Rev. 3

Thanks for the suggestions.

Removed the small islands to give TGs more room to maneuver.
Switched a few bases from air to gv.
Enabling Me-163s at A18, A62, and A101 would create some distance from the strats and could make some fun at nearby airfields.  (Not sure if HTC would approve.)

I see the center island as the defining feature of the map.  Without it, I think the map would be too similar to others to have a place in the rotation.  If players just don't like it, I'll drop the map and move on.  Yes/No?

I like the island I would just lose the big fields and swap one of the small ones for a vh.
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

Bullet drop convergence test.  Bf109F-4 20mm and 7.9mm.  Convergence set at 300yds, target range of 100, 300, and 500yds.  (Target cross-hairs don't always align perfectly with gunsight pipper, so best to use the pipper as the aim point.)

Thinking about a winter map based on the Falkland Islands.  (Have to add a few small islands to make the field layout work.)

Any interest in another winter map?

Only after you all make the North America map! A set of strats can be in Texas at HT HQ :banana:

I have a North America map just waiting to be completed, need to make some changes to allow naval movement around the perimeter.

Kong, I think Falklands would be a great map.

Another version of the Falklands map.  This layout is designed to focus the fights and discourage 2v1 piling on.  (If that's possible....)

Field layout pretty much done, but haven't put them in the terrain yet.  Adding islands and opening up ship lanes a bit.  Weather mostly done.  Still experimenting with this and that.   :D
