AKKuya, if you will let me know the coordinates and the area needed in general I can generate something with Artik program.

I have no idea to what you're referring to.

I understood you wanted a map of Japan created. Is that not correct?

That would be great.  I'm thinking that Special Events might have one just not available.  Kinda fuzzy on the memory.

Are you a terrain builder?

Yes sir, or at least I have developed several maps, I utilize Artiks MakeaAHMap program. With it if you have the GPS coordinates and know how big an area you need, it will extract the data from sources of USGS data and replicate the area, with elevations and terrain types. That example map was generated in about 5 minutes with the Tokyo as the GPS central location.

We had a Japan Map, but it didn't make the AH3 conversion.

I suggest making two maps so they can be larger in scale.

One that includes Kyushu, Shikoku and the southern Ryuku islands (Okinawa) and another map which focuses on the Tokyo area of Honshu.

I would like for you to contact Ghostdancer and see if you two could collaborate to make these happen. I could help with an object placement map.
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

Has it been that long? I seem to recall a late war FSO with B-29s bombing Japan. Escorted by Corsairs and Mustangs vs N1K2 and Ki-84s. I know I've been doing this so long things start to run together but it didn't seem like it was that long ago!

Sorry Nefarious just read this, I assume you are talking to me? If so I will contact Ghostdancer and see what I can do to help out.
