I couldn't understand it in IL2, all they way through to the first patch in FB. We still have that big thick border around the inflight map.

Duuuuhhhh! looks like they just can't see the darn thing. Reminds me of a leather picture frame with stiches to make it look like a western something or other.

WHY can't we just have a map with No BORDER it would make the sim look a lot more hi-tech and maybe give us a little more visibility.

WHY not?

Sorry, I've mentioned this before. Does the map border just irritate me or is it a nuisance to others as well?

Course if Oleg's wife designed it and thinks it should be there...well it's gonna be there /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif That I can understand LOL

I agree - the border takes up WAY too much space.

Also the map should move to always keep the aircraft centered - or is there a way to do this and I just don't know about it?

You have the aircraft on your map?
What you flying? The Cessna with a GPS? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm kidding.

It's suppose to be a knee board map. As if you were looking down at yer knee. An attempt for realism, figured you total emersion people would like that. Kinda seems funny that you could see planes on a knee board map don''t it... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I found it helps to move the map to the lower right of the screen.

I move it to the point where the border is hidden. That at least gives me a little more freed up area

It would be more immersive if you only saw the map when you look down into the bottom of cockpit. That way you don't have to turn it on or off all the time. Just look down.
