  1. Its not just about my personal village or town missing. I can live with that very good. But my concern is that the Ruhrgebiet was and is more then 400.000km² big urban and industrial area. It's like leaving out the Krim from the Kuban map (Which is only ~26.000km²). Plus it was the main target area of the Allies as it was the industrial heart of Germany. By '44 it mostly would mostly be all in ruins, so as others stated above I would be fine with a greyish version of the no-mans-land overlaid over the map. The larger cities should all be more ruins then intact houses. Collogne was almost completly destroyed be the end of the war: I am sure framerates can benefit if you use ruins instead of inteact houses. In no way this critic should be an offence against the programmers. But in a fighter simulation the ground is much more you can crash into. Its the base for every scenario. I am sure the map will improve alot until the full release.
  2. The Image I posted is from FSX/P3D. Thats quite old now. Dont ask for a specific street or landmark added. But its a major urban area of the map.
  3. I am sure. a true scale realistic Ruhrgebiet would kill most computers. Thats why I could live with a greyish version of the no-mans-land. Most of the time you would be high above anyways. But being such a huge, dense populated area its a real shame its not just there in any form. Better a bad representation then none at all. I know you can't compare other flightsim. Especially non-combat sims. P3D/FSX Dortmund looks like this for example:
  4. They maybe could "Cheat" a bit by doing large parts like the nomansland.
  5. 1330/7-7 The Gersteinwerk in the village of between Hamm in the East (Dattel-Hamm-Kanal is labeled) and Werne in the west. It was/is a big coal powerplant. https://goo.gl/maps/GP1r5cFT9ciBKbLA8 Hamm itsel again is on the eastern end of the Ruhrgebiet and should be quite loaded with targets as well. @Jollyjack. The new FLightsiumlator will work like this. Together with Bing
  6. Bottrop is missing, Gelsenkirchen is missing Buer up in the North, Castrop-Rauxel etc. There should be a Airfield in Gelsenkirchen-Buer: The Parkstadion for the Schalke 04 soccerclub was build on it later: https://goo.gl/maps/xVfb5nvfHrFeWceN9 The famous "Panzerbau 3 in the north of Essen is missing: https://goo.gl/maps/es2ksTCEHRaSP7Hv6 Zeche Zollverein. A really huge mining complex is missing in Essen: https://goo.gl/maps/Eh3TsWnS8UTLG6Mu9 Half Essen was target area: And the Nachtscheinanlage: https://goo.gl/maps/rZbM8Vy4zbgo2SRi8 And alot more. The whole Ruhrarea is probably too huge to put in BoX. I would be content with generic city and industrial tiles with only the biggest factories and mines represented. This would still be a lot more then Moscow on the moscow map. But being 1944 you could just make the most look like Stalingrad with full of ruin.
  7. Aerial pictures of Essen in the 20s: https://www.waz.de/staedte/essen/722-luftbilder-zeigen-essen-1926-zwischen-karnap-und-kettwig-id11189922.html Baldeneysee during WW2: I knwo everyone wants his most famous landmark included. So I could rather live with generic cities, if those have the correct size.
  8. I mentioned in the Update discussion thread allready. The Ruhrgebiet is missing. From Duisburg/Essen eastwards to Dortmund it should be almost one continous city with lots of factories. Not sure If this can be done, but this is a big major landmark. The Baldeneysee (south of essen) was layed dry during the war. Close to it, to the south was a big fake factory for fooling allied Bombers. The Krupp Villa (Villa Hügel) in Essen would be a nice easteregg/Feature. It hast auch a prominent position that its very obvious that it is missing
  9. Pleased fill the area between essen and Dortmund with generic City and factory tiles. And add the Stauder brewery and Villa Hügel (Krupp mansion at the baldeneysee) as Landmarks. At least the Krupp Villa. That Thing is huge with its own train Station.
  10. If its like the command-branch like in Post Scriptum I'll be fine. Maybe add the possibility to spawn AI-flights of all kinds now and then.
  11. Wouldn't the Hurricane fit into a Burma-Campaign? As well as the Spitfire?
  12. I can see planes even before they load! Ha! But ignore them until they are 9.5km away...
  13. Maybe because its a war. Kill the enemy when he can't kill you. I don't mind it. I think its a valid tactic.
  14. Me too. Tried a few times. Get thrown back to lobby very time.
  15. Had a japanese GF at one point. She didn't had any problems reading and understanding old texts at all.
