maps are evolving at the moment.  I'm adding terrain elevation features and, on the port map, I experimented and I'm working on the trees west of the field.  I probed and found 10 routes that you can get a tank through the trees, inbound and outbound.

Port map with routes through trees.




EDIT- Just realized I left out the gun pit and grid number layers.  Will post revised version later.

On the town map, what are those numbers and letters. I guess the vertical letters are small, medium and large. What are the others, please.
