This is truly excellent!!!!

A pity there isn't a terrain available that covers all the Fighter Command and Luftflotte areas...

That is awesome! I was thinking the other day about a small mod of the battle britain:

Couple of fighters

An "airborne" version of southern england/northern france with a select amount of targets - airfield, radar, bunkers, etc. Not infantry detailed, the larger (ie real scale) the better.

Couple of bombers

Then base the whole gameplay around the bombers and fighters. Fighters fight each other and have to take out the bombers, bombers try to destroy the enemy ground facilities.

The chenarus landscape is ideal for this era and a scaled down map coast to coast would be great. Narrow the chanel etc. Biggin Hill to Lille ;).

Something like this maybe...???

... scale isn't too bad and it covers all the Important Places (and wales :rolleyes: )... or maybe it might be better to focus down more to just the SE of England and the opposite coast?

I guess it's just a question of if you prefer to fly over mostly water or mostly terrain... Also worth considering is the fact that someone else is currently doing the Brittany area to a much larger scale... Biggin Hill to Lille could be a better idea...

I'll see what it looks like in-game.....

Land is better, less taxing on pc.

I was thinking this area with the channel narrowed so you could slide more of England into the picture. Land would be the premium.

More suitable to bombing runs either way. Just a thought.

... and I could dig up some old ships and boats for strafing. :)

Another addition I have been toying with is clouds.

These include view geo which blocks anything from the top centre radar/vision screen, this means that the AI can not see you either.

Still working on the right txtr mix but it adds to the game without taking away from the FPS.

CSJ you probs wanna think about creating 3d clouds in stead of using a texture plain. I think nim made so good clouds with one of his weather addons. either way its cool one of the things i love about flying is that no matter how crappy a day look from the ground, everyday is beautiful above the clouds. Getting that into arma2 would be awesome.

Please do, these could be used in several other scenarios too :)

A bomber or two to shoot down wouldn't go amiss either. Hope this attracts people to make more vintage aircraft addons :)

Thumbs up. Just took the FW-109 for a little test flight against a hurricane and the AI had some pretty good evasion moves at the beginning, really really nice for an OFP based game!

A shame about those swastikas. Such a tiny texture forbids german hosters to add this otherwise nice addon to our database - i know it´s stupid,

and some people would even start telling me we´re just sweeping history under the carpet, but that´s german law.

On the con side there´s the menu screens. I´ve nothing against adding your own flavour ... but please just don´t compress them as much. It´s all over with artifacts *ugly* Rather capture as png and convert that to paa, no quality loss that way.

but I unfortunately do not need for our server key, without go to anything

I´m willing to bet that CSJ has put his key on OFPEC for download.

Learn your standards ;)

edit: Yusss! Landed on USS Khe Sanh. Stopped only 10 meters short of the edge :thumb_down:
