BoN Map

Recommended Posts

My understanding is that the Normandy map will not cover London. What % increase in map area would be needed to encompass London, even assuming city structures would not be modeled?

9.82% or 12.21% depending on how you define "London".

Be a bit of a kick in the balls if the land and Thames were there without any city at all.

 

I'd love to have London on the map, as I would with Moscow being within the map boundaries.

London is subject to bombing throughout most of the war and would represent a massive strategic target in game for bombers and night fighters.

However, it's a bridge too far with the current technology. We'll have to settle with whatever London Boroughs may appear on map.

 

Besides, I'd rather see detail put into strategically important locations as well as the iconic stuff. Like Portsmouth, radar stations, terraced streets, the cliffs of Dover, Tangmere Wings airfields, Stonehenge ect.

 

The same goes for France. It'd be awesome to see the bocage represented with hedgerows, Caen, Dieppe, Calais, the Atlantic wall, Falaise ect.

Sadly Dunkirk and Amiens got chopped off the map and look to be just out of reach. :(

Either way. For me the appeal of the map is making cross channel sweeps at first light :biggrin:

I think we might be able to see London and Paris as we do with Moscow. At the edge of the map and usable for Navigation. I really hope for this!

 

See you in the skies!

Sorry, but London and Paris are not on the map.

How many times has that phrase been uttered sheepishly?

 

I am eager to hug the waves in a Mosquito, racing towards an important target on the continent.

Jason, do you already know how to depict the building-up phase of all the auxiliary airfields in France?

It's probably going to be a pre- and post- map each, right?

...and then crash into the french coast, because the weather-guesser back home guessed a wrong altimeter-setting. 🙈

Honestly, this map will be a huge undertaking without the addition of more large cities!
