The first recon photos has been added, and it is the Coral Sea mission (coral_sea_13_april.mis)

You will find the photos in the GALLERY (http://www.flygflottilj16.se/e107_plugins/coppermine_menu/)

A tip is to navigate to the album, and sort the files by filename.

Here is a brief explanation to the text on the pictures.

PID = Picture ID
100 = Picture ID number
100A = Blowup / Zoom of designated area in main Photo.

As you might notice there is a negative image of each photo, wich is pretty useful for printing.

More recon images will be up as time progresses!
Keep checking back for new photos!


Please check it out and comments are welcome.. both good and bad ofcourse...

Well they are marked in a X-Y axle (numbers and letters)

So you can refer with other players..

However these first shots are of open sea and ships, and are quite dull.

Just wait until you see some landscape and targets.

Here are some old ones... and these are basically just overwiev images..
only for reference.
No targets can be seen at this scale/altitude/zoom

F16_Petter,

I included 13 "recon photos" in my "Straight and True" torpedo bomber campaign available at Airwarfare.com. They were marked up with notes, arrows, circles, etc. and are quite detailed. I included both color versions and black and white ones.

Never got a single comment on them sorry to say. Not sure people actually look at this kind of stuff. Not trying to rain on your parade, just letting you know my experience with recon photos.

Yep, I know that it is that way in some ways... some play serious... and some play it like an arcade game

But still mainly I created these for our server and because in our squad we fly with printouts of maps and perhaps in the future some of these images. We want our players of our server to have "immersion factor adding content" (briefings,recons, units database etc etc..) except from the gameplay itself..

But, still... I know what you mean, but if you dont want to use them its all okay.

Well, Zeus-cat, I guess one does these things also for personal enjoiment.

Funily enough I was toying with the same idea yesterday just to get some debate in our squadron about dogfight maps in Murmansk. Not really useful, but it was fun making them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Map+Recon 3 (http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/forums/WinterWar_map_03.jpg)

But definitely nothing as pro as yours Petter. Those land pics are ace.

thats cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

think some raf planes used 2 cameras, and the results where overlapped to give a good 3d effect.

my fav recon photo is actully a oblique, theres a guy with something in his hands and hes lookin up at the camera, and hes thinking doh!
in the background is a radar station http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

need to have recon pics avalible ingame. those who sit properly unlike me could wear boots, and stuff the photos and maps into there boots http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'd make recon photos too if the guys in my squad would use them, but they hardly read the briefing if it is over two paragraphs long.

If you want, send me an email at zeuscat@sbcglobal.net and I can send you my "photos". It might give you some ideas.
